I really like this game. It plays relatively fast. Only the draft each season takes any time. There are tough decisions and rewards for good ones. You get the feel of a college coach, not that I have been one. But with this game, you can at least imagine it.

This is a very playable and interesting game simulating not just a college basketball season, but a career, dare I say, Dynasty! All that for free. Nice.

Nice that you can complete a season in minutes and a coaching career in under an hour.

Great game that feels like College Basketball. That is, if I actually know what that feels like.

Great print and play. Really great game even if it wasn't. You don't need to be a fan of basketball to understand and enjoy this game.

Rated a 7.5 (self promotion) primarily due to the fact it is a relatively unique way of handling a basketball season/tournament, while still delivering a fun and playable game. This has the feel of a eurogame, while presenting a traditional sports topic.

I have to admit, I don't enjoy basketball all that much. But I do love Sports management games (ie:Any game in which you take control of a team) and this takes the cake for being deceptively simple yet deep. It's a lot of fun and I highly recommend printing it, well worth the ink and time.

Wow, this really does give a great dynasty feeling, and it's just what I was looking for. I have no interest in college basketball, but I love sports dynasties as a theme, and this really captures it. Meaningful decisions on who to start, and who to keep starting, and that creates a lot of fun.

All this, and I've only played the solo game.

played a half season solo - I really like the victory point mechanic. Would like to see some more "in season" strategy somehow.

Enjoyable pnp game although one that I've only played solo so far. Seems pretty well balanced too as young stars rise, flourish and for a couple of seasons things are great before the ebb and flow requires you to rebuild. Good game.
First game - as Florida won three championships with 7 tournament appearances.

Might have been a little too easy when I printed it out awhile ago, but it may have changed since then.

Interessante progetto di gioco ambientato sul basket del college americano. Il tutto simula il lavoro di manager di una squadra con la scelta dei giocatori e il relativo andamento durante la stagione con la possibilità di aggiudicarsi il titolo NCAA. Idea simpatica che secondo me avrebbe bisogno di qualche limatura e di una componentistica più accattivante.

Great game and easy to print and play. I've only played once with myself, but see a lot of potential with playing with more players. Can't wait to try it with some of my friends.

Rating based on version 1. Game is methodical and has a strong, strong, strong rich-get-richer element. Even using the "balancing" draft rule, it's strong. Did I mention that it has a runaway leader problem? Anyway, I'm sure it can be fixed with some randomization in the progression to the title. In a 4-player game, I'd think that one of the four teams should win the championship once, maybe twice, in a 12-season game. In our game currently ongoing, it looks like it'll be 12 championships amongst those 4 teams (probably 2 of those teams).
