What’s this? A Roller Derby board game?!
I actually stumbled across this whilst looking for derby shorts, but I’m totally intrigued… This is such a good idea for a game. The rules seem delightfully complex; the creators describe it as “an abstract strategy game based on the sport of roller derby”. Kinda like chess with three-walls and hip-checks. What’s not to love about that?!
Like all the best indie endeavours, JammerUp started life as a kickstarter project (yay people-power!) and appears to have been pretty successful, with some great reviews on Amazon. You can buy it online here ($30 without postage.)
