ROLLER RUMBLE Classic Roller Derby Game

Ty "Golden Boy" Roy, Roller Derby Star

Remember watching roller derby on TV every Saturday morning when you were a kid? The heroes, the villains, the jostling and jamming, the ring-side interviews? Well, now you can re-live that experience, with the only game ever to realistically re-create the classic banked-track sport: ROLLER RUMBLE Classic Roller Derby simulation board game!

Imagine--those GOLDEN memories, come alive again! The great skaters, in their prime! Throwing elbows, trading jabs and talking smack as they circle the track. Your hero, leaving it all on the track for a last-minute, game-winning jam!

Yes, ROLLER RUMBLE roller derby board game authentically re-creates the rough-and-tumble world of the roller derby! Each skater is given an individual card that captures his or her unique abilties, just as you remember them. Bone-crunching hits, spectacular spills, finger-pointing free-for-alls, fights, momentum swings--it's all here! The action leading up to a jam can be tortuous or lightning-quick, hard-hitting, or an excercise in speed and grace. Jams can be high-scoring, or a complete stand-off, or anything in between. Sometimes they're even called OFF by the referee, if an infraction occurs or, say, a fan tosses debris on the track! Anything that can happen in the REAL derby, can happen in ROLLER RUMBLE Classic Roller Derby simulation board game! Skaters can get ejected for throwing punches at an opponent, or even get traded at the next intermission! Just like on TV! Remember?

ROLLER RUMBLE roller derby board game is EASY to play, even if you've never played a sports simulation board game before. It's TEXT based, not numerical, so there are no complicated indexes to calculate, no adding or subtracting. The game uses a deck of fast action cards, and will simply ask you to check a particular skater or skaters for a specific attribute--"is she MEAN?" "Is he BIG?" Depending on the answer, certain game actions will or won't happen. It's that simple. One trip through the deck equals a period of play, so the game times itself! ROLLER RUMBLE plays FAST--you can easily finish a full eight-period game in about 40 minutes. If you want, you can finish even faster with ROLLER RUMBLE's "TV Version," which--like the roller derby telecasts of the 1960s and '70s--joins the game at halftime.
