And while there will surely be some surprises along the way, since this is a game, after all, the accuracy of the game will astound you. We also have a normalization system for every team and season we rate, so you can play across seasons to determine the best team of all-time.

  2016 NBA and WNBA Released for UQ Pro Basketball
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2016 NBA and WNBA E-Books for Ultra Quick Pro Basketball.

The E-Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_11_152

The ratings are offered as an E-Book, since they comprise of one printed sheet and the shipping cost for one sheet doesn't make a lot of sense. If you need a printed sheet, drop me an email, and we will work something out.

Ultra Quick Pro Basketball is really two games in one.

We offer you the familiar method employed in Ultra Quick College Hoops, which resolves a game in two rolls of the dice, and a quarter-by-quarter method, which closely resembles the method employed in Ultra Quick Hockey.  The Quarter-by-Quarter method has provisions for "Big Games" as well as "Bad Games" and features a very unique and simple season normalization process.

We added the quarter-by quarter method as it provides a little more drama as the game unfolds, and only adds a slight bit of gaming time. The quarter-by-quarter method also allows you to play cross-era match-ups efficiently and accurately, with our season normalization ratings, so you can easily match-up teams from yesterday and today and get unbiased results.
Both methods are accurate and as the name implies, both methods play ultra-quick!

Each season has ratings for both methods of play.

Each team is rated individually for Offense, Defense, and Home Field Advantage. And while there will surely be some surprises along the way, since this is a game, after all, the accuracy of the game will astound you.

  UQ 2015 NBA Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2015 NBA Season for Ultra Quick Pro Basketball.

Ultra Quick Pro Basketball is really two games in one.

We offer you the familiar method employed in Ultra Quick College Hoops, which resolves a game in two rolls of the dice, and a quarter-by-quarter method, which closely resembles the method employed in Ultra Quick Hockey. The Quarter-by-Quarter method has provisions for "Big Games" as well as "Bad Games" and features a very unique and simple season normalization process.

We added the quarter-by quarter method as it provides a little more drama as the game unfolds, and only adds a slight bit of gaming time. The quarter-by-quarter method also allows you to play cross-era match-ups efficiently and accurately, with our season normalization ratings, so you can easily match-up teams from yesterday and today and get unbiased results.
Both methods are accurate and as the name implies, both methods play ultra-quick!

Each season has ratings for both methods of play.

You can purchase the E-Book here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_11_152&products_id=3598

  New Fast Action Racing Sets Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of 3 new seasons for Fast Action Racing: 2014 Stock Car, 2013 US Open Wheel, and 2014 US Open Wheel.

The E-Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_15_169

The Printed Year Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_16_170

With Fast Action Racing, we rate every driver that took the green flag during the season! That is right, every driver is individually rated, allowing you to complete an entire racing season using actual starting fields. Or if you prefer, create your own history using the drivers you wish.

Each season year book also includes a complete schedule, and every track on the circuit individually rated, with it's own card.

Fast Action Racing brings you all of the drama and excitement of motor racing to your tabletop. Do not let the name fool you. This is NOT a quick play game. However, it does play quickly. Our unique grid system allows you to play out an entire race in 20 minutes, once you have learned the rules.

Our grid system compresses each race into segments, making game play smooth, effortless and fast. Do not worry though, you will not miss any of the action. While you will not get all the action in minute detail, you will not miss out on lead changes, wrecks, great pit work, and mechanical problems that shape every race so uniquely. The game also lets you witness the challenges made to the race leader as well as the struggle of back markers to avoid being lapped or to rejoin the lead lap. All this action happens in a linear time span from green to checkered flag.

Fast Action Racing captures every important element of a race, produces very realistic results, and plays very quickly. And best of all, it feels like racing. No dice rolling exercises, no gimmicks, no math equations, or unrealistic tallying of numbers to determine a winner. Fast Action Racing is just that, racing, pure and simple.

  2014 US and European PGA Tour Year Books Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2014 US and European PGA Tour Year Books for Player of the Game Golf.

Every tour regular and all courses are rated.

We have included the Optional Big Day/Bad Day system that was employed in the All-Time Great Set.

The E-Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_157_158

The Printed Sets are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_26_155

This game was created several years ago to fill a personal need for a quick playing golf game that also involved a golfer’s skills, ability and personality. There are many fantastic golf games on the market. However, the stroke-by-stroke games have a playing time that isn’t conducive for a full tournament, let alone an entire season. And the quicker playing games, including a couple that I was involved with during the design, brought game play times down, but still didn’t “tell the story” of the round, nor did the golfers “feel different from one another”. The quest for both elements during game play resulted in the birth of Player of the Game Golf.

Over the years, the game has been tweaked and modified to cover all aspects of a golf tournament and season. We have literally played thousands of rounds of golf with the game and have used a computer model to play millions of rounds (no, that’s not an exaggeration) to ensure the game’s accuracy and playability.

Golfers are rated for their scoring abilty on Par 3, Par 4 and Par 5 holes. They are also rated for their skill in putting, driving, scrambling, and fairway play. They are also rated for their overall play in early rounds as well as in pressure situations when the tournament is on the line.

Each course is individually rated for difficulty during each round of play as well as scoring during each round.

And if that's not enough, we provide you with the tools to play as yourself or on your local course!

With Player of the Game Golf, you’ll see why a player struggled or had a great day on the links. You’ll visually be able to see the differences in the courses on the tour, and most importantly, be able to see why a player succeeds on certain course types, and struggles on others. Player of the Game Golf also accurately depicts how each and every golfer performs during early rounds and when facing extreme pressure during the final round. We really feel that Player of the Game golf covers all of the bases, offering accuracy, individuality, and most importantly speed of play.

  Momentum Football 2014 NFL Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2014 NFL Year Book for Momentum Football.

We would like to thank Phil Riviere for rating this season!

The E-Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_111&products_id=3535

The Printed Year Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_112&products_id=3534

Momentum Football is truly unique in that it allows you to quickly play a full game in 15-20 minutes while yielding not only team stats, but also individual player stats. I know of no other game that accomplishes this.

With Momentum Football you'll be able to track the following team and individual stats:

Passing Attempts, Passing Completions, Total Passing yardage, Interceptions, Fumbles Lost, Sacks, Rushing Attempts, Rushing Yardage, and all scoring.

Momentum Football uses a drive-by-drive approach to resolve games. But, don’t let the simplicity fool you. Over 254 variables are used to create each team’s chart making them highly accurate for both team performance and individual player performance. And best of all, we’ve designed the game so that there is little to no set-up time involved. As you become comfortable with the rules, you’ll be able to grab two team sheets, a score sheet and four dice and begin play immediately. There aren’t extensive pre-game calculations to slow you down.

Player of the Game Tennis is much like our other games in the Player of the Game lineup. It plays rapidly, but offers enough detail and action to give you the story of the match.

In Player of the Game Tennis, each player is individually rated for their service game both first serves and second serves; their complete ability when receiving (again how they handle the opponent's first serve or second serve); ability to hit game winners or game losers in some cases. Other factors, like a player's fitness, whether he is a favorite, ability to handle adversity, major and minor injuries are all included. Did we mention that all of the factors above are broken down by playing surface? All aspects of a tennis match are covered.

Player of the Game is easy to learn and easy to understand. You'll be playing in no time. Each match will unfold in front of your eyes at a brisk pace. A full match in Player of the Game tennis take no longer than 10 minutes. Most matches will be completed in 5 minutes!

Other factors, like a player's fitness, whether he is a favorite, ability to handle adversity, major and minor injuries are all included. Did we mention that all of the factors above are broken down by playing surface? All aspects of a tennis match are covered.

Downey Games is happy to announce the release of the 2012 NFL for Game Winning Drive Football.

You can purchase the E-Book version here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_84&products_id=3033

The Printed Year Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_85&products_id=3032

Game Winning Drive Football allows you to quickly play a game between two teams while capturing the entire ebb and flow of pro football. With Game Winning Drive, you’ll be able to “see” teams grind it out on the ground, or throw all over the field for scores. The defensive side of the football is not neglected in Game Winning Drive, as you’ll “see” great defenses in action, and directly impact the game.

As in real football, special teams play and turnovers have an impact in Game Winning Drive Football. You’ll “see” the impact of a short field for the opposing team after an interception or fumble. The dangerous Kick Returner’s and Punt Returner’s are a factor in Game Winning Drive. No other quick-play game covers all of the elements of football like Game Winning Drive.

While other quick-play games give you a final result, Game Winning Drive tells the “story” of the game. You’ll know precisely why a team wins or loses a contest. Also, unlike other quick playing games, Game Winning Drive adds many strategy elements to add to the realism and excitement of the game.

Do you go for it on 4th down? Do you go for the 2 pt conversion for the win, or kick the PAT for a tie? Do you try for an onside kick, or hope that your defense can shut down the offense for one final drive? With Game Winning Drive, the decisions are yours. There isn’t another quick-playing football game in the market that allows your coaching decisions to impact the game.

While your decisions may impact the game, your players on the field will ultimately determine the success of your team over the course of a season. Game Winning Drive Football factors each team’s offensive and defensive strengths and weaknesses. Each team is rated for scoring, Rushing, Passing, Kicking, Punting, Fumbles and Interceptions on the offensive side. On the defensive side of the ball, each team is rated for Overall Defense, Rushing Defense, Passing Defense, Fumble recoveries, and Interceptions.

The E-Book version is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_84&products_id=3000

The Printed Version, featuring die-cut Team cards, printed in full color, is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_85&products_id=2999

This is a departure from years past, as we usually release a Bowl Game set and then a "Final" set after the Bowl Games. This season, we are releasing the entire set before the Bowl Games. Any teams that are affected by the Bowl Games will be updated, and you will be e-mailed an updated Team card. In a game with this format, very few teams are changed in general. It takes a Bowl Game extremely out of the ordinary to change a scoring rating for this game. While the Bowl Games can have an impact on a game that rates individual players or a game that is designed for play-by-play, with GWD, past experience tells us that little changes in terms of overall team ratings. So, we chose to bring you the entire set at once this year. Again, if any team is changed due to their Bowl Game, you will receive an updated Team card.

This edition contains the 2012 College Top Division. Every team (yes, all 120+ teams) is rated for scoring ability, rushing, passing, kicking, propensity to fumble and throw interceptions on offense. On the defensive side, each team is rated for scoring allowed, rushing, passing, ability to force fumbles and interceptions and 4th down defensive ability. Everything you need to play, other than six-sided dice is included in the E-Book. Game Winning Drive uses no external charts or FACs. We have also included 2 teams to represent a Good FBS school and an average FBS school, so you can conduct full-season replays.

2012 Ultra Quick Football College Edition provides you with over 700 teams. All of the BCS Division (1A), FBS Divison (1AA), Division 2, Division 3, NAIA, CIS and even NESAC and NSIC teams from the 2012 collegiate season are included.

The Printed version is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_73&products_id=2998

The E-Book version is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_70&products_id=2997

As with our entire Ultra Quick lineup, individual games play in seconds. With Ultra Quick Football, you can easily play out a team's entire season in one sitting. You can play an entire league in hours, rather than days, weeks, months or years like other games.

In ultra Quick Football, all teams are rated for Offensive Ability, Defensive Ability, Strength of Schedule and Home Field Advantage.

In the past, I’ve concentrated on “getting things right” for each respective Division. However, one of the biggest suggestions from customers has been, “Please make the game so you can match up teams from different divisions”. In the past, I’ve made allowances for IA teams versus I AA teams. But, that was the extent of cross-divisional play. With the 2011 set, you’ll be able to easily and accurately match-up ANY BCS Division (1A), FBS Divison (1AA), Division 2, Division 3, NAIA team that is rated in the set. The CIS and Canadian Junior Football teams are only rated for their respective league play.

Speaking of ratings, the 2012 set includes over 740 teams from the BCS Series all the way to the NAIA. If you are bold enough, you’ll be able to complete the ENTIRE 2012 college football season!

Don't rely on the BCS to determine a National Champion. Conduct your own series of tournaments to see who is truly college football's National Champion!

Everything you need to play the game is included in this package.
Including the entire college football schedule, which spans 98 pages!

  TV Pro Wrestling 2: Presented in Color Released!
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of TV Pro Wrestling 2: Presented in color.

Approximately 3 years ago Dave Arlington and several other forum members suggested that I make a few changes to the original TV Pro Wrestling. I took their suggestions and implemented about 100 other tweaks which created an entirely new game.

The difference between the original TV Pro and the new version, is the difference from black and white TV to color television.

So what is different you ask?

*More Moves
*More finishers
*More wrestler types
*Better Tag-Team implementation
*More signature moves
*More story lines
*Submission moves for every wrestler
*And many, many more changes

The E-Book version is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_12_138

The Printed version is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_3_137

The new version releases with a Monday and Friday Night set as well as a Thursday Night set. I combined the Monday and Friday night sets, as they seem to shuffle their roster often. This way you have both rosters at your disposal. Both sets include 2 special legendary wrestlers.

Those that order the Deluxe version receive 5 legendary wrestlers and 4 legendary tag-teams that aren't available when purchasing sets alone.

All of the teams are normalized for cross-era play. I think that the All-Time sets are where this game engine REALLY shines. You can directly see the impact EVERY player has on the game. The teams included in each decade set may or may not always align with "conventional wisdom" as to their "greatness". I've gone to great lengths to make sure that each team has their strongest squad statistically from the decade represented. That team may or may not have won a Super Bowl, but I do think you get each franchise's best representative for the decade in these sets.

  APBA Golf Released
September 8, 2010

APBA Games is pleased to announce the release of its reissued and all new APBA Pro Golf Board Game!

For almost 60 years APBA has been the unchallenged KING of quality sports entertainment products! Now with APBA Golf, you can get in on the excitement. Fun, quick and easy to play, APBA Golf puts you right in the middle of the action.

APBA Golf comes with 20 All-Time great professional golfer cards to choose from! These legends of the links will allow you to enjoy the thrill of golf, the way it was meant to be played. Each of these new, advanced player cards is crafted in a way to perform for you with woods, irons, wedges, and putters in astonishingly characteristic fashion, regarding both accuracy and distance!

APBA Golf is a great game to enjoy some quick golf fun or to replay an entire round or tournament! Oh-did we mention that APBA Golf is as realistic as playing an actual round? Like a professional golfer, you must consider all the elements on the golf course and use the right club for the situation...or suffer the consequences of a poor shot.

APBA Golf comes with a famous D.C. Metropolitan course which is well known for hosting professional tournaments in the Washington D.C. area. With this classic course, APBA Golf allows you to play each hole, from tee to green, according to the actual layout of the course, including hazards, bunkers, doglegs, trees, and undulating greens.

