Thinking about getting this game but the deluxe copy is twice the price of the base game without the expansions so I'm wondering how good the base game on it's own is?

Base game is fine on its own. Although I have the Deluxe version, I haven't added any of the extra free agent packs in yet - but will be doing soon.

Also seen the super deluxe version on either games quest or board game monkey for about £50.

Same as Garry... I have Deluxe and haven't added the 5 expansions yet. I am 9 games in and loving it, both solo and 2 player (haven't had a chance to try 4 player yet, despite many longing looks from others in the game group). The base game is great as is and everyone who has played it loved it and either wanted to play it again or just ordered a copy.

I'm hoping the extra teams get to the UK soon, or I'm going to have to order direct from Eagle-Gryphon, as one of my groups loves tournament play and an eight player tourney would be great.

It is great with just the base, plenty of options, plenty of gameplay.

It is a great game period/full stop. I have been telling people to get the Super Deluxe because I expect most will really like the game and want to play with the expansions as soon as possible. I think the game is richer with the expansions, but you will still have a great time with the base game. And the expansions will arrive in the UK at some point.

I have the deluxe edition with all expansions but after half a dozen very fun games, I haven't added any of the expansions.

Plenty of fun just in the base set!

Ditto what everyone else has said. The base game is excellent, the expansions just add more variety and some new wrinkles.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments about Baseball Highlights 2045.

The game is selling so well we are going to another reprint. Nothing new this go around; however, these should arrive in a few short months and inject more games into the pipeline for those looking for a copy.

I am already working with Mike for new material in terms of Expansions and Starter Teams for the next go around after this.

Best regards,
Ralph

I have just the base game and its perfect as it is. It has great replayability and great balance. The balance is so good that I almost don't want to add expansions. What I mean is, I really enjoyed Star Realms but the expansions just added swinginess and broke the balance. I don't want to see this happen with Baseball Highlights 2045. (I'm not saying that's what the expansions do--I don't know--I'm just saying that's what I'm afraid of.)

I'm very happy with only the base game.

The game is great for me because I can play it with my dad, my best friend and my nephew. Its strategic enough to be fun for me and simple enough for a non gamer to grasp after a single game. I always look forward to playing and to have someone who doesn't play games often ask to play it again and again is such a rare and fantastic thing.
