The Video Game “Campaign Trail” was my first taste of Politics

At about the same time I was learning about the stock market with Wall Street by CE Software, another game was teaching me a little about politics. It was “Campaign Trail” by Game Designer’s Workshop and it would become an obsession for a few friends of mine. We probably spent the good part of a year playing and replaying this game, and it might have inspired some learning.

I have since played one or two other political campaign games, like the one Stardock made a few years ago, but none captured my imagination like “Campaign Trail”. Did anyone else play this gem?
