Challenge Games Launches Baseball Boss
Jul 24 2008 1:55PM
Challenge Online Games, Inc. (Challenge Games) has announced the release of Baseball Boss, the first free online game to bring together the nostalgia of baseball card collecting with the excitement of fantasy sports.
The browser-based game allows virtual baseball cards to be used to create fantasy teams for head-to-head play against other teams, including historical ones. The new multi-player online game holds a licensing agreement with MLB Advanced Media LP (MLBAM), the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, and the game's virtual baseball cards include player statistics and photos.
The game allows gamers to collect and trade virtual baseball cards and assemble them into fantasy teams that can then be used to challenge other player-created or historical teams to games. Winners earn points, which can be redeemed for additional packs of player cards.
Baseball Boss is asynchronous in nature, meaning it can be played whenever a user wants. Players can challenge other teams and results can be accessed at the players' convenience.
Gamers may also create their own private leagues to play with their friends, join one of many public ones, or play in a variety of fee-based premium leagues, which have additional features. Teams can be altered by trading cards with other players, purchasing cards from other players in online auctions using points earned, and by purchasing new card packs as they are released.
Baseball Boss can be played for free at www.baseballboss.com.
