This Month in Blood Bowl – September 2020

Welcome to the September This Month in Blood Bowl blog. Another busy month with lots of online gaming, a tabletop NAF Major tournament and plenty of new Blood Bowl related stuff!

We have added a Blood Bowl Podcast index this month listing all of the Blood Bowl listening goodness from all your favourite podcasts…

Enjoy!

Chaos Cup Result – Chicago, USA

Almost 50 coaches battled it out for the Blood Bowl Chaos Cup in Chicago, USA. Due to ongoing travel restrictions this popular event was not as highly attended as in the past. But it is great to see some top tabletop action returning in a safe way for all those taking part.

William Mayo clawed, battered and snuck his way to the top of the pile to take the converted title with his Chaos Dwarf. Congrats to William for taking the first NAF tabletop major of the year.

To see an interview with the winner, check out the link below where William is interviewed by Scott Prime (of Both Down Podcast fame) from Geekforcegeek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-st13rENejo

The second, Death On The Pitch – Extra Time is another re-release. This time of the Death On The Pitch – A Blood Bowl Anthology book which was original released back in 2018. However this new edition includes two new stories.

Both are set for release on 10th December 2020. A possible hint at the release date of the new Blood Bowl Edition from Games Workshop perhaps? We shall see…
