New arrivals for Friday September 23rd, 2016

Something about the weather or the day makes me want to do a Conan “what is best in life” joke but I think that I have already done that and its been done to death. Rather like “Hitler reacts to the new arrivals at The Sentry Box” which is something no-one wants to see.

What people do want to see is the Dead of Winter – The Long Night stand-alone expansion as well as Codename Pictures. None of which come with a Conan joke.

Small World – Learn To Play

Small World

Come out the The Sentry Box on Monday September 19th from 6:30 – 9:30pm and learn how to play Small World from Days of Wonder.

In Small World, players vie for conquest and control of a world that is simply too small to accommodate them all.

Designed by Philippe Keyaerts as a fantasy follow-up to his award-winning Vinci™, Small World is inhabited by a zany cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs and even humans; who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth.

Picking the right combination from the 14 different fantasy races and 20 unique special powers, players rush to expand their empires – often at the expense of weaker neighbours. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory!

Star Trek Attack Wing – The Trouble with Tribbles OP event

The Trouble With Tribbles OP

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek Attack Wing – The Trouble with Tribbles OP event on Wednesday September 21st at 6:30pm. Entry for the event is $5.00. We hope to start games at 6:30 sharp so please show up early and have your fleet list prepared.

While heading towards the disputed Sherman’s Planet after a shore leave on Deep Space Station K7, your fleet is set upon by an enemy fleet that was also at the space station. Both fleets have brought some tribbles on board their ships from the station.

Will the small creatures cause problems for your fleet during the battle? Or will they help your ships to achieve victory?

Players will need a 120 SP fleet built according to the current fleet building rules. We will not be using a Blind Booster for this event.

The prize kit for the event includes:

  • Three (3) Kohlar’s Battle Cruiser/D7-Class Starship Prize Card Packs
  • Ten (10) Scan Cycle Limited Edition Resource and Reference Participation Prize Card

New arrivals for Friday September 2nd, 2016

All the signs of fall are beginning to appear. The birds are starting to flock together for their trip south, the leaves are turning yellow and The Sentry Box has received copies of the new edition of the Call of Cthulhu RPG. I’m pretty sure that last one is a sign of fall. Or was it the Fall. Either way its going to get colder.

In addition we also have the Polaris RPG and some new goodies from Fantasy Flight Games in stock. Come down and check it all out. And also ask Assistant Manager Drew to do his Sandy Petersen impression for you. Its so good its uncanny.

New arrivals for Wednesday August 24th, 2016

It has been a while since we have posted New Releases on our blog. If you are a fan of our Facebook page you’ve been seeing weekly(ish) photo dumps but sadly we have been neglecting the blog. No longer though!

This week brings more goodies to soothe the soul of the modern gamer. Lots of fun stuff including the New Warmachine Two-Player Starter Boxes and two versions of Are You the Cultist. What a time we live in.

And canny gamers might also see the late-great Prince’s favourite game in the list as well. And no, it isn’t Nothing Compares 2 Hordes.

Star Trek Attack Wing: Corbomite Maneuver OP

The Corbomite Maneuver

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek Attack Wing: Corbomite Maneuver OP event on Wednesday August 24th at 6:30pm. Entry for the event is $5.00. We hope to start games at 6:30 sharp so please show up early and have your fleet list prepared.

While mapping an unexplored region of space, an unidentified object approaches your fleet at light speed, but it slows down as it nears your ships. As you attempt to move away from it, it follows your every move and won’t let you escape. You determine that it is a space buoy and quickly learn that it is emitting a radiation that is harmful to your ships. You must find a way to escape it or destroy it.

Suddenly, you are set upon by an enemy fleet. The enemy ships seem to have the same problems with the buoy. Will your fleet survive the deadly radiation as well as the attacks from the enemy fleet?

Players will need a 120 SP fleet built according to the current fleet building rules. We will not be using a Blind Booster for this event.

The prize kit for the event includes:

  • Three (3) Limited Edition I.R.W. Rateg/Romulan Bird-of-Prey Prize Card Packs
