NEW Platinum Series Baseball Card Game Makes You Part of “The Show” – The Game Play
The outcome of the game is determined by several key factors which truly separate PSB from other baseball-themed games. The game takes into account the following:
- Your players real statistical abilities
- Your managerial capability
- The attributes of the ballpark you’re playing in
- Weather conditions
- Strengths and weaknesses of the opposition
- Just as real baseball, a little luck
However, despite all these various factors and attributes, its Platinum Series Baseball’s player cards that are the heart of the game. They make the game fast-paced and easy to play while maintaining an incredible level of baseball authenticity and statistical accuracy. This balance of game-play and realism is achieved by PSB’s comprehensive player ratings, which are included on each player’s card.
PSB only takes between 15 and 20 minutes to set up and half that time for more experienced players. This includes:
- Selecting your team
- Making your starting lineup and batting order
- Determining the game day weather
Once you’re finished with the set up, you’re ready to play ball.
As mentioned earlier, each ballpark has its own unique attributes. This is just one more way PSB differentiates itself. Some of these ballpark characteristics include:
- Varying outfield fence distances and heights
- Different infield and outfield types
- Different foul territory sizes
- Unique effects on certain types of plays
What’s more, each ballpark is in a specific geographical region of the country with varying weather patterns which can also have an impact on a game of Platinum Series Baseball.
All of these characteristics and attributed are pre-calculated into the game-play allowing for a seamless interaction between one player and another. As would be expected, the offensive manager rolls the dice for the batters and the defensive manager rolls for the fielders when applicable.
