  • fumbbl! (Online Blood Bowl)

    I was talking to Mirf last night about the successes of the racing league, and that led on to a discussion of websites that help support games. This immediately made me think of this website http://fumbbl.com which I first encountered over 4 years ago, and is still going strong.


    fumbbl is a website that manages online Blood Bowl teams. Blood Bowl is a sort of fantasy American Football game, where Orcs can play Elves to see who can score the most touchdowns and win the game. However in true fantasy style things can get a bit more brutal than that! Throwing a block at your opponent could leave him in any condition from temporarily on his back to dead! Whereas Elves will play a more skillful passing game, big hitting teams such as Orcs will generally just romp their way up the pitch killing anything they see before them and walking the ball over the line.


    The game is available for free download, and is patched regularly to keep up to date with the latest rules. It is java based so is a stable platform. You make a team up on the website, and then the client links into the website to get your team roster. At the end of the game you upload a results file which confirms the result and updates your team, ready for you to use in your next game!

    Even better the rules are open as well!

    Just download the rulebook. The fumbbl client takes most of it into account but you should read the rules as it'll make a lot of things clear - and you'll need it for reference when your players get enough start points to accumulate skills.

    If anyone is interested post below with your team name and I'll make a TG group so we can track everyone's progress.

    I'll play an Undead team I think...

        Yeah, way back (mid-90s) my brother and I and a bunch of mates at school ran a league of the tabletop version that was lots of fun. Actually, I still have (most of) my team. I'll have to nerd out and post a photo of them later. :D

        Signed up as Maus, btw. Can we set up a TG-only league, do you know?

        edit: set up a team in the Unranked section: http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=te...team_id=298529

          ywp, if we all made an unranked team I'll set us up a TG group and invite TG people to it. It's not strictly a league so there is not commitment or standard schedule, the team position is just a reflection of how well you're doing. A structured season, although rewarding, is probably much to difficult to do unless there was a huge demand.

            That's a pretty fun game to play. I tried it out yesterday and lost to myself.
