(Agence France-Presse) Wonder what it was like to queue for hours for toilet paper or butter in communist-era Poland? Now you can experience the ‘boredom’ thanks to a foreign-language version of a hit Polish history-in-a-box board game.

The new multilingual, Monopoly-style “Kolejka” or “Queue” was unveiled with fanfare — and fun — recently by the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN), a state office set up to document recent history and prosecute Nazi and communist-era crimes.

“Kolejka has been called ‘the world’s most boring game’, but ask anyone who has queued in any communist country in the ’70s and ’80s and they’ll tell you there’s nothing more boring,” joked IPN historian Tomasz Ginter.
