Josh Lafair hasn’t even voted yet, but he probably knows more about gerrymandering than most. To start, given that his family’s from Austin, Texas, politics has never been a taboo subject around the Lafair dinner table. And in 2017, after the Lafairs watched another uncompetitive congressional election play out in their oddly shaped district (TX-10), Josh and his siblings had an idea: Is there a good gerrymandering board game out there? Could we make our own?
They did. Wonderful.
