Thanks to help from the forums on this website, I've been able to take my rough design of a card game to Kickstarter.
270: The Race to the White House is a card game where players attempt to win electoral votes to get elected as the President of the United States. Gameplay works under a highest card wins style of card game, perfect for the whole family. You might even be able to sucker kids into learning things.
You can check out the game here.
