Azure Forest In the Strikezone - Dreadball's Success Rolls on with a New Limited Edition

To celebrate the 5th Print of Dreadball, Mantic Games is offering a Limited Edition set with just 750 copies available.

Online PR News – 25-June-2014 – Nottingham, UK – Mantic Games announced on Friday that they would offer a limited edition copy of their highly popular board game, Dreadball, in a special Azure Forest release.

This limited edition is made up of just 750 copies and features an all-new, special edition Azure Forest pitch to play on. This collector's edition contains all of the models and rules you need to play straight away and is the last chance to obtain a copy of the Azure Forest add-on, all packaged in a box designed especially for the release.

"DreadBall has brought joy to cheering fans all over the world, as the hopes of many budding coaches have been dashed by last minute strikes or bone-crushing slams. Now it's time to take the fun to the alien jungles of Azure IX, where the natives and the weather itself influences the outcome of matches," said Marketing Coordinator, Chris Palmer. "DreadBall has performed incredibly well over the last 18 months, where only half of the first print run went to Kickstarter backers. This is testament to Kickstarter's ability to bring a product that then goes on to be even more successful at trade to market. We thoroughly look forward to bringing hobbyists the fifth edition of DreadBall - The Futuristic Sports Game in its new Azure Forest guise."

Dreadball was launched on Kickstarter, September 30, 2012. Since then, Mantic Games has spawned another Kickstarter in the form of Dreadball Xtreme, introduced 12 new teams and 3 new season books for DreadBall. They are now taking pre-orders for the new Azure Forest boxed set, which begins shipping to all good hobby stores in July.
DreadBall Deluxe is currently out of stock.

The Azure Forest boxed set contains the Azure Forest rules, a special MVP, A'Teo and a newly printed board (which is also available for those who want it separately), and two teams, giving you the chance to get started playing straight away. The contents of the box is limited to 750 copies and is currently available for pre-order at the Mantic Games website.

"It was important to us to use graphics that were appropriate, so we've completed this set with a gorgeous pitch based on the designs by FF Fields," says Chris Palmer. "It's something extra special that really ties the piece together," he added.
