It's definitely a Maritimes thang. I've been forced to play it by relatives in Dalhousie, and by friends in Digby. Unfortunately, I've managed to erase those painful memories, so I couldn't tell you how it was actually played although I remember having the impression that the rules SEEMED to be made up as we went along. That being said, the Digby version and the Dalhousie version seemed identical.
Some local guy actually wrote a book with the official rules. I didn't buy it cause its a waste of fifteen bucks. Its not even a maritimes game really more for just Cape Breton. I go to school on the mainland (ha) and haven't met anyone yet who can play. What's really funny is when they hold the WORLD championship, in Sydney NS, at my old High School's gym.
The JLA pales so far in comparison to B:TAS and Superman it's not even funny. Dini should have been put in charge of the show instead of Timm. The character designs are awful. The writing (for the most part) is pedestrian.
