In a dark future of crowded metroplexes, jaded citizens, and technological excess, only one thing can slake the wanton demand for brutal entertainment: SLAUGHTERBALL!
Slaughterball simulates a violent future sport of genetically engineered super-athletes. Two to four teams clash in a remorseless steel pit, striving for maximum carnage and conquest. You are the coach of a team of six neohumans, from the swift and fragile razor to the towering and furious butcher. Guide them in your merciless quest for victory, and make your opponents eat steel!
The basic scrimmage rules are easy to learn but with enough strategic options to fuel endless hours of thrilling victories and agonizing defeats. Or try out the exhibition rules for more depth of play. Or commit to a full league season to catapult your team into the stratosphere of Slaughterball legend!
