Excerpt: In my macrocosm of geekdom, I have actually played, or tried to play, the original board game version of Blood Bowl . It is not a light, fluffy game by any stretch of the imagination. It is a very rule-intensive and dice roll-intensive experience.

Excerpt: Blood Bowl est le résultat d'une union contre-nature : celle du football américain et de l'Heroic Fantasy.

À l'origine, Blood Bowl est un jeu de plateau, créé en 1987 par Jervis Johnson pour le compte de la société Games Workshop.
