Swell of the Sea

The ships are sailing in the heart of the sea, and sometimes it has a mind of its own! At the start of
each coach's turn, roll a d6. On a 2+, nothing happens and the turn continues as normal. On a 1, the
ship changes course to avoid being capsized, shifting all players on the pitch. Roll a d8 for scatter and shift all players that direction. If players go off the pitch, it is treated as being pushed into the crowd as normal. Mind those rails!

Special Skill: Sea Legs

A player with this skill may attempt to ignore the move from Swell of the Sea and retain their position. If the player attempts to do so, roll a d6. On a 1, the player moves as normal, but with any other result
they may retain their position. Players may earn this skill from kick off events.

The Buccaneer Bowl Kick-Off Table

Buccaneer Bowl is for the heartiest of scallywags! All matches take place aboard a ship out to sea. To celebrate our unique location, we will be using a special kick off table at the end of this packet.


All injuries will reset between rounds as this is a resurrection tournament.

Illegal Procedure

Illegal procedures will not be called to promote good sportsmanship.


The time limits will be strictly enforced. The four minute rule will not be used unless the Tournament

It’s the love of Blood Bowl that draws us to these events and makes them fun. Good sportsmanship is not encouraged but required from each participant. Things such as gloating, ridicule and poor attitudes will not be tolerated. We are all here to have fun. The Tournament Organizer will have sole discretion over whether or not any particular behavior is poor sportsmanship and may choose to act accordingly.

Roll The Buccaneer Bowl Cup Kick-Off Table

2 Booty for the Captain: The fans have provided the captain with valuable trinkets,
encouraging him to have his mates who are officiating the match look the other way a
bit. Both teams gain a bribe.

3 Stormy Waters: A storm blows in roiling up the waters and rocking the ship violently.
Swell of the Sea activates on a 1-2 for this drive.
4 Perfect Defense: The kicking team's coach may reorganize his players into any other
legal defense. The receiving team must remain in their present positions.
5 High Kick: The ball is kicked very high, allowing a player on the receiving team time
to move into perfect position to catch it. Any one player who is not in an opposing
player's tackle zone may be placed in the square the ball will land in, so long as it is
not occupied.
6 Cheering Fans: Each coach rolls a d3 plus FAME and the number of cheerleaders on
their team. Inspired by the roaring of the crowd, the winner gains a re-roll. In case of a
tie, both teams gain a re-roll.
7 New Climes: The ship passes into a new weather zone. Make a roll on the weather
table and apply the result. If the result is Nice, make a Swell of the Sea roll before
landing the ball. The receiving player does not roll for Swell of the Sea at the
beginning of their turn.
8 Brilliant Coaching: Each coach rolls a d3 plus FAME and the number of assistant
coaches on their team. Thanks to brilliant instruction from the caching staff, the winner
gains a re-roll. In case of a tie, both teams gain a re-roll.
9 Quick Snap!: The offence start their drive a fraction of time before the defence are
ready catching them flat-footed. All of the players on the receiving team are allowed to
move one square. This is a free move into any adjacent square and may ignore tackle
zones or cross into the opponent's half of the pitch.
10 Blitz!: The defense start their drive a fraction of time before the offence is ready,
catching them flat-footed. The Kicking team receives a free bonus turn, but players in
an enemy tackle zone at the beginning of the turn may not take an action. Kicking
team may use team re-rolls and can suffer turnover.
11 Seaworthy: Each coach rolls a d3. The winner gains the Sea Legs skill on one
random team member for the remainder of the tournament. If the result is a tie, both
coaches gain the skill on one random team member for the remainder of the
tournament. Re-roll for any players selected that already have Sea Legs.
12 Kraken Attack!: A mighty Kraken assaults the ship, it's tentacles whipping over the
rails and striking players and fans randomly. Both coaches roll a d6 for each opposing
player on the pitch. If the result is 6, that player is stunned. (Players with ball and chain

are still KO'd).
