COVINGTON, Ky., March 16, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A web developer and veteran of the U.S. Navy is creating a series of online games honoring the 225th anniversary of ratification of the Bill of Rights. Michael Hebert, Owner/Operator of MH Virtual, LLC, was born in the ninth state to ratify the document (Rhode Island) and calls the game collection Civics Match.
He expects the project will encourage Americans to think about the importance of the first ten Constitutional amendments.
“The games are mobile-friendly and have a memory/quiz combination format that’s pretty unique,” Hebert said. “Even though I swore an oath to defend the Constitution upon entering service with the Navy and completed the Navy’s Legal Officer Course, my knowledge of the Constitution could be better and I suspect that’s the case for many Americans.”
He adds, “With a Supreme Court appointment imminent in a Presidential election year, the Civics Match concept seems timely.”
The first game, released on the anniversary of James Madison’s birthday (March 16th), is currently available at game1.civicsmatch.com. For the matching portion it makes use of images of quarters from the U.S. Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program. The quarters represent the first ten states to ratify the Bill of Rights, which became law when Virginia was the eleventh to ratify it on December 15th, 1791.
Project information and links to official sources of information about the Bill of Rights can be found at http://civicsmatch.com/.
