LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Politics has never
been so much fun! A Louisville entrepreneur has turned headlines into
happy times with his whimsical creation, Obamacare - The Game.
"Unlike Congress, you don't have to play Obamacare to know what's in
it," mused game creator Jack LeFeber. "Whatever your politics, you'll
love the creative insanity that only a government bureaucracy can
cobble together. It's fun, educational and a little scary, all at the
With wry humor, LeFeber has taken the staggering complexity of the
more than 10,000-page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and
transformed it into a satirical board game that perfectly skewers
legislative absurdity and partisan infighting.
Obamacare - The Game features a colorful layout, creative action
cards, and a style of play that humorously points out the impact the
health care overhaul will have on the American middle class. Players
can choose to be Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party, Green Party or
Occupy Wall Street members, as well as an added player with a distinct
advantage - The IRS. You don't have to know all the details of the
bill to enjoy the game. Each player starts out as a small business
owner (except the Occupy Wall Streeters, who are unemployed). Along
the way, you are taxed, troubled, hospitalized, or may even fall
victim to a Death Panel as you make your way across the board.
"We may have added some funny exaggerations in the game," adds LeFeber
with a smile. "But since the original bill was brought to you by the
same folks who so efficiently manage the US Postal Service, Social
Security Trust Fund, recent Bank Bailouts, and soon-to-be
$17,000,000,000,000.00 in government debt, you know the game is rigged
against us from the start."
LeFeber is currently employing a Kickstarter campaign to fund the
innovative board game's production, with numerous benefits for those
who support the project in various pledge amounts. The campaign runs
through October 10, 2013. The game will be made in Louisville, KY, so
it will be taxed and troubled like any other small business in
America. LeFeber considers it his way of playing along with an
increasingly crazy system.

related merchandise can be ordered exclusively through Kickstarter via
