Battle for control of our Nation’s budget.

Budget Battle is a game that lets you see for yourself how effective the current state of politics is by pitting a mad government slasher against a starry-eyed optimist who’s willing to do whatever to see that “the right thing” is done. One person cuts, the other passes new laws, and absolutely nothing of value gets done. But if you please your party, you can be re-elected for another “24 month” round. Budget Battle uses a couple of the simplest possible circuits and an arduino. The scissors just have a wire on each tine that touch when you bring them closed. The voting button is an arcade button set inside a flashlight case for ease of holding.
