    Description

    A family card game simulation of political life and elections in the USA since 1944. Play to become President Of The United States (POTUS).

    Each player controls politicians who will run through the election process (primaries and presidential) in the hope to get elected President.

    A President will then have to solve crisis, face Congress and maintain his approval by playing Executive cards during the course of his mandate.

    Getting elected, playing or solving crisis (cards) will gain you Political Points, the winner being the first to reach 51 or the one who ends the agreed game duration with the highest score.

    Players play with Politician cards, both historical and random, and have States cards where the can be elected.

    They have access to Supports cards (to gain votes in Elections), Fundraising cards (to finance campaigns), Actions and Campaign cards to play more or less when they want (the "dirty tricks" department), and finallty Crisis cards to impeded the President's actions, opposed by Executive cards to solve the former.

    Each turn see a card draft phase, a Congress phase where recruitments and other actions are taken, and an Election phase which allows to get candidates through to the supreme job.

    Game has been divided into 3 equivalent periods of 6-7 turns to allow for shorter play. You can play the full campaign from 1944 onwards, till 2020...!
