Excellent and tense game, which somehow manages to make the rule that your turn *ends* whenever you fail at something, actually work.

THE best game I have. Blood Bowl is back up to speed thanks to new developments and supporting material.

Only drawback is the price of the mini's.

Blood bowl is one of my favorite games. I love gaining experience after the game, that is assuming your players survied the game. You can then reuse your team for the next game.

In my eyes, this is probably the best Games Workshop game ever. It has a deep level of strategy that you don't see until you actually play it. Though the figures available for it suck, the game itself is awesome. Definitely worth buying.

The most intense game. You really need to keep your concentration. Every move you make is important. As soon as you fail a single roll your turn is over. This mechanic makes for really tense turns where the game may change in the blink of an eye. This definetly doesn't mean that the game is totally random, you just have to set your priorities straight and make some tough decisions. My all time favourite game. One off games are good but this game really excells in tournament/league play with friends where you really can get into grudge matches and such. One of the best parts is the diversity of the teams and that they have managed to make the teams really well balanced. You also don't require very many models to play.

Good combination of fantasy and football. Rules are failry simple, but the game requires lots of strategy to win (luck helps too). When compared to the 2nd ed, "Turnover" rules create more risk and keeps the game flowing. Obviously, one of my all time favorites. If I have one complaint, the cost of the minis (and time needed to paint them all) limits the team(s) that you can play and thus, limits variety.

With teams such as The Cothique Sea Stallions (HE), The Broken Axe Vandals (GOB), The Mad Dog Pass Red Socks(Orc), The Black Forge Blackguards (Ch Dw), Algemeine Mensch (Hu), The Zhufbar Miners Welfare (D) and others, this is my favourite Games Workshop game. I like the Nintendo DS version' but not the PC one- matter of personal taste.

I've played Blood Bowl since its 2nd edition and have always enjoyed it, a lot, especially after the LRB -release. The gameplay is fast and furious, just like the theme - violent football on a pitch. However there's enough depthness in the game mechanics. E.g. you can play different teams, each having different strenghts and weaknesses. Then again you can have different strategies for each opponent. In addition there's random factors in gameplay, which increase the fun factor and makes you to want 'that second shot'. You should try several teams before you can really master BB.

For one-shot games I'd rate BB a 9, but its the league game, where Blood Bowl really shines. You start with a rookie team, which starts to develop game after game. You get experience for players, collect winnings, buy new players and finally receive new skills for the most experienced players. Its the continuity that really hooks you up to the game. Team members develop into star players and individuals, but there's always a danger of injuries and deaths, which keeps your on alert. Blood Bowl is the only game, in which I can get totally angry at one moment and at the second moment be cheerful. Blood Bowl doesn't leave you cold, that's for sure!

The perfect cocktail of rugby, fun and crazy features. Shines when played in a competition, the "plain" one on one is a little bit shallow perhaps but still quite a lot better than the dicefest known as BattleBall.

I love this game! It's a fast-paced, funny and fun parody of American football. And I don't even like football. (However, I've noticed that since playing Blood Bowl, I actually understand football better, and (dare I say it) even now find it INTERESTING to watch. I don't go out of my way to watch football, but now when it's on, I'll watch.)

But Blood Bowl is better.

The gameplay is good, and the various teams have different strengths and weaknesses, rather than just playing with identical, vanilla teams.

It's a lot of fun; I highly recommend it.

If you are either a fan of sports OR a fan of medieval-style fantasy, you really should check this out. If you're a fan of both, you CANNOT pass this up. At its heart a very fun game, Blood Bowl is a perfect 10. It has a very clever system which leaves little room for ambiguity, works excellently and does not drag. It creates an incredible feeling of immersion, not the least because of the top-notch quality of its material and its miniatures. And, most importantly -- it allows for a growing hobby, extending the game to any number of aficionados and enabling one's playing skills to grow AS WELL as one's fictional team skills. Goes way beyond a mere game -- it can carve a hobby all its own in your leisure time.

My favorite game. No other game captures the same tactical wargame feel that this does, yet makes it so very simple to play, entertaining, full of variety, and has a sports tie in which just really takes the cake. I am reviled for liking this game by some, but it is, and forever will be, my favorite game. Probably...

American Football with fantasy background.
Great game with a wide range of stragies depending on the team you play.
What a pity, it´s only a 2 - person game. There are special season and tournament rules (improvement of your teams after a match and so on....), so more than 2 players can (in different matches) enjoy this great game.

Awesome game! I absolutely love Blood Bowl. Again, it is a dice game, but their are ways to negate that. I just barely got into this game and I am so excited to play more. The league aspect of the game is really where it shines. I like the ability to "level up" my players. The personality of each team member really starts to come out as you play more and more with the same team. "I know not to use this guy to try and dodge because he can never do it." Even though the 'characters' aren't real, of course, it still seems that each player really does take on some kind of personality. I really, really like this game. Solid 10!

Everything is present (strategy, chance, evolution of the players through a season), and the dynamics of the game is much better than with 2nd edition. Definitely a must have for those who like Football and tactics

Ranks right behind Space Hulk as games workshop's best stuff. Love all the different teams and the many playing styles you can choose from. Like Space Hulk there is a lot of strategy in this but also a lot of dice rolling. Also like Space Hulk it can get very tense. This was a real improvement over the 2nd edition, the turnover rule was a brilliant addition that really opened up the strategy portion of the game. You really have to weigh the risk of your move cause if you fail, it's the other guys turn. Plus the minis with this one were great.
Halftime...Bring on the Ork cheerleaders.....OOOOHHHHH!!! Maybe not.

I love this game, hence the 10. I don't love what GW did with their C&D. However I am rating the game and not the company or it's policies. Has my enthusiasm for the game dropped? You bet. I'm now telling people that want to play/ learn the game not to buy themselves a team but rather to borrow mine.
