I guess I could either reserve or Propose this idea:

Provisional Title: "After the New Blue Dog: A 2016 Election Game"

Summary: Based off my surprisingly smash hit of a Timeline "A New Blue Dog for America's Health" (Here: https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=281052.0), it is the year 2015 and the impressive Presidency of Phil Bredesen has gone by Eventfully and now he is no Longer eligible to run for Office, With both parties hoping to get their own Candidate in the White House.

For the Democrats, currently, with the current President not being allowed to run for another term. With the Vice President, SOS, SOT, and Senator Bernie Sanders taking prominent roles in the Leadership of the party, it seems that the party may have to discover new leadership. With this in mind, the new leader does certainly look to be an establishment Candidate from either the Administration or Congress.

For the Republicans, after two big landslide defeats, they are completely shattered with both outsiders and Establishment Candidates vying for control for the party. With the GOP totally divided, anyone could become the Nominee. The question is, will they be able to re-unite a destroyed party.

With both parties getting ready for war, could a Third Party be able to sneak through and win?

(Things that happen in this game might be retconned in the TL, but everything that happens here will be it's own separate timeline from the TL once it starts)

In Case anyone was wondering, here was the Primaries and the 2012 Election in this version:

2012 DEM Primary:



Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)

2012 GOP Primaries:



Former Gov George Pataki (R-NY)
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR)
Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)

2012 General:



Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)/VP Blanche Lincoln (D-AR): 529/59.8%
Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY)/Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK): 9/30.1%

A 2008 election game where John Kerry won in 2004 but his presidency was terrible so he faces primary opponents.

With odds like that, he probably would just say to running again at all.

So, to gauge interest, does AtNBD:A2016EG sound like a good idea?

In this Mad Season a 2020 election game.

Robert Muller indicts President Trump in May 2018 which leaves Mike Pence to be president. He later picks Ohio Govenor John Kasich as VP and the Republicans end up losing the senate and barely keeping the House.

I need a co mod to do this with me.

 
I don't think you know what indictment means..

Someone can be indicted but still not convicted. Indictment just means you have charges held against you.

A perfect example is Ernie Fletcher

Games are generally best when you don't try and use them like Timelines.

Interactive Timelines are actually really Popular fsr.

I liked the idea of Blue Florida and was enjoying it until it turned out that a sock account was rigging it for McCain.
However I do want to see it tried again but this time fair.

Maybe we could restart we where except McCain is no longer in the race

The threads locked though.

A new thread, I mean, and we link the original game in that thread.

would anyone be interested in re-starting the Blue Florida from where we left off before the whole UWS drama? (I wouldn't as I was playing as Bredesen and I think I was doing pretty well.)

with the recent death of The War of the Three Kingdoms, I would like to offer a Historical Alternative for it called
Brother vs Brother

Img

Summary: It is the year 1861 and the American Civil War has just begun. With the United States in chaos over the issue of slavery, France is looking to create their own empire in Mexico while Prussia looks to expand her power in the German Confederation. While this happens, the United States is fighting it's own civil war with the South fighting for her own independence from the United States and preserve her southern culture while the North fights to hold the Union Together. With the world now in chaos and with the ability that anyone may be able to come out on top, the top dog may be the unexpected one.

Important characters will be important Union and Confederate Generals, Otto Von Bismarck, Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Napoleon III, Maximillian von Hapsburg, Alexander II, Franz Josef, and Queen Victoria.

The most important area will be, ofc, the United States though there will be other places to be involved depending on what happens in the region. Factors will include War Exhaustion, the Economy, Starvation, and Manpower.

Will post this game if I get enough of a response.

I'd definitely be down for this.

I'll post only if a few more people are down for it.

How does this sound:

Quote
The New Normal - A 2024 Election Game

2020 Result:

Pres. Trump (R-NY)/VP Pence (R-IN): 350/48.7%
Gov. Cuomo (D-NY)/Sen. Booker (D-NJ): 188/46.3%

Closest states were Minnesota (within 3 points), Michigan (within 2.5 points), Nevada (within 3.1 points), New Hampshire (within .6 points), Colorado (within .4 points), and PA (within 2 points)

2022 Senate Results:



57-43

House

260-178

Summary: After the Election of 2016, the polls showed President Trump behind every Democratic candidate except for a few outliers. Andrew Cuomo of New York was said outlier and due to a terrible performance by him and his running mate, Cory Booker of New Jersey, they lost the 2020 Election in a landslide. With President Trump's second term finished, the Republican party are split between Trumpists, Never-Trumpers, and Hardcore Conservative, each of which supporting a candidate with varying results. For the Democrats, with Senator Bernie Sanders announcing that he won't run, they are scrambling to find a candidate that will carry the same success as Sanders did though the idea is lacking somewhat. Due to how unnormal the Trump Presidency has been and how each candidate is strange in their own way, Journalists have dubbed this election: The New Normal.

Rules: 1. You can get 3 endorsements per turn. A player endorsement does not count as an endorsement. these endorsements can boost your polling a tad bit but don't expect them to carry you over. (PM me for Endorsement confirmation)

2. You can air ads depending on the circumstances: If you are polling 8-10% Nationally, you can air one ad. If you are polling more than 11% Nationally, you can air 2-4 ads.

3. Just like every other game, this Election Game will have three phases:

Primary Phase: Assuming campaign announcements to have come earlier in the year, this primary season will take us from September 2023 to June 2024, with players from the Democratic and Republican Parties fighting to emerge as the frontrunner or even the nominee of their respective parties.

Convention Phase: Both main parties will enter this phase to decide on their eventual nominee, although the gameplay will be very limited if a player has already won his respective nomination. Should a party lack a clear nominee, a gameplay system encouraging backroom deals as the ballots move forward will be put in place. (Takes place in the month of July)

General Election Phase: Taking us from August 13th to November 4th, 2024, with eight turns of a week to account for the final stage of the campaign as players play the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, and potentially some key surrogates for their campaigns.

4. Debates are very important and may hurt or help you in the polls depending on whatever happens

5. Until the Early primaries, a Turn lasts the length of a month In-Game and is 96 Hours IRL. If a candidate hasn't posted what they deem necessary, they will be affected greatly in polling.

6. Like other games, I will use a number randomizer to determine positive and negative news for the candidates. 1-5 will be positive experiences (1 being great news) and 95-100 will be negative experiences (100 being terrible news). 6-94 will be no news. Real life news will also feature as part of the game for players to exploit (or influence).

7. Third Party candidates are allowed to join, but their respective gameplay will be focused on the General Election. The only exception is the Americans Elect Primaries, which may be a factor if a player wants to run for their nomination (thus making them more successful and relevant than in OTL).

8. If your candidate is not included in the provided list below, make sure to personal message me so that I can approve/reject the candidate. Please make your candidates realistic (they must be real people who would plausibly seek the nomination in 2024, if you don't know if they could work, just ask). Wink

9. Have fun.

Maybe we should stop flooding the forum with the same type of games that keep failing. Just a thought.

Please. Gentlemen, do we really need more than one election game running at the same time? It would be much easier to have an active, engaged election game with a large playerbase if there weren't several election games that suffer an early death.

It isn't going to be played until after 2012 is either done or dead. I'm just taking players

More people in one game means more competition and more gameplay overall. We hardly have any candidates who actually ran in the 2012 game.

Bumping this because I'm dying to play a strategy game, just in case there's someone tempted to host.

I might be planning to make a Fantasy Strategy Game soon
