If possible, Blood Bowl's in-game tutorial was of even less assistance. A staggering mess of text, esoteric terms, intricate rules and, best of all, an A button that both advanced to the next text card and performed actions on the field. I had to go through the tutorials four times just to grasp how to execute the most basic acts of the game. Larger strategic concepts are completely absent, leaving the complete novice at a loss to do anything other than play a dozen unsatisfying games in hopes of developing some kind of intuition. I never did."
