First, this will be a 'small' kickstarter - running for two and a half weeks - ending on August 7th.
They plan on new editions of both the base game and Ultimate, and right now the talk is about four new teams.

They are changing the model for the ball - making it slightly bigger, and adding a spike that fits into the new clear bases - so making it easier to keep track of who actually had the ball.

Of the new team ideas - I like the cyborg undead. Essentially recycled players who have been killed - so they come from all races. They are tied together by the eyepieces and heart plugs.

Another idea is 'sumo' lizards.

Finally a Yindij team. Apparently some people are very excited about them (and it looks like they and the sports robots will be in the box set, but I'm not real excited about them (yet).
Mantic has also released the concept for a new exclusive coach

Mantic has announced a $100 sweet spot for the kickstarter - I expect them to have a lower level as well that is an 'upgrade' kit (dice, cards, book).
Because it is all fun and games . . .
