This podcast is concerned with the people who play the game of Blood Bowl, Game Workshop's game of fantasy football. Specifically, we report on the tournament scene in Alberta, Canada.
We start the pod off with rejoicing! Thor's Hammerslam FINALLY has a green light to get played as a holdover from December 2019! We then chat about the impact of the recent errata that was released. Finally, we settle into one of our favourite topics - Hobbying! Tips, tricks, and trials that make us love the game!
This week, we put out a request on Twitter (@ref_get) about what we should talk about this month - and thankfully, Jeffro came through!
This month, we talk about how our Roll20 mini-tournament went and our teams that we took to it. After, we start chatting about stars and their proposed roles in the new system. Hint: they are a big deal! And we definitely don't talk about Adam. Or the Old World Alliance.
Josh has just come out of quarantine. Scott is still there. It doesn't take long, however, for the boys pull up a stump and talk about some of the rumoured new releases and send up their wish list for the upcoming Death Zone supplement. We check in on our FUMBBL league and discus Rolld20 as a possible platform for playing games in the future!
We start off this episode talking about the Glowfather and his "Thrudball" tournament. If you are interested in registering or just buying a raffle ticket, go to www.thrudball.com - registration is open!
Then we sit about and draft our favourite players into four teams that we could use in a mini-tournament if we can eventually gather in the same room to play. While there is a probable winner crowned, the fun is in the discussion. Join us as we occupy ourselves during lockdown!
What's In The Box?
Josh, Scott, Lair, and Darcy gather around the fireside to chat about secret box shipments, the stars worth ordering and inducing, more tips about tournament organizing, and a general sense of longing for in-person tournament action!
Five Golden Toques
Josh and Scott are joined by Darcy and Lair as we run through our twelve days of Christmas, just like our former Prime Ministers, Bob and Doug Mackenzie. We chat more than a beer in a ... tree, indeed! We run through the recently released FAQ in our Rumour Mill, introduce NAF-man, run through the four remaining God-like stars for Hammerslam, and introduce the idea of the "chainpush" to the rookies.
All in all, we are just four friends looking forward to playing games in person again soon.
Great new podcast!
Got to say this is a freash new spin on blood bowl podcast. Interviewing tournament winners and indepth look at tournament rules and such are amazing! Thank you for the kind words for Sin City Bowl and Las Vegas Open Bowl!
