Optional Rules/Clarifications

  • Special Play cards will NOT be allowed.
  • The Illegal Procedure rule will not be in use, nor is the 4-minute “timer” rule. However at the request of either coach a chess clock may be used to get the match on pace to finish on time.
  • Normal resurrection rules are in effect, meaning that SPPs are not recorded and injuries do not carry over between games.

  • You must have at least 11 players on your team.
  • If you are including a Star Player on your team, you must have 11 players before hiring a star player.
  • Highlander Rule:  You cannot have the same Star Player as your opponent.  If both of you attempt to field the same player, then that star player has swindled you both!!  Neither of you can field them.  Also, you cannot use Igors or Apothecaries on Star Players.
  • Argue The Call: For this to be allowed, you must have a coach model that is thematically accurate for your team. No regular players or oddball figures. Final discretion is given to the organizer as to what qualifies.

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


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.

As stated above a chess clock may be requested by either coach after the 1 hour mark.


Only GW, NAF, or Texas Block Dice will be allowed. You are required to share dice with your opponent if requested. (We may ban dice sharing based on how the COVID-19 Statistics look at the time of tournament)


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 60pts
  • A DRAW is worth 30pts
  • A LOSS is worth 10pts
  • 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:

  • Winning Percentage
  • Head to Head
  • 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
  • Stunty Champion – Highest rated Stunty Team (Halflings, Goblins, Ogre, Snotling) in the standings
  • 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. )
