Round Table Games' Blood Bowl League

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Round Table Games Blood Bowl League

 

Round Table Games’ Chris Z will act as League coordinator and final arbiter.

We will be using the 2020 rules

 

Only official Games Workshop miniatures are allowed (although they can be customized).

If a Star Player is drafted and is not a Ogre, Treeman or Troll, any mini can be used to represent that Star Player, until/ unless GW makes minis for them.

If you have a team on order through us you may proxy that team with no penalty until it arrives.

There will be only 1 division until we reach 8 active teams, at which time we will split into equal sized divisions of at least 4 teams each.

 

Each Round is 1 week long.  During that week you must play a game against a designated team.  Failure to do so results in a loss for both teams.  Team match-ups will be determined randomly among those coach's teams that have not yet played each other..

 

The regular season consists of each active team playing each other team twice in regular season play.  Each game is called a fixture.

 

We will then have play-offs (quarter-finals if necessary, semi-finals and the final Cup game) between the top ranked teams.

A week’s play fee is determined by your Noble status (anywhere from $10 down to free); see here

You can coach more than 1 team in a season but the league fees are per team and you would have additional games to play or your teams may take losses.  Additional teams will only be allowed if we have enough unique coaches to allow for the match-ups.

If you buy an issue of Spike!, team dice set, play cards, big guy;  you get 1 week free league play.

If you buy a team or a pitch you get 2 weeks free league play.

If you buy a Rulebook you get 3 weeks free league play

If you buy a full game you get 9 weeks free league play.

Purchases considered are for current BloodBowl products only, but following that restriction, (purchases made prior to joining the league can apply, as long as they are no more than 3 months old).  

These free weeks can stack up, but once you join the league the clock starts ticking and the weeks start being used.

 

You can have access to special rules in Spike! Magazine if you have purchased a copy of that issue.

 

Knights of the Inner Circle can have access to the special rules in all Spike! Magazines (we have copies in our library)

 

Knights of the Inner Circle also get a free team re-roll for each game.

 

If you purchased your official Blood Bowl Team from us you get 1 additional team re-roll per game.

 

Official Blood Bowl models that are fully painted and based get 1 re-roll on the Casualty table.

Goblin Team

Halfling Team

Ogre Team

Snotling Team

 

We will have a rotating tournament schedule.  After a tournament award is won, the winning team gets that benefit until that tournament comes up again in the rotation.  Once a tournament champion has been named, we move on to the next tournament season.

A Re-Draft Cap Budget of 1,300,000 will be in place to avoid run-away seasons.
