Tabletop Version GAME CENTER Chart

RINKSIDE HOCKEY focuses on all three zones of hockey play:  Offensive Zone, Neutral Zone and Defensive Zone.  Each zone is equally important and the strategies you choose and the on-ice actions of the players will determine success or failure in each of the zones.  Will you play a high-pressure/high-intensity game, sending 2 or 3 Forecheckers into the zone, or will you drop back and allow the opposition to easily break out of the zone but face neutral zone pressure?  Will you place emphasis on hitting hard and taking the body, at the expense of more penalties being called, or will you lay off of the hitting making sure you don't have to kill off so many penalties?  All of these decisions are important in RINKSIDE HOCKEY!

RINKSIDE HOCKEY also features all of the action that takes place after the whistle.  Scrums will increase the intensity of the game.  Agitators will try and get under the skin of an opponent to draw a penalty or goad him into a fight.  And all of this will determine just how hot the action gets.  A Chippiness Meter keeps track of all of this and, as it fills up, a greater chance exists for a fight.  Momentum also plays an important role in RINKSIDE HOCKEY.  As teams hit, fight, score goals, kill off penalties and make great saves, Momentum is either gained or lost which becomes important throughout the game. 

RINKSIDE HOCKEY includes highly detailed Game Instructions.  Support is also available through the FTP Sports Games Delphi Forum and questions emailed to ftpsportsgames@gmail.com will be answered as quickly as possible.

RATINGS

In RINKSIDE HOCKEY each Skater has 32 different ratings and each Goalie has 28 different ratings.  This truly brings each player to life!  After playing the game, you will see that a trademark of RINKSIDE HOCKEY is how seamless each of these ratings work together with the game engine to provide fast and furious action on the ice.  Nearly all of the results come right off of the player cards themselves and there are minimal chart lookups.
