I missed this for a while, as I thought this game had died, but heres the newslink:

I've not played BBTM for about half a year now, but a new expansion would definitely start us doing so again.

 

Looking at this page...

...we see its all about the Putrid Players Guild

 

Chaos Dwarves, Goblins and a Nurgle team!

 

Not what anybody expected, I think.

 

What does it look like so far, do we think?

 

From what I can see, there's more random, and more hosing. It'll certainly shake up the balance of the teams, but will it be good for the game? Maybe too early to tell!

Not to make requests or anything, but as I've recently acquired the base game I'm looking at the expansions now. Can someone that has both and gets some play time in with Foul Play let me know which of the two expansions I should start with?

I can tell you for a fact that Sudden Death is solid.  You can't go wrong with it.

 

You probably won't get any feedback on Foul Play for a few weeks since it is so new.

After one game with Foul Play where the Goblins were added to the mix, my instinct is that Sudden Death is probably better for newer players.  Foul Play adds alot of weirdness and extra rules to the mix (which is fun once you know the game), but while you are still relatively new having Goblins steal balls from matches, throw their teammates to different matches, etc might be a bit overwhelming.

 

I like Foul Play, but I think Sudden Death is probably the better expansion to start with as it doesn't have nearly as many shenanigans.  I'll comment more as I get more games in.

Sudden Death is the better as a first expansion to the base game, especially for newer players -- but Foul play is a great expansion to that expansion.

 

Reasoning: like Mr Suplex said, the complexity creep is less in Sudden Death. Also, Enchanted Balls from Sudden Death directly improve the base game by a great deal IMO, whereas the optional modules in Foul Play don't necessarily directly improve upon anything from the base game. But Enchanted Balls feel like something that should have been in from the start! (base game balls are boring)

I got Foul Play today.... I just love this game.
