|1988 Box art. Rather sad but I still have my old copy.|
"Friends don't let friends play Blood Bowl" is an unfortunate turn of phrase relayed to me some years back. A friend of a friend of a fairly prominent North American GW employee passed on this little mantra from the former with a laugh and it became a bit of a punchline any time people expressed interest in playing it at the local hobby shop. Recently this joke resurfaced in a discussion about the, "mystery box that wasn't" (Blood Bowl was rumoured prior to the Innocence rumour that replaced it then died) and someone tried to extol the "wonders" of Dreadfleet while disparaging the Game of Champions.
