Thank you @upandaway game creator Mr. Heli for pointing out, I mixed up Madison's and Monroe's ability scores. 

@Actinguy I have corrected the spreadsheet. Apologies for the oversight!

 

@Leuser I have no objection to letting Tariff 2 pass as-is given the mix up. Monroe does have 1 statesman IP if players feel it should be spent to match the Tariff 2 difficulty.

@Actinguy you're our moderator, what do you feel is most appropriate?

The most popular liberal in 1804 is James Monroe with 9 total popularity. He has 1 Black Ring, which gets removed if he declines the party's nomination. If he runs for office and loses, he earns a 2nd Black Ring, barring him from ever running for President again no matter how popular he is with his party.

The most popular conservative in 1804 is President Oliver Ellsworth, tied with Alexander Hamilton with 7 total popularity and winning the tie breaker as the elder statesman. If he declines his party's nomination, or runs for office and loses, he automatically retires from the game.

Both men belong to @Leuser's faction. Leuser let us know the decisions of both Monroe and Ellsworth regarding their party nominations.

 

The liberal runner-up for nomination is William H. Crawford @Shamilton and the conservative runner-up for nomination is Alexander Hamilton @Agent B. If the front-runner declines nomination, the runner-up is obligated to run and cannot decline.

Ellsworth will accept the nomination. Play to Liberal party leader

Monroe accepts the nomination.

Ellsworth selects Rufus King.

Rufus King accepts.

Monroe selects Madison.

Madison accepts.

Monroe to Maryland. Madison to Maryland. Ellsworth to NY, NY locked. King to PA. Monroe to PA, PA locked. Madison to DE. King to NE. Monroe to NJ. Madison to NJ. King is locked in. Monroe and Madison both get all southern states.

Monroe wins with 92, Madison has 77 for the VP nod. Ellsworth firmly falls in last place, which is quite fitting, as he was not even on the radar for selection in the last election. Ellsworth is now retired.

Congrats to President Monroe on a masterful campaign!

Next phase @Actinguy

Spreadsheet is updated with the following:

  • Ex-President Ellsworth retires, putting @Leuser on the scoreboard with 5 Victory Points
  • +3 Popularity to President Elect Monroe
  • +1 Popularity to Veep Elect Madison
  • +1 IP to every Faction
  • +1 IP to Liberal Party Leader and President-Elect James Monroe
  • +1 IP to Conservative Party Leader Alexander Hamilton
  • +1 IP to Hamilton per his statesman card
  • +1 IP to Aaron Burr per his statesman card

Party Leaders, you each have two newspapers in the Stage 1 box. You can choose to cash in both, one, or none for +1 Public Support for your party, each

@Leuser does President-Elect Monroe wish to cash in any Liberal papers for public support?

@Agent B does Federalist party leader Hamilton wish to cash in any Conservative papers for public support?

Tip: when you get to Generation II, be sure to remember to shuffle the Generation I discards back into the deck. Seems like this was omitted last time, causing statesmen to appear earlier than necessary.

Oh!  I thought that was just a problem caused by us kicking off the civil war generations too early.  Had no idea the discards get shuffled back in.  Thanks!

So any failed / ignored issues get reshuffled back in, correct? Even if their "Failed/Ignored" instructions don't explicitly say "Reshuffle Into Next Deck". 

No, I believe he's talking about the cards that get dealt to you in the private messages.
