"Love this game on so many fronts. First, I tried to run for president twice, but lost both times. Here I can actually win. And secondly it always reminds me of the best zinger us Democrats ever had 'I knew Jack Kennedy....Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy.' Gosh, why didn't I pick a snappy running mate like that instead of the stiff Lieberman...oh well."

(1) 1960: The Making of the President - My second play of this game and I hadn't played it in over 8 years. Last time I just learned it quick and started playing and didn't really know what was going on. This time, I read the rules a few times and watched videos (as did my opponent) and we had a pretty good idea of what we were doing. Nonetheless, on the last turn, he made a move that swung about 50 votes in the Midwest to me when I triggered his event with a momentum marker since I had two endorsements there; he had media and thought that was what broke ties (no cubes in the state). We scored it with him not making that move at the end to see the difference. I won by a lot when we let me have most of the Midwest states and I won by just a few votes without that swing. So, it wasn't the deciding factor but it was a big difference. I enjoyed this more than I expected, but I did definitely see the "back-and-forth" issue that I've heard others complain about. It reminds me that I have to play Twilight Struggle again soon!

(2) Terra Mystica - I believe this is the best new game to come out in the last 7 to 8 years and the expansion just makes it better. I heard rumor that it will have a version in space sometime in the future and that sounds not good to me, but maybe they'll change the game enough without screwing it up to make it worthwhile... we'll see.

(3) Memoir '44 - I don't play this often and it's not really my style of game, but I like it. I was the good guys in the Saverne Gap scenario and I sort of ran out fast and sacrificed too many in an effort to take two cities for the win. I just needed a bit more support. I did have a chance at one point where I could have pulled off the win, but probably not. I'll keep this around and try it more... I like the different scenarios.

(4) Ingenious - I taught it to and played against Dane (7 years old). I was only allowed to have 3 tiles in the rack while he kept the regular 6. I gave him just a few pointers during the game, including an early reminder to shut your opponent out of their weakest color. He did that well and beat me on the third color as we were tied on the first two. He made a clever move at the end to ensure he had the last turn and sealed the victory. Good stuff and the handicap used seemed just about perfect.

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

Got in a math trade but never played. All components are there and in great condition (from my knowledge it was played twice before). Some shelf wear and one corner of the lid has a small split in it.

My wife's job has been absolutely insane for the past year, so we haven't played this game which is part of our regular rotation. I played it with my friend who was visiting from out of town.

Quote:
Sometimes the history of a nation can be defined by the relationship between two individuals. The Election of 1960 is the story of two men, John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon. One is the scion of a wealthy, politically powerful family from New England. The other is the son of a Quaker grocer in Whittier, California. While they belong to opposing political parties, they start out as friends. The complex development of that friendship, however, would shape a pivotal presidential election and cast a long shadow over American history for the remainder of the 20th century.


Thoughts: A reprint of a marginally lighter CDG, 1960 should be out by our election season.
