I'll tell you what, CW, if you do, it's gonna because a large part of Doyle Shick. The guy has three stats.. and they're all starred!! That means that even if the opponent HAS the skill, he wins and advances you one step towards a jam (a power jam is the 4th step on the track, a regular jam is the 3rd step), and by the end of the game, where I was checking stats that he had that the opposing pivot didn't, that's TWO steps on the jam. It was NUTS.

I was trying to sub you out, you guys only have 3 jammers (and if you put a non -jammer in the spot, his skills do not count when checking the points on a jam).. and then King Johnny got tossed, so it's just you and Von Detox

Roller Rumble is one of the best tabletop games from a non-major genre I've ever seen.

If you've got it & remember the LA T-Birds with the same fondness I do, be sure to get the user-created cards at tabletop-sports.com -- Ralphie Valladares, Skinny Minny Gwen Miller, Mister Mean Harold Jackson, Psycho Ronnie Rains & a whole bunch more
(92 players carded in the set).

They're in the "Download" section, under "Other Games"/"Roller Rumble"

I remember your loop that you were posting over on Delphi Forums, Jon.. I had one too (under the username Tarislan, you'd need to be a paid member to search, let me see if I can find you a link)

Y'know, you really ought to finish that sometime, if only to get the All-Star game in there (nice idea with the format & perfectly modern-era-comes-to- roller-derby-gimmicky).

Yeah yeah, I know ... I'm a fine one to talk to anybody about what they "ought" to finish when it comes to dynasties

I'm planning to run it after week 5 of the FRDL

(Basically, for those of you who didn't read that link, I had an idea for a AllStar game that would bring all the teams for one big game.. this was a standard Roller Derby League, (the women's team would skate the odd periods the men's the even periods, 8 periods).

The 8 Teams would be paired up, and represent the east and west. Each team would skate two periods (1 men 1 women) against their rival. The result would count in the standings.. and at the end of the night, teams would get a win or loss based off the overall score.

Long winded, I know.. but hey.. meanwhile, I've started the Elitist vs Dialanetics game.. and you will get updates AS THEY HAPPEN.

The Dialanetics were in town to take on the Elitists, and the game plan for the Elitists was simple (well, besides just plain "Score more points then the other team", of course). And that was to attempt to keep the star blockers for the Dialanetics from hurting them too badly, and hope to take advantage with their better jammers.

And it worked somewhat to perfection in the first period, as despite Lane getting three first period assists, they led the pack out on all three jams in the period.. unfortunately, with Lane and Lassiter back in the pack, neither Travis Roy nor Blade scored in either of the two jams, and Walker scored on a defensive jam for the Dialanetics.. to give them a 3-0 lead.

On the final jam, however, Roy and Blade had a plan.. they wouldn't allow Lassiter or Lane to pick on them singly.. they both jammed at the same time, and Lassiter and Lane couldn't set up a double team on either of them.. they both swung and missed, and the two Elitist jammers slipped past them, scoring two points each to give the Elitists a 4-3 lead after one period.

The 2nd Period was back and forth, with Delvecchio scoring a 3 point jam early, with Blade respoinding quickly on a jam of his own, but only able to get one point. Roy seemingly had an advantage, but he got two points, but didn't see Delvechio slip by, and the Dialanetics jammer scored four points on the defensive jam, and they looked to have an advantage at the end of the period, however, Roy made up for his mistakes with a four pointer of his own on a Elitist powerplay (Hultz off for tripping), and the Elitists lead after 2, 11-10. To make things better, Delvecchio was called for delay of game after protesting a decision late in the period and he will begin the 3rd period spending the first two minutes in the sin bin.

We're at halftime, and consecutive 3 pointers from Delvechhio have the Dialanetics come back just before the break, and take the lead.. 16-15 over the Elitists. Telling stat: The Elitist jammers have NOT come through for them today.. they have started 8 of the 11 jams so far.. but still trail.

