  • My FLGS is about to launch into Blood Bowl and that was the push I needed. I've bene curious about this game for a long time. Thanks for this video! Great intro to the game and overview.

  • Love Bloodbowl but i hate the makers! What sort of company creates a miniatures game that has teams of up to 16 players yet they only sell players in boxes of 11 players! Worse yet you cannot buy spare miniatures to make up the team size - you need to by another full set of 11! If that wasn't enough you can't even buy most of the big guys, mercenaries or star players. No cheerleaders for most either! After 30 odd years you would think they would at least work out the difference between 11 players and 16 and get this basic (but essential) issue sorted!

  • I never played Blood Bowl in the 90s but I’ve heard my friends bang on about how it was the perfect game. Something which I never quite followed until I saw your ‘gushing’ intro. It was so heartfelt and warm I instantly felt the love that everyone has for this game and I’m glad my brother and I picked up the 2nd season (each) to see what the fuss is about. Needles to say, after watching you go through memory lane I am totally psyched to get cracking with building and painting (will def take me more than a day 🥴! Normally takes me a day just to build up the resolve to start assembling - I’m very much like you in that I hate the building part of the hobby). Anyway, loving the game so far, have got my trusty rule book to hand and reading it as I watch you errrrrrr play with yourself?!

    • If you’ve both got a set, pick a team to play, assemble the other and play on a video call! Because it’s a board game it’s PERFECT to be played remotely. ♥️

    • Hahaha! I’m glad you enjoyed it. The design team REALLY hit the nail on the head with this one from the art direction to the tone of the writing to the rules all the way top to bottom. I couldn’t be happier with this edition of the game and it’s never been a better time to hit the Astrogranite!

  • Thanks, Ash. I was into building and painting in the late 90s, but never played. My mum recently visited our local store with my son and treated him to a model, which I am helping him with and which has reignited my interest. I have ordered Blood Bowl Second Season Edition and I look forward to playing my first Warhammer game over 20 years after beginning the hobby. I cannot believe what good value this boxed game is!

  • So I bought the 2016 starter box just before this new edition was released, do I just need the new rulebook to play with my old pitch/models?

    Ben CrowdenBen Crowden2 tháng trước
    • Yup! Everything else is identical. And the new rulebook is REALLY comprehensive so you likely won’t need anything else except if you want to buy more team boxes!

  • I thought blitzing cost a square of movement? Hence that Black Orc blitz early in the game would have needed a second rush roll to blitz that lineman into the crowd?

  • Just got my 2nd season box and a couple of extra teams Ash. As a complete Noob, l found this video the most informative one l have seen up to now. Thank you. I intend to 1,learn the game 2, build and paint a good all-round Orc/Goblin team to tour in the spring 3, build same team again in away colors. Any advice you could provide on actual team-building would be great. Going for teams with no star players or big guys to start with. A learn blood bowl from the beginning series would be super cool. Thanks again, Gar Zinski. ps. Our little exhibition games will be mostly orc v orc as most of the guys involved have ork related u tube channels and are uk based.

  • I’d love to see you do a league :). Blood Bowl remains one of the best games for many 80’s/90’s gamer. I myself remember getting the box when I was about 17 which is just around the 2000’s. Back then it was already a Specialist Game, which made it even more special to our gaming group. We scavenged all kinds of GW models to substitute the teams which only had rather expensive metal mini’s only to be ordered from GW themselves. That box travelled from one friends home to the next (where we all collected and watched games being played by 2 of us) commenting along as if watching tv-sports. Good times!

  • I thought only one RR per turn? Almost sure turn one humans you used 2 that turn. Also, at 33:41 you blitzed with a black orc I thought the rule is that an extra movement would also have to be expended for the actual block. I only saw a GFI roll for an extra movement, but not the block

    vulkangamingTFUvulkangamingTFU3 tháng trước
  • I was always a fan of buying rerolls (because my dice-rolling ability is poor as I'd fail to pick up the ball on a empty square with Sure Hands) and fan factor (because it helped on a few of the kickoff events and money at the gate) but nice to see that you have lots of options for bribes and star players.

  • Well, I loved the video.Though like a lot of others I noticed a few mistakes but there was one mistake that maybe I'm wrong. In old rules when knocked faced down, the only thing you could do was turn over, Unless the rule has changed? At the beginning of the human teams turn you started turning stunned players face up then after doing a couple more moves you stood them up like they were only knocked down.When I ran leagues at my store I had a house rule that you couldn't turn players face up until the end of your turn. Made it less likely that this would happen and it was automatic so no one was forgotten.But to your credit, you were playing both teams and Bloodbowl does make you use every single brain cell. Still a good job.

