Baseball Strategy Games

Postby KolbSaves » Sat May 14, 2005 3:05 am

Does anyone play any like Strat o Matic or the couple card games that are out there? I think there's a new one they're advertising isn't there? And there's that game with the figures...what's that called?

Basically I want you to tell me about the experiences you've had with baseball strategy games and which ones you recommend because I'd like to try one or two.

I used to play strat-o-matic but haven't for years.
I think they have even gone to an online game now.
If someone were to raise enough interest into a league, I would play. If ya check their site I beleive they have all the info.

You know, baseball stategy games that you play with stats and dice (or something that replaces dice). It's like playing MVP '05 on manage mode except more minute.

MLB Showdown is a card game I tried out.

It's from the makers of Magic: The Gathering.

It's kinda fun but it can be costly.
