Introducing Obamacare – The Game: Everybody has to play, Nobody ever wins

Here’s a new board game that’s sure to be fun for the whole family.

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 same time.”

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.”

It’s the perfect Kwanzaa gift for the Obamabots on your list.

So Lawrence of Arabia walks into a falafel shop…

A young Arab boy asks his father, “What is that weird hat you are wearing?”

The father said, “Why, it’s a ‘chechia’ because in the desert it protects our heads from the sun.”

“And what is this type of clothing that you are wearing?” asked the young man.

“It’s a ‘djbellah’ because in the desert it is very hot and it protects the body.” said the father.

The son asked, “And what about those ugly shoes on your feet?

His father replied, “These are ‘babouches”, which keep us from burning our feet in the desert.”

“So tell me then ,” added the boy.

“Yes, my son?”

“Why are you living in Dearborn Michigan, and still wearing all this shit?”
