@Cal @ConservativeElector2 @MrPotatoTed @Rodja @matthewyoung123 @Willthescout7 @Lars @jvikings1 and anyone else who is in a playtest.

1840 Playtest-

9th President- William Henry Harrison, OH, Whig, 1840-44.  He didn't die in 1841 like he did historically.

10th President- William Marcy, NY, Democrat, 1844-48.  Narrowly lost re-election when it went to the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court upheld Fillmore's election.

11th President- Millard Fillmore, NY, Whig, 1848-49.  Fillmore and a number of other important politicians died when a cannon exploded on the USS Princeton.  VP becomes President.

12th President- Jacob Broom II, PA, Whig, 1849-52.  Another election that went to the House, and again, the challenger won.

13th President- James K. Polk, TN, Democrat, 1852-current (in the playtest).  Polk was serving as the Speaker of the House when elected President.  He would have won outright had there not been a 3rd party candidate that took critical electoral votes away from him.  The House resolved the issue with Polk being awarded the Presidency.

1772 single player playtest

In a world where the Constitution allows all races to vote but women are still left out and slavery continues to exist in 12/13 states...

1st President - Abraham Whipple, Federalist (though the party didn't have a name yet).  1789-1793.  Whipple was an Admiral who made a name for himself during our invasion of Canada in the midst of the American Revolution.  (We lost the invasion, but Whipple was the one good part of that debacle.)  John Hancock, from the opposing party, was his VP.

2nd President - Peleg Arnold, Arnoldian Democrat-Republican.  1793-present (1796).  Arnold (after serving at the Constitutional Convention, the Senate, and creating our Navy) was President Whipple's Secretary of Treasury before becoming President himself.  His Vice President is Daniel Boone.

There was also the 2000 playthrough many rules changes ago.

 

2001-2009: George Bush, Republican.  Convinced Democrats to give him the line item veto, used that to get unlimited Presidential terms, declared wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, AND Russia (over Georgian invasion).  Russia was a bridge too far, leading to his defeat.

2009-?: Joe Biden, Democrat.  Everyone was sure it would be Hilary, but Joe pulled off a deal that I think maybe included Hilary as VP.  Plus thanks to Bush, Biden took office with the line item veto AND unlimited Presidential terms.

1960 playthrough (LBJ and Nixon both decline to run)

 

1960-? John Bricker (Former Senator and Gov of OH) with VP Paul Lexalt (Attorney General of NV).  They defeated John F Kennedy and his running mate…actor Ronald Reagan.

This playtest isn't active is it?

Also, @ everyone I've updated the original post to reflect the presidents. 

1. Does anyone know who was elected president in older playtest, going back as far as the original playtest? Maybe @ConservativeElector2 or @MrPotatoTed know. 

2. Any other playtest out there not on the list? @matthewyoung123 I think you have a singleplayer 1772 right? 

One thing I'm noticing is that we have not had three terms of the same party in power. Better news is that we haven't had one party in power the entire time!

Yes, but we are still in the Revolution.  Haven't made it to Constitutional Convention yet.

I remember in the REALLY old version, I started with President Washington who served two terms. Following was President Thomas Paine, who really drove the country in ruin. After that, Aaron Burr and James Jackson (IRL a senator from Georgia I think) became the first post 12th Amendment ticket. Somehow, James Jackson became President and the military dictatorship event hit and he passed the rolls to do it, ending that playthrough IIRC.

Maybe the Botanist found the herb for everlasting life!

The best part is that the rules state you automatically retire if you’re over 100. 

He’ll be EXACTLY 100, so he gets the opportunity to run for another term if he chooses (I haven’t found the rules on that yet)

I think the original playtest had Andrew Jackson as the final president. This was way back in the old forum. 

I remember one ended with the final ticket being Quincy III and Stephen Van Rennselaer (which I tried VERY hard to make happen for VP lol)

Let me know if this needs to be updated. 

1840 Playtest- James K. Polk wins reelection in 1856 becoming the first President since Andrew Jackson (and the first one in this playtest) to win a 2nd term of office.  However, he does it with only 42% of the popular vote, as the Whig Party splits and the Know-Nothing/American Party wins in three states.
