Just a quick right-on to Impact! Miniatures, who are doing some much-needed exploration of the Blood Bowl gamespace with their appealingly lo-fi Elfball sets. Check the rules PDF here if you care to. They’ve also acquired a fantasy-themed basketball game and, well, if you’ve ever wished for some white-metal hockey sticks on a sprue, they’ve got the hookup.
(While we’re talking Blood Bowl, I can’t remember if I gave a review of the PC version or not. I will tell you that I’ve played the DS version a bit and it’s actually better. The isometric view is unfortunate, though; I prefer nice, square grids, Advance Wars-style.)
Whoa. I’m jealous. Where did you get your hands on the DS version?
I didn’t, a friend did. I played it and didn’t ask questions.
