C4 Center’s latest release, “Build My-Town” is also a way to learn about good governance and anti-corruption in an entertaining way.
In Build My-Town, every player acts as a Member of Parliament (MP) in charge of a constituency. The goal of each player is to improve your constituency by building developments on it, ranging from small amenities. Besides the primary purpose of building developments, another main mechanic of the game is in its Reform Cards. Players can choose to table Reforms, much like real-life Parliamentary voting, and these Reforms have significant impacts on gameplay.
In playing the role of MPs, players will be able to develop an understanding of the important role MPs have in passing reforms in Parliament, and hopefully, carry that knowledge in speaking to their MPs to push for reforms as well
