A virtual board game based on a Japanese marionette TV show, exclusive to the Japanese Mega Drive. Compete to become the new President of the island!

Overview

Hyokkori Hyoutanjima: Daitouryou wo Mezase! (roughly "Unexpected Contradiction Island: Aim to be President!") is a virtual board game similar to The Game of Life or Namco's Momotaru Dentetsu series in which the goal for each participant is to build their public appeal through random chance squares in a competition to become the new President of the island.

Hyokkori Hyoutanjima: Daitouryou wo Mezase! is based on a 1960s Japanese marionette TV show, Hyokkori Hyoutanjima, about an island of eccentrics including a politician, a pirate, a gangster, and a teacher who led an expedition to the island with a group of schoolchildren. Specifically, the game is based on a brief 1991 revival of the same show.
