Hello and welcome to the DreadBall Kickstarter as it heads into its final days!

Thank you for stopping by and supporting DreadBall – your support is helping bring this game to gaming clubs and local hobby stores this Christmas – and because of your incredible support it is more awesome than we could have imagined.

Thanks, Ronnie.

To help you out with a pledge, we've put together this handy little guide:

To get all of the great game experience, including everything you need to play plus a great selection of stretch goals, bonus extras and goodies, we recommend a pledge of Rampage!

DreadBall Xtreme is the underground sports game of the future and the follow-up to the hit board game DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game.

Are you ready for an all-new ball game?

Please note that products are fully compatible with original DreadBall.

 Want to know more about DreadBall?

In DreadBall Xtreme, two teams battle it out on the pitch to outscore each other, with all new twists:

- No Referee = More Violence for Everyone: with no one to stop the bloodshed, anything goes! Sucker punches and stomps are the norm, and the introduction of explosive collars, deadly traps and bloodsucking aliens only increase the level of violence.

- Customize your Battlefield: games are organized in prisons and warehouses at a moment’s notice, using industrial scenery to shake things up - everywhere from the scoring zone to the ball launch location can change!

- Play as Enigmatic Sponsors: the powerful organizers behind the game, Sponsors dictate your play-style and are experts in intimidation, blackmail and illegal gambling. Best of all, Sponsors allow you to build entirely unique teams out of any player combination you like!

DreadBall Xtreme Boxed Game

This self-contained box game contains all you need to play DreadBall Xtreme, including two fantastic teams and a deluxe rubber-backed full-color pitch. There is even a set of Free Agents that you can include in your team, two Sponsor models and amazing plastic scenery!

* All miniatures in the box come pre-assembled

Xtreme Expansion Sets

Taking DreadBall Xtreme to the next level is the Xpansion Set, that includes:

- Build your own team! The box includes 4 Sponsor miniatures plus all the rules you need to build your own custom team using players from any team!

- DreadBall Player Manual - All the rules you need to play Xtreme with the 12 existing DreadBall teams, 8 Xtreme team PLUS 4 new Sponsor Models with new unique playstyles.

- Multi-tile Customisable Pitch - meaning you can create your own unique designs or play in some of the exciting layouts that we've created.

- Multiplayer rules, Giant players and more!

Standard shipping to UK and US backers is free.

If you would like to back this project and are based in the EU, please add $10 to your pledge total.

If you would like to back this project and are based in Canada, please add $15 to your pledge total.

If you would like to back this project and are based in the rest of the world, including Australia, please add $25 to your pledge total.

All backers have the option of tracked courier shipping. This costs $15 on top of any shipping costs above. Therefore, to have their shipment sent by tracked courier, a US backer would pay $15, and a Spanish backer would pay a total of $25.

Note that courier shipping is already included in the FRENZY pledge level, but you will still need to pay the shipping amount listed above depending on your location.
 
Courier shipping is mandatory for all backers from Africa or South America, so you must add a total of $40 for shipping if you live in one of these continents.

Risks and challenges

Delivering a Kickstarter is the hardest part of the project. We’ve successfully delivered three Kickstarters, as well as more than half of our Deadzone Kickstarter, with the remainder shipping as planned in June.

Furthermore, our fifth Kickstarter - Mars Attacks The Miniatures Game - is developing very well and will begin shipping on schedule in Q3 later this year. Check out the Kickstarter page for all of the latest updates.

Mantic has experience in sculpting, tooling and delivering Kickstarters – something that can be very difficult to get right. Models being too big to fit on tools and overspending is a challenge, but with careful management we’ve experience in handling that.

The other challenge is delays from the manufacturer – something that has meant we’ve gone down to the wire on a number of occasions with sculpting deadlines and delivery to our warehouse. We’ve deliberately added a couple of extra months to our shipping date to cater for this, meaning we can work on checking the quality of everything that comes through.

FAQ

  • Choose your reward level and then increase the pledge amount by the value of the extra(s) you'd like. For example, a Rampage pledge + an extra team would mean a total pledge of $165. We will then send a survey out after the Kickstarter so we can ask you what you want for the increased pledge amount.

