1912, 1968, 1972, 1980, 2008, 2012, and 2016. Pick any candidate from any party.
Third Party Challenge! Intro - During my Playthroughs as a third party, I have always stumbled over 2 Problems 1 - Money, and 2 - No Fair Starts. I have attempted to do third parties because Democrat or Republican, both parties are not very fun (for me) if you play without a hard primary. So if I am playing in 2016 and want a hard game I go with Libertarian, Green, or Bloomberg. (My Best Results respectively) Anyways after destroying elections for Republicans and Democrats alike, I decided that we need a switch-up in the Presidency. We need a Ross Perot, a Gary Johnson, a John Anderson in The White House. So now this challenge is for those who love the game as much as me and want to see this happen in real life also (or not). So the rules of this challenge and how it works. How it Works - The basic goal of this challenge is to win with the 10 top most populous states (CA 55, TX 38, FL 29, NY 29, PA 20, IL 20, OH 18, GA 16, MI 16, NC 15, and NJ 14) If you can get more, go right ahead. The goal of this challenge is to get as close (or get) these 10 states to win exactly 270 Electoral Votes. Please remember to keep track of the states you carry, you amount of votes, and who you were running as. (Pictures encouraged) I will attempt to do a score keeping tally, just to see who can get closest to that 10 state perfect 270 number. Remember this is not a competition, so please do not get upset if you score lower than another competitor. I hope to see many people try this, and here are some guidelines to help you win fairly . Rules/Guidelines - No Campaign Editing - I want to run this challenge as a fair and balanced game, to not only help improve skill, but to help the developers with third parties in the future. No Save Gaming - What this is, is when you autosave your game, then if you have a bad debate or just want your research to deploy you start over that turn to refurbish the next one. Now I am completely fine with this if you want to do it when playing the game for high scores or just for fun. But this is a special challenge so I'd like it to be auto refurbish free. Choose Candidates that would be well suited aganist each other in real life (General Only) - By this I mean don't have a really strong Republican vs. A really weak D. (or vice versa) Play For fun and don't get discouraged - Even if you don't win any states or even 1%, Just remember that those people that voted for you just made a Republican or Democrat cry a little bit inside. Scoring System - The Scoring System is still being worked out, but here is it currently. 5 Points for every state (Out of 50), 2.5 for every popular vote percent (Out of 100) a max of 750. Good Luck to all, and happy campaigning! -Bubbles
