It's Blood Bowl. What's not to like. Haven't tried the fancy "Blitz" rules - just playing the Classic game.

If you're a fan of the "real" Blood Bowl, but can't paint a figure to save your life (like me) or have no friends (like me) or don't have time to set up the table all the time (like me) or just want to sit down and have a quick nostalgic game of horribly wonderful how-can-the-dice-always-come-up-to-my-disadvantage-at-the-most-crucial-moment-in-a-drive (like me) - don't miss out.

Single player is surprisingly enjoyable and competitive - and there's hot-seat multiplayer, so you can deal out some Norse-style smash-mouth Blood Bowl on the big screen in the living room too.

This is Mario Kart for people who never had a Nintendo. Gratuitous swearing, cursing, beer-drinking and Pantera-listening goes very well with this game.

I started the North American TTS League and even after giving up being the commissioner I still cast games of Blood Bowl from them. This is a true to life adaptation of the Blood Bowl board game and will not disappoint you fans out there.

However for folks that don't know anything about the game, there is a LARGE learning curve that even single player still doesn't teach you correctly.

Here's the most recent game from the NATTS league and see for yourself:

Once you get past the dregs of online matchmaking and join one of the four or five very active communities with organised tourneys and leagues, blood bowl online becomes a very enjoyable experience.
This is the edition that has everything and I heartily recommend it.

If you do play it, I recommend reading the rulebook (just google blood bowl rulebook). Although the game generally works very well, it's much more enjoyable when you sit yourself down to the actual rules. It's a little bit of work, but these rules were honed through years of playtesting and active experience and what has come out makes sure that every game is exciting, unpredictable and challenging. Above all it's a game that teaches one to learn to deal with the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ situations you can be put in or marvel at the gutsy gambles that have paid off.

Not recommended for people that dislike chance as a whole; you can minimize the risk to a great amount and the winner of league is generally the better player, but the winner of a match is sometimes decided by the dice gods.

My very first game my most expensive player was hit and killed by a rock thrown by the audience; before I had even made a single decision. If that kind of thing sounds like fun, this game might be for you.

I HATE THIS GAME!!!!! why you might ask? its because I stink at dice games. I have been cursed by the gaming gods so that I only can throw bad rolls of the dice. This is why I HATE this game because it´s so funny to play and is well made, but I keep getting bad rolls so I keep screaming in my head, "WHY THE HELL DO I KEEP COMMING BACK TOO THIS GAME!?!?!?"
I keep coming back because the teams are interesting, the gameplay and meckanic is supreme and it is easy to learn. But if you have a short fuse when it comes to dice games, then maybe you should look somewhere else (it is to late for me). for when you start playing, you keep coming back for more punishment and hopes for glory.

I have never played Tabletop Bloodbowl so I will not compare the two.

Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition takes American Football, throws the rulebook out the window and adds in the Warhammer universe. All while your fate is decided with the roll of the dice..

This is like the ultimate luck simulator. Sometimes ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ plays work... sometimes they don't and you have the worst match in your life.

This is a good game to play with friends or in a small community. Public leagues are ok, but I feel you can have more fun with the first.

I throughly recommend this game.
8/10

Blood Bowl is a game that exists. You can play this video game, if you wish. In this video game, you command a bloodthirsty team of muscular men or busty women or weird monster things or a combination of all three and have a friendly toss-about of the old pigskin with another team. Oh sure, occasionally someone's arm breaks, or their eyes are gouged out, and in certain circumstances a player dies, but these are all minor details to be overlooked.

This is a turn based take on American Football with fantasy teams and themes, accompanied by an ungodly amount of violence, cursing and Big Moot sandwiches.

I'm not sure what more to say. It's an incredibly fun game solo and it's an incredibly fun game with friends, and a very nice take on the tabletop original game, bringing more content to a more accessible medium of gaming. Games also don't take nearly as long and the game does all of the tedious dice rolling for you. No, the game doesn't hate you, the dice does. No, it's not rigged. No, you can't roll the dice yourself. No, it's not the game's fault that your wood elf failed his dodge and is now laying on the ground with his spine shattered in several places. It's your fault. You ♥♥♥♥ed up. Get good. Get Blood Bowl!

..

God, that was awful. 10/10 game though.

It's bloodbowl. There is no substitute. It's a fantasy warhammer sports football game. I've been playing this game since the 90s (boardgame) and if you have not played it you are missing out.

Pros
It's bloodbowl like the board game and easier to get a game with a real person

Cons
It can be RTS, but why bother
snow based football pitches make it hard to see - chat is invisible on snow
actions by the opposing side knock you out of the chat box
Lady luck sometimes does not favour me :o( Boo Hoo

Probably the greatest sport in history. A wealth of teams and tactics. Online leagues. Lots of single player content. Cups, tournaments, modes.

I am happy to recommend this. Especially as it is currently on sale for £8.

Get a taste before the Bloodbowl 2 comes out.

