New arrivals for Wednesday February 24th, 2016

Another Wednesday comes and with it the fresh, crisp smell of new arrivals at The Sentry Box. Either that or Gord has opened a laundry in the Military section without telling us. Hopefully he doesn’t put too much starch in the Pathfinder Flip Mats this time.

World of Yo-ho by iello

World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of adventure and piracy on the high seas. It’s a new type of game, for 2 to 4 players, that combines the tangible and social pleasure of a board game with the interactive mechanics of a video game. Become the most famous pirate of this parallel world full of intelligent animals, lost islands, and wild magic. The app is free and brings hilarious animations and sound effects to your battles and explorations.

Scoundrel Society by Action Phase Games

Scoundrel Society is the first Small Box/Big Fun game from Action Phase Games where players take on the role of a member of The Society, a gathering of notable con artists who come together once a year to show off their craft by proving who can steal the most loot from the mark without getting caught. Loot is lifted from the mark by playing one of five action cards, most of which work best when played alone. But tread carefully: while many pieces of loot have unique abilities that can affect the game, each carries a suspicion value. So when Constable Cramphorn is revealed from the last ten cards of the loot deck, the player with the highest suspicion score is apprehended, leaving the rest to compare the value of their ill-gotten gains to determine who is the most dirty and rotten of the Scoundrel Society.

Hostage Negotiator by Van Ryder Games

In Hostage Negotiator you play the part of a law enforcement agent responsible for negotiating the release of hostages taken by an unscrupulous figure hell bent on having his or her demands met.

Each turn in the game represents a conversation between you and the Hostage Taker. You’ll play cards and roll dice to increase Conversation points, decrease the Threat level, and release hostages. Hostage Negotiator uses a unique “Hand-Building” mechanic that puts cards you purchase directly in your hand for next turn rather than leaving you wondering when the cards will show up like in deck building games.

Ninja Camp by Action Phase Games

Ninja Camp pits animal martial artist clans against one another in a training exercise where the best clan will become the personal ninja apprentices of Sensei Saru. Each player starts with two cards, each representing a ninja skill, with the rest of the deck making up the game board. By using the cards in their hand, players navigate the board, adding new skills to their hand as they do—and leaving fewer movement options for their fellow campers. Each player also has a unique ninja ability that he can use once per game to try to turn the game in his favor. A game that sets up and plays in thirty minutes or less, Ninja Camp is sure to provide hours of fun for families and future ninjas!
