Eurobowl 2022 Draft Rules

These are the team building rules that were used for Super League Showdown, which were at the time of the event the draft Eurobowl rules for Malta 2022.

Tournament rules

Team value

The Tournament uses the Bloodbowl 2020 edition Exhibition play rules.

Each team has a total of 1,150,000gp to spend on roster creation and must hire a minimum of 11 players. Any gp unspent at roster creation is lost and all teams are considered to be of the same TV for the purpose of inducements.

This is a resurrection tournament, no SPP is gained, and injuries, casualties or deaths do not carry on from one game to the next.

Players added to a team roster mid game as a result of the Masters of Undeath or Plague Ridden special rule are removed from the roster at the end of the game and do not carry on to the next.

Inducements

Permitted inducements are:

  • 0-1 Halfling Master Chef
  • 0-2 Bloodwiser Kegs
  • 0-3 Bribes
  • 0-2 Wandering Apothecaries
  • 0-2 Mortuary Assistant
  • 0-1 Plague Doctor
  • 0-1 Riotous Rookies (Riotous Rookies can never be hired post game)
  • 0-1 Biased Referee
  • Star Players – see tiers for rules permitting stars

All other inducements are not permitted.

Star players are limited in each squad, no named star may be taken twice.  In each squad of 6 players, Griff Oberwald for example, may only be taken by one of the coaches and no more.  Therefore, coaches will need to negotiate who will have which star.

Coaches must have 11 players on the team before hiring a star player.

In addition, if an opponent is fielding the same star as that coach then both may use him during that game.

Skills

Teams are separated into 1 of 7 Tiers and offered Tier specific skills packs. Each team is permitted to stack 2 Primary Skills on a maximum of 1 player.  However, the 2nd primary Skill added counts as a Secondary Skill. This can only be done once.

All skills must be chosen and cannot be random.

A player which is assigned a secondary skill may choose to take a primary skill instead.
