Intergalactic Arenas

One word: pitches!

Both of these pitches have been significantly upgraded from the initial prototypes in response to your feedback and both are available at a special reduced Kickstarter prices that will never-be-seen-again.

Have at it! >:D

Co-prosperity Park – Intergalactic Sports Arena

Co-prosperity Park is a floating arena in the centre of the Diare district, a multi-trillion credit venue that has hosted such major-league finals as SlamBall IV and GloryBall 8. The stadium is in a constant state of noise, both from the cheers of the fans, shouting from the players and never-ending chatter from the vid-screens and advertising bots.

Get the full DreadBall Experience and play on a real neodurium (well, high-quality Acrylic!) pitch!
This premium game board breaks down into easy to store components and features a detachable rush track, score counter, sin bin, subs bench and Strike zones – it’ll even fit in the Mantic Battle Foam Bag!

Either use it to replace your game board or add it to your pledge as a complete second pitch!

Quadrant Zero Stadium

An older arena situated in the outer reaches, the Quadrant Zero Stadium is a former Enforcer base that has since been sold on to ZenaCorps, a merchant conglomerate with reported links to space piracy and smuggling. Quadrant Zero is in a severe state of disrepair and it’s reported every cycle that its license to hold DreadBall tournaments is openly under threat from Digby. 

Customise your pitch to the arena you want to play in!

This high quality MDF pitch can be painted so it looks the way you want it to – want to play on an ice world? Spray it white. Want a steely grey arena? Well you can do that too!

This kit can be used as a complete second game board and comes complete with removable rush track, score track, sin bins and subs bench. It breaks down into multiple pieces so that it can be carried around safely and even fits into the Battle Foam bag!

What else ya got?

Well, you can’t get playing a second game without cards so we’ve made the deck of 54 available in the extras*! You can also pick up a RefBot, counters and a Ball as well!

Note that the separate packs of cards have to be printed according to demand and will ship with the second package in Q2 2013.

We’re giving the main page a bit of a tidy up over the weekend and we have plenty of exciting goodies to look forwards to!

      I love the addition of the cards. Would it be possible to make the pitch that comes with the base game available for purchase on its own? The acrylic is pricey and the MDF means I to paint it, which means it won't look any good by the time I'm done.

      MDF = Medium Density Firberboard. Sort of like a plywood but it is smooth and solid. Nice for this sort of thing as it is flat and cuts cleanly. It is used by many to base terrain pieces or if you've seen those laser cut wooden building kits those are generally MDF.

      What is MDF?

      Would rather NOT have the pitch be clear acrylic. I think the black looks sharp. I am curious how the pieces will stay together though. Are there clips on the bottom or?

    5. Ben Thornton on September 20, 2012

      Will there be any chance of buying additional cardboard game boards from the original box set? At say $10-15.

      I'd be interested in buying an additional board but can't justify $80 or be bother painting the mdf one up. Then I could hold 2 games at once with minimum outlay (board plus ref plus cards added to striker package)

    6. Joseph coventry on September 20, 2012

      @mark awesome thanks. that for me is good news. I have big plans for that pitch

    7. Steamerni on September 20, 2012

      @matt Had that idea myself a four team free for all on a rhombus type pitch, have a friend who might be able to make one for me :-)

    8. Melior Via on September 20, 2012

      Thanks for adding the cards!

      Why don't you guys make the acrylic pitch out of translucent or clear acrylic instead? One could then place different printed maps underneath to give some variability and a nice shiny high-tech look. As it is now the Acrylic pitch is a great idea but it seems like you are paying more for less compared to the great looking printed pitch.

    11. Ropya on September 20, 2012

      Amy word on being able to purchase extra mdf strike zones like we can the acrylic ones?

    12. Paul on September 20, 2012

      What are the dimensions of the pitch?

    13. Malochai, Exiled in Torment on September 20, 2012

      Mantic have told me that the MDF board will be available after the KS, but the Acrylic and Acrylic inserts are not as sure because of the extra tooling costs ...

    14. Matt Houghton on September 20, 2012

      be nice if you could get some extra sections for the MDF that allows you to have a 4 player pitch :)

    15. Joseph coventry on September 20, 2012

      These will be available after kickstarter. I want a few mdf boards to make a few stadiums seats and all bit I'm stretched to max bid already? And if so do we know what price it will be

    16. Dan "The Dread Painter" Goodchild on September 20, 2012

      @Chris: No, it means that if you're at Striker or higher you can get it for $80 and if you're at a lower pledge level you can get it for $85.

    17. Anton Kuchman on September 20, 2012

      @Chris - it just means if you add the acrylic pitch to Striker or above you pay $80 instead of $85 for a $5 dollar discount.

    18. R2D2 on September 20, 2012

      How about those replacement acrylic strike zones to QZS??

    19. Chris Shockey on September 20, 2012

      It says "$85 if not adding to Striker or higher ". Does that mean I get the extra board of my choice free...?

      And to confirm, Striker has 2 set of counters,
      The normal set, and the Kickstarter set.

      so if you want to have 2 games running at the same time.

      you only need 1 playing field, 1 refbot and ball, and 1 set of playing cards

    21. Veaotch on September 20, 2012

      This makes me very happy! The MDF pitch has me very excited for the possibilities.

    22. Neil Shuck on September 20, 2012

      Great update - shows that Mantic listen to their customers...oh dear, that means my pledge goes up!

    23. Clive Weldon on September 20, 2012

      yaay for extra cards, thanks for listening :o)
