GO CRAZY – THE BLOCK MANIA BOARDGAME IS BACK!

The hit game of the ‘80s – Block Mania – is back with a brand new edition from Rebellion Unplugged!

Rebellion is delighted to announce a limited edition re-issue of the classic board game based on the world of Judge Dredd – as well as the Mega-Mania expansion set, featuring the Happy Hour expansion!

Block Mania is the classic two-player game of manic destruction in Mega-City. Each player controls the citizens of an entire Mega-City block, as they attempt to destroy the block next door – or at least do it a lot of damage before the Judges arrive!

It brings the classic work of Space Hulk designer Richard Halliwell back to print for the first time in decades.

Relive the chaos of hives soaring in bat-suits; hungry alien Kleggs commandeering Sky-Rail cars; and City-Def forces infiltrating the neighbouring block to blow it to smithereens, before the Judges unleash the riot foam to shut you down!

Each box contains:

  • Two different, full-colour game boards – each depicting an entire Mega-City block.
  • 180 counters representing the Citizens, weapons and equipment of the blocks, as well as damage, collapse and fire markers.
  • A deck of 54 full-colour, double-sided playing cards, used to play numerous dirty tricks during the game. When the last card is played the quick fire endgame begins as the Judges arrive.
  • A detailed, comprehensive rulebook with extensive diagrams, examples of play and players’ notes giving tips on strategy and tactics.
  • A handy Blockers’ Manual telling players all about how to use the multitude of citizens, weapons, hardware and instruments of total destruction in the game.
  • And, of course, two six-sided dice! 

Mega-Mania expands Block Mania with additional counters and two new boards, allowing up to four players to join in the chaos at once.

And for the first time the Happy Hour expansion is also included, adding Robo-Dogs, Sucker Guns and Trip Mines to the fray!

Don’t miss this chance to grab a copy of this classic boardgame, so arm up and prepare to go crazy!

“feels like an old-school eighties RPG through-and-through” – geekandsundry.com

“fantastically executed … a comprehensive, definitive, one-stop shop for the world of Judge Dredd” – BoardGameGeek

“far exceeded my expectations and I believe it is the best Judge Dredd RPG that has ever been produced” – Vampifan’s WOIN Blog

Whether you want to step into a sci-fi Western and hunt down criminals on distant worlds, or stalk the poisoned battlefields of Nu-Earth, two new rulebooks for an acclaimed tabletop roleplaying series allow you to dive even further into the galaxy of 2000 AD’s greatest series!

Following on from the success of the Judge Dredd & Worlds of 2000 AD tabletop roleplaying game, game publisher EN Publishing has announced new expansions that introduce the worlds of Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper.

The new expansion hardcover books, available from EN Publishing, introduce you to the worlds of Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper, providing you with in-depth information on new settings, characters, and rules for these popular science fiction worlds so that you can create your own adventures!

Both expansion hardcover books require the Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD core rulebook, which is also available from EN Publishing.

In Strontium Dog, Johnny Alpha and the bounty hunters of the Search/Destroy agency hunt their targets relentlessly across the galactic frontier. Human society despises but relies upon these mutant ‘Strontium Dog’ mercenaries to root out the galaxy’s deadliest criminals. So step into the Doghouse, polish your S/D badge, and take your place alongside famous agents such as Johnny Alpha, Wulf Sternhammer, and Durham Red to await your next contract.

Set in the same universe as Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog jumps ahead to the year 2180 and offers the entire galaxy as a playground. With new careers for S/D agents, unique equipment like the variable-cartridge blaster, time bomb and time drogue, a gazetteer of the galaxy and guide to creating new and exciting locations, sample contracts and adventure seeds, plus a whole host of adversaries and allies, this supplement provides an entirely new way to explore the Judge Dredd & the Worlds of 2000 AD roleplaying game.

In the Rogue Trooper universe, the Norts and the Southers wage an endless war for control of the poisoned planet Nu-Earth. The Southers develop superhuman soldiers known as Genetic Infantrymen, or GIs, in the hopes of stalling the Norts’ advance. Whether as an enlisted human or GI clone, it’s time to join the Souther defence against the relentless assault of the Norts. Welcome to Nu-Earth – do not leave home without your chemsuit!

Rogue Trooper offers several new species such as the Genetic Infantryman and Srigoi, a raft of new careers that define a character’s military service on either side of the conflict, new equipment and vehicles designed to keep the characters safes during their mission, a full gazetteer of Nu-Earth, plus tips and trick to running games of Rogue Trooper in other settings with different themes. Set against the backdrop of the unending war for control of Nu-Earth, this supplement provides a completely new experience for the Judge Dredd & the World of 2000 AD roleplaying game.

The first game from the new offshoot will be Sniper Elite the Board Game, based on the studio’s bestselling tactical shooter series.

Headed up by Duncan Molloy, previously the Founder and Creative Lead of the board game line at Osprey Games, Rebellion Unplugged will release new physical games and collectables based on the company’s diverse and extensive collection of properties. Several games are already in the works.

Rebellion operates across games, TV, books, comics and film. Among many others, its library of IPs includes the beloved sci-fi universes of 2000 AD, the upcoming spy-fi lair-builder Evil Genius 2, and the multi-million selling Zombie Army series – the next instalment of which, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 4th.

An early version of Sniper Elite the Board Game will be playable at PAX Unplugged this December. More details will be unveiled before it launches on Kickstarter early next year, and more games are due to be unveiled throughout 2020.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be launching Rebellion Unplugged,” said Rebellion CEO and founder Jason Kingsley OBE. “My brother Chris and I have been making video games for more than 25 years, and our love of the medium has its roots in our childhood love of board games.
