    You may have already seen Skip Tasteless's Challenge series elsewhere. After some negotiation between him and myself, BBTactics welcomes Skip's Challenges into a new home!

    The first couple have already been reproduced on the site so go check them out if you haven't already.

    How come I cant see the solution?

    Spoiler if you mark the next text for #3: Ne2 dodge to N1 and move to M3, Ne12 one dice block on Ca12 push to L3 (follow up does not matter), Blitz action with Ne8, dodge to N-1 and run around Ne7 to do two GFI from N6 to M5 to hit M4 with one dice, push into Ne7 and side step to any of MNO4. Dodge with Ne7 and make 2 GFI for the score!

    These are great, so far I've failed to find the answers on my own though (though I came close on the second challenge) I'm going to try 3 now.

    Spoiler for #1: Move He7 to M6, move He9 to M5, blitz with He10 on Hu7 from K4 and chainpush He3 to K7 and then frenzy Hu7 to M7. Make a 2+ pass, 2+ catch and a 2+ dodge with He3 to score:D

    Edit: I would prefer if the 2d pitch was numbered A1-26 instead of using -1 to -13

    Hmm... Challenge #7 is tricky but I have done a solution with these odds to succeed: With a 2+ dodge to get away from the chainpushed beast its: 4.368% or 14.175% with reroll.

    Without the 2+ dodge it is: 4.805% or 15.295% with a reroll.

    I have not been able to save the blitz to make a push into the endzone, but the dodging will be done with AG4

    Challenge 4 and 5 have been released! Challenge 4 is somewhat simple. Challenge 5.... whoo... we were watching this game as it streamed... Not only did Damek stay under pressure, but he made what seemed to be an awesome choice in the difficult circumstances he was in. #5 doesn't really have an answer, but it was such a great moment of coaching that I had to include it.

    Forget the first try, just found a version that has doubled the odds of success:powdodge:

    With the 2+ dodge its: 9.11% or 24.674% with reroll.

    No 2+ dodge sees it over 10%: 10.021% with reroll its 26.521%

    This try includes 5 3dice blocks:D

    Have you seen Muffin Thief's solution at orca-cola.com? Yours might be similar then, he uses 5 3d blocks and dodges into the wall with 4 AGI ghoul. Both of you guys are rocking it out :D

    Hi and thanks the Challenges!
    Only managed to look at the first one, but as son as I get some more free time I'll look into the others for sure!
    Thumbs up to everyone involved with the idea!

    Oh and by the way, I thought some extra call wouldn't hurt... (Link: Merry Mayhem News: Blood Bowl Challenges!)

    Cheers!

    The first one I did. Spoiler for the challenges, I managed 2 bad versions before I found the right one - I have not been able to save the blitz though:powdodge:
