As Played Score sheets

As played score sheets are geared toward the “cards and dice” enthusiast. Each link goes to a .zip file that contains .pdf formatted score sheets for each team. These score sheets are prefilled with the lineups for each game played by that team. In addition, there is one file that contains all of the sheets for the league. If a year does not have a link, then the score sheets have not been uploaded

Computer Manager Files

Excel files that contain computer manager settings submitted by Mike Farbo a gamer from the community. Microsoft Word and Excel are required to open the files. These can be especially helpful for the teams that are “autoplayed” in a project.
