Just out of interest, why not CRP? It's an improvement over LRB 5.

Re: [BOYL15] Oldbowl 2015

I think I'm in agreement...CRP would be better if we're not going retro. I wonder if a tournament is viable given the potential scheduling headaches and guaranteed likelihood of lengthy Oldhammer games. I managed 2 games in a day last year...and that was tight! A Blood Bowl game is 2.5-3 hours, so 2 games is pretty much a full day.

I'm interested of course, but wonder if it might be more practical to have everyone play one game; with a winner determined by combined TD and Casualty. Just some thoughts :)

Re: [BOYL15] Oldbowl 2015

I'm happy to use CRP but what about having time limits on turns? It might make it possible to fit in more games and it can certainly make them entertainingly frenetic.

Re: [BOYL15] Oldbowl 2015

LRP5 in my opinion is the top of the food chain when it comes to rules sets for BB (Plus its what I play and I'm running everything hehe ;) ) I much rather play and run something I enjoy then jumping rulesets to one I don't enjoy as much not so fluid and make it feel like a chore.

2 Hours plus hours a game? wow you guys play slow, I just played 3 games in 4 hours tonight at my local club.

Anyway It will be spread over 3 days and nights (Pub Blood Bowl) and depending how many are interested its not that many games (4 maybe 5 at a push).

Re: [BOYL15] Oldbowl 2015

I can't make it this year, so how it's run won't affect me. However, I would say that the NAF (and GW when they used to run the GT) tourneys are LRB5 and allow two hours per game, with three games per day for a two day tournament. I've been to a few and it worked perfectly.

Aren't the actual rules for playing the game exactly the same between LRB5 and CRP? I thought the only thing they tweaked was to improve the balance of some of the team rosters?

But I guess if you enjoy LRB5 so much more then I must be missing some big changes (I normally am :P ). Any chance of a summary of them so I can decide whether I should start work on a new team? :)

Actually NAF tournaments use CRP, not LRB5

Re: [BOYL15] Oldbowl 2015

The biggest changes are the adding/allowing of Chaos Pact, Slann and Underworld teams and Team Costs changed for a half dozen or so players, plus a change to a few skills.

I'm sure there's a couple of other changes too but if I'm honest other then watching others play it and then moaning about it I'm very limited in the rules set 9Having played it once with woodies).

This forum has got far too moany at times peoples, no one moaned/questioned last year when I used Necromunda 2.0 rules instead of Community Edition for my Judge Dredd game and there wern't even any free toys for that one lol.

Now be happy this isn't a forced game, play or don't play but lets all just enjoy the many many beers :)
