encouraged to play 4 minute turns to ensure games are completed. Any games that reach
the time limit will have to be halted and the result at this point will be the final result of that

February? ?Frenzy? ?Special? ?Rule 
The February Frenzy is hosted deep in the savage dungeons of Naggaroth. Whether it is
due to the fumes of the Witch Elves’ psychotropic drugs or the murderous influence of
Khaine, the blood bowl teams playing are apt to descend into a murderous rage at any

Once per match during a kick off but before the D6 and D8 are rolled. Coaches may declare
they are using February Frenzy rule.Only one coach may declare this per kickoff. If both
coaches declare, the receiving team has priority.The other coach has to wait until the next
kick off chance.

For that coaches next turn all his/her players gain the frenzy skill. This wears off once the
turn finishes. The next turn is considered to be one taking taking place in the coach’s normal
sequence of play, not the extra turn gained from a rolling a Blitz on the Kick Off table.
Star players and players already with frenzy gain no bonus from this. Any player with the
Grab skill may not use that skill during this turn as per normal rules.

The round 1 match will be randomly determined. In the following rounds players will be
ranked by points total and paired off into matches e.g. 1st vs 2nd, 3rd vs. 4th etc using
score. Where players are tied on points, they will be drawn against a random opponent who
has the same number of points. Players will not be drawn against an opponent they have
already played during the tournament.

09:30 – 10:00: Registration
10:00 – 12:15: Match 1
12:15– 12:45: Lunch
12:45 – 15:00: Match 2
15:10 – 17:25: Match 3
17:45: Awards

Tournament points are scored as follows for each match:
* 3 points for a win
* 1 point for a draw
* 0 points for a loss

Players on equal points after the final match will be separated in the final placings by
‘Strength of Schedule’ i.e. by adding up the total scores of their three opponents; the higher
net total achieving the higher position. If scores remain tied, combined net touchdowns and
net casualties will be used as a second tiebreaker. At the end of the tournament, the highest
placed player will be crowned the first Steelbowl champion! Only blocking casualties (i.e. those that would yield SPPs) count towards tiebreakers and the Most Casualties prize.
