Obamanopoly is the Property Trading Game for the New Economy! As the only game parodying the dysfunctional politics of Washington and the ridiculousness of our current "leaders," Obamanopoly is a unique and hilarious twist on the property trading games of the past.
Its all about your influence in Obamanopoly, and some of the various "properties" include the Bailout, Stimulus Package, Healthcare Reform, Solar Power, Energy Czar, Cap & Trade, The White House, etc.
Jack up your rents by putting some unions in place at your properties. Start modest by only bringing in some local unions and then step-up to the national unions. In no time at all, the unions will have increased the costs at your property to unthinkable levels.
Don"t worry about over-leveraging yourself though. If you get "too-big-to-fail" and then you fail, you will be bailed-out by the government.
You can play as one of six characters, each with their own "more-equal" qualities. For example; Speaker Nancy can jet-set around the board on the taxpayer"s dime swapping places with oponents anytime she rolls doubles. Other characters include: Timmy the Tax Man, Da Mayor, Rent-Control Wrangler, The Reverend Loudmouth, and Weather Underground William.
The Hope & Change cards can really throw your game-plan for a loop by giving a huge boost to some players (like when you are appointed CEO of Government Motors and get $5,000 for each turn until you are replaced) and screwing others by being thrown in Gitmo.
Obamanopoly"s beautifully designed board and handsome box make it a great display even after the game is over. Let your neighbors know how you feel (they probably feel the same).
The game comes with custom board and character pieces, property cards, money, Hope & Change cards, local and national union pieces, rules, dice and display box.
