Thanks

I'd say it is tied with Warhammer Quest.

And where does Heroquest rank?  Wink

Or doesn't it count due to it's Milton Bradley taint?

I say it would count.  I'd probably put it real close to Blood Bowl.

I never played Warhammer Quest (despite owning it) but it looks pretty complicated (I'd want to play with the Roleplay rules).  The reason I liked Blood Bowl so much is because gameplay was pretty quick and exciting.  At one point during our first game, me and my brother realized we were standing over the table instead of sitting.  It was just that exciting.  I don't think that happened much with HeroQuest, so that's why I like Blood Bowl the best.

It doesn't count.... It's in a league of it's own.

I found it was best played after loads of beer, then you really let go, in fact that goes for all the games mentioned.

Yeah, beer and games is the shit.  I heard in the Blood Bowl forums that in England, people will play Blood Bowl in pubs and shit.  That's fucking cool.  You do that over here and people will look at you funny.

You wanna see some of the weirdo's we get in the UK pubs, it's not surprising that they don't get a second looking playing a board game in the pub.
Cool idea tho', until you lose and chuck the board across the pub.......

We had a Bloodbowl league at our local game store. My best friend who has really chronic bad luck with dice got so mad at his Human team: The Orange Roughians, that he picked up the whole team... Opened the back door of the game shop.... And tossed them out into the alley behind the store.... Then he closed the door and turned around and said "I'm never playing this fucked up game again!!"

Haha nice.

My worst luck game is HeroScape.  My brother agrees with me that there are supernatural forces that don't want me to win that game.  I've only won one game, and it was the scenario where you don't have to kill the other team, just get some dudes to the other side of the table.  Basically if I don't have to roll dice, I might win.

We even tried switching our dice.  No luck.  Literally.  I can have a dude with 7 Attack try to attack a dude with like 3 Defense, and I won't hit.  Repeatedly.  Whenever I use the dragon, Mimring, I never hit ANYONE with the line of fire attack.  He used it once and torched like 4 of my dudes.

Funny thing is I'm still willing to play again.  I've never taken such a beating in a game and wanted to play again.  Like Battle Masters.  I always lost that game (I played Chaos).  Fuck that game.  HeroScape is cool though.  One day the dice will like me.

Yah we played a couple of games the night before last. I had this guy with 5 defense and three times in a row I rolled those 5 dice and never got a single shield. That's 15 dice and no shields!!! Shocked

One game, I thought it was in the bag.  I take out over half his team in the first turn with the paratroopers.  Then he proceeds to kick my ass for the rest of the game.

I know what you mean - I have given up playing that big robot deathstalker 9000 because EVERY time I play him he rolls NINE defense dice and STILL DIES even if he only needs to get one shield ! ! !

Anyway, to get back on topic, how are those figures coming Bruenor - I would love to see some more!  Smiley

Erm, they're coming very slowly, as I have gotten a bit dishearterned in them as a team, as they get thrashed each time they play.
Talk about bad dice rolls huh?

I have made a star player for them tho', so maybe he'll make some difference.

Heh nice.  I never played as Marauders.  But you really have to know how each team plays.  Humans are good runners cause they can hold their own pretty well and run a decent distance (GO FOR IT!).  Orcs are fun, because really what you have to do is forget the ball and injure the crap out of the other team until you outnumber them almost 2 to 1, then start scoring.  Smiley
