I do think the next four years will boil down to one long game of tic-tac-toe...
Twilight Struggle, clearly.
Civilization board game.
I thought of this too. I tried to read the rules before online but it didn’t click with me how it all worked. I’m familiar with Chris Crawford’s game Balance of Power, but that’s a computer game.
I suppose if I had an actual copy of the game, it would be a lot easier for me to understand.
Using a board game couldn't possibly be more stupid than the Electoral College tbf
I choose Fireball Island
My initial idea was to have them face off on Jeopardy! although the show typically has three contestants.
Would have been good for ‘92.
Yeah, it makes a lot more sense when you play it a few times.
A blank sheet of paper for a board and the rules of Mornington Crescent.
It is settled, we have them play Candyland.
I would favor a series of contests. Arm wrestling, obstacle course, a battle of wits with iocane.
So long as it's sportsmanlike.
The electoral college is a board game. We're the pawns.
A game of backgammon between those two would be an absolute laugh riot. Zero chance either would ever understand the rules. They could both be dead before the game ever reached a conclusion.
You need a deck of cards: take out the 8 of spades and the 3 of clubs. Shoot the rest into the air.
Pickup 50. The ability to smile while cleaning up a bully's mess might be the most important skill here.
I noticed that you didn’t take out the jokers. Is that because they’re the ones doing the work?
Yeah this joke is crap but whatever.
Twilight Struggle also exsists in a computer version.
Man, Balance of Power. That takes me back. Always used to end in some completely trivial conflict escalating into nuclear war.
USSR PLEDGES $20 MILLION MILITARY AID TO SALVADORIAN REBELS
GMT Games also made 1960: The Making of a President but modern US elections ain't like that any more.
You can still incorporate board games though, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_boxing .
Separate names with a comma.
