New arrivals for Thursday October 15th, 2015

It has been a busy few weeks at The Sentry Box and so we are a bit behind on posting our new releases. Thankfully things have become more normal (the fact that this co-incides with the return of store manager Greg Jackson is purely co-incidental) and so our posting of all things bright and shrink-wrapped can continue apace.

Space Cadet Away Missions by Stronghold Games

Space Cadets: Away Missions is a cooperative, scenario-based, tactical action game for 1-6 players, which is set in the Golden Age of science fiction. In this game, the third standalone title in the Space Cadets franchise of cooperative/team space-themed games from Stronghold Games, players take on the roles of adventurous human spacemen who explore UFOs, acquire Alien technology and fight hostile extraterrestrials.

Each turn, spacemen have three action points to spend on activities such as firing their atomic rifles, analyzing exotic equipment, or subduing the malicious Brain-in-a-Jar. When the spacemen are finished, the aliens take their turns by following simple movement and combat protocols; seven types of hostile aliens threaten the players, from the repulsive mind leeches to the rampaging titanic sentinels.

Space Cadets: Away Missions contains twenty scenarios linked in a campaign story. Each mission features different combinations of aliens on different spaceships, with hexagonal map tiles arranged to form flying saucers, rocket ships, space stations, etc. Cooperation, tactical planning and good dice are essential if the spacemen hope to overcome the relentless horde of little green men.

Attack Wing Ancient Brass Dragon by WizKids

Today is one of those days when things are going to get rough. Eshaedra the blue dragon seeks to claim this desert for herself, and she’s called in a lot of favors to mount a formidable legion against Vargachir. Will the ancient brass dragon’s bond with the desert she loves allow her to prevail against the evil invaders?

Your Hired Guns can make life difficult for the Rebel heroes with the addition of a new three-card Agenda set that includes a new campaign side mission. Alternatively, the Hired Guns can be a potent addition to your skirmish armies as disposable warriors to make an opening assault or work as a screen for your more powerful figures. You’ll also find a new skirmish map that invites you to complete two new missions within the sewers of Nar Shaddaa, while four new Command cards allow you to flee from your enemies or push them further away from victory when they destroy your units!

Imperial Assault Stormtroopers Expansion by Fantasy Flight Games

Reinforce your legions of Stormtroopers with the Stormtroopers Villain Pack! The Stormtroopers were first introduced in the Imperial Assault Core Set, but the Stormtroopers Villain Pack brings deadly new tactics and abilities to these most loyal servants of the Empire, as well as three new Stormtrooper figures that feature an alternate figure sculpt. In your campaigns, this expansion offers the new Vader’s Fist Agenda set, allowing you to goad the Rebel heroes into an attempt to sabotage the training facility of the renowned 501st Legion. For your skirmish games, a brand-new skirmish upgrade represents the training of the 501st Legion, offering two potent new abilities to any Stormtrooper squad. At the same time, new Command cards reinforce figures after they die or invite your figures to engage in stealth tactics. Whether you play a campaign or a skirmish, this Villain Pack easily expands the ranks of your Stormtrooper armies.

Imperial Assault Wookie Warriors Expansion by Fantasy Flight Games

Two Wookiee Warriors join the Rebel Alliance with the Wookiee Warriors Ally Pack, and they’re prepared to destroy any who stand between them and the freedom of their species. A new campaign side mission gives you the chance to demonstrate the foolishness of angering a Wookiee, and invites you to call upon the Wookiee Warriors in later campaigns. Your skirmish strike teams can also reap the benefits of an alliance with the Wookiees. These trained warriors are fearsome in a brawl, and the addition of a new skirmish map only offers more opportunities to vanquish your foes. With new Command cards to support your strike team, the Wookiee Warriors Ally Pack is a worthy addition to any skirmish list.

Coven by 8th Summit

Coven is a game of secret alignments for 3-5 players in which each player represents a Witch serving either the darkness or the light. Not only is your starting alignment a secret, but each of the five non-player Goddesses has an unknown alignment as well. Deducing which Goddess(es) and which other player(s) share your alignment will make your strategy clear and victory easier to achieve, but not guaranteed by any means. Gameplay is deceptively simple, with five possible actions as players traverse a circular board with an inner pentagram rotating widdershins changing tactics with each rotation. Coven presents an interesting strategic challenge: the side (Light or Dark) that scores the most Balance defeats the opposing side — but on the dominating side, only the Witch that scores the most Power can win, so players must be careful not to invest too much in one while neglecting the other.

Coven: The Village expansion by 8th Summit

Cover: The Village includes a new rotating Inner Wheel to replace the one from the base game. It also adds 36 Village Cards the replace the original Balance Cards, and a Village card is read when the new Inner Wheel triggers the Full Moon. Suspicion Tokens track how suspicious the villagers are of each player, and are gained whenever you increase Balance. Suspicion may also gain Personal Edict Cards, which are penalties that last for the remainder of the game, and may even prevent you from winning unless certain conditions are met. Coven: The Village also includes 36 Village Cards, 15 Personal Edict Cards, 30 Suspicion Tokens, 5 new Reference Cards, Rules, a six sided die, and an additional spindle.

Snow Tails by Renegade Game Studios

Snow Tails is set in the snowy world of the Arctic Circle, where brave sledders compete in a test of skill and endurance. Action is fast and furious and not all sleds may make it to the finish. Huskies only have one setting and that is full speed! Hang on to your furs, the reins, your sled and anything else you can get hold of.

The game contains modular track pieces which can be fitted together to form different courses. Players have their own Dog Decks which they draw from and play onto their sled mat. Movement is rarely in a straight line as the sled may drift left or right. Losing control or speeding into a corner results in Dent cards being acquired which will limit a player’s hand size.

Each round you play a single character in order to send your astronauts into space, make secret discoveries about the zones you occupy, or sabotage other corporations. You’ll need to develop a clever plan, keep an eye on your competitors, and even use a few dirty tricks to win the race for the red planet’s riches in this fast-paced, hotly competitive game!
