We're doubling the fun with the All-Time Franchise Great Hockey Teams, Series TWO for HOCKEY BLAST Pro Hockey Game, adding twelve NEW franchises to the collection! NOW AVAILABLE!
With this second set of all-timers, you'll be able to expand your "rink of dreams" to include the greatest players ever to wear the sweaters of the Atlanta/Calgary, Hartford/Carolina, Los Angeles, Minnesota/Dallas, New Jersey, Ottawa, Quebec/Colorado, San Jose, Tampa Bay, Vancouver, Washington and Winnipeg/Phoenix franchises!
Each club is represented by its historically best and most colorful players, 24 players for each team, and will be competitive with the "originals" in every way. With these cards, Calgary and Edmonton can extend their rivalry to the "all-time" arena, as can the Habs and Nords, and many others!
In order to make these newcomers truly representative of their greatest players, we've re-located a couple players from the original twelve ATFG teams. For example, "Saint Patrick" moves from the All-Time Montreal goalie rotation to become the top goalie for the Quebec/Colorado franchise. The new card set includes replacement players for your original set (Montreal gets a new legendary defender), so all teams will be even-strength, with no duplicates.
Just think of all the fun you can have, watching these legendary players come to life on your card stock hockey rink! Set up your own "Cup of Legends" tournament, matching up clubs in semi-final, final and championship rounds. Or, choose your favorite team, and play out a full 70 or 80 game schedule against the other all-time great teams. With HOCKEY BLAST'S quick game time, you could conduct such a project in only a matter of weeks! Of course, the set is perfect for "hey, I've got some free time—let's play hockey!," grabbing a couple teams from your game box and lacing up the skates!
However you want to use these cards, they're sure to deliver realistic, hall-of-fame hockey! Each team is cumulatively rated based on its all-time historical performance. So Montreal will be the club to beat, while Hartford/Carolina will have a tougher path to your all-time title. Within this team ratings framework, each player is rated for his overall career performance: the high-flying scorers will repeatedly light the lamp on your game table; the staunch defenders will turn away plays; the legendary goalies will make memorable game-winning saves; the epic enforcers will shift the momentum with their shoulders and fists! It's like having your own hockey time machine, creating epic match-ups featuring legendary hockey players, whenever you want!
The All-Time Franchise Great Teams, Series TWO cards for HOCKEY BLAST give you 24 players for each of the twelve franchises, each presented in team colors on micro-perfed cardstock sheets for easy separation, for just $21 postage-paid!* Available March 20!
