This deck isn’t “presidential bloopers,” although it does examine some scandals and missteps, nor is it a dry and dutiful civics lesson, although it looks at matters such as presidential succession and constitutional law. Instead, it addresses fascinating aspects of the presidency and vice presidency in Q&A format, touching on the strange workings of the Electoral College, the Byzantine maneuvers used in campaigns and conventions, and the loneliness of the vice president (traditionally seen as a spare part to be kept in case of presidential incapacitation). You don’t have to be a Washington watcher to find these cards absorbing, amusing, and illuminating.

Each card contains a memorable line with related information that tells you who said what to whom, and in what film the phrase was featured. The cards can be read just for pleasure, or they can form the basis for a game that tests players’ knowledge of historic films.
