Description

This is your chance to run for president in the 2008 presidential race, set in a turn-based strategy game.

Players are able to create their own character to run for office, or choose from a variety of real life candidates, including John McCain and Hillary Clinton, and many others. Tactics involve smearing the opponents, placing ads, picking your V.P., raising cash and buying headquarters across the United States. Players must decide what issues they want to focus their campaign on, as some issues will lose votes, and others will gain votes. All issues are real issues that the 2008 election had.

Not only can players play on the United States map and run for President of the U.S., but there are also fantasy maps to run for office on, including other planets.

Multiplayer lets players play against one other person. The two players will compete and run for office against each other.
