Hi!

I thought i know the rules so far. But then the card in the title of the Forum appears.

The card effect:
Leadoff: If this is your first card played, Homerun


No Hit Boxes


My question:
What sense has this card? I mean if this is my first played card, there are no batters or base runners? Why i should play/buy this card? Nobody can get to the home base?


Thanks for answers

It's an immediate home run, so you score a run as soon as you play it.

Thanks Martin.

To further clarify the card, if you play this as your first card in the mini-game as either home team or visiting team, you will get an immediate home run - score 1 run on the Runs Scored Track.

If you do not use it as your first play, then you can use it as a Pinch Hit opportunity (it has a PH symbol).

Otherwise, no use at all!

Go Wiffle!

One of my favorite cards. It also gives you the excuse to sing this song to bother the people you're playing with a little.



You should also double-check your understanding of all of the other Lead Off cards (mostly singles - there's also a Lead Off double) to make sure you're understanding how to use them properly. I have a feeling there may be a problem there.

Hey! Why not get the app to straighten out all the rules questions? I'm not German, but my family is from Austria so you would almost be supporting a fellow "landsmann".

Wow thanks for this ultra fast replys!

So an immediate Home Run don't need a placed figure?


(It is really hard to get into the rules, I think. Are there any other little mistakes often done? And wich mistakes are this?)

When you play Start Up, you get a point right away. You don't need runners/pawns.

The #1 biggest mistake that everyone seems to make is on Clutch hits. The baserunners always move +1 base even if they are slow (white).
