Bruce Fischer posted a topic in Election Play-by-PlayI have done several playthroughs so far, and have encountered a few things that irk me: They're either too broad like my two other 1788-2020 playthroughs (my fault for not fleshing them out entirely) or they're too confined to one time period or feature a (usually tyrannical) main candidate (my Hillary playthrough). NO LONGER! My goal with this playthrough is to go into a bit more detail (though I'm not writing a book, mind you) and flesh this one out a lot. I'll be doing not just elections and brief overviews of their victor's terms, but cabinets, Congressional results (though not individual races because that would be an absurd level of detail), and actual timelines of Presidential terms with major legislative accomplishments, etc. I also had a tendency to omit or at least diminish people I don't like (Andrew Jackson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, etc.) and blow up the importance of those I do like (John Quincy Adams, the Kennedys, Jimmy Carter, etc.). I will try not to do that this time around. Enjoy! P.S. I'll also do the Supreme Court when it's relevant.
I'm going to play through all 59 presidential elections (including 2020) and see what happens. In each election, I'll choose my favorite candidate and to play them. I will also make sure the candidates make sense and that the "story" is coherent and based on previous elections. Basically, I want this to be one big alternate history. Let's see what happens... Also this'll take a while, so to cut down on time it won't be as in-depth as the other scenarios I play through (e.g. the Empress Hillary Clinton scenario) List of Presidents and their Vice Presidents: (black = nonpartisan/independent, orange = Federalist, green = Democratic-Republican, blue = Democratic, pink = Whig, red = Republican, Purple = Reform) George Washington/John Adams (1789-1797) John Adams/Thomas Jefferson (Jefferson replaced by C.C.
