In this rather stressed time I was wondering if politicians were boardgames what would they be ? Here is my take on this idea. Please note that this is my take and please take this game in the vein that it was given .

Donald Trump - A kickstarter game with a great idea and nice video to sell the game but no rules and only vague promises when the actual game will come out. The general description of the game sounds a little simple but you are really tempted by the theme. The guy publishing the game has never published a game before even though he says it will be greater than any other game published before.

Hillary Clinton - A reissue of an old classic game. You most probably have this game in your collection but the company publishing this says this will be the definitive collectors edition with great pieces and maybe some revamped rules. You know that there is nothing really new in this game but its solid and the earlier edition of the game was pretty good.

Barack Obama - A great game with a bit of a contraversial theme but a good solid game. You have played it on and off quite a bit over the years but it might be heading for the trade/sell pile or might be sitting on the shelf as newer more interesting games with a similiar theme seem to be coming down the pipeline. You will most probably bring it out a few more times but not as much as you used too.

Justin Trudeau - A really great party game which everyone enjoys. You are playing it a lot and still enjoying it but wonder if it has long term replayability. Hopefully some promised expansions will help extend the game life of this game, allow for you to have some more strategic play and keep you playing the game. Sure beats the Stephen Harper game brought out a few years ago by the same company.

Nah, I'm pretty sure this is a straight reprint. No special edition, no upgraded components. It might have actually been downgraded from shaped wooden commodities to plain wooden cubes. But overall, if you enjoyed the original, you won't be disappointed by this edition

Barack Obama - Pandemic Legacy, a game adjudged uniquely satisfying to tear in pieces.

While your first three were fairly accurate (nice thing about being a centrist is being unbiased), Justin Trudeau? You are kidding, right?

With upgraded bankruptcy rules so you can keep playing on the other player's dime(s).

Donald Trump is the game 1830. Start a promising new company, build track to nowhere, siphon the company money into your own pocket, and then dump the company on someone else.

Is it the road on the top right?

I think that's too obvious. It's the 11.
