Test your skills as a Court Jew! is a simple online game in which the player answers multiple choice questions about how a calculating factotum can use "intelligence, savvy and luck" to build a fortune in the eighteenth century despite disenfranchisement as a member of a religious minority. One can play as either a male or a female character pursuing business opportunities and doing favors for the powerful. Given the anti-Semitic reception history associated with the Jud Süß story, it may seem an odd choice for an educational game from the German Jewish Museum in Berlin.
