Tournament Format:
Tournament will be a Swiss style, resurrection tournament. So any injuries your team suffers will not carry over to the next game. Each round will see a coach play against a random opponent. In each subsequent round, the highest ranked player plays the next highest ranked player they have not previously played. The roster you start the tournament with will be the same for each round you play.

We will be using BB2020 rules pack in combination with the 2024 NAF guidelines for tournaments found here:

All 30 NAF approved races will be allowed according to the NAF 2024 guidelines.

There will be no overtime.

In the spirit of good sportsmanship, Illegal Procedures will not be called -- please simply bring the issue to your opponent's attention and ask that he/she move their marker.

Weather Table: The standard Blood Bowl weather chart will be used

Kickoff Table: The standard Blood Bowl kickoff table will be used

Team Creation:
You are given 1 million gold pieces to build your team using the BB2020 and NAF 2023 team lists. This gold may be used to purchase players, Star Players (after initial 11 have been purchased), Inducements and other team benefits (rerolls, apos, etc.).

Additional Skills:
Each coach will be given 6 skill points to purchase skills for players on the team. No player can be given more than 1 skill. Primary skills are 1 skill point, Secondary skills are two skill points.

Star Player “Ringer”:
In attempt to grant the wishes of the insatiable Rocky Mountain fans, The Rocky Mountain Blood Bowl Committee has allowed each coach to bring in their own Star Player Ringer to compete in this one grand rebellion. Your Ringer may be included in your initial 11 players.

Each coach will have additional gold pieces to customize their own Star Player Ringer and has been given a rebel Human Lineman to groom and join their team for the event. Each lineman has been blessed by the Chaos Gods and will have access to all Skill Charts as primary skills! The only exception to skill selection is Ringers can not take the Leader skill as they are ringers, not leaders of the team.

Coaches will be given gold pieces according to the following Tier system which INCLUDES the 50k cost of the Human Lineman:

Tier 1 teams will have 100k gold pieces. Tier 1 teams include: Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, Dark Elf, Dwarf, Lizardman, Norse, Orc, Skaven, Undead, Underword Denizens, Vampire

Tier 1.5 teams will have 150k gold pieces. Tier 1.5 teams include: Elven Union, High Elf, Human, Imperial Nobility, Necromantic, Tomb Kings, Wood Elf

Tier 2 teams will have 200k gold pieces. Tier 2 teams include: Black Orc, Chaos Chosen, Chaos Renegades, Khorne, Nurgle, Old World Alliance, Slann,

Tier 3 teams will have 300k gold pieces. Tier 3 teams include: Gnome, Goblin, Halfling, Ogre and Snotling

Ringer Human Lineman Stats:
6 3 3+ 4+ 9+ Loner 4+, Animosity, Egomaniac

Ringer New Skill - Egomaniac
A player with this skill has been specifically groomed to become the Ringer of his team for one tournament. As such, the Ringer is a narcissistic egomaniac and thinks the world revolves around him. At the beginning of each drive roll a D6. If the roll is a 1, the player gains the Bonehead skill for the drive. Team re-rolls cannot be used on the Egomaniac roll, but the Pro skill can be used.

Ringer Advancements
After the initial cost of the Human Lineman for 50k, coaches may use the rest of their allotted gold pieces to purchase stats and skills for their Ringer. Ringers may have multiple stat increases (within the limits on the 2020 Characteristic Table on pg 28) but only up to 6 skill upgrades.

Example: A Halfling coach could spend their 300k to groom a 5 ST Ringer if they so choose!

Cost of Stat Upgrades for Ringer:
ST = 80k
AG = 40k
PA/MA = 20k
AV = 10

Cost of Skill Upgrades for Ringer:
Primary Skill = 20k

Ringer Back Story:
Each coach is encouraged to come up with a back story for their Ringer, which may include a name, where they came from, how they were groomed, etc.

A special glittering prize will be given to the coach with the best back story!

The two hour and 10 minute rounds will be enforced. You will receive ‘Time Remaining’ updates from the Tournament Organizer to help you stay on pace.

The 4 Minute turn rule will not be used unless the Tournament organizer feels your game is in danger of not completing in the time limit.
