I spent this past summer refreshing my memory about the cricket boardgames in my collection and MPCC has been one of the two big boys in my gaming (including an attempt at making it viable for T20 matches).
I had real fun in playing the 1988 Pakistan-West Indies series, but what stood out and front is the fact that I have already hit three seagulls out of the Chance Event chart, twice in the same innings!!
Just in case you're cornerned with their health status, I am happy to let you know they've been stunned but all three are fine... <VBG>
May this be recorded as a hitting record? <LOL>
It sound as though they have had their chips -- perhaps pinched one too many?
He's just stunned...maybe pining for the fields.
One of the most compelling contests in world cricket of that era was Pakistan against West Indies. Pakistan was the only team that could challenge the West Indies team.
The third and decisive test is ready to get underway. Pakistan won the first test and the Windies the second one.
Can anyone remeber the end names of the old Kensington Oval, in Bridgetown, Barbados, before being reconstructed?
I'm replaying the third 1988 test between Pakistan and West Indies, and Marshall and Ambrose have akready taken 4 wickets in the opening 11 overs of Pakistan 1st innings...
Thank you in advance for the help!
