The game of life, reimagined for a superaging society

Japan's Community Coping, a “superaging society” board game, is intended to be a microcosm of the myriad socioeconomic problems facing citizens of the world’s most rapidly aging society.

"I played the “superaging society” board game in which players are tasked with preventing graying communities from collapsing. And it's much more difficult than one might think - as it is in real life."

"A single game lasts 10 years, from 2021 to 2030. If more than four residents are left in any of the districts after a round, the community is overwhelmed and collapses. Game over."
