Red Shirt Riot - Blitz Bowl/Street Bowl tournaments

Event Calendar

Event details

Come join us for our second combined Blitz Bowl and Street Bowl tournaments, Red Shirt Riot. Emerging from the mean streets of The Empire isn't easy, and Blood Bowl is a common route to glory and riches. If they have the right amount of drive, work ethic and luck, young players are often the Blood Bowl stars of tomorrow. Regardless if these players start with illegal, unsanctioned games in the streets, or through more official avenues like the Blitz Bowl Crush, the ultimate goal is to make a professional roster. 

Join us at the Ordo Fanaticus clubhouse for a casual combination Blitz Bowl and Street Bowl tournament event. There is no charge to attend, but players are expected to participate in both events. These tournaments are open to players of all skill levels, and we very much welcome casual players or people that don't play Blood Bowl. We need a minimum of six players, and will cap at ten. I am playing, so I am looking for someone to offer to hang out and admin.

Blitz Bowl will begin at 10am. Games will last 50mins. Coaches may choose any of the standard boxed teams, or the Dark Elves from White Dwarf. If you choose Dark Elves, you must supply your own cards. We will play three games (schedule below), and acknowledge the Overall Champion, and Most Points Scored. Scoring mechanism is shown below. All Challenge decks will include two new cards, one standard and one Endgame, both custom made by SpecialPlayCards.com. Want to learn more? Watch this video.

  • Touchdowns are worth four points
  • Challenge card - Show Us A Completion worth two points 
  • Endgame Challenge card - Make A Risky Throw worth three points
  • *NEW 8/25/2019* Chaos Chosen Blocker special rule change:
    • Indomitable: The player cannot be Knocked Down. If they would be, make an Armour check for them - if it is passed, they remain standing. If they had possession of the ball, it will scatter from their square as if they had been Knocked Down. If the Armour check is failed, they are injured.
