If your stance is that winner-takes-all is more realistic than trying to compromise, this version is for you. The game setting is that as citizens, you are aiming to convince other citizens to support your values and interests and also avoid an obligation to fund causes that you may argue are against your political stance. Landing in others’ domains is simply part of life, as we sometimes through family or work obligations end up in locations or situations that we wouldn’t otherwise choose. For example, you might be invited to attend a football game or burning man festival. Taxes are demanded. Donation requests are made by non-profits. Give-and-take is part of relationships, but it’s important to explain to the others why you aren't willing to support some requests or demands. Hey friendly northern neighbors, there's a version with Canada's color schemes too!
The rules file gives you an idea of how the game is played. As annoying as it is to have another Monopoly knockoff, at least you know the basic mechanics so you can jump right in and focus on the dialog. Check out the Nolan chart page to understand your opponents' positions. Feel free to leave feedback on Facebook @politibanter about how the gameplay goes for you!
