The past weekend I went to the Waterbowl a two day Blood Bowl tournament held in Stockport. If you still have never been to a tournament I would really recommend it. The coaches who play are very welcoming and are willing to help you with rules and give you tips. The Swiss system of play is good for new players. Your first round is draw is against a random coach then all you games reflect how you are doing in the tournament. So win matches and your playing the best players. Loose matches and you play coaches more akin to your level of play for that day. With this even as a newer coach has a chance at winning the odd match.

Here are my results:

I enjoyed all of my matches and met a lot of great people. Another great point in going to these tournaments as a new player is the range of teams and skill of coaches you meet. I had never played a Skaven on Skaven match and played two in the Waterbowl. Both were great games and I learnt a lot to take into future matches. My two favourtie matches were on day 2. The first against a Norse team and the second an almost mirror match against a Skaven team.
