The first of many videos is up on Kick Starter. Ralph and I play the first game of a match using the starting decks. Enjoy.

I'm glad I got to see this. It dispelled any inclination I had to buy it.

It looks to be a fun game, I suppose, but uses baseball as a theme for cardplay. There's no place in the play of the game to use any actual, baseball strategy.

Thanks for the video. It makes me want to play right now. I am really excited for your game.

Although, I am bummed out with the starting teams of NY, SF, LA, and Boston. All big market teams I can't stand. Why not Detroit or Chicago? Why is it always the east or west coast teams that get all the love? The midwest has great baseball franchises too!

Here here, yea the Twins are essentially a professional Farm Team (or that seems to be our local joke we tell ourselves to keep our chins up...since whenever we trade away or let someone go they end up going far in the playoffs or winning the series).

Edit: I backed this day one still

Hi, Darrell. I got to play a full game of this (against Ralph) over the weekend at ConnCon and my experience was the opposite of your takeaway here.

The game *reeks* of baseball. It's not a pitch by pitch sim, but in our contest there were games that were dominated by pitchers and games where we let the sluggers hit it out, games full of late inning heroics, even extra innings. The player decisions dictate which way each game, each series plays out.

The narrative is absolutely one of the national pastime that we know and love.

As ever, YMMV.

Minnesota would be good too. You could have Kirby Puckett and Jack Morris to be Jack Puckett for a natural player. Come on Mike Fitzgerald and Eagle games, give us some midwest teams like Detroit, Chicago, and/or Minnesota!

Detroit and Chicago are where some of the best Free Agents in the game are from. The starting teams are all Rookies and Veterans. The best players in the game come from other teams. Check out the player card profiles and you will see the other cities represented.
