12th April - Dreadball vs The Wife

It's been a while but we decided to dust off Dreadball and start up a family league of that as well as our Frostgrave campaign. So far only The Wife (Brokkrs) and I (Veer-myn) have begun but hopefully The Daughters can fit a game in this week around school and such. I also got another Infinity game in against The Youngest which you can read here, and I'm hoping The Eldest and I can fit another one in this week at some stage.

Hey there sport's fans and welcome to the first game of the season, pitting the home team The Labrats vs the B Brokkrs. There's the launch and we're off. Shove slams into Protor knocking him down over the waiting back of Joe and he's out looks like it'll be a few rushes before he returns. Oh the fans are going wild, they love this stuff. Weaver grabs the ball and sends a pass flying between the Brokkr players and.... it's caught by Joe absolutely flawless, something you don't often see with these Veer-myn players and he's heading down the pitch to the three point strike zone, but oooh yep that's more in line with what you'd expect it's off the rim and scattering down deep in Brokkr territory. 









Brimir enters the pitch scooping the ball with ease and motor's down the pitch..... well relatively quickly anyway. Brute charges into Push knocking the rat down and he's off, looks like a busted buckle so we'll be seeing him back soon. Stone rolls over Shove knocking the Veer-myn guard back a little. Blainn sprints ahead, the pass is good and the Brokkr's have penetrated the Veer-myn half.
Weaver moves up to Blainn and it look's like... oh yes he's got the ball. Joe is heading back up the pitch hoping for another attempt. Dodger heads up putting pressure on the now empty handed Brokkr. The pass is looking good... oh he's got it but that ball almost got away from Joe there. He steadies himself and yep he's headed back to that strike zone, he throws..... Bang! off the the rim again it's just not his day today.
Brute pushes Dodger back, Brimir sprints backfield towards the spilled ball. Stone slams Shove again but the rat finds some leverage and yep that's another Brokkr down and out, that Veer-myn is on fire today. Stubb takes the pitch giving the Brokkr's another pair of hands for the ball. Brute continues his assault on Dodger..... Ooooh!! That's going to hurt, wait, wait, yes! That's one dead rat, absolutely brutal play, the crowds on it's feet.

Shove comes across the pitch too late to save Dodger but the Brokkr braced and is only knocked back a couple of paces. Pusher streams back onto the pitch and hits Brute from behind and he's out... but he'll be back soon enough. Despite the added pressure from Brimir the ball just seemed to float into Joe's hands there, and he's going back for a third attempt....... It's in!! Hear that roar from the home crowd, three points for The Labrats!

Dribble sprints to pick up the freshly launched ball, but oh! The pressure has got the the diminutive player and he's fumbled the pick up!
The Labrats aren't going to let this opportunity go, Scrounger heads for the ball and it's shaky but yes, yes he's got it. Dasher is on the field now bringing the Veer-myn back to the full six players on the field. There seems to be some conferring in the Veer-myn coaching box and yes it looks like there's a new play on the board, let's see how this goes. Shove slams into Blainn knocking the Brokkr and he's off but it looks like just an equipment change, he'll be back. Scrounger's heading to the one point strike zone..... he's loading the ball into his tail!?! It's in!! Oh my god the crowd is going wild over this. Four points to the rats!!
Dribble is smacked in the back of the head by the launching ball sending the unfortunate players head, he's off to the bench and I bet he's seeing some flying Teraton's in his vision right now, haha! Brimir begins a slow rush up the pitch as Protor and Stone return to the field. Stubb moves up and collects the ball giving the B Brokkrs possession again!
Dasher moves up, yep another easily stripped ball for The Labrats. Joe again turns to receive and yes it looks like that hastily made play is coming into action as Dasher takes direction and heads up the pitch, it's an absolutely beauty of a pass people dead on and yes! Joe has the ball, and is heading back to his favourite strike zone! He throws the ball and..... it's in!! The Labrats win by a landslide, after the temporary shocked silence the crowd is on their feet again, just listen to them roar!!

It was great game, I'm quite happy we decided to pull it out. Both of us had the rules down again by the end of our first rushes. Hopefully the girls get right back into it as well and we can get a decent league happening.
