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 the official GW 2020 Blood Bowl rules in addition to the NAF 2024 Rules for Tournaments found here:

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 weather table will not be used and the weather is always Nice - Perfect Blood Bowl Weather.

The Kickoff Table in the BB2020 ruleset will not be used, we will be using the RMR custom kickoff table found at
