Cool.   How did it end in a tie for first exactly?

For the final game we had them play a full inning, starting with the 9th. That ended in a 0-0 tie, so we went to the 10th. That also ended in a 0-0 tie. So as opposed to going into the 11th, the gentlemen decided to split the victory.

That's terrible, next year's winner will now host Gen Con.  That sounds like a reasonable solution to an unfavorable result in an exhibition intended to increase popularity of the game.

Well I rewatched the Video, and I still think I should have got my home run at my first at bat, it was a Strike 6, but I had a +1 power so I rolled a 6+1=7 Hit, but becuase I Rolled a Natural 6, I should still have gotten my smash, and I comfirmed it with another 6 for a Home run. 

 

But it was alot of fun, and I am still proud to be a World Champ.

I am hopeing to Defend my title next Gen-Con.

 

Thanks for a great game guys I can't wait to get my Kickstarter!!!!

Here's the deal with that- Mike and Chris are wrong. You can not Crush off a tied S6 roll with a natural 6. That would be a foul (being tied strikes are fouls). Now, rodney can roll up to a 7, which you did and that is why there was the run phase. Rodney's currently the only batter who can make Contact on a Strike 6 (because of that modifier). Now, if the pitcher rolled a S5, then yes- you would've totally Crushed it and then also hit the HomeRun.

Hope that clears it up. I know the game was a lot to take in with learning the game and jumping right into the tourney. Next year we are making it a requirment to have to know the game to play. Still we had a blast and hope, ultimatly, you did as well. :)

I think he already said that SotM won't work in that format. sad
