UBTG FEATURES THE BEST BASEBALL PLAYERS OF ALL TIME
Those of you who are familiar with replay games like Strat-o-matic and APBA Baseball and with Strat-o-matic baseball cards know that player card sets for these games mostly represent team rosters from particular seasons. In UBTG, we feature the best baseball players of all time. While Strat-o-matic baseball cards are based on seasonal stats, UBTG baseball cards are based on lifetime stats. You only need one Ted Williams card, and you can rest assured Williams will play like he played in real life.
Furthermore, Strat-o-matic baseball cards often lead to distortions of a player’s true talent (e.g., a Barry Bonds 2001 card will tend to exaggerate Bonds’ true power, while a Garrett Anderson card in his last year–when he was injured–will tend to misrepresent how well he played throughout his career). UBTG, on the other hand, touts the true talent of the best baseball players of all time. This is why UBTG has been called the “dream game of dream team simulation”!
UBTG has researched every player ever to have played in American major leagues (including Negro leagues, all-nations teams, and pre-1900 teams), and UBTG has rated and ranked these players with amazing accuracy. Each player card represents true talent. We have taken into account various era-specific, season-specific, and team-specific distortions, so you can rest assured each player can be accurately matched up with any other player, regardless of era. We are confident at the time of publication that UBTG features the best baseball players of all time, and that we have player cards that can be found in no other game on the market.
The OFFICIAL UBTG 2010-2012 PLAYER REGISTER features over 4,000 of baseball’s best, all rated and ranked according to the UBTG rating system.
Check out our lists below. We have listed players in alphabetical order and by position, first the ones in the game box, and then the ones in each of the player card expansion sets. Stay tuned for more lists of additional sets, to be available soon.
Other baseball board games boast realism. UBTG delivers.
- The game board alone is amazing and the game components are top quality.
- The pitcher fatigue and rotation system is unparalleled.
Many board games are fun. Others may be realistic. UBTG is both, with many more opportunities for strategic baseball decision-making.
Without a doubt, this is the best baseball table-top game I've ever played.
ULTIMATE BASEBALL THE GAME is to baseball board gaming what ADVANCED SQUAD LEADER is to wargaming.
