An Immersive Roleplaying Experience

Step into the shoes of President George Washington, his cabinet, foreign diplomats, members of Congress, Native American leaders, and the press.

Players will be faced with domestic and international crises during George Washington’s second term as president and will work together to decide on a course of action. New information is received in real-time, and the group must quickly adapt in response to a changing environment.

Registration Details

  • You can sign up in a group or as individuals.
  • The Situation Room is suitable for high school students and adults.
  • You will receive a survey via email after registration; this survey will be used to assign the roles of historic figures.
  • Instructions for the game will be given when you arrive.

2022 Civic Season

There is no “we the people” without all the people. Between Juneteenth and the Fourth of July, it’s time to turn out and turn up the volume on our story—in all of its complexity.

We’re imagining a new kind of summer tradition to strengthen our democracy, and we invite you to help us shape it.
