I cant edit Maine, but I won it too...I played Ron Paul vs Leonora Fulani in 88 without major parties, and won a landslide.

Best Game Yet Wink 2000

Senator Evan Bayh/Senator Russ Feingold-346 EV, 49,769,282 PV (45.8%).
Governor George W Bush/Former Senator John Danforth-192 EV, 47,360,281 PV (43.6%).
Activist Ralph Nader/Former Congressman Dan Hamburg-6,245,136 PV (5.8%)
Activist Pat Buchanan/Activist Ezola Foster-5,203,443 (4.8%)

I edited 2000 alot since I got this scenario. I added Paul Wellstone, and Evan Bayh to the Democratic primaries, and lots of extra VP options for each party. I created Bayh today, expecting to come in dead last in each primary. I started off with 8% in Iowa. I won Iowa, New Hampshire, and eventually, the nomination at a divided convention. Gore lost votes to the right to Bayh, and to the Left from Wellstone and Bradley. Bush won his primaries easily, though McCain and Dole gave some opposition here and their. With a centrist's Bayh and Bush (somewhat) as the nominees of the major parties, the Left boomed. Nader got 11% in Georgia, and averaged 10% in most states. Buchanan won the Teamsters and AFL-CIO endorsements for his protectionist positions. The election was extremely close, though I pulled it off. Two days before the election, it looked like Bush was gonna win a landslide.

Which were the best states for Nader and Buchanan?

President Bill Clinton (D-AR)/Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT)-60 EV, 31,090,782 popular votes.
Businessman Ross Perot (Reform-TX)/Economist Pat Choate (Reform-DC)-8,404,142 popular votes.
Activist Ralph Nader (G-CT)/Musician Jello Biafra (G-CA)-2,155,677 popular votes.

I was Nader. Im gonna play him in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and maybe I will add him for the 2012 scenario. My best state was California, with 8.7%, and in Vermont I got 8.1%. I performed well in Maine, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Mass.

Aw, man...I forgot about this thread! I played for the first time in a while last week and got a ridiculously close result. It was one of the best campaigns I've run yet. It came down to a little over 100 votes in Washington and I won. I wish I saved the map!

I think it was something like this:


279-259

I remember spending way too much time defending the Northeast (because I was Obama facing Giuliani) and neglecting everywhere else. I started losing the Midwest near the end and thought I was done for when the whole area started going Republican. I won the popular vote by only a few thousand too. It was awesome...SO close

Bush/Quayle V Cuomo/Casey [w/ Perot]
281-257

Barely any states had a candidate see over 50%.  Bush beat Cuomo in Ohio by about 1800 votes, and Perot continued to get about 20% of the vote throughout most of the states.

2004 Hard



Dean/Clark 310 EV's 47.8% 50,373,181
Bush/Cheney 228 EV's 47.8% 50,367,264
Nader 0 EV's 1.9% 1,997,581
Badnarik 0 EV's 1.5% 1,605,080
Peroutka 0 EV's 0.9% 952,996

This is probably the most intense campaign I have ever played. Being Howard Dean I was in a primary where nobody wanted to drop out. First person did not drop out until May and I had to use all my PIPs to convince Kerry to drop out a month before the convention. When the GE started I was down 6 points with not a lot of undecideds left so my only choice was to go negative on Bush and put many footsoldiers on the ground while I hope for scandals. By election night I was down by 1 but led in the EV count. My strategy succeeded as you can see. I ended up winning by less than a few thousand votes in the PV and didn't gain a PV vote lead until an hour before counting was complete.

Senator John Kerry (D-MA)/Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM)-273 EV, 46.3% of popular vote.
President George Bush (R-DC*)/Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX)-265 EV, 47.4% of the popular vote.
Others-6.3% of the popular vote.

I played Kerry, and quickly used momentum to knock out all rivals. I won Iowa by a massive margin, Dean, my nearest opponent, got 9% of the vote. I won every early to middle primary, and no rival got more than 200 delegates. Near the end, Clark gave me a minor challenge, winning all the end primaries, but I had 2000 delegates to his 800. I also added Ron Paul as a primary candidate, with about 10% to Powell, who I edited to have 20%. Paul won Iowa, and Powell won NH. Chafee endorsed Paul and Powell fizzled out after South Carolina. Bush only won by 300 delegates, and Paul became his VP. So I assume Bush registered as a citizen of DC for that too work. I raised a ton of money and ran a negative campaign. But when the general started, I was down energy wise -175 because of a whole weeks worth of fundraisers. Still, adds, scandals, and spinning stories kept things tight, though Kerry did no campaigning for 3 weeks, and lost all 3 debates by massive margins. I made no media appearances. The race was called at 4:48 AM. I won New Hampshire by 704 votes, and by 146 votes in New Mexico.

