my best ever game was this. In 1996 I smoked Dole with 55% of the vote, Perot taking about 11%:




I also did this as Mondale:

I just did this as Hillary Clinton/Obama vs. DeLay/Owens in the 2008 scenario "A New Direction". Oh yeah, did I just whoop his ass:



And with no scandals on DeLay, and one on me. I just kept slamming his integrity.

I also got over 70% in NJ, over 60% in VA, CT, MA, MD, DE, WA, TN, NM, ME, IL, RI, NY and WV, and almost 60% in PA, NC, OH, MO, OR, NH, CO. And DeLay only won Kansas, North Dakota and South Carolina by less than 3 points. 56% of the popular vote.

And for the record, all of these are with Dynamism off.

Also, here's one that I made. It's a ridiculous scenario that I never thought had any chance of happening, I just did it because it'd be easy and thought I would start small in making them. I want to try an Edwards vs. Santorum one in 2012 sometime. Try it out: http://dl.filekicker.com/send/file/150733-J7EH/DeanTheIndependent-2004.zip

I said that I wouldn't play as anyone but Dean until I won with him.

I pulled it off. However I lost the popular vote 51/48.

Did anyone try my independent Dean scenario?

I know it's not really much different from the typical 2004, but I just wanted to start with something easy.

I always thought it was impossible to lose with Powell, but this one was damn close...I was hit by a power 8 Scandal in the final days, ran out of money with a day or so left, Kerry won all the debates, the PV was more or less a tie, Kerry won almost all of the tossups by substantial margins, my ads weren't that good...but I still managed to win.

CA, CT and IN were all decided by less than 2 points.

Kerry won OK and KS and Powell won NY and CA?

Why do you people use dynamism?

Man, it sure is easy to beat Tom DeLay.

I just did this as Russ Feingold:

You make a map on the EV-calculator on this site. Then you right-click somewhere on the map, go to properties and copy the url. You insert it between img and /img in brackets and post. Smiley

In real life, what would people say are the theme issues for Kerry and Bush respectively?

My feelings so far:

Kerry:

Leadership-Kerry

Military Intervention-Attacking Bush

Public Health Care-Kerry

Least sure about the last issue, several could qualify here. Leadership is meant to be Vietnam, purple hearts etc.

Bush:

Leadership-Bush

Terrorism-Bush

Leadership-Attacking Kerry

Kerry's third main issue is bashing Bush over the economy, not really classifiable here. I'd go with Personal Tax he has the center-left position.

I'm getting mad at you Gustaf. Why can't you ever seem to win Minnesota?

Try the 2008 scenario A New Direction and run Hagel against Edwards if you want a close race. Can't get much closer than it usually does.

just played 2004 using Gustaf's set up, with Personal Tax as Kerry's third theme. This is what happened:



Thank Nader for Connecticut, he took 65,296 votes allowing Bush to win it by 119. Next closest state was Nevada, I took it by 1418 votes, with Nader getting 28362 and Badnarik getting 39098.

Feingold/Richardson sinks Pataki/Owens. Oh yeah:



Popular vote 52/47

closest state: Arizona (Pataki by 0.5%)

Interesting state: Washington. Was Pataki up by 7 at one point, voted for Feingold by 21. That scandal I unleashed on him the last week sure had an effect.

Off the 2020 scenario. As Gavin Newsom I won an electoral landslide but only 33% of the popular vote against Todd Staples, Matt Gonzalez, and Michael Badnarik:



Gonzalez = Green, Badnarik = gray

here's an interesting 1968.

the good news: I won
the bad news: I lost Minnesota

that's right, I lost Minnesota as HUMPHREY. Talk about a hollow victory.

More weirdness: look at Alaska and Hawaii. And Utah Smiley

I actually won as Carter in 1980! Guess I should thank Anderson for that power 9 scandal. Smiley . He hit Reagan with another power 6 scandal, but right afterwords I got hit with one later. Luckily mine was spun out after only one turn, and Reagan's continued for quite awhile. Then I drawed all the debates, and Reagan was sunk.



Carter 49 Reagan 44 Anderson 6

closet state: Pennsylvania. I took it by only 0.1%, less than 4000 votes. NJ was also fairly close (only 0.5% margin).

Now if only that was the actual result. Things would be so much better now. sigh...

I really need to install this game on my home comp.

My previous comp sucked ass and would freeze up if I ran it, so I installed it in my student files at school. I can only play it on the school computers then, but that's OK because I have to use for them a bunch of other things anyway. But it'd more convenient to have it on this one.

Dean (me) vs. Bush:



Bush: 283 EVs (50% PV)
Dean: 255 EVs (49% PV)

Weirdest #%^(ing map I ever saw.  I won Florida and Indiana while losing Illinois and New York.  I was also within 5 points of winning Kansas.

did you have dynamism on?

It's not that hard to alter scenarios you know, fixing 1972 shouldn't be too hard.
