Mike's Sports Simulations Website

Welcome To My Homepage

Introduction to Site

Like most of you, I have played a variety of sports simulations, both board game and on computer.  Over the last ten years, I returned to my board game roots because board games involve me in the season I am replaying in a way that computer games just don't. I spend the vast majority of my time with Replay Baseball, but I also dabble with Hockey Blast and Second Season Football. This Website will house my replay results and some other stuff of interest to like-minded folks and also some stuff of interest to no one at all. Welcome.

The picture to the right was taken at the 2014 Replay Retreat in Pittsburgh. I am on the left and my good friend Ringo is my opponent.

My Completed Replays and the Current Project

 
The following Replays are complete. They were all done using the Replay Baseball board game. For each one, there is a link to the Delphiforum string where I posted day-by-day game stories and a complete standings and stats report in PDF format, including league leader boards, team stats, and individual stats.

My Replay Baseball Encyclopedia

At the end of each season Replay, I publish an encyclopedia that includes all the records from my projects. There is a section of season-by-season recaps in the style of the old Neft and Cohen "Sports Encyclopedia: Baseball". There is a section of leaderboards, both single season records and "career" leaders. Lastly, the bulk of the book contains each player's season-by-season stats in the format of Total Baseball or the old MacMillan Encyclopedias. This whole thing is silly because the records only reflect the odd lot of seasons I have chosen to play, but I get a kick out of knowing that Mickey Mantle's next home run in one of my projects will be the 186th I have rolled for him.
