This bundle contains 2 tabletop baseball sims. Both Pine Tar Baseball and the 'Old Timers' edition of TTL Baseball are included in one specially priced package. The box used currently contains the same design as for the Pine Tar game. It simply contains the contents for both games.
'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 22 minutes. The first few games played typically take 30 minutes while learning the rules.
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 is for 1 to 2 players and is highly suitable for solitaire play.
TTL features base stealing, squeeze plays, maximum pitch counts, pitch guessing, defensive depth adjustments for infield and outfield. The advanced games pitching system is perhaps the most accurate available. Optional rules limit use on how often each pitcher may be used within any 5 game period. Bullpen managements are included to keep track of pitcher use. There are also ballpark ratings that make parks either allow more or less home runs just as in reality. A rare play table accounts for almost every possible play possible in baseball. ie. triple plays, double steals, power outages, rain delays leading to arm stiffness for starting pitchers, outfielders colliding....etc.
The Pine Tar/True to Life bundle includes:
*Appearance/color of dice are subject to change base on availability.
