So I've like, toyed with the idea, and I have some thoughts on how to actually execute this in a thing I'm planning for next year. I haven't tested yet, but I think if you just... use multiple decks? It might work? No idea!!
VOLLEY BOYS is just a succinctly perfect little thing. It's a fantastic NDNM game that brings in all the best parts of sports anime and a whole lotta very clear love and spirit of the genre and some specific shows.
Do yourself a favor and get it.
World Champ Game Co is RIGHT. Once again hitting us with an absolutely fantastic game, the second edition of one of my favorite indie RPGs, and a brilliant homage to one of the most charming shows out there. Babes 2e does it all and does it well, so check it out!
Glad to hear you're stoked!
Physicals are still in production, but we're at the tail end of the estimated timeline so they should be shipping to me within the next week or so (I HOPE!)
Once they ship, it'll be ~2-3 weeks before they show up on my doorstep
They're actually intended to be printed on one 8.5x11 page and folded into a small pamphlet! They were specifically designed for this format, but if there's enough demand (and time), I'm not opposed to scrapping something up.
1 & 2 are both mentioned in the rules- the game's over when either all your friends are out of energy, when you run out of energy, or whenever you want to stop playing. When a Friend runs out of energy, you remove them from the game and shuffle their cards into the other stacks.
For 3, it's an effect thing, an emotional whosawhatsit. If you draw the marked card again, just mark it more.
Not missing anything! It's an extremely rules-light game, and the rules that exist are all the rules there are. It's made to let you take what's there and run with it!
A quick edit to clarify- the game as written assumes you know a bit of "inside baseball". Which is to say, it assumes you already know and play some TTRPGs and are down to play something small & dumb
Hey, thank you!
It's definitely a janky game, that doesn't work super perfectly to say the least lol. What you experienced is pretty much exactly as intended, and how it worked in my playtests
Glad to hear you enjoyed it overall, and thanks for writing about it here! :)
