back when i was in grade school (1976 - 1979), one of my teachers introduced us to a game. the game was a government game. this is how it was played
(at least how i remember)
each player was given a role. one person was a mayor, a city council person, a congress man, etc. each player was given a card showing the limits of
what each position has. and what each job title was able to do. a role player could work with or against any other player.
one player is chosen by a moderator to complete a task (example: passing an ordinance)
the moderator also gives each role player a task that they need to "further their career"
the player then holds a "meeting" with the role players. then each role player could work with or against each other (sometimes walking away from
the table to make political deals) to make the tasks happen or not.
if i remember correctly a member of the council could be bribed, or be convinced by a political favor.
it was pretty cool. i don't remember the name of the game. the name gomston or comstone keeps popping up in my head but the searches so far have zero
has anyone else heard or played this game before? would be cool play it again.
