Blood Bowl Odds

All rookies are regularly told to play their turn starting from the safest actions to the riskiest ones.

If you’ve just picked up Blood Bowl for the first time, this article may be interesting as a historical document. If you’re moving from BB2016, then it should allow you to adapt to the ruleset more smoothly. I’ll try and draw attention to the significant changes, but will often say “Check the rules” if the change is huge.

How To Be Lucky

Ex England NAF captain, and uber-competitive munchkin, PeteW is very good at Blood Bowl. There’s a saying on FUMBBL, the famous free fantasy football online website: “Don’t play PeteW on a Sunday.” This is because PeteW is known to be lucky, and as a noted Christian, it’s feared by the otherwise sane and rational minds
