Just picked this up for a dollar at a thrift store this weekend. Everything was there, some parts weren't even punched. Only thing missing was the ball. Any ideas on a decent looking replacement?

I've Got 2, I think. I could dig it up for you if you want me to mail it to ya. I also have a couple painted blood bowl balls, I could send one of those if you prefer.

They also have several alternative balls here:

(and the previous page).

Though not many in stock at the moment.

There's also this entry on I came across on ebay: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...

Apparently they're selling some parts to the game, mostly extra figures but also a ball token.

I also bought this game at a Goodwill for $1.99. Its missing 4 figures but everything else is there including the unpunched cards. Pretty neat looking game but no way to play it with the missing figures.

I found a thrift store copy for a few bucks and it had a Lego Minifig standing in for one of the players. Works good enough.

You can get the authentic pieces from Boardgames R' Us's site. Which I believe is boardgamesrus.com. I just got the game myself for 89 cents at Goodwill.Missing 1 blue team lineman and the ball. There was a ball bearing in there, which apparently someone thought would work for the ball. It doesn't.

Anyway...check that site out. The parts aren't terribly expensive.

Take a peanut, paint it brown, put stitches on it with a fine tipped pen. Base it on a penny. It actually looks good too, if you flock the base.
