Much as I like this game, I just don't seem to have the intelligence to get a Kennedy win. I've had maybe ten games now and, although some have been close, Tricky Dick wins every time. I know it must be me, not the game - please don't think I'm calling the game 'broken' or anything stupid like that - but there seems to be a heck of a lot more Nixon cards than Kennedy ones. I haven't counted, but it just feels that way.

It's funny, because there are other threads saying how easy it is for Jack. I wonder if they're die-hard 1960 or TS players, because I'm just not seeing it. What are your favourite JFK tactics?

I have played tricky dick more often, cause my wife likes Kennedy... But I win a lot more with him. I always see great opportunities for him, and usually Kennedy players I think get too defensive trying to hold NY.

Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

I wrote and posted a Kennedy strategy article as a response to this query.
