  1. I I am starting work on a scenario (I have been practicing/playing with it since we could make our own.) I would love feedback, collaboration, ideas, any events, advice on candidates/VP candidates. 2016 Presidential Election (A Normal One) Once again, Americans will go to the polls. In 2016, parties are facing both contested primaries. The polls show most want something in addition to a campaign on the issues. Will a dark horse candidate emerge sending a message to the dynasties on both sides? With the ending of the Obama years’ fast approaching will it be a Republican to occupy the Oval Office for the next four years or will the Democrats’ protect the Obama legacy. Factors: No Donald Trump (Headline: Trump Announces AGAIN he will not seek Presidency.) He will continue to make headlines from time to time. THIS IS JUST A THOUGHT to make things more unpredictable. What if Sec. Hillary Clinton dropped out right after Christmas, after another 'health scare' needing to spend time with her family. She drops out and then field is open. Biden and Sanders will lead. But could give others like O'Malley, Warner, and Hickenlooper, or others to jump in and come through the middle in some primary states. Beau Biden lives, and is running for Governor of Delaware. (Joe is proud.) Decides with Jill as a family to run for the White House one last time. Gov. Mitt Romney picked Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell as his running mate (the Romney-McDonnell ticket carried the state of Virginia in this scenario) Ted Cruz lost by less than a percent in the 2012 TX Senate Primary runoff, went into private sector. (David Dewhurst is the junior Senator from Texas) so he is of no relevance. The scandal that ruined the bright future of McDonnell never occurred in this alternate scenario. He wrote a NYT best-selling book after leaving office in 2013 and opted out of the urge to jump into the 2014 U.S. Senate race, even after the backing of friends and old running mates Ann and Mitt Romney. My thought is to make it as the electorate (in both primaries as well) would like a fresh face (FOR BOTH PARTIES, but still the Clinton-Bush's have the upper hand. This would mean challenging the frontrunners of Bob McDonnell (as former and popular VP nominee) and Fmr. Gov. Jeb Bush against a field of quality candidates. Candidates: Republican Candidates: (much smaller field than original) Fmr. Governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell (Have Bio) The frontrunner, easy to say, after all he was Mitt Romney’s running mate last election instantly becoming national figure in the country. Passing on a challenge to Senator Warner in 2014, he has stayed relevant. Can he learn from his mistakes of the past, or will he just not be able to connect with the American people? Fmr. Governor of Florida Jeb Bush U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Governor of Ohio John Kasich Fmr. Governor of Texas Rick Perry Democratic Candidates: (much larger field than original) Fmr. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (may drop out early/timed event announcing she must focus on her health for herself and her family) Vice President of the United States Joe Biden (may a report/leak come out that Biden was for the Bin Laden Raid come out) U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley U.S. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia Fmr. U.S. Senator Jim Webb of Virginia Governor of Colorado John Hickenlooper Just needing ideas and polling ideas. Any alternative event that sways things. Should I remove candidates, add candidates? It would be interesting. Feedback for a newbie on here please?

    2016 Multiplayer Game

    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

    Hey everyone, I'm Jeff from Cosmic Wombat Games, and I am funding Campaign Trail on Kickstarter. One of our backers pointed me to this forum and thought there might be some interest here. So I am giving you the information on the game. Thanks for checking it out! As mud-slinging political campaigns once again clamor for our attention, the new strategy board game, Campaign Trail, is launching its own campaign on Kickstarter, Sep 16 – Oct 9. After 4 years of touring the country's gaming conventions, holding photo ops with hardworking gamers everywhere, and collecting rave reviews, Campaign Trail is asking for your campaign contributions to raise funds for its first production run. Developed by Cosmic Wombat Games, Campaign Trail is a 2-6 player strategy game in which players are candidates competing to become the next President of the United States. Whether in teams with your running mate or one-on-one, it's up to you to sway the voting public in your favor using cards to advertise, campaign, host events, raise funds, register voters, travel, and debate the important issues facing the nation. The candidate that best manages their resources and connects with the public on key issues will win the presidency! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cosmicwombatgames/campaign-trail

    Poll for 2020 campaign

    This poll is for a 2020 campaign I'm working on. What category would you place the following potential GOP candidates in? (select one or more). I may have to split this in several polls since I can only do three at a time.

    Creating vice-leaders

    How does one create a new vice-leader for a copy of a candidate? I downloaded JohnnyK and Potato Walrus's latest 2016 campaign. I decided to put Ted Cruz into the NeverTrump party, but I can't figure out how to get Fiorina in the Vice-Leaders spot. I tried going into Republican, copying Fiorina, selecting "add as potential vice-leader", but that only created this copy within Republican, I can see no way of getting it to the NeverTrump party.

    Help with my campaign?

    I need help for my campaign because it crashes on startup and I have no idea why. I'm trying to do my country, I haven't followed a tutorial so maybe I'm doing it wrong, I'm sending what I have right now so someone can check it out. It's based on Chile in 1989 just after Pinochet. Not done yet, missing candidates and descriptions, but when I try to test the mod it crashes. Chile - 1989.7z

    Help Backing Up my Campaign

    Anthony has told me what to do, I just don't know how to carry that out. Would there be anyone out there willing to help me? This is what Anthony has told me to do on the Email. First, backup up campaign. Then, copy a scenario.xml file from an official campaign, such as 2016 to your campaign folder, overwriting the existing one. Open the newly copied scenario.xml file in an XML editor. The only thing you'll have to be careful of is the debates section, which contains party names and possibly candidate names. You're going to want to make sure those match parties or candidates in your campaign. Once you've done that, save the scenario.xml file. Then, open up the campaign in the President Infinity Editor, and modify the name, start date, and so on. I will email anyone the campaign if you're interested.

    Candidate Editor

    Hello! I'm new here, and I just wanted to start off by saying what a great concept and fun game you've put together! Thank you for that! I've been playing the demo a bit, but I have a couple questions until I fully commit to buying the product. How robust is the candidate/campaign editor? I plan to take this game on as more of a role-playing experience and would very much like to create my own candidate from the bottom up. I'd like to customize his personal and campaign stats, give him his own name and pic, assign him to either of the major parties, and truly feel like I have created my own little political monster. Thus, I'm hoping I don't have to take an existing candidate and just edit them. If so, I suppose I can deal with that so long as I get to change virtually anything I want to. Am I asking a bit much? Do underdogs stand a chance in this game? I ask this because, as Corey Booker (I love playing an underdog and will likely do the same on a Republican ticket), he starts off with basically 1% compared to Clinton's 35% or so. This is to be expected, but am I at that point just playing to see how many delegates I could wrangle in, or is it actually plausible for the Bookers and Sandovals to win? Although it'd be fun to see Clinton-Christie, Cruz-Biden sort of battles, I really would like to switch things up for the sake of variety and that "underdog" rush. Wordy way to ask the questions, I know. But these are two critical facets to me to consider before purchasing a game... especially given that I'm not a political wonk by any means. I'm quite the noob. Thanks y'all! Kevin
