President Elect:1988 Edition is an updated version of the original President Elect adding the campaign data for the upcoming (at the time) 1988 election. The game is a comprehensive computer simulation of a presidential campaign from Labor Day to election night. The game can be played by 3 players each assuming the role of campaign manager/candidate. The game proceeds through 9 weekly turns where the player decides how and where to concentrate their campaign efforts. Weekly polls are provided to give the players an idea on how they are doing. On election night the returns come in on a minute to minute basis until a winner is determined. The election night may be simulated in real time (2-6 hours) or the votes may be counted in 15 seconds. President Elect has seven historical scenarios (from 1960 to 1988) or a virtually unlimited number of hypothetical or ahistorical scenarios.
President Elect puts you in control of any US presidential campaign between 1960 - 1988, in either historical or ahistorical mode. The game is turn-based, and you must allocate "political action points" (PAP) for various actions. Harking perhaps to real politics, you allocate the percentages of time to spend on critizing your rival and dodging questions in a national debate-- without ever needing to state your platform An arguably "realistic" sim in this way.
In President Election you will have to run for President. This is the only game where this has been the goal in the game and I consider this game very unique because of this. You will of course have to decide on many different things regarding running a campaign like this.
Of course President Election also includes some famous names, all though not all names are actually for the real persons who was once running for president. The interface is not very nice to look at, but once you learn how the game works it's pretty easy to play around with.