You make all the calls. You pick the club, you decide whether to play cautiously or aggressively. Depending on the lie of the ball; whether you're in the fairway, the rough, in a trap or on the green, your shot depends on how you choose to play it!

APBA Pro Golf was first introduced in 1963. This updated version includes the following All-Time Great golfers: Padraig Harrington, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, Nick Price, Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Johnny Miller, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Gene Sarazen, Bobby Jones, and Walter Hagen.

In addition to golf, APBA also offers Pro Baseball, Football and Hockey games!

Downey Games is proud to announce the opening of pre-orders for the second expanison for Time Travel Baseball.

The second expansion set will release on April 5th, which is opening day for professional baseball. Since we are taking pre-orders, the plan is to have the set in everyone's hands by April 5th. However, we'll commit to shipment by Opening Day.

  APBA News for February
My friends at APBA passed along the following news for February. Take note of the sale going on with the Baseball, Football and Hockey board games. If you haven't tried the "new" games, now is a great time to do so. I have the revised baseball game, and I personally think it's the best chart book they've produced. This size is much better for table space, and the results are easier for my eyes. I'll give my review of the "new" football and hockey offerings soon, as I plan to take advantage of the sale myself.

Also note that APBA has sent along the following official card files for the dedicated community we have here at tabletop-sports.com. You can find the 2008 College Football All-Stars, the 2009 MLB All-Stars, the 2009 Hockey All-Stars and the 2010 Olympic Hockey teams for the US and Canada in the download section. The files will be listed in the "Official APBA Card Files" category for each sport. As the year progresses, you'll see more of these official offerings made available to tabletop-sports.com users.

If you do take advantage of thier sale, be sure to tell them that you heard about it here.

Here is the full APBA Newsletter release:


1. With the Winter Olympics coming to a close and the US and Canada are battling it out for Ice Hockey medals (as of this email) why not get your hockey fix and take this opportunity to try the APBA Pro Hockey Board Game.

While we're at it, why just have a special on Hockey? Now until March 5th, we're offering $5 off each of the board games. That's right order Football, Baseball or Hockey and receive $5 off. Also for this limited time, if you order all 3 as a bundle, get them for only $45! That's right, save $21!

5. We are expecting potential bad weather again on the east coast. This has been a record setting winter for this area. The amount of snow we've received as been incredible. Over the next 24/48 hours we could potentially receive anywhere from another 6 to 15 inches of snow. This has the potential to interrupt our normal business activity. We ask that if this is the case that you please understand and have patience with us as we assure the safety and welfare of our employees. The potential is there for late opening, early closing or potentially a full closure all together. We'll make an announcement on our message boards and via Facebook should any of the above occur.

  Announcing Dive Shot Lacrosse
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Dive Shot Lacrosse.

With Dive Shot Lacrosse you can complete a full season with win-loss records and league leaders in goals and assists and GAA for goalies.

Dive Shot Lacrosse makes a perfect stand-alone game for season replays.

In addition to the release of the game, we are proud to announce the availability of the 2008 National Lacrosse League and the 2008 Major League Lacrosse Year Books.

  HardBall Wars Now Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of HardBall Wars.

HardBall Wars is the “brother” to our football game, GridIron Wars. While I was designing GridIron Wars, an idea popped into my head
regarding a similar method to resolve a baseball game. After putting the idea to paper and mailing it to a couple of trusted friends,
HardBall Wars was born. HardBall Wars is simple enough for a child to learn, but robust enough to satisfy even the most veteran of baseball gamer.

Many may wonder, why a baseball game? Aren’t there plenty of good ones already on the market? In short, the answer is yes. There are many
fantastic baseball games on the market. With HardBall Wars, I’m really not re-inventing the wheel. You’ll never hear me tout the game as
better or more realistic than any other game currently on the market.

However, having said that, I do feel like this game stands up well against any other baseball game in terms of what is truly most important,
the “fun factor”. My testers and I have had an absolute blast playing the game. The unique batter-pitcher interface, combined with the X-
Factor deck, makes the game unique and in my humble opinion very fun to play.

My philosophy with Downey Games has always been to price games as low as possible, making the games accessible to all. Most current baseball
board games sell in the $50-$60 range. While that is reasonable to most, it does make it an expensive proposition to purchase multiple
seasons or teams. With HardBall Wars, I’ve purposely designed the game with a cost factor in mind. For that same $50 or $60 you’ll be able
to purchase multiple seasons of HardBall Wars. Also unlike other games, we strive to rate nearly every player who stepped foot on the field
of play.

HardBall Wars is based upon a modified log5 method. That may not mean much to some, but using this method allows the pitcher and batter to
"Interact" on every at-bat. Rather than a 50/50 model or a generic pitcher grade, with HardBall Wars you'll see the difference between
pitchers and batters and their impact on the at-bat in a very visual way. You'll also immediately see the difference in righty/lefty
matchups at the plate.

Fielding is not neglected in HardBall Wars. You'll see the difference between the gold glove shortstop and the lead gloved fielder not only
in terms of errors committed but also the ability to turn hits into outs.

The most unique aspect of HardBall Wars is our introduction of the X-Factor Deck. And often times it can generate a lot of excitement.

Within the X-Factor deck just about anything you’ve ever seen in a baseball game can take place. From run downs, appeals, dropped third
strikes, rain delays, rain outs, ejections, brawls to even the extremely bizarre like the now famous Pine Tar incident—all are possible
within the X-Factor Deck.

The deck is far more than just a Rare Play mechanism. There are many conditional events within the deck and even some very mundane plays.

The X-Factor deck simulates the events that happen in real life that as a tabletop gamer you don’t often see in your own gaming. One can see
something out of the ordinary in almost every baseball game in real life. And we have brought that to the tabletop through the use of the X
-Factor Deck.

With HardBall Wars, the decisions as a manager are all yours. You decide when to steal bases. You decide when to Hit and Run or Sacrifice
the runner to the next base. You'll make the call when to intentionally walk the opposition’s slugger, or when to bring the infield in to
cut down a runner at the plate. You'll make the call as when to attempt a squeeze bunt or play for the big inning. You'll make the call to
bring in the lefty specialist to face the opposing left hand slugger, or stick with your right hand throwing starter. With HardBall Wars, you
may even be ejected from the game! Nearly every situation that faces a major league skipper is replicated in the game.

The printed game features game charts printed in full-color, the season of your choice, 3 dice, a die-cut X-Factor deck also printed in full color, score sheets all packaged in a sturdy game box.

Get in the dugout and order HardBall Wars today!

Seasons available are: 1914 Federal, 1934, 1949, 1956, 1977, 1980 and 2007.

You can order the printed version here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_58_90

  Ultra Quick 2007 NCAA Football Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2007 College Season for Ultra Quick Football.

2007 NCAA Ultra Quick Football provides you with over 700 teams all of the Division 1A, 1AA, Division 2, Division 3 and NAIA teams from the 2007-08 collegiate season are included.

As with our entire Ultra Quick lineup, individual games play in seconds. With Ultra Quick Football, you can easily play out a team's entire season in one sitting. You can play an entire league in hours, rather than days, weeks, months or years like other games.

In ultra Quick Football, all teams are rated for Offensive Ability, Defensive Ability, Strength of Schedule and Home Field Advantage.

While, I don’t strive to change the game with each edition, I do strive to have the most accurate quick play game available. Therefore, I’ve implemented a new Strength of Schedule formula and a new method of utilizing Strength of Schedule.

In the past, I’ve concentrated on “getting things right” for each respective Division. However, one of the biggest suggestions from customers has been, “Please make the game so you can match up teams from different divisions”. In the past, I’ve made allowances for IA teams versus I AA teams. But, that was the extent of cross-divisional play. With the 2007 set, you’ll be able to easily and accurately match-up ANY team that is rated in the set.

Speaking of ratings, the 2007 set includes over 700 teams from Division IA all the way to the NAIA. If you are bold enough, you’ll be able to complete the ENTIRE 2007 college football season!

Don't rely on the BCS to determine a National Champion. Conduct your own series of tournaments to see who is truly college football's National Champion!

Everything you need to play the game is included in this package.

Get on the field today with Ultra Quick Football!

  Greatest NHL Teams in History Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the Greatest Teams of the Past for Player of the Game Hockey.

This edition of POTG Hockey enables you to match up contests between 24 of the greatest NHL teams of all-time and be assured that each team will perform competitively regardless of the era in which they originally played.

The Great Teams of the Past Year Book allows you to find out which team was the best in Hockey History. The set was meticulously researched and normalized to keep all teams on an even footing. You can read more about the Normalization and Team Selection process below.

You can purchase the E-Book version here:http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=968

The Printed version can be purchased here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=969

The printed version comes in full-color on die-cut cards.


Here are the twenty-four teams included in this set:

ORIGINAL

1925-26 MAROONS
1926-27 OTTAWA
1929-30 BOSTON
1938-39 BOSTON
1939-40 NEW YORK
1943-44 MONTREAL
1947-48 TORONTO
1949-50 DETROIT
1954-55 DETROIT
1955-56 MONTREAL
1962-63 TORONTO
1966-67 CHICAGO


MODERN ERA

1970-71 BOSTON
1975-76 PHILADELPHIA
1976-77 MONTREAL
1981-82 LONG ISLAND
1983-84 EDMONTON
1988-89 CALGARY
1992-93 PITTSBURGH
1993-94 NEW YORK
1995-96 DETROIT
1995-96 COLORADO
1998-99 DALLAS
1999-2000 NEW JERSEY

A. SELECTION CRITERIA


Teams were first screened based upon two criteria set forth in The Hockey Compendium by Jeff Klein & Karl-Eric Reif.
• Best single-season record (minimum 16-game schedule).
• Devastation Scale – Comparison of the ratio of goals scored to the number they allowed.


Inclusion in GTOP was further narrowed by:
• Expanding the minimum schedule length to 36 games. This eliminated all NHL teams prior to 1925-26.
• Selecting only one franchise team in each decade
• Setting a franchise maximum of three seasons that could be selected.
• Including each Original Six franchise at least once.

B. NORMALIZATION
Stats used to rate the players and teams in this set were normalized for play across all eras using the method contained in the first edition of Total Hockey. Total Hockey “normalized” each skater’s goals and assists and each goaltender’s goals against average for each season he played in the NHL by:


1. Comparing the average number of goals scored per game for each individual season with the overall NHL average of 6.17. If the individual season average was less than the NHL overall average, goals that season, were harder to come by. Conversely, in seasons where goals were plentiful, each goal scored is worth less than 1.00.

a. Example: In 1952-53 only 4.79 goals were scored per game (both teams). According to Total Hockey, each goal scored in 1952-53 has been factored to represent 1.29 Adjusted Goals (6.17/4.79). Compare that total with the 1981-82 season that saw teams score 8.01 goals per game. For 1981-82 each goal represents just .77 Adjusted Goals.


b. Effect on Skaters: Gordie Howe scored 49 goals in 1952-53; in 1981-82 Wayne Gretzky scored 92. But when normalized by Total Hockey, Howe winds up with 78 and Gretzky 74.

c. Effect on goaltenders: Smith and Jones are goalies with identical goals against averages of 3.00. Smith played in 1952-53 when the league-wide average was a stingy 2.40 goals-against. Dividing the all-time NHL average of 3.13 by the 1952-53 mark of 2.40, yields a factor of 1.30. Smith’s 3.00 multiplied by the factor of 1.30, adjusts to 3.90. Jones played in the 1981-82 season when the league-wide average had grown to 4.00. Dividing the all-time average of 3.13 by the 1981-82 mark of 4.00, yields a factor of 0.78. Smith’s 3.00 adjusts to 2.34.


2. Standardizing individual stats on a 82-game regular season schedule. The NHL has played schedules ranging in length from 18 to 84 games. Total Hockey has factored every player’s scoring stats to today’s standard of 82 games.


a. Example: Nels Stewart of the Maroons played in all of his team’s 36 scheduled games in 1925-26, scoring 34 goals. If he played today, he would have played 100% of 82 games or 2.28 times more games (and, presumable, more goals) than were available to him during the 1925-26 season.

  1980 Pro Football Yearbook Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1980 Professional Season for GridIron Wars.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1980 Professional Football Season with GridIron Wars!

The 1980 season was the 61st regular season of the League.

Off the field, the league declined to approve the proposed move by Oakland to Los Angeles, the team along with the Coliseum sued the League for violating antitrust laws. A verdict in the trial would not be decided until before the 1982 season.

Meanwhile, on the field the season ended when the Oakland team defeated the Philadelphia squad.

The league featured several teams with legitimate chances for the title. Every division saw teams battling for the Division Title in the final week of play. The Wild Card spots in both conferences were decided by tie-breakers. This is a fantastic season for a replay.

Can you repeat history with the Oakland team winning it all for their strange, but passionate owner?
Can you lead the Cleveland, Atlanta, Dallas, Philly, Buffalo, Houston or San Diego team to the title?

  Announcing Player of the Game Hockey
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Player of the Game Hockey.

Player of the Game Hockey is the creation of John Kechejian, and I am proud and honored to have John join the Downey Games family.

Player of the Game Hockey is a quick playing (10-15 minutes) hockey game that allows you to complete hockey seasons quickly and accurately. Leading goal scorers, key-playmakers, and clutch goaltenders will all perform as they did in real-life. Each game provides realistic scoring, identifies goal scorers and time of goal, and who assisted along with a sense of the actual ebb and flow of real hockey action.

Player of the Game Hockey is a true hybrid game much like it's Basketball counterpart. The game plays rapidly (10-15 minutes) but offers a complete box score. With Player of the Game Hockey, you'll be able to track not only team statistics, but complete individual stats as well. Shots on goal, Power Plays, Short Handed goals, and penalty minutes are all accounted for in the game. You won't find another hockey game that allows you to play a game as quickly with FULL STATS!

Player of the Game Hockey offers gamers two options in which to resolve games. The game was originally completely dice and chart driven. That version is included within the game part package. Later, the game was adapted to a Fast Action Deck for even greater speed of play, and silky smooth flow. John and I recommend playing the FAC version of the game, as it really does flow much like hockey, and plays even more rapidly than the dice and chart version. However, the method in which you play is entirely up to you. Both formats offer the same statistical precision, and quick game play. Neither version will take you longer than 15 minutes to play a full game with complete team and individual stats!

I have designed several quick-play games over the past five years, and played many, many others. I honestly don’t believe that you will find a better quick playing game on the market. Since presented with the game, I’ve truly become addicted to Player of the Game. It has that quality where you just want to play one more game, and after a while, you find yourself realizing that you’ve played a dozen or so games.

Order your copy and get on the ice today!

