Anyone played this? It looks neat and bit more "fun" thematically than the more typical Blood Bowl. I think my kid would love this, and it seems like you could easily plug in your own minis and make stuff up pretty easily.
I've seen this called a quicker, better Blood Bowl and more interesting interaction with the actual environment, but I've never played either but have certainly picked up Blood Bowl in the store this week and thought about it
Well Tecmo Bowl is also supposed to be, but thats a more direct comparison. This is supposed to give a blood bowl like feeling but in a quicker and more accessible format, and having less figures in a more compressed space is probably the main reason. I don't understand why any of the board game reviewing "celebs" bother with branding, but maybe they get a few extra free games once they get "famous"?
Nothing will kill Blood Bowl. However, I'm the biggest F:ATtie around here that sings the praises of its spiritual successor from Mantic. DreadBall plays in 1/2 the time with 1/2 the minis and it's a damn good time.
