DOWNLOAD GAME & MORE INFO
“Ordnungswissenschaft” is a physical game in which four players are moving stacked boxes according to rigid instructions.
The players have to execute these instructions in the given order and can only determine when to execute, not what to execute. They will be part of a narrow procedural system and thus become machine-like in terms of carrying out predefined actions. More precisely, they will stack the boxes and move them. Nonetheless, the players have to apply their human intuition and their wit in order to influence the course of the game and win.
Ordnungswissenschaft employs physical movement, intuition as well as quick strategic thinking within a seemingly limited framework of strict instructions.
