Based on KaiserDave's congressional district, I had an idea for a 2022 midterm game. I have two ideas for how this could work:

1) This is my preferred idea. There'll be 4 Senate races (probably PA/NC/AZ/GA) up for players to contest, with one Democrat and one Republican per race on a first come first serve basis. If more than 8 people want to play, more Senate races can be added. Additionally, Senate candidates are also allowed to influence House races in their state, using new maps that I can draw for this game (with HR1 passed these maps will prioritize fairness and competitiveness). There will be no primary phase, which should make bringing this game to a close a lot easier (also lets everyone in the game play to the end).

2) Instead of doing multiple races in a long general election phase, I can pick one Senate or Gubernatorial race to do a KaiserDave-style single race game. Open seat races like AZ-Gov or NC-Sen could be the most interesting (though I'd also be partial to an OR-Gov game, perhaps with a third-party leftie in the mix as well). Unlike the first concept, this would have a full primary and general phase.

Thoughts? I would also use the new county results tool to provide pretty detailed election nights if possible.

Update: We're doing 1).

Reservations

North Carolina: Mark Walker (S019) vs. Democrat

Pennsylvania: Ryan Costello (Joeinator) vs. Matt Cartwright (Falterin)

Arizona: Russell Bowers (Brother Jonathan) vs. Mark Kelly (Ishan)

Georgia: Republican vs. Raphael Warnock (Kaiser)

Wisconsin: Republican vs. Democrat

New Hampshire: Republican vs. Democrat

WI/NH will open when all other races are filled

Sounds very cool and I would enjoy both option 1 and 2, I think whichever is best depends on how many people want to play.

Haven't heard a lot in the thread but judging by the poll it looks like people are interested in Option 1.

I'll open the floor for reservations now. Lara Trump (R-NC) has already been taken. These are on a first come first serve basis. In AZ and GA, I would prefer that Mark Kelly and Raphael Warnock be selected as candidates.

I have final say over which candidates will be allowed (e.g. no Alex Jones somehow winning a primary in Arizona). I'll be liberal about this but please try not to be too outrageous with these. Fictional characters are allowed if you can provide a compelling backstory, but again I'll make the final decisions here. Once all 8 slots are filled I'll open more Senate races or 3rd party slots.

Granted, for now. I'll inform you if I need you to switch over.
