Will you be the first to make contact?

Guild Ball is a fantasy-themed medieval football game that blends elements of rugby with the game mechanics of modern miniature games like Warmachine and Malifaux to create a fast-moving, easy to learn miniature game. Guild Ball only requires 6 miniatures per team and is played on a 3′ x 3′ area with limited terrain making it an accessible game for people new to tabletop miniatures.

Star Trek: Attack Wing – The Classic Movies OP – The Voyage Home

Classic Movies OP

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek: Attack Wing- The Classic Movies- The Voyage Home OP event on Wednesday July 13th at 6:30pm.

While you are battling with an enemy fleet, an alien probe enters your sector. This probe is draining the power from everything that it comes in contact with and none of your efforts have had any effect on it. The probe seems to be on a course towards the Earth. Can you avoid this strange probe and defeat your enemy? Or will you be left powerless in space?

The format for the Month Three Event is a Sealed/Constructed format using the “The Voyage Home” special rules and the standard Squad Building Rules (on pg. 21 of the Full Rules of Play). The starting Fleet Build is 90 SP. Players will build an additional 40pt ship using the contents of a blind booster.

Upon completion of the event, the Improved Hull Cards are the Participation Prizes to be awarded to each player.

The H.M.S. Bounty Prize Packs are to be awarded to the First (Admiral) and Red Shirt (Fellowship) players. The U.S.S. Enterprise-A Storyline Grand Prize is to be awarded to the player with the highest total Battle Points after the Month Three Event.

New releases for Friday June 17th, 2016

Two new release posts in as many days?! Clearly your sacrifices to Centeotl have been answered. Or was I the only one doing that? In any case, there is a harvest-like bounty of new releases today including many new RPGs.

JurassAttack! by Green Couch Games

In JurassAttack! by Ryan Cowler two players face off in an epic face-to-face dinosaur battle!

In the game, each player chooses a dinosaur or pack of dinosaurs of the same type from their hand, then they reveal them simultaneously to compare Ferocity values. The player with the highest total Ferocity wins the round, taking their rival’s dinosaurs into their score pile. Different types of dinosaurs are worth varying amounts of victory points, so it’s important to plan well and make sure not to give away too many points in the event of a knockout!

Its an exciting day at The Sentry Box. Why? The arrival of fun new games an expansions of course. That and Assistant Manager Drew has promised to take us all to Dairy Queen for a cone after work. But enough talk of cold soft-serve treats, here are the new arrivals for today.

Captain Carcass by Mayday Games

Welcome to Captain Carcass, a world of underwater adventure and danger. Captain Carcass is a 2-4 player game that is a press-your-luck style game that many have described as “Incan Gold meets Blackjack”.

There are 10 suits in the game and 6 cards of each suit. Players take turns revealing cards. Play until you choose to “bank” your cards and keep them for scoring at the end of the game, or press your luck too far and “bust” if you reveal a 2nd card of the same suit in your turn. When the deck runs out players sum the highest card from each of the 10 suits and the highest score wins! Simple right? Well each of the 10 suits has a special ability which is activated every time a card is played, making for some clever combinations and some difficult decisions.
