A very interesting game available online now. I'm not too good with, and it seems pretty glitchy. I somehow managed to win the Democrat primaries with 100% of the vote as Wesley Clark.

And here is the less twilight-zone esque general election.

Alternate 2000 election, Dole vs. Gore. Amazingly Nader manages to win a state!

Thanks for the link man! Playing the 1988 election game is getting old.

The game can give weird results some times, but there's WAY more variety and fun to be had in this game.

You can pick any election or candidate from the 1980's to the present day, and you can run for any office. You can even simulate a "career" from city councillor to President of the United States.

The Character Creation is much better, you can customize their policies, their strengths, their biography and even upload a portrait from your computer.

I would say it's a decent game, whether you just want to simulate an imaginary matchup or micromanage an entire campaign.

I haven't found a Mac version yet, sorry.

You know, there are a bunch of smart people on this board. I bet we could get enough people together to create a really good simulation game covering the last century or so of elections.

Really bizarre 2004 HRC-Bush simulation result.

I was able to launch the game and play it normally but for some reason I can't see my budget and can't make ads, if I try, the game crashes after I click in "Ok".

It's a very buggy game.
