Description & Details


Play the most exciting moment of baseball in this fast-paced dice and card game!

"A different sort of baseball game but still one that can capture your imagination." - Larry Sullivan, App Review Central

"A very well designed and enjoyable game that does an excellent job capturing the strategy and fun of baseball." - Nick Vigdahl, Touch Arcade

"If you're a fan of board games then there's definitely a lot to love here." - Harry Slater, Pocket Gamer

It’s a beautiful day here at the ballpark, and this game has been a squeaker! Everyone expected the league leaders to roll into town and easily defeat the home team. But the scrappy upstarts have played the game of their lives and managed to keep the score tied right until the end. Their fatigue is showing and now it's their last chance. If the home team batters don’t score a run now, the visitors will be sure to win the game in extra innings. It all comes down to the Bottom of the 9th!

Will you lead the underdogs to victory? Or will you defend the league leaders’ unbroken winning streak?

Bottom of the 9th is a strategic 2-player baseball game played with cards and dice. This faithful adaptation brings the fast-paced fun of the tabletop game to your phone and tablet! Choose your lineup from a pool of players with different strengths and abilities, outsmart your opponent in the stare-down, then roll the dice to trigger the action.

Bottom of the 9th offers many ways to play:
• Compete in single player against a computer opponent (3 levels of difficulty)
• Take on the Manager's Challenge 6-game solo campaign mode
• Pass and play on your device with a friend
• Challenge a friend to play online
• Find a worthy opponent in a ranked online match
• Organize a casual online exhibition game

The powerhouse visitors have 6 dynamite pitchers to choose from, including:
• Wake Louder throws a nasty knuckleball that can get a lost ball just into the edge of the strike zone.
• Southpaw Straw is a talented lefty pitcher with one dangerously effective (and illegal) spitball.
• Hurricane Patriss is a top notch reliever, and the only thing more hypnotic than his curveball is his voice.

Don't count out the home team! They have a dozen batters, each with their own special powers, including:
• Mully Nomah can be devastating against the pitching team when runners are in scoring position. He can clobber a pitch and get those base runners home!
• Kerry Rumble has power behind her swing. She has the ability to crush the ball hard, at the cost of hitting lots of fouls. She just can’t resist taking a swing!
• K.C. Petty is truly a powerhouse when the chips are down. The more strikes he gets, the bigger he swings.
• Hannah Cait may look innocent, but when she's in the zone she calls all the shots! This rookie's level of control over her swing is the envy of many a veteran.

Both teams have access to 2 support characters who provide special abilities to one or both teams:
• Dice Dixon has no problem taking chances coming out from the dugout, benching batters and challenging umps!
• Doc Mullins is always looking after the health of the team, whether that means a more rested pitcher or more energized batters!

The Manager's Challenge solo campaign mode puts you right in the dugout as a team manager. Can you lead your team to the playoffs in a 6-game homestand?
• Play 6 game solo campaigns as the home team against a revolving cast of pitchers.
• Compete in 9 different game situations, including multiple inning games.
• Each campaign game is played using one of 6 effect cards that change the feel of the game.

~~~ There’s nothing that’s quite like the thrill you feel in the Bottom of the 9th! ~~~

Compatible with Android devices with NEON CPU support. Older devices with Tegra 2 CPUs are not compatible. The recommended minimum amount of device RAM is 1 GB.

Bottom of the 9th is an officially licensed product of “Bottom of the 9th” from Greater Than Games and Dice Hate Me Games.

Just like the board game!!! This game really captures the excitement of the bottom of the 9th inning. Graphics are great. Controls are smooth. No lag at all when rolling the dice during contact phase. The new Manager's Challenge is awesome!!!

Can't select line up. Game gets stuck, freezes. Doesn't play well on my Samsung S8. Plays on my Samsung tablet though. Sent report.

Love the tabletop version. The app version loses a little of the fun of playing across from your opponent. Watching them and trying to out guess them (ala real baseball). That aside, the app is a beautiful r creation of the app. Attention has been paid to even the smallest details. If I had a complaint it would be that something of the card text is difficult to read on a small phon screen. Otherwise great game and looking forward to the expansion.

Handelabra really hit it out of the park with this one. I've noticed a few minor issues with Hurricane Patriss's intentional walk. The computer will give an automatic strike rather than walk sometimes. Also if any ability tries to raise relief above 0 the game freezes on my Galaxy S6.

Meh. The port of the board game may be fine but the game itself is meh. It's much too luck based with few decisions that can't be made automatically. I bought it so i may play it a few more times but I'd rather have my money back

Between the graphics, controls, and music, Handelabra hit a home run with this adaptation of a board game. It is a nice quick filler game for a commute or a short break. However don't let the length fool you. There is plenty of strategy in this great game.

Awesome company, great people, go watch there live stream every Tuesday @sentinelslive on twitch. You will see what i mean.
Andrew 5
One suggestion: in online play, the rollng to see whether the runner is safe gets tedious, there should be a faster way to resolve this.
Nathaniel 5
They really hit it out of the park with this one. Pardon the pun. Plays smoothly. Just like the board game. Well done Handelabra!
Levi 5
Wish all board games were ported this well.

Another great game by a great company!
