So is there going to be a 2012 full game or just the added scenario to p4e 08?

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.

I've noticed in the 2012 scenario NV is made too democratic.

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.

Good to know that my scenario easily defeats the scenario that the actual game developers actually released Cheesy

Though yes such a horrible scenario.. I played and I was amazed at how horrible it was.

1976:



Ronald Reagan/Jesse Helms-280 EV's,47.7% PV
Jimmy Carter/Walter Mondale-259 EV's,51.2% PV
Eugene McCarthy-1.1% of the PV

This is probably the weirdest game I have ever seen on PF. I played as McCarthy and spaced my way through the game, and Carter mostly dominated the race. Reagan won the last two debates, and Helms barely beat Mondale in the VP debate. In the final pre polls Carter was expected to win big time by winning NY and Texas. But on Election Day, Carter lost both and won Montana and Oklahoma instead, which was unexpected.  McCarthy had 0.5% in the polls and ended up with 1% out of nowhere. I have to admit this was entertaining to watch play out.

Using the March 2007 edition....
EDIT: Image removed, since Tinypic reuses URLs. This one was reused for a rather bizzare picture.

Total results are displayed. Johnson got 8% in Alabama, otherwise, he averaged around 1-4%. It was Locke/Clark vs Romney/Cheney. I was Locke, who I made this afternoon. I started with a strategy of winning NH, NV, Georgia, and Delaware. I expanded into Iowa in August, which I won. I won NH with 45% of the vote, and NV with 50% of the vote. Obama got knocked down quickly, and endorsed me after Super Tuesday. Richardson and Edwards won alot of states, and Biden built up a small mass of delagates, but my real battle was with Hillary. It went to the convention, which I won by 1000 delagates after Richardson and Edwards endorsed me. Romney had no competition it seemed, but then again, I put Hagel, Frist, Allen, Pataki, and Gingrich on as well, so votes were split.

I decided to try Obama v Santorum... I had him pick Susana Martinez as his VP choice.

It was actually incredibly close with neither Obama or Santorum breaking 44% until the last 3 weeks, with I started to spin like crazy and saturation advertising and Obama started to pull away eventually with a 47-44% lead on election day... and this was the map.



So Obama was already at 316 EV

and when all said and done...



Obama/Biden: 405EV - 55%
Santorum/Martinez: 133EV - 44.1%
Others: 0.9%

2012:



Perry/DeMint 55.7% and 358 EV
Obama/Biden 44.3% and 180 EV

Always kinda screwy. Hard to ever get a very close/down to the wire election night on PFP, I only recall getting that once playing as Edwards in 2004.

80% in Wyoming, 81% in Utah, 76% in Texas... lol

Edited my fictional character into a 1976 scenario:

Primaries



Chris Garrett (VT) 1505 final delegates
Carter (GA) 1432 final delegates
Byrd (orange), Wallace (yellow), Jackson (red)

Focused on a few big states, lost the final states (a whole lot of them) in a landslide, but eeked out a majority.

Played my first game earlier today. I chose to play through the 2004 election. Since I was short on time, I played just the General Election. I ran as Howard Dean against George Bush; I also turned on all three party candidates.

Here's how it turned out:





Former Governor Howard Dean (VT)/Senator John Kerry (MA) - 291 EV - 48,906,423 Votes - 47.9%
President George Bush (TX)/Vice President Dick Cheney (WY) - 247 EV - 51,064,805 Votes - 50%
Ralph Nader (CT)/Peter Camejo (NY) - 0 EV - 668,491 - 0.7%
Michael Badnarik (TX)/Richard Campagna (IA) - 0 EV - 697,827 - 0.7%
Michael Peroutka (MD)/Chuck Baldwin (FL) - 0 EV - 692,284 - 0.7%


I managed to squeeze by the electoral college, while losing the popular vote by just over 2 million votes.

I decided to try out the 2012 Scenario, and I picked Bachmann. I turned off Mitt Romney and Herman Cain, hoping for an easier time. Still ended up getting steamrolled over after Super Tuesday.



Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich of Georgia - 1656 Delegates
Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota - 291 Delegates
Governor Rick Perry of Texas - 265 Delegates
Former Governor Gary Johnson of New Mexico - 6 Delegates
Congressman Ron Paul of Texas - 3 Delegates
Former Governor Jon Huntsman of Utah - 2 Delegates
Former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania - 2 Delegates

I really like the 2012 scenario! Just got to 400-odd delegates as Jon Huntsman, quite an achievement.

Can't wait for the Santorum surge update!

I've tried, briefly, with Cain and Romney on, and it seems like no one other than Romney, Gingrich and Cain have any sort of chance at winning the nomination.

This, although stays true to IRL I guess since the game starts just as Perry crashed. Assuming Santorum'll be boosted in the next update.

For whatever its worth, does anyone know where I can more scenarios? I checked theory spark, and their forum, but every single scenario availiable is impossible to attain.
