Blood Bowl, in this reviewer's opinion, has since its conception in 1987, evolved over five editions to simply the best board game this reviewer has ever played. It is categorically unwise to call it the best boardgame in the world unless one has played all the boardgames in the world, but there is *evidence* to suggest that the statement *might* be true.
All boardgames start from a more or less pre-determined or at least from a limited number of scenarios, right? Not so with Blood Bowl. With twenty different teams to choose from and a practically infinite number of builds for them, two games are unlikely to start the same, whether you're playing against A.I. or another human. And even if the teams in two games are exactly the same, the playing conditions (the weather) and random events that occur even before the first turn are likely to instantly give each game a different starting situation. And that's just with *newly* created teams.
All boardgames end when one player wins, right? Not so with Blood Bowl. The keyword around which the Fifth Edition was developed was "Perpetual", meaning that you could play the game FOREVER. It would just consist of any number of matches. Very RPG. You start a team. You hire your starting players.Read more ›
As a traditional player, I have only touched the blitz mode a little bit, favouring the original games rules, which can get very one-sided against the AI either for or against you, which has a pretty unbalanced and unpolished feel to it, but the real fun of this game is with playing against other players. Bring your own teams, host your own competitions, and play with your friends. Your development of your teams and nurturing your players growth is where this game shines.
If you are a fan of the game, you will love this as a way of bringing your characters to life, and if you are new, this is a nice way of being introduced to the board game.
Pluses : The rules of the original are followed to a tee.
The variety of teams is excellent, even including the drow, ok ok THR DARK ELVES.
A good tutorial, if a little basic.
Good campaign mode, but may get repetitive.
Good team advancement.

The biggie is the AI in single player mode. Despite what you hear on some forums the dice are weighted against you and unless you grind away for hours on end and become an excellent tactician, you will not win games. However if you go To the Blood Bowl website and click on Forums > You vs AI > Are the dice supposed to be that weighted for the AI?,read down a bit to the post by Spectre this will tell you how to make the dice rolls truely random as in the real game
Again, even with this the AI is fairly insipid, which is probably why they weighted the dice in the first place.
The UI is terrible and confusing, once you finish a tournement you can't go back and review the standings etc etc. It's basically backwards or forwards arrows. For instance you get the Buy Players button even if you can't afford them, click it and you get the, you don't have enough money notification (obviously).
Customising is average, you can only change the armour, there are a few skins for players, but nothing exceptional, btw, the dark elves are pink skinned/white.Read more ›
as you don't need to be online to play it.
its worth buying
The Good: Faithful recreation of the game from Games Workshop, with most of the teams and rules lifted straight from the Living Rulebook. The graphics and animations are characterful, humorous, and again, very Games Workshop. Campaign and Story mode offer plenty of amusement for those who prefer to play alone.
The Bad (or at least not so good): The AI isn't too tough to beat, so whilst campaign and story mode offer a good opportunity to train up your skillz for the online leagues, you'll get bored pretty quickly if you're any good. Although there are a wide variety of teams to choose from, the customization options within the teams are fairly limited with only a few different types of armour available per race. The UI isn't very user friendly, tooltips are a rare breed indeed.
The Bloomin' Ugly: I can see that many people are enjoying playing in online leagues, so I appreciate that this isn't a problem for everyone. However, I have had major problems connecting to online games. I have spent literally hours following forum advice (I am not the only one affected), aswell as instructions from the Cyanide Customer Support Team, who to be frank weren't very supportive. What can I say- it works sometimes, other times it doesn't.Read more ›

I can't really rate it because it was delivered direct to another party as a present and I have no feedback. I've had no complaint so presume it does just fine.Published on 28 Dec. 2013 by D. R. Brown
American football, orcs, blood, gore, chess and dice. What's not to like!
However not one for Madden fans - it's basically a tabletop board game - chess with dice!
