Cal's Blood Bowl Highlights
Blood Bowl is a turn based game where fantasy "dungeon & dragons" type characters play football against each other. Each team get 8 turns per half. The computer game is based on the board game of the same name. The teams have many races: human, dwarves, elves, orcs, etc. Here are the list of teams:
Champions of Death - dead and undead: skeletons, vampires, mummies, ghouls
Darkside Cowboys - dark elves
Dwarf Giants - dwarves
Elfheim Eagles - high elves
Gouged Eye - orcs, trolls
Greenfield Grasshuggers - halflings, hobbits
Reikland Reavers - humans
Underworld Creepers - sewer rats, skaven
A team would earn money from winning games and this money could be used to hire/draft free agents. Like real-world football, many players get injured during a game of Blood Bowl. If you are lucky, you will kill an opponent's players.
The players can score only touchdowns worth 1 point; there are no field goals, safeties, or extra points. The basic stragedy of the game is simple: (1) on offense put the ball in the hands of the most agile, get fast players down field to catch a pass, run behind your strong blockers, running is safer than passing; (2) on defense just surround the player with the ball and try to jar it loose with your tougher players, also try to knock opposing players out of bounds because they suffer more lethal injuries.
I played several seasons as the undead team, "Champions of Death". Most of their players are slow and unskilled but because they were undead they could not be killed. Therefore I always had a full team. Here are my results:
