About

The Politician, is a board game that follows competing aspiring politicians as they adventure on a politcal journey from the local City Hall all the way to the White House.

Each player begins by selecting their game piece.  Game pieces consist of an elephant, donkey, eagle, flag, tea bag, and other political symbols.

Players begin in the "City Hall" sector and collect campaign dollars, signatures, and create laws through the use of playing cards in order to advance through to the dice rolling election process.  After the election of the the City Hall sector, you either win and become Mayor and advance to the next sector, which is Congress, or you lose and must return to City Hall and prepare for the next election.

Once a player advances through each sector (City Hall, Congress, State Capital, White House) they may then enter the election for the Presidency. The winner of the game is the first person to be elected President.

Playing cards will consist of positive, negative and neutral outcomes.  Examples of card outcomes: 1) Player gives passionate speech at car parts factory and receives $10,000 campaign donation from unions.  2) Player is caught acting inappropriately in an internet video and loses 1 point off next election dice roll)

The game is intended for 2-6 Players.
