Product Description

Overview Forceball is a fast and futuristic sport card game for 2 players. 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. During a period the attacker uses his attack maneuvers - Pass, Dribble or Shot - to try to score a goal. The defender uses his defense maneuvers - Block, Tackle or Interception - to try to prevent a goal. If the attacker scores a goal or the defender intercepts the ball, the roles are reversed and the game continues. In addition to the regular attack and defense maneuvers, the players can use special maneuvers to score a lucky shot or intercept the ball using the goalie. It's also possible to foul by making illegal maneuvers, but beware - you don't want the referee to see you. Forceball consists of 55 cards and 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 filler and for lengthy tournaments. Level of Play There are five levels of play in Forceball. The game adds or modifies rules to add layers of strategy to the game. They are: 1. Little League - Base set of rules. No extra options. 2. Junior League - Adds Face-Off rules, options for adjusting your speed and cards from your hand or speed pile can power up a maneuver by 1. 3. Minor League - Cards from your hand or speed pile add their speed requirement to the maneuver to help win the attack. Special abilities Lucky Shot and Goalie are added in. 4. Major League - Adds in Fouling rules and the Referee and Stress special abilities. 5. All-Star Series - Adds in Raised Stakes to make the value of points variable.

Verified Purchase
Kickstarter, for those of you who don't know, is a web based company that lets you donate money to people that want to do something, but don't have the money to do it on their own. Forceball started there, and was fully funded because people thought the game would be fun just by reading about it. You can no longer donate to the Kickstarter campaign, but now you can buy it. Independent companies like this one need our support to keep coming up with new and fun ideas. Big corporations are only interested in giving you the same thing that they have before because it makes money. How long has Monopoly been around? How many versions are there? How different is the latest version from the first one you played as a kid? That one I'll answer. Not very much. Indy companies work hard to come up with new and incredible games, and this is easily one of the best I've seen in a while.

Why would you care about indy companies like this one? Forceball is a why. The setting is a little silly, hockey with lasers, and the art could be better, but the game play is great (That's why we buy games right?). 55 cards are all you get, and all you need. The game is set up into 3 periods, which end when the empties and you try to draw a card. So, the number of cards ties to the length of the game. It's quick to play, and a lot of fun.

I said that it has a high educational value because it is a great way to teach tactics. If you try to win every fight, and go all out to win them all, you could fall short and let the advantage to the other team.

Overall, it's a lot of fun to play, and for the price, can't be beaten.
