Game Features

Run for President of the United States as one of over a dozen presidential candidates or create your own ideal candidate. Give speeches, go on talk shows, hire unsavory operatives, and do whatever it takes to win on election day.

  • Time for Some Mudslinging! – Use your power and money to purchase ads and influence voters.
  • Over a Dozen Candidates – Play as one of several pre-made candidates like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
  • Out-talk, Out-smart, and Out-spend your Opponents – Gain favor with the public by interviewing on talk shows, navigate disastrous random events, and buy advertisements to gain an advantage over your adversary.
  • Practice Your Politics – A sophisticated underlying simulation model uses census data and real issues to test your political savvy.
  • Turn Friends into Frenemies – Challenge a friend for the presidency in multiplayer mode.
  • Create a Candidate – Not a fan of the candidates? Create your own custom front runner and race for the White House.
  • Be Ready for Anything – Torrid affairs, natural disasters, email scandals, and other random events can come out of nowhere and change the direction of the campaign for better or worse.
  • Check your Standings – With poll tracking and leaderboards, you can see how well people are playing as their candidates or what issues they are supporting over time.
