A detail I'd like to suggest is a feature that will allow the user to save the electoral map result after each simulation. Maybe even how many states the parties visited and how frequent they went here and there. That is all the ideas I have in mind. It is a great game, I love playing it. It always gives me goosebumps when it happens that me and the computer fight for a battleground state. Like, just that, and California is coming back and forth until it reassuringly comes back to my arms.

Very enjoyable, but short and little replayability. I wish there was a longer version and let you play into presidency. My only gripe is when you decide what options you pick to advertise your party, you get 3 choices and its so obvious which is the right one it feels a little like a tick box I love the gameplay ans the way they've design it, shame its not very long
