Crashes are rare.

If you like NAF style games and want to support a good cause then have a look at this.

I freely admit I am new to Blood Bowl, though far less new to table top gaming and wargames.

Long story short GW has a mess with 40k right now and I decided to take a break and try some new things and have fallen in love with the game. I honestly can't believe I never looked at this game before.

The community as a whole has proven to be pretty awesome and I've seen more heart and soul in people's teams than I have in GW's more mainline games for some time, so I've been happier than a pig wallowing in mud since I've started diving into the game.

Now if I could just shake this niggling urge to play Stunty like a sane person I'd probably be all set!

Head over to this website to find out about most common pets students usually keep in their dorms. Hamsters or Guinea pigs? What pet would you pick for yourself?

Recently returned player. Signed up recently to the 145 club. Been playing pretty much since the 2016 game hit.

Good for Blood Bowl newbies, and those who know the game but want to get used to it specifically on Fumbbl.

New player here, can someone tell me otherwise, but it seems the system chooses a team it wants to win when a game starts?? I have been on the receiving end of both sides of the system. When a game starts you can normally tell by about turn 3 which way it's going to go.

Games can be decided early on by several casualties or a sack and steal but the "system" is completely random.

Player skill take a advantage of positioning, mistakes and favourable dice. There's no bias.

Welcome BTW. Can I suggest the link posted above your comment as a really great place to learn.

Nuffle decides which way the game will go... on tabletop with physical dice or on FUMBBL. But remember, Nuffle will give the nod to the more skilled coach... so it's certainly worth attempting to fool Nuffle by demonstrating your most favorable positioning and making no mistakes!

(The random number generator (RNG) on FUMBBL is like any other RNG... sometimes you'll get favorable dice... sometimes your opponent does. Sometimes you both do, and most amusing of all... sometimes you both don't! But that'll happen on tabletop and on the computer. Still my favorite overheard quote was a coach during a tabletop tournament with physical dice complaining that his dice rolls were 'statistically impossible' because he'd rolled several failures. Something that wasn't even below 1% probability. Around here, we have badges for things like rolling six skulls on a single block (1:46656 - not counting difficulties of getting three block dice and using a reroll!)

If you've been getting to experience both sides of Nuffle's whims, I'd say you're pretty lucky. There are folks who like discussing how Nuffle has been punishing them. Smile

And, yeah... I'd double down on jdm's suggested link... and not just to learn Blood Bowl, but to learn your way around FUMBBL. There's a few quirks (but some of those quirks are really friendly!) and it isn't always obvious how to join in all the fun. 145 Club is a great way to learn your way around.

Oh... and don't forget to check out the Thousand Losses Playbook -- Think of it as the mystic tome, useful in getting Nuffle take your side.

Hi guys: I stopped playing on Fumbbl (or actually: at all) around 10 years ago. Now I'd like to recheck all this. What thread should I read on what to download etc? Thanks!

Hey all.

I played a bit of fumbbl and the board game ages ago but had forgotten most of it by now. It is slowly getting back to me now that I've got a few games under my belt again.

Am I right in assuming the blackbox and the leagues are the main thing now? I don't see that many ranked matches being played. How are the overall player numbers compared to 10-15 years ago (which was probably the golden age of fumbbl?)?

What's up y'all. Got referred to this by Reddit. This is my first go round, I've played a little bit of BB2 on PS4 (just beat the Gouged Eye). I'm mostly going to be lurking and building my team based on matches I see. Shout out the homie Amsfeld from Reddit!
