Many years ago, I saw the original board game version of Blood Bowl at a gaming store. It was somewhere around $80, which seemed like a lot at the time. Not just because the average price for a regular board game was still around $5 (this was still the 1980's), but because I didn't know anyone willing to play it. For that matter, I still don't.
I'm not a football person by any means. I know there are 4 quarters to the game, and people listen to bad band music half way through the game. Off hand, I don't think I can name five pro teams off the top of my head without really thinking hard on the matter. And at least one of those teams will probably be for a different sport. Still, I want to play this game. I would love to figure out how to play it. It just seems like the kind of game I could enjoy if I could figure out what I'm doing. (I had the same problem with Mutant League Football on the Genesis, or any other football game I've tried. I just don't understand plays, how to read them, how to execute them, when to tackle the rah rahs)
I have never had any luck trying to learn an electronic football game. Yes, I knew someone in Junior High with that old hand held game. The one with the red LEDs, and all you had to do was run straight on one side to score. But as far as a console goes, I've yet to find a game that I could play. Play well, at least.And yes, that unfortunately includes the old Intellivision game that came with two sets of playbooks. I'm that ignorant when it comes to football games. And yes, I'm that old.
So IF there is someone out there that has the game, would like to play the game on Live, and has some patience, please feel free to drop me a line. I promise that I will try to learn how to play the game. I also promise to be as polite as I can and not cuss too much when you kick my rear with an outrageously high score. I also promise not to play any Madonna songs during half time.
