What's happening with iCivics now that Adobe Flash is going away?

When iCivics launched its first game in 2009, Adobe Flash was the best development platform to use. But like all games, there is a final level! Adobe Flash ceased support on many web browsers on December 31, 2020. Since the announcement, we have been working hard to ensure our games are accessible on our website without using Flash.


As we have passed the deadline, some of our games have been affected:

The following iCivics games have been upgraded: Argument Wars, Branches of Power, Cast Your Vote, Counties Work, Court Quest, Do I Have a Right?, Executive Command, Immigration Nation, LawCraft, Race to Ratify, People's Pie, and Win the White House

These games have been removed from our website on December 31 and will return when upgrades are possible: Activate, Crisis of Nations, People’s Pie, Supreme Decision

We said a final goodbye to these four games on December 31: Power Play, Responsibility Launcher, Represent Me, We the Jury


Be sure to check the list of games that will no longer be available after December 31, 2020 and explore other resources we have that cover similar content to adjust your curriculum.


Help us say goodbye to our games by sharing your stories with us. Did the tug-of-war of federalism win you over in Power Play? Did you love launching responsibilities in Responsibility Launcher?
