November 2017 Newsletter: Craft Your Path to Glory

Under hammer and shield, the Blacksmith’s Guild rise. Cast the die and pave your way to glory, but mind you don’t forget your surroundings. From forge to pitch, coming November 17th. 

The Blacksmith’s Guild: Forged from Steel
The Fishermen's Guild: The Changing Tides
The Blacksmith’s Guild: Forged From Steel

All Blacksmiths are traditional and honourable, but look no further than Anvil to see their pride – the true rock, the immovable object that cannot be broken.

— Tapper, Brewer’s Guild
As resilient as the steel he crafts, Anvil stands steadfast as a Master Blacksmith. A veteran of his craft, Anvil’s wisdom is as valuable as the protection his shield provides. Towering over the pitch, Anvil is ready to assume an unrelenting guard and knockdown the opposition for his allies.

Anvil is the armour of his team: absorbing hits and deflecting danger way from his team. He holds his ground and provides a safeguard so that his allies can secure victory. His ability to enable the raw potential of the Blacksmiths, his apprentice Sledge especially, is invaluable.

Bolstered by their Master, his team can perform incredible displays of skill and carnage. Stalwart coaches looking for a Guild that plays like shield and sword will enjoy the mighty Blacksmiths.


Contents: 6 player cards, ball, goal token, 3D terrain piece, tokens, health dial, and 6 players: Anvil, Furnace, Ferrite, Sledge, Iron, Cinder
ARE YOU READY TO FORGE YOUR LEGEND?
  • Coaches looking to play a measured, and resilient team will enjoy the Blacksmiths.
  • Anvil is the immovable object at the centre of his team, shielding nearby Apprentices from harm while they annihilate enemy players that get too close.
  • Whether the coach is new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this resilient, destructive team.
Blacksmith’s Guild Dice
Blacksmith’s Guild Dice

“Strike while the irons hot! Measure twice and cut once, no mistakes.”

— Anvil, Blacksmith’s Guild
If you want to keep your focus on the pitch then you’re going to need a decent set of dice to roll, and from the flames of the furnace the Blacksmith’s Guild have duly obliged. Crucial for those decisive moments, the sight of a faction emblem heralds another step on the road to victory. With 10 sturdy, dark grey marbled dice you’ll never need to stop the action. These dice are truly befitting of a master blacksmith.

Contents: 10x Blacksmith’s Guild Dice

ROLL YOUR WAY TO VICTORY
  • A perfect addition to any Blacksmith’s team, and vital for completing your collection
  • Make your opponents tremble with calculated dice rolls and forge your path to victory
  • Perfect for veteran players and new players alike, these dice are a great add on to any roster
Mason’s & Brewers Terrain Pack
Mason’s & Brewer’s Terrain Pack
Sometimes a wall can be your best friend out there and keep you safe from a monster like Boar. Sometimes that patch of fast ground there will be the difference between scoring and getting taken out. Take to the field knowing the terrain, and you’ve already won the game.                                                                                                         — Honour, Mason’s Guild
Containing a wealth of terrains that can be found in the world of Guild Ball, as well as unique Mason and Brewer terrains, this set will take your game to a new level. Whether you use these pieces at events or in casual games, coaches old and new will find this a fantastic set to add to their collection.

An interesting upcoming Kickstarter from Steamforged Games…

Steamforged Games – “Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game”
Steamforged Games is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Capcom to bring the iconic Resident Evil™ 2 video game to the board gamers of the world.  Building on the success of previous titles including “Guild Ball” and “Dark Souls: The Board Game”, Steamforged Games will be launching this latest game, “Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game” via Kickstarter in late Autumn 2017.

