I think that I know the answer... I'm just not sure I agree with it! [wink] In a game with a friend, we play the first 3 mini-games, primarily for the buying rounds. I suspect that the Dugout cards are not automatically shuffled back into the Lineup at the start of the World Series... but part of me wants a "fresh start" at the start of the series. Correct?

You are right. Play continues without a reshuffle.

But as always, I think, that if you prefer it that way, it is your game.

I don't believe it would mess with the balance too much...

That is really up to you. Many players do not play the first 3 mini games they just do buy rounds without the game. I do like to start without shuffling after that to keep the deck from being too much of a mismatch for that first game but it is up to you. Have fun!!!

If shuffling before the world series I'd recommend keeping the cards purchased on the proceeding buy round separate, and then drawing them first.

Mark is absolutely correct that you want to have your new players available!

I also agree that at home you should play the way that suits you best.

For Tournaments, we insist on shuffles whenever you engage a new opponent.

Go Wiffle!

What??!! Play the way I want to?? Blasphemy!! [wink] Designers/developers are much more familiar with the game... so I always want to play the way they intended. My friend and I are both baseball fans (my friend actually played college baseball) and we played our first game with a real life Cubs/Dodgers baseball game in the background. As fans... we both had a little trouble dealing with multiple hits on a single "player" card (I had the advantage of playing a solitaire game first to learn the game)... but had a very good time once we got the hang of it. My question arose because, purely by the luck of the 6 card draw in the last pre-Series game, I was able to draft an amazing card to the top of my Lineup for the start of the World Series that my opponent could not match. It just struck me that that was too much of an advantage for something that had little to do with the skill of my play.
