MN 0068 Baseball Highlights 2045

Designer: Mike Fitzgerald

Publisher: Eagle/Gryphon Games

Players: 1-4

Ages: 10+

Play Time: 45-60 min

In this episode, we discuss how Baseball Highlights: 2045 is not a baseball simulation, but instead a tight, mechanics oriented deckbuilder, which focuses on the ‘highlights’ of a game of a baseball game. You don’t need to like baseball to enjoy this game, and if you absolutely hate baseball, you could still really like this game.

Ryan gushes about the cyberpunky art where the robots are trash cans with a bat for a single arm and steam coming out the top. We talk about how the game has a specific flow to the game play that takes some time to get in to, but when you do, the game plays really well. The flow is different with 3 players and is slightly more challenging to slip into. Baseball Highlights also works great for tournament play.

We also talk about the various expansions including the Coach, Rally Cap, Magna Glove, Robot Hitters, and Cyborg Pitcher expansions.
