What a wonderful and unexpected way of using a game to learn about a real world issue. I must admit, I find politics to be extremely complicated and baffling when it’s on home soil, let alone in the US, where it seems to be a national sport. But Democracy 3 makes it all seem that little bit more accessible, even if I don’t quite understand what I’m doing all of the time. Check out the New Statesman article above if you want to know how it worked out, and if you want to find out more about the Democracy 3 game, click the GameHub link below!
