Whether the action is on the gridiron, ice, court or diamond, each sport comes to life as the players and individual match-ups decide the outcome of every game. Every time a Quarterback throws a pinpoint pass, a Goalie stands on his head, a dominating Center throws down a power dunk or a pitcher shuts down an opposing lineup, the picture will be painted in front of you as though you were living the experience from the sideline, rinkside, courtside or on the dugout steps.
This picture comes into focus through an intuitive game design that translates true life athletic action into realistic play results on your tabletop. No matter the sport, games are won and lost because athletes make plays or fail admirably in the attempt. You will shake your head every time you call the perfect pass play but your receiver drops the ball or a defender tips the ball away at the last second! You will groan every time a beauty of a goal is stolen from you when a Goalie makes a big save giving his team a burst of momentum! You will smile when your athletic forward slices his way to the rim and dunks the ball over a Center the height of a redwood tree! You will breathe a sigh of relief when your center fielder races toward the gap and makes an outstanding sliding catch to take away an extra-base hit!
As these images and games come to life, feeding your imagination through each ordinary, big or spectacular play, you will truly . . .
FEEL THE PULSE OF THE GAME!
