The MWYO Youth Office, headed by Liu Mingwei, has recently launched the first set of table games that simulates Hong Kong’s political ecology, “Storm of Intrigue”. Players can choose to become an established system, a pan-democrat or a centrist, and experience the political power, intrigue, and even unscrupulous means. Personal political goals.

Liu Mingwei, who is the vice chairman of the Youth Development Committee, said that the game allows players to understand the positions of different people through empathy, and to appreciate the intricate connections behind politics.

As for whether his "target card" will serve as the director or even the chief executive, Liu Mingwei categorically said that he "has no interest at all." At present, he only wants to be the chairman and youth of the Ocean Park.

Liu Mingwei acts as a centrist enough to "ride the fence"

The board game "Storm of Might" is based on the MWYO Youth Office's research project "Game of Thrones: Hong Kong Youth Politics Secrets". It allows young people interested in Hong Kong politics to experience the political situation in Hong Kong through the game. Players can choose to play the establishment or democrats. Or centrists, each with different political capital, skills, obstacles and political goals.

Players need to use tool cards and experience different events to accumulate the five major indexes of popularity, financial resources, politics, connections and pro-China, in exchange for power; in the process, they need to speculate on the political goals of other players, take the enemy's chance first, sometimes instigate discord, and use clever words. Sometimes win over political opponents and trade under the table.

In recent years, Liu Mingwei, the director of MWYO, who has served in many public positions, personally confronted reporters. He played the role of a journalist and played a role in many controversial events. For example, he supported "Lantau Tomorrow" but opposed the establishment of the "Youth Development Council." Carry out the centrist "riding the fence" positioning to obtain "energy coins" and achieve political goals as quickly as possible.

Liu Mingwei pointed out that the launch of political board games hopes to present Hong Kong politics in another way, so that young people who like to play board games can try to look at politics from a different perspective and understand different positions.

Guo Dongwang, a researcher at MWYO and author of "Storm of Might", pointed out that many young people are interested in politics, but they are two different things from going to politics and observing from the side. The game allows players to experience the entanglement of making every political decision.

Players need to express their views on social events. Liu Mingwei, who plays the "centre" in the game, was drawn to the establishment of the "Youth Development Bureau" event. In order to earn "energy points," he voted against it.

The game card is close to the current situation, the "preview" national security law appears

The preparations for "Storm of Tactics" have taken more than a year, and the social events in the game are quite close to the current situation. For example, "The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress has included the "National Security Law" in Annex III", "The government plans to issue "Lantau Tomorrow Bonds", etc. Guo Dongwang pointed out that during the preparation process, it is necessary to update the content from time to time and make predictions about the future, hoping to make the game closer to the real situation, and "foresee" the emergence of different events, including the "United States Suspension of Hong Kong Relations Act" and "Democrats in the Legislative Council 35+ "Wait.

The game world is full of intrigues and struggles. Is it close to real politics?

Liu Mingwei, who recently took over the "Hot Potato" Ocean Park, said that any society has a similar situation and hopes to present it in the game as much as possible. "Students to the University of Politics 101 are completely two worlds. It is necessary for young people to participate in civil society. Only rely on theory and textbooks to experience."

Called "completely uninterested" as an official

Liu Mingwei, 40, has been actively participating in public office in recent years. It has been reported that he intends to join the hot kitchen. In the battle with reporters this time, he was drawn by coincidence to become the accountable director. Is this Liu Mingwei's "target card" in reality?

He categorically stated that he "has no interest at all." Whether it is the secretary or chief executive, there is no "target card" set to become the chief executive. Because of the high conditions, his personal "target card" is to do Ocean Park and youth work.

As for how to play political games well, Liu Mingwei said with a smile that he is unscrupulous in the game, and he is determined to save points towards political goals. Politicians in reality may also do the same, but most people will not admit it, but think some people are. Serve the society sincerely.

"Storm of Tactics" is scheduled to go on sale in October and currently produces about hundreds of boxes. Liu Mingwei said that in the future, he will meet with political parties and introduce them. "I really want to do it myself. The panminists try to feel like an establishment, and the establishment also try to become a panmin," to get rid of the role setting in real politics.
