Dead Ball Cover Spotted
Amazon.com now boasts a cover for Dead Ball, the second in my trilogy of novels based on the Blood Bowl board game from Games Workshop. You can see a tiny copy it below and find a larger version by clicking on it.
Ironically, while Googling for “Matt Forbeck” and “Dead Ball,” I stumbled upon some pages that mention Fast Break, a basketball CCG I designed for WildStorm Productions back in the mid-’90s. One card in the set was “Dead Ball,” and another was “Matt Forbeck.” We put a lot of the design and production team in the game as players, which makes me one of the few game designers I know of to have my own sports trading card, complete with an artist’s rendition of me taking it hard to the hoop.
