Date: Friday, August 26, 2011, 1:29 PMDoes anyone happen to have the instructions on how to rate teams for Pennant Race? I had the game back in 83-84, and I seem to remember there being instructions included. Or, has anyone come up with a good way of doing so to get at least fairly accurate?

I assume u have obtained a newer game, with different charts and game engine, than the sports illustrated "pennant race" [designed by david neft] I own covering the 1972 [strike-shortened] season. the original SI pennant race operates the same as the very popular all-time all-star baseball and superstar baseball, using the 3 famous, but crazy, SI dice. I think the 1972 season cards did not give high offense, especially since using the better pitchers for most of the load keeps offense down a bit. I would only use a below average pitcher in mop-up, although on weak teams there is a shortage of above-average pitchers.
from the internet I have the 1970 and 1971 season charts, too, but have never seen detail on how the latter-day pennant race operates. can u give some detail?
I just found a copy in great (shrink wrap) condition and it includes the 1982 season which was a good one for my Braves. I remember seeming to have a problem with a lot of really high scores but may have been doing something wrong. Anyone else have these problems? What were your solutions (home brew or revisions)?
I think the concept/game engine mechanics is awesome and would have loved to see other editions such as a basketball or football. I also think a league would be great fun as it would take very little time for owners to be involved. I know the PC games out there seem to make this one outdated, but I am excited to own this game again and look to log a lot of time playing.
