Win the election

Win the election!

The fate of the nation is in your hands. Your goal is simple – win the Presidency.

How do you win the Presidency? Win enough Electoral College votes to win the election. You are responsible for all aspects of your candidate’s election strategy: planning and buying advertising, conducting fundraising, giving speeches, recruiting high-profile and grassroots supporters, and spinning news.

President Infinity is the closest thing there is to running a real campaign, and this series of games has been used by political institutes, campaigns, universities, and high-schools to gain insight into aspects of the campaigning process.

May I say how excellent this simulation seems to me to be.  As a Brit, I have enjoyed playing it and learnt a great deal already about political processes in general and the American process in particular. I have also learnt where all the 50 states are, and something about the politics of each!  And then there are glorious obscurities like the fact that those who live in the overseas areas like Puerto Rico can vote in the primaries but not in the general election (except as absentee voters). – R. Court, Derbyshire, England

Infinite Options

President Infinity Select Campaign Republicans

The 2016 campaign has over 40 candidates to choose from, and the Republican, Democratic,  Libertarian, and Green parties. The game includes 2016, 2012, 2008, 1980, 1972, 1968, and 1912 campaigns, and more are added on a regular basis. Start at different dates for primaries or the general election, with candidates who have declared they are running or are undecided.

The game comes with a fully featured Campaign Editor – modify or add candidates, endorsers, surrogates, parties, change percentages, and more – or even insert yourself and run for President!

First of all I want to say thank you for this incredible game and all of the amazing games you have created! I cannot say enough good things about President Infinity. I have spent countless hours planning, scheming, deliberating and working to get several different people into the White House and it just continues to be an outstandingly enjoyable experience. – Jason Hoeflich, Ohio

Candidates

A huge number of candidates to choose from.

Candidates have not only personal attributes (Leadership, Experience, Integrity, Issue Familiarity, and so on) but campaign attributes, which affect their campaign’s ability to respond to news stories, research electoral insights, gain a polling advantage, and more.

You can also select Vice-Presidential candidates, each with different attributes.

“I just wanted to jot a quick note praising your immensely entertaining product.” – Theron Roe, Eugene, Oregon

States and Strategy

president_infinity_strategy_screen_general_election_rubio

The U.S.A. is a big country, and a successful candidate must focus limited resources. Choose which states you will target, and decide how much of your candidate’s resources to expend pursuing each one. Choose where to barnstorm and hold rallies, give policy speeches, and raise funds.

What are the swing states? Will you target Florida, New Hampshire, Ohio, or somewhere else?

The 2016 campaign comes with accurate polling data for the real-world candidates, both in the general election and primaries.

“Your game is outstanding. I have run political campaigns, and am currently Editor in Chief for an online political journal. I live and breathe this stuff, and your game is by far the most realistic political game I have ever seen, much less played. Brilliant.” – Seton Motley, Editor in Chief, TexasInsider.org

Primaries

president_infinity_main_screen_primaries_rubio_500x

In addition to the general election, President Infinity includes the option to start in the primaries, running against all the major Republican or Democratic candidates, as well as the hypothetical ones. Who will lock up Florida in the Republican primaries – Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or Jeb Bush?

“Your game is quickly making me into a complete geek.” – Travis, North Carolina

Endorsers

endorsers

A universe of endorsers, national and state-by-state. Will that last minute endorsement in Iowa launch a wave of momentum? You can then turn endorsers into surrogates! They will then campaign for you after endorsing.

“AWESOME. This is a great game, I work in politics, and it’s fun to play a quick game on a break.” – Chris Mays, Sacramento, California

Barnstorming

Barnstorm, give speeches, fundraise to boost your campaign finances, and much more – you decide. Or perhaps it’s time to hold massive rallies to accommodate the thronging crowds and boost your reach?

“This is a great game, and the most realistic Presidential simulation game I’ve played, well done.” – Steve Schaumburg, Illinois, Political enthusiast

Platform

president_infinity_platform_hillary_clinton_500x

Establish and tweak your candidate’s key theme and beliefs on core issues. Your candidate can change the party’s platform, which will attract some voters while alienating others. While moving to the center can help attract voters, there is also a chance existing supporters will leave after a dramatic policy shift.

9.25 / 10 … This game is a must-have.” – PunditPress Review

Advertising

president_infinity_advertisements_detail_500x

Craft ads to target specific regions, and gain extra bonuses when you run them. Create ad campaigns to highlight your candidate’s campaign themes and platform. Better ads take more time and cost more money. The more they run, the more they cost. Carefully tailored advertising can build a campaign, but ineffective ads may waste valuable resources. Be careful – attack ads can tarnish opponents but can also backfire.

