Each player chooses a candidate as a playing piece. The gameboard is a square track of fifty-nine spaces. Each player starts at a different start space, which acts as campaign headquarters. All fifty states and the District of Columbia are represented on the spaces. The other spaces permit the player to draw a chance card. On one’s turn one rolls two dice and advances on the gameboard. Rolling “doubles” earns the player a free turn. When a player lands on a state a second time, the player adds that state’s electoral votes to one’s tally. When a player collects 270 electoral votes, the player must still roll “doubles” to win the game.
