#MissingTheMesse - Remembering the Frankfurt Book Fair
A chance to take part in the Digital Science #MissingTheMesse game & win a goody bag!
If, like the Publishing Team at Digital Science, you are sad to be missing out on that unique combination of joy (reuniting with friends, inspiring meetings, double-scoop Mövenpick cones) and harm (lack of sleep, skipping meals, and astonishingly sore feet) that only Frankfurt Book Fair delivers, fear not! We have designed a fantastic game for you to get involved with and the chance to win a DS goody bag. The German word Schadenfreude (meaning harm and joy) was the inspiration for Digital Science’s #MissingTheMesse game and we’re hoping you’ll join in.
Here’s how it works:
- Create a new compound German word by stringing together two or more standalone ones that communicate a sense of the Frankfurt Book Fair all us Messe veterans can relate to. (Hint: Google Translate is your friend for this part.)
- Tweet it alongside your English definition.
- You can even go the extra mile and use it in a sentence or include a picture. Memes are welcome too. Get creative and have fun with it!
Be sure to tag us @digitalsci plus the hashtags #MissingTheMesse and #FBM20 because we’re awarding first-place and runner-up goody bag prizes, and we don’t want to miss your tweet.
Here’s an example to get you going:
Treffenbierschlafen (meeting – beer – sleep) The non stop train of meetings followed by beer and then followed by a short sleep. It’s been non stop Tréffenbierschlafen, has anyone got any coffee?
