    Ladies and Gentleman, Slavey and i have decided that on the day of Sils meet, at some point we will be holding the official Fanforce Handball Championship playoffs. Since many people (Including us) havent played in some time, we're gonna train (ie; Play handball) at my house on Tuesday, starting at about 11.


    Open to all and the winner gets...........um........ to........ Keep the tennis ball! Yeah thats it!, keep the tennis ball! maybe even 2 tennis balls!


    So! Come one, come all, it should be a blast! if u cant come Tuesday, thats cool, u can still enter the comp (Coz we'll be SO strict about that... :p) but u wont be as good as me n slavey!

    Lets get ready to RUMBLE!

    I won't be able to make it.

    I'll just have to rely on my natural skill and competetive nature to bring me home ;)

    How can you have a handball championship without me? Boy how I remember those freezing cold school mornings before class where you'd practically belt your hand off.

    I miss school.

    I dont think I will.

    Basically, my theory on going to FF meets:

    If we will be going out, then I will try to make it. If we are just going to hang around a persons place, then not really.

    Much as I like everyone, and enjoy the company, if I want to do nothing and be unproductive, then I'll just stay home.

    It'll be more than handball Dagsy, I'll bring over my Karaoke discs and sing a tune or two ;)


    Rules:


    *1st serve rule? (You get another chance if you get out on the first serve)
    *Double Dunce? (If lots of people play, Jacks and Dunce mean both squares make you go out)
    *1 Out? (One mistake and you go to dunce)
    *Ace serve rule? (If a king gets out, the new king must serve to the old king in Dunce, or else they get out)
    *Jacks rule? (Always serves to Jack?)
    *Cat? (Saying Cat when the ball goes very close to the line)
    *Lines (Re-serve or bounce on the line?)
    *Rolls ( First person to roll the ball is out)
    *Play ons? (Playing on when the ball is out of play. Does it apply to the person who touched it first? Or the last person it touched?)


    Ranking system? (1 on 1, winner playes winner of next game)
    or Time Limit and the last person in Kings wins?

    Bah, Slavey, your rules suck :p

    The only square to be protected from getting out is king. Queen Jack and dunce can all get out.

    King always serves to dunce.

    Lines mean replay point. Can arise anytime the ball hits a line, not just from the serve.

    The king gets two serves (like tennis)

    The receiver (dunce) cant get out off the first serve.

    A cat only refers to when an opponent draws you out to one side, then gives you a really tough shot on the other. It is an insult for a cowardly acts. It is nothing illegal.

    Rolls means replay. How can you tell what is an extremely low shot and what is a roll?

    Play ons? The last person to touch a ball that goes out of play, gets out.

    Interference if someone gets in your way.

    Challenge if you want to take on only one oppenent (eg if king challenges dunce)

    Round, if you want to keep the ball going around the court in one direction (eg clockwise) only.

    Break if you want to break the round or challenge...only the king or the person that starts the challenge/round can break. Becomes interesting if the king breaks someone elses challenge and then reissues it, so they have all the control

    Ahh so little has played since I played it as a lad.

    We are playing with rocks and not your wussy tennis balls right? That's how we played it in my day. Smashed Rock into ground. Ran inside to avoid Volcano or Dinosaur and then ran out again to play.

    Them's was the days.

    I was wondering what all those cave paintings were about - little guys waving their hands about and jumping around in circles.

    You're the one in red right?

    Well if no one minds, I'd rather have it 1 on 1.

    Witht the Cat rule, if you didn't say it, it meant you got it ;) Gotta love it hardcore.

    With rolls, its a majority vote by everyone else.

    I forgot about the Round the world and Challenge rules, I havent played with them since primary school :p



    So can we have names of people playing?
