Newbie questions about bloodbowl one and two
Hello, I never played this game (actually I did play the board version 20 years ago :-) but unfortunately it was just before my rave party stage so I just remember the box. I probably chewed the cardboard figurines soon after).
A friend of mine does play this game extensively. He is an old chessgame partner and I really trust his judgment. If he likes this game there must be something.
I saw some let's play, have read some stuff and I thought it looks fun. And my doctor said I need to practice a sport.
But besides the fact that I'm not rich enough to buy a game just for the joy of lining it up on a shelf I really start to wonder if it is worth buying it now, just when the second edition is about to come.
Btw when is it supposed to be out exactly ?
Do you think it will immediatly make the first edition obsolete or will the fans continue with the first for a while ?

Blood Bowl's on sale (Steam etc) for ~£5 pretty often, I'd wait for that. BB2 is the same game but with better graphics and a smaller selection of teams, so I don't see us moving to that for quite a while (until the race selection is better).

I see... And they will probably enlarge this selection will various dlc.
Thanks for the advice. I will try to get BB for a cheap price, then.

If you would like to get an impression of the game before buying, you could also try FUMBBL, which is a web-based client version of Blood Bowl. FUMBBL has a more complete implementation of the game rules, all the races and Star Players (not all inducement options of the board game but still more than Cyanide's version) and gives - in my eyes - a better view of the pitch. It's also easy to quickly find games, something which might be regarded as a weak spot of RPS Blood Bowl - we usually don't manage to get in more than one game per league per 10 days on a regular basis. That's cool for running week-to-week leagues but it makes the learning progress quite slow (and given the wild mix of TV in the leagues sometimes also pretty daunting).

That's even better ! Thx Squiz !
EDIT : About the pitch, I understand you have a more global view, but it somehow feels less natural. It reminds me chess and the difference between seing the board in 3D or on a book or a web site.

Maye, when I'm not a BB-beginner anymore I'll give FUMBBL another try.
