Blood Bowl 2 Is A Bloody Good Time

Blood Bowl 2 - The Real Fantasy Football

blood bowl 2 pc

One of my favorite games to play lately has been the newest release of Games Workshop's classic board game, Blood Bowl. Mixing elements of American Football with fantasy races from the Warhammer Universe, Blood Bowl 2 brings a smashing good time to the PC or various consoles.

BloodBowl2 Ref View


Blood Bowl 2 is a strategy game adapted from the popular board game of the same name. This is not your run of the mill Madden style action football game. This is a strategy game adapted to PC and console, so you are going to have to use your brain much more than your reflexes. The game is an absolute blast! Imagine a no rules, no holds barred, in your face beatdown game of football where your players are always at risk of hurting themselves, getting injured, or even suffering a fatal blow that will send them to the graveyard for good! Your players are always at risk of injury or death, but so are your opponents players. There is always a sense of danger with every play you make or every hit that you take. That's what makes the game so much fun! Murdering other players right there on the pitch is an absolute blast!  Having an enemy player make a break away play to get just shy of the end zone, only to end his career as a smear of blood on the goal line is just so much fun! Some games get so bloody that one side may lose most of their team before the match ends.

Here's an image I tweeted when I first started playing Blood Bowl 2


What Races Can We Play In Blood Bowl 2?


There are currently 8 races in the Blood Bowl 2 base game:
  1. Humans
  2. Orcs
  3. Dwarves
  4. Skaven
  5. Chaos
  6. Brittonians
  7. High Elves
  8. Dark Elves

There are currently 2 additional teams available as DLC:
  1. Lizardmen
  2. Wood Elves
There are 4 teams coming soon and free for anyone who owns the game before they are released: (Buy soon!)
  1. Norse
  2. Undead
  3. Nurgle
  4. Necromantic
Blood Bowl 2 Fun

Are You Ready To Smash Face?


I can't recommend Blood Bowl 2 enough! It is an awesome game that is a ton of fun with an added element of risk with every die roll. You create your own team based off of one of the races and your players level up as they score touchdowns, make passes, hurt and injure others, kill enemy players, and earn MVP titles for each match. As your players level up you are allowed to pick new skills for them to learn as they become better all around players. Skills like Block, Mighty Blow, Sure Hands, Thick Skull, Diving Tackle, Leap, and more are available to turn your team into even better footballers.

Ideally I would like to get about 10 to 12 players together on PC (via Steam) to start a private league where we play each other team a couple times per season and pass a travelling trophy on to the seasons winner. So if you are interested in playing in a private league with me and others that read this blog or follow me on twitter, be sure to get a hold of me via email or on twitter (SSmith0911) so I can add you to the list.

Where To Buy Blood Bowl 2?


  1. Blood Bowl 2 is available for purchase directly via Steam and sometimes can be found on sale.
  2. You can also grab it via Green Man Gaming and use one of their 20% off codes that can be found on site.

Find out more about Blood Bowl at the Official Site.

I Hope To See (Kill) You On The Pitch!

How To Earn Free Packs In Hearthstone Using MyPoints



How To Get Free Hearthstone Packs Using MyPoints (or Swagbucks)

Hearthstone is an online collectible card game that requires you to buy more packs with gold or cash in order to enlarge and enrich your card collection. Without increasing your card collection, you will have a hard time making better decks to win more matches and unlock more Hearthstone cards and booster packs. I have already discussed how to grind for gold in Hearthstone to get more packs just from playing and how to earn more experience from your Hearthstone matches.

Today I will discuss a strategy I use to buy free Hearthstone card packs with a little extra effort while playing my Hearthstone matches on my PC.


What you will need to follow my strategy is an account with MyPoints.

You Can Sign Up For MyPoints Here  


Using MyPoints to Earn Free Hearthstone Packs

MyPoints is a rewards program website where you earn points for doing simple tasks like taking surveys, clicking on advertising emails, shopping through their stores links, or watching videos. The big keys here for the Hearthstone Strategy is taking surveys and watching videos. Most of your first impressions are probably that you want nothing to do with the time required to invest into any video watching or survey taking sites. Let me explain why these are important to this free packs Hearthstone strategy and require very little effort on your part.

