Games Workshop announced over the weekend that Blood Bowl spin-off, Dungeon Bowl, would be returning to the tabletop soon. Head down into the dark and do a bit of dungeon crawling whilst also trying to score a touchdown.

For those who don't remember Dungeon Bowl, it's a wizardly spin on the Blood Bowl. The eight Colleges Of Magic pull together teams of assorted players and drop them into a dangerous, trap-laden dungeon.

Much like a normal game of Blood Bowl, touchdowns are the key to winning. First, however, you've got to find the ball amongst the many treasure chests that are dotted in the winding corridors and you'll need to work out the best way to get back to your intended target. The other players aren't going to make that easy either!

Much like the classic game, the new Dungeon Bowl set comes with a bunch of dungeon tiles for you to explore. You'll also get some neat 3D elements to enhance your games including treasure chests to root around in and portals to vanish in and out of.

Besides that, Dungeon Bowl plays practically the same as a normal game of Blood Bowl on a mechanical level. You are still going to be blocking and blitzing your opponents, forming lines of defence and looking for that endzone.

Two teams are also available in the box, the College Of Fire...

...and the College Of Shadow. As you can see, each College has picked a team that represents their particular sphere of magic rather well. You've got the brutal and hard-hitting Ogres and Dwarfs going up against sneaky Dark Elves and Skaven!

Dungeon Bowl was a version of Blood Bowl I didn't ever get to actually play myself but I did see it on the tabletop a few times. It looked like a lot of fun and seems like a good way for budding managers to mix and match their miniatures and play something a little different to the regular game.

Blood Bowl has always been a tactical game but it has always been more about the wackiness and zaniness for me. Dungeon Bowl offers that up and is tied directly into the quicker, revamped rules by the design team.

Are you tempted by this twist on Blood Bowl?
