Strategy Forum/Newbie Advice Thread

PostThu Jan 10, 2013 10:25 pm

One of the forums on the message boards hosted by Sporting News was for the discussion of Strategy. Recently the link to the SN forums found on the top of the Board Index page disappeared. When it was available I doubt many used it. So I'm bringing some of my favorite threads here from not only the Strategy forum but also from the archived 20XX forum. As this thread drifts down the page I'll bump it occasionally with new posts from the old days. Some of the information and players mentioned in the posts may be dated but, hey, aren't we all.


marcus wilby/luckyman/MARCPELLETIER brought the Newbie Advice Thread from the pre-SN message boards. If your a new player read it. Then read it again. Vets, you'll probably earn a couple of extra W's per season if you give it another gander as well.



I started a topic called Institutional Memory in which I brought together old threads that I thought would benefit managers. Here are a couple to start with and since links no longer work on the archived SN boards I'll use the rest of the posts in that thread as bumps.

Thanks for the great summary of links!

Here are the archives themselves, in total:

They must have not realized that they were deleting the link to this when they deleted some other posts.

Always had looked foward to J-Pav's TSF. Reading J-Pav's (and others) Newbie posts taught me quite a bit considering I had never played a Strat game in my life. Because of these guys, I became hooked on the game. Without their insight, I'd have probably played a couple of games before losing interest.

We could use more posts (I'm guilty as well) like we had in the "old days" sharing strategies.

Thanks guys. Great idea. We need to get "strat" to set up a "strategy" thread like they had on the TSN site!

I'll email them about this too.
