Zlurpee Bowl

 

ZlurpeeBowl

Zlurpee Bowl was created by Bryan “Xtreme” Mitchell, and is now one of the premier tournaments in America. It started from humble roots and has come a long way since then.

Each year something new is learned and makes the following year that much easier to organize. When things get easier, that provides more free time to try new things. With seven years of hard work getting the tournament to the point it is at now, Xtreme can’t wait to see what next year will bring at Zlurpee Bowl X

The ‘little’ tournament in Indy started out as a footnote to GenCon, but as far as Xtreme is concerned, it has far surpassed GenCon Bowl as the best tournament in Indy. But you wouldn’t want a Tournament Organizer to think anything less right?  Zlurpee Bowl currently holds the record for the largest attendance for an independent tournament in North America with 68 coaches. The growth of the tournament has been amazing, and can be attributed to the great coaches that attend each year. They take all their fun stories home and bring a few new coaches with them the next year. Zlurpcast has helped the tournament grow a lot in recent years, as now we aren’t dependent on coaches in the Midwest getting the word out, but we have the best Bloodbowl podcast in the world spreading the word.

The list of Zlurpee Bowl Swag items Xtreme has given away over the years is remarkable, and it brings him much joy every time he attends another tournament and notices someone using some of the stuff they got at Zlurpee Bowl. He takes a lot of time to try and come up with cool stuff that people will actually use each year. While there have been some giveaways that Xtreme may have struck out on, most of them have been met with excitement from the coaches attending Zlurpee Bowl!

Coming to Zlurpee Bowl is a special experience. While the regular tournament crowd sees it as another chance to talk to their Blood Bowl friends that they may not get to see too often, there are a lot of coaches who only attend a few tournaments a year and make sure Zlurpee is one of them! We also have a lot of first time tournament coaches that make Zlurpee their first tournament ever. The field at Zlurpee has a wide range of experience levels, but looking to the top tables each round you can see some of the best coaches the US has to offer.

If this is going to be your first tournament ever, or you are a seasoned player that hasn’t been to a Zlurpee you really should make it a point to get there. You will have a blast.  Xtreme promises “a big tournament with the attention to detail you get at smaller tournaments”. Zlurpee Bowl X is shaping up to be the biggest and best Zlurpee to date, don’t miss out on all the fun.

Zlurpee US Midwest Forums

Zlurpee Forums

The Zlurpee Bowl Forums have become the one-stop-shop for information on US tournaments especially those taking place in the Midwest. The original idea was to try and unite the different little groups of coaches and give them a place to come together. It has done that and much more, now offering advice to new tournament organizers and promoting any tournament that comes along.

These forums give a tournament organizer their own sub forums for their tournament so unlike on other forums they aren’t forced to put everything in one thread that becomes a pain to sort through. Having your tournament on the Zlurpee Forums also guarantees that you are advertising it to some of the most dedicated coaches that are the most likely to come to your tournament.  Why waste time and effort advertising to those who aren’t going to come?

Outside of the tournament areas, the forums have awesome general Blood Bowl discussion going on. As well as being the official home of the Zlurpcast and a great place to interact with the hosts of the podcast and a lot of the characters you hear us talking about, come and hang out on the forums and you will feel like you know everyone before you actually meet them at the next tournament you attend.

Over the years the forums have had a lot of community building activities, several legacy teams have been put together. Multiple FUMBBL leagues have been run, as well as one Cyanide league. The annual Fantasy Football league is always fun for those that are able to get into it.

One of the coolest parts of the forum is the Hall of Fame, that keeps tracks of all the awards forum member have won at tournaments, it is nice having someones credentials at your fingertips when they are offering you advice.

Registration has been a monster we are constanly trying to tame, if you are having any issues getting registered to the forums please email Xtreme directly and he’ll hook you up.

Make sure to include the username you are trying to get registered with and he will make sure you get on the forums asap.

The Chaos-All Stars were a major part of the lore in the original editions of Blood Bowl. In keeping with the original theme of the team, Impact Miniatures, has produced a Chaos All-Star model to be given away to all participants of the Chaos Cup that year. Here is the current list so you can make sure you track down the full team. Remember, these are all Limited Edition, so once they are gone, you’ll have to find ’em on ebay!
