About the game:
Mensch ärgere Dich nicht! is among the 100 best known brands in Germany (according to Deutsche Standards). Many companies have used the Mensch ärgere Dich nicht! brand to convey their standards. Its positive image has helped airlines who don’t want their passengers to be annoyed by delays and car rental companies looking to smooth over customer irritation.
In the 1950s classic film “Wonderful Times”, actor Heinz Rühmann described Mensch ärgere Dich nicht! as a wise and educational game, which teaches players how to be good losers.” And he was right. In 1987, the Spiegel news magazine declared it “the nation’s most popular game”, which was easy to believe given its sales of over 100 million copies. For over 100 years the dice game has been a source of fun and annoyance for players across Germany. And it is this very combination that has made Mensch ärgere Dich nicht! THE mother of all games. There are now various different versions of the original, which for its part remains almost unchanged, because even now, the simplicity of the design clearly represents the values of the game.
The triumph of this famous best-seller began 1914 in the trenches of World War I. The game with the colorful wooden skittles was taken to the battlefields from the military hospitals to which Josef Friedrich Schmidt donated 3,000 first edition copies. When German soldiers returned home at the end of the war, many did not only bring a knapsack of memories, but also Mensch ärgere Dich nicht! (Don’t stress about it!). With its rules that allow for getting ahead, blocking opponents and mercilessly casting their counters off the board, the game quickly became source of fun family entertainment up and down the country.
This was all much to the joy of Josef Friedrich Schmidt, who was becoming the highly regarded owner of a small games company. Just two years after the end of World War I, the somewhat sullen looking man was staring into the living rooms of Germans from more than a million red game boxes. To date, the company has sold over 100 million copies of what for many is the ultimate board game, and so often an addictive introduction into the pleasurable world of game playing.
