What is Longshanks?

Longshanks allows organizers to easily publicize events and manage player pairings. It allows players to easily find and participate in local events, see what other events are happening around the world, and follow the global metagame.

Longshanks is owned and operated by Windy City Game Lab, LLC. Names, images, logos, and other game-specific trademarks are property of their respective owners.

Why the name?

In the lore of Guild Ball, tournaments and games between the various guilds are organized by a powerful and secretive society known as "the Longshanks." Because this site was originally developed specifically for Guild Ball, the name was a perfect fit.

Since expanding to support other game systems, Longshanks has outgrown that reference. We continue using the name as a respectful nod to the game that got us started and all the players and event hosts who have supported us since the beginning.
