Dog Bowl II is just over a week away! There has been a lack of Blood Bowl action for the KUBBL lately so having a tournament to tide us over should wet some pallets for this game. This will be the fourth tournament we will be hosting in Kalamazoo. The first two were Special "K" Cups and now the Dog Bowl has taken over as our tournament so that it can coincide with the Marmalade Dog. The Marmalade Dog is a gaming convention put on by the West Michigan Gamers Guild.
Let's look back on the past three tournaments to get some statics and records for Kalamazoo Ultimate Blood Bowl League tournaments.
Special "K" Cup I: Beaux
Special "K" Cup II: Delevus
Dog Bowl I: RowdyKatie
Special "K" Cup I: Falcon
Special "K" Cup II: Flyingdingle
Dog Bowl I: Delevus
Special "K" Cup I: Delevus
Special "K" Cup II: Falcon
Dog Bowl I: Flyingdingle
Special "K" Cup I: Randroid
Special "K" Cup II: DarkOrk20
Dog Bowl I: DarkOrk20
Wooden Bowl/Hind Dog (last place):
Special "K" Cup I: Richlelieu
Special "K" Cup II: Valdric
Dog Bowl I: Valdric
We have yet to have a back-to-back champion or a repeater. We'll see if Rowdykatie can follow-up last years dwarf roll or if Beaux or Delevus can step it up again.
We're looking forward to Dog Bowl II! Get out here!

Weather decided by top table - 7 on the kick-off table becomes:
Marmalade Dog - The Marmalade Dog runs onto the pitch. Each coach rolls a d6 plus fame, the team with the highest score calls the Marmalade Dog to attack the opponents, roll a d6 for EACH player on the opposing team. On a 6, that player falls. Roll on the player’s armor with the Claw modifier. If the armor breaks roll on the injury table. These casualties count! If a 1 is rolled for any player, the dog is distracted by a Big Moot Sandwich in the crowd and ends the event. On a 2, 3, 4, and 5 nothing happens
Apothecaries work on a 3+ and will result in the player remaining on the pitch in the stunned position. Apothecaries cannot be used on Star Players
Tournament will be a resurrection style tournament. So any injuries your team suffers will not
carry over to the next game, and any SPPs earned will also be erased.
Final rankings will be based on total tournament points. Tie breakers will be decided by the TO.
No skills can be given to Star Players
Stunty Bonus: All stunty teams get an agility boost in addition to their tv. The boost can be given to any player. Stunty teams are Ogres, Goblins, Halflings, Underworld without Skaven, and Lizardmen without Saurus.
