  1. so I am creating a west wing scenario and I will document results of all my playthroughs here. Here are playable candidates: Republicans Glenn Allen Walken Don Butler Arnold Vinick Mike Reed Darren Gibson Robert Ritchie (what if) Steven Allard Ray Sullivan (what if) Democrats: John Hoynes Bob Russell Matt Santos Eric Baker (what if) Howard Stackhouse Ricky Rafferty Wendell Tripplehorn (All 7 Dwarves) Not sure when my scenario will be done but if you guys want to download it I will make it downloadable.
  2. Hey guys so this is a 2008 scenario from @vcczar (special thank you for making the scenario) Story 2001-2007 saw a great financial boom, President Pataki cut taxes and balanced the budget every year he has been president. But this came at a cost, the war on terror has exploded the deficit. As a Social liberal Pataki made Same Sex Marriage legal, as well as increased the funding for abortion clinics a bargaining chip he traded masterfully for spending cuts and border security. While many on the left respect Pataki for his more left wing stance on social issues and harsher gun control measures, they still were not happy about the "dire" economic state of the country. Conservatives, equally infuriated with the deficit and also the disgraceful social state of the country praise Pataki for 2 things, his tighter measures at the boarder and the way he masterfully has handled the war on terror. Hoping to right Orin Hatch's convention failure conservatives rally behind ultra conservative Secretary of state Dick Cheney, Representatives Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter were also fast rising stars within the party. Since Christine Todd Whitman declined to run and refused to endorse before candidates were finalized. In the Democratic party, rising star Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton, were less vocal critics of Pataki taking victories on social issues and stricter gun laws as victories. Progressive Senator Bernie Sanders who ran in 2000, acknowledged the victories on social issues and praised Pataki for that, but he slammed him visciously on his failures on healthcare and dealing with the tuition crisis college students were dealing with. Senator John Mccain, Businessman Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush are also rumored to run for President. That is the story I will post candidates tomorow.

(Pick more than 1) Candidates still in the race George Pataki (popular vote front runner) (raised most money $67 Million) Elizabeth Dole (won the most delegates so far in the game, with a southern strategy) Dan Quayle (has the $$$ to stay in with Pataki to the bitter end) John Mccain (low on money, but a very strong showing from the Arizona Sen) Withdrawn with Delegates Bob Smith (won NH, has 17 delegates) withdrew January George Bush (won only DE, but has 47 Delegates) withdrew February Orrin Hatch (won UT, IA, NV, GU and has 107 Delegates) withdrew in March Withdrew before Primaries Mr. Allan Keyes (Endorsed Hatch) Rep.

    The Perfect 2020 Simulation

    OCTOBER Potential Republican Candidates - Trump (duh), Cruz, Kasich, Corker, Sasse, Flake Hypothetical Poll (If All Run) Trump - 36 Cruz - 10 Kasich - 10 Other - 3 Undecided - 40 Potential Democratic Candidates - Biden, Sanders, Harris, Gillibrand, Brown, Booker, McAuliffe, Patrick, Klobuchar, Hickenlooper, Edwards, Gabbard, Chafee, Bullock, Kerry, Steyer, Garcetti, O'Malley, Delaney Hypothetical Poll (If All Run) Biden - 14 Sanders - 10 Harris - 8 Booker - 7 Gillibrand - 4 McAuliffe - 3 Kerry - 3 Steyer - 3 Other - 9 Undecided - 40 General Election Democrat - 31 Republican - 29 Undecided - 40 Also of note, the Libertarian candidate is Adam Kokesh, and the Green candidate is Jill Stein, and both are polling at less than a half percent right now. AND SO IT BEGINS I am using VCCzar's 2020 mod Oct 3 - Paul Ryan admits Obamacare will never be repealed Oct 6 - Terrorism attacks in Africa Oct 7 - Graham calls on Trump to intervene in Africa Oct 8 - Dems split on Africa intervention & Trump tweets that he "won't pull a Bush" Oct 11 - Carter Page indicted Oct 12 - House Dems (majority now) call for impeachment, Trump calls it a witch hunt Oct 13 - 4/5 potential R candidates (Corker, Kasich, Flake, Sasse, not Cruz) call for impeachment Oct 15 - Biden wins Dem Debate, Klobuchar & Sanders also with good showings. Delaney only negative score Oct 16 - Trump calls renegade R's "traitors" Oct 21 - Report: Dems to schedule impeachment hearing Oct 23 - Putin visits White House

    Game Improvements

    @admin_270 I have a way to make the game a lot more complicated Strategically, add each states Counties to the game, it adds even more strategy for the primaries. Makes you break it down farther by planning your strategy based on the counties instead. New Hampshire for Example, could be really close between 3 candidates and one of them wins by visiting Coos County a few more times than everyone else.... Or PA for example could come down to 3 small counties in the middle of the state that no one anticipated would be important.

