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.


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.

Is there a way to create endorsers?

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?
