  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.

You can order the e-book by clicking the direct link below:

  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. The second layer adds individual stats for goals and assists, without bogging down the game. 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.

You can order your copy at the following link:

  2007 NHL Year Book Pre-Order Special
Downey Games is proud to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders for the 2007 NHL season for BigBep Hockey. The pre-order special ends on Wednesday, May 9th at 11:59 PM. With our pre-order special, you will receive a die-cut 2007 NHL card set as well as our all-new Ultra Quick Hockey game with the 2007 NHL season.

Since all printing is in-house, we have experienced slight delays in the past as we've released NHL seasons. All orders will begin shipping on Thursday, May 10th in the order in which they are received.

For the 2007 card set, 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.

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. Almost 900 individual player cards that are die-cut and in full color!

The Ultra Quick Hockey bonus game includes the complete game rules, charts, and 30 die-cut team cards. The team cards include Offensive, Defensive, Home Ice advantage, Overtime, and Shoot Out Ratings. They also include every player to score a point in the past season.

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. The second layer adds individual stats for goals and assists, without bogging down the game. As with many of our other Ultra Quick games you can easily play out a team's full schedule in a single sitting.

  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.

You can order E-Books from the following link:
