I know many of you will have seen this , but just in case you missed it this is the multi-team Ultimate DreadBall arena in all its neon glory.
This version takes up to 6 teams at once and is, as you might expect, somewhat anarchic. Loads of fun though 😉
So pretty – can’t wait to give this a try!
Love it! Can you sneak us any details, like how scoring works? I’m guessing each team has one and a half strike zones to defend, but which strike zones can they score in?
Any except their own, though different ones are worth different points.
Why do I see allot of players needing to be brought back from the dead after each game. I hope there is more than 1 refbot because it could get real messy on the pitch.
Only one Ref, and they stay in the centre.
Wow. Awesome. So this is for 3 and 6 players, right?
Jake, you still want ti give us information about the Judwan, prone cage and throw-in changes? I consider this erratas instead of new rules. So it would be cool to have the and not wait for S3 to be released.
Taking of release: is there a release date sceduled for S3?
Ermmm… Sorry for typos. Tiny iPhone + thick fingers
As far as I know, Mantic were playtesting 3, 4, 5 and 6 player games on these pitches (you’ll note that you can make a pitch by reversing the parts of 1.5 MDF or acryllic pitches).
Ultimate DB is for 3, 4, 5, or 6 players.
I can’t even imagine the chaos and carnage that results from this.
Is this going to be sold like this as a separate product?
I understand the S3 rulebook is a separate product, so I expect the Ultimate pitch will too… unless there’s a Dreadball Ultimate box set in the works.
I believe there will also be an option to buy the extra pieces to make this from the MDF or Acrylic pitches.
If you look at the Update via Kickstarter (I missed the KS myself, but still check up on the sight every few weeks for the latest updates) it does mention that it will be available for sale made of Mouse Mat material (similar to the Deadzone boards) and sold as a seperate product.
My questions are:
Will there be a Standard game board available in the same “rollable” material?
Will the hexes be slightly bigger then the original board to account for body parts sticking out when things start to cluster (and cluster they shall in a 6 player game)
Will there be a new starter set eventually with both boards and different teams then Orx and Humans?
In Regards to that last question, It might be nice to an “Ultimate Dreadball” box set eventually with three teams (Personal Preference is probably Humans, Robots, and Teratons) with the a condensed rule book, both game boards, both game decks, and a copy of whatever two MVPs aren’t selling well that can be used by at least two of those teams just to clear the shelves lol.
Just by looking at the board and not having played any games on the big board yet it looks like it could be used to play games where two coaches work together, so instead of having six teams bashing it out you could have 3 lots of 2 teams working together which could be fun, i dont know what this would do to the balance of the game though.
