10/10 would pay for this if it cost money.


Playing the game is pretty funny. What you read here is pretty straightforward; you are a strategist for the democratic party and are planning the next election. However, what this game really is...I honestly don't know. I found it funny and just fun/mindless time waisting but I feel bad that I don't really understand the concept or the message. Is it that the system is broken? Well, either way, you can't beat a free game and it's still fun to dink around with!

I haven't tried it yet so I don't know whether the game is good or not but it annoys me that we don't have the choice between trump or dems. We absolutely and imperatively HAVE to play against him for the simple sake of virtue signaling . Look whether you agree with him or not, I think we can all agree that giving the players as much choice as possible is always going to make for a better game


Well, I hope you were able to play the game by now becuse...without giving anything away, it really is way more simplified then what you thought prior to playing.


Yeah! It made me actually roll on the floor of laughter. It was so incredibly abrupt that I just couldn’t stop laughing. You got me there
