Back in the early days when we funded DreadBall on Kickstarter, only half of the first print run went to backers, and the rest went to our retailers. Since then we’ve reprinted the game three further times, as well as introduced the Kick-off variant.
The Futuristic Sports Game

Well, now the fourth print run of DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game has been and gone, closely followed by DreadBall Ultimate and some of the other bits in the range.

But never fear – the Galaxy’s Greatest Sport will be returning this summer.

To celebrate the fifth print run of this iconic game we are creating an all-new Limited Edition Azure Forest DreadBall game set with an incredible Special EditionAzure Forest Gaming Pitch, and:

- A'teo "The Savage" Adyssi MVP
- Azure Forest Rulebook: which includes expansion rules for your DreadBall games and League Rules
- Azure Forest Gaming Cards

- 10 Marauder Players
- RefBot
- Balls
- Clear Hex Bases
- Season 1 Rulebook
- Roster Pad
- 18 coloured dice
- 54 Gaming Cards
- Special Edition Box with foil cover.
The new limited edition set begins shipping in July.

More imagery will be coming next week but we just wanted to give you the heads-up first as this set isONLY available in STRICTLY limited quantities - once they're gone they're gone. Pre-order now on the Mantic Games Website and we will also include two FREE random MVPs in your order!

A sixth print of DreadBall will be coming later this year, back to the standard specification without all of the special edition goodness. The only difference will be that we’ll take the “Deluxe” off the front of the box, because we know that seemed to confuse a few people.
Free Terrain for all!

Missed the DreadBall Xtreme Kickstarter?
Like The Futuristic Sports Game has gone! on Facebook
Earlier this year we ran a Kickstarter for DreadBall Xtreme – a new version of the futuristic sports game that takes it underground into the realms of seedy sponsors.

The Kickstarter spawned 3 new DreadBall Season books, 12 new teams, 3 new giants and a smorgasbord of new MVPs. We know some of you missed the Xtreme Kickstarter when it was live, perhaps the end date was before payday or you wanted to pledge by PayPal.

Well, next week we’re opening the PledgeManager to new backers – that is, even if you didn’t get in on the Kickstarter was live, you can sign-up to the PledgeManager and get access to some of the great reward levels and offers that were available! The PledgeManager itself will close on the 31st July, and you can use either Credit Card OR PayPal, so you’ve got plenty of time to sign-up.

Your funds will go against stretch goals as well, meaning that the more people that join in, the higher the pledge total gets, the more free stuff we’ll throw in.
