Ratings and Reviews
Short good game
The game is pretty fun and is very interesting, but there are some things that could be changed. Unlimited turns would be nice, since currently I feel like it ends too fast. Alternatively, the game could have more turns but have more decisions/obstacles like executive orders, filibusters, and media backlashes that harm the opinion towards the bill. Overall a good game that could be improved.
Good Game, But would be better if you could go unlimited turns like the computer version
This is a fun game, but I would like it if there was an option to go unlimited turns like the older computer version was. This way you can get more bills passed instead of rushing to pass the bills.
I would like this game more if it had
I would like if this game would allow the president on this game to make a Executive orders. Do to article 2.
