  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 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 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. Until next Friday, March 5th, order APBA Pro Hockey for only $17! That's a $5 savings. So what are you waiting for, this is one power play you're sure to score on!

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! To receive the bundle price you must enter Games6 into the coupon code when ordering online.

2. Don't forget to sign up for the 2010 APBA Convention and Tournament! This past year we had 100 paid attendees! We'd like to at least match that or surpass in 2010. Sign up and join this fantastic weekend of APBA camaraderie. This weekend long APBA family reunion is centered around the APBA basic game baseball tournament. The agenda is very loose and non-restrictive. A location is merely established to allow a pilgrimage to APBA bliss for an entire weekend. This event has been a catalyst to wonderful friendships and new APBA contacts for many. Come meet other APBA enthusiasts like you and indulge in your passion!

The rosters for these franchises include some of their greatest players each carded for their best season with the club. The set is due to release within the next week or so - $50

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.

For more information on anything listed in this newsletter, please visit our website at or call us toll free at 1-800-334-2722. As always, thank you for being part of the APBA family!

Visit our website and check out our product release schedule for the next 18 months! ***Please note that this only lists card set releases and does not include software and game releases*** As you'll see we're continuing to crank out the products that you've asked for. We hope to release even more than what you'll see listed. Take a sneak preview of what's in store for your enjoyment!

  Downey Games 7th Anniversary Sale
I was going through some documents tonight, and I discovered that Downey Games will mark it's 7th full year in business this Friday. My first reaction was one of disbelief, it doesn't seem like it has been 7 years. And it really doesn't seem like 11 years for! (And that doesn't count the years I had a tabletop site as part of Operation Sports).

We started out with one boxing game, and now offer over 800 items in printed and E-Book format.

To commemorate the occasion, I thought I'd thank those of you that have supported Downey Games throughout the years by offering a sale. Many of you know, I only run 1 sale each year, so this is indeed a special occasion!

As a thank you to everyone, I'm offering a 20% discount for all orders over $20.00. To receive the discount simply type "birthday" (do not include the quote marks) in the coupon code box at check out and it will apply the discount. The sale is in effect from now until our birthday is over at 11:59 PM on Friday, November 6.

I'd like to sincerely thank everyone that has supported Downey Games the past 7 years.

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

Dive Shot Lacrosse is a quick-play Lacrosse game that allows you to quickly and accurately resolve the final score between two lacrosse teams. While, this is a quick-play game, it offers an amount of detail that you won't find in other quick-play games. With Dive Shot you not only get the final score, which is resolved in a quarter-by-quarter manner, but you also get individual goal scorers, assist men, and goal tenders that directly affect the scoring in each quarter. 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.
