Hey guys, recently got the Bloodbowl rulebook and am reading through it, interested in playing a few games and seeing if I like it then maybe starting a league here. The rules seem fairly well presented overall and fairly easy to follow, I have a small question though. Obviously, since I got the rulebook from the GW website, I have no block dice. There are 5 results on the block table, but it is a 6 sided dice. If I want to just use a d6 instead of the block dice, which result is there two of? And are the two results opposite each other on the block dice or next to each other?
Edit: Just remembered, I need to know the length of the ruler used for quick/short/long pass, how many squares long is each pass? I think that is all, and I can do the rest without templates.. Unless I'm missing something else?
The push result is the double and they are on opposite sides of the die. If you check out the specialist games website I think there is a diagram there someplace that shows the range to different squares, or maybe I remember it from some other website. Google search should get it for you if you can do some searching.
Thats exactly the kind of sheet I wanted! Thanks mate. I did find a pretty similar one this morning on a different site, but the GW one is probably better.
I think thats all I need to have a few trial games. I've got the board size and dimensions, the rest seems fairly straight forward.
what would the board size be and dimensions? I also have just the book and want to build a field, but i want to make a permanent one and would like the sizaes. thanks

Actual board size is , in my opinion different.
I went online, found some sample BB boards, and counted the squares per side...then, using the 1 inch x 1 inch rule, found the size of the pitch itself. then anything outside the pitch ( reserves, koed and dead box, the turn counters, the down counters, etc.) those can be up to any size you want. I put mine on a 3'x 4' board, to give extra room on the sides for cool cheerleaders, custom deathrollas, Wizard tower ( to represent free agents) and a huge eyeball with referee pants (to symbolize the ref)
plus my KO and Reserve boxes have small walls around them, to prevent miniatures from rolling of board.
Find an internet example of a pitch..count the squares:
1/2 Length per side
Size of middle zone
Size of side zones
Size of endzone (i added two more squares so team names could be put in the endzones.)
Rome wasn't built in a day, Either should good scenery.
I think there is a standard number of squares for the board... I have no idea how acceptable or balanced it is to differ from standard. As to actual board size, anything as long as 20mm bases will fit in the squares. The size I found and made is:
sides - 4 across
end zone - 1
If you look at the chart that replaces the range ruler it shows the dimensions of the board and how big each zone is..
The squares on a Blood Bowl pitch are 2.89 x 2.89 centimeters, to be exact.
If you have a different size then those, it's indeed best to use the table, as the range ruler will give very different results then.
