2011 Topps Attax

For the third year in a row, Topps has come out with an Attax game. This time the game has more of a baseball focus, rather than a general game that crosses all sports. Not that it really matters for anyone above the desired demographic. For most kids, this could be a fun game and it might actually be slightly more than just a glorified game of war. For most adults, this is just another set to collect, albeit a slightly different set than the rest.

This year, the cards are slightly different than the previous two years. The design is changed up a bit and the corners are rounded. By sampling the rules, there appears to be interesting things that can effect the game play by using the mascot and stadium cards. I'm not interested in actually playing this game, but I'm sure there are people out there who are. For those who are, this should prove to be an interesting twist.

The White Sox have ten cards in this set.

1 - Adam Dunn
9 - Alex Rios
11 - Alexei Ramirez
42 - Carlos Quentin
90 - Gordon Beckham
115 - John Danks
127 - Juan Pierre
169 - Paul Konerko
231 - Southpaw
256 - U.S. Cellular Field

There's enough changes in this game that it should bring in some more players. The design is better than in the two previous games. It's an interesting set for the collector and should be a fun way to spend your time, if you play the game.

I found a rack pack with Heyward on the front. There's $3.99 I'll never see again... Game looks interesting though. Looks like Attax and MLB Showdown got drunk one night and hooked up.

It's too Showdowny for me. I liked it better last year.

My first thought was UD Victory, but I see Showdown in this one too.
