Iran’s Elections -- The Video Game


Hat tip to Ali Alfoneh, and apologies to Jonah for this timewaster, here

You start with 30% of the vote. The goal is to move Mir Hossein Mousavi around using the arrow keys, collect newspaper endorsements (+10 percent) and radio/TV programs (+15 and 20 percent) while avoiding Ayatollah Jannati (-5 percent), Pres. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (-5 percent), the internal security forces (-10 percent), and the Guardian Council (game over). Going to the ballot box will move you to the next background.
