So, what is this game exactly? Is it an actual football game, or is it more like a boardgame? It's hard to tell from the trailers, and I hadn't heard of it before.

It's both. Blood Bowl is a "Table Top" boardgame featuring a american footballish game with the fans, or rather, hooligans from proper football. The game is set in an alternate version of the Warhammer universe which allows for different teams of a wide variaty of races/factions and abilities. It's also chuck full of violence! You play using dice(it's not without skill before you ask!) and little models or miniatures to represent the teams.

Now this developer, Cyanide I think, is making a game based on this GW game, including building your teams as in the TT version.

I have seen screenshots presumably they are ingame, but I have not seen an actual gameplay trailer yet. I play Blood Bowl from time to time so I am interested in this title.

This is an awsome board game that is football with lots of beating the crap out of your opponent in the process. It is one of the funnest boardgames i have ever played. In our local game store they just recently started a tournament on this game.

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i've been on about 7 types of anti depressants in the last 5 years. lol. it's anecdotal, but they work. they just usually come with some shitty side effect. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog i'd always recommend Prozac over a sugar pill. lol (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: that's why i said "can" there are instances of people having better results from a placebo than that of legit medication. i never said it was a replacement for it though. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Medicine is heavily skewed towards evidence here. We make pharmaceutical companies jump through hoops to prove efficacy and safety. *Not* with perfect results.. but it's pretty good. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's plenty of scientific evidence that various psychoactive drugs are more effective than a placebo. They wouldn't pass the rigorous approval process in the USA without said evidence. (3 Hours ago)
