Blood Bowl: The Official Rules

If you already own previous copies of the game, so you have teams, pitches, tokens & dice (I do, by the bucket load), this is well worth it to keep you updated with the latest version.

Blood Bowl! Now with 50% more bowls!

Blood Bowl is a great game. The usual tldr is that this is Rugby in the Warhammer World, which says a lot about the setting but not much mechanically.

Blood Bowl has a good balance of strategy and luck, occasionally referred to as ‘chess with dice’. Risk mitigation plays a key roll in successful play, and players need to balance the risk/reward of each play to make the best use of the team.

But onto the book itself.
It’s well produced, looks very pretty. It is a sturdy hardback with an excellent print finish. Importantly it contains all the rules at launch of Blood Bowl 2020. Of course it has ambiguities and errors as all GW books have, however there is already an FAQ and Errata available online to resolve these. The book also has a good index which helps in the search for rulings.

If you’re already a Blood Bowl player then the rulebook is all you need for the new Season.

If you’re looking to get into the game it’s honestly hard to recommend this over the box set, which includes the rules as well as the pitch, dice, templates and two teams for very good value! Hence 4 stars over 5.

Fantastic service, arrived next day delivery at no extra cost. Pack arrived in perfect condition. The pack itself is excellent for supplementing your Galactic force, comes with a great range of pilot cards and the model itself is awesome. Everything you need is in the box to make use of the Tie Advanced in X Wing 2nd Edition.
