Game Creators Endorse Hillary Clinton

Mike Selinker and more than 300 other creators of games (both tabletop and electronic) have posted an open letter endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. In addition to urging Americans to vote for the Democratic candidate, the letter describes Hillary and Trump in gaming terms.


The full letter, along with the list of game creators who support it, is at this link:
