    Question for people, does anyone else have Blood Bowl for the PC? (either edition)

    For those who don't know what Blood Bowl is, its one of Games Workshop's best selling / most popular boardgames ever. Its basically American Football but with the races from WFB. Cyanide Productions ( released the first PC game back in 2009 followed by Legacy Edition.

    I don't own it, but I have played it.

    It is absolutely excellent.

    I own it, but its not installed at tbh, I didn't buy it off Steam so I have no idea where I bought it from and would probably need to buy it again.

    I have played it and it was okay, nothing special though.

    Original board game was better imo.

    Anyone care to elaborate, so far as someone who's never played it I have nothing to go on except Allstar thinks its excellent, Doodle thinks its crap and Aspira thinks its ok (and KC makes the mistake of going on Aspira's recommendations)

    Would be interested in seeing reasons for picking this up or avoiding it.

    Fizzee - AI was retarded, content got very samey very fast and the multiplayer was laggy.

    It was a really good game, but lacked long term replayability. If you can buy it for 15 quid or less, then I would say it would be worth buying just so you can try it. Anymore than 15 quid, not worth it.

    Not knowing the rules of american football and having no real interest in that sport what so ever did not help my cause... its warhammer thats why i bought it but i wish it was something else than it is :(

    I have it and I love it, DarkElves ftw...

    It is American Football but ultra violence, I tend to have phases when I play it quite a lot.

    This game would be awesome if it was like MMO style where you played as one guy and joined a team and you battled guild vs guild controlling one dude.

    Actually.... it would just end up with nobody playing bloodbowl and just a huge killfest wouldn't it.... then again, is that a bad thing?

    I still have my original boxed bloodbowl with teams I painted myself. Same as spacehulk these games were always best on the floor with miniatures than on a PC or console.
