Both Spiky and I have own copies of Forceball for a while, yet neither of us had ever played the game; until tonight!

Spiky, who has been working in my area in the midweek recently, has been visiting to play games/chat/paint/eat pizza. When deciding what to play today I mention Forceball and he agreed it would be worth a try.

We played 3 periods using the basic 'little league' rules and then looked at the more complicated versions for future attempts at the game.

We both agreed that the game had a nice simple structure and we began to get some strategic play happening by the end of the 3rd period.

Spiky won 3-2 (he went 2-0 up because I didn't read the bit that says that the ball changes hands after a score).

Definitely an interesting game and one that I will be having another go at soon.

Chris

I love it myself.
I played it a few times with my daughter, but she didn't really get into it.

When I taught the game to my son-in-law however, he had a blast playing this one.

Forceball is a solid 2 player card game.   The levels of rules were designed to allow you have the complexity you desire and change the rules based on your opponent.

I created the 2nd level of the game from the original because that was the level that my younger sons thought was the fun level.   A little bit of complexity but not too many rules.

Shame it doesn't sell better but I still think its a solid part of Impact!'s store.
