The ReDistricting game is designed to educate players about the issues and complexity of political districting. Currently, the political system in most states allows the state legislators themselves to draw the lines. The system involves a wide range of manipulations that encourage incumbents to draw the district lines in order to protect their seats. In the game, players are given the power to draw congressional district lines in which they must complete tasks and establish population equality of a certain number while maintaining a peaceful political climate. The objective of the game is to teach and enable interactive experiences for players to grasp the congressional redistricting process.
