The flow of the game with new simple Fast Action Cards on this pdf. We suggest you print all 20 pages TWICE and cut and mix them all so you will have plenty of cards to play at least one game without reshuffling.
1. Read top line of first card for 2-12 number to see if action is on the pitcher or batter card.
2. On the 2nd card, read the second number (Random Number 11-88) to see what happens on that card. If noone is one base, change any BK, WP or CD on line 2 to an OUT. On a K, W, HBP or 1B on the pitchers card the result is settled and move back to #1 for the next batter.
3. You only use the 3rd number f the result is an OUT, to see where the ball is hit, and if there is a hit on the batter's card just to see if there is a chance of an error (E?). On an out one of these can happen:
G - DP - means a double play if a man on 1st base, with any runner on 2nd or 3rd advancing OR the defense chooses to hold all unforced runners and just throw the runner out at first. If "except OBR" it means an OBR A batter beats the throw so only runner going from 1st to 2nd it out.
Gx - lead runner who is forced out, and unforced runners hold.
Ga - batter out at first but runners advance.
E? - check 4th number on next card for an error, and if no error batter is out and runners advance. (if this occurs after a single on the batters card, then check that fielder for an error).
4. The Error Reading on the 4th card is only used if there is a possible error (e?) on line 3 after an out or hit on a batter's card. If the fielder's E number is in the range on this 4th line then everyone is safe in an out or gets an extra base on a hit. Flip for another 11-88 and if the number is 61-88 give batter and runners one additional base for a throwing error.
BD or CD exception instead of 2-12 on top line. Ignore these if noone on base. If at least one runner is on base, BD means to use the clutch batting at the bottom of the batter card use tto determine if it is a base clearing double (BD-2B), home run, or just a foul ball. If you get a CD with a position, then look up the fielders CD (clutch defense) 1-5 and use the chart at the bottom of this blog for result.
