The election of 2016 was a complete circus put on display for the entire world. Donald Trump has taken the stage as President and is throwing minorities out of the big tent.
The ideas that this President stands for are an affront to basic morality and it’s important that we don’t keep our mouths shut. In every way, we should stand together and never
let this kind of power push us away from the tenets of human civility. I created a board game that allowed people to talk about this subject without losing their minds.

In the game, Duck Trump, one team plays as Donald Trump, Ben Carson or Ted Cruz while the other team takes on the role of immigrants. The mission for the immigrants is to earn
as much money as possible by doing different jobs on the board. If they get in trouble, they lose all their money and are sent to prison.
The game isn’t over until one of the immigrants thinks he or she has the most money and
can flee the country or if the politicians win
because all the immigrants are in prison.
