Alright, I love that they've released a two-player starter set, and want it now! That said, what else do I need? I see that there are no Plot Cards included for instance. So, what would you pick up in addition to Kick Off?

I'm going under the assumption you haven't played Guild Ball yet, so apologies if that's a misconception.

Here's the great thing about this starter set- you don't need to get anything else, at least at the start! It comes with two full 6-man teams, and all the dice, tokens and templates for two players...all things you would have had to purchase separately.

Yes, there are no plot cards, but that may be because they are cutting them in season 3(we don't know yet). But if they are having them, you can always either pick up the Season 2 plot cards, or like me, just print them out from the website.

You could also buy additional models for the two teams that are included, but I would personally hold off on that until you see which of the two you prefer playing.

Does anyone know if they'll be bringing the rest of the models over to Season3 in plastic and more affordable?

I've only played one demo game at SPIEL, and loved it. I was thinking of ordering extras to save on shipping, before realizing the they don't ship outside the UK. Now I have to find a local store that carries the game instead.

I had no idea that they might drop plot cards altogether. Interesting.

Yeah, I would hold off on that.

I would love to see all the teams in pre-assembled, or one-piece plastic.

They just announced at their first SteamCon convention that they are moving to one-piece plastic miniatures. The new guild coming out next April (Farmers) will be the first. I believe the current models will be moved over to plastic as well but I do not believe they announced a time frame for that.

Plot cards for Season 3 are going to happen. They will be available for download on the Steamforged site on 11/28/2016 and for purchase shortly after.

My gaming group prefers to play without plot cards. We don't like the unknown aspect of the cards. Guild ball is my most favorite miniatures game and I have played most all of the big named games.
