Blood Bowl is Back! Full Launch Schedule

That’s right sports fans the great game of Blood Bowl is back – and back in a big way!  Despite the fact that GW hasn’t supported the game for over a decade, Blood Bowl has always been a popular game at Black Knight Games, with our tenth season (!) just wrapping up now.  But, now that the game is getting an amazing new edition, and will be supported front and center by Games Workshop, we expect very big things from Blood Bowl in the future here at BKG.
