So the game is out of print.

Now, I found Blood Bowl - Team Manager - Sudden Death in stock in my town.

Is this the better of the two expansions to get?

Thanks in advance

By all accounts Foul Play is the better one, but is impossible to get now. If you like the game, get sudden death, it's not bad. The undead are widely considered to be overpowered (I agree), but it's no big deal, easy to house rule or give to a less experienced player.

Not that it matters too much, but just how much will I be missing out on by not having Foul Play?

Not much. It's three new teams but there is plenty of fun to be had in the base game.

What teams are included in base game and expansions.

Can't find the info.

I have sudden death only and I'd say its worth getting. The new balls are definitely worth it.

I think Sudden death is the better expansion. The enchanted balls are the best bit of the expansion.

There's no desperation to get Foul Play. Play the base + SD a few times and if your group likes it, hunt down a copy of FP.

I will say that I think Foul Play's extra stuff seems to keep the fan score a little move even thoughout the game (that is, there seems to be less tendency for one guy to get a runaway lead) but that's anecdotal. I use all the things it adds except for the roving corrupt ref which I feel adds unecessary fiddling and extra playtime which BBTM does not need.

I'm inclined to agree and the enchanted balls are certainly excellent although I would suggest that the teams are the best thing about the expansion.

OP - given that the game has only just gone out of print it may be worth checking out any nearby mainstream stores that sell FFG games...

I think the Stadiums are unbalanced, and the corrupt ref rules too cumbersome. Fouls are fun though. If I could only get one it would be SD.

I found Foul Play in another language, but I guess I would need reference up all the time, so it wouldn't fill any purpose?

I picked up Sudden Death (it was the last one they had).
