Blood Bowl

Games Workshop is releasing a new edition of their extremely popular Blood Bowl on November 24th for $99.99. This new edition comes in an all-you-need-to-play box containing:

  • 12 colored plastic, push-fit human players (2 x Blitzers, 2 x Throwers, 2 x Catchers, 6 x Linemen) plus balls and counters.
  • 12 colored plastic, push-fit orc players (2 x Black Orc Blockers, 2 x Blitzers, 2 x Throwers, 6 x Linemen) plus balls and counters.
  • 56 page rule book.
  • Double-sided fold-out card pitch (human on one side, orc on the other).
  • Two double-sided card dugouts (human on one side, orc on the other).
  • Two sets of special Blood Bowl dice (one blue for the humans, one green for the orcs).
  • Plastic template set (range ruler, scatter template and throwing template).
  • Card deck, containing Special Play cards, four Star Player and player reference cards.
  • Decal sheet, containing numbers as well as human and orc symbols.
  • Two double-sided rules reference sheets.

Their hopes are to gain a new audience with the easy-to-assemble minis and complete package set.

Of course, being Blood Bowl, you know they’ll be tons of teams, extra minis, and available supporting purchases that will follow soon enough.

While I’m super excited about this, I wonder if I really need this in my collection, having both Dreadball and Guildball already.
