Alternate US Presidents Game

PostPosted: Fri Nov 30, 2018 4:46 pm

This was a somewhat popular game a couple years back on NS, so I decided to make a new incarnation of it.

Rules:
1. The legal elections are every 4 years from 1788-2016. After the 2016 election, the game resets, and a new 1788 election occurs.
2. Presidents must be 35 years of age at the time of their election, and they must have been born either in the United States or to two American parents.
3. Footnotes are allowed, but they're not required.
4. No double posting (i.e. typing the results for two presidential elections in a row).
5. Every election post must have the election year, the candidate elected, and the party the candidate is from. It also must be bold and in the party's color.
6. Alternate history in either American politics (Whigs survive, or a new party rises) or world affairs (Germany wins WWI) are acceptable. However, there are two exceptions to this rule.
6A. America must stay as an independent nation at least roughly the size of the original 13 colonies through 2016.
6B. Every person dies when they did OTL. For example, Abraham Lincoln must die in 1865. The causes, however, can be different.
7. All presidents have to be real-life figures.
8. When making an entry, you have to copy all of the prior elections/footnotes, so that you're adding to the list.
9. Only do elections every four years. If someone else becomes president in the middle of the term, put it into footnotes.
10. I can make new rules if I wish.
