During the last 7 weeks we’ve backed 8 more projects and received 3 backed projects in the store.  If you want to be updated when new products – including Kickstarters – arrive at Sentry Box, follow us on Facebook.  And if you see a project you want, just contact us at the store to be added to the pre-orders for the project. It works just like any other order at the store, you only pay when you pick up the game.

What have The Sentry Box Staff been up to – March 18-24

New arrival from GAMA Tiny Towns made it to the table on Monday Board Gaming Night. Greg, “Got another chance to play this new game, and this time we added the monuments, which are individual buildings each player can build. Looking forward to trying some of the other options too.” Renee, “Monday I was really happy to get to try Tiny Towns after seeing so many pics and mentions of it coming out of GAMA. It is a fun, quick little game that requires quite a bit of planning. You place resources on the squares, each player taking a turn to decide what everyone has to place, and then you need to create certain patterns in order to build the different buildings. The tricky part is not having control of which resources you get to place and making sure that when you build your buildings you leave spaces you can use to create the necessary patterns. Sounds easier than it is. Hoping to get it to the table again soon.”

What have The Sentry Box been up to March 11-17

This week we have a lot of content from the staff stuck at the store in Calgary as well as a slew of games Greg was able to check out at GAMA in Reno.

Renee played Clank! In! Space! with the Apocolypse! expansion at Monday Night Board Gaming. “It was a lot of fun to play this game again and awesome to finally play it as a 4 player game after having only played it with 2 players in the past. I definitely enjoyed it more at the higher count, with more competition on the board and the cards in the market changing with higher frequency. The expansion was great – I loved that it added a different scenario and some additional mechanics to the game, while making the game just feel like a better version of the original. If I ever pick this up, I’ll definitely grab Apocalypse as well. In the scenario we played, as black cubes came out we lost things – including 2 of the 4 escape pods. This made it a tight race to get out, and while I wan’t sure I’d actually escape, I was hoping to at least make it to the Cargo Bay so I wouldn’t die….but one turn away from accomplishing this, Kevin unceremoniously had Lord Eradikus kill both Setareh and me. Oh well, maybe next time.”
