It sounds like you’ll be dealing with rain and much, much worse when the heavens open on these different worlds. I love the idea of playing somewhere which is a bit more dangerous for all involved. The crowd too can be more influential with new event cards spicing things up.
To help get you started this year Mantic are also offering a free Extra Time pack for everyone who buys DreadBall Kick-Off before the end of the month. That should certainly get you going DreadBall wise.
Remember of course that Mantic are going back to Kickstarter soon as well with DreadBall Xtreme coming in February.
It’s quite possibly the right time to get into this game.
