Blood Bowl Killer? 05 Nov 2017 08:21 #257041



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

Why would a wrestling game be a Blood Bowl killer, exactly? I'd say Techno Bowl is a Blood Bowl killer, if anything.

Also, Mutant League Football just came out on Steam, and it looks pretty great.

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"?

I purchased Mutant League Football. It plays like a simplified Madden, but without the responsive controls. I'm using my Xbox controller and I experience some delay. I found the game frustrating.

I would put forth that there may be brief competitors to Blood Bowl, but nothing is knocking that juggernaut out.

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.
