Macrocosm are closing in on the last four days of their Balls! Kickstarter and with that we’ve been taking a look at some of the uses for these monstrous creations on the tabletop. Well, the main use for them from the mind of Chris Nicholls who created them is for Kings of War…
The idea is that he’s going to be using them for his Goblin army in the game where…
“…Trolls are the Original balls, Mawbeasts are the Tiny Balls, The Troll Bruiser is The Monster Ball of Doom, The Giants are the Colossal Balls”
A pretty good use for them. As well as that however they are also developing their own kind of game for playing with these Balls on the tabletop.
A little game has come to their mind which will be available to backers of the campaign when they are ready. In essence the game is a little bit like bowels of pool.
You will have a series of smaller balls as well as the Monster Ball which is the only one that moves. You will be sending your Monster Ball smashing into the smaller ones in the hopes of hitting them into goals around an arena. This is all based on guess ranges however so you will probably end up smashing other Balls out of the way.
I think this sounds like it could be a lot of fun. I could imagine some Orc(k)s setting up a game like this in some ramshackle arena.
What do you think of these ideas?
