Quiz-Mania [next Migros promotion]

Here we go again!
Just when you thought you'd got over the stress of Nanomania, Migros have introduced their next instalment of kids pressure and parent hassle - coming soon, to a store near you.

Quiz-Mania

It appears to be a Trivial Pursuit type, nature-based (WWF) board game - with the question cards (of which I'm sure they will be many) being the point of collection.

It starts tomorrow (10/5 - 20/6), and normal rules apply regarding card sachets given out per CHF20 spent; special Joker days for only CHF60 (25/5, 1/6 & 8/6); bonus days for double packs (18/5), and other associated goodies to be purchased at bargain prices in-store (while stocks last).

You read it here first.
You have been warned - so no excuses.

.... and Good luck!
Finally...... remember, be careful out there (it'll be a jungle).

For educational and entertainment value, it has the potential to turn out to be one of the better ones, to date - we'll only know after the event, by then it's too late.

Re: Quiz-Mania [next Migros promotion]

I'm so thankful that Hieber's and Marktkauf (in Germany) don't go in for this sort of nonsense.

Maybe that's why groceries are 30% cheaper in Germany than in Switzerland.

ditto.. we love Hiebers. We take the slightly longer drive out to the Grenzach one, as its huge, spacious and newer, and better coffee shop, and huge and newer, spacious..

I'm repeating myself again aren't I....

We've got loads in French too. I'll do an inventory tonight and see what I can offer you. We only need 26 cards for the set now although I guess it's not quite so for this one as you can play the game with as many cards as you want.

Re: Quiz-Mania [next Migros promotion]

I was only thinking this morning, after my Joker trip to Migros, how this latest promotion, being of more educational and entertainment worth, than the last Nanomania one, seems to have generated much less interest - resulting in the kids having much more limited swapping options (at least at my daughters' school).
[and that this thread has received minimal posts compared to previous ones]

Is this a sign of the times - that kids are happier collecting and "playing" with useless funny faced bits of plastic**, than playing informative board games - or that everyone has just had enough of the unnecessary pressures that these promotions are now starting to have on parents?

Or as I suspect - and what Migros hopes for - the act of collecting alone, swapping and completing the set is goal enough, in itself.


**
both of mine have pots full of all kinds of free plastic rubbish that comes in Kinder Surprise eggs, a brand of crisps (Jou-Jou or something), and of course not forgetting Happy Meals.

Yes I am also happy that I it´s not so improtant to get all the cards. I just decided to try to give it a try. Swapping here has always been "succesful" in here.

Kids loves to open the envelopes when they know there is some "maina things" coming to them. They are so happy when they can cross over the numbers they are missing and in the same time they are happy to help others to finish their collections.


But anyway 26 is yours

Did you see the post by Ka Pai above?

The 30 packs are being offered. You can see what spares they create and offer the spares back here on the thread.

Wow 30??!

I have about 10 packets (1 opened out of curiousity) in German so far. Am sure we'll have more to come as we do majority of our shopping at Migros.

Happy to send to anyone if they contribute onto this thread to trade with other members.

Re: Quiz-Mania [next Migros promotion]

Hi everyone

I will certainly have spare ones (in German) when finished collecting here. I will post a list to give away next week

This time Migros made a better product than the nano's, I think, not only do we (in this house) get to practice our German skills, but we get to know more details about many things, persons and places in CH too

Although some of the Swiss persons (in particular) and smaller mountains I find incredible difficult to remember or even pronounce...

So I fail to answer correctly on several Swiss issues, break my tounge on others and finally I seem to be a true treasure on issues concerning Skandinavien

Great fun nevertheless and as said I would be happy to share with any one and will make a list next week.

Have a nice weekend (as I will not return to EF until next week).

Luben
