Blood Bowl is the adaptation of the famous Warhammer Fantasy football board game created by Games Workshop.

Assemble your team from among eight fantastic races* in the Warhammer universe (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves, Chaos, Lizardmen and Dark Elves). Each race has its own strengths, weaknesses and numerous opportunities to develop which will lend an immense tactical depth to the game.

Immerse yourself in single games in Solo Player mode to enjoy fun matches that wont make your head hurt, or set off to conquer the Blood Bowl in the extensive Campaign mode. Develop your team and players by gaining victories and experience as you progress in the game.

In Multiplayer you can compete against a friend on your tablet in Hotseat mode, or launch yourself into the vast online world in a massive permanent league where you can create and develop your teams. Play against Blood Bowl players from all over the world thanks to our cross-platform multiplayer modes!

*The base game enables you to play Humans and Orcs: the other races are available from the in-game store.

It's a super fun game, but the digital execution is lacking. The fact that the IOS version has about 90% fewer races than on PC also doesn't help the matter. Still, it isn't horrible, it simply could have been so much better.

Ah is often the case with many of these games...so many that could be so much more or something special but they fail to put the effort in or do it wrong.

I'll just keep my eye on it then as I have...maybe we will get Blood Bowl 2 instead.

I sort of forgot about this game. A price drop is a good way to jog my memory though.

Any advice for a new player?

1.) The tutorial sucks. There are several linked videos on page 1 and 2. TotalBiscut's series is pretty good.
2.) RTFM. Seriously. Blood Bowl Competition Rules.
3.) Read Parkingtigers posts on page 1 and 2. Good advice.
4.) Seriously RTFM. The game is complicated.
5.) Start as Orcs. They're a solid starting team.
6.) There is a little bubble in the bottom left corner that will give you the odds. Pay attention to it.
7.) In a turn, do the safest things first. Risky things lead to turnovers.
8.) Playbooks - Read them after the manual!
9.) Manual - Read it.

I'd forgotten all about this thread, been kind of busy for playing much Blood Bowl since my last post in here. Recently upgraded to an iPad mini 3, so got a lot more space and a shinier screen. Now I see there are two more teams released I'm going to be all over those. Lizardmen and Dark Elves were a great choice to add next. I'm thinking Dark Elves will suit my play style nicely. Agile enough to dodge about a bit, and vicious sods who like to hurt their opponents. Time to start a fresh campaign I reckon.

Hi to all those that still play this. It's a good game, got a ton of good gaming hours out of it so far. I really hope they still add in a couple of extra stadiums at some point but I've still never regretted this purchase.
