For all you baseball fans out there ( @PinballProfile ) this is for you!
Each game has a single, double, triple, and home run score threshold for an individual ball and out, double play, or triple play (see “outs”) thresholds for each ball. All games are 3 ball games. There are 9 innings, each game title is an inning. You play a game title until you get three outs then move to the next inning. Each game will have a target score multiplier equal to the game number on that inning, so the second game on a title you play all target scores are doubled, the third they are tripled, etc.
Bases, outs, and multiplier get reset each inning. Winner is the person with the most runs after 9 innings, or you cut to a top 16 for a multi day tournament for ifpa points and run each round with two innings each round and top 2 in runs scored from each group move on each round, etc
There will be a “out” score threshold as well as a “double play” and “triple play” threshold. The double play can only happen if there is one person on base, and the triple play if there are 2 or more on base. Otherwise the double play and triple play threshold is treated as a normal out.
Example score threshold (points scored on the last ball)
Stern Star Trek
Triple play: 0-4.9mil
Double play: 5-9.9 mil
Out: 10-14.9 mil
Single: 15-24.9 mil
Triple: 50-79.9 mil
Home run: 80+ mil
What y’all think? Would you play? What if it was a multi - day event? The logistics of tracking your delta on each ball is a little tough but could be solved with some software to help you, or you could make some rounding rules so you’re not counting all the digits, or make a home run score and use percentages like pin-bowling.
