I have about 40 seats left to do. Its turning into a cool scenario. I've played it a few times and I've seen every party enter parliament. The Christian Heritage Party is definitely strong. I've kind of made it out to be similar to the UKIP. The Greens perform exceptionally as well.

The third parties should not be that strong- the Greens should have one or two at most, same with the independents.

Plus the Liberals should have a lot more seats...especially in the maritimes, quebec, and ontario.

Yeah, I still think that the NDP should be ahead though, to make this more interesting.

The NDP have no chance in many regions expect maybe in BC, Nova Scotia, Northern Ontario and some urban areas in Ontario and Manitoba. However, I think that the Liberal Party right now could maybe have in the next few years the same situation as the former Progressive Conservatives with only pocket of support in Toronto and Western Montreal. Also remember, that the relative strength of the Green Party is beginning to affect the NDP badly especially on NDP friendly demographics.

Plus the Liberals should have a lot more seats...especially in the maritimes, quebec, and ontario.

The Liberals are now at their lowest in the polls since 1867, especially at the advantage of the Conservatives and the Greens. Even in Quebec, the Conservatives are now higher than the Liberals and the Greens are now in the double digits in the polls in about every single region.

Please note, that except in a few inner city ridings, the NDP and Liberals in Alberta are not a factor at all, and this with a new libertarian party (Wildrose Alliance) which is now tied with the provincial PC in the latest provincial polls. So, I think that the second choice of most social conservatives will maybe be the CHP or with economic conservatives it will be the Libertarian Party or the PC Party. The Liberals are also way too strong in Manitoba as they only can win more than 2 seats if the NDP vote collapsed as in 1993.

I say give the NDP a good relationship with the Bloc Quebecois so that alliances can easily form. I want this election to be quite interesting

Possible with a left-wing/trade union leader like Duceppe as they have mainly the same issue positions. But this is impossible with a more centre-right leader like Lucien Bouchard as the NDP are the most centralist of all the federal parties. For them, education and health are like federal issues when the constitution says otherwise.

That woudl be interesting, but I still think that the non-"big 5" parties should have 2-3 seats total at maximum.

I'd change the starting seats to:

Conservative 150

Liberal 75

NDP 45

Bloc 35

Green 1

Independent 2

Others 0

GOP Progressive,

I basically like the idea of having third parties having a few seats each, because it makes the game interesting to play as those small parties, as that this is virtually no interest to play as the smaller parties.

Is 45 seats too high with a party with about 15% of the vote with the FPTP system?

Yes it is, unless that 15% nationally is regionally concentrated in a section of the country (in this case it'd have to be either Quebec or the West).
