unpopular opinion: star player special rules should be ignored
grandma wendy loves to write some wacky rules. I think the star player 'once per game' special rules should all be ignored. it also allows us to keep some of the old favorites...just need a 'PA' for them

Hopefully Granny Wendy will release a Second edition style Star Payers book or Spike.

I quite like some of the special rules.... e.g. Eldrils

They're only once a game ;P

i agree with you, they're such a pain, extra complications for nothing in terms of gameplay

Thats the most annoying thing since Grandma tried to write bb rules again: text, text, text, for very little insignificant things.
Posted by Apus on 2021-02-20 18:01:21
I agree - the special skills just make the game more complex.
Posted by Wozzaa on 2021-02-20 22:26:32
I think there is a bit of hyperbole going on here.

How many stars actually play?

If there are stars, there is usually only one, maybe two.

On TT I would just have a coin per star. Heads means I haven't used the ability tails means I have.
Posted by Bloodfeast on 2021-02-20 23:24:29
I think it is exactly that what makes a star. Othervise it is just a bunch of skills stacked on a player but with a background. Every team out there has atleast 11 of them. But, more stars pls :)

Excuse me mates, what rules are you talking about?
Posted by mekutata on 2021-02-21 15:14:24
@SanKuKai, Star Players will come with new unique special skills (f.i. Black Gobbo enables 2 fouls per turn).
Posted by SanKuKai on 2021-02-21 20:41:47
oh ok thx
Posted by mekutata on 2021-02-21 20:59:24
And I like the idea. But I also liked the general idea of a separate Passing skill.
Posted by MrCushtie on 2021-02-22 05:02:37
I agree. The Star Player rules should be available every turn they're on the pitch. Much simpler
