I think you left off the 1993 Giants. That team was as good as any I can remember and is partially responsible for the recreation of three divisions in each league. They got to be on that list!

’75 Red Sox! Great memories!

You are right, the 1993 Giants and the 1993 Braves were both excellent teams. What a pennant race! The issue with the Giants is they didn’t make the playoffs and that is a minimum qualification criteria. Having said that, that 1993 Giants team could play with any team.

Dynasty cards are just too ‘messy’ looking. The cards from the 1986 season are when PTP was at it’s best and would probably still being going strong if they left the game alone. Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke! That’s why PTP lost gamers and went belly up.

The main reason PTP “went belly up” is that PTP players switched to DYNASTY League Baseball which is more realistic and easier to play. The color coded situation results, having the play results completely written out on the player card and baserunning advancement right on each player cards make playing DYNASTY much easier than PTP.

There are no charts like in the old game? I could look at the old PTP cards and figure out what result the three dice gave me, now I have no idea.

Reading the play results works the same way in DYNASTY as in PTP. Have you read the Official Rulebook?

Yes, there are color game charts and color ball park charts. Sounds like you have never played DYNASTY League Baseball.

I’ve played PTP and have seen the DLB cards and stuff at the website. Your post said that the results were read right off the player cards. If so then you wouldn’t need charts.

About 75% of the play results in DYNASTY League Baseball come right from the player card the rest refer you to an outside game chart just like PTP – it is the same game engine and design – just improved.

I’d probably try the game in a heartbeat if you still made the ballpark walls. That’s one thing that really set PTP apart. Those walls really made you feel like you were playing your game your game at that particular teams home field. I love a game that gives realistic stats and has playability, (that’s a must!) but I’m also into atmosphere. PTP still has ‘atmosphere’, and pretty good stats and playability as well.

Never say never, but those ball park walls belong to a different era in the popularity of Baseball board games. There just isn’t the retail distribution or demand for Baseball board games in 2014 as there was in 1985. As it is, the deep drive charts DO have a full color photo of the ball park with the HR # on the ball park photo much like the old cartoon style PTP walls, but instead of the abstract HR # the DYNASTY League Baseball walls have the actual distance in feet to the various parts of the park. It you really want the “atmosphere” then you should try the new Online version which has truly stunning wide angle high resolution ball park images that you play in that add far more atmosphere than the old PTP walls.
You can try it for free at DYNASTYLeagueBaseball.com and you will have access to every season produced.

Speaking of ball park walls…Did PTP ever produce walls for the old ball parks? I have a sheet of paper that has ball parks, (like Forbes Field for example) and all the info about them, just like in the old PTP instructions. There were minus results given in the old 1987 instructions, and some info about how that would be used for the new ‘old ball park’ walls that would be produced shortly. BTW, the only way I believe you can created ‘atmosphere’ is by playing a baseball board game and really getting involved with dice rolling, charts, player cards, and manual stat keeping. Yes, I’m old school. LOL!! I had DLBs computer sim years ago, but didn’t like it very much. How has it improved?

The old ball parks for PTP just had the HR #’s on a piece of paper. The new DYNASTY League Ball Park charts have the ball park color photo for current and past ball parks. No comparison between the old discontinued Windows version and new Online version. It is free to try what are you waiting for? :)

Atmosphere. I remember thinking that computer sports sims would be the greatest thing since sliced bread, and they were for a few years. I couldn’t wait to get back to the board games. Closest thing to real sports in my opinion. There is just so much lost by not using player cards and rolling the dice. Even manual input of dice rolls and card images can’t top it. Since your the guy who invented PTP Mike, I’m sure you miss playing board baseball games yourself.
