Semper Smart Games sent me over their game Election Night to play and review for you guys, and I was not disappointed.
Election Night is a multiple award winning game, where two players or teams battle for critical electoral votes in a gripping race for the presidency. Use your dice pool to choose products or sums that could help you the most. Strategically target key states with freezes and re-rolls to counter your opponent’s progress, and be quick to adapt strategy as conditions change. Lock down quick victories in small states or work for longer-term objectives in larger states on your way to gaining the 270 electoral votes you need to become President!
Election Night uses the patent pending PlaySmart Dice system, which emphasizes numbers associated with harder to learn sums and products. Election Night also comes with a double-sided game board which includes addition and multiplication versions so players of various skill levels can master essential math, while learning U.S. state geography and the mechanics of the Electoral College. Game play in Election Night encourages strategies that target what we know to be harder to learn sums and products, and associates those results with other essential knowledge (U.S. geography and Electoral College mechanics).
Perfect to learn or stay sharp on essential addition and multiplication while helping kids think big things–like running for and becoming President. Ideal for ages 8 and up, with multiple game versions and more complex play that add to high replay value for older age groups and adults. Great for game nights, family play or the classroom. Comes with double-sided, dry erase game board, 6 12-sided, patent pending, 25mm, Playsmart Dice, and two strategy card decks.
My husband was so excited when he got home and saw this game. He is a huge geography and civics buff. This game is an awesome way to help teach your kids about geography. It also helps them understand about elections, specially presidential elections. I love the idea of teaching your kids about this stuff at a young age. If you get them involved and they understand the importance, they will be more likely to vote when they become of age.
