World Basketball Manager: freeware Eurobasket 2007 edition

An amazing chain of events, that began with me getting drunk somewhere in downtown Athens, finally led to my finding out that the talented indy developers behind World Basketball Manager (a rather impressive and very addictive basketball management strategy game a la Football Manager ) have just released a WMB Eurobasket 2007 freeware version of their game, also available as another patch for the blissful owners of the original. You can download yourselves a copy here and guide the national team of your choice through this year's European finals. Too doom, apparently.

Mind you, proper squads with excellently researched stats & ratings will make sure your lacklustre performance seems realistic, whereas the sleek interface will guarantee a certain lack of managerial skills is brought forth. Oh, and the game is available in English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Lithuanian and Portuguese. Enjoy.

  1. Errr... I'd give this one a try but I'm not too sure about how much I care about basketball outside of the NBA... Interesting find nonetheless.

  2. Then again dear Ross, Greece did beat the NBAers of the US team last year in the World Championship semi-final... Better give Euro basket another chance methinks. It's a sport and not a show but way more interesting...

  6. Think I've heard some outrageous rumours on a canoe-manager thingy, but can't be sure. By the way, could you give Seamus a shirt r. Elderly. He's scaring the crowds...

    Well, roys my friend, all you'll ever need is some bball knowledge, which I for one seem to lack. I do know the ball is orange though...

  7. Actually Gnome there are tons of great basketball players from Europe, many of whom make their way here. I'm just not sure how much I'd like this one as I am mostly unfamiliar with Euro basketball.

    But since it's free I'll take a look at it...

  17. In the pie? Of course not. Milk doesn't mix well with lard, butter, bacon, back-bacon, pork and cheese.
