CIVIO is a strategy card game that explores the relationship of issues, freedoms, laws, and Supreme Court cases that have both strengthened and reduced civil rights and civil liberties.
Using a handful of cards representing laws, Supreme Court decisions, constitutional amendments, key issues, and freedoms, you are in a race against other players to combine these cards into precedents. The more points you earn, the higher your ranking. In time, you could become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court!
CIVIO comes with a deck of 78 cards, each beautifully and uniquely illustrated, four blank case cards for customizing the game, and instruction booklets for playing two versions of the game. The game is manufactured and assembled by a worker-owned (and union-labor) cooperative using recycled paper and soy-based ink.
