Can't be any worse than the old one.

Well, it is GW, so it can be.  I'm gonna check it out and hope they got rid of that stupid-ass chicken on his head.

Wow, I'm actually impressed that they got rid of the giant chicken and put him in a pose where he actually looks like he's playing football.  Kudos to GW.

Now if I can only get a couple different views on that figure so I can see if they got rid of the big pink bow on his ass.

No, I don't think so.  He earned that bow.

NO FUCK YOU.  No star player has a big gay bow on his ass.

And side note, I actually did get back into my Blood Bowl team, and did a whole conversion tonight!  He's tossing a ball like he wants it to land on the backside of an ELF'S ASSHOLE!

Hmmm...I find myself wanting to pick this up...
I saw it at my local games shop for $80.
If it is fast and quick(1-2 hours) then I'll try it out.
I used to play the old NFL table top board game way,way,way back.
This looks like it may be way cooler.
Can't believe I never bought it before.

I recommend it.  I got my copy for 25 bucks on ebay.  There was some thing about stores other than GW stores not being able to sell GW shit anymore, so the small guys had to push out their stock, and were basically giving these things away.

Anyway yeah, it's a great game, definitely under 2 hours (the game enforces a 4-minute turn), and just fun as hell to play.

Awesome...Looks like I'll have to grab one.
Is there one edition that is better than the others?
Or are they all just basically the same.
It looks pretty cool to me but just never had anybody to play with before.
Getting people to play HQ was easy but a footbal type game....Not so easy.
Now with the my kids they will play whatever I say....Muwahahahahahahha
Kids built in gamers got a love it.
Anyway my daughter is hit miss somedays now playing HQ so that leaves me and my son.That's why I created the beastmaster char.So he could do solo quest and still stand a chance.
But I think with blood Bowl it would be better for the two of us to go head to head.
I remember taking my son to a CFL game this fall to watch the bombers take on edmonton and he loved it.One thing he said to me was "Hey dad could you imagine if they just battled each other like warriors."
Sounds like he may already be hooked before he even starts...Thanks for the info.

I was gonna suggest you try the Milton Bradley version first, Battle Ball, but it looks like it's out of print and going for 60 bucks now.

Get any edition you can find.  Really you're looking for everything but the rulebook, since it's available for free (and updated) from Games Workshop.

If you have problems getting people to play it, just have them watch a game.  If they're already familiar with tabletop games then they'll most likely like it.  It's more intense than any other game I've played.  When you've got a guy 2 squares away from the end zone, you roll your Go For It, hit it, then you're just that close to scoring, decide to Go For It again and... BAM, you biff it right in your face and drop the ball.  At this point, trust me, nobody's sitting in their seats; everyone's leaning in waiting for that Go For It roll do go douche.

I think it comes with 2 balls, one with no base and one with a base.  Comes with 1 orc team and 1 human team.
