Interestingly enough, the app stories giving this election a nice touch for millennial. Recently, a game has come out called Pocket Politics and the concept is genius. Plenty of games such as Clash of Clans have developed the idea of recreating a community or a base. You do this by raising money and with that money, you’re able to build you’re way up to the top. Pocket politics actually has a very similar idea.

In this game, you start at the very bottom of politics (like a member of the school board or something) and buy things like Court Marshalls, Ticketers, Media Sources, Socialist Networks, and Syndicates. Through these, your campaign is funded and you work your way up to the top of representatives by winning elections. The cool thing about it is that you get to pick your political candidate whether it’s a conservative male, a conservative female, a liberal male, or a liberal female.

It’s a fun way to get into politics even though it’s through a bit of fictionalization. I’ve noticed that a lot of people have been playing it lately. I’ve tried it out myself and I actually found that I really enjoy it. I’ve attached an article that would give more specifics about the game.
