I absolutely love the game. Tremendous fun. They've done a magnificent job of converting the original Blood Bowl into a card game form, as you say. I can't wait to get my hands on the Sudden Death expansion!

The original Games Workshop board game from the 80's was a lot of fun athough took a while to play IIRC. I understand that it still has a strong cult following.
I still have all my old Blood Bowl board game stuff including quite a few teams but I don't think I've played it in nearly twenty years. The Team Manager card game is enough to scratch my Blood Bowl itch!

I do! Actually, I run a league here in Omaha at the Dragon's Lair! We switched over to the card game due to the fact that teams are only available through mail order (figure wise...not counting using converted Warhammer figures) and GW has been on a seems-like daily price hike!
yeah, the video game is only a few years old and is complete garbage and very buggy (especially if you try yo play someone overseas)...
I recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of football/rugby games!
I see the words "Blood Bowl" and "Card Game" and now I'm incredibly interested in this. My cousin and I used to play this game a lot when I was in middle school. He explained it to me as being a board game version of Mutant League Football. Would someone who hasn't played the board game in years be able to pick this up easily?
