Minden Playing Card Cricket - Cricket Board Game

Minden Cricket Board Game - 5th Edition

Minden Playing Card Cricket 5th Edition is an updated version of the classic cricket board game which has kept sports replay gamers entertained and enthralled for more than 30 years. The 5th Edition contains new rules such as detailed pitch conditions, weather, bowler stamina and exceptional abilities, all of which add to the already solid, statistically accurate game engine which has stood the test of time.

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, 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.
