Judging by the number of excitable DreadBall fans at the Open Day last weekend, the game’s player base is growing at a rate of knots. For a game that’s about a year old, this is incredible – I’m still constantly amazed at how well it’s been received. Well, not entirely surprised; I’m incredibly proud of DreadBall, and I think it deserves to be as popular as it is!
Anyway! As well as the hordes of fans, there are also some third-party companies doing awesome licensed products. Here are a couple of them!
Amera Plastic Mouldings have made a rather snazzy addition to any collection – their DreadBall Stadium! This is a single-piece product moulded in white plastic, which fits a regular DreadBall board (or our MDF or acrylic versions). A quick lick of paint and you’re good to go!
Of course, you can do some really snazzy things if you want. Here’s a project we saw over at the Terrain and Toy Soldiers blog – there are loads of work-in-progress pictures over there.
If you want to get your hands on one of these, they’re available from Amera for a very reasonable £30.
ff-fields have been making custom boards for quite a while, and we’ve recently set up a licensing agreement with them to produce some for DreadBall! The process is easy – you come up with an idea for how you want your pitch to look, send it to them, pick your material and they do the rest! The possibilities are endless – custom colours, your team logo, whatever you like.
You can choose whether to get your board printed on a roll-up mat (a bit like our gaming mats for DreadBall Ultimate, Deadzone and Mars Attacks) or on a rigid, hard-wearing plastic that looks like you could spill as many drinks as you like on it and never spoil the playing surface! (This is very useful for me.)
These look amazing, and I’m definitely thinking of getting one for the Wranglers! Prices depend on what you want, but you can contact them for a quote and to see if your ideas are possible!
There we have it – two great additions to your DreadBall collection, either of which would make a great Christmas present as well. Let us know what you think in the comments, and get some pictures up on our Facebook page if you’ve already got your hands on one!
