Blood Bowl: Winter League

Blood Bowl is back, and we have our Winter League scheduled to help you get some games in right away!

When: The Winter League begins on November 26th

Entry Fee: FREE

How it Works:

Players submit their team to Black Knight Games, and we add it to the BKBBL Winter League online tracker, at BKBBL.COM

Then players are able to play and schedule games with anyone else in the league, as much as they would like!  Players track their games on the site which helps everyone update their rosters, keeping skills, upgrades, purchases, and injuries sorted out.

Players looking to find opponents can either drop by the shop in hopes of finding a pick-up game, or they can search opponents on our BKBBL Facebook group!

Blood Bowl is a great game, but it really excels when you are able to advance your team from game to game, acquiring new skills, injuries, and new players to replace the…less living ones…  So join up for our Winter League and get the most out of your team!
