FACE TO THE MAT Pro Wrestling simulation board game is EASY and FUN to play! The game uses a deck of text-based fast-action cards along with a booklet of "highlight reel" results to create amazingly detailed pro wrestling action AND story-lines. You choose your wrestlers, flip the cards, read the results. The fast-action cards direct the wrestling action, the "highlight reel" booklet guides the story-line. It's that simple! Wrestlers perform in the ring just like they do in real-life, based on a dozen different qualities like strength, quickness, power and agility. Everyone from the "superstars" to the "jobbers" can be expected to recreate their real-life abilities, at YOUR command. The "highlight reel" booklet will guide you through the twists and turns of a real wrestling show, everything from grudge match challenges, face and heel "turns," TV interviews, and eyebrow-raising, cliff-hanger endings. Yes, this game generates its OWN "heat!" Imagine the fun you'll have, watching your very OWN wrestling story unfold!
