On top of all that I received my “This Is Not A Test” Kickstarter this week. I’ve had just a few moments checking it out. Next time I’ll do a quick breakdown of what I picked up. I love Kickstarter stuff … sometimes you wait quite a long time for stuff – but it’s always good stuff. And with the time delay sometimes it’s a nice surprise waiting in the mailbox.
I’m beginning to feel the grind with this BloodBowl season. And my lack of playing this game regularly really shows. I’m thinking this will be the last league of BloodBowl I’ll be joining for awhile. One off games – sure. But league play really requires you to “know” the game. I simply don’t have the time to devote to BloodBowl. On top of that – their are so many other games I like to play… it would be hard to justify time to play more BloodBowl.
I say this now – but a new edition of BloodBowl is due out by the end of the year. Maybe a good human team will be a nice change?
Last Tuesday I got my 3rd week BloodBowl match in with my friend “Evil” Bryan and his team “Pork Belly”. His was a Gnoblars team. First time playing against a Gnoblar team … they are grabby and have ogres. It made me wonder again why can’t I have a troll in this Stunty league.
About midway through the first half I had moved from the left side and swung over to the right to try and outrun the ogres (whom hit really hard). This seemed to be going well until I left just too much of a gap in the ball carrier protection.
A Gnoblar blitzed in – knocking the ball loose and it bounced into the stands. The happy fans tossed it back on the pitch – but way down the wrong way lol.
I scrambled to get gobbos back on the ball – but before I could a slimy Gnoblar snatched it up…
This is where things start to go bad… I failed my rolls and two of my cheaters got caught. And with two rounds left in the half I was receiving again. At this point I also was running tight on players due to the ogre hits as well.
I received and did what I could – but to no avail. – time was to short and the half ended.
I kicked off for the second half …- and Pork Belly did well to kill time and slowly move the ball.
I made some key mistakes in this game and really lost sight of some of my special rules. I need to do some prep work before next game to get back into a better coaching mind.
INFINITY – to the surprise of the Sunday gaming group I showed up to play some infinity. They are on their second / or third week of a learn to play league. I’ve been wanting to come down… but the day conflicts with my normal Sunday home schedule. But this weekend I got lucky.
Infinity is a very crunchy rules game when compared to Dark-Age. It’s very rules dense and has lots of granular bits to learn to really get a handle on things. I know I’ll need lots of games to really figure out how to use my USAriadna.
