Political Games - or should that be gaming

This article about a computer games publisher is interesting. He is offering a free copy of his game to MPs and Members of Congress as well as to candidates for 'real' elected office. He wants them to practice governing before they do so for real.

Yes, it's publicity for his game and yes, the outcomes depend on the prejudices inherent in the game (as one commentator wrote - if a communist wrote the game then anyone playing as a capitalist would lose). But it might be fun for the political anoraks among us. (Hint, if you are reading this then you probably qualify)

Will any Lib Dem MPs be up for giving it a go?
