2020 Board Game Idea


Recommended Posts

@Reagan04 @Hestia11 @vcczar @ThePotatoWalrus@Rodja

These are the cards that I created for a rough draft of the system. Please give some feedback or create additional cards. 

Drawing Phase:

Each player must draw one Action Card from the pile. These cards have varying affects, and may be played before or after the debate round depending on the card specifications. 
NOTICE: For the intention of doing this game digitally, there will be only 10 cards, each assigned a value of 1-36 and put into the random number generator. These tencards are as follows:

1: Sharp Critic. A Sharp Critic can make even a seasoned debater make a misstep. The criteria for a successful debate attack is lowered to a roll of three. 1-5
2. Silvertongue. A silvertongued candidate always knows what to say to appear on top. Automatically has two points added to their debate score. 6-10
3. Thick Skinned. A candidate with Thick Skin just rolls with the punches. One attack that would have been otherwise successful is now deflected with no impact on debate score. 11-13
4. Flipflopper. A Flipflopper can't be trusted to live up to his campaign promises. Lower an opponents support for one demographic in one state for one turn. 14-19
5. Nixon. A Grand Flipflopper can't be trusted to live up to his campaign promises, at all! Lower an opponents support for one demographic in ALL states for one turn. Only one can be used on a candidate per phase, all others are voided. 20-21.
6. Baby Kisser: There's no better way to drum up support than to act like you care! Increase a demographic's support in one state for one phase. 22-27
7. JFK: Well dressed and a winning smile, voters eat you up! Increase one demographics support in all states for one phase. Only one can affect a candidate per phase. 28-29
8: Principled. A Principled candidate has the trust of the voters to do exactly what he promised to do. Immune to action cards that would lower your demographic support in one state for one turn. 30-34
9: Reagan. The people trust you implicitly. Immune to action cards that would lower your demographic support in ALL states for one turn. 35
10: Coolidge. Keepin' it cool with Coolidge. Automatically negate any card played by any one other candidate this phase. 36

I haven't decided on the types of cards that I will have, but I will probably include them or some other sort of randomizing mechanism that impacts the game. It may be more event card based and players react to the events. I'm not sure yet, however. Thanks for the ideas. Noted and they may be used in the end.

Biden (through sheer campaign strength coming off from the debate) was able to carry Super Tuesday handily, winning the critical state of California in addition to AL, AR, CO, GA, TN, VA for a total of 7 states. Adding this to his only First Four win in South Carolina takes him to a total of 8 contest victories. He gains 2 points to use on 2 states for winning the most states as well as a victory in CA. O'Rourke manages a narrow win in his home state Texas and is thusly awarded 1 point to use on 2 states in the next contest , however losing Super Tuesday as the front runner results in losing -1 for all demographics in the next contest and as he has fallen behind in delegate count, loses -1 points which erases his point from winning Texas. As such, Biden is now the front runner, growing his point total to use to 3. Sanders gained the least amount of delegates on Super Tuesday which earns him a -1 on all demographics in the next contest and is encouraged to drop out. These totals are subject to change after the next debate.

Please post your move for your character in the debate

R-AS 10 Delegates
Cruz 6+2=8 (3 Delegates)
Trump 2+1=3 (1 Delegate)
Kasich 5+4=9 (4 Delegates)
Paul 4+1=5 (2 Delegates)
Candidate Before (Del.) Gain After Before (State) Gain After
Cruz 16 363 379 0 6 6
Kasich 76 267 343 2 3 5
Trump 27 135 162 2 2 4
Paul 14 75 89 0 2 2

Cruz takes the day in a narrower overall win as opposed to his Democratic counterparts. He wins his homestate of Texas which nets him a point as well as the states of AL, AR, GA, MN, and TN for a total of 6 contests won. He gains 2 points for this. Kasich wins the state of California which earns him a point however he also loses Super Tuesday and frontrunner status, which erases his point from CA and lands him with a -1 in all demographics for the next contest. Cruz becomes the frontrunner, landing him a 3rd point. Paul gained the least amount of delegates, giving him a -1 in all demographics for the next contest and he is encouraged to drop out. These totals are subject to change by the next Debate.

Up Next: Debate for DA, KS, LA, NE, ME, MI, MS, NoM Primaries

@Reagan04

I need to change how delegates are awarded. I won Texas but Biden still got more delegates in TX.

O’Rourke will stay in for one more primary phase, unless he wins it. He considered dropping out, but as he’s 2nd delegates, he will stay in.

I don't have any campaign points, so O'Rourke is just going to have to hope that the luck of the dice rolls his way.

Gillibrand will take a hit on Loyalists in DA and in NoM

 

Kasich will spend one point on Moderates in Michigan and one on Moderates in Maine

You need to take 1 more hit as Gillibrand. And one more point to be used for Kasich. Points work for 2 states.

Well she can't take that hit as Liberals are the only demographic in NoM and DA.

Depending on when @ThePotatoWalrus @Rodja provide their moves, I may be able to finish the primaries tonight, but we're likely looking at tomorrow morning.

If candidates wrap up the nomination before the convention, the game will automatically go to the convention. I have preliminary rules for the Convention on the doc. I'm still trying to figure out one aspect of it before it's ready.

So I take 3 hits?

Yes, choose 3 demographics and then 2 state choices for each of them. Basically you're reverse campaigning.
