Blood Bowl 3

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Blood Bowl 3 is the latest video game adaptation of the long-running Warhammer fantasy tabletop game, Blood Bowl. It combines American football, turn-based tactics, lots of violence, and a dice god (Nuffle) out for blood into one glorious sports game. I’ve grown tired of most turn-based strategy games in recent years which I used to enjoy (i.e. XCOM-likes, Advance Wars-likes), and I could care less about sports IRL, but Blood Bowl managed to suck me in despite all that for over 400 hours with Blood Bowl 2. From my experience, I’d say it’s 50% skill and 50% luck, and it can be quite the love-hate relationship. As is the nature of dice games, the dice can really screw you over but man it is oh so satisfying when the dice come through when, for example, you need to pull off a miracle pass to tie or win, or you knock down a particularly powerful player on your opponent's team and they fail the armor roll and roll death for the injury.


Blood Bowl does have a bit of a learning curve, but there’s plenty of text and video guides online, such as thishttps://bbtactics.com/ is a source I’ve been using regularly since I got into Blood Bowl about 4 years ago now and contains a lot of helpful info about each of the many teams to choose from. However, at the time of OP, it isn’t fully updated to reflect the newest ruleset which Blood Bowl 3 will be using. 


Here’s the reveal trailer as well as the 12 starting teams in Blood Bowl 3. The game is scheduled to release early this year with the beta starting hopefully soon. I’ll try to keep this updated as more news for it comes out. Hope to see some of y’all on the pitch! 🙂


EDIT 2/9/21: Blood Bowl 3 has been delayed to August 2021 (https://www.psu.com/news/blood-bowl-3-for-ps5-and-ps4-receives-a-new-super-bowl-inspired-trailer-and-a-delay-to-august-2021/#:~:text=Nacon has released a brand,August 2021 from Early 2021.😢

      It has been 20 years.. wow. I was 5 when the towers fell, but my dad was in Lansing on a job site and they locked down the city (they did that with several of the state capital cities upon further research). My mom couldn't get ahold of him all day, which on a day of shock and unknowns is very scary. While I do not have much memory, I spend time each year watching the saved coverage of the attacks as well as the name readings.
