Product Description

Blood Bowl is a game of Fantasy Football. The basic game features a match between a two teams drawn from a number of fantasy archetypes, playing a warped version of American Football.

The Blood Bowl boxed game contains two teams: Humans, an all-round team who are flexible enough to adapt to any style of play, or Orcs, who make up in brute force what they lack in finesse. The teams are represented by coloured plastic miniatures, and push-fit assembly is required before use. The game is expandable, and additional rules and teams will be made available through expansion sets and supplements.

Actions in the game are resolved through the use of dice. Regular six-sided dice are used to make tests in a number of cases, such as when a player attempts to pick up the ball, pass it, catch it or dodge past an enemy player. Custom dice are used when one player wishes to Block another, using graphics to represent each of the different (but all violent) potential outcomes.

The rules in this edition of Blood Bowl are almost identical to those found in the Competition Rules Pack, which was the culmination of several years of development of the Blood Bowl Living Rulebook. This has resulted in an incredibly well-honed game which sees regular competition play around the world. In fact each team takes turns moving, blocking and advancing the football down the field. The game comes with plastic miniatures.

This game is a part of the Blood Bowl Series.

Great game if you have a group to play it with
March 27, 2002

This is not a game designed for Joe to play Tim day after day. They will quickly tire of it. If you are lucky enough to have other people who play the game near you I would strongly recommend you give the game a shot. Just contact them, show up to a game, get a feeling for the game, and then make your decision.

If you already do some miniature gaming you will like this game and be more comfortable with the number of rules. If you do not do miniature gaming you will enjoy it as long as having lots of rules doesn't turn you away.

If you are in a league, or can form one, you will have a great time; learning, playing, and fighting. You can watch your team develop and then personalize them according to your tastes. There is a wide range of miniatures available.

There are many people who play this game, and you can often find them on the internet. This game is 5 stars if you have a group to play it with, and 3 stars if you do not. Overall it would be 4 stars for the hardcore gamer.

get the expansion, then play a series of games
January 30, 2002

Blood Bowl is a good game. It follows the theme and watching two football fantasy teams attempt to maim each other or even try to score is great fun.

The biggest problem with the game is that one bad roll can ruin the entire game. Many of my first games ended with flaring tempers due to unlucky rolls. That problem is solved through the expansion, Death Zone, which introduces league rules. Expanding the experience from one match to a series of matches using a team that grows in abilities solves the frustrations that might come about from losing a game when the odds were so heavily stacked against you.

And yet this isn't a five star game. Each game takes about two hours and it's solely a two-player game, and to feel its true glory you should plan on playing 5+ games (or even better, in a league of players every weekend). In the end, I just have to wonder if the time spent is worth it.
