Cube placement:

1. Cube piles are located on the bottom-right (Kennedy) and top-right (Nixon) of the screen (next to the candidate card).

2. Cubes can be placed on the states by right-clicking on the state's square space.

3. Cubes can be placed on media by right-clicking on the Media section of the board.

4. Cubes can be placed on issues by right-clicking on the appropriate issue tile.

5. Cubes can be placed in the Rest Cups by right-clicking on the coffee mugs.

Cubes may not be deleted. To remove support from a state, issue, or media, right-click on the cube(s) to be removed and select "return to pile." The cubes will be placed back into their piles (see #1 above).

Momentum and Endorsement markers can be located on in the Markers tab of the Pieces panel.

To Draw Cubes from the Political Capital Bag:

1. Open the Political Capital Bag Window by clicking the appropriate button on the VASSAL toolbar.

2. The game begins with 10 cubes for each side already in the bag. Vassal handles the "bag" like a deck of cards. The "deck" appears as a single cube in the middle of the Political Capital Bag Window. The color of the cube is the color of the last cube placed in the bag. THIS WILL NOT AFFECT THE RANDOMNESS OF THE DRAW. EACH DRAW IS RANDOM.

3. To draw a cube, click and drag (as you would a card from the deck) a cube from the "deck" or "draw pile" a short ways away from the draw pile. This produces a random draw.

4. To discard the drawn cubes—you don't want them to go back into the "bag"—click on the "Return Cubes" button on the toolbar of the Political Capital Bag Window. This eliminates the drawn cubes while preserving the integrity of the "bag".
