20 Questions With… Jake Thornton Designer of Dreadball and Ronnie and Chris From Mantic Games! A News Segment Where You Ask The Questions!

The miniatures gaming scene is a crowded market full of games covering every genre from elves with bows to futuristic juggernauts battling it out in space for galactic dominance. In this crowded scene it is hard to stand out from the next new thing but a company called Mantic Games is doing just that. Mantic Games is bringing together the best sculptors, game designers, artists, and writers from around the world to produce fantastic models that are fantastic to collect, fun to paint, and phenomenal to game with.

Well known industry veteran and game designer Jake Thornton who you can learn more about on his blog quirkworthy has teamed up with Mantic Games to produce the kickstarter.com success DREADBALL which recently completed a highly successful, $728,985 campaign!! Dreadball looks to bring some fantastic miniature based  gameplay meshed with a brutal futuristic sport that will make for some really entertaining one off game and/or league play. Combining elements of Lacrosse, Hockey, and a little bit of Rugby Dreadball is set to resurrect and immensely improve upon a game that was near and dear to my heart growing up as a young board gamer. It’s no secret that Blood Bowl is the only game I have ever played to get a perfect 10 from me and yet DreadBall is about to take that formula to 11!
