Cribbage and Baseball Unite at eCribbage.com

'Round The Bases, a Sports Cribbage Game Combining America's Favorite Past Time With the Strategy of Cribbage, Is Coming Online to eCribbage.com

BETHLEHEM, PA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Damien Blond, the founder and developer of eCribbage.com, and David Anderson, the founder of Sport Card Gaming, LLC and creator of popular sports cribbage game 'Round The Bases, have formed a partnership to bring 'Round The Bases online for the first time. The targeted release date is April 1, 2011.

'Round The Bases is a true action sports game involving the skill and strategy of the game of cribbage and the competitive action of a real baseball game. When playing 'Round The Bases, expect singles, doubles, triples, home runs, strike outs, stolen bases, double plays, all happening in a three inning game. 'Round The Bases never plays the same twice.

"This will be the first sports cribbage game we are adding to eCribbage.com," Blond says. "I am excited to bring the baseball experience into eCribbage.com. This game will cater towards sports fans and card game fans alike!"

David Anderson is looking forward to making his vision of 'Round The Bases online a reality. "Imagine having players step up to home plate and the crowd noise begins to grow. The players are playing their best cribbage earning points to make a play on the field. Maybe you have a monster hand. The hands are counted and then you hear the crack of the bat with the crowd cheering as the runner starts to move around the bases trying to make a safe hit. All ending with the umpire finally shouting Safe or You're Out!"

eCribbage.com is a fast growing online cribbage community catered towards revitalizing cribbage and bringing the best cribbage experience online. eCribbage has recently surpassed 30,000 registered players, hosts league play and up to six tournaments a day, and has 10 exciting cribbage games to keep the cribbage enthusiast entertained.

"Sport Card Gaming would like to say that being given the opportunity to bring 'Round The Bases onto the best cribbage website on the planet is a dream come true," says David Anderson. "It is an honor to be in partnership with eCribbage.com to produce the first sports cribbage site dedicated to cribbage players who enjoy real sports competition. Creating, producing, and introducing the game to hundreds of people who now play the board game on their own has been an adventure. Some of the folks have even formed leagues with multi-game seasons, play-off matches, and ending in a version of the cribbage World Series. 'Round The Bases is true 'Major League Cribbage.' With the game about to be introduced on eCribbage, this is an opportunity for my game to be played by thousands of people who have not yet seen or played the game. Please give 'Round The Bases a try, and bring your game to the field. Batter Up!"

The 'Round The Bases Board game is available for purchase at http://ecribbage.com/buy.php or http://www.sportcardgaming.com/games.html.
