fractioNation

If you believe looking for a win-win solution is better than a win-lose or lose-lose, this version is more for you. The game setting is that the U.S. is now a multi-party system of government similar to European parliaments in which elected officials of each party have a portion of decision-making power (i.e., proportional representation). You are in a commission, as one of the top-level officials representing your party, involved in allocating funds and making policy decisions. In a discussion with the other top council members, each of you will represent your constituents’ interests and values. Your task is to negotiate with other council members to get the most possible points that represent gains for your party’s goals. Points are gained as others agree to your policy and budget proposals.
