Rocky Mountain Rampage Bigfoot Miniature

Gaming Nerds, again, turn to Bigfoot. 
The Bigfoot miniature above is for sale. It's pretty cool and we picked one up for ourselves. If you want one, go to Rocky Mountain Rampage .

There is a bigger story here. As you may be able to discern, it looks like Bigfoot is playing football and there seems to be different teams. You would be right on both counts.

Somehow in 1987 a bunch of gaming nerds started to play a game called Blood Bowl, a football parody roleplaying game with races you would normally expect from a fantasy-themed game; human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls (and now Bigfoot).

Fantasy football with the emphasis on fantasy. 

So these nerds (nerds are cool) play this game with dice and cards and a single game can last for hours. It get's better, this is actually an international phenomenon including sanctioned tournaments and international player rankings. You can get ESPN-like podcast of these events from zlurpcast.com. Zlurpcast claims they are the ONLY Blood Bowl podcast covering the Tournament Scene in the United States, and we don't doubt them. All official games are officiated and sanctioned by NAF, the international association of players dedicated to Blood Bowl.

In May of 2012, one of these tournaments were full of Bigfoot miniatures. If you are curious how the Rocky Mountain Rampage Blood Bowl Tournament turned out your welcome to check out the final scores.
