Introduction

Playstyle
Donald Trump is an aggressive rushdown character that does not hesitate to get into the fray. Trump will have no problem playing wide, or mixing it up and concentrating on a few states.
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Hyper Stamina: Donald Trump's stamina is a focal point of his campaigning style. Allowing him to quickly get into the race and set up HQs all across the country, thanks to his next attribute...
  • Tycoon Billionaire: Thanks to his wealthy status, he will have no problem throwing loads of money into the race to get the best HQs and starts that a candidate could ask for.
  • Charismatic Politician: Trump's voice has elevated and enthused crowds all across the nation, whether in-person or on social-media, and thanks to this populist fervor, he can use it to campaign aggressively and take control of the conversation anytime he likes. No state is too far out of reach when you combine this with strong money, and powerful energy.
  • Trump Populism Deck: Trump's political ideology deck is among the best in the game, with everything from cheap cards to decrease your opponent's enthusiasm thanks to his Subtweet card, alongside powerful game-changing cards like Drain The Swamp to clear the map. Start the game off with a good Hire the Right People to get 3 political capital per turn, and end it off with a America First Rally to define the map and tip the conversation.
  • Dislike by the Media: While Trump doesn't have too much cons, he will have to shell out an extra point of stamina to get his ads up and running in a toxic media environment, meaning there is the possibility your opponents will outrun you in ads. Good use of your deck of cards will be paramount to overcome this.
  • Political Experience: Despite being a former President, he has not gotten along well with the political establishment and has left adversaries in his wake. Meaning he will have to overcome hurdles that other political-insiders have managed to make a career out of. Despite this he has a good hand size of 5, which will bode quite well with his deck.


Stamina Attributes

In a single turn Trump can do:

  • Up to 13 movements in a single turn.
  • Up to 3 Speeches with 1 stamina point leftover.
  • Up to 2 Advertisements with 3 stamina points leftover.
  • Up to 3 HQ upgrades with 1 stamina point leftover.
