Sandra Day O'Connor helped make a game and it's really fun

Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is now a video game maker.

PHOENIX - Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is now a video game maker.

O'Connor is behind a civics game designed to teach students about campaigning for president, the New York Times reports.

In "Win the White House," you play a presidential candidate. You start in the primary and if you win the nomination, you face a challenger in a 10-week race.

The game is turn-based. There are levels for elementary, middle and high school students.

As far as political games, it's pretty fun. The content is fairly presented, even as the political issues are labeled "Democrat" and "Republican."

It teaches the importance of building campaign momentum in numerous states, fundraising, the challenge of attack ads, platforms and the electoral college.

Try the game here. Let us know if you win your campaign!
