Here we are, 13? 14 years since the last officially published version of Blood Bowl and finally a new edition is nearing release.
Stuff from the unboxing:
Watch that. Templates are plastic for scatter. Comes with 12 players per team, so you’ll need another sprue for an entire team of 16. The minis can be put together without plastic glue. The bases are BIGGER than we are used to but they have pegs for the balls! The pitch is pretty much awesome and double sided. That’s the main thing people have had to make from scratch if they couldn’t find an old version. Looks beautiful.
Odd and cool stuff:
Comes with a D16 dice for generating players getting hit with stuff, so no more chits!
Biggest thing is the RETURN of the special play cards. I loved these from the original game though they did cause problems in tournament play (serious tournament play that is). The design of these is critical.
All in all:
