Starting Out
02/02/09 at 5:54am
 
OK so I have got an old set of Blood Bowl (on loan from my fellas bro for me to paint) and my fella is keen to have a game of it - so should I learn the rules that came in the box or get the latest living rulebook thingy I have heard about?

I have got the 1988 edition I think with two companion books "Blood Bowl Companion" and "Blood Bowl Star Players"

So what do I need to read to get us playing?

That would be 2nd edition.
Current is 4th edition.
Grab the Living Rule Book.

Yeah I'd say start with the living rulebook.  Don't even worry about the others.

One thing I did that helped tremendously is I made a cheat sheet of what everyone can do during a turn, and how to do it.  Being able to reference the most common actions on one sheet kept our games moving fast.

While reading the rules, just make notes on whatever you think is important, then compile it later for a nice little cheat sheet.

So what you're saying is, she should make a cheat sheet?

How about loading up your cheat sheet for me?!  Grin

Seriously...

then maybe you can you come and play for me too  Wink

No, but I am serious - how do I know what bits are important until I play?  Then I know I will be back to hunting through the rule book as different situations arise.

Duh, I'll dig it up and see if I can find it.  The only reason I remembered I made one is cause I just dug up my Blood Bowl game and saw it in there.

If I can't find the file I'll re-type it.

You may want to cross-check it though, cause I don't know what version the living rulebook was in when I was playing.
