Cheers Andy. Expect the front page to be filled with Wigan Athletic news and pictures of me on the beach supping a large cocktail (photoshopped, unfortunately).
Lovely! Are they MDF? I wish I had space for more 28mm stuff.
If I get chance to come down I’ll be bringing both games and some painting stuff.
I am well up for a few games of this Craig (I love my feudal Japan stuff). I have some blank dice, cards can be printed and tokens can be fashioned from Joann’s craft beads. I can definitely have them all painted up and mounted on 60mm bases in time for your large scale game next Christmas.
I have a bunch of 28mm samurai, will these do? Or do I need extra in-game bobs and bits?
I’d like to echo Craig’s sentiments. Happy Yuletide everyone.
Nope, I think only board admins can do this.
I'll see if I can fathom how to put this on the front page the way that Andy has posted some stuff.
Not sure I’ll be down tonight chaps. I’ve left myself a mountain of wrapping to do and I should probably get it started. Have a fun evening.
Nice write up. We need a “thumbs up” option so we can lazily show our appreciation for such things.
No problem. Anyone that wants a game let me know. It will last 30-45 minutes, tops.
Once Christmas is out of the way I'll book in some learner games prior to the season commencing.
I'll also fathom how to get the rules uploaded somewhere.
Global football has moved beyond the restrictive rules of the Premier League and the NFL. Physical enhancements have made the combined sport more intense and more deadly. Players have developed distinctive skills to overpower enemy players. Some are fast. Some are strong. All are out to eliminate their opponents.
Plan your strategy to get safely into the end zone. Your opponent will do everything he can to destroy your players and take possession of the ball. Can you become, the Wigan Battleball Champion 2018??
This is a lovely, simple, quick (unless you're playing against Darren) game. I have 2 copies, one of which I will leave at the club. You will play a regular season against 3-4 opponents, fast and furious.
Conquest will require learner games and Cube Quest will require multiple copies. I do however own most of the expansions for the hateful TTR......
@ Darren: I was making a glorious trophy but Joann’s dad being unwell put the kibosh on me finishing it.
@ Andy: Your player’s underpants are red. Your underpants are brown. Shamefully brown.
Trying to get a pass for this. Anyone got any ideas for a long(ish) multiplayer game[e.g Twilight Imperium]/competition [e.g. Ticket to Ride]/mini campaign [e.g. Warmachine]? Maybe something people can dip in and out of (if for example they are summoned home against their wishes by a fearsome spouse. Hypothetically speaking.......)
After a short and arduous season, Average Joes captured the 2017 Wigan Bowl crown in the absence of anyone else actually bothering to pull their fingers out to try and win.
Yes, Darren’s human all-lineman/8 re-roll abomination went unbeaten, much to the chagrin of, well, just me actually (probably because Darren did a Darren and thought of a way to annoy me AND win at the same time).
As the Joes celebrations went on into the night, The Accident & Emergency fans were left to rue what might have been, as they slowly roasted their head coach, Andy, over the lava pit beneath their stadium. Indeed, when his burns heal, he will be forced to wear The Brown Underpants of Shame.

Much respect to the lads who have worked on this forum to get it up and running, it looks great and has a few features that should help us organising games. Cheers lads.
Is this the same Mungo Jerri that featured on "Come on you Latics"?
