From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Workshop revealed the contents for the 2020 edition of Blood Bowl on stream over the week-end. If you missed it, the recap is… there’s a lot in this box:
Each team has a good roster of players, including a star player for each team, along with an ogre for the humans, and a troll for the Black Orc team.
There’s the usual collection of dice and counters, plus what looks like the full game, league, and team rules in a single book. This was a notable omission from the 2016 boxed set.
I expect the box will be significantly more expensive this time around, and part of me wonders whether Games Workshop started with a price point, and then added content to the box to try and justify that rice. We’ll see, as price was not revealed.
The boxed set also comes with two unnecessary but cool miniatures – a pair of referees.
Referees in Blood Bowl have always been present, but in an abstract form. As far as I can tell, the models remain strictly optional, but it’s a nice inclusion.
You can see all the previews at Warhammer Community, and the previews cover games other than Blood Bowl, if you like that sort of thing.
