1637 Massachusetts Election  

13 members have voted

  1. 1. Do you plan on downloading this election?

  2. 2. Why are you interested in playing this election?

    • I am interested in Massachusetts history
    • I am interested in colonial history
    • I long for the days when the separation of Church and State was barely existent.
    • I want to learn more about this time period through the game
    • I want to rewrite history by winning the election with a liberal (Henry Vane) or a more radically religious Puritan (Endicott).
    • I don't know why I am interested in the scenario, but I am.
    • I am not interested in this election
  3. 3. If you lived in 1636-1637, you would have probably voted for

    • Dep. Gov. John Winthrop -- moderate conservative, and the most powerful man in the colony since 1630.
    • Gov. Sir Henry Vane -- liberal incumbent governor who is much more of a Londoner than a Utopian puritan, and elected governor purely by his pedigree
    • Assist. Thomas Dudley - moderate conservative, and political rival of Winthrop, consistently the second fiddle trying to topple Winthrop
    • Assist. John Endicott - radical conservative, the fiery, militant leader of Salem

If you want to do a 1970's one I'd recommend you do 1977 as 1973 was heavily one-sided towards Abe Beame

You're probably right. I'm unlikely to do any NYC mayoral election anytime soon. I'm getting to the point that even doing scenarios I'm 200% excited about making is making me stressed out, because of all my other projects, work, etc. in my life. If I could get away with 4 hours of sleep, like I used to do regularly, I would be able to handle all sort of projects. I need to be really picky on the scenarios I decide to make alone. I will, however, help people make scenarios.

I remember in the original Ghostbusters movie (1982, I believe, or 1983), Egon Spangler says the neighbourhood around the shut-down old fire station they buy as a headquarters looks like a "demilitarized zone" (I believe referring to some footage of Berlin in the late '40's), as a reference to a lot of the urban decay in NYC at that time.

Yeah, I've walked by that in person a few times. It's in Tribeca on Verrick Street. Tribeca might be the costiliest zip code in Manhattan now (it's definitely top 3, and I think it's the most expensive). I didn't hang out in Tribeca very often. It's expensive and not that interesting to look at. It has great restaurants.

Same but Summer vacation comes up for me in half a week so I may have time to begin making it for you once I finish up the 3 elections I'm working on.
