  1. As a general reminder, you can stop the action to try and repeal the protective tariff at any time.
  2. You guessed 58 times and got 35 correct, for a score of 60 percent.
  3. I point to the 24 hour news cycle. That’s a LOT of time to fill, and yet almost none of it is spent talking about substance. At best, we get talking heads yelling over each other. The business model demands viewers and viewers demand conflict and so you’ve got CNN advertising political debates like they are literally wrestling matches, and almost NONE of it is remotely informative. They (and here I mean all tv news, with Fox being the most egregious but not at all alone) tell you how to feel about an issue, but not why.
  4. @mlcorcoran wins with a bid of 3 IP, which I have deducted. Action to him to play or discard one of his four cards, and also to take a bonus action if he would like.
  5. Half Life and Elder Scrolls were almost 20 years ago for me. But I’ve been playing Paradox games nonstop that whole time.
  6. @Leuser @swejie @vcczar @mlcorcoran Time to make your secret bids for an extra card and chance to take another action. I’ll give everyone until 6 pm, unless someone tells me they need more time.
  7. Schurz rolls a 3. Want to spend 1 IP? (Thanks for flagging about the number of houses. There’s plenty to go around right now. I’ll fix) Garfield rolls a 6!
  8. Both rolled a 1, not enough IP to buy the wins @Leuser
  9. Conkling rolls a 4. Success! McKinley rolls a 2. Want to spend 4 IP?
  10. Players expend Influence Points from their faction supplies and/or their Statesmen, but Influence on a Statesman may never be spent on behalf of another Statesman. Players can perform each option only once per turn: a. Make a Speech - spend 1 influence for your statesman to make a speech and roll a die. If roll + any additional influence you spend = 6, get a popularity point. B. Whip up support. Designate a statesman, spend 1 influence, and roll a die. If roll + any extra influence you spend = 4+, get a house. A house is a permanent +3 votes to that statesman for the rest of their lives — but If there are no houses available, you have to steal it from someone else. We start with @mlcorcoran
  11. The newly formed Cincinnati Union has officially endorsed @mlcorcoran Mark Hanna as a true patriot, loyalist, and man about town.
  12. @Leuser plays coalition building, getting 3 more votes until the next election.
  13. You guys are not going to BELIEVE how @swejie attorney John Kern spent his summer vacation!
  14. @vcczar plays Coalition Building, granting himself +3 votes until the next Presidential election.
  15. 270towin, polling average of states with third party polling. They use the most recent 5 polls in each state. With multiple polls coming out per state per day, things change rapidly. Hopefully this map will be outdated by tomorrow. But for now: not loving it.
  16. My philosophy all along has been that Biden will lose any state that he's not polling an average of at least +5% in. Previously, this was still projected to give Biden the win. But using that same rule with the latest batch of polls that came out today -- I have to move Nevada and PA to Trump. Fuck.
  17. Cards being distributed in the following order, by victory points + Popularity cubes. Lowest goes first. Ties are broken by fewest votes. @vcczar 3 @swejie 3 @Leuser 7 @mlcorcoran 12
  18. Thanks! Can you switch out Andrew Johnson for Alexander Stephens? I accidentally killed off Johnson when it was actually Stephens who died.
  19. @mlcorcoran if you get time, can you add the statesmen (including Johnson) to the faction sheet? Make sure popularity, job titles, etc align properly. I can't do it on my phone. If you don't get a chance, then I'll do it tonight. Thanks!
  20. @swejie adds Kern is currently underage (34 years old) so he won’t be available for appointments yet (house rule). But that presumably won’t be an issue under a Republican President anyway. He’ll be of age in 1883, right after the next election.
