Still rather new to the Guild Ball pitch, the Farmer’s Guild has an interesting dynamic of planters and reapers on their team. Planters set out harvest tokens that can later be used by the reapers for some sort of bonus. There’s a lot that goes into building a Farmer’s team, looking...

Before a game, professional teams will do a lot to prepare for their upcoming opponent.

I love Moana. I think that movie is awesome. Didn’t see it in the theaters, but did watch it a bunch of times when it came out on Netflix. So I’m totally in a groove with Polynesian culture and such. So I’m pretty interested in these new Toa Orcs that Punga Miniatures is creating....

Goblins are pretty prolific. They seem to end up all over everywhere. As such, they can end up being mutated by magic, or environmental factors, or just genetics gone awry. The NurGoblins certainly aren’t your garden-variety greenskin. They’ve been twisted and made evil (well, evil-er), a...

The Blacksmith’s Guild is looking to reshape the world of Guild Ball like a smith reshapes metal. Their Master/Apprentice dynamic gives you a team with no mascot and no official captain (you pick who is in charge at the start of the game). So there’s a lot of anticipation on what these pl...
