Takako Saito’s Liquor Chess meets Guy Debord’s The Game of War

“Although I have read a lot, I have drunk even more. I have written much less than most people who write, but I have drunk more than most people who drink.”

Stefan Lutschinger will be introducing a screening and discussion of the new Russian language version of Class Wargames Presents Guy Debord’s The Game of War which was partly filmed at the Russian State Hermitage Museum.

After watching this movie, we shall affectionately recreate Takako Saito’s Liquor Chess as Guy Debord’s The Game of War. Reds play shotglasses filled with Vodka Mors (Russian cranberry juice), Whites play Vodka Lemon.

Chess is the cradle of wargames, but one cannot remain in the cradle forever!
