Are the ball rules specific to each round?

I'm keen but the Sunday is a bit of a bind. Will see what I can manage.

How do you randomly determine a time during the round for the bomb ball to explode?

If I'm not playing, I'll have a time locked in for the round and announce it to everyone when the ball explodes.
If I am playing, I'll leave it up to whoever is working at the store on the day to decide on the time and they'll announce it.

Just one last question...

Is this a tournament expecting rookies, new players, and general fun? Or is this full metal arsehole? Doubles access makes for seriously abusive rosters, so if I do come just wondering what sort of vibe you're hoping for.

I'm hoping for the same as last time, the tournament is meant to encourage the new players in Sydney to dip their toes into the Blood Bowl tournament scene.
So more than anything i want rookies to come and grow the game, but have no problem with people bringing their filth and going for the win. Last tournament the rookies brought good teams and did pretty well, I'm not worried about the experienced coaches turning up with a stacked team and wrecking the new players.

Did the last tournament get good NAF signup? Are you expecting a mostly NAF crowd for this one?

Looks like there were quite a few regulars at the last event so I guess the odds of a non-NAF are lower.

Last tourney was all already NAF :)

Most of the new fellows had signed up at Eucbowl.

It'll be a NAF event, last time we had 14 coaches and a few new guys join the NAF. I'm hoping for the same turn out, but obviously more would be better.
I'm sure there are some regulars who don't even know it's on yet, eg Gnome

Cool. Taking a bullshit roster doesn't make me feel so bad now.

Question on this - if the ball bounces into a player and they fail to catch it, is this a turnover?

Not if it happens at start of the turn before you've done anything.

You could reword it as "Before a turn starts..." in order to reduce confusion.
I feel only two things: nothing and nothingness.