As with all offerings from Downey Games, we offer the game in printed format, as well as an Electronic E-Book download.

The printed versions feature a die-cut FAC deck, and die-cut team cards printed in full-color.

Seasons available at the initial release are: 1943-44 NHL, 1967-68 NHL, 1976-77 NHL, 1982-83 NHL, and the past (2006-07) NHL seasons.

  1995-96 NHL Season Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1995-96 NHL season for BigBep Hockey.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1995-96 National Hockey season. The yearbook includes every team and all skaters.

Play out the 1996 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

The 1995-96 season was the 79th regular season of the National League. Twenty-six teams each played 82 games. The Cup winners were the Colorado team, who swept the Florida franchise in four games.

1995-96 was the first season in Denver for the Colorado franchise, who had relocated from Quebec City where they were previously known as the Quebec Nordiques.

It was also the last season of existence for the Winnipeg Jets, as they announced that they would be moving from Manitoba to Arizona and become the Phoenix team at season's end.

The Detroit squad had a spectacular season, finishing with the second-highest regular-season point total in history (131 points), yet they fell to Colorado in the Western Conference final, the sixth game of which marked the beginning of the heated Detroit-Colorado rivalry.

This yearbook utilizes the "Tough Guy" chart and ratings. This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and head-to-head coaching.

The BigBep Printed Yearbooks come in two formats; a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

  Announcing Game Winning Drive Football
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Game Winning Drive Football

Game Winning Drive Football is a quick play Football game designed by Rick Kucz and Philippe Riviere. Every team is rated for scoring ability, rushing, passing, kicking, propensity to fumble and throw interceptions on offense. On the defensive side, each team is rated for scoring allowed, rushing, passing, ability to force fumbles and interceptions and 4th down (3rd Down for the CFL) defensive ability. Everything you need to play, other than six-sided dice is included in the E-Book. Printed Versions come with everything needed to play, and are printed in full-color. Game Winning Drive uses no external charts or FACs.

I am very proud of all my football offerings at Downey Games. But, this may be the single most addictive football game I've ever played.

For the initial release, we have the following offerings:

2006 NFL
2007 CFL
2006 NCAA
1965 AFL
1965 NFL

Game Winning Drive Football allows you to quickly play a game between two teams while capturing the entire ebb and flow of Canadian football. With Game Winning Drive, you’ll be able to “see” teams grind it out on the ground, or throw all over the field for scores. The defensive side of the football is not neglected in Game Winning Drive, as you’ll “see” great defenses in action, and directly impact the game.

As in real football, special teams play and turnovers have an impact in Game Winning Drive Football. You’ll “see” the impact of a short field for the opposing team after an interception or fumble. The dangerous Kick Returners and Punt Returners are a factor in Game Winning Drive. No other quick-play game covers all of the elements of football like Game Winning Drive.

While other quick-play games give you a final result, Game Winning Drive tells the “story” of the game. You’ll know precisely why a team wins or loses a contest. Also, unlike other quick playing games, Game Winning Drive adds many strategy elements to add to the realism and excitement of the game.

Do you go for it on 3rd down? Do you go for the 2 pt conversion for the win, or kick the PAT for a tie? Do you try for an onside kick, or hope that your defense can shut down the offense for one final drive? With Game Winning Drive, the decisions are yours. There isn’t another quick-playing football game in the market that allows your coaching decisions to impact the game.

While your decisions may impact the game, your players on the field will ultimately determine the success of your team over the course of a season. Game Winning Drive Football factors each team’s offensive and defensive strengths and weaknesses. Each team is rated for scoring, Rushing, Passing, Kicking, Punting, Fumbles and Interceptions on the offensive side. On the defensive side of the ball, each team is rated for Overall Defense, Rushing Defense, Passing Defense, Fumble recoveries, and Interceptions.

Rick, Phil, and I think you’ll find Game Winning Drive to be the most comprehensive quick-play football game on the market.

The 1972-73 WHA season was the first regular season of the now defunct World Hockey Association (WHA). Twelve teams played 78 games each. The league was officially incorporated in June of 1971 by Garry L. Davidson and Dennis A. Murphy and promised to ice twelve teams in various markets around Canada and the United States. The league championship trophy, the Avco World Trophy, was donated by AVCO Financial Services Corporation along with $500,000. The New England Whalers won the first Avco World Trophy.

  1987-88 NHL Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1987-88 National Hockey League season for BigBep Hockey.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1987-88 National Hockey League season. The yearbook includes every NHL team and all skaters.

Play out the 1988 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

This yearbook utilizes the "Tough Guy" chart and ratings. This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and head-to-head coaching.

This season may be best known for the infamous confrontation between Devils coach Jim Schoenfeld and referee Don Koharski after Game 3 of the conference Finals, when, during an argument in the tunnel after the game, Koharski tripped and fell, accusing Schoenfield of pushing him. Schoenfield famously responded, "You tripped and fell you fat pig!" Then, he yelled "Have another doughnut! Have another doughnut!" The incident was played repeatedly on ESPN and has become part of NHL lore.

Schonefeld was suspended by NHL president John Ziegler for game four, but the Devils received an injunction from a New Jersey court, allowing Schoenfeld to coach the fourth game. In protest, the officials scheduled to work that game in the Meadlowlands refused to take the ice, forcing the NHL to scramble for amateur officials to call the contest. The injunction was lifted and Schoenfeld served his suspension during game five in the Boston Garden.

The BigBep Printed Yearbooks come in two formats; a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

  1974 World Football League Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1974 World Football League season for GridIron Wars.

Relive the fun and excitement of the World Football League and their inaugural season.

Playing a 20-game regular season schedule in 1974 - six games longer than the NFL's then 14-game season - the WFL staged no exhibition games (although its teams did participate in preseason scrimmages). The season was to begin on Wednesday, July 10th and ended on Wednesday, November 13th. This was a 20-game season in 19 weeks --- a schedule accomplished by having double games (primarily Monday and Friday) on Labor Day weekend. But some complained that the schedule was poorly drafted. For one thing, although most teams played on Wednesday nights, with a national TV game slated for Thursday nights, the Hawaiians played their home games on Sunday afternoons (meaning that when the Hawaiians had back-to-back home games, they played on a Sunday night, followed by their next opponent playing a Wednesday night game on the mainland, and then that opponent flying out to Honolulu to play the well-rested Hawaiians four nights later). In addition, back-to-back meetings between two teams, a no-no in the NFL by that time, were common, with the earliest set of back-to-back games being as early as July 24th and 31st (the third and fourth weeks of the season).

In the first few weeks, the WFL looked to be a resounding success. Attendance outpaced the first week of the old American Football League of 1960, averaging just under 43,000 a game. The box office numbers proved to be the beginning of the WFL's undoing. In Jacksonville, the Sharks admitted that 44,000 tickets were giveaways. The Philadelphia Bell whose first two home games totaled 120,000 fans, told the press that over 100,000 had been sold for almost nothing. Presumably the giveaways were intended in part to pique the public's curiosity and interest, but the attempt was unsuccessful. Six games into the first season, WFL franchises were in serious trouble. The Detroit Wheels were looking to move to Charlotte, North Carolina and the Florida Blazers made overtures of bringing the first place club to Atlanta.

By September, the barely one-year old league had bottomed out when two franchises relocated. The New York Stars relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina as the Charlotte Hornets, and the Houston Texans, the first WFL team to relocate in mid-season, moved to Shreveport, Louisiana as the Shreveport Steamer. In October, the league pulled the plug on the Detroit Wheels and the Jacksonville Sharks after 14 games. The folding of the Jacksonville franchise meant that the Gator Bowl would not host World Bowl I.

Despite the disasters, many thought the WFL performed fairly well, though below NFL standards. Many games were tight, decided by seven points or less, and the Action Point, the one-point mandatory conversion run attempt rather than the standard "PAT" (Point After Touchdown), was favored among WFL coaches and critics. The league championship - the World Bowl, or World Bowl I - was staged in Birmingham between the hometown Birmingham Americans and Florida Blazers. The Action Point proved to be the equalizer as the Americans won the championship by a single point, 22-21. The day after the World Bowl, the champions' uniforms were confiscated by sheriff's deputies.

Can you lead Memphis to the title? How about Florida? Or will Birmingham take it all as they did in real life?

* During the first three minutes of overtime, in case of a penalty, the non-offending team is awarded one extra skater per penalty (up to five).
* In the final two minutes, any minor penalty results in an automatic penalty shot.
* No delay of game minor penalty if a skater intentionally shoots a puck into the stands. No line change by team clearing the puck.

  1983 USFL Released for GridIron Wars
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1983 USFL season for GridIron Wars.

Relive the fun and excitement of the upstart league, the USFL and their inaugural season.

The inaugural season of the United States Football League began on March 6 with five games, including the professional debut of 1982 Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker, who signed with the New Jersey Generals just weeks before the start of the season.

Prior to the signing of Herschel Walker by the New Jersey Generals, the USFL was being compared to the most recent previous challenger to the 63-year old National Football League, the WFL. While the 1983 season produced financial losses for all but one of the league's twelve teams, the USFL accomplished some things that the WFL had not: it had no teams fold during the season (as had been the case for the WFL's Jacksonville franchise), no teams moved in mid-season (the WFL had several), no teams declining to participate in its playoffs (as WFL's Boston/New York/Charlotte team had done). While there was plenty of red ink to go around in the league's income statements and a few owners wanted out, the losses were for the most part their own doing.

On the field people were surprised with the quality of play in the USFL's first season, particularly considering that the league opted to start its inaugural regular season without the benefit of any pre-season contests. After just one year, those who didn't simply reject the concept of the USFL out of hand were making comparisons - how would the champion Michigan Panthers, the Chicago Blitz or Philadelphia Stars fare if they were in the NFL? While the answer from most was that they'd be lower-tier teams competitively speaking, just having the discussion gave the USFL's on-field product greater credibility.&&

Can you lead Chicago to the title? How about Philadelphia with their defense? Or will Michigan take it all as they did in real life?

  1979-80 NHL Season Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1979-80 National Hockey League season for BigBep Hockey.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1979-80 National Hockey League season. The yearbook includes every NHL team and all skaters.

Play out the 1980 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

The 1979-80 NHL season was the 63rd season of the National Hockey League. Twenty-one teams each played 80 games. This season saw the addition of four teams from the collapse of the World Hockey Association (WHA) the previous season as expansion franchises. The Edmonton Oilers, Winnipeg Jets, New England Whalers (later renamed "Hartford Whalers" at the insistence of the Boston Bruins), and Quebec Nordiques joined the NHL bringing a new total of 21 teams. The other two WHA teams (Birmingham Bulls and Cincinnati Stingers) were paid to disband. The collapse of the WHA also saw the much hyped super-star rookie Wayne Gretzky come to the NHL with the Edmonton Oilers. Gretzky would tie Marcel Dionne for the scoring lead with 137 points and capture the Hart Trophy as the most valuable player while Dionne took home the Art Ross Trophy as the leading scorer by virtue of having scored two more goals.

The big story of the regular season was the record-breaking undefeated streak compiled by the Philadelphia Flyers. After starting the season with a 5-2 win over the New York Islanders and a 9-2 loss to the Atlanta Flames, the Flyers did not lose again for nearly three months, earning at least one point in every game between a 4-3 win over Toronto October 14, 1979 and a 4-2 win over Buffalo January 6, 1980, a span of 35 games. This stands as the longest undefeated streak in North American professional sports history.

Other Highlights from the season were:

- Nine of the 21 teams actually had 300+ goals.
- Nine players with 50 or more goals scored.
- The New York Islanders win the first of 4 consecutive Stanley Cups.

This yearbook utilizes the "Though Guy" chart and ratings. This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and head-to-head coaching.

The BigBep Printed Yearbooks come in two formats; a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

The 1973-74 NHL season was the 57th season of the National Hockey League. Sixteen teams each played 78 games. A new award, the Jack Adams for the best coach, was introduced for this season. The first winner was Fred Shero of the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Philadelphia Flyers who developed the nick-name "Broad Street Bullies" because of their physical style of play, dethroned the Chicago Black Hawks as the West Division champions and the Boston Bruins regained the top spot in the East and the league.
Stanley Cup finals

Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Boston Bruins 4 games to 2, winning the cup with a Game 6 1-0 victory. In doing so, the Flyers became the first expansion team to win the Cup in the post-Original Six era.

Now a bit about the game...

First of all, let me state that this is not a quick-play game. It's a full play-by-play simulation of football that plays rapidly. Once you are familiar with the game, you'll be able to easily complete a game in 40 minutes or less.

The goal in designing GridIron Wars was to create a game that played rapidly, was easy to learn, statistically accurate and most importantly, fun. I think that I’ve succeeded on all counts.

The design of GridIron Wars is what I’ve come to term as Back to the Basics sports gaming. With the advent of the computer and the Internet, today’s game designer has a wealth of data at his fingertips. Today’s sports games are highly sophisticated and most are highly accurate as well. While a great many are outstanding designs, sometimes I feel like the "fun factor" has disappeared as the games have become more advanced.

The first consideration in the design of GridIron Wars was making the game fun. Now, I fully realize that this is very subjective. Everyone has different tastes in life and in board gaming. In order to keep a football game fun, it was determined that a good design needed to be as simple as possible, but remain flexible enough to cater to the hardest of the hardcore sports gamer. It was also determined that creating a game that plays very quickly, without sacrificing individual stats, was a must. Even the best designed football games can become tedious after a while if they take longer than an hour to play. Finally, it was determined that the game needed to maintain speed of play strictly as a tabletop game.

Let me expand a bit on that last statement. There are several games that can speed up game play with the aid of the computer by using a "Helper" or "FAC Flipper". Using the Back to the Basics approach, I wanted the game to play just as quickly away from the computer. That’s not to say there is anything wrong with having a computer aid in game play. A lot of my own game playing is done in this manner, in fact. I just wanted to take a different course with this game. That isn’t to say that you can’t use GridIron Wars with a "Helper", as it will integrate fantastically for those that enjoy using the computer to keep stats. But, for those who want a purely tabletop experience, I think you’ll really enjoy the pace of GridIron Wars.

In GridIron Wars, every skill position player is rated to perform as they did in real life. You'll be able to compile full statistics for every offensive player. On defense, you'll be able to track individual player stats for interceptions and sacks for most seasons where the data is available.

Defense plays a huge part in GridIron Wars, you'll "see" teams with great run defenses stuff the opposition with regularity. You'll experience the effects of team's with a great pass defense, or a lock down secondary.

The game ships with a complete solitaire system that will select offensive and defensive play calling, as well as individual ball carriers and receivers. Or if you choose, you can handle all of the play calling yourself.

