...new teams any-one?
DreadBall gets bigger with Season 4 and new teams!
We always wanted to bring Dreadball back to kickstarter - to add more teams and more fun - but just a few teams didn't seem, well - Mantic enough!!
So we now have Dreadball Xtreme – the underground version of Dreadball.
Because all the miniatures work for both Xtreme and DreadBall Original we thought hard about the best way to present this:
The Season books will focus on the rules for the 4 new teams from the kickstarter and how they play in DreadBall Original, and will add some other rules for the game. ALL the rules for Xtreme (for original and new team stats) will be covered in the Xtreme Player Manual includes in Rampage and up!
We think this will give the clearest and cleanest split between the two games - and it also means that theDreadBall Kickstarter just became DreadBall 2 – as all the new teams get rules and add into the basic game!!

We recommend a pledge of Rampage!!
It is exactly 1 week after the launch and it’s safe to say that Objective A was achieved in record time! We reached our funding goal of $100,000 in 38 minutes, and we’ve nearly completed Objective B – four new teams and the Season 4 Rulebook!
But we don’t want to stop there!
To say thank you we’re going to give Rampagebackers even more value-for-money by including mini-teams of 8 Plague Players and 8 Mechanite players straight into the pledge level!
We're moving on to Season 5 very shortly, whereRampage will also be able to pick a Season 5 team of your choice – if we dare to dream, we’ll do the same with a Season 6 team too!
So what does this mean? Well, it means Rampage backers keep their ability to get a team of your choice (from Season 5!) AND gets two mini-teams bundled in as well, at no extra cost. That's 16 more players added to your pledge without you having to lift a finger!
Pledging on the project now means that more stretch goals will be added free to the pledge levels, unlocking more teams and MVPs and improving the value across the board even further. We really appreciate any support we get.
Thanks for reading.
