Critical Plays - Blood Bowl Team Manager

Blood Bowl is one of the most fun andd popular minature games you can play.  However, one would not think that a highly successful minis game can easily be turned into an equally fun and exciting card game?  That said, last year, Fantasy Flight Games attempted this, and in our opinion, pulled it off quite well!


Blood Bowl Team Manager The Card Game, puts you in control of your own team roster from one of several races in the warhammer universe.  There are humans, dwarves, orcs, trolls, skaven and more! You get to decide where your players impact the game, who tackles who, and who will become the season champion with the most fans!


Last year we did a Critical Review of the game and gave it an 8.5 (Crit) at the time.  Through the request of a fan, we're back to provide you a Critical Play through of the game, highlighting the first round of the game between the Dwarves and the Skaven.  Enjoy!

    Great video guys, you described the gameplay really well, there were just a few minor rules issues though.

    You dealt too many highlights for a 2 player game (should be equal to the number of players), although this did demonstrate the sorts of choices that players need to make. The balls star power doesn't factor in when resolving a tackle only when resolving scoring. Knocked over players still count when resolving zone payouts.

    Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, we made a comment about that on the youtube page... I'm not a fan of the 2 player rules in the rule book so we do like to play a longer season but you are right if you want to stick to the suggested playstyle, it's less headlines.

    Funny, for as long as I've played this, never knew downed players counted, we've always played as they don't for some unbeknownst reason :)

    Thanks, glad you like it! Hoping to do may more! Any particular games you'd be interested in seeing in this manner?
