1960 (aka 1960: The Making of the President) (2007)

Nice design. Although I enjoy Twilight Struggle, I think 1960 solves a number of small issues I have with it.

1) Bad hands (CP-wise) are mitigated by Rest Cubes and Campaign Bag.
2) Bad hands (event-wise) are mitigated by Momentum.
3) More things to juggle (media, endorsements, issues, debates).
4) Scoring only happens at the end.

It's a simple system made complex by 91 unique events. Each card has 4 functions: event (for one or both players), campaign points (campaign, advertise, position), issue icon for debates, and state for election day. Each full game turn, you have either 6 or 7 cards. You need to decide which cards to play during the turn, and which you want to save for the debate/election day. For the debate, you generally want high-valued cards with your own icon and a symbol for the issue(s) you want to win. For election day, you want cards with states that have a chance of swinging your way with 3 support checks. In both these cases, you don't know exactly what you might need at the beginning of the turn (and less so in earlier turns), and you may even change your mind as the events play out.

---

I have changed my mind on this. After playing it a bit, I now understand why TS works the way it does, and I enjoy it more.

The Minnesota map is as good as, but different from, the basic maps (8). The Japan map turns the game into Agricola (5). Thus the 6.5 rating.

High in fun. Low in everything else. No such a bad thing for a party game.

Interesting physical issues: the huge box is almost empty, yet the board doesn't really fit into it. The game is really nice light fare. Card/action drafting, card-driven movement, low score wins. A little heavy on rules for such a light game, but pretty easy to teach.

I don't really see what all the fuss is about. It's normal Carc with different scoring for the "roads" and fields. It's a good game, but I like City, Castle, and T&B better.

A mildly different flavor to the basic game, but I feel it's a step down in play. The river, while ostensibly trying to split the map in 2, actually tends to make it all one large field.

Not bad as a light version of Arkham, but yet another FFG failure of graphic design. They not only don't have a clue, they also don't have a clue that they don't have a clue. The card stock and cutting sucks. There are 10x more components than there needs to be.
