MP For A Week is a puzzle game where you play an MP for a week. That might sound sedate and a little boring, but things soon kick off as you try and survive a week in politics. Like Reigns, you need to balance keeping your party, your voters and the media happy.

Once you have chosen a difficulty level and whether you are in power or opposition you select what your core values are, Loval, Financial or Global. You then spend your time answering messages, speaking to the press, taking meetings, debating laws and appearing at inquiries.

The result is a surprisingly engaging peek into the life as an MP. It highlights the range and value of MPs’ work and grants an understanding of the role of a Member of Parliament. Along the way you learn about Citizenship, Democracy, government and the rights and responsibilities of citizens.

It can be played on desktops, tablets or mobile devices.
