Let’s Not Do A ‘Year In Review’ Article, But Do A ‘Looking Forward To The New Year’ Article Instead…

If you asked me what I thought of the year 2020, I’d have to say it was a fantastic year for my hobbies… everything else aside. True, I didn’t get in as many games as I would have liked. Also true, I didn’t get to have as many good times with friends around the gaming table as in previous years. With the gaming postponed I used my extra time and found plenty of time for (the eventual…) betterment of my future-timey-time games.

What have The Sentry Box staff been up to – Dec 14-20

Tracy wanted redemption after the last game of Tidal Blades: Heroes of the Reef that didn’t go so well for her. “This time she tried Eko and I tried Axl, so I’ve now played four of the five characters. We also tried adding in the Special Announcements, which are a different end game scoring option instead of the individual player goals. Things went better for both of us, and we managed to keep our Rival third player down on the Champions board. It ended up being a pretty close game and although I won Tracy did redeem herself with a good score.”

Confused By The Amount Of Necromunda Books? Read This, Which May Help…Or At Least You Will Know What I Think…

For me, one of the main attractions of this new edition of Necromunda is just how well the books are written (rules nigglers sit down…I know there are a few mistakes…). The fluff, lore and general setting of Necromunda are thoroughly explored and provide an excellent base for modelling and gaming ideas. At this point though, players just getting up to speed may suffer from too much of a good thing. Currently, my bookshelf is crushed under the weight of eight Necromunda books. All beautiful, but are they all necessary?

What have The Sentry Box staff been up to – Nov 30-Dec 6

Greg and Tracy got Viscounts of the West Kingdom back to the table, “To try to make sure I got the rules down properly and don’t forget any little things (which I did last time). I still forgot one thing but I think I’ll be good for next time. In this game Tracy went heavy on manuscripts and ended up earning a whopping 50 points, plus 25 more in bonus points from them. I went for workers in the castle and a bit of building, and, as in the first game, Tracy thought I was crushing her only to end up winning the game herself. We both scored much better this time and it ended up being very close, with her winning 118 – 116.”
