The cult-favorite ’80s Judge Dredd board game Block Mania is back, just in time for the holidays.
Rebellion Unplugged has announced a limited edition re-issue of the 1987 two-player game set in Mega-City. In the game, each player controls the citizens of an entire Mega-City block as they attempt to destroy the block next door before the Judges arrive.
« Relive the chaos of hives soaring in bat-suits; hungry alien Kleggs commandeering Sky-Rail cars; and City-Def forces infiltrating the neighboring block to blow it to smithereens before the Judges unleash the riot foam to shut you down! » reads Rebellion Unplugged’s description.
Originally designed by Space Hulk’s Richard Halliwell for Games Workshop in 1987, this is the first time it’s been re-released in over two decades.
Each Block Mania box will include:
- Two different, full-color game boards – each depicting an entire Mega-City Block
- 180 counters representing citizens, weapons, equipment, damage markers, collapse markers, and fire markers
- A deck of 54 full-color, double-sided playing cards used to play dirty tricks against your rival in the game.
- A comprehensive rule book and Blockers’ Manual
- Two six-sided dice
This 2020 re-issue will also include the Mega-Mania expansion set and Happy Hour expansion, which adds two additional boards and additional counters so up to four people can play.
This Block Mania re-issue will be on sale beginning Friday, November 27 at 7am EST at 2000AD.com.