The game is not designed just for solitaire play. GridIron Wars is a great head-to-head game as well. You decide when to key on the star running back, or pull back in a pass defense. Perhaps your style is aggressive on defense, in which case, you'll be able to call an all out Blitz at key moments.

With GridIron Wars, I've also introduced an optional Timing Deck, which takes away a lot of the "work" found in other games.

As I've said, GridIron Wars is a back to the basics game. You'll have a lot of fun, and be able to actually complete that season replay you've attempted with other games.

  2006-07 Dutch Ere-Divisie Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006-07 Dutch Ere-Divisie for Ultra Quick Soccer.

To use the Ere-Divisie ratings, you'll need to have the UQ Soccer International Game Parts.

The scope of Ultra Quick Soccer is much like the other games in the Ultra Quick lineup. With UQ Soccer, I aim to provide you with an extremely quick and accurate method of resolving the final score between two soccer teams. With UQ Soccer you can play out an entire season for a team or a league in rapid fashion. UQ Soccer makes a perfect stand-alone game for season replays. It also functions very well as a complimentary game by resolving the games that don’t particularly interest you in a detailed shot-by-shot game, while you use the detailed game to play out the games that do interest you.

Unlike most quick play games, which only provide a team score, UQ Soccer does offer an optional individual scoring module to allow you to track league leaders in goals scored.

We offer the game and season ratings in both printed and E-book format.

You can purchase the E-Book versions at:

  2006-07 German Bundesliga Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006-07 German Bundesliga for Ultra Quick Soccer.

To use the Bundesliga ratings, you'll need to have the UQ Soccer International Game Parts.

The scope of Ultra Quick Soccer is much like the other games in the Ultra Quick lineup. With UQ Soccer, I aim to provide you with an extremely quick and accurate method of resolving the final score between two soccer teams. With UQ Soccer you can play out an entire season for a team or a league in rapid fashion. UQ Soccer makes a perfect stand-alone game for season replays. It also functions very well as a complimentary game by resolving the games that don’t particularly interest you in a detailed shot-by-shot game, while you use the detailed game to play out the games that do interest you.

Unlike most quick play games, which only provide a team score, UQ Soccer does offer an optional individual scoring module to allow you to track league leaders in goals scored.

We offer the game and season ratings in both printed and E-book format.

You can purchase the E-Book versions at:

Mud Bogging Overview

Mud bogging, also known as mud racing, is a form of off-road motor sport popular in the United States in which the goal is to drive a vehicle through a pit of mud of a set length. Winners are determined by the distance traveled through the pit or, if several vehicles are able to travel the entire length, the time taken to traverse the pit. Typically, vehicles competing in mud bogs are four-wheel drives.

There are many types of mud bogs. From Hill and Hole, Flat or Progressive Track, and Open Bog. They come in many shapes and sizes from 150 feet to over 300 feet. Hill and Hole is just as it sounds, usually is 60 feet wide 200 feet long and is a series of hills and holes, and make challenging to each truck. Progressive tracks are generally flat with the consistency of the mud varying as the vehicle advances through the pit.

Boggin' features 24 of the best mud bogs in the world. And each is uniquely rated for length, type and difficulty.

You need not be an expert or even a full-fledged fan of mud bogging to enjoy the game. Everything needed to "bring you up to speed" is included in the rule book. Even those with no knowledge of the sport itself will love this racing game.

  New Main Event Boxing Ratings Available
I have finished compiling the 2007 All-Time Great Sets for Main Event Boxing. I have added roughly 5,000 fighter ratings this year, bringing the total ATG fighters rated to over 15,000. No other game is anywhere close to that!

In addition to the additional fighters, I have tweaked thousands of previously rated fighters for greater accuracy.

I have also added into the set the fictional boxers from the Rocky series. While these are available on tabletop-sports.com as a free download, they are requested more than any other fighters. So, I decided to finally add them to the year book.

As with all of the ATG sets, fighters that changed weight classes in their career are rated accurately in each class.

The All-Time Great Sets come in Printed and E-Book formats and are available at Downey Games. Each printed set is over 80 pages in total.

  All-Time Modern College Football Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of All-Time Modern College Football for Ultra Quick Football. We now have every season from 1950 through 1999 available in “Decade Yearbooks”. Each decade yearbook features complete ratings for all major college teams, as well as complete results and schedules. And the best part is that each team is rated for accurate cross-era play using normalized ratings.

One of the challenges with a quick play college football game has always been normalization for cross-era play. Other games do a decent job of generating scores within a particular season, but often times “fall down” when playing teams from other seasons.

The game of football has changed dramatically over the years with specialization, more wide-open offensive schemes, and several rule changes to benefit the offense. As a result, scoring has increased through the years. Scoring was even more dramatically impacted in recent years with the addition of the overtime rules.

With the All-Time College version of Ultra Quick Football, I believe I have created a game which removes any seasonal or rules bias for cross-era play. From a strictly mathematical stand point, I think the ratings and engine employed are as "realistic" as one can expect for a quick playing football game.

One can debate the effects of today’s larger athletes dominating athletes of years past. But, that’s not really the scope of this game. The premise for All-Time NCAA Ultra Quick Football is that all things being equal, we can determine the best college football team of all-time, or for a particular decade.

As with our entire Ultra Quick lineup, individual games play in seconds. With Ultra Quick Football, you can easily play out a team's entire season in one sitting. You can play an entire league in hours, rather than days, weeks, months or years like other games.

In ultra Quick Football, all teams are rated for Offensive Ability, Defensive Ability, Home Field Advantage, Strength of Schedule, and unique normalization ratings so you can accurately match up any two teams from any era!

Everything needed to play, with the exception of two 10-sided dice is included in the package.

The size of each yearbook is substantial. The breakdown of each yearbook in terms of printed pages is as follows:

1950’s Decade- 127 pages
1960’s Decade- 138 pages
1970’s Decade- 164 pages

  BigBep Hockey 2007 E-Book Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2007 NHL E-Book for BigBep Hockey.

For the 2007 Year Book, we've made many enhancements to an already great game.

The first enhancement is the rule booklet. I have re-written the rule booklet in a more illustrative manner to cover all of the questions that have been directed to Don or myself in the first year of the game's release.

For 2007, we have also added the following:

1) Added an Affiliation Chart . It includes all the links between the NHL, AHL and ECHL .

2) Added the TOUGH GUY CHART to the game . This addresses players with high penalty minutes and also adds another layer of strategy for solitaire and had-to-head coaching.

3) Add a pure passer rule and modification to represent the effect of the great passers in the game. While the game as originally written did subtly address the great passers like Joe Thornton, the new modification is more dramatic. You'll now directly see the impact of a great passer on the scoring chances for the rest of your line when a great passer is on the ice. The most elegant part of the new rule is that it will work with every season we have already rated, and requires no changes to the FACs or FRCs.

We feel that the above changes, especially the pure passer rule make BigBep the best draft league hockey game ever invented.

The 2007 Year Book includes every team from the past season and all of the skaters and goalies.

  Announcing Ultra Quick Hockey
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Ultra Quick Hockey.

Ultra Quick Hockey is a dual layered game. The first layer allows you to quickly resolve a contest between two NHL teams providing you with a final score.

As with many of our other Ultra Quick games you can easily play out a team's full schedule in a single sitting. Ultra Quick Hockey is the perfect complimentary game to BigBep Hockey, and it also stands well on it's own.

For our initial release we have the 2007 NHL and 2006 LNAH seasons rated. There will be MANY more seasons rated in the days to come.

Unlike many of our other games, Ultra Quick Hockey is only available in printed format.

  History of the American Basketball League
Downey Games is proud to announce our latest year book for Player of the Game Basketball, The History of the American Basketball League.

With this year book, you get the complete 1961-62 ratings as well as the partially completed 62-63 season ratings. Every player to take the court in the ABL is represented in this year book.

The American Basketball League played one full season, 1961-1962, and part of 1962-1963. The league actually folded on December 31, 1962. The ABL was the first basketball league to have a three point shot for baskets scored far away from the goal.

The league was formed when basketball mogul Abe Saperstein did not get the Los Angeles National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise he felt he had been promised in return for his years of supporting the NBA with doubleheader games featuring his Harlem Globetrotters. When Minneapolis Lakers owner Bob Short was permitted to move the Lakers to Los Angeles, Saperstein reacted by convincing National Alliance of Basketball Leagues (NABL) team owner Paul Cohen (Tuck Tapers) and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Champion Cleveland Pipers owner George Steinbrenner to take the top NABL and AAU teams and players and form a rival league. Saperstein and Cohen each secretly made arrangements with local promoters in the other cities to finance those teams so there would be an eight-team league. Saperstein's ego led him to place the Los Angeles Jets in Los Angeles to take on the transplanted Lakers. He got Bill Sharman as coach and signed former NBA players Larry Friend and George Yardley to give the team instant credibility. The idea backfired and the Jets did not last the season.

The multiple radical changes, combined with uneven attendance (although some teams, such as the Kansas City Steers, drew well), and no fresh capital from new owners, caused Saperstein and Cohen to decide to throw in the towel with the close of 1962 on December 31. Just like that, the league that pioneered the three point shot and the wider foul line (both eventually adopted by the rest of the basketball world) was gone. The Philadelphia Tapers, Kansas City Steers, Hawaii Chiefs, Cleveland Pipers and even the Los Angeles Jets after a time all came back and returned to their NABL roots, where they continue to this day as AAU Elite teams.

TOP ABL Players included Johnny Cox, Larry Friend, Bill Spivey, Roger Kaiser, Jeff Cohen, George Yardley, Larry Siegfried, Ben Warley, Connie Dierking, Bill Bridges, Win Wilfong, Gene Conley, Gene Tormohlen, Fred Sawyer, Bevo Francis, Maurice King (basketball player), Nick Romanoff, Charlie Tyra, Sylvester 'Cy' Blye, Roger Taylor, Rick Herrscher, Frank Burgess, Dick Brott, Archie Dees, Larry Swift, Lee Harman, Phil Wilcox, Connie Hawkins, Bruce Spraggins, and Larry Comley.

As with all of our offerings, the Year Books are available in and instant download, E-book format, as well as fully printed Year Books.

  Player of the Game NCAA Version Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of our 2007 NCAA Year Book for Player of the Game Basketball.

Player of the Game Basketball is designed to provide you with a quick method of resolving a basketball game between any two teams. Where this game is truly unique is in its ability to not only provide you with a final score, but it will also give you individual point, rebound and assist totals for each player that participates in the game.


Once you understand the concepts behind the game, you’ll be able to play out a full game in 5 minutes for the basic game, and 7-10 minutes for the advanced game.


We have purposely designed the game to offer two levels of complexity. For those gamers that wish to use Player of the Game Basketball in conjunction with another basketball title that resolves games in a possession by possession manner, the basic version will more than likely provide you with all of the detail that you require. Since the basic version plays quicker, it should be a great tool for single team replayers that want to get a snapshot of the rest of the league.


The advanced version of the game is designed for gamers that wish to conduct a series, or a complete season using only Player of the Game Basketball. The advanced version will provide you with hot and cold streaks for players, as well as a realistic game pace factor that will provide you with a realistic method of reproducing the high and lower scoring affairs that occur in basketball, all with their real-life frequency. The advanced version is a great method of playing cross-era teams to see who was truly better.

Our College Year Book features every player to take the court in 2006-07 at the Division I level. That's right, you read correctly, every player and every Division I team is rated in this year book.

Our College Year Book features a unique Strength of Schedule system, a realistic Home Court Advantage system, as well as individual Pace factors for each team. Play out this year's tournament in a quick fashion with individual statistics! No other imitator can match the speed of play, accuracy or number of current teams rated.

As with all of our products, we offer both printed versions as well as an E-Book format which is available as an instant download.

  The Best of the AWA
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of our latest set for TV Pro Wrestling. We'd also like to thank Rich Dillon for his help with this set.

Our second Old-Time Set for TV Pro Wrestling features the stars of the Minneapolis based territory, the AWA. This set features over 170 new wrestlers, Tage Teams, Managers and referees! This is by far, our largest TV Pro Wrestling set.

The American Wrestling Association (AWA) ran from 1960 to 1991. It was owned and founded by Verne Gagne and Wally Karbo. The territory was originally part of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), becoming an independent territory in the late 1950s. NWA World champion Pat O' Connor was recognized as the first AWA World champion, but when O'Connor failed to defend the new AWA title against number one contender Verne Gagne, Gagne was awarded the belt.

The AWA would become inactive in the fall of 1990.

The influence of Verne Gagne and the AWA as a whole in professional wrestling is immeasurable. Countless wrestlers and personalities were either trained by or received their first big break under Gagne, an influence that is felt to this day.

The Printed version comes on individual, die-cut cards. The link to the printed version is:

2006 Highlights

The regular season week one continued on Sunday, September 10, concluded with the Indianapolis Colts at the New York Giants in what was the first NFL game with two brothers starting at quarterback: Peyton Manning of the Colts and his brother Eli of the Giants.

Then on Monday Night, September 11, there was a doubleheader: the Minnesota Vikings defeating the Washington Redskins, 19-16, which was followed by the San Diego Chargers shutting out the Oakland Raiders, 27-0.

There were only seven bye weeks in 2006 (weeks 3-9). Six teams had open dates in weeks 6 and 7, while four teams had open dates the remaining bye weeks. Previously, there were eight bye weeks (weeks 3-10), with four teams having an open date each week.

Three games were played on Thanksgiving Day. In addition to the traditional annual Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys home games during that day, with the Lions losing to the Miami Dolphins 27-10, and the Cowboys handily trouncing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-10, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos, 19-10, exactly 35 years since their last meeting on Thanksgiving Day in the AFL.

Record Breaking Performances

LaDainian Tomlinson broke the all-time NFL record for most rushing touchdowns in a season, on December 10, when he scored his 29th touchdown against the Denver Broncos, en route to his final total of 31. The previous record belonged to Shaun Alexander, who scored 28 touchdowns for the Seattle Seahawks in 2005. LT then broke the record for most touchdowns in a season the following week, when he ran for two scores against Kansas City, breaking the mark set by Alexander (which he set one season earlier) and Priest Holmes (originally set in 2003). The first touchdown that night broke Paul Hornung's record for most points scored in a season set in a 12-game schedule in 1960. He outscored the entire Oakland Raiders team - 186 points for Tomlinson to the Raiders' 168, and also won the Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player award, receiving 44 out of a possible 50 votes.

