"It's a light bidding game. When thinking about it for a response here, I started to think 'how would I describe it'. Well, an image of Hollywood Blockbuster came to mind. But, it's really not that.

So, it's just 6 rounds (maybe it was 7).

You have a round of bidding for players.

Those players do two things:

Add to the strength of your team and/or
bring money into your team

Each round you you gain trophies based on the strength of your team and then earn income off your team for the following round.

You can only have up to 5 players on your team, so you are looking to 'hire' players that improve your team.

Each player 'changes' their 'strength each year (some getting better as they mature, some losing some of their strength as they age and I think there were a couple that were inconsistent). But, income stays the same.

One neat thing is that there are two injuries 'tiles' that come up. When those go up for bid, it's a fist in blind bid. All bids are spent ('on health care for the team') and the one that spends the least on their team gets an injured player for the year.

On initial play I'd rate it between a 7 and 8. But, I've found myself actively trying to get it to the table. I don't always do that with new games. Also, it does have some of the same feel as HB to me and I've got that rated a 9. So, it will probably be an 8 (maybe a 9).

What may stop it though, at the end of each round there is a 'selection' round for 'specialists' for your team. They aren't equally powerful and the way it works is a bit wonky. I've been meaning the research that and see if it's a translation problem."

Ran a bit late nd arrived at the store 1min to four. It closes at four, so you get one of those looks. You know what look I mean whistle

So at a glance I had to sift through the piles of games. This game caught my eye on the bottom shelf together with the one listed below.

€1,75 opened but unpunched.

Sometimes we like to have theme game nights. This wasn't one of those, but I think we had discussed Cwali sports games as a theme.

Still thinking of a theoretical "Not Hot Games" Room for bgg.con this fall, and going through the list of titles that have appeared on these lists for games to highlight. Had played this years ago and wanted to confirm that I had enjoyed it - and I had!

I am sure there are a 'few' sports games out there.

But, this one is a auction euro with the theme of you managing a basketball team.

Keeper!
Played

Cwali games never seem to amaze, but never fail to entertain either. After finding Sun, Sea & Sand on sale earlier in the year and really enjoying it, I couldn't resist tracking down Basketboss as well.

Happily found a trade that sent away Merchant of Venus (which looks cool, but doesn't get played) and am eager to get this one on my table instead.

---

Essentially, exactly what I expected it to be - and I'm happy with that. It's a pretty simple auction game with some interesting chrome and a theme that I love. Everyone at the table enjoyed the game, so I'd call that a big win.

This isn't a game that everyone will love, but I'm glad to own it.

One of the only basketball-themed games out there, interesting mechanics. Somewhat hard to find. First edition, English/German/Dutch/French, 2009.
