World Series: Game 1

I’ve gone ahead and started up my 8-team tournament with teams from the 2010-11 NHL season.  Should provide a link to that soon, but I will point out that I had a good long discussion about this on the Strat Fan Forums.

This is all best pushed off to another gaming-related blog I host, so I won’t pepper you with too much info.  In short, the hockey game is my 2nd favorite Strat product, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t several changes that I think need to be made to the game engine.

I still plan on this ’84 MLB project being the focus, but with baseball season having just ended, I wouldn’t mind dabbling a little on the side with the NHL thing.

In another gaming news, the fabulous Jeff Polman (Google him) tends to run a 16-team tournament every fall using teams from the past season and looks for folks to be in charge of a team – setting rotations, bullpen assignments, lineups, etc.

Last year I got in and ran the Washington Nationals and won the whole thing, earning myself a $25 gift certificate to Strat-o-Matic.  Woot!

This year I’m back to defend my title, taking over the 2013 Pittsburgh Pirates.

Games kick off next weekend and I still need to put my roster directions together for Jeff.  It’s part of my “to do” list this weekend.

This week’s video shows how the final play of Game 1 of the 1984 World Series played out.

Highlights include Vin Scully on the call and one mustachioed ballplayer flipping a ball to another.
