Who wants to be President of Conquer Club???
It is time to have the 2008 presidential elections.
The tournament will be run as follows:
Due to potential # of games - Premium Required
Pick a Candidate: 6 players per Candidate
1st round - Survive the US Senate -
To be the one true Candidate you will need to survive in the US Senate:
6 player match first one eliminated is well eliminated; 5 remaining will then go on to a 5 player match with the same rules until we are down to 2 players competing to be the real candidate.
2nd Round - The Debates
These 4 "real" candidates will then battle it out in the Debates to win the party Nomination:
1) World Hunger - Africa
2) Global Warming - Extreme Global Warming
3) War - Middle East
4) Trade - Far East
5) Education - CCU
6) Economics of Lower and Middle Classes - Madness
There will be a point system in the debates:
1st - 10, 2nd - 7, 3rd - 4, 4th - 1
Most Points gets the Presidential Nomination for the Party while Second will be the Vice Presidential nominee. Tiebreaker TBD
3rd Round - The Elections
This is where this tournament will take a turn; no longer will it be singles. It will now be doubles battle:
Republicans vs Democrats:
13 battles representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the Electoral College: Regions have been divided based off of 2004 Elections - 4th post
I will calculate votes based on a scoring system yet to be determined. Just like the real election it will be possible to win the Presidency without winning the Majority. What a great country we have here?
All games will be Sequential, Escalating, Unlimited, No Fog
