This may be the third installment in an environment of incredibly fun sports games used dice. In the first installment I taught you how exactly to play the college version of Dice Football. Then in the next you learned the Pro Football dice game. Now it really is Dice Baseball, which is the initial dice game that I ever invented. In the same way in my football games you will need two dice, notebook paper and a pen or pencil to play dice baseball.
You will recall that in the college football game you got your box score set up to help you begin the game and simply take turns for four quarters. In the baseball game you will need to create a box score sheet that has nine boxes split in two. These two halves represent the house team and the visitors. Understand that in baseball the home team always bats last and should be on the bottom of both box halves.
As in real baseball each team rolls for nine innings. The exception of course may be the home team. If the home team is winning after the visitor has finished his 1 / 2 of the ninth, then you don’t have for the house boys to roll the ninth. Just like in real baseball the game is over and the dice can hit the showers.
Batting is pretty simple. Each team reaches start their half of an inning by rolling the dice once. If the two die total an even number they can roll again. That’s because even dice totals equal one single. An even dice total will undoubtedly be one of many following combinations; 1+3=4, 1+5=6, 2+4=6, 2+6=8, 3+5=8, 4+6=10. If Bit Badges yields an even number then there’s been another hit. Now in baseball terms this means that there are, two men on base. The rolling player now gets a third roll. As you can plainly see where that is going, another even number means that the bases are loaded. A fourth consecutive even dice result provides home the first run and each consecutive roll will continue to bring home runners until the roller finally rolls an odd dice total.
Any odd dice total represents the finish of an inning. Thus, in case a player rolls an odd number on his first roll, then that inning has ended. The odd dice totals are the following; 1+2=3, 1+4=5, 1+6=7, 2+3=5, 2+5=7, 3+4=7, 3+6=9, 4+5=9, 5+6=11. An extremely cool thing to do during this game is to see when you can get a no-hit game. You can certainly do this by simply putting a dot in the innings a player rolls an odd number. You can begin this on their initial first inning roll. Each consecutive inning thereafter that the ball player continues to perform a first odd roll continues the no-hitter up until the player finally rolls an even number. If they neglect to roll a minumum of one even number in nine innings that means you pitched a no-hitter. Time to call Cooperstown!
So where are the homeruns? I bet you are glad that I asked. Any time a player rolls a double-dice roll, he’s got hit a Homerun! That is all that it takes; doubles aka, two of a sort. Better yet, if there are any men on base they score with the homerun. Yes, with the bases loaded a homerun is a grand slam.
This is an example of how the baseball game could be played. Why don’t we say the visitors roll a 2+3 on his initial first inning roll. The visitors inning is known as over and with no hits. The home team rolls a 4+6 (10) on the first roll. That represents a base hit or one man on base. The house player then rolls a 3+5 (8) thus obtaining a second man on base. He then rolls a 1+4 (5). The inning is over. End result of the initial inning is 0 to 0.
Visitors starts his second inning with a set of threes (3+3). Boom, he hit a homerun. Then rolls a 2+5 (7), this means the inning is over. The visitor has scored a run within their half of the second and leads the overall game, 1 to 0. The home team starts with a 2+4 (6) single. Then on the next roll the home player rolls a pair of fours (4+4). The house player has hit a two run homerun since there is a guy already on base. Another roll is really a 3+4 (7) out and that ends the next inning with the home team ahead, 2-1.
Now for all of those other game neither team scores again until the ninth inning once the visitor strings together six consecutive even numbers before rolling the inevitable odd number. Which means the visitor scored three runs and today leads the game, 4-2. Then your home team follows with three consecutive rolls of doubles (homeruns); which means they won the overall game, 5-4. What a comeback!
