That’s My Congress Card Game

That’s My Congress Card Game

As Americans, we're supposed to have a love for freedom and democracy, but how many of us don't even know the name of our own U.S. Representative? Congress is a mystery for too many American citizens, and this card game aims to break that mystery. Above all else, That's My Congress is a card game, and it's a fun and competitive game, with a kind of flexibility that allows for players to behave in unexpected ways, learning new ways to obtain victory. The context is unique, however. No other card game is set in the U.S. House of Representatives. That's My Congress enables players to choose teams of members of Congress to do political battle against each other, sometimes above the board, sometimes in rather underhanded ways. As people play, they become more familiar with the people who work on Capitol Hill, and become more interested in the fascinating power games that take place there. This congressional card game is a great gift not just for Washington D.C. insiders, but for grassroots activists, political science departments, political party clubs, and people who are interested in big ideas, but haven't yet made the leap to become aware and involved in the congressional legislative battles that shape how those big ideas are transformed into action.
