I was thinking of starting a game where you guys run and manage a campaign to become President of the World. First we would have primaries, and then a global election. You guys will pick a politician from anywhere in the world, and I will run a game out of it. I'm not sure of the logistics quite yet, but I thought it would be fun.

Main Parties:

Centrist Democratic Party (Populist)
Democratic Union (Conservative)
Socialist Party (Social Democratic)
Liberal Party (Liberal)
Green Party (Green)
Communist Party (Communism, Trostkyist, etc)

Or candidates can choose their own party, or run as an independent if they wish.

I think this would be fun Smiley

Would it use an electoral college-like system?

LOL, Failure

Alright, if Republicans gain less than 75 seats, I'll prominently display my failure in my signature.

Probably not, but if you think it would enhance the game, then maybe? I was thinking of having a PR Electoral college for the primaries, but it wouldn't be an EC per se, rather it would be for delegates. So, same kind of idea.

Yes.

Nice to see your enthusiasm. I think this will be cool, but are others just waiting for me to start something up before commenting?

That world constituencies thing you did a few years ago could figure into this.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