Steamforged is proud of its proven capability to bring video game IP to life as board games and plans to fully realise the core game experience of the much loved Resident Evil 2 world. “It’s a privilege and an honour to be trusted to bring such an important video game to life as a board game,” said Mat Hart, Creative Director and Co-founder of Steamforged Games. “Resident Evil 2 helped to define its own genre of games and has created a lasting legacy in video game history. Steamforged has several Resident Evil super fans on the team and so we have a deep understanding of what makes RE such a compelling game experience; one that still has legions of fans around the world still playing the game nearly two decades after its release. We’re determined to surprise and delight players new and old with this board game realisation, even the most hardcore of fans!”

Steamforged Games previously broke a number of Kickstarter records with their last game “Dark Souls™: The Board Game” including the highest funded board game ever launched on the KS platform. Steamforged takes immense pride in taking amazing game worlds and lovingly crafting them into high quality board and card games…we specialise in understanding what makes each video game so compelling and then unlocking that experience in the physical game space.

Follow Steamforged Games on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or subscribe to our newsfeed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/SfgNewsBlog-SteamforgedGames) for all the latest news on this exciting project.

Capcom’s Marketing Director Antoine Molant commented “With the Resident Evil brand being one of Capcom’s most successful IP’s of all time we’re delighted to share our support for this exciting new release and are looking forward to seeing the end product from Steamforged Games”

Some new lineups for Guild Ball from Steamforged Games…

September 2017 Newsletter: Fresh Lineups, Fierce Tactics

Make sure to only Sing When You’re Winning during the Punishing March, or Precision Made death will come and you’ll be paying your Bloody Coin to the ferryman. These electrifying line ups are bringing fearsome tactics to the pitch this coming October.

The Mason’s Guild: The Punishing March
The Mason’s Guild: The Punishing March
“Hammer is legendary in everything he does. While others may falter, he only gets better – stronger, faster. He is an inspiration, like an ancient titan of legend.”
— Harmony, Mason’s Guild

An unrelenting juggernaut on the field, Hammer is the anchor at the centre of the Mason’s Guild. A true icon, one of the strongest players in the game today – and, he’s stamping his name into the world of Guild Ball at any cost.

Immovable in their resolve, Hammer’s team can attack and defend with equal ferocity – crushing the opposition with Hammer and Chisel while scoring goals through sheer force of will. Coaches will delight in blunting their opponent’s attacks against a Granite Tower before Wrecking them with perfect Harmony.

Unrelenting in their pursuit of glory, this set includes: 6 player cards, ball, bases, and 6 players: Hammer, Wrecker, Chisel, Veteran Harmony, Tower, Granite.
 

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD THESE STONE COLD BUILDERS? 

  • Coaches looking to play a versatile team will enjoy the Masons
  • Hammer is a no-nonsense powerhouse that pushes himself and his team to perfection
  • Whether the coach is new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this tactical, synergistic team.
The Brewer’s Guild: Sing When You’re Winning
Brewer’s Guild: Sing When You’re Winning

“Hear them? They sing like that for us. For their heroes. Time to go out there and make each and every one of them proud. Proud, like you are of your teammates, and the kutte you wear.”

— Esters, Brewer’s Guild
Fierce but kind, the Brewers matriarch is driven by a powerful need to  protect those under her care.  On the pitch, Esters is an avatar of inspiration, driving her  teammates to astonishing feats of bravery as they shrug off injuries that would bring another player low.

More unorthodox than other Brewers, this team excels at taking their opponents by surprise with players showing unexpected bursts of speed, or suddenly attacking wildly and recklessly. Empowered by the ballads of their captain, this team is one to be feared. Coaches will relish their unique flexibility

Voices raised in deafening chorus, this set includes: 6 player cards, ball, bases, and 6 players: Esters, Quaff, Mash, Veteran Spigot, Stoker, PintPot.

WILL YOU MAKE YOUR ENEMIES PUNCH DRUNK WITH THESE BREWERS?

