Picked up the Blood Bowl online game last week!
Anyone play? If so I highly recommend the computer game!
Folks have been bitching on the forums about bugs, but Ive seen none so far.
The game is programmed rather shabbily, lots of drop charts and back arrows, aside from that the game itself is just like 5.0 Blood Bowl and a blast to play!

Come join in the fun!

I'll be getting the 360 version when it drops in September. Sadly, my current home computing solutions are, well, "wanting."

I'll pick it up for the 360. My laptop is a bit too long in the tooth...

If only there were a mac version... I hate booting windows on my mac. I may give it a try.

Are you playing it turn-based? I am curious about the real-time.

From everything I've heard, the real-time is terrible. Someone compared it to trying to tell a bunch of chickens what to do, and then cutting their heads off and letting them run about. However, the turn-based mode tends to be spot on to the current ruleset.

Of course, this is all hearsay as I haven't played it yet.

I wont play real time. Only Turn Based. Im a big into Blood Bowl and love playing it table top, so I wouldnt insult the game by attempting to play it Real Time.

I don't know who you are, but I like the cut of your jib.

I was playing Blood Bowl back in the version one (PRE miniatures) days, so I was stoked when I read of it coming out as a video game!!! Looking through the web site last night, I see it's coming out for the XBOX360 ... often leary of exports from PC to console, can any of you PC players hint at what you think might be LOST? Real time would be like playing Madden, but cannot imagine it as BB NEVER stops ... not like in plays like our football ...

curious ...

Nothing lost in the game, just need a strong computer.
And the drop down menus are a bit annoying (there are lots of them on the league page, though not in game), aside from that game is great!
