Likes:
I adore the history. I adore the U.S. map. I adore the cards with their powers, flavor text, and tough decisions. The theme shines to me as much as any game on my list. And I’ve even gotten to the point that I enjoy looking at my big hand of cards and think about a strategy. To all of my friends, I’ll play this anytime.


Dislikes:
The overpowering of the issues track. The lack of actual traveling your candidate pawn does. Fix those two things and it could be my #1 game.

Tidbit:
I’ve tried Twilight Struggle once and it’s certainly similar enough to spark some interest in me, but I’m much more about the U.S. election than the Cold War’s global scene.

Memorable Game:
Probably the ones with my wife and with

because they both just ended it after the debates (with neither of them wanting to finish the game). I imagine one year that could happen in a real election. Ha, ha.

Question:
If gameplay was identical, which theme would you prefer: U.S. Election or U.S./Russian Cold War?

Mechanism: Campaign/Battle Card Driven

Runner-up: Twilight Struggle

Although many would argue that Twilight Struggle is the better game, the time it takes to play can be nearly double that of 1960, putting it well outside my comfort zone.

Very good condition. Played twice from new.

This OOP game hurts to sell. But it was either this or Twilight Struggle. A terrific and climactic ending to a tense 90-min battle of wits.

Starting price: $65

This one. Played 8 times with my wife and the ratio is 7:1 to her.
But I love this game because it is the biggest and "most complicated" game she will frequently request and sit down to play.

16 April 2015

We learnt this game for the first time at the gaming club. The game play feels similar to Twilight Struggle as both are card driven and players can choose to play the event on the card or use the op points on the card for action.

Personally, I prefer Twilight Struggle. The event on the cards happens automatically if the cards belong to the opponents. Players need to manage their hand of cards and decide the sequence of card play to minimise the bad effects and further their position.

In 1960: The Making of the President, players need to have momentum token to activate event on opponent’s played card. If the opponent does not have any momentum token, it will become pretty straight forward to play the opponent’s card to get rid of them before the opponent receive any momentum token to activate the events. Because of this, we also see intense fight for the issues during the early rounds. Of course, this is only based on our first play of the game.
