The origins

Blood Bowl – the game fantasy football is an ultra violent bone crunching team sport! Build a hard-hitting team from amongst the fiercest Orc, Elf and Dwarf warriors, plus many others, and get ready to face tough opponents in the bloodiest possible arenas!

Originally created by Jervis Johnson and published by Games Workshop® in 1986, Blood Bowl is a highly successful board wargame based on the famous Warhammer® Fantasy world and American Football. Today, Games Workshop® still sells the miniatures and the game has constantly been updated over the years in order to improve and enrich the Blood Bowl game system and setting.
