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.

About the game

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (7 Hours ago)
