If y'all haven't tried out this board game, give it a go. Played it with my girlfriend the other night, and while I led most of the game as JFK she opened a wide lead following the debates and crushed me 325-212! Check out this weird af map we came up with.



Sought a rematch yesterday and managed to narrowly win 286-232-19 this time around, thanks to a change in strategy and a few lucky draws from the deck. See-sawing Illinois went to me in the last minute, which prevented us from getting tied since she forced MS & AL to go unpledged.



Such a fun game and 50/50 just like the election it's based from! Highly recommended for my fellow election geeks on here.

DANG THAT'S EXPENSIVE! Sounds like fun but no way I'm paying upwards of $100 for a board game.

Oh I feel you, it was a birthday present from my best friend. Would not have spent the $$$ it's worth without at least experiencing it first. I promise it's worth it though, you'd best be informing friends and family that it's on your bday list lol
