  2. I'm hosting an event in the Chicagoland area with a modified OPD and room for proxies of models with full rules! If you're in the Midwest, come on down/up/around and PLAY! WHEN: October 14th, 2017. 10:30 Registration, 11:00 AM tournament begins! WHERE: Grognard Games and Hobbies 839 Roselle Road, Roselle, IL 60172 HOW MUCH: 10 of your American Dollars, paid day-of. SOCIAL MEDIA: FACEBOOK LINK DETAILS: This event will be a test of the Longshanks.org event-running system, completing Longshanks' hostile takeover of the digital side of Guild Ball! It will also use a modified Organized Play Document. All rules and functions of the document will be followed, except the initiative roll at the start of the game for kicker/receiver will be BEFORE THE REVEAL OF CAPTAIN AND MASCOT. All other parts of the game will run the same. In addition, proxies of models will be allowed! Your proxies will only be legal if they fulfill the following criteria: The model's entire rules card has been completely publicly revealed by Steamforged Games You have a printed copy of the model's full card available at all times during each game The proxy has a plastic base that exactly matches the size listed on the model's card The proxy is not identical to another model made by Steamforged Games for Guild Ball The proxy is clearly labeled with the full name of the proxied model at least once If any of these requirements are not fulfilled, that proxy will not be legal for use. For clarity's sake, the following unreleased or partially released models are legal, barring the above criteria: Lucky, Thresher, Buckwheat, Tater, Millstone, Ploughman, Anvil, Sledge, Furnace, Cinder, Ferrite, Iron, Hearth, and Alloy. This list will be updated in the case of models being fully spoiled between now and the event. Prizes will be awarded for First, Second, and Third Place, as well as Best Painted and Best Goal. There will also be door prizes. Come play!
  3. Greetings forum dwellers! Episode 7 of Run The Length is up! This time I play against Zachary Gray's Hunters. Zach is on the USA's WTC Team and was nice enough to play his off guild for me. Due to very fortunate timing the game uses the new OPD. Let me know your thoughts on the game by commenting here or on the video. Hit the like button it helps others find the series and share this with your buddies. Thanks for watching!

  6. Hi all! Jumped aboard the Guild Ball train after some excellent demos at AdeptiCon. A few of my friends also jumped on board and we've already started evangelizing the game. Can't wait to get to the pitch!
  7. Just stopping by and saying hello. I look forward to being a part of the post-Kickstarter tests. I haven't settled on a favorite Guild yet but the game looks great. I'll see you all on the pitch
