The Kickstarter for the introductory version of BH:2045, titled Spring Training, starts next week. It's a slimmed down version ideal for introducing new players to this wonderful game.

Ralph Anderson, Baseball Highlights 2045 Commissioner wrote:
We will also be introducing an introductory edition called Baseball Highlights 2045: Spring Training. Look for the kickstarter in March. This will be a stripped down, inexpensive version of the game to attract new players. There are no changes to the rules. In fact, we have almost completed a complete rewrite of the rules to accommodate the many FAQs and new immediate actions that have come along as well as to make it more friendly to new players without any background in baseball terminology. We plan for it to included a detailed play-by-play walk through of an entire mini-game. These rules will be in future printings of all versions of the game and will be available for download.


This edition isn't aimed at Baseball Highlights veterans, but the Kickstarter will have options to add new expansions. No word on whether the new rule book will also be available, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm really looking forward to see what'll be available for those of use who have the game and all the non-team expansions. I really like the game and want more .

Do we need to back the slimmed down version to get the other materials?

I second this request. I am running out of room in my box, and would gladly pay for a bigger storage solution!

If I only plan to play solo, this will be the version to get? I will be able to get everything from his big brother, but not play with more than 2players,right?

Also, how much cards it will have? (Want to order sleeves =P)

I'm also hoping for some kind of expansion teams bundle and a big box for all of it. If we don't get it I'll at least pick up the small expansions.

Will the Kickstarter include the Original game as well? I haven't been able to get my hands on this, so now would be a perfect time to do that!

Nice one. In my opinion, if you forget the Coaches set, all of the player and team expansions are really cool and add a lot thematically and in the case of the player cards, also to the gameplay.

Not 100% convinced on the literal game-changing ballpark expansion cards due up in the next release (I played them at a recent UK convention) - as they make things harder for some players to follow, plus leads to more 'annoying' card effects.

That being said, I'll still get them. If nothing else, they are baseball related and alter the experience to keep things even fresher and try to bear the rules in mind I guess. Plus, they're always optional. Same as the Coaches set. Which is fun and interesting, but a bit too powerful. Plus, not really suitable for solo play which I love.

Anyhow, here's to the 15th March and the KS campaign!

I agree on the Coaches and I'm also not sold on the Ball Parks. The simplicity and smooth gameplay is what I love most about this game, and those just add extra steps.

Hah Jason - those 2 sentences sum up my feelings perfectly. Much better than my mini rant. It's been a long child-focused day!

Got a start time yet? Some of us Geeks like to plan our days around KS launches.

You don't get the "Superbacker" badge by showing restraint...whistle

Me three... seem to find myself in the same KS comments sections and backer lists as you two guys as well. I'll blame you both when the wife/bank manager finally accepts that the games arriving are not all "...from Kickstarter campaigns I ordered back in 2015".

Thanks Jason B for the video. Loved it. I was in Florida 2 weeks ago for Spring Training. Saw 4 games while down there. Made me pull out my Baseball Highlights: 2045 game and solitaire it. One of my favorite times of the year, when all things are possible, including the hopes of a run for the pennant by September.
