Minden Playing Card Cricket - Cricket Board Game

Minden Cricket Board Game - 5th Edition

Minden Playing Card Cricket - 5th Edition is a statistically accurate cricket board game which has kept sports replay gamers entertained and enthralled for more almost 40 years.

This compelling and fun cricket board game comes complete with hundreds of Advanced Player Cards based on current Test players from all major Test Playing nations, as well as Cards for players based on the famous 1981 Ashes.

The Minden Playing Card Cricket 5th Edition core game includes rules for Basic and Advanced versions of the game, charts, dice, playing pieces, score sheets, a playing board and dozens of statistically accurate player cards and ratings.

The game is played using a standard deck of playing cards (not supplied), and allows you to replay Test Matches using players who perform like their real life counterparts. All the rules and nuances of Test cricket are replicated, from new ball behaviour, the ability to get swing in the right conditions, form slumps, hat tricks, the ability to be “mankad”, and much more.
