Hi Gonzalo,

A mini review of this great conceptual game (in spanish):

Fun game! It was hard to peel myself away from..

But is it really political? It seems we might as well play whack-a-mole with McCain's head. Or is the metaphor between the random output of 'argument icons' and the erratic behavior of McCain on his campaign? Sorry, but this doesn't seem to be the same level of commentary as some of your earlier games. Perhaps a Financial Bailout game is in the works?

(Or Maybe a McCain Health Care rebate game, where you perform elaborately redundant rearrangements of tax revenue (taxing people's health insurance to fund a much-less equitable health care rebate).. there seems to be some link here between the (relatively) redundant, organizational activities of casual gaming and the black arts of republican finance policies...)

cheers!

but I think thats is just a lil bit grim. I think the game mock obama.
Hm.. but its despite funny.

The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes. Do you think so?
