Wave 2 Shipping Complete!


Sports Fans!

The DreadBall Xtreme Wave 2 shipping has been completed – we're just waiting for a bulk collection to get these final orders left out the front door and then we’re done!

Thanks to everyone for their patience whilst we’ve completed this work and got everything in the post.

Rate DreadBall Xtreme

DreadBall Xtreme was created thanks to your helped. It’ll be available globally from retailers in March this year (3 months after you got it!) If you’ve tried the game and love it as much as we do, please leave a review and rate the product on our website.

Until next time Sports Fans, when we’ll bring you more information on the remaining items for this Kickstarter. Here's a little preview ;)

As you can see, this see-through blue plastic miniature has had a little paint and a wash added to allow you to see the detail in the photography. Cool, huh?!

Let us know what you think in the comments!

And the fans go wild!


DreadBall Xtreme Sports fans - the second shipment of DreadBall goodness started shipping today!

We’re mostly shipping DreadBall Season 4 and Original DreadBall items in this shipment, meaning you’ll get some brand new teams to play with, and some old ones too if you’ve pledged for them.

To find out the full list of what’s shipping when, view our updated DreadBall Xtreme Mission Control page (updated 19/01/15).

We’re moving full steam ahead on Season 5, Season 6 and the Xpansion which are all written and currently in lay-out. We can’t wait to share these and the new teams with you over the coming weeks and months!


DreadBall Xtreme Shipment 2 begins today and we expect it to take up until the 31st January to complete, possibly sooner. You will receive a dispatch email when yours has been shipped. Please do not email us asking where your shipment is before the 31st January. We will keep you updated on when shipping has been completed.

Please note that anyone who has chosen courier shipping will have that method of shipping applied to their biggest, heaviest parcel, which will be the third shipment later in the year (around May/June time).

Missing Items

If you’ve submitted a missing items form since you received your first shipment you will find your missing components in your Wave 2 box.

Due to such large and complex picking operations, sometimes mistakes happen. If you do find yourself missing anything please fill out the form here and we’ll send you the missing component out as quickly as we can.

If you need to remind yourself of what you’ve ordered then please login to the pledgemanager here and review your order.

Your DreadBall Xtreme Second Shipment is nearly on it's way! Let us know in the comments which bit you're most excited for!

Season 4 coming soon...


Happy 2015 everyone!

Hot on the heels of the DreadBall Xtreme Boxed Game shipped before Christmas, Season 4 is on it's way to you very shortly.

DreadBall Xtreme

Before Christmas we shipped out the special Kickstarter-only print run of the DreadBall Xtreme boxed game.

DreadBall Xtreme hits retailer shelves in March, meaning you’ve got the game, especially printed just for you, three months early.

We spent a lot of time and money to ensure that we got this out before Christmas, so we really hope that you enjoyed opening and playing with it.

We think it has some of our best visuals and production values yet, but what we really want to know is what do you think about it? Let’s see your paint jobs, let’s hear about your games – what do you think about DreadBall Xtreme? Let us know in the comments and on Facebook!

New Season, Fresh Blood

DreadBall Season 4 begins shipping in two weeks to Kickstarter backers.

The January shipment will also contain the Original DreadBall items.

Watch out for a future update for more details!

Xtreme Mission Control now live!


Earlier in the week, we completed the DreadBall Xtreme Boxed Game dispatch!

To make things clearer regarding what you should have received and when, we’ve set up DreadBall Xtreme Mission Control which lists everything in the three shipments, subject to the best information available at the time (as we know, pesky gremlins sometimes slow things down).

Go here to check out DreadBall Xtreme Mission Control now!

The seasons they are a-changin’

To celebrate the completed dispatch of DreadBall Xtreme we have just started sending out the digital copies of DreadBall Season 4 to your Kickstarter inbox! Please be aware that there's a really large volume of messages, so it might not show up straight away.

Schnorkel, Irsala and Grak!

When it’s come to designing the books we’ve shifted around some of the teams to better fit with the rules and our release schedule. That means the names of the Seasons and where some of the teams have been positioned have changed a little bit.

Here’s the final breakdown:

Season 4: Brokkrs, Sphyr, Rebs and Hobgoblins

Season 5: Asterians, Convicts, Mechanites and Plague Mutants

Season 6: Koris, Ada-Lorana, Crystallans and Tsudochan

As you can see, it’s mostly just the names of Season 4 and 5 swapping around. We’ll make sure that what you’ve pledged for is updated to reflect this.

If this affects you in any way, just drop us a quick PM and we’ll sort it out for you no problem. Generally this shouldn’t cause anyone an issue though ☺

And finally...

We hope everyone enjoys reading the Season 4 rulebook and playing DreadBall Xtreme. Let us know what you think of the boxed game and new miniatures in the comments, as well as the Season 4 rules.

Be sure to check out Mission Control as well to stay up to date with all the details. We'll keep it updated it as new information and new pictures become available.

And finally, this is likely to be our last update before the Christmas Holidays so from everyone here at Mantic, we just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

DreadBall Xtreme Game is shipping!


Great news! The DreadBall Xtreme Boxed Games will begin shipping this week!

It was really important to us that you had your DreadBall Xtreme game to put under the Christmas tree, so we’ve done a special print run just for the Kickstarter and have been working overtime to get them all boxed up and ready to go out to meet the last recommend shipping date.

We're shipping just the DreadBall Xtreme game this side of Christmas. There will be a second package after Christmas, likely in January which will contain Season 4 and some of the third-party add-ons.

A third package will arrive later in 2015 with the remaining teams, Xpansion set and all of the outstanding items.

We will keep you updated with progress and also when we've completed shipping, which may take a week or two to complete.

Until then!
