Retail serial not valid in Steam

I bought Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition retail some time ago.
The Key is fine, it works outside of Steam.

A few days ago I tried installing it via Steam but it doesnt accept the code. Yes, I revoked the key when I deinstalled it and I tried both the key on the cd and the one on the manual.

Anybody experienced a similar problem?

its not a steamworks game.
if you bought the game via steam, you get a key for that one, why don't you simply use that?

I didn't buy it via steam. I merely tried installing it via steam. The same way I did with Skyrim and many other retail games I own.

The retail game does not require steam to play, or provide a steam enabled key.

Yup, unless the game uses Steamworks or you specifically get a Steam key it probably will not activate on Steam.

List of 3rd party games for Steam:
