The article, itself, already uses “Home is where the Hearth is,” so I can’t really do that one again. So, I’ll go with “Happy Hearth’s-Warming, everyone!” A few of you might get that, anyway. But enough on puns of this player’s name, Steamforged is show...

Steamforged Games has been looking to make entry into Guild Ball easier for new players. They’ve created starter boxes for all of their factions. But what if someone has looked online, seen the stat cards, and kinda wanted the other captain and mascot for the team? Well, there’s help now ...

Guild Identity cards give coaches in Guild Ball a new way to customize their team. Each Guild is starting out with 3 different Identities they can choose from, each one giving you a universal ability, from getting you more kicking distance to offering new ways to get VPs and just about anything in-be...

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. That includes particular training regimens that are designed to specifically beat what the other team usually brings to the match. Until now, Guild Ball has lacked such a details. But Steamforged is looking to cha...

Once more it’s early in the A.M. and I’m up. That’s just my schedule. But I’ve got another batch of galleries to show off from Day 2 of Gen Con. Remember, the best way to see these immediately is to follow us over on our Facebook page. Anyway, let’s get to it!...

Nothing is perfect. And the more complex something is, the more chances that something not being quite right getting through. Well, miniatures games can be pretty complex, and sometimes things need to be fixed. Guild Ball has a lot of interactions that go on, and some of them have been deemed a bit t...

Well, like Corvus Belli earlier today, Steamforged is showing off their upcoming releases for Gen Con. Also, like Corvus Belli, there’s Chibis involved. And… ok, I’m not too proud to say it, but I actually went, “Squeee!” when I saw that there’s going to be a Chibi...

Always two there are, master and apprentice. Where you find one, you will find the other. Recently, we got a preview of Furnace. He was the master. So, now we get a look at the apprentice. Her name’s Cinder. She can, literally, blow up the ball and have another one kicked out onto the pitch. [&...

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...

The Blacksmith’s Guild is an interesting group, to say the least. Steamforged is slowly showing off this new Guild Ball team, teasing us along as they go. This time around, we get a look at team building. Here’s a place where the Blacksmiths break a couple rules. 1st: no mascot. 2nd: no c...

My dad’s side of the family is from South Dakota. Many of them are farmers. It’s not easy work. Me, as a city boy, would go and visit and spend a week or so helping out around the farm. It was fun, but man, it would definitely kick my ass. It’s easy to see how […]...

Well, Steamforged shows off most of Anvil, anyway. We got a little preview back when they first announced the Blacksmith’s Guild, but now we’re getting a little more. They’re showing off the rest of the front of Anvil’s card, along with the majority of the back of it....

It’s New Release Day over at Steamforged Games. The next couple of releases are available for Guild Ball. I just got a game in of that last night. 12-0 Win for the Hunters against the Union. Though things might’ve been different if these two new Union members had been on the pitch. Grace ...

Steamforged is looking to repackage some of their old kits in order to do a couple things: make it easier for a player to know what they need to field a basic team and make it easier for stores, since they won’t have as many SKUs on the shelf and in their catalog (note: those […]...

Well, I’m ridiculously excited. One of my primary teams for Guild Ball is getting a pretty hefty expansion coming out next week. The The Heralds of the Winter’s Moon set comes with a new captain, new mascot, their first veteran player, and a new “regular” player with which to augmen...

The Hunter’s Guild is getting a 4-player expansion later this month. The team, that was new in Season II, is getting themselves a new captain, mascot, their first Veteran player, and a new player. I know I’m excited. We get ourselves a bit of preview. It’s not full stats, but a good...

Salute is coming up soon. It’s an all-out, one day extravaganza. Think of a really huge gaming convention, and then cram all of it into a span of just a single day. That’s Salute. And, obviously, such a big deal means that companies at the show have big deals of their own. Steamforged Gam...

When the Hunter’s Guild came out in Season 2 for Guild Ball, their box set contained a full team. You had your captain, mascot, and four players all in one place. Previous boxes just came with a captain and two players. Well, going forward, Steamforged is looking to make all their guilds have f...

Guild Ball is getting a trio of new players hitting the pitch today. You’ve got a giant robot, a girl with alchemical gas-jets attached to her wrists, and an old sea hag. Just goes to show that the various Guilds are rather inclusive. If you’re able to help out on the pitch, there’s...

Yes, they already make a joke about “seasoned brisket” in their post. So I don’t really need to make another one here. Suffice to say that, having left the Butcher’s Guild, it might seem as though Brisket was going to be out of Guild Ball. That’s definitely not the case,...

Most of the members of the Union that we’ve seen for Guild Ball have been the lowest dregs of society. Thieves, murderers, liars, deranged psychopaths (ok, that maybe covers a lot of Guild Ball players, but still…). These two new players are quite different. Grace and Benediction bring a ...

We’re only a couple days from having the next wave of Guild Ball releases available. One of them is Veteran Ox for the Butcher’s Guild. He used to be the captain for the team. But if the fluff for Guild Ball is like anything, it’s like Game of Thrones. Characters die, get thrown in ...

Season 3 of Guild Ball somewhat-started when we got the stat cards right after Steamcon. But I know a lot of people (myself included) have been really wanting to get the actual Season 3 stat cards. I mean, sure, the print-outs work, but just like getting the official token packs, there’s just s...
