In 1960: The Making of the President, you take on the role of one of the great protagonists - Richard Nixon or John F Kennedy - vying to lead America through an era of turbulent change.
The candidates must contend with all the great issues of the day, from the Cold War to civil rights to voters' pocket books. The contest is fought on an electoral map of the United States as it stood in 1960. Using a card-driven game system, all the major events which shaped the campaign are represented. As with a real election campaign, the challenge is to adapt your game plan as the ground shifts out from under you. There are never enough resources or time to do everything, so you need to make the tough calls.
This fast-playing strategy game for two players challenges you to relive the most significant political contest of the Twentieth Century. Will you recreate history,or rewrite it? 1960: The Making of the President provides you the opportunity to do both.
