EVERYDAY PLAYER BASEBALL
Staying true to the original Gil Hodges Pennant Fever, we've added elements that will make the game more realistic while maintaining the high fun factor. The game is also designed with the solitaire player in mind.
The game provides a sense of "drama" as players roll to see if that "Towering Fly" along the left field line will stay fair or hook foul, whether that "Grasscutter" up the middle sneaks through the infield, or what happens when the hitter "Connects!" with the fastball.
All hitters are rated for average and power, as well as their tendencies to strike out, draw walks, and make contact. Players are also rated for their base running ability, stolen base, fielding, and bunting skills. Pitchers are rated for their effectiveness and stamina, whether they are strike out or pitch-to-contact hurlers, as well as their frequency of issuing free passes.
The game now comes with 14 seasons: 1957, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1967, 191969, 1969 , 1970, 1971, 1972, 1975, 1986, 2014, 2016 and 2018.
NEW STADIUM CHARTS:
The 1970 season comes with the new Stadium Charts which can
replace the Long Fly charts. Each stadium reflects the ballpark's
tendencies to yield home runs, doubles, and triples.

EVERYDAY PLAYER FOOTBALL
NEW RELEASES: 1966 AFL
Based on the old Vince Lombardi Football game, many new facets have been added to more accurately represent each player's skills. Everyday Player Football is also perfect for the solitaire gamer.
One major flaw with the original game was that a quarterback's completion percentage never came into play. A QB who completed 60% of his passes was no different from a QB who connected just 40% of the time. We've changed that as each QB is now rated not only for their ability to complete passes, but also their tendencies to throw interceptions and their abilities to scramble and run.
Running backs now have separate ratings for their ball carrying and receiving abilities, and "Key" players will have more of an impact in all aspects of the game. Every player at every position has been rated. These ratings will have an impact on not only a team's overall offensive and defensive abilities, but will also come into play in many individual situations.
The game comes with the 1958, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970 and 1971 NFL seasons; four AFL seasons - 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969; 1969, and 1974 for the WFL.
EVERYDAY PLAYER HOCKEY
A rethinking of the old Rod Gilbert hockey game, Everyday Player-Hockey is now ready for purchase. The game comes with 6 NHL seasons: 1964-65, 1967-68, 1969-70, 1970-71, 1973-74, and 1982-83, and the 1972-73 WHA season. Each of these seasons is a snapshot of the growth of the NHL, from its original 6 franchises in ’64-’65, to 21 teams in ’82-’83.
The game can be played using a combination of Fast Action Cards and dice, or you may play a version that is exclusively dice-driven. All players are rated for their offensive and defensive abilities, as well as their tendency to draw penalties, and each team has specific Power Play and Penalty Killing units. Home ice advantage is built into the game, and each team’s overall strengths and weaknesses in multiple facets are also built into the action.
What this hockey game is: a fast-paced, fun to play game that captures many aspects of hockey and is realistic in portraying teams and players while staying true to the original.
What it is not: the most detailed hockey game available that literally takes into account every characteristic of the game and has ratings for each and all of those elements.