Use Your Opponents Turn For Earning Points


Hearthstone is a game where you can do absolutely nothing on your opponents turn. That means you are sitting there for minutes at a time doing nothing but watching your opponent make his moves as you wait for your turn to roll back around. Add in opponents that are slow or purposefully stalling and you have a lot of time sunk into playing your matches, Where half the time you are just waiting and doing nothing, you could be earning reward points to convert to gift cards to convert to free Hearthstone cards.

That's where the MyPoints site comes in handy. The best thing about the MyPoints site over all kinds of other points earning sites is that their video watching system is able to be used in multiple tabs simultaneously and you don't have to stay within the window to get points for viewing the videos! Anyone who has tried other points reward sites that use video watching for earning points knows many of these sites force you to have to stay on that single video with the volume up or the video will pause itself.  The MyPoints video watching system doesn't require volume, can be in multiple tabs at once with various videos playing at the same time, and a single click will auto start the videos so you don't even have to hit a specific play button.

So here is how I set up my Hearthstone session with Mypoints windows running in the background. Below is an image of my desktop as I'm set up to play Hearthstone and earn points during my opponents turns.

How To Get Free Hearthstone Packs & Cards
MyPoints & Hearthstone Strategy (Click to Enlarge)

As you can see in this image, I have the web browser open and in windowed mode in the background with Hearthstone also running in windowed mode in the foreground. This allows me to watch multiple videos for MyPoints credits, while playing Hearthstone. My time is already sunk into the game, so earning points while playing is an added bonus and an efficient use of my opponents turn times!

For ease and efficiency, I set the desktop screen up as seen in the above image. You simply click on a video to start it auto-playing in a tab. You don't even have to keep close tabs on the videos to see when they end in each tab, because all you have to look for is the little speaker icon on the individual tabs. When the speaker icon disappears, that means the video has stopped playing and its time to click another video to start the new one running and earning you more points.

Turn Those Free Points Into Free Gift Cards


Then once you have collected enough points you simple convert your MyPoints points into gift cards to spend on free Hearthstone packs or whatever else you like. MyPoints points can be converted into tons of gift card options, but for unlocking free Hearthstone cards, you can convert them into:

Some of those gift card options can be used to buy the packs outright or you can hunt for further savings by buying a gift card from one shop and buying the better value card from that vendor. As an example, it can be more efficient to convert to an Amazon or eBay gift card to purchase a cheaper priced iTunes gift card on Amazon or Ebay as opposing to getting the iTunes gift card with your MyPoints.

So why just sit there doing nothing while your opponent takes his turn? Put that wasted time to good use and earn yourself some free Hearthstone cards with very little effort! I watch videos and take a few surveys during my Hearthstone play sessions on my PC and in turn I rack in the free and easy to obtain Amazon gift cards, which i turn into iTunes gift cards to get my Hearthstone card packs for a much better value and little to no extra effort.

(Make Sure To Confirm your Account To Get Your Free Points For Joining)



This strategy works to get all kinds of gift cards for various places. I just like to pair it with Hearthstone since there is a lot of wasted time sitting waiting during your opponents turn. And that time can be converted into $10, $25, and $50 gift cards with little extra effort using the time you've already sunk into the game already. In a normal Hearthstone gaming session I can watch many videos in the multiple tabs I have running and not miss a beat in my Hearthstone match!

I also use the same strategy with Swagbucks to earn gift cards - Swagbucks starts you with a free $5 and if you hit 300 Swagbucks in your first 30 days(points worth $3 cash out), they will match you another $3! I've been using Swagbucks a lot recently and the earnings come a lot faster. So I'd definitely sign up for Swagbucks and Bing Rewards, then add MyPoints and InBoxDollars if you are looking to expand into more options for earning money online.

Bing Rewards is a super quick and easy program where you can easily earn $5 every 2-3 weeks for just 20 searches a day! I've also recently started with Inbox Dollars, which is a similar program to these other rewards programs. Inbox dollars seems to take the good from Swagbucks and MyPoints and is another easy source for extra online income.

I've recently started using Get-Paid as another way to earn income online with little to no work. The tasks and activities at Get-Paid pair well with my ability to complete these tasks and offers while at my normal job. And the tasks to earn come a lot faster and easier than the other main sites, so I'd definitely recommend checking out this site as well. They even offer nice referral rewards for people you may also refer underneath you.

Another easy to use earnings site is Gift Hulk, which I've just started using as well.
