  1. ^^ You can restart them, though. I'm just not sure if the ads still work or not.
  2. What is the result of running an ad in a state for more than 7 days? Reduced effectiveness? No effectiveness at all?

    I was thinking that it would be nice to have a little bit more control over how our candidates do in their debates. It might be cool if we could have sliders like our platform, where we choose which issues we will stress during the debates, and how much we attack the other candidates, or defend our own positions. Kind of like President Elect did.
  4. In my games, I find myself making very few policy speeches, mostly due to their high CP cost. Does anyone feel that they are worth it? Maybe their EP cost should be lowered to balance them out.
  5. Glossary Barnstorming A generalized activity that includes town hall meetings, stump speeches, mixing, and rallies. Battleground state A state where the top two candidates are relatively close. Charisma A candidate attribute that gives a bonus/penalty in debates, ads, and fundraising (a bonus if your charisma is above 3, a penalty if below 3). Command Points (CPs) CPs limit how much you can do in a turn. Certain activities don’t take Cps, in particular making/running ads. A candidate’s Leadership will increase/decrease the Cps available, as will a candidate’s party’s How Well Est
  6. I'm running Windows ME, and once I installed the updates, my files worked fine.

  7. There's lots of randomness, but there's lots of strategy in it, too. A lot like poker or a good CCG. There's enough strategy involved that you have to have a good plan, yet no matter what, a big scandal might break right before election time.
  8. When the move icon is selected, and a destination is chosen, you can also select activities while you move. Is there a penalty for doing both the same turn? Also, if you barnstorm, which state gets the bonus, the one you're leaving, or the one you're going to?
  9. That's what it was. I went and downloaded the updates, and now everything works fine. Thanks a lot.
  10. I can't get my help file to open. Could someone copy and post the game instructions?
  11. I like the Electoral College Without it, the last THREE Presidential Elections would have been decided by the House of Representatives, and possibly the next one, too. Either that, or we'd have a repeat of Florida 2000 every four years, in the form of runoff elections in states across the country. Also the electoral college forces candidates to do well nationally, instead of just racking up huge vote numbers in Texas or California. This helps prevent one state or region from being too powerful, which is what the founding fathers intended. The winner-take-all aspect of the EC is the main r