“I’d like to thank you guys, because I absolutely love it.” – Mike D., Los Angeles, CA

Footsoldiers, Command-and-Control, and Get-Out-the-Vote

president_infinity_electoral_screen_500x

Build up state-by-state command-and-control, and synergize it with your Footsoldiers to swamp your opponents’ Get Out the Vote operations in swing states!

“The most awesome political strategy game there is. What I love about President Infinity is that it allows you to tweak all aspects of the campaign in great detail. I particularly like that you can now court governors for their endorsement and then actually use them as surrogates. Moreover, there are now many ways to targeting specific states to fit your optimal electoral strategy. Because you can run your campaign in such detail you really need to have a well thought strategy, and for me that is what defines a good political simulation game. So kudos to 270soft for making such a terrific game!” – Lucas van Horck, The Netherlands

 Media and Spin

News stories can be spun to improve your candidate’s profile, for damage control, and to turn the heat up on an opponent – spin from the campaign or assign surrogates instead. From time to time, candidates are offered the chance to give interviews. These may help or hurt the campaign depending on attributes such as knowledge and charisma.

“I love the game; it’s awesome. I managed to run a Rubio/Sandoval ticket to the White House in 2016 against the Governor of New York. When Cruz is added to the game, I am going to run a Rubio/Cruz ticket – see how far that can go.” [Ed. note: Cruz added] – Josh Twitchell, Arizona

Polling

Tracking polls allow you to gauge public support and opinion on campaign issues. Positive poll numbers can help gain much-needed momentum and sway undecided voters. You can also gain insights into the electorate through polling, and use them to hone your ads or speeches.

“Hello, I just wanted to give you a quick thank you, as I thoroughly am enjoying it. Keep the games coming and I hope one day you decide to make these games available on Mac as well.” [Ed. note: now available for Mac and Windows] – Grant Smith

Scandals

You can dig up scandals on opponents or hire spies to infiltrate an enemy’s headquarters. Be careful! This strategy can backfire if caught.

“P.S. I love this sim especially after pursuing a PoliSci major in college. Hope to see more good work from you in the future. In my research, there is no better political election simulation on the market. The strength of the game is that by going to a day to day primary mode, it feels more like a real election process and gives the gamer many more options for game strategy. Again, well worth the wait for a quality sim.” – David Mog, Penrose, Colorado

Your Resources

Money

Almost everything in an election costs money. Run out, and your campaign will grind to a halt. Increasing the time spent fundraising will divert your candidate’s time from other aspects of the campaign, but will build up the campaign war chest.

Energy

Barnstorming, giving speeches and attending fundraisers deplete energy, which can only be restored by resting away from the campaign. Getting tired can lead to embarrassing gaffes.

Command Points

Command points are the strategic resources available on a day-to-day basis. They are replenished each turn, but are limited – there are never enough for all possible courses of action your campaign may wish to pursue. Making a policy speech, holding a fundraiser, spinning news stories and recruiting foot soldiers and crusaders all deplete your candidate’s precious command points. You must ensure the maximum political value for each command point you expend.

Political Points

Candidates have a fixed number of political points, which are used to tailor a campaign to particular political interests. These help gain endorsements, which in turn build momentum.

“Just wanted to let you know I love your game, and I hope it’s a big success! Looking forward to playing around with the update today!” – Stephen S., New York City, New York

Election Night

president_infinity_election_night

Watch election night as results are announced, and export the detailed results for review or sharing.

Campaign Editor

president_infinity_campaign_editor_500x

President Infinity contains a Campaign Editor, giving you the ability to modify campaigns, or create your own, including editing, adding, or removing issues, leaders, parties, endorsers, surrogates, and more.

I love this game and use it to demonstrate elections in my class. – Charlie Atwood, High School Humanities teacher, Kittanning, PA

Much More

… and more, including

  • Work to get on primary ballots if you’re not. Stymied by primary ballot rules which keep your candidate off the ballot in Virginia, say? Now you can change that.
  • Control over debates. Call out specific opponents in debates to stop their momentum, or boast about your own achievements.
  • Secured your party’s nomination? Pivot to the general election, including choosing your Veep running mate at any point up until the convention, who will then go out and Barnstorm, give Policy Speeches, Fundraise, and more.

You can order and receive the latest release version immediately (and then all subsequent updates as we move towards the election).
