Political Games

Where I'm Clicking Now: GoCrossPoliticalBash08

Hold on to your hats, this is a nerdy one! GoCrossPoliticalBash08 is part of the game phenomenon GoCrossCampus or GXC. It's an online a variation on board games like Risk, and has spawned quite a following on college campuses. That's pretty nerdy, but it gets better: in the political version of the game, players (anyone with an .edu email address can play) are battling a virtual version of the presidential campaign. Who are the big two candidates? Ron Paul and Stephen Colbert.

Want in? Here's how to play:

The rules of GXC are relatively simple. Every player is allocated a number of armies each day and must coordinate attacks, troop movements and defensive maneuvers with teammates. Players can move their armies once each day, and the game software calculates the result of clashes with an algorithm that gives a slight edge to defenders.

And forget talk of superdelegates. Currently Texas is controlled by Ron Paul and 99 armies and California is controlled by Stephen Colbert and his 277 armies. I don't know but they might be onto something. Never mind the Electoral College, this might be the most powerful display of true democracy in the whole campaign.
