When did asking questions about a game that someone is running become moaning?

Simple mate, the way the question is asked in this case your question came across as rather snarky I'm afraid.

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?


This read as '' you don't know what your talking about and I know better''.

If you didn't mean it that way then all is good, it's not the first time I wrong heh just ask the wife.

I really didn't mean it that way. It's just so many years since I played LRB5, that I can't remember what the differences are.

Well, I for one will not be playing any. I love the idea of BB but the game is SO dull and takes ages! I dont know how you get through 3 game sin that many hours chico, games I play all take over 2 hours!

NOW THATS WHAT YOU CALL A MOAN!

However, to inject a little positivity, I have a custom board that I am happy to donate, plus moulds for balls, markers and dice. SO if anyone wants custom dice, markers or balls let me know!

Well I don't mind which edition we use since in my experience wargames rules for games at shows are much like languages. Take French for example. You can argue about whether we should speak modern french or medieval but there will still be guys like me asking for dos cerveza por favor. As long as there's the opportunity to field a team of halflings with childishly crude names for each player I will be happy. They are almost certainly all going to get horribly mangled so the exact rules mechanism of how that happens isn't really important.

@ramshackle_curtis - you've clearly been playing the wrong form of Blood Bowl mate ;) I find it to be the most entertaining and fast paced game I've played - I certainly enjoy it more than any other GW game :P

@Chico - 3 games in 4 hours is insanely fast! At the various tournaments I've been to, and at my league, 2 hours is the minimum, and I consider myself a pretty fast player (unless it's all going horribly wrong!).

But gaming over beer is certainly a fine idea :)

It's all good Mr Snicks

Didn't thing 3 games in 4 is that quick, it's stand alone starting teams so not that many skills to remember compared to league games. But I do think what made them fast is the ruling (If you can call it that) to play fun so lots of risky actions so therefore turnovers and no sitting in the endzone caging the ball ect which bogs a game down as you spend alot of time working out how to bush open the cage and end up dull.

The Weekend has 27 Gaming hours at Foundry and another couple (Or more) at the pub,should be plenty to play 4 or 5 BB games and fit in all the other games. Not sure we'll get more then 4/5 people (Not including myself) interested as well to be honest.

I will get some packs of dice, balls and markers cast up then. I am happy to post for the cost of postage or keep until the day. I also have 2 teams which I am willing to bring or sell, an orc team made from plastic first editon space orcs and a wood elf team made from my own mutant plants.

That's great RCI'd love a set of Dice/Tokens/balls, do you have any pictures?

A set would also make a nice giveaway prize to the most sporting player (Voted by all the players) to help negate the tournyment feel to boot :)
