BLOOOOOOOD BOOOOOOOOWL
Blood Bowl is a fantasy football video game incorporating both real-time[1] and turn-based strategy elements.[2] It is based on the board game of the same name, which was produced by Games Workshop under their Warhammer Fantasy label.

Basically, the best game ever

Oh yes and to clarify, you can play it either as a turn-based strategy game or real-time Madden deathmatch

    Except you can win a match by killing a certain amount of opposing players


    and there will probably be decapitations

    The Dwarves apparently have an insane defensive game but are pretty slow in moving the ball.

    The Lizardmen seem pretty balanced, with Skinks, Saurus and Kroxigor completing running, passing/blocking and killing everything respectively.

    By my reckoning it'll be

    Humans will be good all rounders
    Orcs (Orks?) will have insane offensive ability but lack any good defense.
    Dwarves, good in defense
    Lizardmen, Fast

    no i meant that orcs are so much physically larger than orcs that a physical competition between the two would be anything but

    same with lizards and dorfs

    there are also, apparently, elves

    and likely undead, although no sign of them so far

    I was thinking the inevitable High Elves v. Chaos update would show the Elves as the fast ones and Chaos as an entirely unpredictable team

    but Lizardmen are described as "savagely agile" so who knows.

    Yes we did.

    and you're going to be used as snack food for the Carnosaurs.

    Destroying people at this game was so satisfying.

    Double six oh dear looks like your favourite player that you earned a whole bunch of skills for over the last 6 months is fucking DEAD FOREVER. If only real sports were like that.

    Also you can apparently pimp out your team in single player with apothecaries and cheerleaders.

    and if your players survive they get better gear and skills just like the tabletop.

    No idea if it flows over to the multiplayer.

    That this game can be played turn-based is about the best news I've gotten since, well, the news that the game was even coming out.

    Really looking forward to this one.
