    The Old Buzzard


    I have won a game because of 'the offside trap' card. Not a famously powerful card. My Fisherman opponent needed more time to get his second goal because of this and I was able to take the ball off him. And then when Furnace has popped his legendary, had one favourable crowd out and was in cover, Shark could not take the ball back off him. Shark was taken out then I scored.

    Best value single box team

    EDIT: The list was created with S3 rules in mind. And somehow I forgot to include The Union in it back then... You could pick almost anything and have a good time. Pick the guilds you or your friends might be interested in and guilds with various playstyles. Outside of the Masons and Brewers, I would rank boxed teams as follows. Note: Minor guilds aren't in this list because they're designed to work as a box. Good boxes THE ENGINEER'S GUILD: THE INSTRUMENTS OF WAR THE ALCHEMIST'S GUILD: THE LURE OF GOLD THE FARMER'S GUILD: THE HONEST LAND THE BLACKSMITH'S GUILD: FORGED FROM STEEL THE BUTCHER'S GUILD: THE BLOODY MASTER THE FISHERMAN'S GUILD: THE CHANGING TIDE THE FISHERMAN'S GUILD: PIRATE'S RETURN Maybe boxes THE ENGINEER'S GUILD: PRECISION MADE - Somewhat weird team, but proxy vVelocity -> oVelocity and it's ok THE BLACKSMITH'S GUILD: MASTER CRAFTED ARSENAL - The other one works better alone I think. If you're interested in these particular players, then go for it. THE BUTCHER'S GUILD: THE SCARLET CIRCLE - Tenderizer is a bit off, it is used as a counterpick. The other Butcher box works ok. THE HUNTER'S GUILD: BLESSED OF THE SUN FATHER - Good box, but it's tricky to play. Again, if you really like the Hunters, go for it. THE MORTICIAN'S GUILD: THE MASTER OF PUPPETS (RESIN) - Same as Hunters: Good box, but it's tricky to play. If you really like the Spooks, go for it. Don't Touch boxes THE ALCHEMIST'S GUILD: THE NEW AGE OF SCIENCE - This is just unsynergistic alone and lacks relevant models from the other box THE FARMER'S GUILD: OLD FATHER'S HARVEST - 4 Reapers & 2 Planters is not gonna work smoothly IDK boxes THE HUNTER'S GUILD: HERALDS OF THE WINTER'S MOON - Personally, I wouldn't play these. I have hard time fitting any of them into team right now (wait for season 4) THE MORTICIAN'S GUILD: STRINGS OF THE SPIRIT WEAVER - The box has 3 of the least played Spooks and the rest are really tricky to play. I wouldn't touch this as a team, but ofc it's a great addition to the Spooks overall.

    TBH, I don't like them at all. They do bring some strategizing to the game, but to me this is mainly a distraction. It slows down the game, I much prefer a dice roll and moving on. The extra tactical aspect, to me, brings no extra fun to the game. Grumpy man, yes.

    Where to find the Guild Ball background

    [UPDATED: Oct 2018] There's a lot of background material available about the Guild Ball world. The main site is: https://hub.guild-ball.com/the-setting You can find here the stories from the Season 1-3 rulebooks and the two community events that took place in 2016 and 2017 (Civil War and Union in Chains) as well as the Theron origins story. There have been more stories posted mainly on the Steamforged blog. Links are given below. If you want to read them in order of publication: Season 1, Season 2, Butchers Civil War, Young Theron, Season 3, Lucky, Union in Chains, Ratcatchers, Veteran Salt, Navigators, Harry the Hat, Blacksmiths, Cooks, Free Cities Draft. ..................................................... It's also worth looking at this unofficial site: http://guild-ball.wikia.com/wiki/Guild_Ball_Wikia The Guild Ball Wikia website has some extra material, as it includes the story texts from the individual character profile pages of the season 1 and 2 rulebooks, which aren't in the files on the hub. ..................................................... Young Theron's story (which is a flashback) is here: http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/theron-origins-part-i http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/theron-origins-reveille http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/theron-origins-athena http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/theron-origins-under-the-light-of-the-moon http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/guild-ball-theron-origins-the-last-post .....................................................
