AMPU Achievement Brainstorm


Recommended Posts

I thought it might be fun to brainstorm a list of potential "achievements" for @vcczar's "A More Perfect Union" game.  These can be serious or silly.  For example...

"A Date That Will Live In Infamy" -- Declare War on a nation that attacks you first.
"One Small Step For Man" -- Be President when the US becomes first to put a man on the moon
"The Buck Stops Here" -- Veto 100 proposed bills in the course of a single game.
"Speak Softly, and Carry a Big Stick" -- Achieve a peace agreement immediately before war was about to break out
"And When Did He Know It?" -- Be Impeached
"My God, What Have You Done" -- Get every member of the Trump family elected President

This looks like it would be awful to try and do for some of the unexpected dark horse candidates in the 19th century 😛

Especially since you only control one faction of one party, so by definition you can only directly influence about 1/8 of the real life Presidents.  But I like the challenge!

Awesome.  I love the down with the patriarchy one.  We could also name it "Nevertheless, she persisted."

Loyalist Stronghold - As Benedict Arnold, shed the “flip flopper” and “two-faced” traits, gain the “military hero” trait, become the first president of the United States, and launch an successful invasion against Canada.

(This would be a difficult but I feel popular one)
