Nice idea having Darwin as a Star.
Ag 4 Big Hand, Stunty, and Dodge is certainly "Star" material!
2+ Leap, 2+ dodges (with RR) Anywhere, 2+ Pickups Anywhere! Your opponent had better not let that ball hit the ground!

As for Goliath I don't know.. maybe bring back the Firebelly Toad (Yes I know toads aren't frogs but it sounds cool!) as a Star?

Going this route however makes your Spitting Frogs your primary ball carriers (not that that's a bad thing).

I've changed it so you can have 2 Frogzillas now that are 2 less positionals and most other Stunty teams have 2-3 Big Guys. What do you think about changing the name of the Frogzillas to Goliaths (The Largest Frogs in the world)and making Frogzilla a Fire Breathing Star Player.

Goliath Frog is fine and makes good sense (although nothing wrong with Giant Frog imo).

I'd think just Bombardier, Frenzy, Juggernaut, Mighty Blow, No Hands would be enough for a mean star..

But would anyone use a bomb on an Ag1 player?

What about:
5 5 3 8 Loner, Bombardier, Leap, Juggernaut, Mighty Blow, No Hands, Very Long Legs

Basically a more powerful and intelligent Goliath who can spit fireballs.

I can go with that, but I think it should keep the ST 6

Then he'll have to be mucho expensive, like 300K+ (which is ok, since he shouldn't be turning up all the time) because that'll let the team have 3 Big guys. Frogzilla is kind of like the Morg of the frog scene! Wink

These strange looking Frogs have four legs and a large sucker for a mouth where they can suck in vast amounts of air which can be used to propel anything large distances. Although they will occassionally swallow something or someone.

HaHa, this is an awesome idea. Slann are not yet represented in stunty & I love this!
I do think, however, that maybe the goliaths & spitters could be knocked down to ag2.
I'm also not sure about the bull frogs having general access, but w/ no hands it might be ok.
Awesome icons btw!

I disagree about reducing the spitters AG to 2 as they are the main ball handlers for the team

The Goliaths were originally AG 1 i think, but it made giving them Leap, VLL redundant, so at CB's suggestion I raised their AG to 3 allowing greater mobility to encourage leaping.

I was also a little hesitant to give the Bull Frogs G access but having a look at other Stunty Rosters I found there to be quite a few Positionals with G access and with the Bull Frogs 'No Hands' didn't think it to outrageous.

Can we have a sideview of the Goliath?!!! Razz (also you called it "goliaths" in the team thingy above, i guess it's not plural)

For consistency (I also think it sounds better) I think all the names should end in Frog.. e.g. Goliath Frog, Bull Frog, Spitting Frog, Dart Frog.

Uhm actually... When you used Zap back in the days, i think you used a "toad counter" to represent the victim. Wouldn't it make more sense to name them toads? Razz

This messes up the "bull frog" horns concept though.

Horny Toad? O_o

I'm not sure what version I had but i distinctly remember it turning your player into a Frog, I even got a frog counter with the game when I bought it. It was with the old polystyrine board. I think i've still got the counter somewhere.
