Description

The game is about competing in the presidential election. Initially, you don't know anything about people's voting preferences. Your task is to choose your side in four different political values, including taxation, diversity, healthcare and gun control, and try to find the optimal route for your political strategy to win as many electoral votes as possible. You can change your mind at any point in the game in each value category. In the multiplayer mode, your opponent will do the same, and will compete of the same states than you. In the end, you'll know who won!

Instructions

The game works with the regular web browser and mouse.

  1. When the game starts, have a look at the various state's electoral vote counts by hovering over them. Bigger states have more impact on your success.
  2. Try to invest a bit of money on the different values you are basing your campaign on, and try to find the optimal route for your political strategy, then start pushing more money (far left or far right options) on the options that you believe bring most benefit to you.
  3. Your opponent will do the same, and will compete of the same states than you. Try to find patterns in how the different values affect voting behavior to beat your opponent!
  4. When the timer ends, it's the time of the election! Good luck on the outcome!
