$ 34.99 was $ 39.99

'Pine Tar' is a baseball game that was created based on feedback from a survey I did on players of the table top genre. It has a concise 11 page rule book with 5 more pages of optional rules. Pine Tar can be learned in one sitting and average 9 inning games take 25-30 minutes. The first few games played typically take 30 minutes while learning the rules. The table below gives an overview of Pine Tars features.

The game is for 1 to 2 players and is highly suitable for solitaire play. Every game asset is printed in full color.

This game features base stealing, squeeze plays, and maximum innings pitched. In addition to pitcher home/away splits, there are also splits for when a pitcher faces the batting order for the 3rd time.

Each team comes with 4 player sheets. There are 27 players on each teams roster. The 'stats' for each player are not individually cut. The 4 sheets include the suggested starters, pitchers, bench players, and an 'extras' sheet that has 4 players. Each team has 3 suggested lineups. 

The game box includes:

    • 3 ten sided dice* ( one each of red, white, & blue) and 1 six sided die.
    • 3 game pawns, and 1 disk marker
    • 4 blank score sheets and 2 scoring pencils.
    • Player sheets for 4 different teams**.
    • 1 game mat.
    • 1 main instruction manual.
    • 1 card stock sheet of game tables printed front and back.

*Appearance/color of dice are subject to change based on availability.

*Appearance of cards varies depending on which season and teams current version ships with.

#Note that the game box art is now printed on 9" x 6" glossy paper instead of the original 11' x 8.5".

**The 4 teams will either be from 1960, 1973 or 1982, depending on what is available.
