Bloodbowl is a fantasy sports/football game with its own special set of rules.
Bloodbowl is where fantasy meets american football. Bloodbowl started as tabletop game by Games Workshop that parodied football in an alternate version of the vaunted Warhammer fantasy universe. The game consists of such fantasy stalwarts as goblins, dwarves, human warriors, elves, orcs, and, of course, ogres. However, early versions of the PC game did not consist of all the possible races. In fact, the first time I bought the game at Walmart, I recieved what is known as the Dark Elves Edition. More recently, I bought the best possible version known as the Chaos edition. This version includes all 23 races and is the latest version before Blood Bowl 2.
