At the New York Toy Fair, Games Workshop announced another introductory game last weekend called Blitz Bowl. Like Space Marine Adventures: Labyrinth of the Necrons, this game looks to be targeted more toward new-comers to the hobby.
On close examination of the picture, one can make out what looks to be a Skaven card. This makes me excited for the possibility that different teams will be released for the game. I would love a faster-playing version of Blood Bowl for game night tournaments and one-off games, with a variety of different teams to play.
Blitz Bowl is a new way to play Blood Bowl. The teams are smaller, the
games are faster but the action is just as intense, as each player seeks
to distinguish themselves in the eyes of Nuffle in the infamous Crush
recruitment rituals in fast-paced skirmish games.
