  • 1-hour game time. You’re on the clock.
  • Innings are matchplay. Win the inning, score a point. Get the most points, win the game.
  • Ties are broken with a dance off. Better pick a good song…
  • Anytime a player walks, that means it’s time for a NEW dice roll
  • The batter can steal first on pass balls, so catchers need to keep everything in front of them.
  • Flashy catches = 2 outs
  • There is no foul territory on infield popups. Everything is in play
  • No time outs, no breaks. The ball is always live and in play.
  • During a select inning, teams will run the bases backwards!
