Hey, what's up? Thought I'd stop by and introduce myself.

I've been playing Blood Bowl for about 2 years now (started with the PC version), and just last month purchased a big lot of teams, the board game + Death Zone, and a few Star Players which got me way more into the game. I've been mostly playing against my brothers, and occasionally the girlfriend, since there's no leagues around here. I hope I can change that soon if I can recruit some people.

I mainly play as Dwarves, and just finished painting my team the other day. I'll probably throw up pictures eventually.

Uh, that's really I can think of right now, so, Hello!

welcome!

Deathzone and the rules in the boxed set are all out of date, so if you want the latest rules then you can download them from GW's website (under BB resources)

Where abouts are you? You may find someone local on here if you are lucky.

Welcome!

You're playing with a bunch of people and can't find a league??? How about starting a league with that bunch? I run a 10 team league with my kid.

Hope you stick with BB, the funniest game ever.

Thanks! I know they're all out of date, but it all came with everything I bought, and was fairly cheap. I got a PDF of LRB6 and printed it out, so that's what we've been using. I'm from Pennsylvania USA, about an hour from Scranton. It's a pretty rural area so I haven't had much luck so far.

Haha, thanks. Hey, why not go smaller with Snotlings?

Thanks! Yeah, it's only about 4 people including me, though I have to beg my girlfriend to (and that carries the stipulation that I have to go jogging with her). I figure I can get a tiny league started, but I want to keep it from getting repetitive.

Welcome! I am pretty new too, but I've already learned the most important fact every BB player has to know: GW is evil. Make sure to remember that and everything's sorted for good. :lol:

Welcome, Throm :)

I'm not sure where exactly he's based, but you might want to look up Jaylazer, as he is definitely a PA resident (I am aware that Pennslyvania is a tad large ;))

I just prefer how dwarves play, though I know how much people think of them. :lol:

My brother plays Undead, and has messed me up a few times. We just usually do one off matches, and I've lost so many guys to those Mummies.

Yeah, I figured that. Haha. Everything Blood Bowl related that I own I got secondhand, and I want to keep it that way.

Thanks! It's been both so far. I've been mostly lurking to get a feel for it, but I do enjoy the place.

Thank you! I checked, and he's from Philadelphia, which is about 3 hours south of me, unfortunately. The area I live in is pretty awful for stuff like this.
