I was a little sceptical at first but this looks like it could develop into something very nice. Likely to be faster than bb and more a speedball feel to it I think. Will have to pick up a copy.

Kickstarter details here:Dreadball


and some very interesting insights from the game deisgner Jake Thornton here:

I reckon it looks awesome. Gonna be getting at least the "Orcy" team if not the Kickstarter set.

Right, I'm in.

The deal is about £95 including shipping for the 4 teams and the game, plus the stars.

There is full team advancement and league play out of the box too.

I am sooo tempted. The Kickstarter just gets better and better. (I'd have to play the greenskin team).
There's also talk of a great looking female team and further rumours of a robot...

I'm in at striker level, a whole lot of goodie amassing, and as a teenage speedball addict, it's impossible to say no.

are we too late to try andclub together and get;

$850 - League Sponsor – 6 x Striker! Six of everything from Striker! + large league poster and promotions pack (including trophy set).

seems to be a fair bit of interest now. Makes the striker $141 rather than $150. I bet the promotion pack is good.

I've already pledged at Striker. If you can find a ttotal of 6 it might be possible to re-jig the pledges but not much time to do so. I am however really looking forward to this come Xmas time.

I'm curious about it but far from convinced yet. Probably need to watch some of the gameplay vids

Looking at the Cov forum there seem to be some takers on there too, which means it would almost be rude not to contemplate a little tournament in the new year... if game time is genuinely a little over an hour once you know the rules you could have a good sesh in a single dayer. Roll on Xmas and Dreadball under the tree...
