51  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: MS: Rasmussen: Rs favored either way on: March 31, 2014, 09:40:55 pm
The insanity is ridiculously strong here. Mississippi is Likely R, bordering on Safe. For Childers to win would require McDaniel to be nominated, firstly (not a particularly likely event), and then to blunder (also not a certainty). Michigan is Tossup/slight Tilt R. Land has won every statewide election she has competed in and has a consistent, albeit narrow lead in the polls; Peters has only competed in one and lost that one, but Michigan usually leans Democratic on the federal level, so there is probably an opening for Peters. It is Peters whose campaign has to outcompete Land's if he wants to win; it is Peters who needs the status quo to shift. It can be argued that, for different reasons, it is likely that he achieves this; but there is no logical way you can come to the conclusion that he is favored by any significant amount without a blindfold covering your eyes. I would reply to individual posts but I see no need to waste my time.

But, it's the left which is supposed to be anti-semitic, according to many!

Obviously Robertson's comment excuses any anti-Semitic statements made by any leftist ever!

Once more unto the breach...

All on NY. Let's go, do-or-die, NY-PA-OH-KY-TN-AR-TX-NM-AZ-NV-ID-OR. Upon reaching Oregon or running out of battalions, end turn. Thanks, Joe Smiley

Let's put it like this, Childers has about as much chance of winning as the overrated Terri Lynn Land

Yes, a candidate with a 2-point lead ( http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2014/senate/mi/michigan_senate_land_vs_peters-3820.html ) clearly has the same chance of winning as a candidate with a 17-point deficit against his likeliest opponent and an average 9-point deficit against a less-likely opponent ( http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2014/senate/mississippi_senate_race.html ). Your hackishness is starting to get tiresome.

Republicans are far more confident about winning blue state seats that Democrats are about winning red states.

Michigan and Mississippi are not comparable intensities of strength; Massachusetts and Mississippi are, but I don't see any Republicans thinking they'll beat Ed Markey.

No, but that doesn't mean Dereich and Goldwater aren't absolutely right.

End turn. Gah.

Trading in the following card set:



That should give me 2 battalions on KS, along with 10 more (for a total of 13) wherever I want. Of those 13, put 2 more on KS (for a total of 5 in that state), and 11 on MA (for a total of 12 there). Attack, do-or-die, KS-MO-TN and MA-RI-CT-NY. If I take everything, end turn; if not, await further orders. Thanks, Joe Smiley

Everything on NY. Let's give it all we got, NY-PA-WV-KY-TN-MO-KS-OK-NM-AZ-CA. Do or die. Then await further orders.

You are not winning that easy, Hagrid!

I think maybe both of us are underestimating our own chances, cuz I'm not at all optimistic haha.

Just a bit of playful banter there Smiley

Put all 9 on OR. Then attack, do-or-die, OR-CA-AZ-NM-TX-LA-MS. If that sequence is successful, end turn. Otherwise, await further orders. Thanks Joe Smiley
63  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination X: Round 9 (Hagrid) on: March 27, 2014, 07:08:49 am
Put all 8 on Michigan, and then storm down the old warpath do-or-die, MI-OH-KY-TN-AR.  If that's all successful, end turn. If not, await further orders. Thanks, Joe Smiley

EDIT: if that run is successful, tactical move NV-OR. Thx

I'll be trading in my North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington cards, generating 2 battalions on Washington and 10 more to go anywhere, for 18 total. Of those 18, put 6 on NY, 6 on OH, 4 on ID, and 2 on SD. Attack, do-or-die, WA-OR-NV and OH-KY-TN-AR. If that's all successful, tactical move MA-NY and end turn. If not, stop and await further orders. Thanks Joe Smiley
65  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination X: Round 8 (Vosem) on: March 24, 2014, 03:14:18 pm
Not to poop my own party, but shouldn't I only have 1 battalion on Montana?

Apparently your honesty resulted in some good karma in your subsequent dice rolls!

Excellent Cheesy

Of those 10, let's go 6 on NY, 4 on ID. Attack ID-WA, do-or-die. If I take it, tactical move NH-MA and end turn. If I fail, attack TN-GA do-or-die, then tactical move NH-MA and end turn. If that fails too, stop and await further orders, I guess. Thanks, Joe Smiley

I'd like to trade in my infantry cards of SC, LA, and ME, which give 4 extra battalions, or 12 total. Please distribute 7 on MT, 3 on CT, and 2 on ID. Attack, do-or-die, ID-WA; MT-WY-CO-OK-AR-TN; and CT-NY. Then tactical move ME-NH and end turn. Thank you, Joe Smiley

After some reflection, I've come to the conclusion that not taking the move I am about to would serve only to delay the game and lead to Hagrid eventually overwhelming me with superior force of numbers with Franzl's/Marokai's cards anyway. Sorry, tmth. Obviously if this fails the game is over, and much faster than it would've been otherwise, but there's no reward for holding out longer.

I'd like to trade in the following card set:

       

This should give me an extra 10 battalions, plus 2 in Montana. Of my total 19 reinforcements, please put 5 on Idaho, 3 on New York, and 11 on Nevada, for a total of 6 in Idaho, 17 on New York, and 21 on Nevada. At that point, do-or-die the following attack sequences:

ID-WA
NY-NJ-DE-MD-VA-NC
NV-CA-AZ-UT-CO-NM-TX

If that was all successful, stop and end turn. If any part of that was unsuccessful, I guess attack MT-WY in a futile gesture, curse, and then end turn. Thank you, Joe Smiley

Trading in a couple of cards:

   

That should give me an extra 10 (for a total of 17 wherever I want), along with 2 each on Vermont and Minnesota.

Put all 17 on Minnesota, making it a total of 20 battalions in that state. Attack, do-or-die, MN-ND-MT-ID-OR-CA-NV. (Sorry, BK. If I succeed. Otherwise, damn you Tongue) At the end of that run, tactical move VT-NY, which should leave me with a total of 14 battalions in that state. (If I've misinterpreted anything regarding how cards work, don't attack anything, explain my mistake, and let me reconsider. But I took the time to reread the rules after tmth's mishap, so I think I'm set.)

Also, as an aside, I'll be going on a family vacation March 21-30. Internet access will exist during this time, but it may be very sporadic. I hope I won't hold up the game much, but if I do by a few days I apologize for it in advance Sad

And thanks for having the game in the first place, Joe, you're the best.

Couldn't former S.C. Rep. Henry Brown Jr. be a less controversial pick to appeal to conservative Southerners than Paul Broun? I think Brown/Brown vs. Brown/Brown might work out a little better for Brown.

74  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of Link on: March 16, 2014, 12:00:22 am
Bizarre, extremely misogynistic, and extremely aggressive. Strongly implied that he was also such in real life. Frequently derailed threads. Unfunny and liked to attack others for their humor. (Also repeatedly brought up whatever few personal characteristics about a poster he knew, such as age/gender/occupation, to criticize them, regardless of whatever was being discussed). Outright lied on at least one occasion (when he claimed to be in the medical field, then made statements that betrayed that he was not on account of them making actually zero sense). Had only enemies on the Forum. I'm not in favor of banning generally, but I have to admit that the Forum will be a far, far better place without Link. HP.

EDIT: And he is currently losing 88%-12% in a fairly high-turnout poll. Goes to show.
