Oh...Christmas present of mine...lolol...Just told my wife about this :)
From the Fantasy Flight Games website:
"Blood Bowl: Team Manager - Sudden Death Expansion
Sudden Death is bone-breaking, pulse-pounding expansion for Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game that brings three new teams to the pitch, plus a host of all-new gameplay options! Enhance existing teams with additional Staff Upgrade cards and Team Upgrade Cards, and take the competition to new heights with never-before-seen Highlights and Spike! Magazine Cards. Meanwhile, all-new mechanics like enchanted balls and contracts provide a variety of new strategies.
Three New Teams Take the Pitch
Sudden Death introduces three new teams to the skull-crunching action; the Dark Sorcery Syndicate union features dabblers in forbidden magics who just don’t know when to stay down. The undead Champions of Death tear up the pitch – sometimes literally as they raise new zombies and skeletons from the corpses of former Blood Bowl players. The vampires of the Black Fangs are always thirsty for victory (and blood). And the Dark Elves of the Naggaroth Nightmares are happy to give both teams plenty of fresh corpses with which to play.
Champions of Death: Not even mortality can stand between an Undead player and the pitch! While Zombies and Skeletons are not the most durable players, they can survive nearly any beating and come back for more! And woe to the opponent who has to stand up against a Mummy or Wight.
Naggaroth Nightmares: Dark Elves are merciless players, always looking to exploit their opponent’s weaknesses to find the quickest path to victory—even if it means eviscerating the competition. Dark Elf players rely on versatility and brutality, plain and simple.
Black Fangs: The mighty Vampires of the Black Fangs do not know the meaning of mercy—they don’t even show it to their own teammates! Whenever a Vampire player isn’t feasting on one of his Thrall players, he has got his eyes—and fangs—on his opponent.
Once any one (or all three) of these new teams take the pitch, Blood Bowl will never be the same!
Claim Victory with Contracts, Enchanted Balls, and More
Sudden Death also introduces exciting new mechanics that expand the game’s strategic options. Contract tokens are a reward that let managers gain fans in whole new way. Managers earn these tokens by competing for Highlight and Tournament cards that feature the Cabalvision Contract icon, and each token provides a different number of fans.
But here’s the catch: no one know the value of the contract tokens they’ve earned until the end of the season! Will you go for the prize you can count on, or take the gamble for a potentially larger score?
What’s more, the “enchanted balls” optional rule takes the already coveted ball token and adds an extra incentive. The ball carrier gains all the normal benefits of possession, plus a bonus effect! Gain extra Star Power, a few more all-important Fans, or even interrupt your opponent with a well-placed skill; in Sudden Death, you’ll want to hold onto the ball with everything you’ve got.
Are you ready to take Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game to the next level? With plenty of bone-crunching new content and three all-new teams, the Sudden Death expansion is sure to raise your spirits...and maybe a few others."
