    Interesting, Educational, Eye-Opening

    This app provides a great visual illustration of what electoral votes mean in a U.S. presidential election. As one progresses in the simulation, the reason why campaigns often focus on only a handful of states becomes increasingly clear. While this simulation is entertaining and educational for an individual, it would be an outstanding tool in a classroom setting. Imagine a discussion with comments like, "I didn't even bother trying to change the votes of such-and-such state," or "I didn't spend a dime in my own home state!" How about, "Wow! Most of the map was red/blue, and the other party still won!"

    The app developer noted that updates and enhancements may be forthcoming. Specific feedback from states could make this really good app even better.

    A pretty good game

    Fun gameplay but you can't compete against anyone and all you do is play the same thing over and over again. Once you've mastered it it gets kinda boring.

    Fascinating simulation of real-world challenge

    Considering what is being simulated, this is a fun game. On the easy setting, this game is manageable. On the harder levels, it is very difficult. All the same, I found this very enjoyable, and I hope the vendor continues to grow and improve this game.
