      Looks like Warcraft/Lord of the Rings meets football.

          It's actually, literally, Warhammer Football. As in, you take the races from Warhammer Fantasy and they hike, pass, and murder each other. Complete with terrifying ork cheerleaders.

            I have the board game. There was an old dos game, but it was buggy and sucked. This looks GOOOOOOD

            Different teams by race.
            In the board game, the characters increase stats as they earn experience. You earn money by game and can hire cheerleaders, team wizards, etc... It was pretty cool.

                It is set in warcraft world, same races etc..

                I can only describe the board game. Not sure exactly how the computer game would play out.

                give us more of what we want to see!

                  You have to keep in mind, the first Warcraft game was supposed to be a Warhammer game, but Blizzard couldn't get licensing rights to the Warhammer IP. Warhammer and Warcraft look the same because, more or less, they are the same thing, with Blizzard having changed just enough to avoid a copyright lawsuit.

                  That said, do you have anything against a WoW football? Haven't you always wished that Tauren had a 'punt gnome/dwarf/goblin' button?

                    Warcraft football? Isn't that called Warsong Gulch?

                    (For those not familiar with WoW, WSG is a game-within-the-game with a capture-the-flag game type. There are also several other FPS-like games in WoW with different rulesets. For example, Arathi Basin is WoW's Battlefield Conquest game type.)

                      What? Warsong Gulch is for wussies! You can't bribe the ref, or have a treeman stomp on your skull. BLOOD BOWL is a MAN'S/ORC'S/DWARF'S/GOBLIN'S/LIZARDMAN'S/UNDEAD'S/ETC'S GAME!

                        Re: Blood Bowl

                        Indeed Blood Bowl is an awesome strategy game, dont let the apparent goofiness of it fool you. I am a very long time player of Blood Bowl and highly recommend it.

                        To get a feel for the game you can play a java version for free against hundreds of other players on FUMBBL. And the rules are free to download from the blood bowl main site.

                        The game being pointed out in the OP of this thread is a newer version with all the whammydyne graphics etc that are expected in a modern game, but it seems they are remaining true to the board game rules as well.

                        If you are on Fumbbl feel free to look me up, my coach name there is BlackBart :)

                          Re: Blood Bowl

                          So, Blood bowl is out via Nexway (Direct Download out of Europe) and will be available retail and via Steam come September. I bought it because I have no patience, and I'm glad I did.

                          If you're fans of the tabletop game at all, BB is pure awesome. If you're not familiar with the tabletop game at all, there is a rather steep learning curve and you have to get yourself into the mindset of bloodbowl, which is that your players are all going to die and you're going to lose ;)

                          I had no problems with the download company, and it may be possible to link the CD-key to steam later.

                          If anybody wants to crush me in a game, Feel free to drop me a line through any of the IM's I've got listed in my profile.

                            OMG _ there used to be a game similar to this in the '80s that I used to play in the arcades! Blood everywhere! (of course 2D graphics and all that) Can't remeber the name, but it was hilarious.
                            I got yer Dancing With the F**&ing Stars right here!!

                              Yeah, there was a game called Chaos Somethingorother that was based off BB for Arcade/Sega Genesis. Had little clouds when two dudes got into a scruff as I recall. I probably still have a copy laying around somewhere.
