Gearing up for the Tribe-O-Matic Contest

I am finalizing the details on the Tribe-O-Matic giveaway contest.  I can tell you this much: it is going to be FUN!  I will be giving away THREE (count 'em THREE!) Strat-O-Matic games as part of the contest.  I am waiting for the games to be given away to arrive in the mail.  Once I've got 'em, we'll be all set!  The folks I've been working with tell me that the prizes will ship this week.

I am putting together a fantasy tournament that will feature the MLB teams and stats from 2009 and possibly from another year.  The final details will be revealed as soon as I get the word.  The tournament will feature up to 64 contestants playing for the Championship!  The grand prize is either a computer version of Strat-O-Matic or the board game (winner's choice) plus a selection of cards to be named later.

Of course, you know how I roll, so everyone that gets knocked out of the tournament will be entered into a drawing for a board-game (see below) version!

Keep watching for more info!

For those not familiar with the Strat-O-Matic game, here is some background info:

Since 1961, Strat-O-Matic has created the most realistic simulation of statistically accurate baseball. Every player is rated by Strat-O-Matic’s unique rating system with statistical precision in each phase of the game – batting, pitching, defense and running.

Strat-O-Matic Baseball is played with the exact same rules as professional baseball. Each major leaguer has his own Strat-O-Matic Player Card based on his overall stats from the 2009 season. The gamer controls every aspect of each play from determining the starting line-up, stealing, hitting and running to replacing the starting pitcher. Instead of a bat and ball, the gamer uses dice, player cards and charts to play the game.

  1. Looks like a few of us have been contacted by the good folks at Strat-o-Matic! I've also agreed to do a contest, though I can say that my plans are quite a bit different than yours! It should be fun!

  2. I love games!

    I'd kill to find someone to play Axis and Allies with...

  3. cool. I have always wanted to play Strat-o-Matic. I will keep watching for how to enter.

  4. I've been holding off on buying a board game only because I rarely get to put enough time into OOTP. I'd gladly take one in a contest win though :)

  5. I've been playing Strat-O-Matic for years. Currently working on the '07, '71, and '90 seasons.
