Battleball

A quick, lite version of a combat based football game. Movement and possesion of the ball are handled using various dice. Each team has a wide variety of players that they use to try and drive the football into the opponents endzone to score. Some are fast running, fumble prone darts while others are slow moving, football gripping tanks with a few hard hitting lineman thrown in to help you bulldoze your way to victory.

The first half starts you out with a full roster, but this game is rough. By the time the second half rolls around you could be fielding a much smaller team as some of your players, will more than likely, have been seriously injured by now and unable to take to the field.

The turns are quick, the strategies you use will be greatly affected by luck and the overall feel that you are playing a game of football is a little light. But is it fun? In a word… Yes.
