Hi all,
As the title says, I wanted to know if I would be able to learn mechanics and rules of the game by playing solo?

I don't have much free time at the moment a just wondered if that would be a viable way to play.

Any info and advice would be great.

I started by playing exclusively Bloodbowl Chaos Edition, followed by Bloodbowl 2 against the AI. I felt it was a great way to learn the ropes of the game. Bloodbowl 3 is the edition with the current rules with an AI, but I feel the game is still a ways behind. The AI, which in previous games was already bad, is now just horrible, and some of the game mechanics are very awkward or glitchy. All the same, if I were learning how to play for the first time I would be playing against the Bloodbowl 3 AI. I'd play through the little campaign thing to get the feel of how the game works.

Test mode on Fumbbl is a great way to figure out the client and try out how actions work. Also a good way to understand teams with odd rules like bomber, leap, or dodging with titchy things.

playtest on this site is the best way but Coach Buck is right, the solo campaigns in BB2 and BB3 is good fun. I honestly believe this is the best place to become very strong at bloodbowl. Andy Davo is great, look into Purplechest I believe he has a podcast and the bonehead podcast for more info.

I would not look at the bonehead podcast for anything game related. They aren't very good.

Davo on the other hand, is quite good and will talk through his thought process on stream if prompted. Occasionally plays fumbbl too

Oh I really like the Bonehead podcast. Davo is the best bloodbowl mind for sure.
