Introducing Beach Bowl

Post  Johnny KTOU on 2013-03-01, 14:29

There are at least a dozen BB variants (Beach, Street, Dungeon, 7s, Bridge, Mega...) and I think it would be brilliant to introduce them all to vary games. But some are unbalanced at the moment, or would need tweaking, but eventually, I'm hoping to manage to introduce them all within the open league. But one thing at a time...

I love the Beach Bowl concept: Blood Bowl even sillier and more relaxed. Different weather table, shorter game, Pam the lifeguard, Roberto, different kick off table, Showtime! (Mike's gonna love this bit...), treasures of the beach... I liked it so much I had my own Beach Bowl pich made Very Happy

Anyway, I thought about introducing Beach Bowl as a mean to have some recuperation games. Who hasn't been stuck in long leagues? With players missing, lots of loners and, being weaker, you get even more casualties and create a vicious circle... It then takes ages to catch up...

There is no casualties at Beach Bowl, just knocked out, so it would be an ideal way to play to change the routine as well as letting the team breathe once in a while and getting these MNG back...

Here are the rules, http://www.lutececup.org/divers/download/LRB6EnglishBeach.zip and below how we would have them fit within the league.

So before playing a game, you could propose to play a regular Blood Bowl match or one of the variations; I have personally two Beach Bowl pitches and could buy an extra one to leave at the club too. Basically, choose the players from your teams with the restrictions in "Team creation" from Beach Bowl and recalculate your TV to work out inducement. See the Appendix on page 6 to see which inducements are available.

Play using the different rules and the new tables.

At the end of the game, there is no winnings, but there is a chance a player or cheerleader joins the team (see Appendix 6); the only restrictions I will add is that if a player joins the team, it is a basic lineman, it can't be anything else; and also ignore the rules about rerolls, it is silly in our current format to win more team reroll by playing Beach Bowl.

Please take some time to read the rules and let me know if everyone is happy with introducing this variation, use the poll options; remember it would only be optional and if it works well we have the option to add more variations. If you like the idea, but are not sure about all the rules, use the last option and comment on what changes you'd like to see, and when we'd all agree on rules, I'll write a new specific post to go with the Open Leeg Rules.

Only 2 votes (including mine Very Happy ) Can I safely assume that no one is actually bothered then?

I'll post the rules then and see if someone wants a game eventually, that should do as play testing. Very Happy
