Pick A Party-Senate Edition

COST: 99 cents

..UPDATED: 1/27/10, VERSION: 1.1 -- RATING: 4-1/2 Stars..

How well are we familiar with the government officials who run our country? Do we know their names or to which state and party they are affiliated? Would we even know them if we ran into them in the street? If you are like me, probably your answer to all of the above, is, "Not much", "No," and "No". I read the papers often online, and do try to keep up with political events, but this diligence on my part still doesn't familiarize me with the members of government. Pick A Party Senate Edition is an interesting iPhone game which educates you very quickly by letting you choose for which party each member of Congress belongs. This app is very simple to use, yet serves to educate and inform you of your government officials. When you open the screen, simply tap on Instructions. This will then advise you to pick a game mode of either Random Play or Alphabetic Play in which you test your knowledge of which United States Senator is in either the Democratic or Republican party.

When I first played Pick A Party , I selected Random Play because I like to shake things up a bit! The screen then displayed a picture of a Senator along with his name and state affiliation, and two round icon buttons - a red one with an elephant depicting the Republican party, and a blue one with a donkey as the Democratic Party. Tap either button depending on which party you assume is the correct one. A score board at the top of the screen will keep track of your answers by scoring by 10 for each correct answer. Ten points will be subtracted from each wrong answer, so beware and think hard! Pick A Party is a great educational game to test your political knowledge. When at the next party and the conversation turns to politics, you will be able to respond quite knowledgeably to any members of Congress questions asked!

"See how well you know the members of Congress. Guess which political party they are in and earn points."
