Second Game...



Barack Obama (D-IL)/Mark Warner (D-VA): 459 Electoral Votes, 54.9% PV
John McCain (R-AZ)/Haley Barbour (R-GA): 79 Electoral Votes, 45.1% PV

Alabama kept switching back and forth through the election night, but at the end of the day I was unable to win it. Sad

Lost North Dakota by about a thousand votes.

P4E is truly one of those games where "It ain't over 'till its over"... I went from losing the last debate 4 to 8, and Massachusetts/Vermont/New York being toss-ups to this.



Paul Tsongas/Bob Kerrey: 313 Electoral Votes, 52.2% PV
George HW Bush/Dan Quayle: 225 Electoral Votes, 47.8% PV

How? I figured I was done for, so I just blew all my cash running 50 state ads bashing Bush on the economy for the last 2 weeks.

I edited Don Carcieri into the game...

Don Carcieri (Me)
Mitt Romney
John McCain

I won a plurality of delegates, but McCain threw his to Romney and I lost. Sad

Strange map...I played as Perot.

1992:



H. Ross Perot/James Stockdale:  201 EV; 33.1%
George Bush/Colin Powell:  199 EV; 33.8%
Andrew Cuomo/Ann Richards:  138 EV; 33.2%

Bush ended up winning in the House, but still, it was neat to win as an Independent.



Goddamn, you did really well.

I must ask, however, do you mean Mario Cuomo, and not Andrew Cuomo? Wink

lol, yeah I meant Mario.

I was surprised Cuomo did so badly.  I couldn't believe Bush pulled off Illinois either...

I was really surprised by the results.  I was only projected to win the Northeast, the Mormon Triangle, and the Dakotas, but I ended up doing much better.

Even with fog of war off, polling can be a little off sometimes, relative to the actual results.

(For instance, once in 2000 I was safe in all the Bush 2000 states, but wound up losing Texas and Idaho, and winning Pennsylvania.)

Atlasia Forever: Oct. 2010 : Pop Primaries

Here is a taste of the scenario Dallas is working on I played as myself.

Dallas had an early lead in most states but started losing ground after my wins in IA and NH. Then AndrewCT kept his campaign alive after performing well in the south and a big win in NY. I did not secure enough delegates until the last Primary avoiding a convention fight.



JBrase - 1081 delegates, 40.6%

Dallasfan65 - 514 delegates, 31.5%
AndrewCT 445 Delegates, 27.9%


cool Cheesy

Thanks.

This scenario is still in it's earlier stages, but I'll let everybody know when an official version is out. Lot of stuff still needs tinkering with.

Can I be in it?

We'll see... I don't want to start a slippery slope of everybody demanding their own character, as I only have so many slots.

You could be a crusader though. Tongue

are you planning on adding the other major parties?

Well, P4E is conducive to a 2-major party system, but if you want things to be interesting, I could make a scenario with three parties going at it.

(What would really be fun is if I did February 2010.)

Well actually in the CanEditor, you can creat new character slots

Ah. See, just now I realize this.

Anywho, I could develop a 3 party scenario for October, but it'd be a separate scenario.

I want to be a crusader!
I could do well in a Populares primary, but I'm too lazy to put forth the effort.

I have you as my Crusader, and you have a substantial base power. Smiley

I'll make you an optional candidate, though.

P.S. (Do you have this game?)

Cheesy Please do

Could you do POP, JCP, DA and RPP? Cheesy

Well, that seems like an unlikely scenario for October. Tongue

I had POP v RPP v DA/JCP in mind for the alternate.

Popularis Primaries



Dallasfan65 - 1194 Delegates
AndrewCT - 846 Delegates

General Election:



Dallasfan65/Andrew CT - 344 Electoral Votes, 52.4% PV
Purple State/Joe Biden - 194 Electoral Votes, 47.6% PV

(Er uhm yeah... I need to edit the whole Joe Biden thing.)


EDIT: I found out why CT was such a beast. I gave him 50,000,000 (comparatively I had about 7 million) yet I still beat him. Wow... Tongue

I had POP v RPP v DA/JCP in mind for the alternate.

That would work. Would you just be putting in top competitors or also minor candidates?

I could do a bunch of minor candidates that are initially turned-off, but are optional to turn on. (Several POP's in the primary, for instance.)

Want me to email you a draft I've got going on right now? It still needs some fleshing out/fine tuning but it's playable.
