First Encounter of the FAC Kind   Announcements

I like the idea of eliminating the white die result for pop-up outs given that you have so many fast action cards to spread them out on. As you/we use them over time there may come even more realizations and ideas for using them. I look forward to receiving mine and giving them a go. 

Thanks again Greg!

p.s. What exactly is the D36 result used for?

p.s. II   No way to incorporate the 54 chart results into the FAC deck??

But I get an arthritic thumb from FACS. Rather spread the pain across the whole arm. Fallen dice belong to the cat, grab another. <g>

p.s. What exactly is the D36 result used for? D36 is the initial roll of two D6's.

p.s. II   No way to incorporate the 54 chart results into the FAC deck?? Seems like it would a lot to add to the FACs considering that some of the cards are pretty full now. Examples: D20, Wildest Chart, Runner on First, Dice rolls 15-17. Or D20, Wildest Chart, First & Second, Dice rolls 18-20. Also the D20 Wildest Chart with the Bases Full is substantial. There are several other examples.

Got it. Thanks!

Thinking out loud, for now I think I will let the gamer just yellow highlight the popout they want for each of the 10 popouts.  Could do the same for the lineouts, and for the generic GO's too.  It does take away a bit of the randomness if it's typed right in there.  But if the game player wants to adjust them a little, why not.

The 54 Chart results would have to go on the flip side of the FAC, and have all the Wild and Wilder situations.  There is no room for the Wildest with Men on Base, but they are rarely referred to.  See attached.

 I like it Greg. I am all about using a fast action card deck instead of referring to charts. :-) Curt 

It will be a bit of an undertaking.  I don't know if everyone would want this type of card, double sided like that.  I mean, you're referring to the 54 chart once a game for both teams, assuming one of the 2 times it comes up it's with men on base and you're checking for a Wild Pitch 90% of the time by just referring to the D20.  It's like, man on 1st, 54-7 ... your brain immediately says check pitcher WP rating.  No need to go to a FAC in that situation.

 I would have to agree with you on that so maybe just see where this goes. 

Well, I couldn't resist.  Here's the FACs for the 54 Chart ... but not men on base wildest.  You still have to go to the main charts for those.

There's only 20 of them, and they would be repeated 9 times if I put them on the back of the current FAC set of 180 cards.

Any thoughts.
