PeaceBowl is a fast paced tactical game for 2-4 players ages 6 and up. Each player leads a team composed of 3-5 warriors.
Everything is allowed: Play HIT! cards to take down opponents, play PASS! cards to launch the ball at your receivers all over the gamefield, play RAGE! cards to break out of a fray.
As long as it remains in a boardgame, a good fight can be really amusing. Enjoy hitting and being hit, and have fun! Peace, Love,... Fight!
My rating is based on several plays using the Basic Game rules and playing with my 7-, 12- and 13-year-old sons (Oct. 2006) who like it a lot. What do we like? It's easy to learn but carries with it sufficient strategy; it plays fast, like American football; it's fun scoring points like American football but includes a mayhem factor that appeals to guys; and there seems to be a high replay value. Also, designer Angelo Porazzi is a terrific illustrator, and the names and illustrations on the cards are funny and fun to say out loud as you play them. Finally, the more players--up to four--the faster and crazier (and funner) the action gets. This game's a real winner.
PeaceBowl is a very fun game and it's also very quick to learn!!
It was a nice and unexpected surprise for me and my friend in Mantova at the 'Ludicamente' Convention, to find Angelo and his team and get involved in the 'PeaceBowl National Championship'...it was really very amusing!! ...expecially when I found myself among the four finalists...I couldn't believe it!! At last, after a very intense match I came fourth!! You could say that it mustn't have been so great coming fourth when the players are four...but I can assure you that I've enjoyed myself really very very much and I'm looking forward to entering the next 'Championship', seeing that I've heard that Angelo organizes one of them at every exhibition and convention!!
I've found great expecially two elements of the game: the possibility of playing with wooden markers since, in this way, warriors become much more visible, and that of mixing the warriors at disposal as you wish in order to create YOUR OWN team!!! Possible combinations are really innumerable and you can really invent your team!!!
It's not without reason if, according with the Boardgames Chart June 2004, PeaceaBowl is in Italy by now the second most appreciated game just after Puerto Rico!!!!!
Dynamic, enjoiable, involving and fast. Expecially played in 4.
Critics: components could be better, paper quality, players and role definitions (maybe miniatures?). If you think that it's a self distributed and developed product thesa are minors.
Plus: Author is experienced in gaming industry, playing wargames, beeing at conventions and playing footbool. And is very friendly. It couldn't be less than a five star game!
Plus: Angelone nazionale... ! :-)
