The 2008 Colin Powell Scenario, I played as Powell.
Frist/Santorum: 31%, 92 EV
Clark/Edwards: 31%, 237 EV
Powell/Rice: 36%, 209 EVs

It was a close race. Most states didn't even have a 5% difference between first and second place.

Dynamism off, and I didn't do that last day ad trick.
I got this as Mondale. I won the popular vote, but barely lost the electoral vote. Kentucky was a swing state during the last week, I was hoping I'd get it and win.

I was able to get a couple of big scandals on Reagan. In the midst of the scandals, I noticed Texas had more undecided voters than the difference between the two candidates, so I heavily campaigned there until I won the state over.
Reagan: 47%, 277 EVs
Mondale: 52%, 261 EVs

I played as Bush against Kerry. In this game I never moved either George Bush or Dick Cheney -both of them stayed in place the entire game.
Bush: 290 EV & 50%
Kerry: 248 EV & 49%

edit: oops. Tennessee went for Kerry, not Bush.

This game is whacky with the way things turn around. In the version I have if you don't run all the candidates in the multiple candidate scenarios you or your opponent will only get a very small percentage. Did they ever correct that? For example when I play Wallace vs Nixon in some states wallace has like 2% and Nixon like 54%. Did they ever fix it so its become more balanced?
I think that was fixed in the first patch.

Powell/Cheney: 56% and 500 EVs
Kerry/Edwards: 43% and 38 EVs

I decided to post it because it was a nice, big, round number of EVs. No last day ad blitz, either- I kept a positive amount of money.



hey can you run me against again, but this time change the person I run against...

Why don't you just get the game?
Yea. It's pretty cheap.

1860 Election, I played as Bell.

Image Link
Second in PV, third in EV. I won the most states.

Since there was no EV majority, Congress made it's decision. I crossed my fingers...

They picked Lincoln. Sad

Ah well, it was a fun scenario. The ads seem to be way too cheap, though- it only costs $2,300 or so per day to run a nationwide ad.
Speaking of ads- at one point, Lincoln was running five ads at once in Maine. Crazy.

Isn't there a maximum of 4 ads at a time?
Exactly, I didn't understand it either.

Edit: I ran through the scenario again. Here's a screenie of it:

Negative ad campaign, 4 crusaders, an assload of foot soldiers, and 3 high level scandals on my opponent.
You play with foot soldiers? IMO they're just a waste of CP.

Top Dog 2008 scenario:

Sam Brownback/Pat Robertson - 253 EVs (40%)
Russ Feingold/Barrack Obama - 145 EVs (32%)
David Cobb/Pat LaMarche - 0 EVs (1%)
Donald Trump/Jesse Ventura - 140 EVs (25%)

And Congress selected... Donald Trump!

I ran as Cobb and did not intervene.

I played as Bell.

Lincoln: 43 EV; 32%
Breckinridge: 45 EV; 16%
Douglas: 110 EV; 29%
Bell: 105 EV; 21%

The election was thrown to the House, who elected...

Douglas Sad Ah well. Crazy map though.

Another 1860 game, this time I played as Breckinridge.

Lincoln: 122 EV; 33%
Breckinridge: 127 EV; 28%
Douglas: 54 EV; 27%
Bell: 0 EV; 11%

The election was thrown to the Republican-controlled Congress, who elected Lincoln. If I had gotten 1% more of Lincoln's vote share in Pennsylvania, I would have won a majority in the Electoral College.

Obama/Blanco: 527 EVs, 61%
Huckabee/Martinez: 11 EVs, 38%

the congressional districts are guesses, but Huckabee was only up by 2% in Nebraska.

Manchurian Candidate: 1956 Scenario; third parties off.

Iselin: 81 EV; 41% PV
Lyman (me): 450 EV; 58% PV

I stopped the attempted communist sabotage of the national government singlehandedly, by defeating Iselin in a landslide.

Delaware, Maine, Arizona, Alabama, Kansas, Idaho were all within two percent.

I think it's obvious who the programmers of this game support, as both Kucinich and Paul consistently recieve more of the primary vote than they should be getting.

Yes. Modify the endorsers list in the scenario folder, i'd assume.

I ran 1860 as a straight up Lincoln v. Bell, and got this:

Lincoln: 73% PV, 303 EV
Bell: 27% PV, 0 EV

How does one get <50% in a two way race?
