I’m British, so as far as I’m concerned a ‘puck’ is something from Midsummer Night’s Dream and nothing whatsoever to do with organised sporting events. But if I’m to succeed at all in Franchise Hockey Manager 2014, that’s a prejudice I need to overcome.
Join me, for 40 minutes (yes, 40 minutes) of grueling statistical action and hand-drawn hockey faces as I attempt to lead a lower league team of English chancers to glorious victory on the ice. There will be rosters. There will be baffling drop-down menus. And there will be no-holds barred ice hockey (text) action.
