Call me dumb, but how do I generate these maps? I have my best result that I want to post. I have it memorized pretty well.

How do you play this game? Were do you find it?

Google search result for "President Forever" should get you there. You need to pay $12 to buy the game so it is completable - it is worth it.

This was a weird one...

I was doing great and going for a landslide, but started losing some states. However, in the end, I got a pretty good EV victory while losing the PV.

On the New Direction scenario...Feingold/Frist/Cobb/Ventura.

Notice that the map is quite boring...much like 2000 except for NM going Republican and NH going Democrat. Oh, and one other state changed hands, too. Wink

CA was darn close which accounts for my PV loss. I won it by 13,862 votes - 45.9% to 45.8%.

Nationwide:

Frist 47% (59,392,857)
Feingold 46% (57,593,205)
Cobb 3% (3,875,403)
Ventura 3% (3,860,813)

I also am proud to say I won Texas by 8.6. Cobb got an amazing 7.9% there, too.

I played as both Bush and Kerry trying to mimick the actual campaign...Kerry did a flip-flop on free trade to move in a populist direction. His ad production got delayed and the debate was drawn...Bush got a lot of momentum and Kerry never recovered. In the end the PV remained pretty close, Bush winning by close to 4 points, but carrying almost all the close states and getting 400 EVs.

It's funny looking back at the preprogrammed numbers for this election and seeing what the authors assumed the situation in states like West Virginia and Vermont was.

Using a rather odd strategy, I managed this result in 2004, Bush vs. Kerry:

This is without dynamism, by the way.

Out of curiosity, what was the strategy? Cheesy

Make ads (try to make them Highly Successful) and then launch all four of them in the last two days, or however much time you have for them to run with your current money. Otherwise, the states that will swing wildly due to the ads shift back after a few days.

Nice game, Joe I-OH avatar user, but wasn't Alaska a bigger victory than the Utah victory?

I decided to download that scenario of Sarnstrom's. Smiley

2008 - Clinton (me) vs. Giuliani

You have no chance to survive make your time.

Img


Hillary Clinton - 538 EVs - 66% PV
Rudy Giuliani - 0 EVs - 33% PV

Clinton got 92.2% of the vote in DC.  The closest state was Alabama, which Clinton won 52.2%-47.7%.

HILLARY SMASH

Way to botch the Clallam County vote, asscream.

I have no freaking clue how I won Okanagan County while losing Clallam County... Tongue

Moreover, getting over 60 percent as a Democrat in Garfield County while losing Clallam County. Tongue
