Hello and welcome to the inaugral ARBBLGCDBL (Albion Rules Blood Bowl League Gaming Club Dread Ball League, thought i'd pick something catchy :D)

I'm going to be following the league rules from the season 1 rulebook for setting up the league, so first round will be drawn from a hat and this will then sort out the team ranking based on how much the team is worth, draws being decided by who has the most league points.

You'll get 3 points for a 7 point landslide

2 points for winning a game

1 point for losing/drawing

A round will be 2 weeks worth of club nights, the person on the night with the lowest ranking decides who they play (we probably need to give weight to people who are only able to play 1 night, but i'm sure we'll manage).

I thought it would be cool to have a final between the person with the highest ranking and highest league points, but we'll see how it goes.

The only thing i'm not sure on is how to handle bidding for MVPs, as obviously if somebody is not there on the night it'll be unfair to them. I don't know whether it will be easier to just not use MVPs at all? Does anybody have any other ideas on how to handle this?

The first round should be on the 4th Feb, if you could get your team rosters (Simon has put up a fantastic template in the dreadball resources dropbox) to me by the 2nd that would be fantastic, my email is [email protected]

Otherwise, any questions, problems or suggestions please post below!

Sven - there's a thread on TFF about Dreadball, and it goes into a lot of people's experience with league play.  Might be worth a look.

You play 1 "league" game per league "week" (which will be actually 2 weeks realtime) and then you can play as many "exhibition" matches as you want/can.  So I imagine some people will play a league game and an exhibition game one week, something else the next, but it's up to everyone to decide.  I'm probably going to play Reece at Twilight and Ryan now and then to give Gary a break.  Also, Robin (Blocknroll) might pop up one night for some X-wing.

Yep, should be plenty of time to get other games played. I think there will be about 8 of us in the league which means there will only need to be 4 games in a 2 week period of league matches.


I'm sorting out my team logo over the weekend :lol:, I did mention that we have to have team logos right? :p

Google is king...


I have around 200 various logs (some real life sports, some made up) just for thiings like this. Just a case of finding one to go with the name (or in this case, finding a name to go with the logo).

Try any of these if you're stuck.
