Blood Bowl coming to iOS!

This is great news, and a great board game to add to your digital collection.

From their website:

"Blood Bowl® is the adaptation of Games Workshop's famous Fantasy football board game inspired by the Warhammer world.

Assemble your team from among six fantastic races* in the Warhammer universe (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves and Chaos). 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 matches in Solo Player mode to enjoy fun, fast games, 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."

Edit: Oh, and according to the site, it's coming out "early July"!

I been waiting for this, I love the PC version, but no doubt the IAP will be every bit as brutal as the matches.

Hope the singleplayer part is good, would wish for a campaign where you start with a lousy backwater team and try to fight your way up the ranks. Read a great fanfic about that once, going to try and find it again

Still coming?

So we get the announcement July 2nd saying it's coming out in early July. It's now mid-July and becoming dangerously close to late July. They didn't specify the year however. Maybe they mean early July 2015?
