If this is your first acquaintance with Strat-O-Matic, welcome to the hobby enjoyed by millions of sports fans since 1961. You will be welcomed enthusiastically by the many thousands of gamers (self-described “Strat-O-Matic Fanatics”) who connect in league play, online forums and national tournaments.

This is the hobby showcased in the Baseball Hall of Fame, in a Spike Lee film, on Broadway and in an award-winning book, Strat-O-Matic Fanatics. It is the hobby that helped inspire numerous big-league sports announcers.

The ease of play, realism and statistical accuracy of our games earn us exceptional loyalty, as have our constant efforts to improve our games based on the experiences of our customers.

Strat-O-Matic produces sports-simulation games that rate real players and teams accurately for professional baseball, football, basketball and hockey, and college football. Strat-O-Matic has the best-selling board games and computer text sims in our field, because we combine statistical realism with life-like strategy decisions in games that can be completed in a small fraction of the time it takes to watch a real game. Our fans keep coming back for more, because each time they play, they know their decisions influence victory or defeat.

Once you have a Strat-O-Matic game, you can always keep it up-to-date with the latest teams and player ratings we produce every year. When you play stock teams, you will see what makes the champions so good and the cellar-dwellers so bad. Because each player gets his own individual ratings, many Strat-O-Matic gamers also love to draft their own teams or experiment with a myriad of “What-If” scenarios.

Or you can time travel with our extensive lineup of historic seasons. Because of Strat-O-Matic’s well-established reputation for thorough research and statistical integrity, each era comes to life on your computer screen or tabletop. Enjoy baseball for every decade back to the 1800s, or football back to the 1950s, basketball to the 1960s and hockey to the 1940s.

However you enjoy sports, we invite you to explore the wide range of products listed on this Web site. With a few clicks you will join the Strat-O-Matic community throughout North America and across the world.
