This is not a computer game which plays itself, or a child's game based on luck or trick mechanisms, or a complex game that bogs down in a sea of statistics. Basketball Strategy is an easily played board game with the outcome determined by skillful decisions of the participants -- not a set of random actions dictated by a throw of the dice.
If you don't care what basketball is about... this game is not for you. On the other hand, if you have visions of becoming a ballplayer, or a coach, or you just want to relive the glory days of your past or the games of an earlier day, this is a game you can't pass up.
Each twelve player team is patterned along professional lines with imposing centers, versatile forwards, and fancy ball-handling guards. You decide whether to play your center close in or bring him out to the high post to lure the opposition's big man away from the boards. You decide whether to doubleteam that hot superstar on the opposing side, or to play loose when in foul trouble. You make the decisions which will result in scoring opportunities ranging from lay-ups to turnovers. You decide how to best defense the opposition and concentrate on keeping the ball from their best shooters. You'll find all this and much more in Basketball Strategy: providing you with a lifetime of pleasure.