    Game Improvements

    I would like to see political operatives with special "abilities" added to the game. An example. Every campaign gets a Treasurer and Campaign manager Campaign manager gives a 100% accurate poll in the campaign HQ located in the homsestate, not a moveable operative. Treasurer decreases the cost of ads in the homestate, not a moveable operative Operatives that can be hired and paid weekly. Communications director- increases ad power in state where communications director is deployed. Field Director- decreases CPs to build organizational strength and create foot soldiers. Fundraiser- increases $ amount at a fund raiser by 15% (most expenive operative) Press secaratary- gives +2 spin to the campaign Black operative- Neutralizes opponent operative in target state (1 use then vanishes) Consultant- decreases the amount of PiPs needed to win endorsement, CPs get +4 endorsement points instead of 2 in state they are deployed in. May be over thinking this. But I think it would add more strategy to a game I already win with either party every time on the hardest difficulty.

I dont know who ran against Arnold Vinick and Glenn Allen Walken I know know that Rob Russel, Matt Santos and John Hoynes Ran. I dont know who else. Stackhouse? Any help would be hot.

    2004 Scenario

    Timeline..... June 2003 George W Bush announces he will be running for Re-election. July 2003 Sitting Governor of Rhode Island Lincoln Chafee, announces that he plans to callenge Geoege W Bush for President. August Conservative Activist and Journalist Patrick Buchanon pulls the far right together and announces a bid for President in Virginia Late August In a surprising turn, conservatives fearing Buchanon would be dubbed a Racist by those on the left, nudged Businessman from Tenessee, Herman Cain to run, he made his announcment on August 27th. September A wing of Republican senators weary of George Bush's foreign policy, fearing destabilization of the middle East, courted Colin Powell to run for president, in an effort to put an end to the War on Terror. He announced his bid in New York on September 11. Follow....this should be interesting....

    2000 Scenario

    I want to do a 2008 scenario and to have someone Narrate what is happening. We can even talk via skype. Ir I can stream the game on twitch and you can do weekly or monthy posts as if you are a journalist sent to cover everything. Would anyone be interested in being the journalist? @Reagan04 @jvikings1 @ThePotatoWalrus @Patine @CalebsParadox @Conservative Elector 2 If we can get 1 conaervative media guy and 1 liberal reporter that is acceptable or one that is just truly unbiased.
  19. in my experience with the game, things like funding and spinning news articles dont matter much. In fact, I won the 2008 Scenario with Tom Tancredo, I spent 23 million in the primaries, had 6 million left, and took the block grant for the primaries. Wound up beating Obama to become president. here is how I did it. 1. Time is the key Remember Time is the most valuable commodity, anyone can win the '08 Scenario with MCcain or Rudi, or Romney, and you can start 3 weeks from the first primary and still be able to win. I selected the scenario that allowed me the longest time. That time I spent half of each week, Raising money, and doing barnstormings and rallies. This got me a launchpad. for Step 2. 2. Common Sense Campaigning Dont spend any money in states you cant win. For example, in the '08 Scenario, John MCCain almost always wins Arizona. I have played the '08 scenario a dozen times and no matter how hard I campaign in Arizona, MCcain usually wins. so I say, dont bother, Do it in states that are winnable, for me, that was Illinois, the Midwest, Wisconsin, and the territories, the only "big" state I won with Tancredo was Illinois. I won enough of the other states to secure the nomination at the convention floor. A nomination, is a nomination, even from a brokered convention. I used most of my money in the mid west states, and Illinois and Wisconsin. And Remember in states you cant win you can campaign for free with Barnstorms, and Rallies..... 3. Winning Endorsements. Endorsements lead to momentum. Momentum is important.. It helps generate positive polling, and the more solid polling you have the more funding you can generate from those states, or so it seems. This may not Actually be a fact, but it seems in a state where you have momentum and semi-favorable polling on your side you generate more money for funding. 4. Ads I ran newspaper ads leading up to the primaries and got TV ads a week before each one and ran them, I always kept the campaign positive, and that strategy worked. I followed the Reagan rule, thall shalt, not attack thy fellow Republican. Hope these Help.

    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.

    2000-20012

    This is where i will do a custom 2000 election scenario and go all the way till 2012. And the story will arc. Which means that if John McCain wins the white house in 2000 he will be ommitted from the 2008 scenario....stay tuned.
