Caution: May contain wargame like substance
mbmbmbmbmb
Ok, a little light hearted campaigning on US election day.

During the presidential campaign of 1928, a circular published by the Republican Party claimed that if Herbert Hoover won there would be “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.”

So, in the spirit of the thing, pretend you're running for election as president of your wargaming club.

"If elected, I promise a ___ on every table, a ___ on every shelf."

"If elected, I promise a dice tray on every table, a Case Blue on every shelf."

Modify to suit.

And yes, this should be in AWOL, I'll move it there after tonight's vote is done with. This is just meant for some lighthearted fun.

I don't know what you have to say, it makes no difference anyway: whatever it is, I'm against it!

I already have the former in Agricola: Farmers of the Moor, and the latter is an impossible promise, so you won't be getting my vote!

You put the obvious Case Blue response in the original post.

How about this:

"If elected I promise a monster wargame on every table with every expansion on the shelves."

Hmmm. I've got two different weekly face to face opponents, and every core module with a duplicate Red Barricades as my travel set.

You're not getting my vote.

This will require the establishment of a new administrative department of the government ... DFOW... Department of Faced-to-Face Opposed Wargaming to ensure sufficient of Face-to-Face wargamers available within 1 hour of every wargamer. This may require a cabinet position.

Or, perhaps DFOG - Department of Faced-to-Face Opposed Gaming.

Since when are impossible promises hindering people to vote for politicians? After the wall came down, Helmut Kohl promised that the reunification wouldn't cost anybody a single additional Mark. He was opposed by Oskar Lafontaine who honestly admitted that the reunification will cost billions of Marks. Kohl won in a landslide...

If I were elected, I promise well-tested magazine wargames and short, comprehensible and errata-free rules for every game!

The errata will address those problems.

Which reminds me:

If elected, I promise errata on every table, a FAQ on every shelf. (Wait, we already have that!)
