You’ve heard of fantasy football leagues. You’ve heard of fantasy baseball leagues. You may even have heard of the Fantasy Supreme Court league. Now add to the fantasy roster Fantasy Congress: Where People Play Politics.

Create a team of 16 members of Congress. To keep it interesting, you are required to have a mix of senators and representatives with varying years of experience. As the members of your team move bills through the successive steps of the legislative process and onto the president’s desk, you score points.

Here is the site’s preamble:

We The Creators of this site, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish Fantasy Congress for the United States of America.

Play the game and, guess what, you might also learn something about how sausage is made.
