"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!
Two players. One is Obama and one McCain.
Similar to 1960's Making of the President with a few different small rules and uber simplified.
It's easy to learn. Easy to play.
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.
The components are very nice quality, which is what I have come to expect from Z-Man Games. Some of the electoral pieces are a bit tiny, but it hasn't been a problem for us.
My only complaint is that the theme can be a real turn off. I wish they had made this a generic campaign instead because it can be a tough sell as it is. Once someone plays it they really get into it.
