One of the guys off the Ausbowl site showed us this new and interesting game from Greebo here is a quote from them regarding it:
This is a Gaelic Football sport. I mean that rules are from Gaelic football, but story and background is more fun and interesting. Manual is 164 pages, but only 15 are rules, other are story about all realms and relative races 15 simple pages in A5 format, really easy, newbie can learn all in 20 minutes and at the end of this time can teach to other! Only 2d6 , not special dices, no rulers.
Field 11x16 all in scale 10mm, so very very portable and no expansive costs.
7 vs 7 in field,you can pass only forward or lateral (like in Gaelic football), you have to use your race to make a goal inside a Gaelic door where goalkeeper can ward. Only 7 player, so all move will be very strategic. All races have 3 different team leader whit great special skill. One example:
Tactician Goblin This leader can move 3d3, have a skill called "Voracious" and can try to eat one player ( not remove from game, only in stomach and every turn try to escape, can eat one per time.) Also if tactician receive or go on ball, he eat it! So restart whit new kick start! Now i cant explain in specify all rules about this creature, but it is very tactician, because if you are in vantage you can try to eat ball and end first time early!
Every Leader have special skills, and they can change sort of battle in field!
Classic date for creature, Movement, Strength , Agility, Constitution, Play Ball ( new stat used to pass, kick, pick up and all thing about ball), player can do tackles, similar to BB, but dont have special dices, lucky is reduced by new system Do not be fooled, can remember fantasy football, but its different. Yena, European champion of BB, have play a Demo and lost in 6 turns because think that play like BB.
All game is think to play fast game in 20 / 40 minutes for people that have to work, family, wife or girlfriend, or simple no time. Also in this scale you can play in very small spice, all portable but still detailed!
Every month we product new team, we have a forum dedicate to this new game where people can vote about new team download updated pdf about roster, talk about new rules and propose, fix and bug,
Also we add mercenary that team can buy , 50 in total for all.
Here you can find races available pictures
This game looks really interesting. It plays on a smaller pitch then Bloodbowl and it uses only 2d6 to determine the out come of skills,passing etc.
in the same email they mentioned that they are alot closer to getting the English version of the box ready and will post a review of it once I get my copy for now here are some pics of what minis look like. Remember they are 10mm in scale and use 20mm bases even the big guys are on 20mm bases.
and the next race to come out the POFFY:
over all with 27 races [basically 1 race per month] and a smaller table and time requirements this game is certainly got my interest. Will keep you posted one what I learn and how it plays.
