View Full Version : Blood Bowl Block Dice

I'm a long time 40k player who just downloaded the Blood Bowl Rulebook pdf from the fanatic website, and would love to give this game a try with my mates.

Unfortunately, whilst we can improvise most of the contents, the rulebook only gives 5 different faces for the "Block" die. Obviously one is repeated on two different faces on the die, we only need to know which one it is.

The faces are: A skull, a skull with a little explosion on it, an arrow, an explosion with an exclamation mark inside it, and a normal explosion.

This info from anyone who still has this classic game would be very much appreciated.

The Arrow is most common, i.e. a push back result

they are

skull:your'e player gets knocked down (don't know wether block affects this)
skull with flash:blth players go down unless one or both have block
white flash:opposing player knocked back and down ( i think dodge affects this)
white flash with exclamation:don't know the difference between this and above)
arrow(x2):push back

And to be totally correct (not that it makes a difference):

The Skull and Both Down (unless Block) are opposite (say 1 and 6)
The 2 Pushbacks are on opposite sides (say 2 and 5)
The Pow and Pow/Dodge are opposite (say 3 and 4)
