Campaign video.


Game demo uisng the 1884 season.


Pine Tar Baseball - 1973
(PTB), designed by James Formo, is a fun and fast paced dice and card game for 1 or 2 players that brings the 1973 baseball season to life. Ninety percent of plays are resolved in 1 die roll and no play takes more than 2 rolls. A game of Pine Tar Baseball - 1973 can be played in about 18-30 minutes.

The 1973 season is the 4th season being released for Pine tar Baseball. Previous seasons include; 2014, 1884 and 1889. The 1973 season is an intriguing one. Five teams all finished within just 5 games of one another for the NL East title. A replay using Pine Tar Baseball could see any one of those teams taking the division.

Then 1973 was the year that Hank Aaron finished the season just 2 home runs shy of Babe Ruth's record. Aaron would break Ruth's record in April of the following year. Using PTB gives you the opportunity to replay Hank Aaron's historic chase of Base Ruth's all time home run record.

Pine Tar Baseball - 1973 will feature all 24 teams from 1973. Each team has a roster made up of 27 players. There will be stats for 648 players with a chance to increase this amount through stretch goals. This is why reward levels are higher for 1973 than they were for the 1884 season. More teams, along with larger rosters makes for over twice as many player stats.
