This game will not contribute to your overall score, but it is a test run for a new game. Tell me what you thinnk about it, whether it's too confusing, too difficult, too... whatever pops into your mind.

But first, let's take a look at the probables and the starting lineup for the game...

The festivities begin at 5PM... whether the game starts then or not... who knows.

Pregame Picks -- All Star Bingo

Imagine a 3 x 3 BINGO board in front of you. But it's empty! We've got to do something about that. I've got a list of ALL-STAR worthy picks for you to use to fill that card out for you. Choose 8 of the "Picks" below with their respective choices and fill out your board and aim for BINGOs.

Top-Left Top-Center Top-Right
Left Center Right
Bottom-Left Bottom-Center Bottom-Right


If you're not familiar with BINGO, you need 3 picks that line up in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

All "Picks" are designated with a letter, and most have choices designated with numbers in parenthesis.
If you want to say there will be "More runs in EVEN innings", select G-2.
If you want to say there will be "More hits by the AL", select K-1.
Note that the Center space isn't free but a specific question... surely getting BINGOs without that center piece is gonna be tough... so guess this one right...

Anywhoo, good luck.
