online civic games

On a frenzied work day, these are sites I should not be visiting--but they are great ideas.

Impact-Inc. is a game (modeled on Mafia Wars) that lets you simulate running a nonprofit organization. This is where to click and play if you have a Facebook account.

Redistricting the Nation opposes gerrymandered electoral districts--one of our most serious political problems--and their site offers an opportunity to draw your own (imaginary) districts.

Our Courts (started by Justice Sandra Day O'Connor) provides Do I Have A Right? (a game in which you are a constitutional lawyer), and Supreme Decision (in which you are clerk to a Supreme Court justice).
