Tubes, have you pledged on the DreadBall 2 Kickstarter? I think a second edition is needed, and welcome the consolidation of all the teams into a single book. The new board looks good (note its a board not a mat), and the new figures are bound to be an improvement over the initial release.

I’m lukewarm about them introducing special D6, instead of the previous XD6 mechanic; but if it provides better definition between the 24+ teams, so much the better. I don’t think DreadBall’s problem is a shortage to teams, yet we’re getting at least 2 more. I’m less than convinced that a $112 (inc. P&P) Mantic Kickstarter is offering value; that’s something like £85!!! There are retailers who will be selling this 20% off MSRP and offering free postage. To assume £85 is a comparable (if not better) price, then the MSRP must be at least £105. I just don’t see it.

Edit: I see Mantic had advised what the MSRPs.

DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game (MSRP $80) ~£60
DreadBall Team Guide (MSRP $25) ~£20
DreadBall Ultimate expansion (MSRP $25) ~£20

Very confident we’ll see the basegame available at £50 and expansions nearer £16.
