We play a wide variety of tabletop miniatures games, including fantasy, sci-fi, and historical genres. Each game supported by NBG is organized by one or more curators that run demos, teach players, an organize leagues and tournaments. Below is an overview of some of the more popular games being played at the moment. If something catches your eye, reach out to one of our volunteer game curators to schedule a demo session. 

Don't see your system of choice? That's great -- we love learning new games! Contact an admin about becoming a curator of your preferred game and introducing it to the rest of Nu Brand Gaming. We'll get you set up with a demonstration event, promotions, terrain, and even help you introduce organized play to kickstart a community around your game.

Guild Ball

Guild Ball is a game generally played between neighbouring towns and villages on feast days (hence the popularity). But to prevent the inevitable collateral damage it rapidly evolved into being played in the surrounding countryside, often in a special field set aside for the purpose. At its core, players on opposing teams, clash and struggle to control leather wrapped inflated pig's bladder and attempt to kick it into the opponent’s goal. Over the years, rudimentary leagues and tournaments have sprung up, there have even been some national level games between city states.
