Odd question but, I'm looking for a new self contained card game. Which one has more fun/replay-ability for the price?

These 2 are almost impossible to compare.
But purely answering your question, I would say bloodbowl.
I like Warhammer more, but I think just comparing the base boxes bloodbowl hase more replay ability in it.

Wow, this comparison is just, wow. Like. Eh. Different mechanics, themes, one is competitive, the other solo-cooperative.

Only thing they have in common is Warhammer world.

Love both, recommend both. Cannot compare outside all the obvious black and white differences

I have both.
Both are completely different except for they both have cards and dice a rule book and are sold in a box.
Buy both if you got it like that.
If not, choose by flavor (realy fantasy american football or dungeon delving high adventure).
One of these really can't be played solo.

Also have both. Both are solid games. I prefer Warhammer because of the solo-play, the good co-op and the theme.

I kind of feel like your asking which is Cuter; Saturn or Tasmania?

Although they are fairly different, I guess I can give it a shot:

Player count:
WHQ: 1-4 Cooperative game. Solo play is similiar to two player mode.
BBTM: 3-4 competitive game (5,6+ playes probably ok too? don't recall...) - Supports 2 player game, but loses a lot. I wouldn't bother getting it for 2 player mode.

So, for one or two players , WHQ is the only viable option. For 3-4 players, both are viable options. BBTM supports more players, WHQ certainly not.

Replayability:
With 6 teams in the box and human opponents in the mix, I's say BBTM has, perhaps, a slight edge here. I would not say this is a very meaningfull factor in deciding for one or the other: I'd say the differences in gameplay are much more relevant because both are fairly replayable.

Fun Factor:
Both are "fun", but in different ways.
BBTM is silly, chaotic fun. You can plan and strategize, but the game is mostly about instantaneously reacting to your opponents moves, based on whatever options you have in hand. You CAN play badly or poorly, and an experienced player will certainly win more often than not, so there is a fair degree of choice involved, but it's more about reaction than planning.

WHQ is MUCH heavier and meatier, strategy wise, than WHQ. If you have AP prone players, I would recommend BBTM. If you enjoy careful optimization of your game play, go to WHQ.


FWIW: I've owned BBTM since its launch, and it is STILL one of our go to games after all this time. WHQ just launched and looks great, but still hasn't survived the "test of time".

Love, love, LOVE, Bloodbowl Team Manager!!! So many options. Lots of fun. Tonnes of replayability!! Sure, there are two expansions and I use parts of them all the time, but just the base game is great. Personally, I wouldn't play with more than four players as it slows down a lot.

I'm personally afraid that Warhammer Quest will become monotonous after a couple of playthroughs as I don't see a lot of variables to change things up.

Strongly have tot disagree here. Bbtm is a very good 2player game. It plays different then with 4 but it's still very good. So IMHO advantage there for bbtm.
