I originally played this game in the 1st edition (cardboard cut outs!), also the 2nd, returned after finding the Cyanide game on PC. After a while I appreciated the extra stuff you get on FUMBBL so here I am...
I'm often unavailable due to work and other commitments, so I have to treasure the occasional game! This is a great shame as Nuffle came to me in a dream and said I would win a Grand Slam of Majors :( To those of you who are interested he looks a bit like John Madden, except for the two heads. And fur. Oh and he's green. Maybe one day I'll have the time and a high tv team to fulfil my destiny ;)
Edit 7/12/13: Well, I just got to my first Major final, the FUMMBL Cup, and lost it in Overtime. On my opponent's last turn in normal time, I had ~ 68% chance of winning it (including overtime roll, assuming the toss would decide it). Ouch. So guess either a) there's another God and he's annoyed with me (sorry God. I do play wood elfs a lot too, and anyway lots of coaches have won with these devil-things?), or b) Nuffle is a git.
I'm a big skaven and wood elf fan, also like other agi teams. Think it's the buzz of 'will I score an amazing touchdown'/ 'get squashed into jelly'. I therefore like the tactical side and can take my time moving - though I do respect the 4 min rule. I also like the variety of strategies in the game, e.g. agility vs bash is always interesting. However I dislike ClawPOMB when overused, which I think is boring, and a bit overpowered in long leagues (although not in other formats. Just boring sometimes when every other coach is playing the same one-trick tactic. Yawn). Still, nothing is better than beating a boring ClawPOMB squad with a few surviving elfs/skaven!
Another thing I like is teams with some thought and background behind them (hence a lot of fluff on my teams!). Yes you shouldn't get too attached to your players - especially skaven and elfs - but it can add to the fun and humour behind Blood Bowl.
Best/most disturbing quote heard online so far:
