Click here for the PDF of the RallyBird Board Game score sheets: RB ScorePage.
There’s one page for the Visitor team (Red) and one for Home (Blue).
Note that unless most regular baseball scoresheets, these align the batters horizontally, the innings vertically. This I think works best with the way the RallyBird board game plays… Take a look!
If your inning happily runs through more than 8 batters, just cross out the Inning numbers in the rows below, and continue.
In each At Bat box, you can write the name of the At Bat tactic below the diamond. You can use the diamond to indicate where the runner advances. I’d trace the line from home plate to first base and then draw an open circle around first base. If that same runner moved to second later, I’d trace that path on the diamond and put a filled circle on 2nd. If the runner makes it home, fill in the diamond. If a batter knocks a runner in, draw a filled in circle in a corner. I don’t know if it’s plausible yet (as this is new), but completists could possibly write the Glove tiles in the field as suggested by the diamond in each box.
At the end of the half inning, on the right side, record the number of hits you earned, how many runners your team left on base after 3 outs (“LOB”), how many of Defense’s Glove tiles you knocked out of the inning (“GloveX”), and of course your Runs. So you can see there is some emphasis of the experience in the RallyBird BoardGame terms.
At the bottom of each page record your game totals. The point is both to give you a numerical picture of the game performance, and to engage you and help you think about the impact of your strategies and tactics.
Don’t forget to write your name on top, where you’re playing, and any other details that will make it fun for you to look back at this scoresheet of your epic struggle and reminisce! And perhaps gloat…
PS. It’s a blast to keep score at live baseball games.
