Dump the Ump


Description by boardgamegeek.com

The premise is simple: Two teams take turns pitching and batting in this fast-paced, head-to-head battle of wits for three intense innings!

To start, the batting team selects from one of five batters, each with different player abilities. Avid baseball fans will appreciate the fact that each batter mimics the talents of some of baseball's greatest legends.

Once a batter is placed in the batter's box, the real fun begins! The pitcher and batter take up their respective tokens and begin to take the next few seconds to formulate a game plan. The pitcher can choose to throw a "Ball" or "Strike" and the batter can choose to "Swing" or "Take a Pitch." When the batter "Swings" at a "Strike," the batter rolls the dice out of the "Ump Cup" to determine the result of the play. Make your selections wisely, as you don’t want to be too risky, too safe, or too predictable!

This game is easy to learn, fun to play, and hard to put down. It travels easily from the kitchen table to the local pub and everywhere in between.

Now go ahead, see if you can out smart your opponent in this poker-meets-baseball challenge fittingly dubbed “Baseball’s Fastest Board Game.”
