In the Exciting Game of the Kennedys, players each assume the role of one member of the Kennedy clan and strive with each other in a contest for national prominence.
Game equipment includes:
72 Turn of Events cards
36 Category cards
36 Official Blank cards
The earlier "Harrison and Winter" version of the game features a more prototypical looking game board (fewer colors, less artwork) and cards with uncut corners. When Transco bought the rights to the game, they upgraded the board art and slightly upgraded the cards.
