Why It's On The List
  • It captures the feel of a baseball game - and does so in 15 minutes (or less). The Out of the Box production is very nice as well.
Tips & Tricks:
    • Use Fly Out cards when there aren't any runners on base.
    • There's luck of the draw - of course - but proper card management and taking the right risks also helps. And... it's only 15 minutes long.
    • This is a tremendous filler game.
    • This game lends itself to playoffs/tournaments at gaming weekends - games are short enough to be held between "real" games.
    • The story behind Harry's Grand Slam Baseball is fascinating... listen to Mark Johnson's "Boardgames To Go" podcast on it for more information.

    99.9% sure Fly out only advances man on third. So, use those Fly Out cards as long as there's no opponent on third.
