High Tech and Low Tech Meet in the Election Unit
The board game titled Landslide was published by Parker Brothers in 1971. Up to four players aim to obtain as many electoral votes as they can. The players use their popular votes (used much like money in other games) to bid for states, and whoever has the most electoral votes at the end of the game is the winner. The game follows the 1970 census, and correctly represents the electoral college apportionment for each state.
