Hi! I have created a fun game called Ramseyball. It is entertaining and played between teams of however many players you wish to have. The equipment includes the Ramseyball, which is a Wilson volleyball with "Ramseyball" written on duct tape that is slapped over the Wilson logo, flags, and time fracture wickets. The game itself is played on some sort of comparatively clear area, but trees, bushes, rocks, and cliffs are acceptable. Stadiums will work as well if you can rent one. The rules are simple. How you play the game is to be made up as you go along (feel free to change the rules as you play depending on the zone you are in-but be aware that you will be penalized for breaking the rules depending on the whim of your opponent), but you cannot play the game in the same way twice. Singing is also a critical factor, and any song is permissible, although anything from Huey Lewis and the News' "Sports" album is discouraged. Scoring is allowed, but it's kind of like "Who's Line is it anyway" in that the points don't matter or may not even be rational numbers. There is also a Ramseyball song that must be sung before every game. "Other kids' games are all such a bore! They've gotta have rules and they gotta keep score! Ramseyball is better by far! It's never the same! It's always bizarre! You don't need a team or a referee! You know that it's great, 'cause it's named after me!" (Backup-Singing "Rumma Tum Tums") Anyway, since this is the concepts forum, I feel like I should discuss uniforms. The Ramseyball uniforms are simple-teams only wear blindfold masks. These masks are not to be questioned as they are integral to the game. Since I know many of you are enterprising designers, I felt I would provide a sample template for the Ramseyball uniforms, as well as an example of one. This is the uniform of the Chagrin Falls RedYellows ------------------------------------------- Anyway, I have ideas for a league and I wondered what you would do with them. I feel teams could be located in a variety of places, and have suggested nicknames for some. Places include: San Francisco Los Angeles Chicago Detroit New York Boston Miami Atlanta Phoenix Toronto Cincinnati St. Louis Dallas Houston Seattle Denver Minneapolis Washington Schaumburg Madison Indianapolis Fayetteville Mississippi Piccaroons Richmond Rebels Aledo Vermont Frost Heaves "Wyoming" Hyannis Abbotsford Carbondale Olympia Torches Havana Akihabara Nogales Quincy Bowling Green Chickpea Junction Moose Jaw "Springfield" (traveling team) Bartonville Allentown Mexicali Virginia City Tallequah Beardstown Timbuktu Kandahar East St. Louis Roswell "Southwest Missouri" Churchill Peoria Please make all of these concepts. And enjoy. The best concept may get something. Or may not. Who knows. P.S. This is for a school project.
