2020 marks the third year of BreadDoll Blogging.  ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY posts about the greatest game in the galaxy.  Every week; Geoff, Lee, or Andrew serve up slices.  We have different voices with different perspectives.  For a spread analogy, it’s like Geoff is jam, Lee is preservative, and Andrew is straight-up marmalade.

In soft celebration of three editors surviving three years together, this bakery is serving three loaves in three days.  This triple helping of BreadDoll is timely.  The United States of America (Earth Planet) is hosting a naive event in two days.  Its popularity has reached such staggering proportions, huge swaths of the entire world population somehow find a broadcast to view.  A cruel spectacle of manhandling will be witnessed by viewers divided into camps both for and against.  The outcome has been forecast and bets are wagered, but anything is possible.  A groundhog may see its shadow.

Also, there’s a Super Bowl.

48 hours before kick-off, The BreadDoll is pleased to shill.  Mantic Games is celebrating the sports weekend with a sporty sale.  It’s the second annual SUPER MEGA CUP SALE!  Steals and Deals?  Yes.  Yes, there are plenty.  Especially if a Coach needs to expand their Coaching Staff.

  • Cheerleaders
  • Coaches
  • “Sponsors” (ostensibly, more Coach models)
  • Event Deck

Each are priced to levels only Bobby would bargain.  Two items however, are just Bobby bonkers.

  1. The Web DreadBall Team Bundle.  Ten teams = $80 USD.  That’s too good to be true.  And seemingly – it is.  There are only two is stock.
  2. The Galactic Tour expansion.  $20 USD.  That’s awesome.  Cheerleaders, Coaches, a Medbot, plus a jungle cat and an indigenous trophy.   Those are just the models!  An alternative ruleset and card deck to play on the planet Azure is in there, not to mention the league handbook.  Seriously.  Best Buy.

Aaaaaand…  Mantic is not done.  Gains are important, but so are GAMES.  Keep it clean Coaches!  A new FAQ / Errata has been released!  Clarifications and adjustments will make everyone’s pitch time even more perfect.  Head to the Mantic site and find their Free Rules.  Download and become high information.


And at the very end of the document?  There’s a surprise.  If you think you’ve seen bad officiating this season on Earth Planet (NFL, MLB, FIFA, etc), wait until you see this Bad Call.

This is bad.

Thanks for reading the BreadDoll.  We love DreadBall, and we hope it shows.  Come back this weekend for more.  More Bread.  More Dread.

Saturday – a roundtable discussion about GIANTS.

Sunday – a Coaches’ Corner interview with JAMES HEWITT.

Steals and Deals: New Year’s Resolutions

Welcome to 2020 all Earth Coaches!  For your consideration, the BreadDoll suggests for the following playbook option:

  • Mantic Games is offering a ‘Cyber Sale’ until January 2.  If you don’t have a PDF of the 2nd edition Rulebook, now is the time.  Also for consideration: a first edition bundle and xtreme compilation.  While they both have limited function with 2nd edition rules, the images are (always) great, and the fluff is well written.  But perhaps most importantly is the FREE STUFF.  Captain cards, Martian rules, rosters…  Download and be done.
  • Also…  Just saying…  The DreadBall Core Game 2nd Edition is on sale for $49.99 USD.  It includes the Collectors Edition rulebook.  Seriously.  Buy a second copy.

With New Year purchases resolved, why not commit to goodwill in 2020?
