Good game, educational, and pretty good graphics. The only thing is once you get the hang of it, your basically unbeatable. To make it more challenging I make it to where I cant flip states over 10 electoral votes. Also sometimes AI get too fixed on one state and spend like 4 weeks trying to get it when I clearly just keep negating there progress. My favorite election game, just would like it a little harder.

Its a good game, but there's very little replayability, as once you win once, you don't have anything else to do. It would be nice if you could maybe plays a the president, or transfer your data to another game to continue your presidency, and also would be cool if you had risk moves that maybe would be improving your happiness but you are at risk of being revealed as fraud. Also, the AI is terrible. Sometimes I have seen it go to a state that is secure to campaign. Oh well, still a fun game

Good game, designed fine. Only problem is that the AI loves Alabama and Illinois for some reason? They campaign over and over again in those 2 states. Makes the game pretty easy because instead of challenging you in the states that are worth a lot of points, they let you have them in favor of those 2 states. Also, it's really easy to click the wrong state and end up fundraising or campaigning in a state you didn't mean to