Brett Favre set the career mark for most pass completions during the December 17 game against the Detroit Lions as the Green Bay Packers quarterback broke Dan Marino's record when Carlyle Holiday caught a 21-yard pass just prior to halftime. Favre has 4,974 completions, breaking Marino's high water mark of 4,967. The Golden Brett also became the second quarterback to have thrown for 400 touchdowns in a career, with number 400 coming against the Lions on September 24 when he passed five yards to Greg Jennings, and the result was a 75-yard touchdown, and is currently seven passes for touchdowns away from tying Marino's career record of 420 as of December 17.

On December 21, Favre became the first NFL player to throw 5,000 completions, on his final pass of the night. It came on 3rd-and-17 and moved the Packers into field-goal range. Two plays later, Dave Rayner's field goal provided the winning points in Green Bay's 9-7 victory.

Peyton Manning reached 4,000 yards passing for the seventh time in his career on December 24, breaking a tie with Dan Marino for the NFL record. Manning reached the mark on an 8-yard pass to his favorite receiver Marvin Harrison in the second quarter.

Michael Vick became the first NFL quarterback to rush for 1,000 yards in a season on December 24. Vick, who needed only 10 yards to reach the mark, gained 17 on his first carry on the Falcons' opening possession.

Morten Andersen kicked his 2435th point on a PAT against Dallas on the 16th of December thereby setting the record for most career points. On the 24th of December he kicked his 539th career field goal, passing Gary Anderson for the career record.

  2006 LNAH Year Book Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006 Ligue Nord Americaine de Hockey for Big Bep Hockey.

Welcome to the rough and tumble world of the LNAH, the toughest hockey league in the world!

To accurately represent the action of the LNAH, we've introduced a Tough Guy Chart! As in the real just about anything can happen on the ice with this year book.

Here is a bit of info about the league:

The Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH) was founded in 2004 and is a professional league based in the Canadian province of Quebec. It was called the Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League from 1996 to 2004 when it turned pro.

Its teams employ many enforcers and has a rather infamous reputation for on-ice antics that mostly include fisticuffs. The LNAH has the reputation as the world's roughest hockey league.

Despite of this reputation, many of the players are ex-NHL or ex-AHL players; among those playing in the 2005-2006 season were Patrick Cote, Michel Picard, Stephane Richer, Bobby Dollas, Daniel Shank, Denis Chalifoux, Eric Fichaud and Mario Roberge.

The printed season yearbooks come in two formats, a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

We also offer an E-Book format for immediate download.

  1972 NFL Season Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1972 season for Chris Davis' Inside Blitz Football.

Re-live the excitement of the 1972 Pro season with the Inside Blitz 1972 Pro Year Book. All 26 teams are accurately rated to replicate their real-life performances.

The 1972 NFL season was the 53rd regular season of the National Football League. The league decided to change the formula of computing the winning percentage of each team in the standings: Tie games, previously not counted, were made equal to a half-game won and a half-game loss.

The Miami Dolphins completed the first (and currently only) undefeated regular season and postseason record in NFL history when they beat the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl VII.

Can you lead Miami to the Super Bowl and an undefeated season? Or can you lead the Redskins, Packers, Steelers or Cowboys to an upset Super Bowl Victory?

The only way to find out is by ordering the 1972 Professional Year Book!

The Yearbook comes in printed form as well as E-Book format.

You can order either version through the Downey Games web site.

  1968 NHL Season Available
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1967-68 NHL season for BigBep Hockey.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 1967-68 National Hockey League season. The yearbook includes every NHL team and all skaters.

Play out the 1968 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

The 1967-68 NHL season was the 51st season of the National Hockey League. Twelve teams each played 74 games. This season saw the NHL expand from the "Original Six" teams by adding six new franchises. The St. Louis Blues, California Seals, Philadelphia Flyers, Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Los Angeles Kings were all put into the Western Division. On November 6, 1967,1 the California Seals were renamed Oakland Seals. This year also saw the addition of two new awards. With expansion came format change and with format change came a need for a new trophy for the winner of the newly formed West Division. The new trophy, called the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, was for the winner of the West while the older trophy, the Prince of Wales, was for the winner of the East. The other new award was the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which was named in honour of Bill Masterton who died on 15 January, 1968 after sustaining an injury during a game (the first time a NHL player had ever died directly as a result of an on-ice injury).

The St. Louis Blues made a series of the Stanley Cup finals although they lost in four straight games. Glenn Hall was sensational, especially in game three when the Blues were outshot 46 to 15. Wrote Red Burnett, the dean of hockey writers then: "A number of Hall's saves were seemingly impossible. Experts walked out of the Forum convinced no other goaltender had performed so brilliantly in a losing cause." In the overtime of game three, Hall made a spectacular save on Dick Duff and then, standing on his head, made another save. "It was a heartbreaker to see" said Burnett "After the saves on Duff, Bobby Rousseau came and batted home the second rebound." Hall's heroics won him the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs. But Montreal, like a champion, won the Stanley Cup in game four as J.C. Tremblay fired home the winning goal. When the game ended, the fans came on the ice to celebrate, and balloons, hats and programs were thrown from the stands. Jean Beliveau, in a cast and crutches from his broken ankle, with Ralph Backstrom accepted the Cup from NHL president Clarence Campbell and the players did a victory lap with the Cup.

Less than 30 minutes after the Canadiens won the Cup, Canadiens coach Toe Blake announced his retirement. He gave reason that it had been a hard season, but the real reason was that his wife was dying of cancer and he wanted to spent his time with her. The celebration turned to a mournful event with players paying tribute to Blake, many in tears.

Can you lead the Blues to a dramatic upset? Or can you guide the Canadiens to another Stanley Cup?

The printed season yearbooks come in two formats, a printed team sheet offering, or individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

We also offer an e-book version which is available for instant download.

  New TV Pro Wrestling Set
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of their newest set for TV Pro Wrestling.

Our First Old-Time Set for TV Pro Wrestling features the stars of the Georgia territory in the early 80's. This was an exciting time period for the territory, as they had working relationships with the Florida, Memphis and Mid-Atlantic territories and many all-time great stars were featured in the promotion. The territory also featured a weekly television program that aired on WTBS that gained it a national following.

However, that all came to a halt in 1984 in what many have dubbed, "Black Saturday", the day that Vince McMahon bought the territory and the TV time slot.

Well, with TV Pro Wrestling, there is no Black Saturday! All of the stars of the early 80's Georgia Territory are available on your tabletop!

  Announcing BigBep Hockey
Downey Games is proud to announce our latest game, BigBep Hockey. BigBep Hockey is the creation of Don “BigBep” Bee, an avid hockey fan and great game designer.

BigBep Hockey is designed to play quickly while providing accurate statistics. But most of all, the game is designed to “feel” like hockey and provide the gamer with an enjoyable and immersive experience.

BigBep Hockey utilizes a Fast Action Deck and a Fast Results deck to greatly enhance the speed of play. The vast majority of all results are found without consulting outside charts. Once you have learned the rules, contests in BigBep hockey fly by. It’s not unusual to complete a full contest in 30-45 minutes.

While the game plays rapidly, this isn’t a watered down hockey game, nor is it a quick-play game. This is a full-fledged simulation of hockey. In BigBep Hockey each skater is rated for the following: Shooting from various places on the ice, Power Play ability, Penalty Killing ability, Overall Offensive contribution, Overal Defensive Contribution, shots allowed, intimidation, passing, face-offs, injury frequency, times penalized, and a clutch rating. Goalies are also rated for both home and away performance. BigBep Hockey truly captures the entire game of hockey.

Get on the ice today, and order BigBep Hockey.

** The initial release of BigBep Hockey is E-Book only. We will offer printed versions of the game in the very near future. **

BigBep Hockey can be purchased at the Downey Games Web Site.

  Announcing FAS Football
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of FAS College Football.

FAS Football is designed primarily for the solitaire gamer to quickly play out a game while maintaining full statistics in a highly realistic manner. To that end, FAS Football requires only the FAC deck and a team rating sheet for each team. There are no external charts to consult, nor any dice rolls to bog things down. FAS Football is however, not a quick play game. Each play of the game from passing plays, rushing plays and special teams is resolved fully from the team rating sheets and the FAC deck giving you a full statistical recap of the game played. In addition to every play being resolved, every position on the field is important in FAS Football. Offensive lineman, defensive backs, linebackers and even the punter for each team are accurately represented and can have an impact on the game, just as in real-life.

Now that I’ve described just exactly what FAS is, let me describe what it is not.

FAS Football is not a coaching simulation. In order to achieve the objective of a fast playing game tailored to the solitaire gamer, play calling is streamlined. This is not the game for would-be Lombardi’s who want to outwit their opponent. That isn’t to say that your coaching can’t make a difference, as it can. But, the game was designed to accurately simulate each team’s strength’s and weaknesses on the whole, not as a game in which your coaching can manipulate the outcomes.

Where FAS shines as a solitaire game is in its unique system which will allow a gamer to rapidly play out a game with the game engine showing exactly why teams win and lose during the season. For the solitaire gamer, this game will provide you with hours and hours of enjoyment. You have the option of calling plays and ball handlers for one team, both teams, or you can use the game engine to simply watch the action unfold. Anything that can happen in a real-life college football game will happen with the same frequency in FAS Football with uncanny accuracy. We have thoroughly tested the game engine and fully stand behind its accuracy. Teams not only perform in the game as they did in real-life, but individual statistics are also spot-on.

A full play-by-play football game that plays in 30-40 minutes has been the dream of many tabletop gamers. And now with FAS Football, that dream is finally a reality.

FAS College Football comes with team rating sheets for all 119 Division 1A teams from 2005, a die cut Fast Action Deck, complete Rules, score sheets and an attractive game box.

The Board Game can be purchased here:

  1978 Season for Inside Blitz Available
Chris has completed work on the 1978 NFL Season for Inside Blitz. You can purchase the new Year Book at Downey Games.

Re-live the excitement of the 1978 Pro season with the Inside Blitz 1978 Pro Year Book. All 28 teams are accurately rated to replicate their real-life performances.

The 1978 NFL season was the 59th regular season of the National Football League. To increase revenue, the league expanded the regular season from a 14-game schedule to 16. Furthermore, the playoff format was expanded from 8 teams to 10 teams by adding another wild card from each conference. The wild card teams would play each other with the winner advancing to the playoff round of eight teams.

The season ended with Super Bowl XIII when the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys.

Can you lead Dallas to the Super Bowl in a tough NFC? Or will the Rams knock them off?

Will the Pittsburgh team win it all, once again during your replay?

The only way to find out is by ordering the 1978 Professional Year Book!

  Announcing T.V. Pro Wrestling
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of T.V. Pro Wrestling.

T.V. Pro Wrestling is the creation of Jeffrey "Bruiser" Costa and was sold in wrestling arenas during the 70’s and 80’s. Almost 2 years ago, Jeff sent the game to me in its original form, along with some pages of handwritten notes and asked if I would consider updating the game. I couldn’t resist, as for one, I’m a sucker for a wrestling game of any type. And another, I really liked the simplicity and wrestler interaction in the original game.

I felt like T.V. Pro Wrestling could fill the void of the wrestling gamer that wanted a hold-by-hold game, but didn’t want to read through 20 pages of extensive rules, and have matches take 30 minutes or more to resolve. I also wanted to build upon the most popular elements of my own wrestling games, which is storyline generation. And While Vintage Pro Wrestling and Ultra Quick Wrestling are great in what they are designed to accomplish, they do leave a bit of a void as far as the actual in-ring action goes. For some gamers, this isn’t an issue. For others, this is a stumbling block they just can’t get past. I’ve looked for a solution since the release of both games that would please both camps of wrestling gamers.

The updated game is my attempt at such a solution. I believe that T.V. Pro Wrestling plays rapidly, has great wrestler interaction, and also has a means to drive storylines within your wrestling universe. I also think that the original engine, which I’ve tried to stay true to, is wonderful for both solitaire and multiple player gaming. With T.V. Pro Wrestling two player matches with each player guiding a wrestler is a blast! And it also plays great solitaire.

Finally, both Bruiser and I share the same philosophy when it comes to wrestling games. The games need to be simple enough to play and understand that children can enjoy them. While also maintaining the "realism" and exciting game play elements that keep veteran gamers coming back for more.

I think that we have succeeded on all counts. We hope that you agree!

We have also included the original 8-page game booklet that was sold in wrestling arenas as a bit of nostalgia. After 20+ years the original game still stands well on its own.

For the intial release, we have tirelessly rated the 2006 season. Now you can play with all of the stars you see on T.V. Our Monday Night Set features every star to compete on Monday Nights in the National Promotion. The Tuesday Night set includes every wrestler that has competed and/or signed a contract to compete on this "rebirth" of the X-treme classic promotion. The Thursday night set features all of the stars of the Orlando based promotion. And finally, our Friday night set features all of the wrestlers that appear in the National Promotion.

All 4 sets offer over 200 wrestler's rated. All major tag-teams are represented as are all of the managers, valets, and ringside allies. These are the most complete represenations of current wrestling you'll find!

Order T.V. Pro Wrestling and get in the ring today!

T.V. Pro Wrestling is available now from Downey Games, as are all 4 yearbooks. We also offer a Deluxe package that is 25% off the normal price!

** A percentage of all proceeds of TV Pro Wrestling are donated to the Cauliflower Alley Club, which is an organization that helps current and retired wrestlers **

In addition to the additional fighter, I have tweaked thousands of previously rated fighters for greater accuracy.

  Announcing Table Tennis Fury
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Table Tennis Fury. Table Tennis Fury is the first game design by Mike Glaze to be published by Downey Games.

If you were under that impression that Table Tennis is a “minor” sport, you would be mistaken.
Table Tennis is second only to Soccer in terms of all organized sports in the world. In 1996 there
were 18.2 million people in the United States alone who played the game. And among the
developed nations of the world America is the last to discover the sport on a major scale. Table
Tennis is truly an international sport. The game is played on every continent on Earth. Currently
the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) lists over 2100 ranked players representing 129
countries world wide. And these are just the players who regularly compete in ITTF sanctioned
events worldwide. This does not take into account all of the national associations which hold
regular competitions and the innumerable local “club” competitions and players all over the
world. In the United States alone there are nearly 400 local clubs where amateurs, male and
female, old and young, and members of all races and creeds participate in the sport on a daily
basis. There are even more people who participate in the sport in Asia and Europe, the true Hot
Beds of the sport. And then you can throw in all of the people who just play for their own
amusement and don’t participate in “organized” play. And the sport is growing fast. Earlier this
year the President of the ITTF announced that there were now 200 national associations that
were members of the ITTF. At the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, table tennis was twentyfourth
out of twenty-six sports in terms of television coverage. In Athens in 2004 table tennis
was fifth out of twenty-eight sports!!

