The lure of fumbbl



For various reasons (aesthetics, and not having a block of time at home of two hours guaranteed peace and quiet being the main ones), I've always steered clear of fumbbl. This week, however, the thirst for blood bowl was too strong and I've set up the World's Edge Wyverns as a team on there. I've even found time for two games, and won them both - it's almost like they know I'm new and so the dice program is giving me a free first hit of the Good Stuff. Nuffle be praised!

It has reminded me I'm rusty, though, particularly at the league play idea of ensuring SPPs are gathered by the right players, and that I should set up in case of a Blitz (which happened against me), and that fouling to clear the last player (ogre - all the other ogres and snots already gone) off the pitch on turn 16 is less important than scoring the 2nd TD - especially when you fail and get sent off!

Good stuff.

    1. (the playing while Mrs Rab watches something I'm not interested in, not the losing all my games!)

  2. Ouch you knob! T16 fouling is un-excellent! Haven't used fumbling in 10 years. Maybe time for a return? :)

    1. In my defence (and I agree it would normally be knobby) it had been a funny game with fouls galore to our mutual amusement, and he was urging me to do it. It robbed me of the second TD, and that made him laugh - proper BB chaos! :)

    1. It's a good substitute when tabletop isn't available.
