Germany 1933 scenario


Recommended Posts

My dad bought this game a while ago now and i've just been given his computer for my room which made me play president forever.

Since i studied Germany for my exams, i have a knowledge of Germany in 1933 and was thinking it'd make a really good scenario for the game. I've seen all the scenario's available and they are all amazing.

Does anyone have a scenario for germany 33? Imagine it democracy vs hitler's nazi party beliefs. Would be really good!

If no one has made it is it easy enough to make? I know some of the main issues in Germany at the time and the people involved but how do you go about making this scenario? I've asked my dad if the game was sent with an instruction manual for this but he said he forgot.

Bill, there were two presidential elections in Germany in 1932, a four candidate one and then a run off with the top three, as Hindenburg did not win 50% in the first one.

If you want to do the Reichstag elections there were, I think, a total of 3 in 1932. PMF Uk might be a good engine for this.

I have some sources of data, but they don't go to the csontituency level. I've looked into this on the internet, and I think all the detailed election data is in German only.

That's why he'd translate the page. ^_^

Well, if you were to have a Germany 1933 scenario, it'd be better to use the real political parties, rather than "Democracy" vs the Nazis, since it was the election when the Nazis actually won control of the Reichstag, and it was a real election.

But the method used was actually a blindingly simple version of PR, with about 1 seat per 600,000 votes. No seats, no electoral divisions, no electoral college, nothing. Probably the simplest electoral system I've ever seen.

So while you could do it under the PMF UK model, it wouldn't actually reflect reality.

Right. That would be my approach. No regions.

I would recommend putting Hitler at Leadership 6, other candidates at 2. Unemployment as a huge issue where Socialists and Nazis compete.

Clearly Germans didn't view Hitler as PMish in '33. I think a leadership rating of 6 would be too high because it could easily bring results that are much higher than 37%. It's overkill.

Just my thoughts.  :)

I thought Leadership was the ability to get peopel fired up with speeches and promises and manipulation. Hitler was definitely good at that. The other parties were very uninspiring and 'status-quo'. You have to remember that there was around 25% unemployment. That can't be a 'normal' election.
