Yeah, you heard me...
Sweet! They are making the only specialist game that I refuse to look over the rules for because it looks so silly. Where is my BFG game?!
Nice find though.

Not like it's a new thing. There was one Blood Bowl PC game already, way back in the early 90's
What was that all about? Blood Bowl is not silly. In fact it is one of the better games that Games Workshop have released. The real problem BloodBowl faced was that once you had purchased a team or two there was little or no commercial value left in it for the company. When you collect Blood Angels you will buy bits a pieces here and there to add to your collection. Once you have 25 or so players to choose from you are pretty much done when it comes to Blood Bowl so the game inevitably got shelved in favour of more profitable lines like Warhammer and 40K.
But there is nothing wrong with the game itself. The mechanics are very good, with a set of rules that is very easy to learn and quite tough to master. The teams managed to be very different without destroying the competitive nature and the fluff was some of the best GW have ever produced.
This game is anything but silly, and yes there was a video game developed but it is so old now that most of use would consider it comparable to Pong in terms of quality.
Oh and in case you are wondering I played Dark Elves, The Naggaroth Nightmares if anyone remembers them.
Blood Bowl was certainly more lighthearted than straight WH or 40k but in those days, it all was.
But you are right, BB was more of a board game, and so the variety, add ons etc weren't as commercially profitable as the core subset. Like Hero quest (which i love), it doesn't do that well on expansion. See the current Apocalypse, try that with BB! 8X

ive never played blood bowl but ive heard it is a light hearted barrel of laughs, wich is needed these days as all my mates in warhammer are powergamers and way to competitive.
also Jon Quixote, i too love hero quest, have you tried warhammer quest? it is just as fun i assure you =]
