yeah,
I hope one of the reward levels has just the rules tokens and board.
I would love to play this with 40k armies.

SM vs Eldar or Orks vs CSM

Awesome!
I might buy this just for the rules and ditch the minis on eBay.

Well, I've just been sent an advance copy of the rules .pdf, so any questions, fire away..
we can't ask questions since we have no knowledge of its contents.
You could post the PDF and if we have trouble reading it we'll ask you for help.

So how does this compare to Bloodbowl?
Why would you even ask that? This has nothing to do with Bloodbowl. It's completely original ...
Which is why he would ask for a comparison. you know how does this compare against the market leader.

yeah...
DreadBall is completely original.
Spoiler:



I hear they have already planned an Expansion pack 'PandoraBall', games are played in corridors and rooms, in space.
You have to search cargo boxes for the ball before you can score.

Does Elf Ball get this much hate?
Too obscure or everyone uses them for BB Proxies ...

Bingo!
Elfball is like pizza shop run by some wise guys.
Sure some people might buy the pizza or a copy of elfball.. but that's not were the real money is being made.

yeah,
Indeed.
And once we have more info about the rules (maybe squig will post the pdf and stop clamering for attention...) we can decided if we want to buy the not-bloodbowl game.

speaking of attentionseekers... oh did you consider he's probably allowed to answer questions, but **not** to post the PDF?
That doesn't make any sense why else did they release it to him if not to build hype.
No one knows or cares who he is, It's implied that he's ment to leak the PDF.

yeah,
There's not much to discuss at the moment since the kickstarter isn't live and the mantics 'leaks' are not doing their job of passing on the .pdf ...

So what else we gonna talk about other than the obvious comparrisons and what we might hope to get from the game.

I'm a big fan of both bloodbowl and speed ball.
I'm not a fan of mantic sci fi orks although the humans look pretty good.

I'm really only interested in the rules and the board.
If the kickstarter offers a choice of teams and you can pick two human teams Like speedball I'd be more tempted to buy.
