    A legacy trick taking inspired game about representation in an unbalanced owl-igarchy. All proceeds for this will go to GLAAD.

    As campaign manager, you’ve gathered a following of vowlenteers to raise awareness for your cause. They will need to be visible to gain favor, but it isn’t always safe to do so. Diamond bellied owls have dominated the media and dictated the laws for this owligarchy, so it may be safer to hide your heart spotted belly than risk rejection and exile from others. Can you orchestrate the solidarity necessary to help them be accepted and further your agenda? The most accepted cause will have an opportunity to shape the future’s representation in Parliament.
    Parliament will start with 4 diamonds, and each player will start with 6 number cards, playing a card each round until they've played all of them, with a goal of having the most accepted cards.

    Each round, a card is played under your owl card, either face up or face down. If face down, you place the card in the Closet, and don't get an accepted or rejected card for the round.

    The suits of all face up cards are added together, and 2 is added for each suit in Parliament (So diamonds get +8 at first). Cards sharing the suit(s) with the highest value go to each player's accepted pile, and the rest go to their rejected pile.

    The winner will randomly draw a card from their accepted stack to see which suit becomes represented in parliament, and the most rejected player gets to take a rejected card from another player. All players draw cards randomly from the Closet to refill their decks back up to 6 to determine their hand for the next game.
