Blood Bowl at the UK Games Expo hosted on fumbbl.comBlood Bowl, (the fantasy football game by Games Workshop) at the UKGE will be a “resurrection style” tournament in which two Blood Bowl teams are pitted against each other over 2 hours and 30 minutes in a 16-turn game. The result of this game (win, lose or draw) is then submitted to the tournament organiser, points are scored and the teams are totally reset to begin round 2. After three round a winner is declared and so ends the Blood Bowl fun!<br>This tournament will use the rules produced by Games Workshop in 2016, any further rules altered or released by Games Workshop after that release will also be in force.

How many rounds?Each team will compete in 3 game rounds.The first round will be randomly drawn.For round two and three the Swiss system will be used to determine your opponent (i.e. closest to you on your points ranking). Between rounds no tiebreakers are applied to those on the same score, so multiple players with the same tournament score will be drawn randomly against one another.Creating your teamRosters are purchased with a treasury of 1,150,000 gold crowns and any of the 26 teams recognised by the NAF. The full list of teams can be found here:<br> here for Bretonnian, Slann and Khorne teams (Ignore the list of Legacy star players these cannot be used). may not be purchased as part of your tournament roster other than the following exceptions:Halfling, Goblin and Ogre teams may hire 0-2 Star PlayersGoblins may hire 0-3 BribesHalflings may hire a Master ChefIf you include a Star Player(s) in your roster you must first have at least 11 regular roster players. If two coaches are drawn against each other in the tournament with the same Star Player on their roster, then both players are permitted to use the Star.(If you take any of the above inducements then leave the value for the inducement off your roster. You will purchase the star prior to each game on the fumbbl client)All teams also get to add 4 additional skills to their roster. These skills are free and do not need to be paid for in any way. The additional skills are applied as follows: Before the games begin: 1 normal skill and 1 “double”. These 2 skills should be given to two different players. The “double” skill refers to a skill that would require a double roll to be applied in a league situation. For example a Halfling cannot normally take a General skill, but can take one as his “double” option. Note that the double skill is optional, so you can choose to take two normal skills instead.

Before Game 2: 1 normal skill. This skill must be given to a player who has not already had an additional skill allocated.Before Game 3: 1 normal skill. This skill must be given to a player who has not already had an additional skill allocated.All the skills should be indicated on you roster before the start of the tournament.Example Roster and skill allocation:Lizardmen6 Saurus (@ 80,000 Gold Crowns) = 480,0005 Skinks (@ 60,000 GC) = 300,0001 Kroxigor = 140,0003 rerolls (@ 60,000 GC) = 180,0001 Apothecary = 50,000TEAM TOTAL = 1,150,000 Gold Crowns <br><br>I then choose to add the “Block” skill to both one Saurus (normal skill) and the Kroxigor (double skill) before the tournament begins. <br>After Game 1, I elect to give a Skink the “Sprint” skill (a normal skill for a Skink)After Game 2, I elect to give a Saurus the “Break Tackle” skill (a normal skill for a Saurus)Tournament pointsPoints are achieved as follows:2 points for a win1 point for a draw0 points for a loss-4 points concessionPlayers on equal score will be separated by tiebreakers with the priority as follows:Strength of Schedule (the cumulative score of your opponents)NET TouchdownsNET CasualtiesTotal Touchdowns and casualties combined
