DreadBall Second Edition – the fast-paced, futuristic sports game – is available to pre-order now from Mantic, ahead of its retail release on March 19th.
The Second Edition introduces new teams, re-balanced stats and streamlines the rules to make it more action-packed than ever.
For those who are just starting their DreadBall career, the new Boxed Game provides the perfect entry point. Choose from the agile Ninth Moon Tree Sharks or the unstoppable Draconis All-Stars before taking to the pitch and going for glory. Outwit your rival coach with tactical set pieces, push your luck with daring plays, or just smash your opponent to the ground with brutal tackles. When the game begins, anything goes…
The boxed game comes with 29 miniatures (including two teams with 12 players each), a double-sided game board and rulebook to get you started in the game. What’s more, those who pre-order the game from the Mantic website before March 19th will receive a free, limited edition Blaine MVP! After March 19th, Blaine will become a show exclusive miniature.
Also available to pre-order now is the DreadBall Second Edition Collector’s Rulebook. This mighty 210-page tome is perfect for the experienced DreadBall player, as it contains rules for all the existing DreadBall teams, along with rules for giants, leagues and more. This will be a limited print run, so once it’s gone, it’s gone!
Talking of existing players, if you fancy picking up two brand new teams, then look no further than the Matsudo Tectonics and the New Eden Revenants. The Tectonics are a team of honourable space lizards that might play by the rules but don’t mind getting stuck in when it counts. Meanwhile the New Eden Revenants are a collection of famous DreadBall players brought back from the dead. They may be slow but they’re hard to stop!
Finally, if you want to add a little random fun to your games, then the DreadBall Event Deck is the perfect option. This set includes 26 Event Cards that trigger a range of wild events, like exploding balls, malfunctioning machinery and rioting fans. Mix these into the standard DreadBall deck and no two games will ever play the same! Plus, the Event Deck comes with the special resin Elmer & Dobbs card stand. Slot the current Event Card behind the commentators to make sure you’ll never miss any special effects.
All these products are available to pre-order now from the Mantic website or your local game store. They are due to launch on March 19th.

TECH? NO! Forget about expensive game systems, emulators, disconnected online games, and high-priced yearly roster updates. TECHNO BOWL takes everything you love about arcade and video game football classics like Tecmo Bowl, NFL Blitz, and Madden and puts it all on the tabletop.
And as if that isn’t cool enough, it also gives you a feature that gamers have long asked for but never gotten… until now! What is it, you ask? As a coach in TECHNO BOWL, you will design your own formations and plays. That’s right. Let me say it again. You get to design your own formations and plays on the fly!
