  5. Farmers Release Event

    This will be a non-competitive, casual, 3-round game event to celebrate the release of the Farmers team. Each coach will bring a 6-player team (1 captain, 1 mascot, 4 players) to use for the day. Specific "Farmers Event" rules will be in play for all Guilds. All players will receive a limited edition captain card and a limited edition harvest marker. Additionally, a limited edition Tater model and Cabbage ball will be awarded. https://www.facebook.com/events/114623949194312/
  6. Had a question arise that I promised I'd check on. In this case, we had 2 interpretations of how the Push/Dodge get's applied from the frost token granted by Winters Night (Skatha's legendary). Interpretation #1 - Spending the token adds >< to all Playbook results. Interpretation #2 - Spending the token adds a separate additional result of >< to a play. If it's interpretation #1, the >< can be added multiple times with a wrap. If #2 it cannot. Which is correct? ** as a note, this would also be the interpretation for Avarisse & Greede's "Many Hands" trait, correct?
  7. Onto the evening and day 2. God Bless a restaurant willing to take in 40 gamers on a Saturday evening! Then fewer pictures of day 2, but a couple made it through: Here's the deciding game of round 5, Table 2 - the play down/up. Vince (4/0) vs Dutch (3/1) And the round 5 top table, Pat vs Frank Then the final round, Vince vs Frank And the podium: Sometimes it's cool to have the internet come to life at events. Here's a picture I couldn't pass up of the Alex Botts playing the Jared McGraw.
  8. Here's the first set of pictures from the Spring Fling. These are from Day 1, The Evening and Day 2 are coming. The Calm before the start: Of course, an event that I'm running has Duck Donuts: Table 1 - Mat's by Mar's championship mat plus Broken Egg 2d terrain Table 2 - Mat and terrain by Hidden Forest Gaming Then the crowd shows up and round 1 gets started: Here are some candid pictures from games through the day: More candids from day 1:
  9. Email sent to attendees with the final rules packet. We're in the final stretch for the spring fling. To date we have 46 registered players, making for an exciting day!
  10. Wishing I had time today to read the new OPD. Will update as soon as I can once I read it... or maybe write my own. Bill
  11. That should not be a problem at all, although I would urge anyone who can to stay both days. Day 2 will have the final games plus all the prizes and awards. Coming for just the single day is a fantastic way to get a fair number of games in a single day though!!! I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
  12. @TehMik sorry for the delay in posting, but I gotcha in the system. We've topped 40 registered players but I'm aware of at least 1 person who has a conflict and won't be attending. This means that not only is there still plenty of room (we have room for 64) but we also have at least 1 full swag bag outstanding. Pre-Registration is very helpful, in the final 4 weeks I'm nailing down lunch and the amount of morning donuts. Emails will be going out to everyone registered shortly.
  13. Is Harry the "Hat" doing too much?

    So, taking this at face value: Alchemists with Vitriol, so let's ask if Vitriol is over powered and recommend changes for her? Brewers with Spigot ......? Butchers with vBrisket .....? Morticians with Cosset ......? Masons with Mallet ......? Engineers with Hoist ...? Fish seem to be the only team without a single player that goes in every line-up, but then again they have nearly identical line-ups for each of their captains (Shark, Greyscales, Siren, Sakana or Corsair, vSiren, Greyscales,) My point being there are models across the board that you'll "always see". I'm not sure why a single union member being picked is such a bad thing. I think there's more use in looking to the "Where'd they go" thread is people want to be constructive in recommending fixes. There's a whole lot of models not seen at all anymore.
  14. Is Harry the "Hat" doing too much?

    Re: Fish and Alch rankings.... it's good to point out that the "official" Steamforged events in the US (LVO and all of Adepticon) aren't in the ranking since the data's not accessible. I suspect the win%'s would be even higher with the 3 Adepticon events added in. on Harry, why is it bad to see the same model chosen when there's only 1 union slot available for most teams? I'm not sure that really means he's OP as much as brings something unique and useful to those teams who can take him. This is the same as A&G bringing a unique and useful ability in earlier seasons. or is unique and useful now labeled as OP? and damn, after riding the bench and being ridiculed as the worst model in the game for 2 seasons, why does everyone resent him seeing some field time now?
  15. Got some new information incoming. One of the ideas being embraced at the Spring Fling 2017 is a side event for Significant Others. Often we, as gamers, find ourselves being pressured to not attend events because our Significant others do not play. The answer is the Spring Fling Spa day. Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/166584990515230/ While the gamers are playing Guild Ball, the SO's will be off at a spa then lunch with the group. Here's some details. Spa - Bella Beach Nail Spa, Ashburn VA Lunch - MOD Pizza Classic Package: $60 includes: classic manicure, classic pedicure, either (Mod pizza or Mod Salad) and Drink. Gel Package: $90 includes: Classic pedicure, Gel manicure, either (Mod pizza or Mod Salad) and Drink. Rides will be coordinated among the group who are going. If you're SO is interested, make sure you're signed up to attend the Spring Fling and have your SO indicate they'll be "going" on the Facebook event (link above).
