Blood Bowl & the Exiles

The local Blood Bowl league, predominantly run, overseen and protected by Husbit, is known as the Exiles due to the number of times we had to find a new venue as Games Workshop slowly withdrew support for the game. We now mostly play by meeting at each other's houses, but are a friendly bunch and if you want to join us we'll do our best to make you welcome!

As well as the league, Husbit runs two annual tournaments - the Open in September and the specialised 'SpeedBowl' in June. SpeedBowl arrived because Husbit has a reputation for playing fast, and strict two minute turns are enforced to ensure a full weekend's worth of games can fit in one day. For new players, I'd recommend joining us at the Open rather than jumping in the deep end for SpeedBowl - it's exhausting. (Actually, Glowworm's Crumb Bowl is a one-day tournament specifically designed to encourage new players. It's in the Swindon area - the official NAF report is here.)

The Exiles also supports other games, gaming and geekery, but Blood Bowl is the bit closest to my heart.
