Guild Ball Season 2 Campaign teaser

We had big plans for today’s episode, going over the blurb of teaser info we had about the upcoming Guild Ball Season 2 campaign rules. But life being what it is, work and sickness took their toll, and we have to skip a week of release. Since it will all be old news by next week (release is this very Saturday), we’re going to change the main topic to  another subject.

In the meantime, we still have a small teaser for you about the new rules, thanks to the folks at Steamforged Games: the season 2 Rare Plot card Blind Eye.

blind eye plot

If you have missed it, we did a review of that amazing game on episode 27. Listen to it!

See you next week geeks!
