Dockbowl

So what is Dockbowl? It's a little fun for the bottom four teams after the Fifth round, who, realising they cannot get their hands on first prize by fair means, decide to sneak off to Borr Norr Dock to pinch it!

Basically Dockbowl is like Dungeonbowl but has a few added dangers:

Sea monsters
Pirate-zombie-ghostie-thingys
cannons
sewers
planks / springboards
magical tricks and treats
lots of rigging to swing around on
magically induced weather including waves

and the constant threat of falling / being pushed / swept into the sea (not a good idea when you're in full bloodbowl armour).

Still, with the chance of running off with first prize, the Golden Ball, worth 250'000 GP (plus of course the hand crafted Dockbowl Trophy), the risk of being vaporised by one of To-Me-Ku-Pa's protective spells seems like a good laugh (well, at least thet's what the Team coaches think)!

BRGA's Own Ryan Hodgets took some Extreme Close ups of the Dockbowl teams (nearly blinded himself on the ships masts in the process)

Oh well, I suppose high seas adventure and eyepatches go hand in hand...

David Bailey - NOT!
It is commonplace for a LOT of Stunty teams in Dockbowl, but this was the first ALL - Stunty Dockbowl

Fern Goodliff - Bumble's Bees (Flings)
David Coombes - Blocklings (Flings)
George Williams - BOBlins (Gobbos)
Nigel Norman - The Munchies (Flings)

Looked like Nigel was being DECIMATED by George, but neither were getting very far...

wot no flings left?

On the other side of the dock, two swarms of hairy footed pirates invaded the ghost galleons...

Both Fern and David made good use of the sewers (once they managed to knock over the barrels covering their entrances)

In the end as always it boiled down to a race to find the ball ... Bumbles Bees flew like they had wings and clinched it with panache!

Bumble Triumphs!
