Blood bowl team manager and its a card game, how is that possible?

Well thanks to Fantasy Flight it is and a great game to boot.

Those of us of a certain age remember blood bowl when it first came out, and how long it took to set up, the squabbles over rules, the sheer fun of playing and wishing it could be quicker and easier. Well now it is. FF have taking the spirit of blood bowl and all its madness and mayhem and made it just as much fun as the board/minatures game without the hassle.

Mechanics of the game are simple, stratergy is there especially with more than 2 players and its a quick and dirty game. You will not be sitting round quietly while playing this and you wont be sitting round getting bored waiting for others to take thier turn. The longest part of the game is adding up the scores and this takes seconds.

The game plays differently if you 2,3 or 4 players and that gives it a replayabilty value that many games miss.

Artwork on the cards is good and the components are first class what more can you ask for.

This is a cracking game to play, easy to learn and fun as well. Now plenty of games say that they are these things and as we all know they lie, but this game is these things.

The art of the cards sums up just what you are getting an irreverant game that pokes fun at all the serious fantasy card games that are on the market. Now there is nothing wrong with the serious card games out there, I enkoy them as much as anyone. However if you want a game that isnt going to task the grey matter too much (if at all)fancy reading out some insane spells and being mean and smashing your opponents all at the same time then this is the game to consider.

A word of warning though, for some reason the designers have used an awful lot of bad language and I mean serious bad language in the rule book. Not in the actual how to play section itself, but in the introduction and there is no need for it. In my opinion its not clever and its not even funny.

The game itself has cards with cartoon violence on it, but that is no problem to me. We all know that its cartoon violence its a cartoon. Some have got sniffy at the cards but I dont worry about that, the humour for the most part is simple but fun. Now that works for me, but may not be everyones cup of tea if your looking to play with young children.

The mechanics of the game are simple and while there is an element of strategy it isnt realy that big a thing and anyone over the age of 8 could grasp how to play in minutes.

All in all a real fun game only spoiled by the bad language in the handbook, and why they have to write like so kind of surfer dude is beyond me. Its a game I want to know what its about not that your trying to be hip and trendy, so cut it out and get back to real English please. Whinge over, sorry.

Buy it! enjoy it! ignore the stupid language.
