sci fi board game

Dreadball is a sci-fi american football game where hard hits are the norm and crazy things will show up on the field to do battle.  The original Dreadball was released in 2012 and since then it has had multiple teams added to the game and five seasons worth of rulebooks released, so it’s time for a reboot.  Dreadball 2.0 will have all the great gameplay you remember from the original, but streamlined and updated.  As said on the Kickstarter; “The new edition grew out of demand from the community. For existing players, DreadBall 2nd Edition is all about streamlining the rules, improving the components, supporting the community and getting it growing all over again.”  The rulebook will compile all the previous rulebooks into one edition, have information for all the existing teams, as well as updated rules for the ultimate game for 3-6 players.

Overall the game looks good and will come with enough figures to play right out of the box, no assembly required.  If this new edition sounds interesting to you then head on over to the Kickstarter page to pledge before it ends on August 7th.
