    Power is a political simulation game of the U.S. political system, complete with an executive branch (including a cabinet) and a legislative branch (currently only a senate). There are 50 states, each with its own governor and two senators. You can create or join a political party and then enter primaries and elections for either governor or senator. You accrue a certain amount of power each turn and can use it to raise money, raise state influence, or other actions (each with their own cost in terms of power, money, or reputation). As a governor, you can set tax rates and spending on any number of issues, including abortion and gun control. The game has recently been reset, so jump in while opportunities abound. I am Theodore Roosevelt, the Class II Senator from Massachusetts (http://oppressive.games/power/pol.php?pol=4207), and I intend to form the Progressive Party once I have enough power and money. Almost all of the game's users use Discord extensively (both for OOC conversation and IG organization). You can find the Progressive Party Discord here: discord.gg/4rJeCs5. I hope you join Power and the Progressive Party as well! We're always welcoming new members!

    Hello. This seems like a community interested in politics, so I'd like to introduce a game that might be of interest to you all: oppressive.games/power

    This is a pretty realistic political/election simulation game where you can run as a governor or a senator for any of the 50 states, each of which have unique demographic statistics. There are also political parties (you can create your own if you wish) and presidential elections every 400 hours or so. You get a certain amount of power every hour and you use it to raise money and home state influence. As a governor, you have power over state policy, such as infrastructure projects and taxes. As a senator, you can propose and filibuster bills.

    If you're interested, then create an account. After that, click on the header "Parties" and click "Party List". Then find the Democratic Party and join it. Discord is a pretty significant auxiliary to the game, so once you've joined the party, send me a message in-game and I'll send you the link to the Democratic Party chat! My name is Mitchell Clifford and I'm the Governor of Massachusetts. My profile can be found here: http://oppressive.ga...pol.php?pol=958

    I hope you enjoy it as much as we all have!