    This can be done using the "Manage my Pledge" button in the top right corner of this page. Just enter the total to cover your base reward level and any extras you like, and then once you submit the page Kickstarter will take you to Amazon to authorise the payment.

    You can change your pledge value any time before the end of the project. No payment will be taken until the project is funded on March 16th.

    Last updated:
  • That's absolutely fine! Simply select "No Reward" on the pledge page, and pledge an amount to cover the add-ons that you want at the prices listed. Shipping is charged as listed above on the main page. For example, if you wanted a set of Acrylic Counters ($15) and a Chovar ($10), and you live in France ($10 shipping) you would select No Reward and pledge a total of $35. You will select the exact items you want in the survey after the Kickstarter.

    Last updated:
  • You can select as many as you like - just increase your pledge as appropriate. For example, if you're at the Rampage reward ($150) and want a second one, just pledge a total of $300 - you can tell us that this is what you want at the end.

    If you're at an Early Bird level, then any additional reward levels of the same type will be at the same cost, so if your first one is costing you $140, then the second one will cost the same price!

    If appropriate, shipping is to be paid separately for each reward level, as each one needs to be sent as a separate package due to Royal Mail size restrictions. For example, if you want two copies of the Rampage reward and you live in New Zealand, you would have to pay the shipping twice for a total of $50.

  • Of course, the more people that pledge during the campaign, the more we will be able to create, but unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes and you can't afford everything at once.

    Not to worry - you will have the chance to add more in the survey following the Kickstarter - can you add more items or even change your reward level. Just back at what you can afford for now.

    We'll keep the survey open for a few months to give you a chance to work out exactly what you want.

  • Simply message us through Kickstarter using the link at the top of the page, and we'll put you in touch with our trade team who can run through what's available and how to pledge!

  • The miniatures are the industry standard 28-30mm scale (distance from base to eye level for a human figure), and are therefore compatible with the vast majority of other miniatures on the market. Obviously with such a huge range of alien races the exact size will vary depending on the figure.

    Last updated:
  • The miniatures are made in multiple pieces, but provided fully assembled (unless stated otherwise), and made from highly detailed grey plastic. The material is a type of PVC commonly used in board games such as Fantasy Flight Games’ Gears of War and our very own Loka. This allows us to have a high level of detail whilst keeping the dynamic poses required for such a fast-paced game, and of course making them very affordable as you would expect from Mantic.

    Note that this material is not the harder PVC commonly known as “restic”, and is not sprued hard plastic.

    The bases, which come unattached to the figures, are made from hard plastic.

    Last updated:
  • All of the Kickstarter rewards will be shipped directly from our warehouse in Nottingham, UK, so our EU backers will not have to pay import taxes.

    Last updated:
  • Unless you select courier shipping, all pledges of the Uproar level and below will be dispatched using Royal Mail, with no tracking number. Due to Royal Mail size restrictions the Rampage and Uproar pledges will ship in two separate packages.

    If you select courier shipping, your package will be sent via UPS or Fedex, and will be tracked.

    If you select a pledge that already includes courier shipping but would prefer a Royal Mail shipment, you will have the option to choose this in the survey but be aware that it may incur an additional cost due to your shipment being split into multiple packages.

    Last updated:
  • The customs form on your package will be marked with the value of the contents exactly as listed on Kickstarter, with no exceptions. For example, if you have pledged at the Rampage level ($150) and selected no add-ons, your package will be marked with a value of $150. If you had also selected add-ons to the value of $50 over and above your pledge level, the package would be marked with a value of $200.

    The cost of shipping will not be included in the value marked on the customs form. The package will also be marked as a gift.

    Please check with your local customs office for any charges that may apply to your shipment as you will be responsible for these.

  • Here at Mantic we don't want to release figures through Kickstarter that will then penalise customers who miss out on the campaign. However, we do want to keep our Kickstarter exclusives a little bit special. Therefore, although our exclusive releases will never be sold at retail, they will be available later via the Mantic Points Scheme on our website, or offered as promotional figures at conventions that we attend.
