Jim_and_Bob_Art“Good afternoon, sports fans and welcome to one non-stop, action packed weekend of Blood Bowl action at the Full Beard Cup, sponsored by Bugman’s Bar! I’m certainly looking forward to this one, Bob!”

“That’s right, Jim- if last year’s Cup is anything to go by, the stretcher-goblins are in for one busy weekend!”

“You’re not wrong, Bob! But that’s what happens when the players are offered complimentary flagons of Bugman’s ale before the match! It certainly made for some interesting games!”

“Haha! I can hardly wait! Heeeere we go!”

We are pleased to announce the next great Blood Bowl event here at Warhammer World, the Full Beard Cup. Ahead of you lies a weekend of fantasy sports action, where you will pit your team against like minded Blood Bowl fans in an effort to be crowned the Bugman’s Champion and lift the Full Beard Trophy.

As usual with our events, there will be a number of prizes on offer for various aspects of the hobby, from painting individual models and whole teams, to specific in-game achievements (such as most Touchdowns,Most Interceptions, etc),  sportsmanship, and of course, the Full Beard Cup itself.

This event is a traditional Blood Bowl Cup, where players will be matched up against other players who are on a similar score, so the higher up the tables you are, the better you are doing!

Whether you’re new to the game or you’re a veteran of a thousand matches, The Full Beard Cup is a great excuse to spend a few days playing Blood Bowl in the unique environment of Warhammer World, while enjoying the hospitality of famous brew-master Josef Bugman.
