Curse of The Dead Gods is an extremely addicting roguelike that features deeply rewarding and exciting combat mechanics.
Dreadball has extremely straight-forward mechanics, which allows for very fast-paced play. The sequencing of player actions can get very tactical, which can slow down the games during the first few plays, but quickly speeds up when you learn the team. The flexibility in team selection for the 6 payers on the pitch is surprisingly varied for the limited player types, and gives a huge amount of replayability, with only the 2 included teams. The multiplayer option, large number of teams, and the league rules included in the rulebook along with the quality components make the core set incredible value.
