Okay, I know this form is kinda weak right now, but I do not want this game I am working on out broader than true Impact! fans right now  

So if any of you have a copy of Impact City Roller Derby and want to try out this new game, I need playtesters for. Please feel free to RE and/or PM me so I can get you the rules. (also it would be good to have 10 elfball dice the ones with X-blank-blank-circle-circle-star)  I want to eventually give this game to Impact to be able to expand their game line up and support more minis that would be FF related.

So anyone who signs up I would like to know that you won't run off with the premise for this game and make it your own.  Basically a gentlemen's Non-disclosure Agreement.

Thanks in advance.

PS if you live in the DFW area (Texas) and want to try to meet me somewhere I could show you this game and get some fresh input.

Sounds fascinating, I don't have the Roller Derby game or I would jump at the opportunity.

you could print the board using standard 8x11 and just play tiny scale if you wanted.  Do you have any minis on 20mm or smaller bases (gnomes, deadlings, etc).

I don't have any 20mms but I should be able to figure out some proxies, wargame markers if nothing else!

Do you have 10 elfball dice, if not you can proxy regular dice 1=x, 2,3=blank, 4,5=circle; 6=star.

PM me your email and I either share the google docs or email you them in MS word format if you prefer.  Just let me know in the email.

I would love some blind playtest feedback.

playtesters and others interested in discussion see this thread: http://artistsunited.myfreeforum.org/sutra43563.php#43563
I am a mod on the ICRD forum so I will put the thread there so I can monitor it just a little better.

any progress, Thom?  or does any other forum member have any interest in play-testing.

I hope to get a couple of videos up in the next week or two now that I am on summer break.  I will post them in the ICRD forum.

Thanks for trying.  I am in the process of tweaking the game more to be a one off type thing rather than league based.  When I get the tweaks done I will let you know.  If you ever get a chance (after I get the edits done), I would appreciate any feedback you have on the rulebook itself.

Again, thanks for trying I totally understand about finding willing participants.[/i]

I have finished my first draft of the one off version.  It is a lot more like ICRD than elfball now.  But has a ball instead of a lead jammer designation.  And no cards, just elfball dice.  Board is almost identical the ICRD and could be played on that board with minor modifications.

If anyone else wants to try it feel free to email me.  Might release a slightly modified version on BGG that would pretty much just use ICRD components to get a broader playtest base.

PS Thom, I send you a link to the new rules in your email.

Got a playtest game in with my son after streamlining the game to be a one off game.

We know the rules well and play lasted just under an hour averaging 6min per turn.

Game plays 2-4 players and uses the ICRD board with minor modifications and elfball dice.

Going to get a game play video made hopefully before I have to go back to teaching from summer break.
