NPNG+ can be played in at least two ways. (1) It is a cards and dice game. If you wish to play NPNG+ as a standard cards and dice game that you may already be used to, the sections you'll need to download game parts from are below beginning in the NPNG+ Game Parts section down thru the section labeled Lineup Sheets. Everything you need to play NPNG+ in the cards and dice format are contained in those sections. (2) For those of you that would rather not print out all the boards, charts and player cards, The Board Reader provides a great alternative. Everything you need to play NPNG+ is contained in The Board Reader. All the game boards and charts, all the player cards and even the "dice" are included in The Board Readers. There is a Board Reader for each season that is available in NPNG+ or now you have the option to "mix and match" all NPNG+ available teams from ANY season into one Board Reader to play your own fantasy season. Just go to the bottom of this web page and download The Board Reader for you favorite season or, just above The Board Reader section you'll see a section about a Cross-Season Board Reader. Download it and Board Readers from seasons that contain teams of interest to you and you'll be able to pick teams from those seasons that you wish to pit against each other.
NPNG+ Game Parts
The Main Game Boards are for Master, Intermediate and Basic NPNG+.
MASTER INTERMEDIATE BASIC
NOTE: Because of file size, this season (both leagues) also needed to be split in nearly half:
Pitcher Combined Ratings and Stamina Ratings
Optional Fielding Distribution / Unusual Play Distribution Chart
NEW! MANAGER-CALLED BASE STEALING (for Cards & Dice)
NPNG+ Base Index Report (w/ Manager-Called Instructions)
Base Stealing Ratings Reports
The Cross-Season Board Reader (an Excel spreadsheet)
This Board Reader allows you to pick and choose teams from Board Readers from any seasons in The Board Reader section below and pull them into one. Now you can quickly and easily create your own leagues made up of any teams you choose!
The Board Reader (Excel spreadsheets)
Here are some guidelines to help you use these test versions:
The Board Reader v4.1e is the version that will contain all current enhancements to NPNG+, update the Game Boards,
fix any known problems, keep products in sync, adds Low-K rating and Optional Manager Called Base Stealing.
The Board Reader v4.1g is an upgrade for The Board Reader (TBR) "Guides" tab.
(Special thanks to Ron Bernier for adding the NPNG+ enhancements to The Board Reader!)
With The Board Reader 5.0 version, you not only need The Board Reader file but also a second file to accumulate your season stats in. You'll need one of these Excel worksheets for EACH SEASON you are replaying. You can place The Board Reader file in any folder on your computer you wish and you can also place the stat accumulation file in any folder you wish. However, keep track of where you place them. A fresh blank stat accumulation worksheet can be downloaded as needed. It is located just below this paragraph. It's name is xxxx-Replay Stats. After you copy it to your chosen location, you should rename it 2019-Replay Stats (or whatever the season).