Used NVGonzalez's new update (It's AMAZING),
President Barack Obama (D-IL)/Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)-237 EV, 46,286,971 popular votes
Donald Trump (R-NY)/Governor Susana Martinez (R-NM)-217 EV, 45,533,806 popular votes
Governor Gary Johnson (L-NM)/Lance Brown (L-CA)-84 EV, 37,555,872 popular votes
Kent Mesplay (G-CA)/Grace Ross (G-IL)-0 EV, 104,797 popular votes

Obama absolutely would've won had I not ran as Johnson. Congress elected Obama.

The 2012 Scenario on the theoryspark site:



Trump/Christie- 333 EV's, 49%

Clinton/Obama(of all people)-205 EV's, 43.%

Root/Brown-0 EV's,3.5 %
Baldwin/Castle-0 EV's,4.4%


The Independents screwed me up in the Northeast, as they cost me Rhode island and Maine to Hillary. I came from behind to beat Romney, and Hillary won in an upset at the convention.

Weirdest game yet...The sucesser game to my last post here.

President John Kerry (D-MA)/Vice President Bill Richardson (D-NM)-352 EV, 51.4% of the popular vote.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY)/Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK)-186 EV, 45.4% of the popular vote.
Former Congressman Bob Barr (L-GA)/Activist Mary Ruwart (L-TX)-0 EV, 3.2% of the popular vote.

I turned off all Democrats accept for Kerry, with Sharpton, Nader, and Kucinich being primary opponents.  I received no opposition, though. The Republican primaries were between Romney and Paul, before Rudy won big on Super Tuesday. Up until the last week, Rudy was leading. A few good ads changed that Wink

 Edit: Used the wrong map, but it was pretty much right. Same percentages and states, same number I listed below the map, just differant numbers on the map.

Does anyone know when 2012 comes out?  Or are they just adding the 2012 scenario as an update, and not make a new game?  (I can't decide whether to wait till the new game version comes out Wink)

KENNEDY V REAGAN - 1980

I started off being spanked

I had clear leads in only MN, GA, DC and MA at points, and was down by 7% in the general polls.

But in the last 3 weeks, I engaged in saturation advertising and focusing on the Rust Belt, the Northeast, the Mississippi Corridor as well as California.

I suddenly surged and in the final polls I had closed the gap to only 3%...



Kennedy/Glenn - 299EV - 43.9%
Reagan/Bush - 239EV - 44%
Anderson/Lucey - 0EV - 12.1%

I did lose the popular vote, but only by 109,000

2010 Arizona Senate Election.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ)-904,360 votes (56.0%).
Activist David Nolan (L-AZ)-365,579 votes (22.6%).
Former Governor Janet Napolitano (D-AZ)-329,209 votes (20.4%).
Activist Jerry Joslyn (G-AZ)-16,684 votes (1.0%).

I played Nolan. My strategy? Footsoldiers! Footsoldiers! Footsoldiers! Every county, every week, new ones were made. I edited the game slightly to give Nolan one crusader, in the form of Ron Paul. I came within 4% of Apache county. I figure I was the "Tea Party" candidate.

Edit: I got my colors confused. I also realized colors is "colors" not "colars".....

2012 Scenario:



Newt Gingrich/Mitt Romney 452 EV, 57.7% PV
Barack Obama/Joe Biden 86 EV, 42.7% PV

Obama was leading until the final week by about 48-44. On the eve of the election I had 268 EVs in my pocket. Good ad strategy, foot soldiers, and strong third debate performance.

In the primary I edged out Cain in Iowa and New Hampshire and got a nice national boost. Cain beat me in SC/FL however, and Romney took every Feb state except for Arizona (which I won by a hair). Cain, Romney, and Gingrich split Super Tuesday and eventually I rebounded, gaining the endorsements of everyone who dropped out, and secured the nomination with California with about ~54% of the delegates. Picked Romney as VP to  hammer Obama faster.

2012 Scenario is fun. Some states need to be fixed though.

The Scenario theory spark released. Also Obama seems to have 0% chance of beating Hillary when she is turned on. It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy to win as her.
