Introduction

Playstyle
Bernie Sanders has reshaped politics for an entire generation of voters, and has defied expectations before, but can he defy them again?
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Hyper Stamina: Despite his age, Bernie has had no problem keeping up a flexible campaign schedule and being ahead of the game when it means the difference between winning or losing. Correspondingly, he'll be able to outposition his opponents and end his turns on his terms more often than not.
  • Engaging Speaker: Sanders will have no problem getting his voice across and hitting multiple speeches in the campaign trail as a progressive folklore hero, as people will tune in and be swayed every time you hit the campaign trail. Use his stamina reduction and +10% effectiveness during speeches to win critical races.
  • Political Expert: As a politician for 40 years, Bernie Sanders has built a powerful image that has allowed him to network at the extensive grassroots and political level, meaning he'll be able to leverage his experience with to get the cards he wants to win over electorates.
  • Slow Start: Like most progressive, Bernie may struggle to pass his views onto the American public, and may slightly suffer with independents due to his orthodox of liberal stances, which will be further exacerbated by his lack of funds at the start of the game. However he fares better than other progressive challengers when it comes to issue stances.
