Senate 2014 Map

Senate 2014 Map

How things look at the beginning of the Senate 2014 campaign. Since Orman will likely caucus with the Dems, and they have the tie-breaking vote from the Vice-President, the Reps have to take two more seats than they have in the above map. Most likely, this would be two from the undecided states, Kansas (Orman), or one or more of the three light blue states (less likely).

Introducing Congress Infinity!

Congress Infinity

 Congress Forever 2014 is now Congress Infinity.

What’s important about the change:

All Congress Forever 2014 pre-order owners will now be Congress Infinity owners.

Why the change:

To better reflect the future and nature of the game, it’s getting a new name.

What to expect:

An early Test Release will be released to Steering Council members soon.

Then, a Test Release will be released to all pre-order owners.

Then, the game will be released officially. Initially, it will contain 2014 Senate and House.

Updates will then continue to be added to the game.

If you want to pre-order, click here.

Thanks everyone for your support!
