From the review:
"For those who don't know, Blood Bowl is a virtual adaptation of a classic board game from Games Workshop, the fantasy hobbyists. It mixes American football with goblins, elves, ogres, and dwarves, then underpins the entire sport with brutal, sadistic violence. Out here in this irritating thing called reality, fans will buy the board game, spend hours assembling and painting models, talk with fellow fans, discuss the rules, make up new ones, invent tournaments and scenarios, host grudge matches, and more. Adapting this for the small screen rather negates these huge parts of the hobby – actually playing is just one aspect of belonging to the war game fraternity."
