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

Terrible game. Once you click something you have to go with it. Also, you can't do anything in 12 turns. Its also annoying to go through to same exact process each time. The people's AI are broken as well. They keep challenging laws that don't violate rights and the percentage thing doesn't make any sence at all. This game should be lit on fire.

This game is too complex, holding a conference and choosing the right answer is hard I get 1 wrong and 2 correct but I want a perfect one, and sometimes adding clauses that had a big support from both houses but against my president's values, you should simplify this game to make it easier
