2017 UK Election (adjusted polling)

I have done a few modifications to the percentages shift to make the official scenario closer to the real result (starting with only a small majority which the Conservatives can lose if they don’t campaign effectively.)

Changed are Corbyn’s charisma from 2 to 3 given his big rallies and I’ve added three new events.

1. Conservative social care plans unveiled – gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives

2. U-turn on the social care plans, gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives

3. Theresa May refuses to debate after Corbyn announces he will attend, gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives.

Israel 1996

After the Oslo Accors and the assassination of Yitzchak Rabin the 1996 Prime Minister election will test the religousness of the Israeli Public and how far they’ll go for peace.

2015 UK Parliamentary Election (Localised to Northern Ireland)

Northern Ireland has a number of distinct political parties reflecting the nationalist and unionist sides of the political divide. The province sends 18 MPs to Westminster and now you have the chance to decide who.

I have added a few extra interviewers, another endorser (The News Letter) and corrected a couple of polling percentages with unknown names updated to those declared in the results. The scenario uses the default 2015 issues so may not be the most localised and ads have been limited to 4 per player due to there only being 18 seats but any feedback is welcome.

1637 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Election

1637 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Election [Version 2.0]!!!

Download here: massachusetts-gubernatorial-1637 v.2

Version 2.0 is now released, which includes many events to add flavor to the campaign.

This election covers the 1637 Massachusetts election for governor, following the crucial events for that colony starting in July 1636. Major events include Anne Hutchinson’s Antinomian Controversy, the Pequot War, colonial expansion, the founding of Harvard, and much more.

Along with dozens of events, the scenario includes endorsers for every town. Endorsers include politicians, ministers and leading citizens in the town. I have listed many famous descendants of these endorsers in their descriptions.

Candidates

  • John Winthrop, the sitting deputy governor and former governor. Generally considered the leader of the Massachusetts Bay Colony by historians. In 1636, he find himself slightly out of favor, playing second-fiddle to a young nobleman recently from the home country.
  • Sir Henry Vane, the incumbent governor has shown his youth and inexperience while in office. Citizens are finding him to be all-too-liberal for this Puritan “utopia.”
  • Thomas Dudley, generally the second most important man in the colony, behind Winthrop. He has consistently been the political rival of Winthrop, but his popularity is at an all-time-low.
  • John Endicott, currently in disfavor for being too radical, even for Puritans. Endicott arrived in Massachusetts before Winthrop, Dudley and Vane, but has been unable to keep a grip on power, except in his home town of Salem.
  • Several what-if candidates are included such as future governors and other major figures, such as Simon Bradstreet, John Leverett, John Winthrop the Younger, Simon Willard and others.
  • I include a Simulation Party for anyone wishing to watch an election.

Hungary Primer Minister – 2014

The 2014 Hungarian parliamentary election took place on 6 April 2014. This parliamentary election was the 7th since the 1990 first multi-party election. The result was a victory for the Fidesz–KDNP alliance, preserving its two-thirds majority, with Viktor Orbán remaining Prime Minister. It was the first election under the new Constitution of Hungary which came into force on 1 January 2012. The new electoral law also entered into force that day. For the first time since Hungary’s transition to democracy, the election had a single round. The voters elected 199 MPs instead of the previous 386 lawmakers

Note that the scenario will be updated once MMP is added to a 270soft game

 

UK- 1997

After seventeen years in power, the Tories finally appear to be on their way out of office. Having won an unexpected victory in the 1992 General Election, Prime Minister John Major has had a second term marked by economic difficulties and bitter party infighting. Meanwhile, Labour have recovered from their defeat five years ago, and the death of their leader, John Smith, in 1994, to establish a comfortable lead in the polls under the wildly popular Tony Blair, who has rebranded the party to the centre as ‘New Labour’. Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats, once more led by Paddy Ashdown, are hoping to benefit from the collapse of the Conservatives to win their best result in the post war era. Can the Tories prevent a historic Labour landslide, or will Blair deal them a defeat that will cripple their chances of winning power for a generation?
