    This is going to be a shortened version of the game I'd planned before life intervened, but generated from the 2016 Presidential Election Thread, here's how it works:

    1) You post a picture, or a hotlink to a specific 270 To Win map.

    For example: http://www.270towin.com/maps/3RmoQ

    From your own created 270 To Win map, click the "Share Map" button at the bottom of your map when completed and use that hotlink.

    Also post the electoral vote totals in text.

    2) You post who you expect the winner to be.

    3) You post the answer to three tie-breaker questions:

    a) What is the percentage popular vote totals of the top-two vote getters, and
    b) What is the total amount of people who voted in the country, and
    c) Will any third-party gain more than 5% of the popular vote.

    RULES:

    1) If you select the wrong winner of the US Presidential election, regardless of getting other questions correct, you are DQ'd from winning.
    2) Victory will be determined by Electoral College Map, then Electoral College +/-, then the tie-breaker questions in order. In the event of a tie, vin will kiss your sister.
    3) Winners will receive colors for a week. You must select a Blue color scheme if you picked Hillary Clinton, and a Red color scheme if you picked Donald Trump. If you pick Evan McMullin and he wins -- you can pick any damned color scheme you want right after you go out and buy lottery tickets.

    EXAMPLE ENTRY:

    Winner: McMullin
    Electoral Map: http://www.270towin.com/maps/3RmoQ and Clinton 269, Trump 263, McMullin 6
    Tie-Breaker 1: Hillary Clinton 46%, Donald Trump 39%
    Tie-Breaker 2: 123,456,789
    Tie-Breaker 3: Yes

    All adjudication is by GrandAdmiralJello using Ancient Roman Edicts, as applied by Alexander Hamilton against Thomas Jefferson (i.e. Cabinet rap battle).

    Unlikely I know but I am praying for a large turnout of anti-Trumpers who have been silent so far..

    Clinton wins.

    Clinton with 349.Trump 189

    Votes: 110,202,000

    Popular Vote: Clinton 49% Trump 37%

    No third party gets more than 5% but Trump barely wins Utah thanks to McMullin

    It will probably be this:
    [​IMG]
    Clinton wins
    49%-Clinton, 42%-Trump (the rest is Johnson & McMullin, maybe 0.8-2.5% for Stein)
    125,000,000
    No 3rd party surpassed 5% on its own

    That's what I'm going with.

    I think marathoning West Wing may very well be my therapy once this nightmare ends on Tuesday.

    I also screwed up on Nevada on my map. Argh.

    If those two electors don't get kicked to the curb in Washington, in your scenario that would be 269 apiece.

    Edit: Well, I guess not, but they would be a factor to consider.
