I'm increasingly convinced my beloved Mavericks were fortunate to make it to the finals and do not anticipate they will make it in my replay, but I must carry on. I also do not see Miami as the front runner. They may beat Chicago and/or Boston to get out of the East, but San Antonio appears to have the best team. I figure Denver will fade when Anthony moves to New York. LA, Houston, Dallas, and OKC could still make things interesting. I should know in about 5 or 6 years.

My impressions of the game itself have improved. I love the flavor, but do think the scoring is running high. Maybe I should stall more often with a lead, but I don't think so the stall rule leads to too many turnovers - I mostly use it to get the last shot of the quarter. I also feel the fastbreak produces too much of an advantage, but maybe I'm trying too hard to find an explanation for Denver's crazy numbers - I keep thinking they will slow down.

Impressive that you have the enthusiasm and endurance to persevere through the schedule as far as you have. My patience gets tested in games between sub .500 teams that I have no affiliation with.

Replay seems to produce accurate stats based on the small sample I see in you posts. How long does a typical game take to play while recording stats?

The scoring runs a little high, but I have cut back on the amount of time I run the fastbreak and my results are approaching normal. I usually play one quarter at a time in a little under 30 minutes for each and then updating the stats in Excel takes another 20-30 minutes. I'd say right at 2 hours/game.

I strive for 1 game/day and 200 games/year. Each morning before work, I play a quarter, usually the 1st quarter. Not all games are exciting, but there are usually elements within each game that liven things up. The rest system, injury charts, and especially the rare play charts always contribute to the variety. Today's game is Toronto v. New Orleans. NO should win, especially with Amir Johnson out for Toronto. No matter what, Chris Paul is always fun. Yesterday's game featured Derick Rose making a late run to eventually fall short against Memphis 100-101 including a clutch 2$ shot, a steal off the press, a rare play steal result where Mayo throws it away, only to end on a last second missed three point attempt by Rose.

A criticism leveled by a fellow BGGer when I began this project has long stuck in my craw. He characterized Replay as a game for 10-yr olds and recommended S-O-M. I love S-O-M for the many years of enjoyment it provided in the 20th century. I am certain I played over 2000 games of Strat in my youth, including the older red-boxed version, but now Replay is my game of choice. I read something said about History Maker Baseball that solidified my preference. The reviewer spoke to the enjoyment level of the game, emphasizing the word game, not simulation. S-O-M might actually be a better simulation, at least there is a double team rule (which I wish I could figure out one I liked for Replay). Yes, I want accurate statistical elements, but I also want the feel, the excitement that Replay generates. I'll stick with Replay - it is a great game!
