i think it should be a pitcher of a GM or manager along with a player card...something that says your running the entire show...both or to vague

With the conclusion of the World Series, we'll be starting a HBD marketing campaign.

We'd like to know which ad you'd be more likely to click on.
I think you might be better served with a third option, one that has at least one liner somewhere on the ad that refers describes what the game is.  Something like what you have on the HBD home page: "Be the GM and Manager of your own Hardball Dynasty Franchise"

Without at least a minimal amount of verbiage, neither ad is very compelling.

Also, where are these ad's going to be run?

What's the target market? Male. Nerd. Likes women, but scared to talk to them.

Option 1, but drape a virtual HBD chick over Bradley.
Actually this is a little off but on the right track.
Every gambling site has a hot chick pointing or displaying something.    Remove the fake dude's head and stats.  Replace it with a hot chick standing there saying "You be the boss!"

People will click it.

That gives Hardball Dynasty a whole new meaning.

Which leads me to my genius idea (patent pending):  Lingerie Dynasty.

Lingerie Dynasty...How many seasons until I get a freebie?

Neither ad seems to tap into what really draws me into playing HBD. It's feeds the GM strategist need, while throwing in the thrill of the unknown, then making it challenging as heck because I'm pitted against other people who are as smart or smarter than I am.

FWIW, I voted #1 but I'd drop the dude's face.   It does scream "NERD!!!" 

c'mon, lets face it we're all nerds

Option 1



Option 2

Option 1 for sure - but why not take it one step further and put the DET and SF Team's (or even STL & NY too??) Don't use MT, nobody who sees that will click. Hell throw the Chicago and LA team logos in too.

But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain... 
Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete... 
Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case... 
Claire Standish: ...a princess... 
John Bender: ...and a criminal...

I can't see either. How can we see a larger version?

Well, maybe you are but I'm not.  And, if I were, I don't want someone screaming it in my face.

See?  This is nerdy.

Glad I don't know what movie he's referencing.
