Right now (November, 2020) you can find the board game in stock here: amazon and eBay.
Thanks for asking.
I’ve also shipped copies of the Add-On Kit to amazon, where it will be available pretty soon. Stay tuned!
The RallyByrd Baseball Board Game
A Baseball Board Game: 1 Hour, Serious Leisurely Fun
The RallyBird Baseball Board Game is selling! At the moment it’s available on Amazon and on Ebay. I’ve ordered more from the USA manufacturer. People are finding it good to play when quarantined at home, and to give as gifts. Thanks to all of you!
I’m still supporting the Add On Kit: Big League Teams & Coach Rules. I’ll be selling these via other merchants in coming months.
Due to the tough times, and my thirst for the good of normality, I’m so pleased that MLB is offering any season at all right now. It’s a strange season for sure, short, with empty stadiums and artificial crowd noise. How do you feel about it?
I’m grateful and, seeing how people are suffering, not prepared to be negative about its compromises. How will it fit in with the tradition of assessment? When the season is over, I’ll add its suspect, asterisk-worthy 2020 season data to RallyBird’s Add On Kit.
To make the 2020 season possible, MLB has applied some special rules. How might this impact the Add On Kit‘s big league team approach? Most of the MLB changes don’t really fit into RallyBird Board Game’s scale. However, a couple of the rules easily do.
This includes 1) no spitting on the board game; 2) no high fives, and most importantly 3) 2020 season teams must begin extra innings with a runner on second base.
I was quite curious to see how I’d feel about the extra innings treatment in MLB this year, and I decide that given the situation, I like it. I recommend it for experimentation for RallyBird Baseball Board Game players, not just for COVID but also when you are pressed for time. I will try it, if my opponent agrees.
I’m not ready in general to give up the tradition of the pre-COVID, standard extra inning rules for normal times. But I like it as an option when we need it. If MLB some day adopts it as a regular rule to promote the long term interest of the sport, I’ll roll with it. Still, baseball’s tradition is part of the panorama of the game.
Finally, please note that the RallyBird Baseball Board Game is also going by the spelling RallyByrd Baseball. It’s the same game.
Peace and health to all! Play Ball! On your table!
