Oh, ouch! Did you see that move, Jim?
That looks like another candidate for the Anti-Violence Watchdog Committee’s coveted “Worst Tackle of the Year” award, Bob!
And it looks like the ref has something to say about that play. Yes, he’s got a red flag out and – ohhh. Well, don’t worry, folks...there’s more refs where he came from.

The rules reflect the Blood Bowl Universe perfectly! Love the tie-breaker rule as well!
The only way i can see expansions coming out is to release other teams (I.e. Lizardmen, Haflings, Dark Elves, etc) might be a lot to make, but when all the teams are out, people can play as their favourite teams as oppose to the original 6.
Apart from that, brilliant game, can't wait for the release!
I'm happy that this ISN'T a LCG! I bought LOTR LCG and got rid off it as soon as I calculated how much more money it'd take to fully enjoy the game while buying all the expansions. LCG also requires more time investment - I can drop any boardgame and get back to it after months and not to miss anything. Not so with LCG. So yeah, I'm happy that it won't be LCG.
My favorite game from GenCon!
So entertaining. It was gone by Thursday evening I believe. We grabbed a copy when there were about 30 left and have had a blast with it ever since. Fun, unique, captures the Blood Bowl 'setting' vibe perfectly. I'm very glad it's not just a card game version of the boardgame.
Me too. Pity it isnt LCG :(.
Missed my chance to own this one at GenCon. Can't wait for the release...
