Presidential Election: the Board Game Up On Kickstarter
There’s a presidential debate on tonight here in the US. It’s sure to be… interesting, to say the least. Debates are certainly a cornerstone of the election process. They’re also a big part of Presidential Election: The Board Game, which is up on Kickstarter now and hoping to get your vote (by that, I mean your money. They hope to get your money. Not unlike the actual presidential election, too. 😉 ).
In the game, you’ll take on the role of one of the contenders for the leader of the free world. Collect votes while gaining money through scandals. Just be careful, as your scandals can be revealed by your opponent (unless you’re able to play a cover up, that is). Play to the media’s favor and earn even more votes. The pollsters are ready to let you know how you’re doing. Just make sure the bodies are in the voting booths and pushing the button next to your name come election day.
The campaign (on Kickstarter, that is) is up and running now. They’re already more than 2x their goal with still 45 days left to go.
