Good news!

As of tomorrow, the last of the DreadBall Shipment 3 packages will have shipped!

We’re down to our last lot of packages and the guys and gals in the warehouse are steaming along trying to get as many out today as possible - it's going to be close, but to be safe we're going to say that it looks they'll all be done by tomorrow. 

This means that we’ve sent out Season 3 Teams, Giants, MVPs, Acrylic pitches, MDF pitches, accessories, Team Boosters and more over the past couple of weeks!

The whole business has pitched in to try and ensure that everything was shipped as quickly as possible, and we’re all really pleased to have nearly completed the operation.

Expect the unexpected 

As it stands we have had one or two expected problems or delays along the way, not least the Ultimate Cards and Counters being late from our manufacturers.

Not only this but a very small minority of packages that are currently being dispatched are doing so without the Season 2 Team Boosters and/or Season 3 Rulebook.

Back at the start of September we recognized we wouldn’t have enough of either of these, so we placed orders for more. Unfortunately this delivery has never arrived, so we’ve taken the decision to part-ship these last few orders to get stuff into people’s hands we wait for it to turn up. You can expect a small package in the post following this delivery that will include your missing items.

We are very sorry about this, but we hope that your digital copy of the rulebook (which was sent to you several weeks ago) will let you start making use of you’re the miniatures you have received. If you have not yet downloaded your copy, and cannot find the link, please email sarah.clark@manticgames.com and Sarah will sort it out for you.

To say sorry, anyone who has been affected by the part-shipped orders will receive something extra in their package.

A New Year, A New Competition

All in all, we’re really pleased to have finished shipping DreadBall and we can’t wait to hear about how your games and leagues are going.

Now that the game is nearly a year old, we’re going to be celebrating at our Open Day on the 30th November with a charity tournament.

You can find out more details here – and grab your ticket at the same time!

Not only that but in the New Year we’re going to be releasing a new league pack for our 2014 cup competition. Look out for more details on that coming soon!

And finally…

Here are the customizable inlays for you to download.

The files are designed to fit our 25mm small white cases and allow you to add your team name, player names and more.

File 1 File 2 File 3 File 4

We recommend printing your inlay as soon as you've filled it in, as you can't save your changes. 

Many thanks for your patience during this time – we’ve tried to go as fast as we can but unfortunately delays got the better of us in places. We hope you’re enjoying your games and continue playing the Galaxy’s Greatest Sports Game!

Hmm, wouldn’t it be fun if we went again?

      I have not yet received my 3rd shipment. Should I be concerned? Has anyone else not yet gotten theirs?

      I would be curious to know how many orders had missing or incorrect items in them. Seems like quite a few, based on the posts. Then again, looking in here is like visiting the hospital...everyone seems to be sick. heh heh

      Jasper: That makes two of us, as I got a Season 2 book and not a Season 3 book.

      I got a package today. Whoohoo.

      But what I also found out is that I got a season 2 book with it and not a season 3 book. I will check the rest tomorrow and mail about it ;-)

      I have to say I am not very satisfied that they sent me so many metal figures. I really don't want to have five teams that are half metal out of the 12 I got.

      I don't want to sound overly critical, but they could also have numbered what they sent as I found it incredibly time consuming to identify what part was what. I think a couple of prones are missing but I just can't say for sure.

      But the metal shipment is a dealbreaker for me!

      So finally the wait is over. Love the ultimate pitch now of to learn the new rules for multiplayer mayhem.

      @Tasker, totally agree, still waiting for my season 2 order despite it being at UK port for over a month

      Is it wrong to be thinking that getting an 'extra s something' instead of the rule book initially could be exciting!?! What could it be? I'm sort of half hoping that I am in that category..... Well done for finally getting it all sorted!

      Since the ancient times of early tabletop-gaming it is known, that you have to wait ages to receive orders that include miniatures...

      ...it's a law. Just like Gravity.

      Sounds like a monumental task is nearly done. One more batch of packages, tons of happy gamers and a lot of potential for the future.

      Ok. Where the hell did I get the name Steve from? I wasn't even thinking that as I typed it.

      I of course meant Stewart.

    12. Gilbert%20150.small

      Creator Tasker on October 21, 2013

      It wasn't the figures or book that was missing from mine, it was the pitch. :-(

      I emailed Steve though and he's going to sort it. So i'm not panicking 'just' yet. lol

      Yay means mine might show up in next 3 weeks

      Creator Keith on October 21, 2013

      My package hasn't arrived yet, which makes me concerned that my season 3 rulebook will be missing, yes I have the digital copy, but I ordered a hardcopy for a reason. Do you have an estimate of when the missing pieces will be sent out?

    15. Mugshot.small

      Creator euansmith on October 21, 2013

      I can't remember if you have already addressed this point, but is there some way of swapping metal miniatures for restic ones? I've received a fair number of metal minis and would really rather have waited until a later shipping date if it meant I could have avoided this.

      Other than that, congratulations on your progress. I hope Dreadzone is going to be metal free.

      I recieved my season 3 pack today :) But I got 2 ultimate pitches?? I don't think I order 2, would be nice to be able to see full invoice on what I order and compare to the delivery slip of what was inside the box to see if I am missing anything or over order on items.

      Did the prone and alternate pose figures ship as well

      With everything shipping out I've yet to reveive an invoice for the ultimate pitch add on for my order?
      Or did that get missed?
