Blood Bowl Matt Forbeck : PDF

Matt Forbeck

Matt Forbeck has done something here that I wouldn't have thought possible; he's written an entertaining novel based on a boardgame.

Now, it should be said that Blood Bowl is not your standard boardgame. I still don't think you could write an entertaining novel based on, say, Ludo. For those who aren't familiar with it, Blood Bowl is basically American Football as played in a fantasy universe populated by Tolkienesque creatures. If that doesn't sound awesome to you, don't play the game and don't read this book! :-D

If however, the thought of Bilbo Baggins grabbing a football (a football with metal spikes jutting out of it in all directions, naturally) and then being grabbed in turn by Treebeard and hurled half the length of a football pitch to hopefully land on his feet and scurry into the end zone, dodging slavering orcs and trolls along the way, ultimately scoring a touchdown, sounds like a Hell of a lot of fun to you... Well, quite frankly, you're probably already a fan!

What of the novel, though? Well, there are inevitably going to be fans of the game... 'purists' if you like... who take objection to aspects of this novel because it does trample all over the previously established continuity (or 'fluff' as we players call it) of the game. Not happy with everything Forbeck has got right, these folks will be spitting feathers because he mixes up the commentators, puts a vampire on an undead team and generally creates scenarios on the Blood Bowl pitch that couldn't possibly happen in the game.

I suggest these folks lighten up a bit, to be honest. I've been playing Blood Bowl since the second edition came out, back in 1988, and have seen the game go through more changes than anybody not familiar with the game could possibly imagine. I've read ALL the available fluff and, guess what? It already contradicts itself in a number of places and depicts scenarios in the little 'Did you know?' sections inside the rule books that couldn't possibly happen in the game. In this sense, Matt Forbeck is actually carrying on a grand tradition of not respecting what came before and, far more importantly, written an entire 400 page novel about the game!

That's pretty bloody impressive as far as I'm concerned. The book is fast-paced, exciting and funny... just like the game. While not quite up to his standard, there is an air of Terry Pratchett about it. I'd already ordered all three sequels before I was two-thirds of the way through.

The acid test, though? Does it make me want to play Blood Bowl?

HELL, YES! Now, I've blathered on for long enough... I've got a match between the Erengrad Undertakers and the Skavenblight Scramblers to play...

'purists' if you like... who take objection to aspects of this novel because it does trample all over the previously established continuity (or 'fluff' as we players call it) of the game. not happy with everything forbeck has got right, these folks will be spitting feathers because he mixes up the commentators, puts a vampire on an undead team and generally creates scenarios on the blood bowl pitch that couldn't possibly happen in the game.

i suggest these folks lighten up a bit, to be honest. i've been playing blood bowl since the second edition came out, back in 1988, and have seen the game go through more changes than anybody not familiar with the game could possibly imagine. i've read all the available fluff and, guess what? it already contradicts itself in a number of places and depicts scenarios in the little 'did you know?' sections inside the rule books that couldn't possibly happen in the game. in this sense, matt forbeck is actually carrying on a grand tradition of not respecting what came before and, far more importantly, written an entire 400 page novel about the game!

that's pretty bloody impressive as far as i'm concerned. the book is fast-paced, exciting and funny... just like the game. while not quite up to his standard, there is an air of terry pratchett about it. i'd already ordered all three sequels before i was two-thirds of the way through.

the acid test, though? does it make me want to play blood bowl?

hell, yes! now, i've blathered on for long enough... i've got a match between the erengrad undertakers and the skavenblight scramblers to play...
