Board Games and the Bible Review – Elections of US America Election: The Card Game

Thanks to the designers at Auroch Digital, I was able to play and review satirical card game, Elections of US America Election: The Card Game.

Contrary to initial impressions, the game isn’t a delivery device for cheap, pointed jokes about particular groups. It’s a storytelling device. Elections contains deliberately absurd scenarios, easy-to-learn mechanics, and unexpectedly strategic design – all to facilitate an experience that goes beyond that of a simple party game. Combining these elements with the trappings of a presidential race manages to turn what could have been a boring test of statistics into a surprising mirror of our admittedly weird electoral process.

I’m relatively new to the specialty board and card game space. However, Elections of US America Election: The Card Game is already among my family’s favorite physical games, and you can see why in the video review above.