  • Coaches looking to play a team that can take a lot of damage, as well as control the pitch will enjoy the Brewers
  • Esters adds an edge of unpredictability to the bluntness of the Brewers with unexpected bursts of speed, high damage output, and strong defence.
  • Whether the coach is new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this tough, brutal team.
The Union: The Bloody Coin
The Union: The Bloody Coin
“Aye, I was there that dark day, when Rage drew his line in the dirt. And one by one, they followed him, as the mean, gore covered bastard stared at them and offered them each a bloody coin. That’s when it all changed. When Rage became the Usurper.”
— Shank, Butcher’s Guild
A fractured mind governed by a lust for destruction, Rage rules his team through fear and a blood soaked clever. Having usurped the Union throne from the Pirate King, he has forever changed the world of Guild Ball and begun a chain of events that will end in bloodshed and destruction.

Mercenaries to their core, those who take to the pitch with Rage act more like a vicious gang than a professional Guild Ball team. These players are willing to do whatever’s necessary to win: poisoning, bleeding, or bludgeoning their way to victory. Aggressive and ferocious, coaches will love beating the opposition into submission with this team.

In the shadow of the Usurper, this set includes: 6 player cards, ball, bases, and 6 players: Veteran Rage, Strongbox, Snakeskin, Fangtooth, Minx, Hemlocke

CAN YOU UNIFY THIS MERCENARY GANG?

  • Coaches looking to play a team of ragtag mercenaries will enjoy the Union
  • Veteran Rage is destruction incarnate, he leads his team like an angry mob that consumes and destroys all in its path
  • Whether the coach is new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this aggressive, high damage team.

The Engineer’s Guild: Precision Made
The Engineer’s Guild: Precision Made
 
“Pin Vice will never stop, not until they have transformed the world. I have seen their ruthlessness in the promise of a bleak future, where the honest beat in the heart of man is replaced by the cold, metallic clicking of clockwork.”
— Ballista, Engineer’s Guild

Known as the Artificer Queen to members of the Engineers Guild, Pin Vice is calculating and efficient, having long since moved beyond the limits of humanity in search of mechanical perfection by stripping their flesh until only a perfect machine remains.

Pin Vice leads their team not as their captain, but as their master. Their team reacts and plays exactly how they command, mechanical limbs obliterating any who would seek to contain their precision. Coaches will relish total domination of Pin Vice’s team, punishing their opponents with a succession of goals.

Mechanically precise, this set includes: 6 player cards, ball, bases, and 6 players: Pin Vice, Mother (and three nest markers), Veteran Velocity, Hoist, Compound, Locus.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD THIS MECHANICAL MASTERPIECE?

  • Coaches looking to play an aggressive goal scoring game with clockwork precision will enjoy the Engineers
  • Pin Vice is an adept goal scorer, pushing the rest of the mechanical team to their breaking points to keep up with her fast-paced tactics.
  • Whether the coach is new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this efficient team.

Steamforged Games September newsletter…featuring some new Guild Ball rosters…

September 2017 Newsletter: New Friends, New Rosters

A new Age of Science is upon us: called forth by the return of a Pirate King who’s slipped the Strings of the Spirit Weaver to emerge from the Scarlet Circle. Exploding onto the pitch September 15th. 

The Butcher’s Guild: The Scarlet Circle
The Fishermen's Guild: The Changing Tides
The Butcher’s Guild: The Scarlet Circle
“I remember once we celebrated to see the Master Butcher dethroned, and absent from the pitch. How wrong we were. What came next was even worse.”
— Obulus, Mortician’s Guild
Inheritor of the Master Butcher’s throne, Fillet is one of the deadliest individuals in the Empire. Unmatched in combat, she delights in playing with her opponents – slashing and bleeding them dry.

Like any Butcher’s team, Fillet’s side will punish their opponents mercilessly, toying with them before landing the final blow. All the while beating the opponents players into the ground until the perfect opportunity to score arises.

The bloody dance of death, this set includes: a ball, 6 player cards, bases, and 6 players: Fillet, Truffles, Meathook, Veteran Brisket, Tenderiser, Veteran Ox.
