Winter’s harsh bite begins to descend onto the city but things are bright and cheery here at The Sentry Box if only because we received a supply of ‘the shiny new’ today.

504 by Stronghold Games
504 is a revolutionary concept in game design. 504 offers the game enthusiast 504 different games in a single box, achieving this via the use of nine game modules, which can be merged together to form 504 unique play experiences. The nine modules arePick-up & Deliver, Race, Privileges, Military, Exploring, Roads, Majorities, Production,and Shares.
In 504, players use the spiral bound “Book of 504 Worlds“, selecting three different modules in any order from the nine available, and thereby creating a unique “World”.
The new week begins and with it comes, not just the promise of new experiences and thrills but, a set of new arrivals. The store actually got very few new products today but we did get a tsunami of restocks. So if you’ve been waiting for a product to arrive back in stock you may want to touch base with the store and check.

Dungeon Crawl Classics #67: Sailors on the Starless Sea Artist’s Choice cover
Following their victory over the dragon, the heroes are on a search for the Star Shield. Its great power could turn out to be a blessing or a curse, should it get into the wrong hands. And as if that weren’t enough, a pack of hungry wolves has been sighted in Andor. If the heroes can only manage to tame their leader, though, the wolves can become loyal allies in the fight against a reawakened evil.
Something evil and eldritch has entered the store and its not just local social media wonk Zac this time. The store has received stock of Shadows over Normandie, the Cthulhu inspired expansion of the Heroes of Normandie WWII-action game.
And we got some other stuff as well, nothing as evil though unless you count Fluxx.

New Dawn by Stronghold Games
Twenty years after the Alliance was formed, the cost of constructing new space stations is becoming unbearable.
In order to improve the economy, the Alliance has decided to rebuild and recolonize some of the planets and space facilities who were abandoned during the war. By activating them once more, the Alliance is hoping to acquire the much needed funds and resources.
In New Dawn – a thematic sequel to Among the Stars and part of the Among the Stars Universe series – players take the role of Alliance officials.
Their assignment is to explore and revive a galactic sector. By developing various technologies and dispatching ambassadors, each player has the chance to visit abandoned planets, military facilities and space stations and establish bases to maintain control. Competition is fierce, and each mistake in maintaining control can cost dearly…
Both New Dawn and Among the Stars: Revival are compatible with the Among The Stars: Miniatures Pack accessory, which brings even more thematic elements and a great look to your games in the Among the Stars Universe.

Thanks to everyone who showed up to the second Massing at Sullust event at The Sentry Box yesterday. It was a very close event with the difference between third and sixth being two points.
The top four were
James Rodney (Imperial Class Star Destroyer)
Scott Jackson (Home One)
Matt Lalonde (MC30c Frigate)
Alex Thompson (Imperial Raider)
The final game pitted Scott with Rebels against James with the Imperials and Scott managed an impressive sweep of the Imperials to clinch the overall top spot.
We had several door prizes to give away, generously donated by Gamesmith and Galaxy Gaming Gear (both local companies). Steve Hall won the Armada Game Tray and tokens and Paul Hrynyszyn won the Laser Line tool.
Dayna Little was awarded the Rogues and Villains pack as a consolation prize.
The traffic outside the store is still a perilous situation worthy of a hearty band of Argonauts (or Coureur des bois) and yet the flow of new releases still continues to the store. Thank goodness for the brave UPS drivers. Today’s haul includes a little something for everyone (as long as they like games).
In Galaxy Command, 1 to 4 players take the role of a galaxy commander. Each tries to maintain a delicate balance of resources, military power, and technological achievements as they explore the galaxy. Game play is fast and fun with varied decisions to be made by each player during their missions.
In each game of Galaxy Command there are near and far systems that must be overcome in order to bring in new resources and wealth. Near systems must be explored before attempting to reach far systems. Some far systems require key technology to be reached with any chance of success. Near systems provide resources that can build your military strength and develop technologies allowing you to overcome challenges as you go deeper into space.
