I have been playing this with my family, including kids, who are 7 and 8yrs old. It's been topical because we've just had the school elections, which incidentally eaned a bonus by raising the issues of lying to get into power and keeping promises once you're in, which might sound heavy but weren't with a lot of gonzo play and tall tales and trash talk.

The mechanics were really simple and easy to grasp, you're guided by the cut outs and there are only 2 rounds, so no problems with attention

I love the game, it's fast and fun and easy to pick up and, given it's free, my 1st action as prime minister will be to make this available in every household, stand behind me and we will march into that bright future!

Short assessment: Outstanding

Basis of review: played twice, once with three, once with four players, none of whom had roleplaying game experience or special interest in politics

Results: All players immediately grasped and happily followed the simple and clear rules and procedures. Each play of the game produced hilarious and impressively realistic dark secrets, responses to allegations, emptily platitudinous slogans and promises, cheap attacks on opponents, and polling and election results based on personal and emotional factors irrelevant to policy. The anti-immigration candidate who was exposed as an immigrant flamed out, but the animal rights vegan survived accusations of eating real chicken instead of tofu burgers and nobody learned until after she'd been elected that she secretly owned a slaughterhouse.

Specific assessment: The one page of rules and procedures may initially look simple and obvious, but this is deceptive. Features such as the Dark Secret and the assumption that all allegations by the press were true, along with the incentives created by other candidates' players acting as the reporters at press conferences and moderators at debates, yielded impressive, dare I say, "yuge" results.

Conclusion: Unlike many candidates who promise lots of great stuff for free, this game delivers. I want to praise it "bigly" for making roleplaying great again!

I'm looking forward to trying this. Looks like a super quick way to get into the thick of politics. I'm watching House of Cards right now and this could be fast RPG equivalent, but I'd like to see more to do with the dark secret. This game is likely to be as good as the players imaginations :)
