Overall experience okay, need 2-3 run to get some grip on things, After that it's just reading political points sim, The only thing i would change is the back system, the "you can only commit" confuse me the first two runs, it would be better that you can back out of option, if not because just seeing your options, it's also avoids misclick, All in all good 30 minutes, would recommend if you're bored and need a distraction

This game is, GENUINELY, a lot of fun. I had my History class today, and I figured "this might be a little bit lame", but it's actually awesome! They manage to turn something boring and lame into something captivating and exciting! I genuinely cheered the first time I passed a bill, that's how great it is. My one small complaint is that, if you get to make every decision yourself, it is kinda possible to rig some things, like the Presidential power. It's still 5 stars, though!

Very disappointed once you go to select your agenda and values you cannot proceed any further even if you press the continue button! I played all the I civics games as a kid in school and know they are incredible, educational, and fun. Please fix this bug so I can continue my love for your games and so others can see how amazing they are!
