Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition adds bears to murderball

Another eight teams join the deadly sport of Blood Bowl 2 [official site] today with the launch of its first expansion. Plenty of teams have come to the sporty wargame as DLC since launch but the expansion whacks in a load at once — including a new circus team who have trained bears to play murderball — along with several new modes. It’ll also offer the ability to play as a team with players from across all factions, though I don’t know why you’d make anything other than an all-bear team. Read the rest of this entry »

Blood Bowl 2

Blood Bowl 2 [official site] – the sequel to the initial digital foray for the American football/Warhammer mashup – is bringing new races, a new stadium and new game modes with the release of its Legendary Edition later in 2017. For me as a non-Warhammerer this involves the press release invocation of terms like “the Kislev Circus and their ferocious Tame Bears” and I sit there scratching my head and trying to work out whether the Hebrew calendar has a bear festival.

eTouchdown: Blood Bowl 2 World Cup

There’s a Blood Bowl 2 [official site] World Cup for PC players. I’m partly writing about this because it falls under the esports remit but MOSTLY because I wanted to register my suggestion that the trophy be an actual bowl full of blood.

I feel like if I start talking about it publicly now there’s a good chance someone will see and act on the idea. A BOWL OF BLOOD, PLEASE.

Wot I Think: Blood Bowl 2

I love Blood Bowl. By that, I don’t necessarily mean Cyanide’s digital adaptations of Blood Bowl – I mean Games Workshop’s violent fantasy-sport and the finely poised ruleset that drives it. But we’re here to talk about the latest digital adaptation so, with consideration for the boardgame and its rules, here’s wot I think of Blood Bowl 2 [official site].

Blood Bowl 2 Is Beautiful, Brutal And Improved

I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed Blood Bowl [official site] until I got my hands on a preview build of the sequel to Cyanide’s digital version. The concept is immediately appealing to me – a violent sport in the Warhammer Fantasy universe – and each match is a condensed tactical battle, short enough to burn through in a short lunchbreak but capable of plugging into a long-term season or tournament format. But does this sequel make the most of the robust ruleset and does it improve on the flaws of the previous attempt? Yes. Sort of. Mostly.