Table Tennis Fury brings all of the excitement of the sport to your tabletop! Players are rated for the following skills:

Sv – Serve – Ability to put a valid serve in play.
Rt – Return – Ability to return valid serves. This must be the first shot taken after a serve.
Vo – Volley – The ability to keep the ball in play.
Sm– Smash – An extremely hard shot, usually made with heavy top spin applied.
Sp – Spin – The ability to put really strong, sometimes weird English on the ball. This rating also
incorporates “dink”, or Drop shots and any other valid shot that catches the net and remains in
play, but requires a quick reaction by the defender.
Bs – Back Spin – Heavy reverse spin that tends to “kill” the bounce of the ball.
Ki – Killer Instinct – The ability to favorably and immediately resolve the current point.
Players are rated for both offensive and defensive ability in all of the above ratings.

The game utilizes a unique Fast Action Deck to provide extremely quick and smooth play. The game also has a quick-play version to allow you to quickly play through a tournament, while using the shot-by-shot method for the big matches.

Table Tennis Fury ships with 250 fictional male players from all countries of the world.

Bring the excitement of table tennis to your gaming table today!

  Funny Cars Released for Championship Drag Racing
Re-live the excitement of the 2005 Funny Car Season. The 2005 Season was one of the closest Points races in the history of the sport. The top 3 drivers were separated by a mere 32 points, and the top 10 in points were separated by an amazing 442 points.
Anything that can happen in a real life drag racing event; can and will happen with the same frequency in Championship Drag Racing. Drivers will red-light, have tremendous reaction times, blow up their engines, and even crash with the same frequency as the year represented. And as with any replay game that is worth its salt there are allowances made within the confines of realistic frequency for ANYTHING to truly happen.

In general, your results will be very close to the on-the-track action of the season represented. However, keep in mind, that this game simulates hundreds of variables that can occur in any race. As with any sport, sometimes pure luck can be the deciding factor. That’s no exception with Championship Drag Racing. On the whole, you’ll experience very realistic results. But, within the confines of a single qualifying run or elimination race, anything can truly happen!

Championship Drag Racing: Funny Car Edition gives you every Funny Car Racer that made a qualifying attempt in 2005. You also get all 23 circuits rated by lane making the lane choice strategy just as important as real life. A full schedule, complete points standings, complete final ladders for each event, as well as a list of drivers that attempted to make every field are included.

Can you set a new Elapsed Time Record, or a new Top Speed Record? Will John Force prevail for another championship on your tabletop? Or will Ron Capps or Gary Scelzi take the crown? Order today and find out!

Championship Drag Racing Top Fuel Edition or the Funny Car Edition can be purchased from Downey Games.

  Championship Drag Racing Released
Downey Games Announces its newest release, Championship Drag Racing:Top Fuel Edition.

For years I’ve tried to create a realistic and playable drag racing simulation without much success. When I first attempted a game design based upon the sport, elapsed times were still in the 5 second bracket and the record speed was still below 300 miles per hour. Last year, Tony Schumacher set a record E.T. of 4.437 seconds and a top speed of over 337 miles per hour. So, as you can see, I’ve been at this design for quite sometime. Heck, well before there was even a thought of Downey Games.

One of the challenges of capturing drag racing on the tabletop is the side-by-side racing, and the sheer speed and quickness of the sport. In other tabletop games I’ve been able to create a game that plays MUCH faster on the tabletop than in reality. With drag racing, this certainly isn’t possible. And replicating the simultaneous on-track action, in which the winner and loser are sometimes separated by thousandths of a second is a much greater challenge then one would think.

After years of trying, I’ve finally arrived at a final product in which I’m extremely happy, and I think captures the sport as best as possible. And while rolling a game of Championship Drag Racing will take a bit longer than a 4.5 second Elapsed Time, I really think the flow of the game is done very well. The average gamer should easily be able to knock out an event in a single sitting while experiencing all of the drama and excitement of a real-life drag racing event.

Anything that can happen in a real life drag racing event; can and will happen with the same frequency in Championship Drag Racing. Drivers will red-light, have tremendous reaction times, blow up their engines, and even crash with the same frequency as the year represented. And as with any replay game that is worth its salt there are allowances made within the confines of realistic frequency for ANYTHING to truly happen.

In general, your results will be very close to the on-the-track action of the season represented. However, keep in mind, that this game simulates hundreds of variables that can occur in any race. As with any sport, sometimes pure luck can be the deciding factor. That’s no exception with Championship Drag Racing. On the whole, you’ll experience very realistic results. But, within the confines of a single qualifying run or elimination race, anything can truly happen!

Championship Drag Racing: Top Fuel Edition gives you every Top Fuel Racer that made a successful qulaifying attempt in 2005. You also get all 23 circuits rated by lane making the lane choice strategy just as important as real life. A full schedule, complete points standings, complete final ladders for each event, as well as a list of drivers that attempted to make every field are included.

Can you set a new Elapsed Time Record, or a new Top Speed Record? Order today and find out!

  Data Boxing Now Offered by Downey Games
I am pleased to announce that Downey Games has added Data Boxing to its catalog of games.

Data Boxing is considered by many to be the most accurate and most detailed boxing simulation ever created. The game designer, Dr. Julian Compton, tirelessly researches each fighter, and creates a boxer’s cards using actual data and statistics, rather than an arbitrary rating system. Each boxer card in Data Boxing has upwards of 150 variables all of which are based upon actual fight data for ever boxer rated. Dr. Compton has designed a data gathering procedure that is unlike anything else in the boxing world. For each and every fight, he counts lefts and rights to the head and body, for landed punches and misses. He also notes whether the blows were offensive in nature or defensive. But, that’s not all. He also counts and scores ALL controls, spits, insults and anything else that may happen in a bout. That data is then compiled and used in creating the boxer cards for Data Boxing. When you have a Data Boxing “card”, you can be assured that it contains more detail and accuracy than any other game on the market.

The agreement in place with Dr. Compton and Don Mankowski, extends beyond the traditional board game. Downey Games will also offer the new PC version 7.0 of Data Boxing. Don has worked for over a year and a half on the new version, and I am very excited, and think you will be too with the additions to the game. The computer game is a faithful recreation of the board game. However, it’s designed in a way that even if you’ve never seen a Data Boxing card or rule book, you’ll still garner a great deal of enjoyment. And you can rest assured that the exact detail that goes into the Data Boxing ratings is the same in the PC version of the game. While there may be other computer boxing games on the market, Data Boxing is a true simulation of the sport.

In addition to the new PC version of the game, Downey Games will also produce a revised and updated version of the board game. This will be done with the same care and quality of any of the other Downey Games offerings.

One of the consistent comments about the Data Boxing board game is that it can be harder than most games to learn. With the revised board game, I hope to completely dispel that myth. The rules to the game will be easy to understand and will fully encompass the many options within the game. Previously offered printed versions of the game have been haphazardly thrown together and poorly edited, which has led to the steep learning curve expressed by some gamers. In fact, the last printed version was compiled with the instructions out of order. You can rest assured that the revised version won’t be plagued by the same problems.

Finally, the three of us, Dr. Compton, Don and I will be readily available on the Data Boxing Forum at tabletop-sports.com to address any issues and answer any of your questions about the games. We will also be available to talk boxing in general if you are so inclined.

I am very excited about this partnership, and hope that you are as well. In the immediate future, we will release more details as to the release of the computer and board versions of the game.

I thank you all for your time in reading this release.

  Announcing Player of the Game Basketball
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of Player of the Game Basketbll. The game is offered in E-book format which is an instant download, or a printed version. You can purchase the game at the Downey Games website.

Player of the Game Basketball is designed to provide you with a quick method of resolving a basketball game between any two teams. Where this game is truly unique is in its ability to not only provide you with a final score, but it will also give you individual point, rebound and assist totals for each player that participates in the game.

Once you understand the concepts behind the game, you’ll be able to play out a full game in 5 minutes for the basic game, and 7-10 minutes for the advanced game.

We have purposely designed the game to offer two levels of complexity. For those gamers that wish to use Player of the Game Basketball in conjunction with another basketball title that resolves games in a possession by possession manner, the basic version will more than likely provide you with all of the detail that you require. Since the basic version plays quicker, it should be a great tool for single team replayers that want to get a snapshot of the rest of the league.

The advanced version of the game is designed for gamers that wish to conduct a series, or a complete season using only Player of the Game Basketball. The advanced version will provide you with hot and cold streaks for players, as well as a realistic game pace factor that will provide you with a realistic method of reproducing the high and lower scoring affairs that occur in basketball, all with their real-life frequency. The advanced version is a great method of playing cross-era teams to see who was truly better.

Get in the game today, order Player of the Game Basketball.

  2006 Ultra Quick College Hoops Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006 version of Ultra Quick College Hoops. Now, you can play the tournament games BEFORE they happen! As always, you can order the E-Book version (instant download) or the printed version at the Downey Games web site.

Ultra-Quick College Hoops features over 2000 teams from the 2005-2006 college basketball season. All Men's teams belonging to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Divisions 1, 2 and 3, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA), the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), the Canadian Interuniversity Sport league (CIS), the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), the Association of Christian College Athletics (ACCA), and the Women's NCAA Division 1. That's over 700 teams more than last year's version of UQ College Hoops! No other game comes even remotely close to rating as many teams!

Ultra-Quick College Hoops allows you to easily complete a tournament or team schedule in one easy sitting, without sacrificing realism. Included in each game are the tournament brackets for every division rated.

I’ve made several modifications this season, in an effort to make the scoring and results even more true to life. All of the teams have their TEMPO reflected in both OFF and DEF ratings. This makes the final scores much more in line with real life scoring.

  Announcing Vintage Pro Wrestling VOL 3
Downey Games has released Vintage Pro Wrestling Volume 3. You can purchase an E-Book or a printed Book from the Downey Games web site.

The theme for Vintage Pro Wrestling Volume 3 is the gimmick. Rather that compile a group of bad or good gimmicks, I’ve chosen 41 men that made the best of the gimmicks given to them. Everyone contained in Volume 3 was tremendously over with the crowd during their gimmick. At times, the gimmick may have seemed ridiculously insane at first inspection, but these men made it work.

The sign of a true professional in wrestling is someone that can draw heat under any circumstance. The men contained in this book may not have been multiple time Champions, and some may have been used solely to put over other wrestlers. But, every one of these men are true professionals in every sense of the word.

So here’s our tribute to the gimmick!

Included in Volume 3 are the following 41 wrestlers and managers:

"Exotic" Adrian Street
"Adorable" Adrian Adonis
"Love Machine" Art Barr
Bam Bam Bigelow
Bruiser Costa
Bastian Booger
Big Boss Man
Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake
The Brooklyn Brawler
"Apache" Bull Ramos
"Bushwhacker" Butch Miller
Disco Inferno
Doink the Clown
Earthquake
El Olympico
Giant Gonzalez
The Godfather
Goldust
Hugh Morrus
Irwin R Schyster
Jushin "Thunder" Liger
Kamala the Ugandan Giant
Kane
Kevin Sullivan
Koko B. Ware
"The Genius" Lanny Poffo
LaParka
"Captain" Lou Albano
"Bushwhacker" Luke Williams
Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon
Mil Mascaras
The Missing Link
"Screamin" Norman Smiley
Sir Oliver Humperdink
One Man Gang
Paul "Butcher" Vachon
Terry "Red Rooster" Taylor
Special Delivery Jones
Shark Boy
Typhoon/Tugboat
"Dangerous" Danny Davis

Bjorn Borg had an outstanding season in 1980, going 20-1 in Grand Slam matches, and 60-6 overall. Borg captured the first two legs of the Grand Slam in capturing the French Open and Wimbledon. Young, upstart, John McEnroe stopped Borg at Flushing Meadows in the US Open in one of the greatest men's matches of all time. American, Brian Teacher, captured the Australian Open, when many of the top stars skipped the tournament in favor of spending the Holiday Season at home.

Other top contenders in 1980 were:
Jimmy Connors
Roscoe Tanner
Andres Gomez
Tomas Smid
Stan Smith
Ivan Lendl
Vitas Gerulaitis
Guillermo Vilas

  All-Time Great Sets For Main Event Boxing Released
I am happy to announce the release of 4 sets of All-Time Great Boxers for Main Event Boxing. I have broken the sets up, as I have a sizeable audience that orders printed versions of the games. All told, the printed versions of Main Event and the Supplements weigh in at over 200 printed pages! To keep costs reasonable, and hopefully, to allow gamers to pick and choose sets they are interested in, I've broken up the fighters by divisions across 4 sets.

Below, is a brief description of each set.

All-Time Great and Not so Great Heavyweights- With this supplement, you get over 1900 Heavyweight Boxers that have competed from the 1800's up to present time.

As the name implies, you’ll get all of the Great Heavyweight fighters like Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Rocky Marciano, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman. You’ll also receive some less than memorable fighters like Ted Wilson who was 1-10 and KO’d 8 times.

Why include fighters like Wilson you may ask? The answer is simple. With over 1900 fighters you’ll be able to re-create many career replays for individual fighters against their actual opponents. No other game can even begin to offer you that!

Or perhaps you’d like to see how a fighter like Ken Norton would have done had he fought in the 30’s. With this supplement, you’ll be able to do just that, as you’ll have a wealth of fighters that competed then at your disposal.

As an added bonus, I’ve also included modern fighters rated in an All-Time Heavyweight context, as well as Cuban amateur great Teofilo Stevenson.

This supplement covers all of the bases when it comes to Heavyweight Boxing.

ATG Set 1- This All-Time Great set covers The Cruiserweight, Light Heavyweight, Super Middleweight, Middleweight and Light Middleweight divisions. This set includes over 1600 fighters!

You’ll get great names like Gene Tunney, Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Marcel Cerdan, Jake LaMotta and many, many others.

ATG Set 2- This All-Time Great set covers the Welterweight, Light Welterweight, Super Flyweight, Flyweight, Light Flyweight and Strawweight divisions. This set includes over 1600 fighters!

You’ll get names like Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Henry Armstrong, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Khaosai Galaxy plus many, many more.

ATG Set 3- This All-Time Great set covers the Lightweight, Super Featherweight, Featherweight, Super Bantamweight, and Bantamweight divisions. This set includes over 1600 fighters!

You’ll get names like Roberto Duran, Joe Gans, Benny Leonard, Eder Jofre, Fighting Harada, and Wilfredo Gomez plus many, many more.

As always, you can order the supplements from the Downey Games web site.

