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.
