The American Democracy Game


The American Democracy Game

Congratulations! You've been elected!

Through the American Democracy Game, you can put yourself in the shoes of a lawmaker and find out what it is like to deal with public policy issues. Discover the different interests on each side of a public policy issue and learn how negotiation and compromise can lead to a good result.

This online game - recently honored as 2021 Game of the Year by the Creative Child Magazine Awards Program - was developed by NCSL for middle school students and includes teacher guides and information. Read all about it in NCSL's State Legislature magazine.

To get started, click on the "Play" link below, click "Sign Up" on the red seal under the login box, and then create your username and password. 

Thanks to the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures for their generous support for this project.
