Hockey season means "Game ON" for tabletop hockey fans, and we're ready to drop the puck with the new 2016-17 Pro Season cards for HOCKEY BLAST Pro Hockey Game, available October 7th.
The 2016-17 Pro Season cards let you re-create last year's exciting pro campaign on your tabletop. Will Nashville be able to duplicate its improbable run to the championship series in YOUR version of the pro season? Perhaps they'll even topple Pittsburgh in the cup series instead of falling just short! Or, maybe you'll have an entirely different championship pairing: Washington, Chicago and Columbus joined the Pens in posting 50-win seasons, and with a couple breaks one of these clubs—or any of a number of other contenders—might well have the chance to hoist the cup in your season! With HB's quick game time, you can race through your post-season at lightning speed and experience the tension and excitement of playoff hockey for yourself!
The 2016-17 Pro Season featured an ample supply of great individual performances, which you can bring to life on your game table with HOCKEY BLAST! Pittsburgh's Crosby will likely lead your league in goals scored, with Tampa Bay's Kucherov and Toronto's Matthews not far behind. Edmonton's McDavid and Washington's Backstrom will pile up the assists. The top defenders make it tough to get those points, though—defensemen like San Jose's Burns, Carolina's Slavin and Los Angeles' Doughty will earn all-star accolades from you for their goal-depriving game action, and goalies like the Caps' Holtby and the Jackets' Bobrovsky will be just as tough to score against in HOCKEY BLAST as they are in real-life. In fact, every player on every team—not just the stars—will re-create his actual hockey skills in this realistic tabletop recreation of pro hockey.
With the 2016-17 Pro Season cards for HOCKEY BLAST, you can re-create your favorite team's season, from opening night all the way to the playoffs (if you can get them there!). You can experience the highs and lows of the real-life pro season, the ups, the downs, and everything in between! Many fans complete full-season play-throughs in a matter of a few months. Or, conduct your OWN custom-designed tabletop hockey project—anything from a full-blown tournament to one-off "Game of the Week" match-ups—whatever time availability you have for your hobby, HOCKEY BLAST can fill it with exciting, realistic hockey action!
The 2016-17 Pro Season cards for HOCKEY BLAST give you complete say-so over all 30 pro teams, over 800 players individually rated. Plus you get "traded player" cards to complete rosters for the "playoff push," and an Instant Results chart that generates game winners with a single dice roll, perfect for quick-playing the rest of the league schedule to create context for a single-team season replay. The printed card set comes micro-perfed for quick separation so you can get right to the game, and sells for $39 postage-paid. The PDF edition is offered for $21 and comes in two versions, standard-size or big-print, each delivered to your e-mail in-box. All versions are presented in team colors. Available October 7th!
