Hi all, I'm ancient and new at the same time.

Used to play BB tabletop until careers, marriages, houses, kids (or nurglings) happened to my mates and me. Then the 2016 edition was released, and everyone said 'we should totes do this' And then nobody did anything. And then someone bought the box set, and then Nurgle were released, and then everyone bought new teams again and started playing BB again. Occasionally, on account of wives, children, careers.

That's why I want to go here to get my kicks Smile

I've played Norse a ton (and have seen many iterations of that team, including with Huscarls and with four blitzers and a minotaur), but Nurgle barely (<20 games). Risk-taker, greed-blocker, overworked, underslept, so a nice opponent to get SPPs against Smile

I'm old as dirt, as you may have gathered. Too daft and lazy for computer things too. Where can I try get everything running without starting an actual game?


Edit: top of the page, so it's all very official

Welcome! If you go to games->current games you can click to spectate one. To make sure Java works.

Okay I've really got questionable computer skills lol.

garyt1, is my browser supposed to download some weird extension file when I click spectate?

Depends Smile

The game client that fumbbl uses is java based and you need to have java installed in order to play. You can spectate from in browser using this link and cclicking the spectate button https://fumbbl.com/p/phaserapp

Once you have java installed and associate the game client with java then it should auto open when you press spectate.

If it's trying to get you to download some other file then I'd suggest a virus scan Smile

And welcome to fumbbl. Make yourself at home. There's BB to suit all types available

If it's downloading the .jnlp file and not replaying it then make sure to check that javaws.exe is opening the file (java web start) Usually this is done by right clicking on the file and making sure it's set properly.
