So none of the players secured requested 73 electors. It means that the weakest player have to  leave the game. The weakest player is Yellow. (The reason for his poor result is that his lead in Florida was not big enough to secure Florida´s 29 electors.)

 

 

 

 

 

First re-count

Two states hold by Yellow have to go to players on the second positions there. Wisconsin to Green and Nevada to Red. And the most important, Florida to Red. Red leads 5 to Greens 2 in Florida and he secured its 29 electors.

So even now none of the players secured requested 73 electors. It means that the weakest player have to leave the game again. The weakest player is now Blue. (The reason may be he got no States from Yellow in the first re-count.)

 

 

 

 

Second re-count

Three states hold by Blue have to go to players on the second positions there. North Carolina to Green, Montana to Red and Iowa to none of them as they have no pyramids there at all.

NC 15


 

So even now after second re-count neither Red nor Green secured requested 73 electors. It means that the weakest player have to leave the game again. The weakest player is now Red. (The reason may be he has no pyramid in Iowa to win its electors.)

 

 

 

Third re-count

Five states hold by Red will go to Green, if he has there at least one small pyramid. So look: Ohio - yes, Virginia - yes, Nevada - no, Florida - yes, Montana - no. In Florida has Green a middle pyramid, so he secured Florida´s electors.

 

Electors division after third re-count:
