Here's a golf one from the same guy, that isn't on the game page for some reason. Kinda fun in the same one-button manner. In this one, you only have control over occasionally upgrading one of your three skills (distance, accuracy, putting):

Womens' college volleyball sim. Very simple and basic. No strategy involved other than one-click recruiting and then selecting your final 8 players on tryout day.

Yet it's oddly addicting. I took UNLV from Mountain West bottom feeder to Elite 8 team by my 5th season.

Starting my 6th year now and it should be my best one. Kelly Sousa, a junior, is my first ever All-American. There's also Olubunmi Iisakka, another junior who is the only player in my tenure to be All-Conference all three seasons she's played... not even Sousa did that. We have a couple other All-Conference players. One's a senior who got her first nod there. The other is Sheeka Demars, a sophomore I thought could have made it her freshman season.

This might finally be the season we knock off the BYU behemoth. They've won the conference every single year so far, although one season, #4 I think, they won a tiebreaker with Wyoming. The Pokes were the #2 power in the conference for most of six years, but last season they regressed to a mid-tier team.

San Diego State, on the other hand, has stayed a bottom feeder. I don't think they've even broken .500, which would be 7-7, yet.

Oh and just to recap my notes

Code:
Year 1: 5-9 2009 Year 2: 5-9 2010 Year 3: 7-7 2011 Year 4: Erin Phillips (JR) All-Conference Olubunmi Iisakka (FR) All-Conference 11-3 2012 - Made it to NCAA Tournament Ranked #33 #38 UNLV - 10 seed in Midwest Region @ 7 seed USC Upset #7 seed USC 3-0 2nd round @ 2 seeed Mississippi Valley State Lost @ MVSU 0-3 MVSU made it to Championship - L to 1 seed LSU Amy Martinez - Jump Serve Volleyball HoF 270 hits, 130 block/dig, 49 serve, 125 error Contract extended to 2014 Year 5: First season - no walk-ons Erin Phillips (SR) All-Conference Olumbunmi Iisakka (SO) All-Conference Kelly Sousa (SO) All-Conference 12-2 2012 - Beat everyone in conference excepted undefeated BYU #30 rank - NCAA Tournament #32 UNLV - 8 seed in East Region vs 9 seed Texas Beat #9 seed Texas 3-0 2nd round @ #1 seed Hampton Upset #1 seed Hampton 3-2!!!! 25-22 final set the closest Sweet 16 vs #4 seed Idaho Upset #4 seed Idaho 3-1!!!! Elite 8 vs #3 seed Gardener-Webb Lost to #3 seed G-W 3-1 - beaten soundly last two games Contract extended to 2017 Jacyln Stern - JSVHOF 323 hits, 91 block/dig, 117 serve,223 error Year 6: Suzanne Passman (SR) All-Conference Olubunmi Iisakka (JR) All-Conference Kelly Sousa (JR) All-American!!! Sheeka Demars (SO) All-Conference

Year 6 yet to be played of course.


AWESOME AWESOME game! I played as WVU and won it all in 2015 as a 6 seed coming off undefeated season, but never had o play someone higher than 3. Took out 11 and 13 to get to Sweet Sixteen, then a lower seed to get out and a 4 and 3 in the Final Four and Championship[. Got lucky with that. I had two All Americans and four ALl Conference, but still quite lucky I think.

Just had a final Four appearance in 2016 as the #3 seed, so I think I'm done., but it was fun.

Fun stuff...I was not surprisingly canned after my 9th year. My back-to-back conference titles and 3 straight 2nd round losses were the best I could do - once those seniors graduated, I couldn't get my mojo back.

2017: 0-14
2016: 8-7 First Round
2015: 4-10
2014: 7-7

I've killed lots of 2 days on this now. Cheating or not, sometimes the game just gives you shit recruits for a couple years and then it's all over. I still haven't been able to get past the Final 4.

That's pretty much what happened to me.

And how exactly do you cheat in this game? What am I missing? Haha.

Fairly simple. The game is pretty lenient with use of the back button.

One cool thing was watching my conference get better. Our position in the conference went down over time, but our national ranking went up.

Only made it past the first round once, though.

...disclaimer: Yeah, I cheated. I was curious.

Yeah, I got curious too and did the same thing with Gonzaga leading them to 3 straight ntl titles. Wanted to see whether it'd improve my recruits or something else. All it seemed to do was make sure that if I had a winning record, we'd always get an at-large, even if it mean the WCC had to go 4-deep to do it.

We've probably give this game more action in the past week than it's seen in years judging from the coaches Hall of Fame.

You can still force the game to make new recruits, if you don't like the current batch. But still a neat game.

Which makes me wonder if the creator or website host is like WTF is going on here?

You don't suppose we had anything to do with this did you?

I think I broke it.

You're under contract through 2190 but I can't promise anything beyond that.

Do a better job next season ... or else!




They can't promise me anything more than the 63 years I have on my contract.
