Yeah I would have guessed either Teddy or Lincoln on top.

He underestimates Nixon. The man was supersmart and sported ruthlessness only rivaled by his paranoia. He hangs back and lets the others slaughter each other, occasionally moving in to knock off the strongest contenders if the opportunity to do so safely arises. The only issue is what happens when it's down to him and only a couple of others.

I think he ranks Lincoln too high, but Jackson and Roosevelt are certainly top 3 material. Of course if the other presidents have knowledge of this (the rules don't specify if they have foreknowledge of the presidents that come after them), others might try to knock them off early. If I'm in there I'm wanting AJ and TR out of the contest early and I'm going to convince others to assist in that.

I'm surprised this isn't a Hollywood movie yet, given the Abe Lincoln and FDR movies. :lol
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Brilliant...



The Taft one is particularly awesome...

That was amazing.

I agree on his toughest 3, but like EB, I doubt they would all survive a free-for-all knife fighting battle royal.  Everyone else would gang up on them.

A single elimination (obviously) tournament would be more likely for one of them to win.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

This needs to be made into a video game immediately.  And it should include both battle royale mode and single elimination tournament mode.

I agree. I was trying to decide if it would be better as the Royal Rumble, or more of a Kumite style tournament.
