I realize that this isn't the authoritative forum for BB, but I am not familiar enough with the others to know where to post this question.

LRB 5 has all the differences between it and 4th ed nicely displayed in red text. LRB 6 does not have this nice feature. Can someone point me to the differences? I realize the changes are centered around league play, but I have (impatiently) had them open side by side and not found a difference.

Thanks in advance for the help!

That forum is a bit misleading. You cannot Pass Block a Dump Off. Repeat, Cannot.

especially when it says just above it:

Dump-Off
Cannot be Pass Blocked

and then (under Pass Block)

Pass Block
May not be used for thrown bombs
Must reach a legal destination square.
May be used against Dump Off passes.

The actual LRB6 does NOT say that dump off cannot be pass blocked in the description for dump off, It DOES say that pass block may be used against a dump off in the pass block skill description, so it would appear that this situation as described by the rules is
a) Not ambiguous
b) Dump off can be pass blocked

Do you mean the LRB 5 experimental rules? That's the version I have, and it shows red text for proposed LRB 6. It has nothing to do with LRB 4.

In my copy, the rule against pass blocking a Dump Off is in red text, meaning it was proposed as a rule for LRB 6. Apparently that change didn't make it in, though. So, I believe the official rule is that you CAN pass block it.

Other things that didn't make it in (but appear in red text in my LRB 5):
-- Halfling Master Chef for 50k, instead of 100k.
-- Flesh Golems at 100k instead of 110k.

Those are the only ones I know of. But, again, that is differences between LRB 5 experimental rules, and LRB 6.
