1967 – Alberta v.2

Ernest Manning aims to lead his Social Credit party into an unprecedented ninth consecutive term in government. Can the Liberals, NDP, and transformed PCs – led by the charismatic Peter Lougheed – succeed in pushing Social Credit into minority status, or will they once again be crushed by the Social Credit machine which has dominated Alberta since 1935?

v.2 – Very small update with some amended surrogate stats/descriptions.

2009 – Germany (Popular Vote only)

Germany has had a bumpy ride through the world economic crisis, but citizens are mostly satisfied with Chancellor Merkel’s handling of the crisis. Yet the Grand Coalition of CDU/CSU and SPD is unwilling to continue. Parties are searching for controversial issues to fight it out. Merkel seeks to keep power with a new partner. But with an established five-party system, coalition prospects are unsafe at any time. Will the campaign end in a grand surprise?

This scenario is the 2009 Chancellor Forever campaign remade for the infinity engine. Although the hybrid electoral system is not implemented in the engine, I have updated the scenario so we have a playable base campaign with is easily amendable should the Hare-Niemayer system come to the infinity engines.

Saskatchewan – 1944

With Canada in the midst of World War II, the Liberals extended their term to six years to provide ‘stability’. However, an economy that never recovered from the Depression and poor farming conditions have swung voters towards a young minister with bold new ideas. Can Tommy Douglas take the CCF into power and into history as the first socialist government in North America?

Original scenario by SaskGuy.

UPDATE: A wonk edition with updated map (with more regions), endorsers and some corrections was added.

1986 – Alberta

Premier Don Getty seeks his first mandate from Alberta voters. The New Democrats under Ray Martin have steadily risen in the polls due to Getty’s unpopularity. Anything less than Lougheed’s massive majority will be seen as a failure for Getty. Faced with high unemployment and low oil prices, can Don Getty maintain Lougheed’s string of massive majorities?

1989 – Alberta

Premier Don Getty has called a snap election less than 3 years into his term. The New Democrats under Ray Martin and the Liberals under Laurence Decore have steadily risen in the polls. Faced with an economic recession, high unemployment, failing oil prices, large deficits and failed government-funded companies, can Don Getty maintain his majority?
