Great game...from the creator of Brokenbat comes a dynamic college basketball experience.

I helped with the beta version and from the very beginning it has been a pleasure of an experience. Good solid game engine. And the recruiting aspect is what makes this game so special. For both casual and diehard players. And relatively fast paced, one game per day. Seasons move along nicely with very little dead time in the off-season. Give it a shot you won't regret it. Oh, and like already mentioned the community is like no other, both on the forums and the discord server.

Great game with a huge database. Recruiting is thrilling. One gets to control almost every aspect of a bball team.

Wow...this game is fantastic and free!

Give it a try. The best basketball game engine and the admin is very responsive to the players.

Downside is that it's totally college basketball. The pro basketball part of the game is pretty limited -- but it does advertise as a college basketball simulation.

No matter where you recruit
Really competitive
May sometimes hire walk-on
Sometimes enrollment is one thing
Also Boston University has determined that the downturn may even give me up

Hardwood really is a great online browser basketball manager sim. Every aspect of the game is well done and it tries to mirror real life college basketball as best it can. It accomplishes that pretty well.

The games creator prides himself on satisfying the player population and he is very engaged and involved in the game. That is something that is rare these days and I tip my hat to his dedication to HW.

I would highly recommend hardwood to the college basketball enthusiast.

I'm not entusiastic about Hardwood like guys above. Game is boring a little and there is not much to do as manager. An average game at most in my opinion

This is definitely a thinking man’s game. There is a game every day. If you choose, you can play your default lineup and tactics. For the hardcore managers, they scout their opponent and adjust their lineup and tactics accordingly. Plus you can change your tactics at half-time depending on the game situation. It doesn’t have a lot of splashy graphics, but everything works really well and the game engine is probably the most realistic of any online basketball simulation.

Great game! After a couple of seasons, I have recruited a new team of players and my team is doing well. It takes a while to get your roster stocked, but it’s a really fun game – the only college basketball game of this type out there.

Game engine is very realistic. Truly like running & coaching your own college basketball program. Entirely free too! 500+ other players to compete against plus it has its own podcast. Give it a try

This game has a great community of players. Some of them started their own weekly podcast on youtube!

The game has a very good idea but the game engine is really really bad. Especially to rebounds or turnovers, away of reality and a lot of random!
Too bad because I repet, the game it was built very good.

This game is the greatest. A bit of a learning curve, but worth the effort.

Nice game but a lot of random, specially at the matches.

Best basketball game – a must for college hoops fans!

Very disappointed about the engine, it's completely random.
It's more a recruiting game, nothing to do with techniqal parts of the basketball

Great basketball game. Covers everything: recruiting, player development and game strategies. Game engine is more accurate than most other games. Wish there was a football game like this.
