Enjoyable

I enjoy this. It is fun to learn things I wasn't aware of before and things I had forgotten. If you want to learn about politics, betting chips in the process, then this game is for you.

Not for kids and others susseptible to suggestion

Game was quite easy actually, The comments are definitely left /liberal biased, which as a conservative I found annoying. For example, comments blame Congress inability to raise taxes as the reason for budget deficit... does not mention that Dems won't pass a budget,...
Game was quite easy actually, The comments are definitely left /liberal biased, which as a conservative I found annoying. For example, comments blame Congress inability to raise taxes as the reason for budget deficit... does not mention that Dems won't pass a budget, or address out of control spending. Game appears to try to brainwash kids who may be playing this into left-wing liberal thinking. For this reason, and lack of balance I gave it a one star. If you're an adult sitting in an airport trying to blow some time... the game is "ok" if... again...you're not bothered by the political bias.

    Stupid game of percentage questions!

    Hate, hate, hate! Question after question about stupid percentages. Who cares! Started out pretty easy and fun if you know politics.

    Pilitical bias

    This game seems more focused on economics than politics. There is clearly a right wing leaning bias to the questiins and answers

    Nice way to pass time.

    Its a bit one sided, it has a liberal biases as far as the questions go. But overall its informative, and a nice way to pass time while waiting in line.