  New Second Season Chart Book Delayed Slightly
Pete Ventura sent along the following:

Dear Second Season Pro Football Players,

Here at Replay Sports Games we've been working hard to get the new-format Second Season Game Book ready for its debut. We expected to begin shipping new game books by today, but last-minute problems at the printing and tabbing company doing this job for us have slowed the process for up to two more weeks. We sincerely apologize for the delay, especially to all of you have pre-ordered, and we're eager to get these out to you as soon as we have the completed materials here in-house. The new expected shipping date is October 15th, which should be conservative (we hope to beat that date!) In the meantime, we hope you can have fun rolling a few games of Replay Baseball, Replay Basketball, or the original PLAAY version of Second Season Pro Football!

  First Fictional UQW Set Available
I have been asked several times to produce a fictional set of wrestlers for Ultra Quick Wrestling. After some convincing by Jon and others, I have relented, and am now releasing Midwest Professional Wrestling- The Beginning.

This is a fictional set for Ultra Quick Wrestling. If demand is strong enough, I will update this series every few months.

Here is the story for the set. Each wrestler also has a brief bio within the set.

After years of stagnation the landscape of professional wrestling changed. The single, dominant promotion folded as fans lost interest and stock prices plummeted. With no major promotions, wrestling went back to its roots, and several territories were established. And while some promotions made bad business decisions and had to fold along the way, the sport on the whole was seeing resurgence in popularity and fan support.

You have ventured into the world of professional wrestling promoting by establishing Midwest Professional Wrestling (MPW). The Midwestern territory spans parts of 7 states (Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and Michigan) and has some of the most rabid fans in all of professional wrestling. On paper everything looks perfect for a long, profitable career as a wrestling promoter.

However, as is often the case, what looks good on paper doesn’t always mesh with reality. Your roster of 68 wrestlers is balanced with big-name stars as well as promising rookies. However, unbeknownst to you, you may have stepped right into a hornet’s nest.

Before you established MPW, the territory was controlled by 3 family-run promotions which all failed for various reasons. The primary and underlying reason though, was the bitter hatred among the three families. These three families would raid, steal, and sabotage the other promotions in hopes of ridding themselves of the competition. Ultimately it killed all three promotions. And now, the main players from those three families, the Bowling Family, the Dowling Family, and the Neilson Family are among your roster of wrestlers.

And while none of the families have any outward resentment towards you, as they know you are their payday. It is up to you to keep them from destroying each other outside the confines of the squared circle. Can you make it work? Can you utilize the intense personal feuds within the promotion to draw money? The challenge is yours!

Midwest Professional Wrestling- The Beginning comes with 48 fictional male wrestlers, 2 special edition wrestlers, 18 fictional female wrestlers, and 6 managers.

A sample wrestler card is pictured at: http://downeygames.tabletop-sports.com/images/UQWrestMPW.jpg

  Announcing the 1973 Eastern Territory for UQW
Downey Games is proud to announce our latest Ultra Quick Wrestling Yearbook, the 1973 Eastern Territory.

The year 1973 was a fascinating year for the Eastern Territory as they conducted several Inter-promotional cards with other territories, as well as importing several big names from other territories for one or two night cards. 1973 also saw the World Title change hands twice, which was a rare feat for the time period. To give you an idea of the rarity of the occasion, Bruno Sammartino who recaptured the belt in late 1973 held on to it for another 7 years!

With the 1973 Yearbook, Downey Games is introducing a new set of charts and a new rule or two to capture the essence of the time period. As I’m sure you are aware, wrestling was much different than today in the 70’s. Matches lasted much longer than today’s 10 minute affairs, and while professional wrestling has always included angles and story lines, they were toned down in comparison to the soap opera style of wrestling of the late 90’s to present day. Wrestling in the 1970’s focused primarily on the in-ring action. As previously mentioned, titles didn’t change hands very often, many matches ended in draws, double count outs, disqualification, or one or both of the wrestlers may have been too bloody to continue.

With the introduction of a new series of charts, I feel that I have truly captured the time period without sacrificing any of the playability of Ultra Quick Wrestling. Of course, if you prefer to “transport” the wrestlers of 1973 to modern times, there is nothing stopping you from using the current basic or advanced charts. However, if you do want to replay a true 1970’s wrestling world, I think you’ll really enjoy the new charts.

The 1973 Eastern Territory Yearbook is our largest to date. You'll get 165 Male Wrestlers, 17 Female Wrestlers, 10 Midget Wrestlers and six managers.

You can purchase the Yearbook or E-Book at the Downey Games Website.

  Announcing Ultra Quick Tennis
Announcing Ultra-Quick Tennis!


My goal in designing this game was to develop a mechanism to quickly play through a tennis tournament.  With other tennis games, either the game took too long to realistically complete a full tournament, or the game was too simplistic and produced far too many upsets.  As with all of my games, I wanted a quick playing design that closely mirrored reality in the tennis world. The end result is a game that I’m very proud of.  


Ultra-Quick Tennis has been thoroughly tested for statistical accuracy.  I am extremely confident that the formulas employed in the game accurately represent each player.  To make it a game, I’ve added some elements of chance, as well as some rare play results.  Overall, I think you’ll find the winners to be o­n par with what you would reasonably expect.


 Ultra Quick Tennis includes over 300 professional men from the 2004 ATP Tour and well over 600 professional women from the 2004 WTA Tour.  Also included are the full schedules for both Tours.


Players are accurately rated for each playing surface found o­n the respective Tours.  You'll experience the sheer dominance of Roger Federer o­n grass.  Clay court specialists like Guillermo Coria will shine at Roland Garros, but prove to be mortal o­n the hard courts at the US Open.  Every player will realistically perform as they did in actual tennis competition during the 2004 campaign.


All of the unusual events that can happen in tennis like injuries, retirements, loss of concentration, arguing line calls all happen in Ultra Quick Tennis as well.


 The ball is in your court, purchase Ultra Quick Tennis today! 


You can purchase the Printed Version of the game <a href="http://downeygames.tabletop-sports.com/index.php?cat_id=18&catname=%27Tennis%20Board%20Games%27">here.</a>

  Announcing the Best of WCCW
When I first released Ultra Quick Wrestling in May, I was privately commisioned by an owner to create a Best of World Class Championship Wrestling set, based on the wildly popular Dallas promotion. Upon the set’s completion, the owner was so pleased with the results, that he told me to place the set in the game’s official add-ons. So, I present to you The Best of World Class Championship Wrestling!

The set spans the time period of the Promotions last days of affiliation with the NWA up until the eventual and official demise of WCCW in 1991. This set offers a virtual who’s who of wrestling. “Outsider’s” like Ric Flair, Harley Race, Dory Funk Jr. and Jerry Lawler would often join the already star-studded lineup for special programs.

In many ways, WCCW was well ahead of their time in terms of presentation. World Class was “hardcore” before the wrestling world had even heard of the now cliché term. The promotion was angle-driven and featured a wide variety of gimmick matches where blood would often times flow like a river. This was definitely in stark contrast to the rock ‘n wrestle movement.

WCCW was also very adept at creating and rotating the “monster” heel to lace in the path of their baby faces. WCCW had some of the most hated personas of the time period, like Skandor Akbar, Gary Hart and Killer Kahn.

Many great Tag-Teams also competed in the territory like the Rock and Roll Express, the Fabulous Freebirds, and The Dynamic Duo.

Overall, you’d be hard pressed to find a better promotion for tabletop gaming. Solid front-line Heels, wildly popular baby faces, great tag-teams and top managers are all included in our best of WCCW. I truly don’t think you’ll find a more wide-open, gaming friendly set than the Best of WCCW. As I often say with Ultra Quick Wrestling, the only limit is your own imagination.

The Best of WCCW is our most complete set to date. It features 132 wrestlers, 8 managers/valets, complete history of the World Title, Television Title, World Tag Titles, Wold Six-man Tag Titles, World Light-Heavyweight Title, Texas Heavyweight Title and the Texas Tag-Team Titles. And if that’s not enough, you also get a list of often used tag-teams in the promotion, as well as a list of clients for each manager/valet.

  Ultra Quick Wrestling 2004-05 Yearbook Available
After several inquiries, I've decided to release the 2004-05 Yearbook for Ultra Quick Wrestling.

The 2004-05 yearbook brings 144 new wrestlers into your Ultra Quick Universe. All of the major promotions are represented as well as the top Indy performers. All wrestlers are rated for the entire 2004 season, as well as the first 6 months of 2005.

The ratings are "normalized", so you can mix and match wrestlers from different promotions, and still have an "accurate" universe. I've accomplished this by weighting wins in the various promotions, as well as weighting wins by weight class. The 2004-05 ratings are also compatible with the previously released 1991 yearbook as well.

The match-ups are endless!

  Ultra Quick Wrestling Available
Imagine a Wrestling Game in which you can complete several full fledged wrestling cards in one sitting. Well, imagine no more, that’s exactly what you’ll get with Ultra Quick Wrestling!

With Ultra Quick Pro Wrestling, you’ll have an entire world of Professional Wrestling at your fingertips. The game not only resolves winners and losers of matches, but all of theatrical and bizarre story lines of Pro Wrestling will unfold before your very eyes.

Ultra Quick Pro Wrestling Comes with 84 wrestler cards from the 1991 Season. I’m sure that many might wonder why 1991? What was so special about that year?

While on the surface, perhaps 1991is not remembered for any historical events in the annals of Pro Wrestling. However, upon closer examination, 1991 is a perfect year for a wrestling game. Firstly, wrestling was still considered kayfabe in 1991. (Meaning that rather than the “sports entertainment” of today, the wrestlers and promoters still tried to convince everyone that pro wrestling was not a staged event.)

There were also still many territories in 1991 that have long since disappeared in today’s market. These territories produced many local stars, and intriguing storylines on a regional basis. But, it also created many what-if scenarios in the minds of wrestling fans. Due to the territorial structure of the time period many dream match-ups never happened. (A prime Ric Flair vs. Prime Hulk Hogan match, for example.) In the context of a game, these match-ups, plus many more are possible.

And finally, 1991 was a year of great transition. Hulk Hogan dropped the Title to Ultimate Warrior. Opening the door for other stars to grab the limelight, like Randy Savage, the fore mentioned Warrior and Curt Hennig. Ric Flair, the long-time NWA Title Holder left his southern home and headed north to Stamford. Flair was bold enough to even throw the NWA title in the trash on National TV. This opened the door for wrestlers like Sting, Lex Luger, and Ricky Steamboat. All-in-all, 1991 was a wonderful year for emerging superstars and fairly open competition. And it is now the back drop for our game.

Not to worry though, if 1991 isn’t your favorite time period. If demand warrants, Downey Games will create many more seasons, as well as All-Time Great sets for your wrestling enjoyment.


Ultra Quick Wrestling covers all of the bases. The only limit to the possibilities is your own imagination!

Ultra Quick Wrestling is available in PDF format for $10.95 and in printed format for $16.95 plus Shipping.

The Printed Version of the game comes with 84 wrestler cards on sturdy 110 lb. card stock.

You can purchase either version at http://downeygames.tabletop-sports.com

  New All-Time Heavyweights for Ultra Quick Boxing

As with the game, I offer the supplement in two formats, printed and E-book.

The E-book version can be purchased for $10 the printed version is $14.95 plus $5.00 shipping in the US.  All orders are shipped through the US Postal Service, Priority Mail.

Email me directly for shipping outside the US.

The Ultra Quick Boxing game is required to use the supplement.

  Two New Games from Downey Games
Announcing two new games from Downey Games...


Ultra-Quick Boxing-

My goal in designing this game was to develop a mechanism to quickly play through a series of matches to accumulate fighter records, while playing the marquee match-ups with more detailed boxing simulations. The end result is a game that I’m very proud of.

Ultra-Quick boxing is the culmination of over 3 years of data entry and statistical research of professional boxing. Boxers in Ultra-Quick Boxing will perform as their real-life counterparts in Wins, Losses, and Knockout Percentage. There are even rare, unusual results the replicate the wild and sometimes wacky world of professional boxing.

As in real boxing, champions will be harder to out-point. There are even provisions for fighters performing in front of their hometown!

Ultra-Quick Boxing features 1500 current boxers in every weight class! You won't find any other boxing game with as many fighters. You'll easily be able to complete hundreds of bouts in a single sitting. There are even optional campaign rules to account for fighters progressing and declining. All without sacrificing an ounce of realism.

Ultra-Quick Boxing is sold in two different formats.

For those that want a price break, as well as the immediate gratification of owning the game, I offer an E-book format for $10.75. With this version, you'll print the chart and boxer sheets yourself.

I also offer an printed version of the game for $19.95 plus $4.25 Shipping.


Ultra-Quick College Hoops-

Ultra-Quick College Hoops features over 1300 teams from the 2003-2004 college basketball season in Men's Division I, Women's Division I, Men's Division II, and Men's Division III. No other game rates as many teams!

Teams in Ultra-Quick College Hoops are rated for Wins, Losses, Scoring Average, Defense, and Strength of Schedule. And if that isn't enough, EVERY team is also rated for their ability to perform in overtime.

Ultra-Quick College Hoops allows you to easily complete a tournament or team schedule in one easy sitting, without sacrificing realism. Included in each game are the tournament brackets for every division rated.

Ultra-Quick College Hoops is sold in two different formats.

For those that want a price break, as well as the immediate gratification of owning the game, I offer an E-book format for $5.75. With this version, you'll print the chart and boxer sheets yourself.

I also offer an printed version of the game for $11.95 plus $4.25 Shipping.


The E-book format will be mailed to your valid email address as soon as I process the order. (May take up to 24 hours)

Printed Games will ship within 48 hours of receiving the order. For those that order the printed version of Ultra-Quick College Hoops, I'll make every effort to see that you get the game as soon as possible so you can play along with the current tournaments.

I have a detailed website coming soon. For now, you can either order through PayPal: jeff@tabletop-sports.

Or, send a check or money order payable to:

Much more information about the players and teams that season is included, including as-played schedules, complete in-season roster moves, team writeups and more.

The 2003 season yearbook is a our largest to-date, with ratings for every batter with at least 20 AB and every pitcher with at least 20 IP.

  Wanna Play Some One-on-One?
Time Travel Games have released a new one-on-one basketball game.

Here are the details from Anthony of Time Travel Games:

For those of you interested, a brief sales pitch; I want to let you know we're selling a new game called One on One, which is a basketball game that allows you to create the one on one playground experience with basketball stars.

The game comes with over 300 players, from early pioneers of the cage era (Pop Gates, John Wooden)to all the usual suspects (Michael, Shaq, Wilt), from playground legends (Earl The Goat Manigault, Joe Hammond, Pee Wee Kirkland)to international players (Oscar, Sergei Belov)to even some of the Harlem Globetrotters(Curly Neal, Meadowlark Lemon). Even LaBron and Carmello are included.

