Streets of Gold

What the? 

KUBBL 6 has not commenced yet so some league members have decided to try their hands at the game of Street Ball.  This is a Blood Bowl variant that incorporates a smaller, walled pitch, and fewer team members.  It is played in an alley and a much higher rate of carnage ensues.  The hoi polloi of the Blood Bowl world look down on the game as low brow, but the pace and action is riveting. 

Currently, four KUBBL coaches have decided to lead these ragtag street thugs into battle.  The Browns (SB) (human) are coached by 4 time KUB Bowl Champion Beaux. The reigning KUB Bowl Champion, Randroid, coaches the Hooded Menace (SB) (undead). Furry also has a KUB Bowl on his resume and will lead the Back Alley Jumpers (SB) (slann). Up and coming coach Max is taking the 333rd St. Greenstowne Lads (SB) (orc) to the streets.

Last night was opening night for KUSBL 1.  Three matches were played as the Lads won 2 times. The Jumpers split their games and the Browns lived up to their wasteful monikers and lost both games.  These games fly by and are filled with action.  We look forward to seeing many more.

Anyone who has played this game for any length of time knows it's complexities never end.  You can think you have the hang of it and then you play against someone who beats you with ease.  Then again you can beat a superior coach who's been playing forever.  To be honest it can be maddening.

Last night some current KUBBL coaches had a game/teaching session with two new prospective coaches.  The games were played against two of the more experienced coach in the league with a floater coach, going between the two.  Both of the new coaches took to the game quickly and appeared, not only to gain a solid hold on the basics of the game, but they seemed to enjoy playing.

We are looking forward to these coaches joining the KUBBL if they so choose and we are always on the lookout for new blood.
During the break, some KUBBL coaches will be trying their hands at a Blood Bowl variant, Street Ball.  We are excited about giving it a go and are even planning to add it to our winter, regional tournament, The Dog Bowl.  Check out, the KUBBL's own, Randroid's Street Ball pitch in progress.

New Coach Training

Some members of the KUBBL will be training some potential new coaches this evening.  Hopefully, this strengthens the league.  The KUBBL is working toward increasing the talent pool and then starting KUBBL 6.  If there are any other interested coaches in the Kalamazoo area get in contact with the league via our website,, or @TheKUBBL on twitter.
