4-6 - Your Michigan
356 5/7/2020 6:21:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message OK, I'll play again.

No preference for either team.
355 5/7/2020 11:32:00 AM 2nd Half Underdog Message I played so many baseball games through the years I don't know how I missed Statis Pro

I played SOM hockey. I liked the late 80's early 90's as well because thats when the LA Kings had a decent team and some exciting players.

Strat O Matic does offer computer versions of their games if you are interested.

Do you want to play again? I was thinking of a replay of the 1989 final of Seton Hall vs Michigan.


354 5/7/2020 7:43:00 AM 2nd Half Favorite Message In Strat-O-Matic, I have played the hockey game a lot, and a little bit of the baseball game. (I mostly played Statis-Pro baseball.)

I have a couple of hockey seasons from the late 80's / early 90's, when the NHL games were all high-scoring affairs. Nothing more recent than that.

I have a few baseball sets from the 80's and 90's. I only played a few games over the years. My face-to-face partners where my brother and and my friend, and we just always played Statis-Pro. Even though we had basically all the table-top baseball games, APBA, Dynasty League, Pursue the Pennant, etc.
353 5/6/2020 3:51:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message Yes it is a fun little game. You make just enough decisions to make it interesting and itís plays quick. They sure provide you with a lot of teams.

Did you ever play Strat o matic games?
352 5/6/2020 3:35:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message I like it.

I always played the Statis-Pro Basketball Game, where it is play-by-play, and all players are rated individually for shooting, passing, rebounding, defense, etc. I didn't think I would like this type of game because of my fondness for Statis-Pro.

But I have to admit I liked it. There was enough strategy to keep my involved, so it wasn't simply throwing dice and hoping for luck. I actually got to make decisions.

And it is quick.
351 5/6/2020 3:26:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message ok, that's game

UNC Charlotte wins,

So what are your overall thoughts of the game?

ok have to use a TO
348 5/6/2020 3:22:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message That's a 16-5 scoring, unless you want to use your TO.

Actually, I think you drop to a D for the WORKING IT INSIDE, so the score is 16-4.

304 5/6/2020 1:14:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message This is the website that lists a lot of March Madness information:
*************************************************
Boardgame Players Association
2019-2020 March Madness
PBeM Championship Tournament
*************************************************

For now, I would just use the rules we have been playing with. We can review these later.
303 5/6/2020 1:05:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message Based on what you saw on line both your fast break points and the clutch free throw points should count.

Since weíve already scored LF that nullifies the controlling the bossís so fast break counts

The clutch free throw adds 4 points for each foul on opposing position. That player had a foul on him in the first half so thatís 4 points. If he has a foul on him in the second half as well that that would be 8 points
302 5/6/2020 12:54:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Change Clock From 9 to 8
301 5/6/2020 12:54:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Change Score From 63 to 68
300 5/6/2020 12:53:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message So, even if your CLUTCH FREE THROWS counts, my player still didn't foul you, so I guess there are no free throws.

And my FAST BREAK points are cancelled.

So I score 5 points and you score 7 points.
299 5/6/2020 12:53:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message Ok, letís go with whAt you found.


298 5/6/2020 12:48:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message I don't know how "official" this is, and it has a lot of other FQA's listed on the site. I just copied the two were are dealing with now.

For now, I am OK with your reading of the situation, as you have more experience with the game, and these situations have probably come up before. I was just raising questions based upon how I was reading the rules. No biggee.
297 5/6/2020 12:44:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message 14.3.6 & 14.3.7) Can a "Controlling The Boards" and "Boxing Out" affect other positions before the position they are played on is resolved? After?
A.) Yes. No.
296 5/6/2020 12:44:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message I went searching around the internet looking for some March Madness Q&A, and here are some snippets I found for what the BPA uses:
***************************************************
14.1.4 & 14.2.5) The Box and One coaching card says that it voids all Offense cards, while the Clutch Free Throws Offense card says that it is never voided. Which holds true when both affect the same position?
A.) The Clutch Free Throws card in never voided, not even by the Box and One card.
295 5/6/2020 12:21:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message Yes, that card still counts

The clutch free throw card would have been valid had you not played box and one.

Clutch free throws is a card you would generally play in the second half on a player who has a foul on him.
294 5/6/2020 12:17:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message But the LF position has already been scored, and so those cards were discarded afterwards. So then can that card still be considered in play?
293 5/6/2020 12:14:00 PM 2nd Half Favorite Message I score 8 points

You score 7 points

And there are no Free Throws since I didn't foul you, correct?
292 5/6/2020 12:14:00 PM 2nd Half Underdog Message Box in one says voids all offense cards

Clutch free throws is an offensive card so it should be voided

Also, my left forward played Controlling the boards which voudscyour fast break card

Your player is still -1 letter grade from first half foul trouble

I am -1 from box in one

You are -1 from tight man to man
