Buy the Vote! (“BTV!”) is a 15-minute bidding game where players pretend to be Presidential candidates in order to win states by cleverly spending their campaign dollars. The game takes just 3 minutes to learn. It is a game of evolving strategy, game theory, human psychology, and politics (all in one). Everyone loves BTV from experienced poker players to even kids and everyone in between! The game is mostly competitive with an ounce of cooperation as you outwit other candidates to become your party’s Presidential Nominee, but don’t squash your competition too hard because you will need a strong running mate to win the White House by collectively scoring over 270 electoral votes. Unless you think you can do it single-handedly…
