W is for Wizard

Blood Bowl is a Fantasy Football game, and everyone knows that all descent fantasy settings include Wizards!  Back in the old days teams could recruit their own Wizards for their team support crew.  Not so any more, but Wizards still roam the stadiums of the old world looking for a laugh and a bit of something shiny in return.  Any team is allowed to hire one for a match, but at the paltry cost of 150,000 gold pieces they tend to be contracted by the underdog team as an inducement to help even the odds.

A wizard may cast only a single spell during the match, and the choice is between a Lightning Bolt (which knocks over any player on a 2+) or a Fireball (which knocks over any player in the target or adjacent squares on a 4+).  Cast at the ball carrier at a critical moment, this can make a huge difference!


  1. I have something of a weakness for the Wizard. It's very rare that one of my early teams doesn't blow all its inducement gold on hiring a well-placed fireball to help with cage cracking or recover from a blunder...

  2. You have done a great job on the A to Z Challenge...
