2-4 Players

1 Deck of cards

4 game pieces

5 cups

1 Ball/ Strike Counter

A player deals out the cards evenly. Whichever player or team has the Ace of Spades “bats” first and is considered the Away team on the scoreboard. The other player or team “pitches” first and is considered the Home team on the scoreboard.

Each player puts down their top card simultaneously. The cards that are shown determine what kind of pitch you throw and what kind of hit you make.

  • Cards 2-10 are balls and strikes

· If you draw a card 2-5 (A), then you must throw a ball into the cup on the pitching side underhand. (B)

· If you draw a card 6-10 (C), then you must throw a ball into the cup on the pitching side overhand. (D)

· If you make the cup (E), it counts as a strike for the opposing team. (F)

· If you miss the cup, it counts as a ball for the opposing team.

· Cards J, Q, K, & A are automatic outs (G) unless a higher face card is shown by the hitting team. (H)

· Balls and strikes do not reset unless 4 balls or 3 strikes are issued.

· If you throw 4 balls, then a runner on the opposing team goes on base and the balls and strikes reset.

· Any win in an event of a war will result in a side retired.

· Cards 2-10 are balls and strikes

· If you draw a lower card than the pitching team, it counts as a strike.

· If you draw a higher card than the pitching team (I), it counts as a ball. (J)

· Cards J, Q, K & A are singles, doubles, triples and homeruns.

· If you draw any of these face cards and win, you have to throw a ball into the corresponding cup.

· Ex: If you win a draw with a Q (K), then you throw a ball into the second cup for a double. (L)

· If you make it into the cup, it counts as a hit. (M)

· If you miss it, it is a foul ball and a strike is issued.

· If you make it into the wrong cup, it counts as an out.

· Runners do not advance unless they need to.

· Ex: If a runner is @ second base and you hit a single, then the runner @ second base stays.

· Any win in an event of a war will result in a homerun.

  • Whether you are pitching or hitting, you must take a step backwards before you throw a ball into a cup.
  • If a game lasts up to the 7th inning, the cards are reshuffled and evenly redistributed (7th inning stretch)
  • The game ends when a player or team loses all of their cards or 9 innings are played. The player or team with the highest score wins the game.
