Warhammer Blood Bowl is a tabletop fantasy sports game set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe, where players take on the roles of coaches leading teams of fantastical races in brutal matches of "Blood Bowl," a violent and chaotic sport resembling a mix of American football and rugby. Each team represents a different race from the Warhammer world, such as orcs, elves, dwarfs, and humans, each with its own unique strengths, weaknesses, and playstyle.

The game is played on a grid-based pitch, with players using miniatures to represent their players as they move, pass, tackle, and score touchdowns. Matches are fast-paced and action-packed, with a focus on strategic decision-making, tactical positioning, and bone-crunching violence.

  • 3. What is Blood Bowl gameplay like?

    Blood Bowl is a two-player, turn-based board game that typically uses 28 mm miniatures to represent a contest between two teams on a playing field. A board containing a grid overlay represents the field. Using dice, cards, and counters, the players attempt to score higher than each other by entering the opponent's end zone with a player who possesses the ball.

    The "Blood" in Blood Bowl is represented by the violent actions available to players. Game play is based on a hybrid of American football and Rugby. Players may attempt to injure or maim the opposition in order to make scoring easier by reducing the number of enemy players on the field.

    In league play, players gain additional skills and abilities based on their accumulation of experience points. Players face potential injury or even death on the field throughout their careers. Teams improve by the purchase of off-field staff such as cheerleaders, assistant coaches, and apothecaries. Disparity between team values is offset by the purchase of ad-hoc star players or mercenaries, as well as bribes and additional temporary support staff, such as wizards or a halfling cook.

  • 4. What teams are in Bloodbowl?

    The player races are drawn from the ranks of fantasy races and have characteristics that reflect the abilities of those races. Elves tend to be agile and good at scoring, while dwarfs and orcs are more suited to a grinding, physical style of play.

    All teams offer a choice between player types with different statistics: related races (e.g. skeletons and zombies in undead teams, various lizardmen types), guests of allied races (e.g. trolls in orc and goblin teams), exotic or monstrous units (e.g. ghouls, wights and mummies in undead teams), and specialists of different roles (usually some combination of Blockers, Blitzers, Throwers, Catchers, Runners and Linemen). Teams can include any number of players of the most basic type (usually Linemen), while the stronger units are limited to 1, 2, 4 or 6 per team.
