How many people play with the fog of war option?


Recommended Posts

I always use Fog of War; it's much more exciting when a poll appears to show Bush on the verge of losing Texas or Kerry likewise in Massachusetts when it's just a blip.

It's far more interesting to see candidates pouring resources into a state where they wouldn't normally need to campaign much: makes more a better game!

Actually, here's one reason to use Fog of War:

It appears to confuse the AIs.

If you are behind, and have a concrete strategy for winning (e.g. George Wallace in '68 - I play it essentially as a repeat of the Carter 76 strategy), you want to confuse the other guys as much as possible.

Of course, they can order their own polls, but it'll run up $$$.