This is a very entertaining game that has a long term game playability. Unlike many games where you get to the end and your at a loss on what to do next. Blood Bowl lets you move to multi player and begin playing others. It has a good system for multiplayer to learn more advanced game theory beyond what the AI can teach you. It also gives you a chance to begin play in leagues and develop longer term and more developed teams. I love this game and expect to for a long time.

What i dont get is theres a "new" Madden or FIFA each year but if you like some clobbering on top of your managing this is pretty much the only option except for some crappy Speedball remake.

And its a good option, however this is no normal sports game in a sense but a boardgame and so....

a) The success or failure of every action a player performs is determined by a dice roll which probably (maybe possibly) isnt weighted against you but sure as hell feels like it is.
b) Starting out you lack all the hard counters which could soften the impact of yet another failed roll - the opposition doesnt
c) The tutorial isnt that helpful so you lack info on how to soften the impact of yet another failed roll or how to prevent them

In conclusion a+b+c= Your ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ boiling and the neighbors calling the police to detain the gibbering screeching loon next door because someone failed to pick up a ball three times and then died walking a step too much all the while the opposition who is PROBABLY ♥♥♥♥ING GOD DAMN PRANCY ELVES HURT THEM HURT THEM HURT THEM KILL KILL KILL MURDER MAIM ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ GOD DAMN SHUT UP ♥♥♥♥ YOUR RNG ♥♥♥♥ ALT+F4

Yet it is still fun somehow (must be a roguelike thing), butthe longer you play and actually win stuff the more it turns out the manager part isnt that indepth.

Hiring and firing players (no possibility to mix races, also they pretty much are all the same and theres a set limit on types which can be deployed - no all-bruiser teams for example), purchasing some temporary boosters or other stuff which is in essence a chance at a reroll, thats about it. Players can level up and you can select skills or stat boosts - theres actually somewhat many but level ups are slow and a few skills are absolutely essential for the role a player is supposed to fill so youll prolly always wanna chose those.

Theres a "Blitz" mode which has some more stuff along the same lines along with buying equipment which is expensive, temporary and on top of that provides benefits only at a random chance around 20% and in classic mode the player would gain the visual upgrade on a level up (without the bonus, not sure). Also you have to chose a sponsor and if you dont fullfill certain criteria they take all your money at the end of a season because thats how this works (?!?). Play classic.

Theres "live" commentary which inevitably gets old after a while.

Still a very fun game despite or more likely because of the random element..oh heh RNG dicked you over again. Roll 1D6 vs Tantrum or break 1D6 objects in a one square radius.

Outstanding port over from the board game to PC. I remember many years ago being in a league with an undead team with the board game. What joy i had painlessly painting my figures so they looked ubah against other teams. Then the beauty of technology comes along and i get to play Blood Bowl on my computer oh what joy!! and i must say how bloody cool it is too. Love the commentators in the game Jim the Vampire and Bob the Ogre they really bring a fun element to the game even though i do wish they recorded more voiceovers as they can get a bit repetative which does get annoying.. Other annoying thing is the Ref he does like to send players off the field even with a bribe.. Why?? i only stood on his head!! :P

All in all if you love the fantasty element and warhammer style universe and want to enjoy it in a sport styled enviroment then this game is for you!!! you dont really need to know anything about american football or rubgy just remember the following:- Kick off, kick the crap out of the oposing team.. pass the ball if you want to or just get it to the oponents end zone to score.. i myself enjoy the fighting and seeing how many kills my Murdering Hillbilly Team can do in a course of a match :P

Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition

Many people will tell you that Blood Bowl is unfair. Other people will tell you the RNG is rigged. Yet other people will defend it with their lives. Blood Bowl is just not a game that respects you, especially if you go out there and try to win by murder. It will spank you, waterboard you and then anally invade you with spiked baseballbat that has glasshards glued on for good measure.

I have had my trial by fire on the boardgame and got butchered by experienced players. It was enough to not want to play anymore, mostly because of the discussions with the rulebook in hand. Yet, I was also constantly drawn back to it until I got absorbed by Epic and built myself a nice Eldar army.
But then I got the 360 version and was hit over the head with a game that applies the rulebook to a fault. No more sneaking stuff past my opponent, no more obfuscating the rules with 'you're interpreting the rules wrong, muppet!'. Instead, I got steamrolled over and over again, until I wised up and started to take the full time allowance on a turn, always trying to get at double dice on every action that needs them. I begun to make progress, but the on-line was so horrid I turned away from the game.

Today, I decided to buy the Chaos Edition for PC on a whim. Fact is that I'm not that into GW-games anymore. I sold off my hobby some time ago, mostly because I outgrew the demographic. Whenever I walk into the GW-store, I feel like a child-molester for one and inviting a kid over to play a game of Epic just has too many negative connotations to it.
Getting back in the saddle was easier than I thought, but much of that is in selecting the team that supports my play-style instead of a team that looks bad-♥♥♥ but is a dog to manage.

