With the 2023 general election on the horizon, Ōtautahi illustrator and designer Maya Templer has put together a set of Magic the Gathering-esque trading cards comparing and contrasting the candidates.
The game has 45 cards of MP’s running in the upcoming election, alongside policy cards and a few tributes to Aotearoa’s political history.
