Anyone familiar with these dice simulation games?

1. Extra Innings (Baseball simulation game produced in the 70's and 80's)

2. Bball (Basketball simulation game from the 80"s)

After years and years of trial and error, I have finally figured out how to re-create any former team from the past (NBA and MLB). I have complete updated rules for both games.

I have played many different dice simulation games over the years, including Strat-o-Matic. My versions of the above listed 2 games are easier to play and more accurate than even Strato-O-Matic!

I am just starting my business and think I will start Marketing the two games these ways.

1. Extra Innings (Basic Package would include a complete set of rules and team charts for the 2012 Final 4 teams (Both teams in the AL and NL Championships from this year (teams to be determined)

2. Bball (Basic Package would include a complete set of rules, team player charts for the 2010-11 East and West Championship teams - Mia, Chi, Dall, & Okl City)

If anyone is interested or just wants to talk dice simulation games please let me know. You can post here, email, or PM me.

Even if you have never played dice games. It is not too late to start! Let me know what teams you want to play and I am able to re-create all NBA and MLB teams from past years.

I am currently re-playing the 97 World Series between the Cleveland Indians and Florida Marlins and the 2010 Playoff Series between the Celtics and Cavs. These games are fun to play by yourself or you and your friends could start a league.

Thanks,

Jay (jaybvlsports@yahoo.com)

I'm confused. You've taken existing dice games and figured out how to make custom teams? Or you've created new dice games?

Either way, you should name your product something different than what already exists. You might also need to get licensed by the league and/or the teams you want to use in your product.

I can make custom teams of games that are not marketed anymore.

Good point about needing to get licensed by the league and/or the teams if want to use in your product.

Not sure what to do?

So you're talking about fan-made expansions to other people's games. There are a number of long and useful threads on BGG regarding copyright and such that might be worth reading. Speaking generally, though, if you're creating a derivative work, the owners of the original work can come after you. The relationship between publishers and fans being what it is, though, I haven't seen a lot of active enforcement against people who are giving away their expansions.

BGG is mostly a forum where people share that kind of stuff. You might look at the forums for the games you're working on and see what's already there. Maybe join the discussion, and share with other fans some of your ideas for getting more enjoyment out of the game.