  • The blitzer didn't roll a Dodge before the human team scored and there were so many times you rolled both down with a black orc and didn't use brawler even though the other result was a safe roll of a push. That being said great video, definitely a lot to remember when you're playing both teams in a new edition 😂

  • the Naggaroth Stinging Nettles my first ever Blood Bowl team! Those Dark Elves made there way to fortune and glory!!!..... I mean not with any of the original players .... ya one by one they all died in grizzly brutal ways like Ickthain the Assassin brutally cutting down a tree man with one swipe of his poisoned blade, to busy admiring his handiwork to move out of the path of the fall, the witch Ursula Feinblood in a state of frenzy she tried to push a Rat Ogre off the pitch. it took a few hours but they were able to find most of her, but come on this is Blood Bowl! If you live past your first season your an All Star by default ..... Maybe it's time to bring back the old flags and wash out the blood stained jockey shorts .... The Nettles shall sting again!

  • I think people are being a little harsh criticizing the tactics/strategy, it's a let's play. However, you get multiple rules wrong constantly throughout the game. Missing Bonehead roles, missed a loner roll, tackle zone issues, using a team RR twice in a turn, using a team RR to reroll one die. Using too many block dice & missing assists, and that was in like 4 turns. If you're a new player watching this, take it as entertainment. There are many errors with the rules, almost every turn throughout the game.

    Blaine SmithBlaine Smith3 tháng trước
    • You know it's hard to watch when take in mind Ash played this game many times before, watching him using mutliple times team reroll in one turn, forgeting about bonehead/rly stuped rolls before any action for big guys. Ash should invite someone to play ,who knows the rules and cath him making those ridiculous mistakes...

      Sebek031Sebek0313 tháng trước
  • 30 minutes in and my internal gamer is screaming.... ya left a lineman on the border of the pitch, forgot the loner roll on your thrower (prayers to Nuffle being new so minimal annoyance), forgot to do a bonehead roll for the ogre before blocking, then used a second RR on the same turn...

Additionaly you have to declare blitz BEFORE you move not after. Great video how not to play blood bowl.

  • After seeing your review of the book, I definitely think you have dodging and jumping mixed up: at 57:05 you say there’s a negative mod for dodging away from the blorc but he’s dodging into an unmarked space. P. 45, “Marked Players and Dodging” says “… Note that if the player is Open in the square they have moved into, there are no modifiers or apply for being Marked.”

  • Cool with a new Blood Bowl. But to me, Blitz Bowl is superior! :) Such a quick and frenzy game! Fantastic with the challange cards, Blood Bowl miss that.

    ViktorViktor3 tháng trước
  • 20:30 Did they remove the bad kick (extra scatter distance) result from the kickoff table or something? You used to roll scatter for the kick after the table roll in case the extra scatter result came up. Sounds like the cheering fans thing changed too - do you really only add cheerleaders to the roll and not your fan factor? That's kind of silly if so.

    Rich McGeeRich McGee3 tháng trước
  • First Blood Bowl Second Season Batrep to go online, Kudos. I'm loving the new version so far, for the most part the subtle rules changes are only good for the game, especially the new Passing Stat. I noticed that you made a few mistakes that could've changed the games result quite a bit. 25:50 you didn't need to spend a team re-roll, the Blitzers now have the Catch skill which (if it hasn't changed) gives that player a re-roll. 56:01 you mistakenly stood up a player who should've stayed down due to Stunned. This is why Stunned players are turned upward at the end of the turn. It would have made the Block thrown at the goblin (56:51) one dice rather than two. 1:09:19 Unless the rules have changed for the new edition the Endzone doesn't count for a Touchback as the ball must leave the field or cross the LoS back into the kickers territory, the Endzone counts as part of the receivers territory. Let me say though that for a Demo game non of these errors really matter at all and didn't detract from my enjoyment of the video in any way,l I just thought you should be aware for when you get to play with other people. :D All in all a great presentation and it makes me even more eager for the time I can get my hands on a copy. Once things settle down a little I'd love to see a tournament on the channel

    • To add to this - Brawler skill on the Black Orcs would have let him re-roll some of the "Both Down" results. The curse of demoing with 2 new team's, and playing both sides, is the increased chance of missing their skills.

