Baseball

My wife asked that I share my most recent defeat at her hands.


I picked up a bunch of 2000 and 2001 MLB Showdown cards recently because a) it's a great game and b) my kids could stand to learn a thing or two about baseball. I played a very basic game with my bride she walloped me, 9-5. Beginner's luck.

  1. So you mean that once the beginner's luck wins off you'll be losing 9-1? ;-)

    1. Oops, 'wears off' that should be! Hope you enjoy many more such games :)

    2. You wound me, sir! I'm still, and shall remain indefinitely, the reigning Comic Box MLB Showdown League Champ!

      I bought enough cards to handle small league. Once I get my wife and kids trained up, I hope to be able to run us through a short season.

    3. I used to love playing a friend's home-made solitaire test cricket game. From about 1987 through to 1990 we would play out whole seasons on it. Marvellous prep for becoming a wargamer, so I can certainly understand the appeal of baseball games!

      Cheers,
      Aaron
