  1. Maybe Leave.EU could be included as they were one of the prominent "leave" groups trying to get lead campaign designation.
  2. I almost wish I could use photoshop to cobble a poster together!
  3. I agree! I did wonder why a man dressed as a fish finger, of all things, was standing against Tim Farron. For anyone as poorly informed as myself, it was due to a twitter poll which suggested that the twitterati would trust a fish finger over Mr Farron: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3381600/tim-farron-will-have-to-defeat-a-giant-fish-finger-after-crowd-funding-campaign-raised-1500-for-joke-candidate-to-stand-against-him-in-snap-election/
  4. Lord Buckethead didn't quite manage as many votes as the UKIP candidate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maidenhead_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s Not a bad result, though . I believe that UK MEP's will still get their pensions, with Nigel Farage having been in the parliament for sometime. I've also seen him frequently on Fox news, which is presumably another source of income.
  5. I believe that "Purple Revolution" is just an updated version of "Flying Free." This review seems to agree: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-reviews/R3GBZR6ZMD0IJK/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=1849548633 . I read a couple of such reviews and so I decided not to buy it, given that I already had "Flying Free."
  6. I have a signed copy of "Flying Free" . It is an interesting insight into the goings on in UKIP and if you're interested in finding out more about Nigel Farage, from his perspective, then I'm sure you'd like it. I would advise that you get "Purple Revolution" which seems to be an update of "Flying Free" released in advance of the 2015 election.

    UK PMI Scenarios

    A good choice of scenario, which I'm throughly enjoying :). Just one small criticism, as a campaigner for UKIP Nigel Farage has a Henley barnstorming bonus despite there being no UKIP candidate in Henley.

    UK PMI Scenarios

    I've played through '83 a few times and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm sure that I'll find the '87 one enjoyable too. I might suggest making the Alliance leaders into one candidate and averaging out their stats, as Treasurer of the PC did in his scenarios for Prime Minister Forever. Thank you for taking the time to produce these scenarios and for sharing them :). As for future scenarios I would suggest 1979 as a good one as it would be in chronological order, which might mean less work for you. You might also be able to cannibalise parts of the scenario made for Prime Minister Forever, as you have acknowledged doing for the 1983 scenario.
  9. Were you planning adapting this to Forever or Infinity? I would suggest having the alternative leaders as the leaders of the campaigns which competed for designation, such as Arron Banks for Leave.eu. Here is a report naming some of the campaigns which competed for designation as the "lead campaign": http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36038672. The Electoral Commission "score-card" link within that link doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
  10. Is there likely to be an update of the UK version in the near future?
  11. The last government position Frank Dobson held was in 1999 (as Secretary of State for Health). He would be a better "alternative leader" for an early nineties campaign in my opinion.
  12. I would suggest that Prime Minister Infinity UK is a strong contender for the "ugly duckling" title- it is slow and fiddly, with only one campaign. I haven't bought Congress Infinity but an increased number of campaigns certainly wouldn't discourage me (or anyone else I'd imagine). Take my opinion with a pinch of salt, particularly as a non-owner of the game, but of all the campaigns you have proposed your German Reichstag scenario intrigues me the most.
  13. And if you feel that the process of making a large scenario is cumbersome, you could of course use maps from the "regional" scenarios to create a 2010 (or other) scenario that just plays around a region. It would presumably also have the effect of making gameplay quicker.
  14. No, I've never had contact with him. I found the campaign on the "campaigns" page and thought I'd mention it in the thread so that people who (like me) don't check the main website very often would notice it.
  15. I've been enjoying playing the following fictional campaign, not mentioned in this thread, released by Treasurer in December: http://campaigns.270soft.com/2015/12/02/um-al-mohajshahr-2010/
