Bargainball

by dollarone - MiniLD 70 Entry

It's 2016 and football has for a long time been completely figured out by statisticians and big computers. One can now calculate the outcome of a match - or even a season - by looking at the team and players' stats and probabilities.

One might think this would lead to football becoming boring and no longer interesting; but instead the opposite has happened, as now clever use of the stats can allow smaller and less rich clubs to succeed through analysis and statistics.

Take charge of the lousiest football team in the division. Get some players in and win the league by using statistics to your advantage: it's time for a game of Bargainball.

Edit: Added an Android app so I can play on my phone even without an internet connection!

Interesting take on the theme, taking a very undeterministic game and turning it into a sort of deterministic game :p

Seems comprehensive. Very nice idea.

Interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the MiniLD #70 games, if you’d like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/WTS6C8jPNVI
