Hoops includes the PACs, instructions, two diagrams, and one season.
Hoops is a card and dice possession-by-possession replay basketball game using actual professional player statistical data as its basis. You’ll find just about anything you see in an NBA game occur on your tabletop…clutch players making great plays in the final seconds, big men disrupting shots, lockdown defenders creating havoc on the defensive end, and great athletes generating points on the fastbreak.
This game is the product of nearly a dozen years of research and play testing. We originally designed the game for our own personal use, and despite sales, the primary purpose of the game remains the same – we love to play it!
We think that you will find the game provides an innovative approach to some of the proven and historically successful basketball replay game engines. The goal for this game was to create a relatively simple game engine, which on the other hand, accounts for the complexity of professional basketball. We think that the game may fit the style of many gamers; if you enjoy replaying actual schedules and generating accurate statistics, the basic version may be for you. For the gamers who wish to engage in coaching decisions and generate a more lifelike feel to the game while still producing believable statistics, the advanced options will allow you to implement press defenses, play safe, crash the boards, and many other coaching strategies. So whatever your style, we think Hoops will create hours of fun and a satisfying gaming experience.
