The games that I'm currently playing (including Fantasy Baseball and Football on the Net) are listed below. Each section contains a summary of the status of that particular game as it currently stands.

Perfect Rotation Fantasy Baseball

Perfect Rotation is a free fantasy baseball game hosted by CNN/SI. Players are grouped into 10-team divisions and, prior to opening day, received a budget of $50M with which to purchase 14 players (5 pitchers, 8 position players, and 1 DH). All players are active at all times.
    Any team can buy any player they can afford and any number of teams can own the same player(s). Salaries for each player rise as more teams buy them and fall as teams sell them, so part of the game strategy is to "buy low, sell high" in order to increase one's franchise value and be able to afford a team full of superstars.
    Teams are limited to a season total of 75 buy/sell transactions. There is no trading between teams. Players earn "Small World Points" (SWP) for their actions during games and teams get these points while having those players on their rosters. Standings are based on a team's accumulated SWP totals.
    FINAL: I won my league rather comfortably and ended up about #1200 out of over 224,000 total players.

Full Count Fantasy Baseball

Full Count is a free fantasy baseball game hosted by Sandbox Entertainment . Players are grouped into 10-team leagues. At the beginning of the season, each team manager must select a desired order of preference (by position) for Draft Day. The draft is conducted automatically with the results being sent to each manager.
    Each team owns 25 players and must select his starters each day from that roster. Starters include 8 position players, 2 "utility" players, 6 starting pitchers, and 2 relief pitchers. Managers may augment his roster by claiming unaffiliated players from the Waiver Wire or by trading with other teams in their division.
    Starting players earn Fantasy Points (FPs) for their performances each day they are in the starting lineup. Benched players earn no points for that day. League standings are based upon accumulated FPs for the season.
    FINAL: I held on to nose out a hard-charging runner-up and win my division.

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football is a free fantasy football game hosted by Sandbox Entertainment and Yahoo!. Franchises are grouped into 10-team leagues. Teams consist of 20 players selected by draft from which 10 players constitute the team's starting lineup. Trades are allowed between teams and all non-roster players become available to be claimed off the waiver wire.
    Each week's starting lineups consist of QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 RB/WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DL, and 1 DB. The scoring system along with my current starting lineup and full roster is given below.

Going into Week #6 my record stands at 3-2 and I'm in 5th place in my division...

Republic of Rome

Our last game ended suddenly with a shocking "Disaster" result despite a +16 combat advantage resulting in the Republic falling due to having four Active Wars against it. Another game is getting started. This time we are using the "alternative history" rules where all three game decks are shuffled together instead of being separated into Early, Middle and Late Republic decks.

The new game is under way......*CRASH* Modern technology throws a crimp into Roman history. We were contemplating a sticky multiple-war situation in Year 4 when the game host's computer crashed and we were unable to resurrect enough of the game history to allow us to continue.

Oh, well...I guess that my Norskii Faction will have to look for another game to begin.

Advanced Civilization (computer version)

Unfortunately, the game has come to a crashing halt due to a problem with the host computer (this is not a happy trend :-( ). I was in good shape with Assyria in Turn 11 at the time. Perhaps, we can chalk it up to a comet impact (or a giant mutant lizard) wiping out all civilizations in that region? Or, are summer movies softening my brain?

History of the World (computer version)

I'm playing two six-player games and one three-player game using standard card pass rules in each game...

All games have recently concluded. I won one six-player game fairly comfortably and finished a mediocre 4th in another. The three-player game was a fierce battle to the finish and I wound up 2nd by just a few points.

Check out the History of the World on the Net (HOTWON) site to get into PBEM games of HotW! I've entered all of my current games through this service.

Update: The HOTWON site administrator may be stepping down. I hope somebody is found to replace him and continue on with what has been an excellent service for HOTW gamers.
