As expected, everyone seems to be talking politics and taking action these days, including pop culture icons like Anna Wintour, Donna Karan and even Mario Batali. With all that is happening, sorting through the many nuances and strategies of an election can feel a bit daunting – unless of course, you can make a game of it.
Enter The Presidential Game, created by well-known Wall Street exec Regina Glocker. Not your childhood Milton Bradley, I know, but probably your best chance at being Leader of the Free World. Not to mention a great conversation starter at your next cocktail party.
Perfect for both political junkies and the campaign clueless alike, The Presidential Game is a new strategy game that educates players about the U.S. Presidential Election in a fun, digestible way. Visually concepted by the talented father-and-son graphic design duo of Russ and Christopher Patrick, The Presidential Game is set on a beautifully designed map of the U.S. showing the Electoral College votes of each state. From there, Team Democrat and Team Republican battle it out to gain control of each state and win 270 or more electoral votes.
Available online and at notable retailers including The Smithsonian Institution, The Presidential Game is all-ages friendly and guaranteed to provide some healthy discussion at your next social gathering.
