Well we gotta get these final details sorted in the rule book mate  Smiley. There're some rules, like Generals calling for a ball count, that I hadn't seen 'til now.   Cheesy

agreed. 

   I ran out of room on the post where I put the bulk of the rules.  I wish there was a way to attach a word document on the board, but there isn't.  I can attach a .txt file but that would have no pretty formatting at all.  I may have to post in on my personal Sport Slinging website and then link to it.  I could also start a new thread I suppose and just make two simultaneous posts that have ALL the rules.  Maybe I'll do that.

Well, if you don't mind the extra typing, that'd be good, or if you couldn't be bothered, and are only doing it because I asked, you can email it to me to read and try and spot any possible bugs.

Convert it to HTML... I can do that using Dreamweaver if you want me to. Then host it on a website.
I can also do that.

I like the direction this is going.  But... Man I want a game with a little more fire... with no more gear required than a sling a few balls and some ground to play on.  The sling is simple, the sport should be too, just make it like dodgeball and sling until everyone gets out.   Too many targets and rules and it'll never catch on.  Think of Ultimate frisbee... the genius of that game is that there's nothing to it but effort and skill.  A sling sport should be the same...  just a bunch of slingers who love slinging and don't mind getting popped because they get to pop people, and the only people getting any real popping done are the ones who have put some effort into their skill level and have been slinging for a while.  But it stills leaves rooms for beginners and people walking by that have never seen a sling.  Plus playing till everyone is out will make the games fast like speed chess and we'll basically more slinging in less time.  I mean we could play the game I'm describing here...right now... if we weren't all separated by hundreds of miles.

I disagree.  I think that Funda Ball will catch on.. Eventually...  One day I shall look down from Heaven and say, "HA!" while I watch the NFBL!  LOL..

What you're talking about is a Sling version of Dodgeball.  Also sounds like tons of fun!

I agree to a point. You can't conceivably have an eye knocked out of its socket or become concussed in a dodgeball game, which is why they can get away with jock shorts and tanktops. Safety should be held to a very high standard in any game involving slings. Cups mandatory (male and female, I wouldn't wish a groin hit from a sling on anyone), some form of joint protection, head protection, the whole nine.

There are multiple avenues for this game to develop, and as with any sport you can have different leagues playing slightly different versions of the core game: full contact, points-based, target-based, king of the hill, elimination, ricochets-count, etc. etc.

I have dozens of slings so I get a few friends together and we all go to the tennis court and play dodgeball in the caged tennis court. Loads of fun, especially since we don't have to go far to retrieve the balls

Dodgeball would be a great idea because everyone knows how to play (generally) that way it would be a good way to start getting slinging popular. just take the base idea of dodgeball, i.e balls in the middle, although one problem would be the power, have you guys heard of archery tag? it gives a 20ft break between each side, i think that might be a good idea, then have each team have a line of balls were only they can grab them, and by the way no one can go in the 20ft area, and then just no standardized style, just standardized ammo.  Smiley

also what i'm thinking of for ammo is at home depot, they have this three inch thick foam, its made for padding under carpets but its very soft and pretty hefty so i think that it might work for some small foam balls for slingball, that might be a cool name for dodgeball and slings combined.  Grin

I have been on the lookout  to try different suitable ammo,  I haven't  been able to find one in stores unfortunately, but I would like to the MINI nerf footballs  with the tails (nerf pocket vortex). I might have  to buy em online.  Those in my mind should give the same flight as the " kresto "also there are professional  paintball  team jerseys that have pads in them and such, not much but enough, and helmets, I was llooking  at  hockey  helmets  with  full  face  visors  would do the trick.

I haven't  had  an opportunity  to use them, but I personally  think that  it would  be the best ammo for this game. What is your experience with  the nerf  footballs?

i had a friend that had one at his house during last summer so every time i was there we would do sling catch, and it doesn't fly super fast so it wont hurt to badly, and you can dodge it.  Smiley