  • Why did they call this "Second Season" anyway? By my count, this is at least the sixth edition, and that's not counting screwball spinoffs like Dungeonball from back in the 2nd ed days. The one Ash shows off from the 90s was 3rd, IIRC.

    Rich McGeeRich McGee3 tháng trước
    • Because they took the rulebook and fluff in a very new direction. Direct built in modifiers to dice rolls and new skills with rules. It is the biggest overhaul quite sometime.

    TheJankmasterTheJankmaster3 tháng trước
  • So I don't have that new rulebook yet, but looking at this on its face, I think that the 3+, for example, to have the thrower to pick-up the ball, is essentially the same as what it was before...with the new-tangled GW dice mechanic backed-in. Similar to what BS3 was like before in 40K. It seems that modifier for picking-up the ball is already included in that 3+ already includes the +1 modifier for that action from the last version. Although my guess is that the negative modifiers would still be applied when warranted. (Tackle Zones, weather effects, etc.) I am still early in this vid, but I have to say the the "Prayers to Nuffle" are really in the spirit of earlier versions...adding some randomness back to how the crowd impacts the game. This is awesome...and helps it become something less mundane to the game than just modifiers to kick-off results.

  • Soooo, I’m on the fence. It’s 200$ where I am, and it seems neat but suuuuper random and tons of dice, I hesitate

    • Blood Bowl is a game of risk management. The best players take the least risks for the most gain. You can use good positioning to minimize risk (generally for free) by adding assists for blocks. Throwing is risky, but you can get big rewards in moving the ball up field. Running is safer, but slower. etc.

    • @Rich McGee They have had tiers even before this. Especially in tournament play. And it has been adjusted in tournaments that lower tier teams get more benefits starting out. And yeah. This game is kinda the most random out of the GW's games. So much can fall on a single dice roll. In 40k and AoS the amount of dice rolled does work to some extent to balance the odds, but there are swings as well. KT and Warcry both can have wilder swings due to less dice being rolled, but singular failed roll doesn't stop the other person doing anything about it, it gives momentary advance to their opponent since one activation did not do as it was supposed to. In Blood Bowl if you fail your first action... That's it then. Your opponent's go. Even during few first rolls, the amount of possible rolls that are left unrolled can be quite high. Not to mention that even if they are rolled, they might not amount to anything, like in the other games that lack the "oh, you failed? Next!" So yeah. Blood Bowl is pretty much the most random. But it's outright hilarious at it and well worth trying. Granted, 200$ is pretty hefty for "trying", but if you (B B) can test it out in your local shop, I definitely recommend it. My friends track record for re-rolling 1s back to 1s was 50% of the time back in the day. He kept count. XD

    • @Rich McGee What? I love blood bowl it is the one game I have played weekly for 6 years! It's okay to point out the flaws in the games you love. I am just aware of the games flaws. Teams having a tier still doesn't matter for league play and it might matter for casual play. The two teams in the same box being in the "same tier" really doesn't matter in this conversation. RNG isn't the argument here it's the game balance. So I don't know why you are bringing Warcry into this.

    • @Saurus Blood Go watch the review Ash did. Every team has a tier now, regardless of format, and the two in the starter box are the same and will play fine against one another. You clearly have some serious hate on for this game for some arcane reason, but if you want to talk random, how about Warcry? That one's their current king of RNG, not Bloodbowl.

    • @Rich McGee But that is for tournament play. Not league or casual play unless they recently added something in the 2020 rules. The game out of the box is unbalanced plain and simple.

  • Wait SPIRIT HOST are on the rules book? Does this mean the story has advanced to the AoS lore? Also human turn one there was an illegal RR on the Ogre (Ogor now? lol) as the RR was used for the catch (didn't matter as he failed the loner check lol but did cause a loss of a RR)

    • To be fair, his first team re-roll was spend on a player who had Catch anyway.

  • Normally I would complain about rules stuff but I just enjoyed seeing someone play all out without regard for standard tactics and such. First turn. I am like that person on the sideline is going into the crowd the instant you moved them there. I am sure it was to show off the rules.

  • Ash those blitzers have catch,they have builded free reroll for catching an accurate pass. Ogre need to roll his bonehead check before you declare an action for him and you can't burn a team reroll in your turn more then one,you cheated yourself again. Also Wrestle is not a new skill xD

    • Also really stupid is a 4+ if not next to a "smart" teammate unless they changed it but his opponent never caught it so...