Blood Bowl looks very pretty to my eyes. Cyanide did not go for flashy imagery but instead kept it simple and to the point. Game music is likewise utilized and during the matches there is a duo-presentation by two dudes who sadly will have run out of new things to say after you've played a few matches.

I have not yet played with the Blitz rules, opting to play Classic-rules (Read GW-authentic) instead. The Classic-rules play by the boardgame rules and follows that ruleset to the letter, which results in nailbiting matches, as long as you play on Hard. I don't say this to be leet. On Easy, you'll win. On Medium, the AI will anally probe you. On hard, the AI gets slammed by the rules as hard as you are. How that can be, I don't know. The game was like this on the 360 too.

Winning thus depends on team-choice and choosing a team should be a factor of your playstyle. For me personally that meant a choice between the Dark Elves or the Amazons. After having tried a few games with the Dark Elves I noticed that I couldn't pull off miracle plays with them. I like to dodge and play a passing game and the Dark Elves are the proverbial team for that. (Still the best DLC I bought on the 360.)
I started over, going for the Amazons this time, who all have Dodge as a natural skill. At first I felt it was hopeless, but slowly I was getting the results. After being butchered a few times, I got a handle on the Amazons and started to fight the AI to a stand-still. Some time later I managed to win a match with a miracle play, passing the ball from the midfield-line to a Catcher in the end-zone.

Blood Bowl is not an easy game. One of the first things a new player should learn is that tackle-zones are the backbone of Blood Bowl. Each pawn on the field has a tackle-zone, consisting of 8 squares around that pawn. Pawns that have overlapping tackle-zone empower eachother, making offence and defence easier. For offence, blocking an enemy pawn is a snap if it has base to base contact with other pawns that are friendly to you. For defence, understanding that tackle-zones are only good for enemy pawns entering it is key.

As you play matches, your players will level up, provided they did something that gives them points. There are many ways a player can get EXP and not all of them are obvious. Blood Bowl does however apply them according to the official boardgame rules (if you play Classic, which I recommend.) and does so rigidly. Should you ever question the game's judgement, crosscheck the decision with the ruleset, which is included in the game. I have not been able to fault it sofar.
Leveling your players up will allow you to give your players extra skills. There are loads of skills, but not all of them will suit your players or your style. Take the time to read the description of skills. But most of them are obvious. The first extra skill a Catcher should get is Sure Hands. A Runner should get Sure Feet quickly. A Blitzer should keep an eye out for Break-Tackle.

Blood Bowl comes with a hefty Single Player experience. First there is the tutorial. This is scripted as heck and it won't allow you to experiment. But for new players it does open the game a little, though it won't go into specifics. Therefore it's better to play a few exhibition matches after you've done the tutorial.
The Exhibition matches are perfect for experimenting, because they don't have a persistent effect on your team. Work on your starting set-up and watch the AI closely. Here you get the goods on how teams are played, which is unvaluable information for the other game-modes. Many tactics the AI employs are also good to use by you.
Begin a Campaign is a set mode where you buy the team of your choice (or field one of your existing teams) and try to reach the top of the different leagues and tournies.
Begin a Competion is like the Campaign, but now you set it up to your specifications before you start play.
Story Mode is very different as you're free-agent coach who coaches teams that need your expertise. This time, the focus is on you and your managerial skills. And you'll be tested. Hard.
World Cup is like the wolfmother of Blood Bowl. Hear you must lead your team to greatness entering nothing but tournaments and your goal is to eventually qualify for the ultimate event.
All these modes can't be completed in a single evening. These modes are all in depth and content rich and successfully completing them will take your dedication and test your motivation.

Don't go into this game believing that you'll trash it on your first match. Learn from the AI, see how it handles ball-possession and see how it defends. A wise man once said that no one ever learned something from winning and nowhere is this more true than in Blood Bowl.

-Do safest actions first.
-Do less safe actions second.
-Do dangerous actions last.
-Always guard your ballcarrier.
-Buy re-rolls pre-game over stuff like Bribes and Bloodweiser Babes.
-Cheerleaders and Coaches are the most helpful during kick-offs. Look for other things to buy first.
-Use fouls and bribes to disable enemy keyplayers, like Catchers, Throwers and Runners. Don't waste them on rank and file.
-Try to use all your re-rolls in a half, they get replenished at half-time. Re-rolls are instrumental to your play, so don't let them go to waste, use them as needed and don't be frugal with them thinking that you'll get a better chance to use them later.

I love digital Blood Bowl, but the love took a wile to take hold. Blood Bowl rewards the patient, thinking player and it really opens up to those that stick with it and gain skill. Once you get past the disappointment of playing a game that won't let you win and start to recognize what works and what doesn't, Blood Bowl is one of the more rewarding games to play.

For those that want to always win and who want to be leet 24/7, Blood Bowl has little to offer.
