A pack of playing cards used in conjunction with the mathematically calculated (very clever) playing board ensures that the results of your game is as authentic as cricket proper.

100% luck (flip over cards, look up result in table). Feels like you're watching a game rather than participating in one, but scores points purely for nostalgic reasons.

There is about as much strategy in this, than there is in Snakes and Ladders, except it goes on for HOURS!!!!! Was fun as a kid making up players names, keeping stats. Not exactly a "game" though.
