What is wrong with it? Does it not start? If so, what error are you getting? – Dillmo Jun 29 '13 at 15:54
is it supported? how did you install it? (complete procedure) what is not working? what exactly is happening? Did it successfully install? Do you get any errors? – Alvar Jun 29 '13 at 15:55
@Alvar Blood Bowl is supported – Dillmo Jun 29 '13 at 15:57
you might want to refer to the AppDB page for this game. There are a number of different versions with multiple ratings, but they include various fixes for running the game. – Nil Jun 29 '13 at 15:58
To find the version of wine type wine --version in a Terminal session. Type cat /etc/issue to find the Ubuntu version. – Dillmo Jun 29 '13 at 16:07

Here are some steps to fix your problem:

  1. Run cd ~/.wine/drive_c && gksudo nautilus "Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common"
  2. Type your password
  3. Open the Blood Bowl folder
  4. Search the folder for config.xml and open it
  5. Set Shader to 0 and Fullscreen to 1