The beginning of the 2nd half showed how low the Elitist coach's patience was with players who he thought were underperforming, despite decent stats in the game, as for Roy, and then KA Ton, were pulled off the track mid jam early in the period to get an earful from the coach. The sight of their main men being chewed out apparently fired up the Elitist defense, as they held strong, not allowing a single Dialanetic jammer to score on four jams in the fourth period.

However, they only got two points themselves (1 by Blade, and 1 by rarely used substitute Irv "Bum" Young) but that's enough to give the Elitists a slim lead heading into the final two periods, 17-16, and one has to think that Roy and KA Ton are going to be heading out on the track for the fifth period hoping to do well, if only to get their coach off their back.

Well, Roy came back with a quick two point jam, to open the period, and KA Ton seems to be doing better, so it looks like the coach's little pep talk did them some good.

However, misfortune struck the Elitists, when Blade was about to break free to start a jam, coming round a corner, he tried to pass on the inside of "freight train" Lane and got a hard (but legal) hip check that sent him way out of control, and speeding towards the Dialanetic bench, where they scattered as he came in.. crashing over the bench and rolling to a stop!

Fortunately, he wasn't hurt, just shaken up, but Blade had skated his last jam for the game, as the Doctors wanted to make sure he was ok. The two teams were not happy with each other (a couple Elitists thought that the Dialanetics should have cushioned the blow, and the Dialanetics were having nothing to do with THAT idea)

While the Elitists were recovering, Delvecchio scored a point for the Dialanetics, but that was all he could get, and late in the period, Young scored his 2nd and third points of the game, and entering the final twelve minutes, have a decent lead, 21-17, but it's still anyone's game.

6th Period: The turning point of this game would have seemed to come when the Elitist coach put Eugene Dixon on Freight Train Lane, and early in the period, Lane was rudely introduced face first in to the safety rail, and knocked cold.. (out for the rest of the game.)

But then, with 2:20 to play, the Dialanetics broke free, and went for broke, and it was the Elitists who were broke, as substitute jammer Bobby Powers scored a full jam, passing all 5 Elitist defenders to give the Dialanetics a 1 point lead.. 22-21!

Time was running out, and with just 1:00 to play when the pack led off, the Elitists weere in big rouble.. if they didn't get a jam off, the game was over, but the rules in roller derby state that once a jam has started, theperiod does not end until after the end of the jam, so if an Elitist jammer got free, they had a full minute to Jam.

And with :08 to play, the Elitists fans roared as Young broke through the pack! The jam was on! He looked behind him for help, but Roy was caught up at the back of the pack.. and Young was the Elitists only hope. The Jam Clock was ticking down, and they needed something.. with five seconds on the jam, KA Ton, at the front of the pack, hipchecked a Dialanetic har enough to send him into the infield, and with 2 seconds left in the jam, Young had scored one point!

When the final buzzer sounded, it was bedlam. We have a 22-22 tie..

And since there are no ties in Roller Derby,.. this will get settled the old fashioned way... in a three lap MATCH RACE. The winner of the Match Race will win his team one point, and thus, the game..

Both teams went deep into the huddle, and selected who would skate in the match race..

Match Race Jammers:

Elitists Ty "Golden Boy" Roy
Dialanetics: Cornell Walker


This one was a series of events that were all somewhat similar.. Walker was faster then Roy, so Roy had to skate a good race if he was going to win. Each time that Walker looked like he was going to get ahead, Roy would pull him back, and knocking him back with his superior track skills. Walker would draft for a moment, and then try to pass again.. almost getting ahead, and then getting knocked back again.
with a half lap to go, Walker dropped back a bit more, thinking to take a run at Roy down the stretch and pass him before the Elitist could stop him.

He turned on the afterburners.. and just as he caught up with Roy.. Roy stepped right into his path. Walker tried to change course, skidded out, and tumbled down off the track, and into the infield, and despite Walker being halfway across the course by this point, you have to do it on the track, and Ty Roy crossed the line and the Elitists had won the game, 23-22!
