Yeah.  Whoever makes these games sure has a wild imagination. Tongue



1980


Former Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA)/Governor Bob Graham (D-FL) - 442 EVs (55.7%)
Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA)/Congressman George Bush (R-TX) - 96 EVs (44.3%)

This one was almost too easy.

I haven't been around for a while, but I decided to get back in the game.  Here's a map from this morning:



Bill D. Cat (R)- 76,697,167 / 469 electoral votes
Hillary Clinton (D) - 50,240,388 - 69 electoral votes

The biggest surprise was how well I did in the "swing" states: 67% in NM, 61% in WA, and just under 70% (69.7%) in Ohio!

Why didn't you just go full throttle and pick Allen West for VP or something. I forget, is he an option in 2012?

Yeah, he is, but I thought winning as Bachmann would be difficult on its own. Tongue

I started looking around for different scenarios, and I came upon a blog that has plenty of them: mayoral, senatorial, gubernatorial... pretty much everything.  So I downloaded a Texas 2014 gubernatorial scenario.  I played on easy mode without the primary, and I led Perry throughout most of the game.  Somehow, Perry "won" because he had more "electoral votes" than me.  Don't know how the hell that works, but I ended up winning the popular vote at the end.

Played it again, this time with the primary.  I thought Parker was certain to get the nomination thanks to his ten-point lead in the polls, but a series of concessions and horse-trading at the convention allowed me to clinch victory.  This time, I had a huge advantage over Perry from the start, who had come out of a fairly easy, yet brutal, Republican primary.

I played on Medium as Tommy Lee Jones and lost in the primary (even though I was leading by a lot for most of the game then), but I was able to beat Perry/Straus by a very good margin with Kirk/Castro.

The State Convention must have been set for the wrong year. The primary just never ended. You can fix that in the candidate editor.

So I decided to just get it and play a Martinez/McDonnell vs Biden/Hickenlooper vs Bloomberg/Hagel with me controlling Martinez and Biden just to make things interesting... Anyways, a few weeks before the debate I tinkered with Biden's Gay Marriage and a few other issues to the right two ticks just to shake thin's up... Now its two weeks before the Election and Martinez is surprisingly gaining momentum as with Biden amazingly... Bloomberg so far hasn't gained momentum even with Biden's slight leaning to the Center (or Centre for the Europeans)

Anyways here's the three weeks:


Governor Susana Martinez R-NM/Governor Bob McDonnell R-VA 296 EVS (so far)
Vice President Joe Biden D-DE/Governor John Hickenlooper D-CO 193 (so far)
Tossup: 49 EV

Over the next week, I forgot to have Biden practice for the last debate, in which he utterly failed... but apparently without a drop in the polls! Yes that's right Biden/Hickenlooper jumped and picked up Washington, Oregon and New Hampshire! But right before the Final Debates I tapped Martinez's positions to the Right and Biden's to the left. (IIRC I tapped one to the center)
Also, I apparently struck Rhode Island's cord and its now a tossup! Cheesy Huh Cheesy Oh, and uh, I made Maine into Martinez's column...



Governor Susana Martinez R-NM/Governor Bob McDonnell R-VA 291 EVS
Vice President Joe Biden/Governor John Hickenlooper D-CO 202 EVS
Tossup: 45

The final week I just had the Candidates and Veeps go to their candidate's states... and I tapped Martinez to the right on one or two issues...


Governor Susana Martinez R-NM/Governor Bob McDonnell R-VA 317 EVS
Vice President Joe Biden D-DE/Governor John Hickenlooper D-CO 221 EVS

Obviously the biggest surprises were Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Colorado... I definitely like it Smiley

Won with a character I created in the TX 2014 gubernatorial scenario.  I'll admit I tried skewing the game a bit with Wendy Davis because she's my first customized player, but it was a tough race even on easy mode.

I wanted to see what the map would look like if I ran the most conservative Democratic ticket against the most liberal Republican ticket.  Here's what happened.

2016


Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV)/Fmr. Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) - 322 EVs (54.8%)
Fmr. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA)/Fmr. Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) - 216 EVs (45.4%)

I thought Manchin would sweep the South and Brown would sweep the North, but it isn't too different from a 1992/96 map.

Please... I ran Charles Mathias/Richard Schweiker v. George Wallace/Robert Byrd. Get on my level
