Warhammer Diskwars overview

Header

Today was a Marvel Dicemasters event at the store and even though I wasn’t playing I was helping run it for Sentry Box. While I was there I asked Bill to come down and introduce me to the Warhammer Diskwars game from Fantasy Flight.

Diskwars is a product that I was intrigued by when it was first announced but I passed it by during its initial releases. The reason was that the promotional material that FFG released made it look very character focused and less about troops and war machines. It wasn’t until the release of the second expansion, adding the Vampire Counts and a smattering of Skaven and Dark Elves, that I was able to see that it was more troop oriented and had a very good range of units and factions.

Call of Cthulhu LCG game day

Call of Cthulhu LCG

On Saturday December 20th, Sentry Box will be hosting a Call of Cthulhu LCG game day.

The weird world of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos has drawn in fans for more than eighty years, with its richly painted themes of suspense, adventure, and the eerie unknown. Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game is fully immersed in this world and what is more, places you, as a player, in control of some of the facets of that world.

A typical game of Call of Cthulhu plays very quickly between two players and it has a high-level of player interaction, analysis of open information, planning and strategy. There is a wide variety of possible combinations of factions (Syndicate with Agency, Cthulhu with Hastur, etc.) and each combination will necessitate a different, challenging approach, providing high levels of re-playability.

One of the major appeals of the Living Card Game® format is that it gives you not only a solid game experience, full of strategy and excitement, but it also allows you to customize your gaming experience to your liking. As you customize your deck from the Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game card pool, you get to build a strategy around your personal play style. Your options for deck-building are wide open and will continue to grow as we release more Asylum Packs, which will introduce new cards to the card pool every month.

Demo decks will be available if you would like to try to game out and there will also be opponents if you are already a fan and player of the game. Promo cards will be available for players who participate.

Rules and tutorial videos for the game are available on the Call of Cthulhu support page.

A Game of Thrones LCG Game Day

Game of Thrones LCG

Come down to Sentry Box on Saturday December 6th to play the Game of Thrones LCG from Fantasy Flight Games.

Across the Seven Kingdoms, the Great Houses of Westeros struggle to control the Iron Throne. The battle begins here in the A Game of Thrones Core Game.
The beloved heroes, villains, locations, and events of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga come to life in this customizable card game. Players take control of the Starks, Baratheons, Lannisters, or Targaryens and attempt to plot, fight, conspire, manipulate, and bribe their way to victory.

The A Game of Thrones card game can be played in a multiplayer “melee” format with 3-4 players, or in a one-on-one “joust” format with 2 players. But whichever format you choose, the game has only just begun! In the world of the Living Card Game™, hundreds of additional cards are available separately, allowing players to customize the four houses included here, or create entirely original decks.

Demo decks will be available if you are interested in trying out the game and there will be opponents on hand if you have the game and are looking for competitors.

Rules for the game and tutorial videos are available on the FFG website

Warhammer Disk Wars Open Gaming

disk wars 2

Sentry Box will be holding open gaming and demos for the Warhammer Disk Wars game on Saturday November 29th. For more information about the game check out the Fantasy Flight Games website.

Based upon the original Diskwars game design by Christian T. Petersen and Tom Jolly, Warhammer: Diskwars features a fast-moving combat system that allows players to setup and resolve full, hard-hitting, tactical battles in an hour or less. The game has been updated for its new setting within the Warhammer world and features flexible rules for hero-centric army-building. Additionally, whereas the original Diskwars was a collectible game, Warhammer: Diskwars has moved away from the blind buy model, and the Core Set includes everything necessary for two to four players to play the game.

At the heart of the game’s conflicts are its disks, which represent heroes and units from across the Old World. During the game, you activate these disks, flipping them end over end to move them across the battlefield and position them to attack.
