Guild Ball is a sport for the masses, where glory is won and lost with the kick of a ball. Each season, new coaches emerge and forge their path to greatness. Compelled by the call of the pitch and the promise of greatness, one of these coaches will earn the title of World Champion. Whoever you are, know this: your journey begins today. Are you ready?
The Las Vegas Open (Feb. 3–5) is just around the corner, and it’s packed with exciting, new ways to experience the latest season of Guild Ball. To help you prepare for the festivities, we have compiled the following short list of questions and answers to cover everything from schedules to event rules.
Hello Sports Fans!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Steamforged HQ. The tree has been dressed, the halls have been decked and cheesy songs are blaring out of the speakers. We thought we’d pass on the festive cheer by bringing you a Christmas Sale!
When: The sale will start on December 12th 08:00GMT and will run until December 16th 20:00GMT
- The 8 Player Guild Bundles will be back at £65, and £75 for the Hunter’s Guild
- Mason’s Guild Kick Off! Christmas Booster (Hammer, Chisel, Wrecker, Veteran Harmony) - £30
- Brewer’s Guild Kick Off! Christmas Booster (Esters, Mash, Quaff, Veteran Spigot) - £35

We had an absolutely stonking time gaming, chatting, and just generally hanging out with such a huge number of genuinely awesome people this weekend at SteamCon. This event was an absolute blast that proved just how lucky we are to have such a passionate and amazing community. We are truly, truly grateful to everyone who could be there and everyone who tuned in online! Here’s a quick recap of the event’s biggest news.
We have big news about Guild Ball products and accessories! As we’ve explained in earlier posts, Season 3 will debut at SteamCon with the release of Kick Off! and an early release of Season 3 Player Cards.
As we get ready to hit the Pitch for the new season, we have some Season 1 & 2 products that will no longer be available for purchase after SteamCon weekend.
These products include:
- Season 2 Rulebook
- Icy Sponge Tokens
- Guild Token Sets
- Alchemist Token Set
- Brewer Token Set
- Butcher Token Set
- Engineer Token Set
- Fisherman Token Set
- Hunter Token Set
- Mason Token Set
- Mortician Token Set
- Union Token Set
- Resin Base Toppers
- Standard Resin Model
Now, we know many hobbyists and coaches have been big fans of our Resin Model Line or have already invested in the Guild Token Sets and will be sad to see them go. Retiring a product isn’t something we take lightly. Based on several factors, such as community feedback, upcoming releases, and the overall direction of the Guild Ball experience, we felt now was the best time to retire these products.
Our decisions all come back to upholding the core value that first inspired Guild Ball: Creating the best possible play experience for you, our community. Our vision for Guild Ball and the future of Steamforged Games will be discussed in greater detail during SteamCon’s Saturday keynote, which will be available online.
THE FUTURE OF GUILD BALL TOKENS
More exciting news! Each new season brings the promise of fresh and exciting games and challenges, which is exactly what’s happening with Guild Ball token sets. We are thrilled to announce our licensing agreements with Muse on Minis and Frozen Forge, who will now be producing the token sets for Guild Ball. These will debut at SteamCon, so be sure to look for them at SteamCon in the store!
Please Note: Both companies will continue the same style and look of our existing range of tokens - so there will be no need for customers to 're-purchase' existing tokens sets, etc.
