LOVE this game. I have long been interested in the entire Kennedy story. This was my first "wooden blocks" game and it couldn't have been a bigger hit for me. Very nice 2 player strategy game with a great theme.

Current Preorders: 703 (+22) 6 months on P500

Preorder Price (List Price): $59 ($85)

Designers: Jason Matthews and Leonhard

Player count: 2 players

Winner of the 2008 International Gamer Awards best two-player strategy game and nominated for numerous other awards, 1960: Making of the President is widely recognized as the best U.S. presidential election game ever published. Of course, the inspiration for this design derives from GMT's blockbuster card-driven game, Twilight Struggle. So we are pleased to announce that 1960 is coming home to GMT in an all-new edition, just in time for you to argue with your uncle over the 2016 presidential elections.
The GMT edition of 1960: Making of the President will benefit from the years of suggestions, variants and clarifications that have emerged from game play since the game was first published. However, this will fundamentally be the same great game that players already know and love.
Components:
• 1 mounted map board
• 50 State seal cardboard discs
• 12 double sided momentum discs
• 3 double sided issue tiles
• 2 candidate tokens
• 2 cubes for phase track and turn track
• "political capital" draw bag
• 75 red cubes
• 75 blue cubes
• 91 campaign cards
• 2 candidate cards
• 16 endorsement cards
• 1 debate board
• 1 Rulebook

Game Link: http://www.gmtgames.com/p-574-1960-the-making-of-the-preside...

Comments:
I’m really curious to see if the public perception will change regarding this game once it’s part of the GMT stable.

Due to my interest in the American election, I was really in the mood to play this again. Based on some comments in a thread about solo-ing this I created my own quick little system:

I played Kennedy, my 'system' played Nixon. The rules where as follows:

+ Kennedy plays normally, just like when I would be playing a real opponent.

+ Nixon draws a hand of cards like normal, but when it is his turn he only plays the top card. I'll have to use my best estimate whether or not to play the event or use for CP / advertising etc.

+ If Nixon is eligible to use a Momentum token to trigger an event on Kennedy's card I use the following rules: If triggering the event would result in getting the Momentum token back (for instance the Gathering Momentum cards) Nixon will always do it. Otherwise, if the effect of the event would be positive: roll a d6: If roll + amount of available Momentum tokens > cards in hand of Kennedy -> play it.

+ Last card of Nixon each round (or last 2 in the last 2 rounds) are added to the Campaign Strategy unseen.

+ Debates: Play the top card of the Campaign Strategy deck. If an illegal card is found, then draw a new one.

+ To make it more difficult for Kennedy, I ruled that after every round Nixon got to draw 2 random cards. The states indicated by these cards each got 1 extra influence for Nixon.

I enjoyed myself playing this system, but it is far from perfect. Had a lot of fun playing 1960 again though. It had been a while. Kennedy won easily, which was more a function of the system being too easy than me playing well.

thumbsup Played 1960!!

thumbsdown System needs working, you still need to decide for Nixon what to do with a card, so it is still quite like playing two-handed.

thumbsdown The debate system really needs reworking

thumbsup I think it would be possible to create a flowchart for Nixon, probably need to help him a little bit with things like added value for CP's, more random added influence at the end of the game.

thumbsup You can switch Kennedy and Nixon if you're feeling more tricky

Great weekend of gaming as my friend Roe was visiting from out of town. The bedrock of our friendship is playing games and talking about the woes of our local sports teams, so it was great to see him.

Monday



Jaipur

Quick game to end the evening with my wife. I won in two rounds. We played this frequently enough that the cards are actually beginning to show a little wear. Nothing bad yet, but they handle differently than all my other games at this point.

Tuesday



Kingdom Builder

One of the rare games I actually enjoying playing solo with all players that isn't a coop. I'll just sit down a play a game of this by myself from time to time and try different approaches.

Wednesday

Glory to Rome - Solo game to cement the rules. I'm comfortable with the rules now. It's a chaotic game and I'm still finding my way with tactics, but as you'll see below, I'm comfortable teaching it now.

Friday

Othello - BGA, I think I've played this game out for a while.

Saturday

After dinner, we played games with my friend and his wife. First up was



Alhambra

I taught it quickly to my friend's wife, the rest of us had played it before. Roe sat to my right and took the building I was about to buy multiple times. He won a narrow victory. The three experienced players were all within 10 points.

My friend's wife didn't feel well, so she went to bed leaving the three of us to play



Pandemic

Roe had play this a few times before, but never won. Kim and I win a fair amount of our 2p games. We drew the medic, researcher and first responder (from State of Emergency) and won a pretty easy victory. Didn't even have a single outbreak all game long.

My wife went to bed, so Roe select his favorite 2p game in my collection.



1960: The Making of the President

He had beaten me as Nixon the last time we played, so we switched sides and I handed out a beating of the first order. We didn't even bother to count electoral votes at the end. I suspect I won with ~400 electors.

Sunday

We both were running errands, but got a few quick games in during the late afternoon.



Glory to Rome

I taught him this and won pretty easily. I can see the few games I've already played gave me an advantage as I could leverage my starting buildings into a more effective plan quickly.



Cribbage

We had time for a quick game of cribbage and he pegged out during scoring on the last turn before I could score my hand & crib for a 7 pt win.

Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar - Lost badly on BGA in a 3p game.

I realized about halfway through the game that he was from San Clemente - should have let him play Nixon. He told me about how he had staged a 1960 event at the Nixon Library - pretty neat!

My nominee for MOST FUN would be this CDG that simulates the events of that year very well while also allowing for different strategies for victory.

Despite some of the harsh rhetoric regarding advertising being a weak mechanic (started by opponents of this nomination in an obvious dirty-tricks whisper campaign), this game has continued to find a welcome place on our gaming table.

With the new edition on the horizon, I am confident this now-classic game will not only attract new supporters, but will sway the convention delegates to elect 1960 on the first ballot for MOST FUN.

Let's make board gaming great again.

1960 THE MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT

b]Lingua:[/b] inglese

Dipendenza dalla lingua: alta. Regolamento e testo sulle carte in inglese. Fornisco copia del regolamento in italiano

Stato: Z. La scatola presenta segni di usura agli angoli (no strappi o buchi comunque). Purtroppo ho perso il token-sigillo dello stato del Colorado; il difetto comunque non pregiudica la giocabilità in quanto il numero dei voti dei “grandi elettori” è riportato anche sul tabellone in corrispondenza di ogni stato. Casa non fumatori

Consegna: spedizione gratuita in Italia, all'estero fino a 10 euro. Possibile scambio a mano a Venezia e dintorni

Note: Si tratta dell'edizione Z-MAN
