Blood Bowl is the adaptation of the famous Warhammer Fantasy football board game created by Games Workshop.
Assemble your team from among eight fantastic races* in the Warhammer universe (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves, Chaos, Lizardmen and Dark Elves). Each race has its own strengths, weaknesses and numerous opportunities to develop which will lend an immense tactical depth to the game.
Immerse yourself in single games in Solo Player mode to enjoy fun matches that won’t make your head hurt, or set off to conquer the Blood Bowl in the extensive Campaign mode. Develop your team and players by gaining victories and experience as you progress in the game.
In Multiplayer you can compete against a friend on your tablet in “Hotseat” mode, or launch yourself into the vast online world in a massive permanent league where you can create and develop your teams. Play against Blood Bowl players from all over the world thanks to our cross-platform multiplayer modes!
*The base game enables you to play Humans and Orcs: the other races are available from the in-game store.

Pretty good, could be better
Pretty faithful port of the board game. Folks familiar with the game may really come to like this one. Yeah, IAP is a bit annoying, but it's what you expect nowadays from games like these.
One request I'd really, really like to see done: please fix the randomizer. After having leveled up dozens of characters--in some cases to levels 5 and 6--I have only ever scored an ability increase once. I only scored a double ability once. Doubles should have a frequency of 1 in 6 (6 chances out of 36), and ability scores also 1 in 6 (there are 6 ways to roll 10 or greater, out of 36 possible rolls). To only have gotten 2 out of 40 to 50+ level advancements does seem a bit buggy...
Overall I am satisfied. Hopefully I'm not the only one who noticed this...
The game I was looking for
For years I looked for a turn-based football game that used all the players. I stumbled across Blood Bowl one day just poking around the App Store and just about fell out of my chair. This was it! I play it all the time. It's my favorite iPad game. It's really a fantasy mash-up of American football and rugby. It's a miniatures-based board game, so movement and dice are important. It's difficult in the beginning until you figure out the knack. There's a big chance element, but the strategy is in controlling chance: make your safe moves before doing things that require die rolls. As some point out, not the best AI, and the difficulty levels are suspect. But, if you're like me and have longed for a turn-based football game; this is it.
It is ok not great
I love the Warhammer world and Blood bowl is a great part of it but as far as this game goes I can't see myself playing it any more until they fix the Easy, Medium and Hard Level ranges. You start on any one of them and you are already way over matched by which ever team you go up against that you have no chance of winning. you have no way of starting on any type of even playing field in this game. You have to play forever to get your team leveled up to even begin to be even and then your over matched again because the other team now have even more skills than your team. Just not worth it in my opinion.
