Star Trek: Attack Wing A Matter of Honor Organized Play

attack wing

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek: Attack Wing – A Matter of Honor Episode OP event on Monday March 23rd at 6:00 pm.

While participating in an officer exchange program, your fleet has become engaged with an enemy fleet and an unknown substance has been discovered on the hulls of the ships of both fleets. The substance is a rare subatomic bacteria capable of doubling in size at a rapid rate and reacting with compounds in the structures of your ships’ hulls. If not treated, it will destroy the ships, but a method has been found to remove this destructive bacteria using a tunneling neutrino beam. Will your fleet be able to survive both the enemy fleet and the subatomic bacteria?

The event will use the build instructions which are available on the WizKid Games website.

South west game night

by Zac Beldan

Last night was the monthly board game night that one of my friends hosts in the south-west. As I didn’t have any other events scheduled for the weekend so I was happily able to go. The event starts after dinner and goes into the early morning and while I wasn’t able to stay the entire evening I did stay long enough to get in a few games. Since I work on Monday evenings I don’t get a chance to hang out at the Open Board Game night at the store so this was my first chance in a few months to play some new board games.

Heroes of Normandie

First off was a quick game of Heroes of Normandie. I was introducing the game to a new player so we tried one of the provided scenarios called Saving Private Rex. I played the Americans and my opponent picked the Germans. The goal of the scenario is for the Americans to find and rescue their General’s pet dog. The game was fun and it was easy to explain the rules but I was struck, yet again, that the true appeal of the game is in larger custom scenarios where you pick your own forces and have a larger number of available orders. The scenario we played was a quick win for the Americans as Private Rex randomly appeared in a space that was easy for me surround and keep away from the Germans.

Infinity Game Day

Operation Icestorm

Operation Icestorm

The Sentry Box will be hosting an Infinity game day on Sunday March 5th. Gaming will start at 12 noon and there will be miniatures and terrain provided if you want to learn the game. Bring down your figures and find some new opponents or come down and check out the premier sci-fi miniatures game available.

Infinity is a tabletop wargame in which sci-fi themed miniatures are used to simulate futuristic skirmishes.

Infinity recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions in the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their adequacy to the mission parameters at hand. Each battle calls for a different composition, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful operation.

Infinity is a groundbreaking, dynamic system that allows you to make meaningful, fun choices throughout the entire game sequence, and gives you the tools to implement any number of strategies with realism and flexibility.

We will be using terrain and figures from the Operation Icestorm starter set and they will be available for demo games.

If you want to check the game out in advance, the rulebook is available for download from the Corvus Belli website.
