A game that attempts to capture the essence of the upcoming 1972 election "from the state primaries to Election Day". Campaign buttons from Muskie, Rockefeller, Lindsey, Wallace, and other also-rans join those of Nixon and McGovern on the cover. Players vie for the support of various states in the "primaries", then compare totals in the "election". Because players must reduce their hand for the election to the number held by the player who won the fewest states, White House is at best a game that reinforces the "focus on the largest states to win" view. At worst, it is a race for California. Still, by using the candidates of the time, it provides a window into the 1972 election.
