Impact! Miniatures have the Bloody Sport Bases and has started a kickstarter for Forceball.
From their announcement:
Impact! Miniatures specializes in sports-themed games like our fantasy football game Elfball or Nuthin’ But Net basketball game. We were looking to expand earlier this year when we ran across Forceball, which was created by Swedish game maker Gigantoskop, when searching boardgamegeek for other sports games. The game debuted at Essen Spiel Fair 2007 and while reviews were good it was noted that it was very hard to find. In fact, the game was never released to distribution in Europe or the US. After several attempts, we were able to contact Gigantoskop and request copies of the game. We reviewed the game and concluded it was great fun but we could make some small modifications to streamline and improve it. We quickly reached a licensing agreement with Gigantoskop to make these improvements and then begin production.
We have received some copies of the finished product and are now looking for the funding to launch Forceball on a large scale but that takes capital and so we are pleased to offer this game to the Kickstarter community at a discount! Our goal is to get this great game into large scale circulation and share it with the gaming community.
Also, New Bloody Sports bases arrived from Germany. We'll try to get them in the store next week. 25mm bases
Impact! Miniatures has entered into an agreement to produce and distribute the Forceball card game. From their announcement:
Impact! Miniatures is pleased to announce they have agreed to a licensing agreement with Gigantoskop to produce and distribute Forceball. Impact. worked with the Gigantoskop team to refine the levels of play and rulebook. Forceball is a fast and futuristic sport card game. Each match consists of three periods. A period starts with a face-off to decide who's the attacker and who's the defender, and then progresses with the players taking turns either attacking or defending. The period ends when all cards in the deck have been used, and the deck is then reshuffled for the next period. There are five levels of play (Little League to All-Star) that add additional layers of complexity to the game. Forceball is a complete game in itself, not a trading card game. The game is easy to learn, easy to carry around in your pocket, and a period takes less than 15 minutes. It's suitable both as a filler and for lengthy tournaments. The game will retail for only $10 and will be released at Gencon. To find out more, you can check out Forceball on Boardgamegeek.com.Discuss
