Ladies and GentleFumbblers, drum roll please....

In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Interweb underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as nerds of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if they can find their socks, maybe your Tournament can feature....

Team FUMBBL

They are:

PurpleChest
'Hannibal' PurpleChest captains the team. Rumour has it this was decided by girth. Key skills sarcasm and cynicism.

Malmir
'B.A.' Malmir is responsible for winning a lot, and saying 'I pitty the Fool' in a dry Middlesbrough accent.

Throweck
'Face' Throweck, vice captain and in charge of podcastness. Also responsible for flirting with someone half his age and looking weirdly orange.

mister__joshua
'Howling-Mad' mister__joshua fills the vital 'oh I'm John's mate' role beloved of stag do's. His specialism is in playing varied formats and his experience will be mined for tactical insights. He is looking hard at chainsaws, and lizzards. Also expected to stand the first round.


So we're off to York on January 12th and 13th 2019, to take part in this puppy:

The United Kingdom Team Challenge V

and we plan to represent.

(complex 90's rap influenced hand gesture image needed)

... FUMBBL. Christer has given us permission to travel under the FUMBBL brand. We will roll FUMBBL dice. We will bring glory to the land of FUMBBL, smite our enemies and hear the lamentation of their women.

Or get drunk, play some Blood Bowl, and then find reasons why we lost so bad. One or the other.

And that's where YOU come in. If you've read this far, you care, and that's sweet. Don't get all shy and deny it. You're on our side, you too are a FUMBBLer, So help!

What races should we be playing?
Is there a meta, what does that even mean?
What help support and advice can you offer?
As PeteW has deserted to selfishly play with son, if we draw them and one of us beats his 8 year old is it ok to leap to your feet and bellow out 'I am Godzilla, you are Japan!'?

And, do you want to come?

Rags recently blogged about the podcasts (soundcloud link) that myself, Throweck and Morehouse have been doing. Well, mainly Throweck, but me and Morehouse say stuff sometimes. And Rags was thinkign of coming to York, perhaps not realising that he would need to be ina team of 4. So anyone fancy going? We could certainly help/mentor/get drunk with another team from FUMBBL, if people wanted to come.



TLDR? take some caffeine using a delivery system of your choice, put on your big boy trousers and have a go.

It’s probably against the rules for all four of you to run 16 Snotlings, but I’m sure I can pull some strings... Wink

Looking forward to it!

Does the ruleset allow piling on?

Perhaps you could canvas the userbase on their opinions of piling on?

Also, Podcast the event somehow? Keep.up the good work!

Noice! (Or is that sweeeet?) I can't go to York but will be expecting to see you at the World Cup in Austria. You're gonna need six guys though so the whole A-Team theme will have to be expanded. Wink

LOL. I can actually hear Malmir saying "I pity the fool".

And as Thomas is now 9, all abuse is encouraged. It will make a man of him. However, there will probably be ~30 tables between our team and yours!

Win it for FUMBBL!
