Been a While

Just checking in with an update.

Been laying a bit lower as of late, though I have been plenty busy in the hobby.

Here are all the projects I am currently logging time on…

  • 1984 MLB
    • A 64-game replay using all 26 teams, played with Strat-O-Matic Cards & Dice. I started this towards the beginning of 2016 and it is nearing completion. I’ve rolled 774 of the 832 games in the regular season schedule, which is good for 93% of the project. Hoped to get it done by year’s end and that won’t happen, but it’s still good progress.
  • 1901 MLB
    • A full season replay using APBA Cards & Dice. This is early going, but I still re-visit it from time to time.
  • 2004 NFL
    • A full season replay using Strat-O-Matic Cards & Dice. Just started this this fall and, gotta’ say, pleasantly surprised. Thought it would take too long to roll games and I’d lose interest, but the opposite has happened. I’m half-way through Week 2 of the season and sometimes would rather roll these games than the 1984 MLB project, but I don’t want to flake on that thing. It’s so close to wrapping up, that I just have to hammer away.
  • 1966 NFL
    • A team replay of the Green Bay Packers using Strat-O-Matic PC. I’m off to a 3-0 start with one amazing come-from-behind victory in there. Enjoying it.
  • 1997-98 NBA
    • A replay of the postseason using Strat-O-Matic Cards & Dice. Haven’t played this since last winter and need to get back into it. So far I had played 2 games for each team in the postseason.
  • 2012-13 NHL
    • A full season replay using Strat-O-Matic Cards & Dice. This is going way too slow. Again, other projects seem to get in the way, but I really enjoy Strat Hockey.

And this doesn’t include other projects I intend to be running right now…  I’d like to get another team replay using Diamond Mind Baseball going. I’d like to get a team replay using Strat-O-Matic Basketball for PC going. I’ve got some other things that I’ve been play-testing that I’d like to dive into more.

There’s just not enough time to get to it all.

I may be stretching myself a bit thin with all of these projects!

Hope everybody is finding time for everything.

  1. Are you a Delphi Forum member? If so, do you have a Delphi handle? I’m a member of Strat-O-Matic Gamer Forum.
    Thanks,
    Brad.

  2. Quick question. When playing a tournament using teams from various eras, some of which used DHs while others did not, how do you resolve that issue? Do you force the DH using teams to drop the DH, or vice versa?

    1. It’s never come up. I’ve never done something like that.
      I imagine, however, that I’d probably play by home team rules. Baseball teams have rosters that are constructed based on the knowledge of whether or not they are playing their games with a DH. You see it all the time in the interleague era, for example, where a NL team is off to play a series in an AL park and they make a corresponding roster move to account for the change.
      So it wouldn’t be fair to teams that were constructed for DH play to all of a sudden not be allowed to use a DH.
      And, similarly, it wouldn’t be fair to teams that were constructed around the idea of the pitcher needing to bat to now say they are going to use a DH.
      The only fair way I can see would be to make it go by the rules of the home team.
