Up to six players battle it out to win the majority of electoral votes and become President of the USA. Each player answers questions about America and every correct answer usually gains them 5 chips to place on the board. They can place these in no more than two states. As soon as a player has got 51% of the votes in a state they win all of the votes in that state. For example, Indiana returns 12 electoral votes. As soon as a player has staked 7 chips in that state they win ALL 12 votes. As soon as a player has grabbed 275 electoral votes he/she is declared the President! The designers advise that if six start then only two should be left at the end and Run Off to see who wins the Presidency. The board is quite large and the playing pieces are brightly colored counters. The board is simply a map of the USA with how many electoral votes are assigned to each state.
