Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Downey's Final Score Hockey.

With our initial release, we offer the following sets:

2013 College- Every Men's and Women's Division 1, 2 and 3 team.

History of the WHA- Every WHA team from 1973-1979.

History of the KHL- Every Kontinental Hockey League Team from 2009 to 2013

As the name implies, this quick play game provides you with a final score for a hockey game. Allowing you to rapidly play games and watch standings unfold before your eyes. However, there is more to the game than just generating scores. There is plenty of excitement and drama along the way, keeping the game play exciting and compelling. You will have late in the game goals, equalizers and fantastic saves.

Each team is rated individually for Offense, Defense, Pressure situations, and Home Ice Advantage. And while there will surely be some surprises along the way, since this is a game, the accuracy of the game will astound you. We also have a normalization system for every team and league we rate, so you can play across seasons to determine the best team of all-time.

Take the ice with Downey’s Final Score Hockey!

Could you explain how this game differs from Ultra Quick Hockey? I'm sure there must be differences, but they seem awfully similar from the description.

This one is my game, so I can do that.

Final Score Hockey is much like what I did with Final Score Soccer. It is a team only game. There are no individual stats. This allows me to create seasons and set like the Olympics and the women's NCAA which can't be done very easy with UQ Hockey.

The game has a much wider rating system, so the results can be fine tuned to each individual league. It also allows me to fine tune to normalization system for cross-era play.

Like my system with UQ Baseball and Final Score Soccer, there are pressure situations which provide drama even for a final score only game.

The Final Score line is really the type of game I enjoy the most. I like standings and finishing complete seasons. With full play games I don't have the time or the patience. With my games, I can knock out a season in a day or two and watch the teams rise and fall in the standings. And that is what this game does.

So, this would be like roll the dice per period to see some scoring progress thru the game or is it roll the dice once for Team A score and roll the dice once for Team Bs score then roll for close game situation rating of team behind to see if they tie it up?..................I would love to see more game like was done with Game Winning Drive Football which has been and still is my number 1 sports board game of alltime. The possession by possession action is great making it more tweener game than full play or the opposite quick play.

I bought the game as I know I was one of those that has been hounding you for the KHL and Olympic sets:) and now I see the rules so that answers my own question. Thank you for doing these.

I know you have the game. But, I will answer for everyone else.

It is not period by period. You may only roll once for each team. There may be more than one roll though in some cases. There are pressure situations, overtimes, and shootouts.

The variety is enough to keep it from just rolling dice. And the drama is there to keep things very entertaining and interesting.

Chris,

FYI. I don't see the 1968 Men'S Olympic hockey tournament teams? Was the data not available so it is not rated or was it a miss on the zip file for the game?

John sent us the data for 1968. It is now included. I just emailed everyone that bought the set the file.

So each set has everything needed for play? No separate game parts needed?

Do you know when 2014 will be out? Also, will it be only available by itself or packaged with another set of seasons? Thanks.
