Dead Ball (Blood Bowl) by Matt Forbeck

This is the second book written about the ultra violent game of blood bowl and it's more of the same. This isn't a book you can really pick up with having read the first one, you miss out too much information about the game and the characters which are not included in this book.
During a terrible match many of the bad bay hackers, the team our hero plays for, are killed leaving a huge gap in the teams line up. After recruiting the team travels to the distant land of Albion to hone their skills. Albion is the Warhammer worlds version or Britain and as you read this you'll find more puns than you can shake a large sticky object at, check out the new members of the team… Read more

With the new version of White Wolf's world of darkness being released we were all promised he chance to play humans mixed up in the crazy world for once.

I don't know how he does it you know. Another discworld book, another set of characters but, and lets face it here, the same plot as antoher book. And yet he manages to make it work so well it's kinda scary. Going postal is a little too close to "The Truth" for me to be happy, you know what I mean if you've read it, a run down organisation trying to make itself better against adversity and evil rich people. But like I say it still works wonders, look at it anyway you want, a funny discworld book, a commentry on the little guy going up against big business and winning, or just a book about a guy called Moist (and yet there are almost no jokes about his name). this isn't the best jumping on… Read more
