'The Contender' is a new political card game that combines American politics with fast-action game play. With the American presidential campaign heating up, many people are becoming increasingly engaged in current political debates. This game provides a fun way to dip your toes in the world of politics.

The Contender is structured so that one player will serve as the moderator, while the other players act as presidential candidates. The moderator will deal argument cards to candidates and then select topic cards that range from issues such as public education to gun control. The candidates must respond to the topics based on the argument cards they have been given. What is unique about these cards is that they contain actual summaries of statements by political figureheads such as Barack Obama, Ross Perot, Al Gore and other former presidential candidates.

The political card game is both educational and highly entertaining, making it a fun way to engage with American politics.
