We've already self published Pocket Cricket and had some success here in Australia.

We published 1000 trial sets and sold out in two months. We've received another shipment of 2000 and hope all continues well.

With that to encourage me, I'm looking at other sports to 're-do'. There are plenty of "dice sports games" that have come and gone, so we're looking to capture a point of difference in our line up.

I'm now looking at 3 new titles aimed at 3 separate markets.

Pocket AFL - for here in Oz. Pocket Ice Hockey - north America. Pocket Soccer/Footbal - Europe.

As we did a couple of years ago here at BGG, I'm calling for play-testers to roll and give feedback.

I've said many times....we are making dice games...not strategy games....they are dice rolling, fast action portable luck based games, to go inline with our Pocket Sports theme.

All three beta versions are ready for people to use D6 and follow table. We'll have custom dice/bag etc. when finally published.

Reply to this thread if you are interested to playtest.

Regards

Hamish

I'd be most interested in a soccer game (women seem to be more interested in soccer in the US than men are -- probably because the US women were/are better at it), and a baseball game, if you make one.

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

Hi Judy / Sturv

I'll send through the beta version.....you can just use a D6 to playtest....

The 'Skillz' die is designed to be a game within a game. It can be used for FIFA points in tournaments....or just to make the commentary more exciting for the highlights!

And yes, Rugby Union.
