My most unexpected result in a game, bar none.
Does anybody knows how to unlock different scenarios (like 1992, 2008, 1820, etc)? I remember in the past there was an option to pay for Premium, which would unlock these scenarios. Do somebody has some information about that?
Unfortanetly (and being optimistic) they'll probably keep developing the game (if they do it) only in mid-2021, year after election. I think the game could begin let us answer the debates questions too (like in the 1960 election which Nixon always get schooled or in 2016), just to be more imersible. This game has so much potentialThe Campaign trail used to give premium members access to a wider range of scenarios than those who played for free. Those without a premium account could only play 1896, 1968 and 2012.
Since then however, all scenarios have been made available for free, as the game designer is no longer interested in the project. It's a shame, because in my opinion, the simulator realistically captures the partisan lean of states in a way that a game like President infinity does not.
I'd be very interested in seeing an expanded set of scenarios myself. Maybe if enough members on this site are interested. 2004 would be a good place to start, or maybe updating the 2016 campaign.
i think the 1896 election could be more challenging for bryan if the game gave the option of mckinley run with teddy roosevelt as his running mate.. in fact, that would be op
Considering Roosevelt became famous for his actions in the Spanish American War him being a VP nominee in 1896 is highly implausiblei think the 1896 election could be more challenging for bryan if the game gave the option of mckinley run with teddy roosevelt as his running mate.. in fact, that would be op
Best game I've ever had as Bryan in 1896 on Normal Difficulty. https://www.americanhistoryusa.com/campaign-trail/game/1405749
Was only 95 votes off from winning Michigan, which would basically max out the plausible map for pick ups. Not 950 or 9500 votes. 95.
The next closest state (percentage wise) was Ohio which I won by 5000, followed by Maryland. Wisconsin is the next closest McKinley win, but that went 51.30 - 47.52, with him having around 17,000 more votes. A lot of the midwest was relatively close, but New York actually went relatively solidly for me somehow 50.0 - 48.4, (23,000 vote difference), so I likely would have one the contest even if a lot of the coinflip states went the other way by a few thousand votes.
#1, pick Claude Matthews as your running mate. Quite frankly I think that his values might have been entered in wrong, as he gives you a nice boost compared to the rest of the field.How did you do this BTW?
