Fast, fun and dynamic sport game.

First of all, I have to say that I don’t like to watch baseball, actually I don’t even know all the game rules. Just to know, I’m Brazilian and we don’t have baseball teams here. I do love sports and, of course, board games.

Usually I don’t like sports games because they tend to be boring and slow paced. The big home run in this game was the Highlights ideia. We are not simulating a full baseball game, we are reproducing the television highlights. Take off all the boring innings and go straight through the action. Thats the real Home Run.

So, in this board game, the whole baseball match happens in a six card duel. Each gamer start with a starter team, with rookies and veterans players. After each match, gamers could draft better players (Free Agents) and improve their team. After a few matches (usually three) and respectively buy rounds, gamers set to World Series. First to win four matchs is the World Series Champion, the best baseball team of all time (until the next season).

The whole game (buy rounds and World Series) lasts least than an hour for two gamers. With four gamers (9 game season with playoffs) lasts around two hours. You could also play the solo game, that lasts around 40 minutes.

I want to play it everytime I can. I really love it.
