Touchdown Thursdays: Deathzone Review

 

Apart from some cards decks for the Skaven, Dwarfs and Halfing teams, this is the biggest release we have seen since Bloodbowl Season 2 was launched in 2020. Deathzone has been billed as a must have for all coaches worth their salt. I have read through the book and can safely yes it does. 


What's in the Book?

As you can see it packed to the gills with background, rules and new play mode. I will break it down below:

World History:- This section offers more background since the fall of NAF and has some really nice additions.

Inducements:- A good third of the book is some brand new inducements to add more punch and variety to your team. From famous coaching staff to Halfling Hot Pot there is something in there for every team. I am certainly looking forward to seeing what the chef will pull out of the pot at half time.

Fabulous Freebooters:- Here you find rules for creating your own mercenary players, I am going to make use of this section to create some of my own star players.

Titanic Effort:- Its all about the giants baby. At a whopping 350,000 gold you can add a giant into your team. Covering 4 squares and the hardest thing to stride onto a BloodBowl pitch this is something I really want to paint and add to my collection.

Sponsorship & Stadia :- Want to have your team sponsored or some cool rules for your home stadium then this the place to look. 

Balls & Weather :- The balls have featured before in either Spike magazines or on the outside of the pitch boxes. But it is nice to have them all in one place with some very cool additions.

Match Events:- If you want some randomness added to your matches these tables give some fun actions to add spice to the game. I however would not really recommend them for league or tournament play as some of them will unbalance the game.

Blood Bowl Sevens:- For those of you short on time or looking to run a one day tournament then Sevens is for you.

As you may have guessed it is a seven aside game, played on a smaller pitch. So quicker games meaning that most games should only take an hour to play.

I am looking forward to play some upcoming games using sevens with Chris from work.

The book is a great addition to the second season and will offer a lot of players some wild and varied options for their teams and leagues. I am really looking forward to converting up a giant.
