I have uploaded the first version of my newly created Blood Bowl Reference Guide. I would love to collect feedback from people on how to improve this document, especially if you find any errors that need to be fixed. My email address is in the bottom left corner on the last page of the downloadable PDF. This is the best way to reach me for corrections.

Building this Reference Guide was a big part of how I re-learned Blood Bowl after a 25 year hiatus. I hadn't played since Second Edition back in the late 1980s. I'm no expert, so I suspect there will be some errors that I will need to correct.

Thank you.

The one pager is a welcome addition! In your pre match sequence though, you have flip for kick last, it should be first according to page 23.

Underworld Renegades used to be known as Underworld Pact. Just calling them Underworld was never official I think.

Really good resource, thanks!
