    2. Oops, you live next to a Natura 2000 site! Nitrogen emissions must be reduced by 90 percent in your region. Get in your tractor and drive to the minister’s house (9).

    3. You are Caroline van der Plas. Continue to 62.

    5. A financial windfall! Three agro-billionaires from the Quote 500 are kind enough to support you in organizing a nationwide protest. Continue to Stroe (25).

    8. Kukeleku! You got up very early to prepare food for the whole of the Netherlands (and abroad). You may throw again.

    10. Stoop! You work for the NOS and want to report on the farmers’ protest. Remove all stickers from your van and microphone. Skip three turns.

    11. You are driving with sixty tractors on the A7 near Drachten around a police blockade, across the hard shoulder and against traffic, but you have taped your license plate. Move forward three spaces.

    13. Choice stress! You really want to watch TV but you are unsure between Farmer seeks wife (KRONCRV), Our farm (KRONCRV), Farmer Ayoub (KRONCRV), New Farmers (KRONCRV) and The little farm (KRONCRV). Wait for a fellow player to pass you.

    16. In an interview in de Volkskrant As the foreman of a militant farmers’ organization, you call the frightened children of the minister to whom you stood at the door with twelve tractors ‘pussy’s’. Go to Stroe (25) to be cheered.

    23. You live just past Stroe and you just really want to go home. Skip seven turns.

    26. To compress! You want to go on a school trip with your classmates, but the entire A1 is closed. Skip a year.

    29. Pop! You are not paying attention and collide with a tractor on the A12 with your truck. Three injured. Skip six turns.

    33. Nitrogen? If it’s up to you, everything in your area looks really healthy. Move forward three spaces.

    35. A doll hangs from a gallows above a viaduct, but that is not a threat but a reference to the large number of suicides in the agricultural sector. Throw again.

    37. Of course it is not good to threaten politicians, but politicians should bear in mind that farmers are also threatened by them. Throw again.

    41. The farmers make your food and you are against intimidating protests, but you really want food. hypocritical. Skip two turns.

    45. You go on a date with farmer Anton (Salzburg) and attract one and a half million viewers! Move forward two spaces.

    48. You are Joost Eerdmans, Geert Wilders, Wybren van Haga or Gideon van Meijeren and although you usually prefer to avoid stable odors, you have a nose for electoral gain. One seat up.

    49. Ooh, a barn fire! Roughly 120,000 pigs (and the barn) are going up in smoke. Fortunately, you are well insured. One place ahead.

    50. African swine fever is advancing in Germany and Eastern Europe! Bales for the 11 million pigs in our country, of course. Hope it blows over. Two spots ahead.

    52. God damn it: bird flu! Clearing costs and the value of the more than 3 million chickens culled this year are fortunately reimbursed from the Animal Health Fund. Throw again!

    57. You have adapted to new regulations for years and, after being urged by the various Rutte cabinets, you have expanded your company many times, and now you have to decimate at once. Go to 60.

    59. Heartily! As a former state secretary in Rutte I, you are partly responsible for the current nitrogen crisis, but you are also the organizer of the protest in Stroe and you can sit down with Humberto. Your name is Henk Bleker.

    60. You are worried about your company/the state of the country, but the Prime Minister is nowhere to be seen. Go back to Home.

    62. You are Caroline van der Plas. Move forward one place.
