It’s not real enough

It’s a good for real but we can’t pick who we want to help us in the house and I want to run against others also yea the game might be still on its come up but If you was to add those things it will fit real good with this game

Longer Games

I’d like to see longer “turns” as well as who to pick for your cabinet. An amazing addition would be merging this with “Win the White House” and having to make decisions based on how you ran as President.

i like it but

it would be wonderful if they used the real country names, if these are actually happening it would be nice to know where or else i dont know whee it is all happening! its quite pointless in that sense the way the devs made it