The players are rated for everything: ability to create shots, shooting, blocks/steals, hustle, foul drawing, defense, rebounding, dunking and defense against, etc. Many have "signature columns" where they will execute their strengths, such as David Thompson's dunking, or World B. Free's high, arcing jumper.

Players choose from five offensive options which they are all rated for: Jumper, Back-In/Low Post, Power Move down the lane, Shake and Bake (creating a shot), and Driving for a layup/dunk.

Game preperation takes about 5 minutes to do a few calculations, and playing a game takes about 20 minutes; less, if Jordan or Wilt are playing. Cost is only $10.00 plus 2.00 postage and handling, 12.00 total. It's not on our website yet, so e-mail me directly at jakemotta@aol.com with questions, comments, orders.

  New Mixed Martial Arts Game!
I wanted to tell everyone that for the first time, there is a mixed martial arts board game. You can play matches with the greatest fighters from around the world using Japanese, American, or Vale Tudo rules. We have been selling it for just a couple of weeks and we've been getting very good response. The game sells for just under $20 (including s&h). You can read all the details about it at: <A href="http://strikeorsubmit.tripod.com./" target=_blank>http://strikeorsubmit.tripod.com.</A>

Here is a sample match played with Strike or Submit:

Josh Barnett vs. Randy Couture (American Championship Fight Rules)

Our final fight of the evening would be a rematch from an earlier championship fight in America that resulted in a storm of controversy. The first controversy came from the finish of the fight, where many claimed the referee intervened to end the bout in Barnetts favor too early. The second controversy came after the fight, when Barnetts pre-match steroid test came back positive, yet the result of the fight was never changed to a No Contest. Both fighters still held bitter feelings over the match and the events surrounding it, so there score would be settled in S!O!S!

Barnett started the payback match off with a tactic employed by many of our fighters tonight: attempt to surprise an opponent who is thought to be a better wrestler with a takedown. And like most of the other attempts, this o­ne failed as well. Barnett did not let it discourage his attack, however, as he launched a high kick against Couture that, unfortunately for Josh, Randy caught and took him down off of. o­n the ground, Couture exhibited his strength by pushing the larger Barnett up against the cage and beginning to pound him. Barnett tried to defend, but Coutures punches were getting through; in fact, they were scoring so well that Barnett was soon sporting a nasty cut o­n his forehead! The doctor checked the cut, but Barnett pleaded with him to be able to continue and assured him that he could see fine, which probably was not true. Restarted in the guard, Couture mixed elbows with his punches. Barnett tried to escape to the up position, but Couture blocked his effort and continued pounding as the round ended.

Round o­ne Scoring: 10-8 Couture

Couture began the second round by copying the approach that had worked so well for him in his previous fights. Knowing that Barnett was looking for the takedown, Couture hoped to surprise him by punching first, then shooting the takedown. The strategy worked to perfection; Couture scored with a right cross and followed it with an immediate takedown. Trying to avoid Randys ground and pound, Barnett attempted a triangle choke. Couture worked through the hold, got in close and began butting Barnett with shoulder rams. Barnett, however, showing much more vigor than he had in the first round, pushed Couture away and escaped to the up position. Back standing, Couture moved in and was successful with another cross, but Barnett struck back with an assault of big punches! Couture looked wobbly, but he managed to defend against a follow-up Barnett takedown attempt and hold o­n until the conclusion of the round.

Round Two Scoring: 10-9 Barnett

At the start of the third, Couture seemed to have shaken off the effects of the previous round and perhaps mentally strengthened by the fact that he had been hit by some of his foes biggest blows and survived, he showed no hesitancy in throwing and landing another right hand. Surprisingly, Barnett responded to the punch with another takedown attempt, and even more surprisingly, it worked! Barnett now had a chance to punish Couture with his own ground and pound, the same tactic he had employed to beat Randy in the first fight. Couture, aware of the danger he was in, wrapped Barnett up and refused to let go until much to Barnetts chagrin, the referee stood them up. Barnett attempted another takedown, but lightning would not strike twice, as Couture blocked it and retaliated with yet another right cross. Couture then shot in with a takedown of his own and succeeded. Now it was Barnett turn to play the stall game, as he clinched with Couture until the referee was forced to o­nce again restart the fighters standing, with an admonishment for their lack of ground activity. With the final seconds of the phase ticking away, Barnett tried to steal the round (and possibly end the fight) with another attack of punches! While the crowd cheered for the heavy shots being thrown, Couture was able to block all of them until the sounding of the horn.

Round Three Scoring: 10-9 Couture

In between rounds, the appearance of the fighters in their corners was a stark contrast. Couture still seemed relatively fresh, while Barnett looked like the proverbial damaged goods. Barnett may have fought better as the fight went o­n, but the effects of the beating he took in the first round seemed to linger, and Coutures continuous right hands were doing nothing to help him.

For the beginning of the fourth round, Couture sensed that his opponent was almost finished, and moved in for another right hand that snapped Barnetts head back. Barnett dove in at Coutures legs, but like he had been doing for much of the fight, Couture blocked the takedown. Couture then tried a takedown of his own in the version of a slam, but Barnett managed to keep his feet; the effort Barnett exerted in doing so, though, seemed to sap strength from his already nearly empty reserve. Valiantly, Barnett fought o­n, but saw another try at a takedown and a clinch that was followed with knees blocked by Couture. At this point, with a nearly fresh opponent staring him down and stopping everything he threw at him, Barnett bravely made o­ne last stand, motioning for Couture to, Come o­n! and then recklessly charging forward while throwing punches. Couture, in a bit of gallantry of his own, did not give ground to Barnett, eating Barnetts desperate punches before responding with his own shots. Couture then clinched Barnett behind the head and began to dirty box him, feeding his adversary a steady stream of short uppercuts until a bloodied, battered, and exhausted Barnett slumped against the side of the cage. The referee interjected himself to stop the fight, and with no controversy to speak of, Couture had avenged the biggest loss of his career.

WINNER: Couture via TKO (Punches) in Round 4

  Topps Enters the Sports Board Game Market
Topps, the famous baseball card company is entering into the world of sports board games.  Here is a press release that was sent to me. (Hey, the website must be o­n the map now, to get official press releases!)

October 16, 2003 (SEATTLE) — The world’s hottest new game company moves up to the big leagues today. WizKids, LLC, a subsidiary of The Topps Company, has unveiled plans to market a collectable baseball game under a licensing agreement with Major League Baseball™ and the Major League Baseball Players Association.

MLB™ SportsClix™, the company’s first sports-themed entry into the collectable miniatures game (CMG) market, will hit store shelves during baseball’s 2004 spring training. It features real major leaguers sculpted as two-inch-high 3-D game pieces. MLB SportsClix gameplayers act as team managers, collecting and trading the miniature baseballers to face each other o­n a ballpark playmat.
“We think the combination of fun strategic game-play, and the excitement of collecting your favorite players, will appeal to fans of all ages,” said Scott Silverstein, executive vice president of The Topps Company.

MLB SportsClix simulates real game situations by using specially-designed dice together with actual statistics that are contained in each player-specific figurine. The Alex Rodriguez figure, for example, will be a more powerful player in the SportsClix world just as he is in real life. And Mark Prior will be an intimidating presence o­n the mound.

“In our game, anyone can decide starting lineups, where to play the fielders and what kinds of pitches to throw. It simulates what it’s like to make the important decisions that affect the outcome of a real big-league game,” said Jordan Weisman, founder and CEO of WizKids. “Anyone who enjoys baseball will have fun playing MLB SportsClix.

MLB SportsClix will be available at leading retailers nationwide in March 2004. It will be sold in Starter Sets and Booster Packs. Starter Sets will contain a full team of nine figures, a stadium playmat, dice, rules, and everything else o­ne player needs to field a team. The suggested retail price will be $19.99. Booster Packs allow collectors to add major leaguers to their teams. Two-figure Boosters will retail for $4.99, three-figure Boosters at $6.99.

Acquired by The Topps Company Inc. in July 2003, WizKids manufactures and distributes collectable miniatures games. The company invented the category, and its games are now played in more than 56 countries worldwide. To date, WizKids has sold more than 100 million miniature figures under the Mage Knight™, MechWarrior® and HeroClix™ game brands, making it o­ne of the fastest-growing game companies in the United States. For more information, visit <A href="http://www.wizkidsgames.com/">www.wizkidsgames.com</A>.

The Topps Company (<A href="http://www.topps.com/">www.topps.com</A>), founded in l938 as Topps Chewing Gum, is an international marketer of kids' entertainment products, principally candy, collectable trading cards, sticker album collections and miniature games. ©2003 WizKids LLC.

The advertising that appeared on the site the past week is history. At first, I thought it was a good idea to help defray the monthly server bill. However, I didn't realize that the advertising company was going to use tons of annoying pop-unders and the like. I apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced.

I guess the old addage of if it looks too good to be true it probably is applies here!

  Back in the Saddle Again....Litterally!
I just received wonderful news from Gary Stishan:

I am proud to announce that The Thoroughbred Racing Game is BACK in print.

I have secured the rights and control from the original game designer, Dr. Victor Hasselblad to bring back this fine horse racing game as it was created in the late 1970s. The game will start shipping 8/25/2003.

The game includes:

  • Box to store the game components with the original picture o­n the box.
  • 2 same color dice.
  • Rule book.
  • All-Time Great Horses Set
  • 50 horse cards printed o­n 100 pound card stock in the same design of the originals.
  • 9 cards per sheet.
  • A listing of the horses and jockeys (with ratings) included in the set.
  • 10 Famous race tracks from around the USA.
  • 5 of the race tracks include both the dirt and turf courses for a total of 15 courses.
  • Included is an second set because the race tracks are used to keep of the race.
  • Also included are a couple sheets of trace paper to track the race instead of using the actual race tracks.

The price of the game is $19.95 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.

Many horse sets were created for the game by Dr. Hasselblad. I hope to release these as time allows.

The first season set to be released is the 1983 season. This is the last set Dr. Hasselblad created for the game. It has 50 horse cards and sells for $6.00. The 1983 season set can be purchased with the game to save o­n shipping cost.

I also hope to also create new season sets for the game too. I will probably start with the 2002 season and go from there.

For those that have the original game and would like either the All-Time Greats or 1983 season sets the price is $6.00 plus $1.00 shipping and handling per set.

Extra Race Track sets (15 courses, 2 copies) at $4.00 plus $1.00 shipping and handling per set.

Please e-mail me at <A title=mailto:Stish007@netdotcom.com href="mailto:Stish007@netdotcom.com" Stish007@netdotcom.com</A> to place an order or to ask any questions.

Thank you,

Gary Stishan

  TVG Horse Racing Added
I have added Jeff Drought's new horse racing game to the download section. Here is an overview directly from Jeff:

This is two games in one. Whether you play with Apba horse cards you own or the ratings included with this game, their use is a little different than with Saddle Racing. Only the Ratings (Turf, Good, Slow, Muddy & Sloppy) are utilized. Initially, the game is sets up the same. But instead of 11-66
grids, the plus/minus ratings which were converted for setting up odds are used instead. These normalized ratings are then converted to what I call a default movement rating. Other modifications to the horse rating include the usual track conditions, jockey ratings and a new variative called Pre-Race Training.

Once the scoresheet is filled out, a race is carried out with the use of three charts. Gate Sequence, Mid-Furlong Sequence and the Stretch Sequence. It should be pretty straightforward, but to clarify, the Gate Sequence would be the first Furlong while the Stretch Sequence most often times will be the last. Everything in between is run from the Mid-Furlong Chart. I say most often times because there may be races when the Stretch Sequence is used twice.

The second game included is what I call the TVG version. If you watch the TVG Racing channel, you can run races either before or post race, using the odds. A chart converts the odds to the horse rating. No other modifications are used (not track, jockey or pre-race training). Everything is built into the odds. Jockey ratings are used during the race however. If you don't get the race channel, you can still use this version of the
game by printing out results found on the internet. Or if you have a daily racing form, you could use the morning odds.

Differences with this game and Apba nclude the fact that decimals are not used. Diagonal movement is allowed though within restrictions. Jockey ratings (0-4) are at times added to Default Movement (DM) ratings while at other times, used to determine challenges. Challenges if won, allow a trailing horse to pass "thru" rather than move around a horse ahead. The
space in front of the lead horse would have to be open. Inward moves as with straight moves cost 1 movement point while outward moves cost 2.

Included is a track which can be printed in one sheet or in nine sheets which you would then cut and mount. Finally, horse icons are included and if printed per instructions, will fit exactly the spaces on the track. Furlong distances are identical to Apba's (8 spaces per furlong).

That should be it. Enjoy either version and send/post any questions.

Thank you,
jeff Drought

  SOM Baseball Downloads Gone
The SOM Baseball download section has been removed. Apparently some of the files there were copyrighted by a website. Since, I wasn't told which files were in violation, I removed the entire directory.

Everything in me wants to start a rant here, but I'll refrain. My suggestion though is to download everything you might from this site right now, as it may not be around next time I have to pay the server bill.

  APBA Saddle Racing News

Gary Stishan passed along the following:

Just wanted to let all the Horse racing fans know that I've created another Yearbook for the APBA Saddle Racing game. It is called the Early 1990's Greats. Like all my other yearbooks the horse cards are compatible with the APBA Saddle Racing board game.

<DIV>The Yearbook's focus is o­n the 1990 thru 1994 racing seasons. As most of you know APBA stopped creating seasons in 1987. This Yearbook along with a companion yearbook (Late 1990's due out later this year) will help bridge the gap APBA left us.</DIV><DIV>
The Yearbook includes 112 horse cards, 29 jockeys rated for as many as 5 different seasons and 13 Feature Races ready to run. Each year between 1990 and 1994 has at least 20 horses carded ready to go. This Yearbook instead of having a Year-In-Review section has a list of all the horses in the set with some key races they raced in like the Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup with even the jockey who rode them.</DIV><DIV>
Some horses carded are:</DIV><DIV>Unbridled (1990 - 3 yr old),</DIV><DIV>Hansel (1991 - 3 yr old),</DIV><DIV>A.P.Indy (1992 - 3 yr old),</DIV><DIV>Praire Bayou (1993 - 3 yr old) and</DIV><DIV>Holy Bull (1994 - 3 yr old).</DIV><DIV>
The price is the same as for my other Yearbooks $9.95 plus shipping. If interested in this Yearbook or any other Yearbook I've created, e-mail me at <A title=mailto:Stish007@netdotcom.com href="mailto:Stish007@netdotcom.com">Stish007@netdotcom.com</A> for a Product Info Sheet and Order form.</DIV>
