The current Play
Board and full Rare Play Book are built into the game and
youll see the same results as if playing the board game.
We include both 6x6
and 1x6 (tall) pitcher cards to play either way, as in the
board game (including a unique new "hybrid" style of play that
displays the familiar Tall Pitcher Cards behind the Batter
Cards, but the pitcher's grade changes with the roll of the
blue die (with the 6x6 card ratings in background mode).
This option, only possible with a PC, combines the simplicity
of using the tall pitcher cards with the added precision and
variety of outcomes of the expanded 6x6 pitcher grades!
When you play the game on your PC or laptop, you'll...

If you want the
tactile feel of 'rolling the bones', you can roll real dice on
your tabletop and easily enter each dice roll into the program
with a few key strokes, then watch the action unfold!
You can play the board
game as usual with your
cards and dice at your PC, and use the PC game as your
personal statistician! We've built in a simple-to-use
play scoring system so you can roll the dice, look up the
charts manually and key in the play results (or key in the
play-by-play later, after manually rolling the game).
With this option, the
PC game compiles all your stats (and even play by play) while
you enjoy the board game as always!

out a pre-filled

After you play the game, you can come back to the PC to
manually enter the box score (including fielding stats, if you
track them). The program then updates all your players'
stats after each game! You can even do this for a series
of games, first printing out your pre-filled scoresheets,
playing the games, then coming back to the PC to enter player
stats and game summaries for a series of games.

"what if" replay, you
can now allow the computer (and luck!) to determine injuries
and make roster moves automatically, instead of using
real-life lineups and transactions. In this mode, you
set the roster size limits before starting the replay and the
computer follows these guidelines for the season. You
can still control one or more teams' roster moves, deciding
call-ups and roster moves on the fly, in response to injuries.
