"Campaign Manager 2008" plays sort of like a 30-minute version of the INCREDIBLE game "1960: The Making of the President," which make sense, as it was designed by the same people.
This game gets my vote!
That being said, I will admit that this game, though still accurate to the feeling of a presidential election, loses some of the depth and theme that seemed to ooze out of 1960. On a plus side though, elections are often tense, and usually wind up either ending fast if your doing badly, or being tight until the last state (which a game about elections should do).
As a whole, this game should please anybody into politics. The production quality is outstanding for the price, the games are fast, and it gives everything you need for a fun, tense two player strategy game. Now if only I cared about either of the candidates.
CM2008 is touted as a 30 minute game with a moderate amount of components, so I wasn't expecting my mind to be blown, but my expectations were exceeded by how fun it was.
The components are beautiful, the cards are heavy and durable, and the tokens are solid. The game I played was back and forth, with the win coming down to 1 state (New Hampshire, of all places). It really came down to who would draw the last winning card, so take that for what it's worth.
My main complaint is the symmetry between the two decks of cards for each player. It takes away from some of the theme, where both sides have the same exact tricks up their sleeves. I suppose it could be a statement about politics, but it ended up where I would see what my opponent played and wondered when my same card would show up.
Keep in mind that we were playing the beginner's game, so when you do the drafting option for cards, it should mix up the cards.
I don't see this game having a long shelf life, but for the price that I bought it ($12) it was well worth it.

Ideology aside, this game really captures the feeling of trying to win an election as best a board game can. The tensions are high as you compete for one of 4 states at a time. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Ashley
