Cricket: The Game comes as hard and fast as a bouncer from a 6 foot tall Pace bowler!
We've created the perfect balance of skill, luck, and intensity!
Each team has 12 players, with each player being a unique character with stats that reflect their position in the team.
Some specialist Batters and Bowlers have additional attributes to enhance their skill/ability.
The Batting Confidence varies depending on the type of player, and adjusts during gameplay.
Bowling cards are used for Deliveries, with a range of delivery types depending on the bowling style. The card shows the optimal shot for the Batter to play against the bowl, which is revealed after the Batter chooses their attempted shot location.
Each Bowling style has advantages and disadvantages, that a skilled Batter will try to manipulate with their shot selection.
The field is separated into different Zones and Areas, that limit/allow fielder positioning. The Bowling team can set their field to create opportunities to limit runs, or get run-outs and catches.
We even have slips that can be placed for those missed shots that may have clipped an edge!
The Over Decks are shuffled, and six cards drawn for each Over, and played with each delivery.
Decks are different between the Bowling styles, to enhance the Over.
Cards can affect Players' outcome of rolls, offer possible wickets, boundaries, and many other exciting tweaks to the delivery.
The bowler will select a bowl from their availalbe options. The batter tries to anticipate the selected bowl, and is rewarded with better odds of hitting if guessed correct.
Each player rolls a dice to determine the outcome, which may be enhanced by special attributes or "Over Deck" cards.
You can play CTG with 1 to 4 players!
In multi-player games, the standard rulesets apply, and games play out as a classic team versus team.
In solo player mode, we have specific rules for the AI player, that provides enough challenge and chance of plays that it never gets boring!
