Seems interesting. Is it a dowloadable game ? If yes, can you give me a link ? Thanks a lot.

You can download a cheap demo, but you need to buy the game online.

An amazing game. Only a political geek would love it though. I'm actually playing it now, still on demo though. (1 more day! Smiley) I'm Bill Richardson, running against Joe Biden. in the Democratic primaries.

I played as Badnarik in my created "Stephen Colbert 2008" General Election scenario. I campaigned across the country and did the easiest things to drum up support and it worked. McCain destroyed Colbert for much of the campaign but only the good press that Colbert got from interviews and such, held him up against McCain but that fizzled away and Colbert underpreformed pretty bad come election day.



(R)-John McCain/Mitt Romney: 51.5%, 439 EV
(D)-Stephen Colbert/Evan Bayh: 43.7%, 99 EV
(L)-Michael Badnarik/Lance Brown: 4.8%, 0 EV

I can't seem to drum up enough support as an Independant. How did you manage to get 4.8%???

All I usually do is put footsoldier after footsoldier in a number of key states(I usually try to target five states and try to get 5 footsoldiers in each) and also when I can get it in I would do barnstorming, etc to continue and win over and get some acceleration in polls. Take the Libertarian ticket I ran as, I got a little over 20% in TX and OK, I nearly got 20% in AK, got a little over 30% in KS and got 11% in MO. So to simplify, target five states(have a big one in your sights so that can ramp up your national popular vote, mix the other four with medium and small states if you wish and target those repeatably to also help out in the national popular vote). But remember, the Democratic and Republican candidates also matter, so does just targeting only small states(EX: I ran as Nader in '04 and was only able to target two states but I targeted CT and ME and got 18% and 10% in those states but only got 0.5% nationally)

Yes this was very long but I hope that some of this helps. Smiley

Well, I just finished my first game, as Mitt Romney. Smiley I actually did a lot better than final private polls showed. I was down by 8 points, and ended up only losing by 2.5 points. Louisiana was the only suprise. I trailed in Virginia and Colorado the whole way, but a final day push won it. I wasn't really that close to winning. Nevada, Iowa, and Wisconsin all barely went Democrat, but that didn't push me over. I lost Ohio and Louisiana by 9 points, and Michigan by 7.
Oh well, I'll get `em next time!.

Romney/Palin : 56,512,375  48.3%
Richardson/Clark: 60,552,194 51.7%

Closest States: Iowa, Nevada, Wisconson, Virginia, Colorado, Arkansas

I hate to spam this up, but I won for the first time.. Smiley

Bahney(me)/Romney: 103,194,260 52.3%              391 EV's
Kucinich/Dodd:            92,157,951   46.7%              147 EV's

Closest States: California, Ohio, Pennyslvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconson, New Hampshire.

Irony: I didn't spend a dime in CA, or even barnstorm there. I was trailing by 14 points on election day.

It got way too confusing since they were the exact opposite. I will admit, I'm so used to seeing Blue as Republican that the map looks kinda weird.

Just a question: Are you  guys all using President Forever 2004? Just wondering where you're getting all the scenarios from.
Anyone?

In another run as an third party candidate in my "Colbert '08" scenario, I played as the Constitution Party candidate Michael Peroutka and got over 30% in KY, over 20% in UT, TX and TN. The campaign between the Republican and Democratic candidates, Sam Brownback and Stephen Colbert was a slug fest as both vied for their short time as leaders in polls. This continued until election, which spat out a very strange results as Colbert was actually leading in the polls before.



(R)-Sam Brownback/George Pataki: 295 EV, 49.2%
(D)-Stephen Colbert/Bill Richardson: 243 EV, 47%
(C)-Michael Peroutka/Chuck Baldwin: 0 EV, 3.8%

Well, I just completed an exciting game, defeating Hillary Clinton with Romney.  After barely edging out Giuliani in the primaries, I chose him as my VP, while Clinton chose Sebelius. Neither of us ever gained a lead over 2% in national polls. The economy tanked in mid-October. My campaign ran out of money at the end. Extremely close. I was on the tip of my chair the whole way.

Close State Results:
Louisiana: Romney wins by 18,000 votes
Ohio: Romney wins by 63,000 votes

Pennyslvania: Clinton wins by 20,000 votes
Wisconsin: Clinton wins by 39,000 votes

Colorado: Romney wins by 5,000 votes
Nevada: Romney wins by 9,000 votes
New Mexico: Romney wins by 17,000 votes.

In a way, I only won by about 5,000 votes in Colorado, because if it had gone for Hillary, it would have been a tie. I don't know how PF determines a winner in a tie.
(Romney wins over 75% of the Utah vote)

National Popular Vote:
Romney/Giuliani:  98,276,362   50.3%
Clinton/Sebelius: 97,037,943    49.7%

Alaska: 19%, Maine: 11.3%, California: 10.1%, Vermont: 9.9%
Other good results in Colorado (8.2%), MA (6.5%), Hawai'i (6.1%), Montana (6.1%), Rhode Island (6%), Minnesota (5.6%),

The game has some interesting twists. Louisiana is always extremely close, and California is winnable for a Republican in the `08 scenario.

I just ran a pretty intense election. Fred Thompson should have won the Republican primaries in real life. He was actually a pretty good candidate.

Thompson/McCain: 99,030,069   50.7%
Edwards/Kerry: 96,284,236        49.3%

Polls going into election Day:


Final Results:


Closest States:
Nevada-Thompson wins by 434 votes
Wisconsin-Thompson wins by 10,000 votes
New Hampshire: Edwards wins by 15,000 votes

Results are shockingly similar to the 2004 election.
(Another interesting this is, I never led in the National Popular vote, or the Electoral Vote, once during the campaign)

An interesting game.
I was Brownback. The game has a weird glitch to where Ron Paul wins a state if he has more than 3% there. That made me lose to Thompson. But, I got Paul's endorsement and his delegate, so I won by 7 delegates, I believe.

Brownback/Pawlenty: 107,227,933   54.6%
Clinton/Feingold:          87,362,401    44.5%
Barr/Root:                      1,745,242         .9%

Future Historians would describe this election as "tricky"

         

Interesting State Results:
California-Brownback wins by 1.5 million vote (54-44%)
Washington-Brownback wins by 600,000 (57-41%)
District of Columbia-Clinton wins by 150,000 (66-33%)
(Massachusetts and Vermont were both toss-up states)
