Three Dice Soccer
This is a FREE GAME for the simple reason that it explains how you can rate all your own leagues, World Cups, etc., etc. It does come with English and Scottish Premier Leagues 2012/13 and 2010 World Cup for examples.
Simple to play and very quick. There is a master chart to tell you what the score is, although there may be an adjustment if the two red die are the same (a double). All you need is the home team's goal difference and the away team's goal difference, then you take one from the other, and roll.
It is excel so RIGHT CLICK and SAVE AS the link below .
Three Dice Archery
I am offering this game for free, mainly because I don't think many will bother as it is not a sport that has the sort of excitement other sports have as it is somewhat repetitious. However I think the game depicts the sport well enough to satisfy anyone who enjoys archery.
What you get: An excel file as I know some people like to juggle a bit with the basics.
There is a Quick Play Ranking Round where (for the Olympics for example) all the archers shoot 72 arrows to find an overall ranking. There is then a separate game engine for the knock out rounds for the top 64. In this they shoot up to five sets of three arrows per set (2 points for win 1 for draw) until someone reaches 6 points. If it finishes 5-5 there is a Golden Arrow rule for them to shoot one arrow to see who finishes nearest the bull. The 64 archers who contested at the 2016 Olympics are included, together with their Ranking Round scores which means you can have a further "Replay" ranking round if you wish. There is also a list of the current top 20 men archers with rankings to do what you like with. There is also an option to play the Ranking Round not quick play should you prefer
Three Dice Quick Play Cricket
Basic game description is that there is one throw for each batsman, then a throw to see how he is out, then another if there is a caught for the catcher. It is then up to individuals how d much deeper they go with things like weather, pitch conditions etc but those throws are only once per match or once per day.
The basic quick play element producing team scores, batting scores and bowlers number of wickets can be played within an hour.
However, I felt that more, if not all, gamers would want something deeper so you will find the ability to add weather, pitch conditions, run rates, bowling analysis, run chases etc, as well as various ways of adding slight variations. And something I feel is very important is the fact that you can easily rate all your own players from their career averages as well as giving them ratings for actual series if you prefer. To be safe this probably adds another hour to the game play.
This is a little deeper game play than the other games on the page but still very much quick playing.

FREE DOWNLOADS for use with this game:
"I am really pleased with this. It comes with 32 ready rated athletes from the last 40/50 years, including Daley Thompson.
It comes by way of a spreadsheet as there are simple helpers for each event. Such as adding movement in races, recording the various throws and distances. Each event is a game in its own right and can be used for Elite Athletes if need be as it is relatively easy to rate your own. If you prefer them to be in pdf form it is very easy to change them should you wish.
The running races are old favourites for those who know the Athletics game but the other events have a number of new ideas and I am particularly pleased with the long jump which has great potential."

HOLE BY HOLE GOLF
BASIC GAME ENGINE
WHAT YOU GET
BASIC ROLL CHART
Also included are 64 All Time Great golfers ready rated. The top 60 (at the time of writing) in the Race to Dubai for this season. It may change in the two/three week intervening but will be accurate enough to either simply play the final event (in advance) or you could play through a whole season, or part season. And the 2016 Ryder Cup already rated with a full scorecard (all the events) ready to use with the "real" players in place. There are a few courses with this issue including Dubai and Hazeldine.
It is relatively easy to rate both players and courses once you are into the game but I would like to issue full PGA and British Tour seasons rated if there is enough interest. There is plenty to be going on with but scope to add. I will certainly be adding more courses as I want those for myself.
Because it is actually something I have been working on for several months before the final "eureka" moment and a fair bit of research It comes as an excel file so you can do what you like with it and add to it as you see fit.
