What have The Sentry Box staff been up to – April 25-May 1

Renee and Jenn played Isle of Cats again, this time with the Kittens + Beasts expansion. “Beasts are special tiles you rescue on the first day and add to your boat. They each have 3 cat families they want to befriend on the boat, so if you place the correct colour cat family next to them you get to add a beast meeple to your boat for extra points. This definitely adds an additional element of strategy to your game. Kittens are smaller cat tiles that are always available to rescue, however each day only the fastest player gets to rescue kittens, so you have to strategize about when you want to make sure you are the fastest. In addition, because kittens are smaller, you can fit 2 in a basket, allowing you to add more tiles to your boat in a round. This makes it easier to create cat families and they fit almost anywhere! Both these modules allowed for more opportunities for points so it’s not surprising we both had by far our highest scores. We were also both very impressed that Jenn managed to almost completely fill her boat! That is not easy to do.”
