What is DreadBall?
"NO! Not possible! Not possible! Last ditch, bone-crunching slam from Rikkit and Partenza's in a heap, his body mangled! And there's blood on the pitch yet again from a Trontek Player. This is carnage Jim!"

Why Kickstarter?
DreadBall 2nd Edition will enable you to play exciting pick-up games and unlock epic leagues that will be talked about by your gaming group for years to come. Our plan is that it’ll let you enjoy the galaxy’s greatest sport whilst reinvigorating the DreadBall scene for the vets, and bring in a host of new players.

DreadBall 2nd Edition will be spearheaded by a new boxed game, which will include the new rules and two new teams. The tooling and production of this will be funded by a simple, short Kickstarter launching on the 22nd July, which also builds awareness of its retail launch in 2017. If you take part you’ll get updated rules for every team and Dreadball Ultimate.
First Drafts of the Yndij Team
Before anyone gets worried about all their beautiful teams getting discontinued – the focus is on the rules and balance – and while we will add a couple of new teams to the core game (which will come as 1 piece figures to open the game up to a wider market) all the teams will be valid with the next edition. We just want to sort out the rules, make those improvements and get it growing all over again.

We hope that you’ll join us for a new season of the galaxy’s greatest sport. The Kickstarter goes live Friday 22nd July at 1:30pm (GMT), and closes at midnight (GMT) Sunday 7th August.
