Guild Ball is the game of medieval fantasy football from Steamforged Games. The Century War has wracked the land, and all that forges the fractious nations of the new Empire together is the blood-sport of Guild Ball, brought together by the scheming Guilds. Will you play the slippery Fishermen, the arcane Alchemists, or the suspicious Union? Read some articles, listen to some podcasts, watch some videos, and maybe you’ll find out which is best for you!

Smogcon: Bringing the American game convention to London

Posted by on 8:59 am

Hi guys! Me along with my two buddies Jon Webb and Tom Hutchings here in London are putting on Smogcon next February. Here in Europe, the 3-day American style of convention is very rare. Our vision is to bring that kind of gaming experience to our community here. We have already put on Smogcon twice before and in this, our third year, we took the big step of hiring out an entire hotel to host the event and fully realise our vision. It is located just west of London and we already have 150 ticket holders from around the UK and various countries in Europe, so we are off to a cracking start! Full details can be found in our online brochure and new website Smogcon. Dates are February 21-23, 2014. Smogcon is a unique gaming event held in the UK and modelled after fabled American gaming conventions like Templecon, Warmachine Weekend, and Lock N Load. This will be the 3rd year of the event and it has practically exploded with activities compared to the first two years. In addition to Warmachine/Hordes tournaments and casual play, we have Malifaux, Dropzone Commander, Bushido, High Command, IK RPG and loads of other activities to look forward to. Painters will have lots to do there with a full suite of seminars/lessons and a full on painting competition called the Golden Thrall. Early bird tickets are on sale now and are lower than the normal ticket price for a limited time (until early November). The event’s hotel is fully booked at the moment, but there are plenty of other hotels in walking distance around it. Why not consider coming down and joining the fun? –The Smogcon...

The Best Kept Secret of Warmachine: Performance Enhancers

Posted by on 7:45 pm

The 2013 con season is coming to a close. Fall Recruits is less than a week away, and it’s very likely to be the last real chance I have at qualifying for a Masters. I feel confident saying that I’ve improved significantly this year, but I’ve accepted that, without some outside help, I’ll still be one win outside of qualifying. So, it’s time to bring out the big guns. If you’re like me, you’ve had your suspicions for a while. The same good players qualifying event after event. They’d like you to believe it’s because they spend time thinking about the game, learning with friends and pushing the boundaries of their play. But I’m here to tell you, your deepest, darkest suspicions are true. It’s like 2005 at the Tour de France in this place. First, you’re going to need something to mix everything in. Halloween is coming up, so if you’re the creative type, one of those terrible, plastic cauldrons would be both effective and funny. I went for the simple cooler Next, we need one of the essentials. This is the easiest ingredient to get a hold of, and one I highly recommend stockpiling. John Demaris’s Autograph. This one here is from Warmachine Weekend last year. It was hard to get in between all of the screaming young girls, but it was worth it. Rip it out and toss it in.   Then, we need an iOS or Android device that has succesfully paired with another copy of War Room. I’ve heard there’s bonus points for using a device that successfully completed a game in this mode, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Also it’s probably not possible. If it’s too large to fit in your mixing container, hit it with something heavy until it fits.     Now, we need to add the biggest dice you can get your hands on. If casino dice are the best you can do, I recommend stepping up your game. Toss them in.   Now, we’re going to really start getting into gear. You’re going to need to take some Everblight paraphernalia and rub it on Jake Van Meter. He’s a super nice dude, but remember: he’s from Detroit. They push dead bodies out of taxis. I recommend doing it when he isn’t looking. The more, the better:   A foot from a mannequin. I have no idea. My garage is full of weird things. Let’s just move along.   I know by now you have your doubts about the authenticity of some of these items. Trust me when I say, these are all real. But this one is the prize of the collection, and is essential to the effectiveness of this brew: Will Pagani’s hair. It was a long, complicated, unintentional process that ended with this in my possession. I’d recommend bribing Nik Preece to yank some out for you.   A purple shirt. I think you’re better off wearing this than trying to drink it, but do your own thing. Seriously, it’s a shirt, not a tent. I’m just a big dude.   Animal crackers! As a fat man, I firmly believe in frosting. Dump those in too. Finally, dump in a couple liters of 7-Up. You’ve come too far to screw up and use Sprite. Use the real lemon-lime.   All that’s...
