    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

    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: August 2018] There's a lot of background material available about the Guild Ball world. Here's a guide to where to find Sherwin's stories. 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. As of July 2018, nearly all the material is available online free, but you need to buy a Season 3 rulebook (the current rulebook, though Season 4 is on the way later this year) to see those stories. ..................................................... Season 1, Season 2 and Union in Chains are available to download here: http://steamforged.com/resources/ The above, plus the Butchers Civil War story, is here: http://guild-ball.wikia.com/wiki/Guild_Ball_Wikia The Guild Ball Wikia website is more complete, because it contains the individual player pages with stories on, which are not included in the main Steamforged resource site. The Wikia website also includes 12 parts for Union in Chains, whereas there are ten on the Steamforged resource site. ..................................................... 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 .....................................................
