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%

Should I publish this as a game rn or wait for later?
Nah.

I'm interested in launching a potential alternate history scenario. It would be based on Mock Parliament to some extent, but it is a different concept for the most part. I'd love to have a more experienced moderator (like Lumine) co-moderate the game with me!

I'm envisioning a game that is similar to your standard presidential election game, but with a parliamentary system instead. Each player would be the leader of a party (listed below), and would have to campaign with candidates in select ridings. I'll provide an electoral map and list the specific constituencies in the country (351 total), and the players would be responsible for targeting key districts/ridings/constituencies, winning debates, running ads, etc, etc, etc.

I'm looking for experienced players, as the number of slots are limited. The reason I'm being such a dick about this is because I intend to use the results of this game as part of a timeline I've been working on for years Tongue. Afterwards, I'll use the results to write the timeline's prologue and setting up the foundation for a possible sequel should this one be successful.

So, I've decided that it'd be for the better if I write the timeline first, and then once I reach the present day, I'll try and run a scenario based on it. It'd be no different than any of our previous games aside from the setting. Each player would take a party leader, write up a schedule, campaign on various issues, make ads, support critical candidates in targeted constituencies, etc, etc. However, starting such a game without fully outlining the history behind it would leave to many blank holes to play past.

But I'll keep everyone posted in case there's an interest.

I got an idea - what about an alternate history scenario like the Confederate Presidential Election of 2018?

The only issue with this is that many prominent Southern politicians are minorities, and a Confederate nation would probably still have at least segregation, these people were called "Fire-Eaters", that is how committed they were to not having racial equality
What I'm envisioning is a South where slavery is abolished ~1890 and replaced with an Apartheid-like system that eventually gets abolished with the Civil Rights Act of 1991 (ie, citizenship and voting rights). Even now 2019, private businesses can still refuse services, which would be an issue.

If I created an alternate universe (IE, develop a history, fill in who is Congress, Governors, etc), would anyone want to use it for an election game? I can't moderate due to time constraints but I think the idea is fairly interesting.
