Watergate, 1973–1974 explores America's most dramatic constitutional crisis of the twentieth century: the investigation of the Watergate burglary. The scandal brought the nation's political system to the brink of disaster: the US president had defied established norms of democracy, and his enemies and allies alike struggled to hold together the country's fragile constitutional order.

In the game, students portray members of Congress,journalists, and key figures from the Nixon administration, all seeking to advance their faction's goals while also seeking a way to resolve the Watergate crisis.
