Currently under construction, the purpose of this thread will be to gather info on all the US-based election games this forum has seen so far (and there's a lot of them).

For the time being, here's a general idea of what games have we seen through the years:

US Presidential Elections:

Old Elections:

1788-1820: As far as I know, never roleplayed.
1824-1832: Covered by Spamage's Chain of Elections
1836-1944: As far as I know, never roleplayed.

Modern Elections:

1948: Unfinished game shortly ago.
1952-1964: Not roleplayed.
1968: Unifinished attempt.
1972: A couple of short-lived games in the past, then Fear and Loathing (which stopped short of the GE)
1976: Not roleplayed.
1980: Unfinished attempt.
1984-1988: Not roleplayed.
1992: Roleplayed a couple of times. Scott's excellent The 92' Vote almost got to the GE.
1996: Not roleplayed.

Recent Elections:

2000: Roleplayed a few times, NHI's 2000 Election Game was successfully finished (Quayle defeats Daschle).
2004: Roleplayed a few times, with NHI's 2004 Presidential Election and Beyond successfully finishing with a Giuliani victory and continuing on to 2008.
2008: Extensively roleplayed through the years. To my knowledge the sole one to finish was Spamage's epic 2008 Election Game (my first game), in which Bloomberg defeated McCain and Dean.
2012: Extensively roleplayed through the years. Noteworthy mention to Tmthforu94's version some years ago, in which Ayotte/Christie defeated Obama/Clinton.
2016: Extensively roleplayed through the years.
2020: Roleplayed a few times already, without a game to have finished the GE (that I know of).

The Daschle v. Quayle 2000 Election game didn't have NHI as GM... I should know, I was Daschle.
