  1890 Players League for Time Travel Baseball
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 1890 Players League for Time Travel Baseball.

The release of this set continues our tradition of creating leagues and seasons that are often times ignored in other games.

Our Bonus for the first 25 orders for this set are some new GAMBLE cards. Unlike the GAMBLE cards offered with the 1915 Federal League set, these are more traditional in nature like those that ship with the base game.

The link to the set is here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_58_110&products_id=3201

The Players League features some very interesting elements for a replay. The top 5 teams were separated by 10 games, which keeps pennant races interesting. The league also features one truly awful team in the Buffalo Bisons who went 36-96 and finished 46.5 games behind pennant winner Boston.

Mark Baldwin of Chicago won 33 games on the mound and had an amazing 53 complete games. He also struck out 206 batters. Pete Browning led the league with a .373 average and 40 doubles. Hardy Richardson of Boston drove home 146 batters. And Hugh Duffy scored an astounding 161 runs for Chicago.

Here is a bit more about the league:

The Players' National League of Professional Base Ball Clubs, popularly known as the Players' League (sometimes rendered as Players League), was a short-lived but star-studded professional American baseball league of the 19th century. It emerged from the Brotherhood of Professional Base-Ball Players, the sport's first players' union.

The Brotherhood included most of the best players of the National League. Brotherhood members, led by John Montgomery Ward, left the National League and formed the Players' League after failing to change the lopsided player-management relationship of the National League.

The PL lasted just the one season of 1890, and the Boston franchise won the championship. Although known to historians as the Players' League, newspapers often reported the standings with the shorthand titles of "League", "Association" and "Brotherhood". The PL was well-attended, at least in some cities, but was underfunded and its owners lacked the confidence to continue beyond the one season.

In 1968, a committee appointed by Major League Baseball Commissioner William Eckert ruled that the Players' League was a major league.

The Players League Triple Crown leaders were Hall-of-Famer Roger Connor with 14 home runs, Pete Browning with a .373 batting average, and Hardy Richardson with 146 RBI. For pitchers, Mark Baldwin had 34 wins, Silver King had a 2.69 ERA, and Mark Baldwin struck out 211 batters.

On June 21 King threw an unofficial eight-inning no-hitter.

Oddly, in its one season of operation, the Players League saw seven triple plays: the Giants on June 14, the Red Stockings on June 30, the Pirates on July 15, the Pirates again on July 30, the Burghers on August 15, Ward's Wonders on September 6, and the Bisons on September 29.

** This set will most likely begin shipping on Monday. Our RLB release and the Father's Day Sale has us waiting on another shipment of card stock. If it does arrive early enough tomorrow, we will start shipping sets out tomorrow afternoon. **

  Ultra Quick Football Canadian Style
Downey Games is pleased to announce the release of the Canadian Football League for Ultra Quick Football. At this time we have released two decade sets, the 2000's and the 2010's. The 2010 decade, of course contains the 2010 through 2012 seasons. If these turn out to be somewhat popular, we will rate the rest of the CFL seasons. If not, we at least tried.

The 2000's Decade E-Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_70&products_id=3065

The 2010's Decade E-Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_6_70&products_id=3064

The 2000's Printed Year Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_73&products_id=3062

The 2010's Printed Year Book is available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2_73&products_id=3063

All of our CFL historical season supplements contain season and normalized ratings. Utilizing the normalized ratings, you can accurately match-up teams from any era without bias.

  Four Season's from the 80s for Mean Gene Football
Downey Games is happy to announce the release of the 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1973 NFL for Mean Gene's Match-Up Football.

The E-Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_6_129

The Printed Year Books are available here: http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_2_127

Mean Gene's Football is a fast playing football game that factors in every player on the field.

The game features our all-new No Shuffle Fast Action Deck and Fast Results Deck which makes game play really quick.

And while the game plays great solitaire, it also has great head-to-head elements. With Mean Gene's Football, you can run right at a weak defender, or avoid the side of the field with a dominant player. Rushing plays behind an all-pro left tackle will gain more than a play behind a second stringer. Want to pick on a rookie corner? You can with Mean Gene's Match Up Football. This is a draft league gamer's dream!

Everything you see on the real field is represented in this game. And as I previously mentioned, the game plays quickly. A complete game with full stats in an hour is easily achieved.

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!

The base game includes a fictional Men's Tour and a fictional Women's Tour with complete schedules, prize money, a points system, and even tournament brackets. Everything needed to play is included in the base game.

If you want to add real players, you can purchase any of our season year books.

If your favorite player isn't rated (which isn't likely), we give you a method to put them in the game!

Step on the court today, it is all Aces with Player of the Game Tennis!

  Forums are still active
The forums are still active. The script showing activity on the main page is being worked on to eliminate some PHP errors showing on the server logs.

You will see the script up and down throughout the day as I work on the code. I hope to be complete by late this afternoon.

I am also trying to fix the new user script. Perhaps I will have both working and complete at the same time.
