Fresh Coast Dreadball League – Pre-Season Try-Outs on January 26th @ 4pm

Fresh Coast Dreadball League – Pre-Season Try-Outs
January 26th 4pm - 7pm @ Gamers Sanctuary, Flint

DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game is a fast and fun tactical miniatures sports board game, created by Mantic Games.

Gamers Sanctuary and Fresh Coast 40k are teaming up once again to deliver Dreadball to mid-Michigan gamers. We’re testing the waters with a demo day on January 26th from 4pm to 7pm at the store. We’ll have several teams to try out and everything you need to give Dreadball a spin.

In Dreadball, two coaches basically compete for victory with teams of sci-fi miniatures, on a highly stylized game board. The game is easy to learn yet tactical, with carefully orchestrated plays and counter attacks hinging on positioning and the mercy of the dice gods.

You can download the rules here and quick reference sheets here.
And we’ll have copies available to everyone at the demo.

Ideally, we’d like to get 4 or more folks interested in playing once every week or so in an FC40k organized league. There’s some fun league mechanics that allow you to grow your players, sign free agents, bid for MVPs (essentially the Independent Characters of the Dreadball universe), and more.

I purchased the DreadBall starter box set (see below), the first in the series to be supported and it includes two teams & everything you need to start playing. Future expansions will introduce new teams, new arenas and will expand gameplay with exciting new rules, building on the already impressive 84 page full colour rulebook.

More info on the pre-season try-out demo day here.
Hope to see you there!


  1. I'll be there with my Wolverines and Spartans!

  2. muggins picked up the rats and tau4eva is looking at his options too.

  3. Just played my first three Dreadball games tonight. The rules are very simple (especially with the handy flow chart Dustin found) and the learning curve isn't bad at all. The first game took almost two hours, but the next only an hour and the third less than that. There is a lot of room for strategy and tactics and it can be very cinematic. All in all, an excellent game that I am looking forward to playing more of soon!

  4. Orks are mean, but without strikers, they can be a tough team to score with. I'm liking the balance of the human team, and the speedy rats are intriguing.

    One week till demo day!
