What people are saying
Wizard Dodgeball is a 2 player, turn-based sports game. Each player drafts a team of wizards and then chooses spells based on their team’s stats. There are no tables to look up or spell lists to consult as all the information is in front of you on the cards. This leaves you all the time to focus on your strategy of when to rush for the balls, cast spells, and throw at your opponent's team.
Wizard Dodgeball also uses a simplified stat system for throwing and dodging balls and spells. On each wizard's card are colored squares representing the 2 dice you will roll (typically) for the various actions. These correspond to the custom dice with the following ranges:
Ladies, gentlemen, and ungendered species! The Interplanar Wizard Dodgeball League and Mind the Gap Studios would like to welcome you to the annual all-star game of WIZARD DODGEBALL!
The IWDL is made up of teams from all physical and ethereal planes, twenty-four in all. The all-star game is the yearly gathering of the best wizard dodgeballers from each of the teams in the league.
The IWDL rules trace their roots to the human version of dodgeball; the players that don’t dodge the ball are eliminated, a caught ball eliminates the thrower, the winner is the last team left on the court.
But, that’s just the beginning! Wizard Dodgeball allows teams to also cast performance enhancing (or inhibiting) spells. Boost the strength of your wizards! Freeze your opponent's wizards! Shield your wizards from spells and balls! Teleport wizards and balls! And watch out for fireballs!

Obviously there are some very famous wizards out there (aka copyrights) so we'll work together to get a name you like that's also legally viable.

Risks and challenges
This will be Mind the Gap Studio's first real attempt at creating a product. I'm working to mitigate the risks involved with making and fulfilling orders on an actual product by talking to those that have done this successfully. The art is finished, the game has been tested, and the components are decided on. That said, there is always the chance of unexpected delays such as shipping delays and printer malfunctions, but I will do my best to get Wizard Dodgeball to you in a timely manner at a level of quality that I would expect from any game that I would buy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
