Just released my first print and play game
Wizard Dodgeball is now in the wild. I'd appreciate any feedback on it.
Thanks

"Just like the dodgeball you know, the players that don’t dodge the ball are eliminated, a caught ball eliminates the thrower, the winner is the last team left on the court. But, that’s just the beginning! Wizard Dodgeball allows teams to throw spells in addition to balls. Boost your team, freeze your opponents, teleport balls back to your side, and watch out for fireballs!"

Looks interesting, and impressively well-made, just not the sort of thing that I'm really capable of assembling and playing at the moment

Thanks! I'm actually planning a Kickstarter (along with pretty much everyone else at this point) depending on the interest level.

And the first clarifications arrive:

(pg1)
Turn
Each wizard has two action points on their turn that can be used for any combination of the following:
Move
Throw a ball
Pass a ball
Cast a spell
Picking up or dropping a ball is a free action

(pg4)
Picking up/Dropping a ball
A wizard may pick up a ball from any adjacent space that is not beyond the neutral zone for free (no action taken)

I think it's a great theme, but you lost me at character stat cards. I'm too much of a Euro fan for that kind of thing.

Looks fun! Do you have a single PDF compilation of everything, for those of us printing for the first time?

I have everything broken up into separate pdf's. I thought that might make it easier in case you want to print on different types of paper.

All files can be found at the website.

I could make a combo pdf if that would also be helpful.

I think I could be talked into putting a copy together and shipping it to someone going to Origins if the recipient would take it to Origins and play a couple of games to get some feedback.

Any takers?

Rules clarifications now being tracked on the game's page. Mostly typos or omissions and no "real" changes.
