This game combines two of my favorite things:Baseball and Deck-building games. The idea is original and the game play is fun once you get the hang of it. The one problem is the limited scope. You are pretty much limited to choice of 4 cities and a maximum season of 7 games. More cities, more games and a greater variety of cards would make the game better and increase replay value . But, as it stands, it is still a fun game and very entertaining.
Card game itself is great, but the game play is very limited. Just repeating a 7 game series over and over, seeing the same cards. Needs more cards, and a longer tournament of play where you face different teams. The draft system for replenishing your deck is also strange, when I tried to save my points to get the higher ranked cards it didn't seem to work, but somehow my opponent kept getting them.
This is a great game. Reminds me of Base Wars the Cyberball spin on baseball from Sega Genesis which I'm sure inspired this take on futuristic baseball. I'm not a big baseball fan but this game is a favorite and is quite fun. I'll get the expansions too probably. I would like to see a Cyberball football type version of this if possible and consult me for ideas as I will get a portion of the sales for the idea lol. Cyberball was a futuristic football video game with robots and cyborgs playing football etc. Base Wars was a baseball version of Cyberball also made by Atari and was on Nintendo and Genesis. It had violent robots and cyborgs playing baseball. This game is a better version of Base Wars that's more accessible and plays well. I want more teams and more expansions. I also think an actual season play mode would be fun. Or online head to head against other players woild be fantastic
Great game, the actual physical board game version is better if you play with another person. I know that this is accurate to the board game because I have both, but this is waaaaaay too hard!!! So far I've only been able to win a WS on Standard with very easy difficulty level. Versus AI I'm pretty sure is impossible to win against and any levels beyond very easy on Standard is next to impossible to win a World Series against as well. I don't need to win all of the time but losing every time isn't worth it either
I heard good things about the game and this app from BGG and grabbed it when it was on sale around Christmas. It may seem like it's a bit primitive but it's not... It's truly a good game. You may think it needs more animation, etc but it doesn't. It's a card game. Now if I could just win more consistently...
The board game is a really fun game and this app can be a great way to feel out the mechanics so you can be even more ready for your next physical game. The app, however, needs a lot more polish to be a considered a good mobile game in its own right. The look of the app is very amateurish design-wise, especially with some of the buttons looking stretched out and downright ugly. I really like the game and its mechanics and I think a good app is a great way to expose people to it. Unfortunately, I think this app might turn a lot of people off.
