Yo I am BBBBAAACCCKKKK!

Post by GreyWolf »

Ok so I hear there is a new season of BB and am wondering what its like compared to the previous edition?

Are there much in the way of changes?

My Son is now 12 so he is keen to make a team to beat up on mine. And a Mate is keen to learn....So I mate actually get some games.

Not sure if anyone on here still rembers me.... but Hi anyway...

I haven't picked up the second season, but looked it up online. Seems like the changes are largely:
- Passing is moved to its own stat rather than being an AG roll
- The stats where it's appropriate (AG, PA and AV) are changed to target numbers
- New teams/skills/etc (because they can, I guess)
- (Edited to add) Skill progression has been tweaked. You can now decide when (SPP-wise) to give the player a skill and the longer you leave it the better you can get.

I'm tossing up between the box set and just the rulebook. The Imperial Nobility team aren't my favourite sculpts and I've got pretty much everything in the box except the minis and the new rulebook...

I have a custom board I my brother in law and I made.
As for teams I have some minis I could add to make and undead team, or which ever has werewolves.
