The Dreadball 2 Kickstarter from Mantic Games is well underway...

DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game 2nd Edition Kickstarter Project Now Live
Lead your team to victory on the bloodstained pitches of the greatest sport ever played in this fast paced board game from Mantic!

DreadBall is the futuristic sports board game for 2 players. Take on the role of coach and attempt to outscore your opponent on the pitches of the far future by playing in one-off exhibition matches or galaxy-spanning leagues that showcase your grasp of strategy and tactics.
DreadBall - The Futuristic Sports Game Core Set
Includes 2nd Edition Rulebook, Pitch and 2 new teams: the Draconis All-Stars robots and Ninth Moon Tree Sharks Yndij plus a newly designed RefBot, Balls, Hex Bases, Cards, Counters and dice.
DreadBall 2nd Edition takes the feedback from countless matches and tournaments played around the world and updates the rules and team balance for a new era of furious galactic sport.

There is a new rulebook, streamlining the previous season books, redeveloping the league system and making improvements across the game. This book is included in a new boxed game, with two starter teams and redesigned components to enhance the overall gameplay. The DreadBall range already has quite a few teams, and every one of them will be balanced and competitive, with their own unique playstyle.

If you’re a veteran player, 2nd Edition takes everything you love about DreadBall and turn it up to 11! If you’re a new player, there will never be a better time to start playing the Galaxy’s Greatest Sport.

DreadBall 2nd Edition Now on Kickstarter

We’re developing DreadBall 2nd Edition through Kickstarter, where with the help of the community we will improve the rules, produce a new boxed game and fund the tooling for new miniatures in the range.
In addition we aim to create new miniatures and accessories for the range and create a strong community so you’re always supported! Our plan is that it’ll let you enjoy the galaxy’s greatest sport whilst reinvigorating the DreadBall scene for the veterans, and bring in a host of new players.

We’ve created a very simple 2 week Kickstarter around a great value pledge level called Striker ($100, MSRP $150) where you get the new boxed game, DreadBall Ultimate 2nd Edition, DreadBall Team Guide and 2 Kickstarter Exclusive Coaches. You can see the full contents here.

Not only this but we’ve created a number of limited edition ‘Early Bird’ specials allowing you to get Striker at a reduced rate of $90 – a little thank you from us for getting in early!

As is normal for a Mantic Kickstarter, we hope to break lots of stretch goals so that we can give you cool bonus figures and accessories, like extra teams, team captains and more…
