Yesterday we got a look at a new standalone game with the Necrons and Space Marines, today we have more on that and the new Blitz Bowl that was just spotted!
Labirynth of the Necrons was spotted yesterday, and now we’re getting a better look at the contents, and a little more information courtesy of Reddit.
So it looks like Labyrinth of the Necrons, which was first spotted yesterday, is actually going to be a new Space Marine Adventures game featuring the Blood Angels, Ultramarines, Space Wolves, Salamanders, and Imperial Fists. It’s actually a surprisingly small game board now that we see the whole thing. These images are from the GW booth at the Toy Fair that took place over the weekend.
It also looks like Blood Bowl is getting a new expansion named Blitz Bowl. The following image was spotted on Board Game Geek via locustofdeath. Let’s see what he had to say about it.
Blitz Bowl is an introductory version of Blood Bowl bearing a 40-minute playing time that’s coming from Games Workshop in 2018.
Apparently this is an introductory game designed for coaches who don’t have time to play full-on BB, new coaches looking to get into the game, or younger folk who aren’t ready to learn the rules of the main game.
A 40-minute version of Blood Bowl sounds like it would be perfect for those time you want to get a game in, but only have an hour or less. Blood Bowl is already an easy enough game to learn, but having a shortened version is perfect for getting new players more experience faster, and we look forward to finding out more.
From the looks of it, we have a couple games designed for your more casual players in store for us in the upcoming months. For now, this is all we know about these two new games, but make sure you’re checking back in with us for the latest updates.
