What is Guild Ball?
The Empire of the Free Cities was nearly left in ruins after the climax of the dreadful Century War. That was until the Guilds stepped in. Now, what they say goes. A word in the right ear can be as deadly as a knife in the back.
Mob football was once a casual pastime in the Empire of the Free Cities, with games played between neighboring towns during festivals.
Today, the Guilds use the sport to flex their political might and Guild Ball is perhaps the most deadly aspect of life in the Empire.
Politicians see Guild Ball as an opportunity for profit. Players on the pitch see it as a chance to attain fame and glory. And the fans? Well, they're just there for a bloody good time...
Guild Ball is a fast paced skirmish miniatures game for two players. Pick your guild of choice (from the bloodthirsty Butchers to the nimble Fishermen), build your roster of players and duke it out on the pitch in a brutal, no-holds-barred contest to victory ... or death!
Before you arrive on the field, create a roster of twelve players from your chosen guild. At the start of each game, select six players (including a Captain and a Mascot) from your roster to face off against your opponent.
A game of Guild Ball is played to twelve victory points. Scoring a goal is worth four points, while taking out an enemy player is worth two. Different teams focus on football, fighting, or a mixture of both!
