Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

DreadBall: The Futuristic Sports Game is the hyper-kinetic sci-fi sports game of unparalleled speed and ferocity – a fast, fun and tactical miniature sports board game written by Jake Thornton and created by Mantic Games.

Two coaches compete for victory with teams of beautiful miniatures on a stunning sci-fi pitch. The game is easy to learn, yet challenging, with carefully orchestrated plays and counter attacks hinging on positioning and the mercy of the dice gods.

Created by the finest sculptors, artists and game designers, DreadBall: The Futuristic Sports Game is the first in a series of visually stunning sci-fi sports games, to be supported with expansions introducing new teams and exciting new game play, building on the already impressive 84-page full-colour A4 rulebook.

2 League rules for 2 players
Are you lacking of motivated players to start a league? You have a good gaming partner but feel like you are missing the thrill of developping the players' skill, uncovering a new set of tactics bringing MVPs into the game? Well, you are right. League play brings Dreadball to a superior level. Once you've tried it, it's rather hard to come back to one-off games with the basic teams. Try these easy rules that will get you hooked forever to this great board game you've once bought. It will make it come off the shelf a lot more regularly than you've used it so far and you'll always be craving to have that next game where your key player will either lead the team to landslide victory thanks to his awesome combo skills or be recycled to pet food... Enjoy!

9 Dreadball Officially Unofficial Ruleset
This is an unofficial ruleset that includes: 1) Official balance changes since Dreadball Original, 2) The "latest known experimental rules from Mantic/Jake/the RC", 3) Updates from Dreadball Xtreme there's no reason not to have in DBO and 4) Some small additions to make them coherent (e.g. "Slide" needs to change if Jacks can Dash). It will be updated as often as needed.
