I always dreamed of making a game based on Elections. One can enter name, party, and run inall States with a random n umber mto project win or loss, and other candidates, real or not.

Another would be based on real estate.

Any ideas or a newbie?

You'd be best to do something like this in HTML as its cross platform and HTML is the easier language for something you want to do it in..
