This title of this game refers to the infamous incident in 2008 when French President Nicolas Sarkozy, while wading through a sea of citizens, was caught on camera saying, "Casse-toi, pauvre con!" (more or less "Get lost, idiot") to a man who refused to shake his hand.
In Casse-toi Pov'con! you take on the role of either a right or left-wing politician (with names like Nicolas or Ségolène). There are certain types of people you like to meet, and others whom you would rather avoid. Ever present journalists can also be an irritating nuisance.
A stack of cards, representing a large crowd of people, is spread on the table. All players simultaneously race to find the types of cards that agree with their chosen politician. Some cards, however, cause your character stress. When you pass a certain threshold beyond which you cannot keep your cool (8 stress points), you stop searching through cards to yell "Casse-toi pauvre con!" and then the round ends. You track your popularity points on the score track. Whoever is the most popular at the end of the game will win the election!
