  1. I've recently come into a good bit of free time, so I have a proposition for everyone here, the more the merrier and I'm certainly not opposed to as many as 10-12 people. What I'm proposing is a forum wide, actual President Infinity multiplayer game handled by myself. We would be playing the 2016 election and starting at either the first or default start date. Ideally we will have candidates claimed in both major parties, but doesn't the idea of taking down another real person for the nomination just sound so amazing? I will be narrating on the events and coming up with story lines for how the game progresses, reporting the weekly news as it comes out and creating those fancy result images for the primaries as they roll in. There's been plenty of ideas for different ways to handle multiplayer at the moment, but looking back at an old thread from 2007 (that @Patine was involved in) I found an idea that actually looked pretty feasible if we have people up for it. Essentially the idea is that the each player sends the GM a queue of their actions for the week. If people actually sign up for this, I'm open to either messages on this account, a separate account for GMing, or email, whatever is best for players. An example queue would look like this: Campaign Actions: Campaign enhancing: States to focus on: Days of rest: Endorsers/surrogates: Then it could be filled in as, Campaign Actions: Rally x3, climate speech x1, debate prep x2, issue knowledge x2 Campaign enhancing: Footsoldiers in IA States to focus on: IA and NH Days of rest: 2 Endorsers/surrogates: CP to McCain Here is a list of all politicians in each party that I will be updating as they are claimed, so please claim quickly if you have someone in mind you really want! Republicans: Mr. Donald J Trump (NY) UNCLAIMED Default On Gov. Jeb Bush (FL) UNCLAIMED Default On Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) Claimed by @Reagan04 Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) UNCLAIMED Default On Gov. John Kasich (OH) Claimed by @Kingthero Sen. Rand Paul (KY) Claimed by @TeamEhmling Gov. Michael Bloomberg (NY) Claimed by @NYrepublican Gov. Chris Christie (NJ) UNCLAIMED Default On Gov. Mike Huckabee (AR) UNCLAIMED Default Off Mrs. Carly Fiorina (SC) UNCLAIMED Default Off Mr. Ben Carson (MI) UNCLAIMED Default Off Sen. Rick Santorum (PA) UNCLAIMED Default Off Gov. Bobby Jindal (LA) UNCLAIMED Default Off Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) UNCLAIMED Default Off Democrats: Sec. Hillary Clinton (NY) Claimed by @michaelsdiamonds Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) Claimed by @Sami Gov. Martin O'Malley (MD) UNCLAIMED Default On Sen. Jim Webb (VA) UNCLAIMED Default On Vice President Joe Biden (DE) UNCLAIMED Default Off If you have any interest in this at all, please sign up! The more people we get on board the better, as we could end up with a very skilled and crowded field and make for one of the most interesting campaigns we've had yet EDIT: We are officially going through with this! With 3 Republicans and 2 Democrats at this current time, we have an actual field, but the more the better! Even if you can commit as little as 5 minutes of your time a day, that's more than enough for a queue for your weeks actions. EDIT 2: We now have 4 Republicans and 2 Democrats! @MysteryKnight @Sanser2016@TeamEhmling@jdm06ltd@JDrakeify @mz452 @The DM @Kingthero @QuickHead555 @chunkbuster11 @Bjornhattan @HomosexualSocialist @willpaddyg @daons @LegolasRedbard @Prussian1871 @wolves @SirLagsalott @michaelsdiamonds @victorraiders @Patine @Falcon @jnewt @President Garrett Walker @Reagan04 @Conservative Elector 2 @SeanFKennedy @vcczar @jvikings1 @harveyrayson2 @lizarraba @TheMiddlePolitical @MrPrez @msc123123 @NYrepublican @RI Democrat @servo75 @Presidentinsertname @ThePotatoWalrus @Sunnymentoaddict @TheLiberalKitten @Quebecois @avatarmushi @Sami
  2. Thinking of adding Kasich and Sanders as 3rd party options to defeat Clinton and Trump in the general. Would you say a 10-18% share of the vote would be fair for them seeing it would be the two most popular candidates that ran against the two most unpopular?
  3. so close XD yet so far. by one electoral vote LOL
  4. So, I'm very interested in starting up a project to create some of the swing Senate elections for 2016, particularly New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. I have seen/played the Nevada and Arizona scenarios and really enjoyed them, however, I've only ever made scenarios with the general election map, and they were for my eyes only. I'd really appreciate feedback/pointers as I get this started!
  5. Does Sanders - a socialist, Independent Senator from Vermont - have the grass-roots support to propel a bid and take the Democratic nomination - and then the Presidency? Hopefully, if I play the cards correctly. Wish me luck everyone and I shall keep you informed along the way. Note: I changed Sanders Platform with the campaign editor to my political views, I also will be playing on Hard, I'll post the platform soon. Should I update you on a day to day basis or a weekly basis? Please feel free to comment and tell who you are rooting for, even if it is for my opponent, also feel free to just have a discussion on this scenario as it plays out. Starting date: June 30th 2015 Now for the candidates: GOP: Jeb Bush Donald Trump Rand Paul Ben Carson Scott Walker Mike Huckabee Marco Rubio Ted Cruz Chris Christie Bobby Jindal Carly Fiorina Rick Perry Rick Santorum Lindsey Graham John Kasich George Pataki Jim Gilmore Democrats: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders Martin O'Malley Libertarians: Gary Johnson Austin Petersen John McAfee Darryl Perry Marc Allan Fieldman Kevin Mcormick Greens: Jill Stein Bill Kerml Sedinam Curry Darryl Cherney Kent Mesplay
  6. Seeing Kasich come in second in NH i'm going to play as Kasich starting October 1st.
  7. Second Vote!
  8. Vote your choices. I want to try this weekly and to start a poll average,
  9. I just recently upgraded from P4E2016 to PI and have tried playing the first few months of the Democratic Primary as Biden, and I have a few questions/comments: (1) I switched off Hillary and a few others, figuring the campaign would be pretty boring otherwise, and left Warner and Hickenlooper as "not seeking." Neither of them have entered the campaign, but the polls continue to list them and Warner always comes up with something like -100% chance of withdrawal if I try to make an offer to him. This has continued even after the states have begun voting. Is there a way to toggle the polls so they only display the candidates who are actually running? (2) Is there a date upon which everyone makes a final decision? IRL, I don't think anyone would still be included in polls or otherwise still be viewed as a possible candidate if they don't declare before the first few primaries. (3) Andrew Cuomo consistently seems to get a much better result than the polls would suggest, including in states where I have the daily tracking polling turned on. Has anyone else noticed results like this? Is the idea that someone gobbles up all the support that otherwise would have gone to undecided or not seeking candidates? (4) Two undecided Republican candidates, Perry and Thune, have a delegate each so far - is this a bug?
