NAF Tournament Info

This will be a NAF approved tournament. If you wish to receive limited edition yearly gift and have your tournament progress tracked, there will be a NAF official onsite accepting registration for the cost of $5/year. More information can be found at – Need to confirm that a NAF official will be there.


The time limit WILL be strictly enforced. You will receive ‘Time Remaining’ updates from the Tournament Organizer to help you stay on pace.
When time is called, you will play “even turns”. If you just started turn 7(for example), then you and your opponent each finish turn 7. If the inactive player has already played the current turn the game ends upon completion of the active player’s current turn.
If requested by one of the players after an hour has passed a chess clock may be used by an official to keep the game on pace.


Only GW, NAF, or Texas Block Dice will be allowed. You are required to share dice with your opponent if requested.


During each round, you will fill out a score sheet to track your progress. At the end of the match, you will add up the scoring as follows:

  • A WIN is worth 55pts
  • A DRAW is worth 25pts
  • A LOSS is worth 5pts
  • If you lose by 1 Touchdown, you earn +2 bonus pts
  • If you caused 1 more CAS from Blocking than opp you earn +2 bonus pts
  • If you caused 2 or more CAS from Blocking than opp you earn +5 bonus pts
  • If you clear the pitch you earn +5 bonus pts (Once per game)
  • If you won by 2 Touchdowns you earn +2 bonus pts
  • If you won by 3 or more Touchdowns you earn +5 bonus pts
  • If you finished the game by using all turns +3 bonus pts

There is a no championship game the standings will solely be determined by total points


There will be no overtime played. If your game ends in a draw, it’s draw.


The scoring system has been setup to hopefully get the most accurate representation of how everyone has performed. If, by chance there is a tie in Tournament points, the ties will be broken in this order:

  • Head to Head
  • Winning Percentage
  • TD Diff + Cas Diff
  • TD Diff
  • Rat Ogre Ball


All teams are expected to meet the minimum painted guidelines. They must have 3 colors on them and have had some attempt at making them appear finished.


We are here to enjoy the game of Blood Bowl. We expect good sportsmanship. Note that:
Fouling 16 turns in a row and running up the score is not poor sportsmanship, but gloating and ridiculing your opponent while doing so is.


In order to qualify for any award, the coach must complete all 3 rounds.

The following awards will be given out after the last round:

  • Bloodbonnet Bowl Champion – Most Tournament Points.
  • Runner Up – Second Most Tournament Points.
  • Best Offense – Most TDs
  • Most Brutal – Most Casualties from Blocking
  • Bugman’s Best – Best team as decided by the participants of the event. Tournament Organizer will break ties.
  • Most Sporting – Best Sportsman (as decided by participants. Tournament Organizer will break ties. )

Trickle-down Awardonomics

Coaches will only be eligible for one award. Tournament Organizer will trickle-down an award to the next eligible player. Exceptions are Bugmans Best and Most Sporting which are voted upon by your peers.
