The Blood Bowl rules used in all NAF tournaments is called the Competition Rules Pack, or CRP.  This rulebook is the culmination of an evolution of the Blood Bowl rules in a process called the Living Rulebook (LRB).  The LRB process reached LRB5, and then the Blood Bowl Rules Committee (BBRC) was disbanded with the publication of the CRP.  In addition to the CRP, however, NAF Tournaments also allow the use of the New Teams (Chaos Pact, Slann and Underworld).

With lots of games played since the last version of the LRB, almost every combination of events has happened, so there are various Clarifications that the authors have made on various forums.

The Blood Bowl world is in a state of excitement at the moment, with a new release from Games Workshop planned in the next 12 months.  We have been the most popular source for finding the official BB rules since they were removed from the GW website in Spring 2014, but GW have asked us to remove them in anticipation of the new rules being released, so that players who are new to the game do not get confused.

The CRP will continue to be used at NAF tournaments until further notice, but the document was removed from at the end of June 2016, as it is a GW document.  There are lots of copies available for personal use if you do a quick search for them – make sure to get the Competition Rules Pack.

    in a Ux point of view, i think the CRP link should be bigger, a big fat green button stating “DOWNLOAD THE CRP” instead of the flooded tiny crp link would help some people to find their way.

    my 2 cents

    this will not download onto my laptop at home. got it onto my phone, but not very user friendly, 2 pages on an a3 which is a swine to read… will try the link at work, could just be my internet connection

    Is 160kgp the correct price for the Rat Ogre? I think it should be 150kgp. But in the CRP you have linked to, it’s priced at 160kgp.

    The link to the rulebook on the Cyanide forum is down. Can you upload the file here or contact them and get them to fix it?

    Just picked up BB for the Xbox… Now to build a board and find some minis!

    Thanks for the download fellas, this is really great. I’m probably about as excited to start playing Blood Bowl as actual sports fans are about their big events! Whoo-hoo Blood Bowl! Yeah!

    Sann0638…could you clarify a blitz Action? You are surrounded by 3 players in your tackle zone. You declare a block to remove one of the players and follow through and you still move after that or does the follow through end your move?

    I ask the same that Phiphe. Will there be a LRB 7.0? Or will the NAF only have the capacity to approve and disapprove rules issued by Games Workshop?
