A Giant Strat-O-Matic Contest

My first contest! The Strat-O-Matic game company has sent me three copies of their baseball game. Two of the copies are the full computer version complete with the 2009 rosters and Card Image (which allows the player to see the players' card for that season). The third copy is the board game version with the 2009 cards.

I am going to give away one game per week for the next three weeks. All you need to do is to fill in the form below. Make sure you indicate whether you prefer the computer version or the board game version. The first two winners will get his/her preferred version and the third winner will get whatever version is left. Each week a random entrant will receive one of the games. Contest rules are here.

Here is the release from the Strat-O-Matic company:

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.

I have played tabletop and computer baseball games for about as long as I can remember. I've played several games but Strat-O-Matic is my favorite by far. You'll have fun with the game. In the coming days I'll be posting some articles about the games and things you can get to enhance your enjoyment of it. Good luck!

Canadians can enter. I didn't notice that in the rules. I'll change it. :)
