About this project
Bull Moose is a 3 to 5 player U. S. presidential election game based on the 1912 election. The split in the Republican party resulted in Teddy Roosevelt launching the Progressive Party. This gave the Democrats their first viable shot since 1893 placing Woodrow Wilson in the running. Concurrently the Socialists under Eugene Debs had their best showing to date. The Prohibitionists fielded Eugene Chafin running only 7 years prior to the passing of the 18th Amendment (prohibition).
This 90 minute game is straightforward, card driven and geographically based where the winners of each state are decided by lot. Each candidate has his own deck of cards consisting of equal values but historically based strengths and weaknesses.

Risks and challenges
Any project that involves the printing and packaging of an item overseas, to be delivered on a boat to a port in the U.S., is bound to run into a few delays along the way. Fortunately, I have had many years of experience working with the same Chinese manufacturer, the same forwarder and suppliers. As for our fulfillment track record, it speaks for itself with 13 games published to date including one funded by Kickstarter supporters.
