  2. CaptainCon 2018

    It's a little ways off, but saw that tickets are selling for next year's CaptainCon and event listings are starting to show up. Very curious to see what Guild Ball will be like there this year since it doesn't line up with LVO this time. Any chance that Steamforged will be supporting events there this year?
  3. CaptainCon

    CaptainCon weekend long game convention Guild Ball events will be running all weekend Providence, RI, USA For more details see captaincon.com
  4. Minimum Age?

    Last week my seven y/o was asking to play, so I started teaching him the game. Reading comprehension on plays and traits seems like the biggest challenge, but will vary broadly by child, and less of an issue by 10. My take is just to take it like any demo for some one who hasn't played a mini game in general. You explain the concepts as you go, and walk them through the first game pretty closely. If they have an existing interest in board or video games, it should go even easier.
  5. PAX Unplugged vs SteamCon UK

    During the day Saturday there will be a local pundit run tournament. Sized for 32, and hopefully we fill it. There will be open Guild Ball gaming all weekend, and well into the night. Open tables will be open until midnight on Saturday.

  7. PAX Unplugged vs SteamCon UK

    Don't know what there wold be in the way of news at PAX, would expect Steamcon to be home for that sort of thing.

  9. Much like the potential for a knockdown, I'd say this all gets resolved right at the edge of melee. Exit the melee, resolve the attack, place Hearne (assuming that is allowed) then continue moving if desired.
  10. In this case the reposition doesn't trigger until the end of Jaecar's activation. At that point the Parting Blow is well since resolved. Swift Strikes happens at the point of the attack. Thinking the activation trigger makes them distinct in this case.

  13. Tooled Up and Pin Vice

    Tooled-up doesn't specify anything preventing it from affecting friendly targets, and Pin Vices abilities look to cause damage as normal with other character plays. Pretty sure that means, yes, she'd cause extra damage to the targeted models.
  14. Captain Con 2017

    Definitely worth the trip up if you can make it. With 5 different tournaments over the weekend, certainly room to play. And if you're not in an event there will be open games pretty much all the time, plus a few special scenario tables this year.
  15. CaptainCon Guildball

    There is a version listed in the US events forum, but it's been there for a while as it was posted early in the planning process. This, I think, exists more because this is a larger scale convention beyond just a single event and officially supported. It hoped to raise awareness that the Con is coming soon, and get people talking about it. The multi-day convention events tend to pop up in multiple places. As far as US Nationals, the convention is not a qualifier at this point, though our lead pundit is looking into that possibility now that the qualifier information is out there.
  16. The difference in wording with 'when' and 'after' has been throwing me on this one. The Magnum Opus wording sounds simultaneous with the score, but Run the Length sounds like it would have to fall in between goal resolution and the kick. I guess those could also just both be things that happen as a result of a goal though.
