« Good evening sports fans and welcome to the Blood Bowl for tonight’s contest. You join a capacity crowd, packed with members of every race from across the known world, all howling like banshees in anticipation of tonight’s game. Could you please, Jim, old boy, give us a quick recap on the rules for those who’ve just joined us?
Sure thing, Bob! As you know, Blood Bowl is an epic conflict between two teams of heavily-armoured and quite insane warriors. Players pass, throw or run with the ball, attempting to get it to the other end of the pitch, the End Zone. Of course, the other team must try and stop them, and recover the ball for their side. If a team gets the ball over the line into the opponent’s End Zone it’s called a touchdown; the team that scores the most touchdowns by the end of the match wins the game, and are declared Blood Bowl Champions! »
THE ORIGINS
The unlikely forefather of american football and inspired by the fantasy universe of Warhammer, Blood Bowl is an ultraviolent team sports. Assemble a team of Orcs, Elves, Dwarfs and many other fantasy creatures and enter the bloodiest arena ever! Originally created by Jervis Johnson and published for the first time by Games Workshop in 1987. This board game, based on the Warhammer world, encountered massive success in the 80’s and the 90’s and has legions of loyal fans to this day.
GAME OVERVIEW
Part strategy game and part sports simulation, Blood Bowl will put to the test the nerves of the best tacticians. The basic principles of the game are extremely simple: two teams, one ball. The team reaching the opponent’s end-zone with the ball scores a “touchdown”, by any means necessary. No holds barred, you may trample or cripple an opposition player while the referee conveniently looks the other way.
With a wide variety of races to appeal to every type of player and many more tactical options available, Blood Bowl has become a reference in terms of tactics and strategy, and victory requires a real flair for the game and nerves of steel. The ever present humour, the use of weapons and a large selection of irregularities is what sets Blood Bowl apart from the more classical sports simulations, much to the delight of the players.
