I have the deluxe version of the game, and I am interested to have at least 4 more unique teams (to no repeat 2 teams, for example team 5 and team 12 is the same).

Are worth the extra teams for solo play? Not only for myself, also as IA.

I got them all because I love the game and want to own all of it. I plan on picking up all 8 of the new teams as well. I got to play them in April with Mike Fitzgerald at a Con when they were in prototype, so it feels kind of cool to see how they turned out. Amazon sells them in bundles do you don't need to track them down individually.

As an added surprising bonus, I found that having all the teams makes it easier to find people willing to play, as they're more likely to try it if you have the 2045 version of their favorite team. I know half of them are copies, but it truly doesn't matter to baseball fans.

I request the creation of a Montreal Expos team for the game : every time the team wins, dump all your good cards and get worse players. (Yeah i still resent how they destroyed my local team).

They've done a great job of making every team unique. I've made it a point to grab one of each number. If the prices were more reasonable I'd collect them all for completionist's sake.

I like the extra teams. I've also played 8 players a few times with it. I just wished they were a little cheaper.

I was wrong because I thought that in solo play I pick a team for IA.
After reading the rules I noticed that the IA team is obtained from Free Agent pool.

Anyway, I think that would be interesting to have more teams (not all, just the unique and no repetitive teams in abilities) because with some teams would be more easy than others.

What do you mean with A's team?

I am considering to pick every unique variant team (one of two), I mean 1 and 9 is the same team with different name and I will pick one. With it I will have different team to try different solo games.

I think it is the best investment, do you agree?

So many people think that being bigger makes you a better person.

I'm (probably) bigger than you, but that doesn't make me any better. It's what's inside that counts.

The Oakland Athletics in the San Francisco Bay area (California) are widely known as the A's. mb mb

For people who are mentioning specific team names.

You'll should take note of something on all of these expansion teams so far. Only the city names are mentioned, and not the team names. This is a clever move to avoid potential licensing costs.

So, if you are looking for the Brewers, you're actually after the "Milwaukee" team.
