1994 saw the Republicans gain control of the House for the first time since 1952. You now have the chance to change history or inflict a worse defeat for the Democrats. This has been built with the issues ported from vcczar’s 1996 Presidential election scenario
- Republican, Democrat and Libertarian candidates and the top performing ‘Independent’ in each seat.
- Official result adjusted for campaign (20% Undecideds subtracted)
- Candidate strengths (4 for speaker/chief whip, 3 for incumbents, 2 for main challengers, 1 for other minor challengers)
- Issues ported from vcczar’s 1996 Presidential election scenario
What is planned (other ideas welcome);
- Additional parties (those with over 50,000 votes)
- More surrogates
- Money (currently set at 2014 rates)
- State level turnout
1994 – House
I have done a quick mod of this scenario to edit the map to have the default background
1964 – United Kingdom – Map mod
There is now a second version which uses the default map and regions

The State of New Hampshire provided one of the closest races in the 2016 election with Hillary Clinton narrowly defeating Donald Trump. The results in Pennsylvania and Michigan meant that New Hampshire wasn’t as pivotal as it could have been.
Here you have an opportunity to battle 2016 out in New Hampshire;
Beta version – New Features;
Primaries for the GOP, Dems, Libertarian and Green (Delegate numbers are x10 from real life so the numbers provide more competition across the 10 counties, (GOP = 230 rather than only 23 across 10 counties.)
Endorsers – Newspaper interviewers added as endorsers. For those papers who endorsed candidates in more than one party these have been set as ‘Centre’. GOP or DEM only are set respectively as centre-right or centre-left. The Governor, Senators and Representatives have been added also.
The GOP seem overpowered when starting from the Primaries (I think is has something to do with the number of candidates in each primary, 8 GOP vs 2 DEM). For better results enabling more Democrats is a good idea. In order to counter the GOP bias issue, I have made all counties adhere to the default 2016 scenario for NH.
Feel free to suggest improvements and ways to counter the overpowered GOP.

The United Kingdom is voting in a historic referendum to decide whether they want to Leave or Remain in the European Union. With the vote on a knife-edge and no real data to predict the winner, everything is up for grabs.
The HQs of ‘Vote Leave’ and ‘Britain Stronger In’ are the main candidates but David Cameron is available as alternate ‘Remain’ leader, while Boris Johnson is the alternate ‘Leave’ leader.
If you fancy having a go with Nigel Farage and the Grassroots Out, they are available but start with 0% as they were not on the ballot and there is no polling data for them.
Polling data is taken from the Electoral Commission who are selectable as an observer.
All feedback is welcome 🙂
2016 – UK European Union membership referendum (Beta)
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.
2017 – United Kingdom (adjusted polling)
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.
2015 – UK Parliament (Localised to Northern Ireland)
A minor mod of s excellent expanded USA 2008 scenario with an new October 2007 start date and adding all party candidates as endorsers who now become available following their withdrawal in the primaries and are free to endorse the remaining candidates.
Happy campaigning 🙂
2008 – United States (Expanded)
Pennsylvania ended up becoming one of the most important states in the race to 270 for Donald Trump as he took the presidency. Here is your chance to relive the general election race in the Keystone State and not just with the final candidates as all default primary candidates are available also.
