During the game each player selects a role to play. In Footsteps in Russia these roles include a:

    – Farm Laborer trying to survive another devastating winter when nighttime apparel includes coats, hats, mitts, and felted wool boots.

– Street Vendor hawking everything from watches, to antiques, to paintings of the old city on Torgovaya Street scraping to get by.

– Engineer spending up to 70% of their monthly budget on food, which means that such things as coats or shoes means not eating some meals.

– Manager working long hours and then collapsing in front of the TV in the evenings to watch novosti, but able to spend vacation time abroad in the U.S. or Europe.

– Business Owner enjoying frequent rounds of golf, attending the Spirit of Russia Charity Ball in London, and sending children to boarding school in Switzerland.

Many of us living in developed countries have no concrete idea of how the other half lives. Even those living in depressed areas of our own country have it so much better than many living in emerging market countries.

Footsteps gives players a new perspective on life as millions of people around the world live it. Playing Footsteps in Russia, one player commented, “It was great to be the millionaire Russian businessman accumulating more and more wealth while learning of the many opportunities for those with rubles to spend.”

The goals of Footsteps include raising the awareness of players to the complexities of life that residents of each country face, and planting seeds of curiosity that may stimulate players to learn more about emerging market countries and explore how they might be personally involved in improving the life of the people who live there.
