Steamforged Games has a couple new releases available over in their webshop. There’s a pair of new Guild Ball players. There’s also a new Card Game, Shadow Games. Plus, if you want, it’s the last day to join in the Dark Souls Late Pledge.
Starting out with the two Guild Ball players, we’ve got the Veteran versions of Velocity and Siren. Along with new players, Season II also brought us the first batch of players that have had some real experience on the Guild Ball pitch. Sure, some of the previous characters (Mallet, Greyscales) have had that as part of their story, but these are the first of the new versions of old characters. They often have similar stats and abilities to what you remember, but with new twists, or a slightly different direction that reflects what’s gone on in the fluff.
As for the new card game, that’s Shadow Games. It takes place in the same universe as Guild Ball, but the action isn’t on the pitch. In the game, you are the head of a guild, looking to get any advantage you can for your team. Mostly, that comes in the form of new talent. There’s a new star player in town, and every guild wants them. You’ve gotta do everything you can to make sure he’s on your roster at the start of the season.
Finally, as I mentioned, the last day for Late Pledges for Dark Souls is today! I got to try out the demo they had at Gen Con, and I have to say, this isn’t one you’ll want to pass you by.
