I'd recommend a 2020 game...though I don't want to run it, and ideally it shouldn't start until after the midterms.

Someone would have to agree to play as Delaney too, as he's already in the race.

Considering how amazing Concert of Europe was and how disappointed I was when the English Civil War game was cancelled and Windjammer's World War I game was delayed, I believe that someone should make another historical strategy game. My recommendations are a 16th century Italian Wars game, a Thirty Years' War game, or a Louis XIV wars game.

Personally, I'd like a World War II game, if only for the concept of actually being able to play as Hitler.

I'd never be able to run it, though...

Currently in the works of a 2016 election game now that the low quality posters seem to have faded away. Stay tuned.

Depending on the scenario, I might be interested...

I'm always up for playing as Hillary/Warren/Biden/ etc.

I'll start working on it soon, unless someone else wants to take a shot at running it.

I wouldn't mind attempting to run the game...but I wouldn't be particularly good at it either, so I'd need a co-GM. If you were interested in doing that (or if NHI was, as I like when he does election games) I'd be happy to to at least co-run the game, doing the Democratic Primary, and being partially responsible for a general election should we get there.

I have been wanting to try to lead an election game. I would probably do a 2020 election where the GOP lost in 2016. Not sure how I could make that really interesting and give a balance in terms of party competition. Its just an idea floating around for now though.

Assuming you plan on having Hillary as President in that scenario, I would be happy to sign on as an incumbent President Clinton.

Would anyone be interested in a 1976 game? It was an interesting election, and has a lot of potential for primary clown cars and independent candidacies.
I have always hoped for a 76 race to be tried

Can we finish the several games we have?

Besides, I'd like to do a 1992 game.

I am thinking of doing a 2018 midterm election game where you are a high profile surrogate for any of the four main parties (Dem, GOP, Lib, Green) and it will start in August and every turn will be two weeks so six turns in total. Your goal is to win or retain the house, Senate and the governor's house

Would anyone play?


I'd play, I'd wait until 2004 2020 and 1968 are all over though

It's a creative idea, but we'd probably have to start somewhere before Election Day 2017, so we can include the Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial races (because those are really important too).

If we did that, I'd happily call either Barack Obama or Joe Biden, because they are the Democrats strongest surrogates who are not up for election (though Biden would at least have to think about about a possible Presidential run).

Also, if we did this, we could agree to continue on to the 2020 elections afterward, doing both the Presidential and Congressional/Gubernatorial races.
