Been lurking for several months, and I was wondering how that first draft goes.  It looks like each faction starts with some people already.  Is this pre-determined, or they randomly assigned?

It kind of works like an expansion draft in sports. Every politician active at your start point will enter the draft pool and you'll have an opportunity to draft them. Or you can have the CPU do the draft for you. Once everyone has been drafted, the game begins.

Much like WilltheScout described above.  Just one more point:  using default rules, each faction/player is assigned 2-3 starting ideologies.   For example, the Conservative-Moderate faction can only draft conservatives or moderates from their party.  You can only draft other ideologies if you've depleted the pool for your starting ideologies.

This rule can be turned off if you don't mind things like a faction being made up of Bernie Sanders and Joe Manchin on the same team.

Holy crap, I just realized I could be creating a side hustle running all these games for people.  Haha!

 

;c)

You laugh, but with the enthusiasm I’m seeing on the forum and Discord, I actually wonder how much you’d be able to make!

I can’t wait to see who gets Benedict Arnold 😛 

Haha, I’m just generally eager to see what kind of “breakout stars” this timeline gets, like Benedict Arnold and Daniel Hiester.

If I wasn't significantly falling behind at my actual job, I'd more seriously consider it.  ;c)

@10centjimmy’s got my ancestor Richard Adams Jr and some close cousins Dana and Trowbridge. Also 4th cousin to John Adams. Trowbridge and Dana are something like 1st and 3rd cousins respectively. Generations removed, of course. Richard Adams Jr is a direct ancestor. He was in the Massachusetts colonial legislature during the Rev War and was a delegate at the state’s first constitution.
