Crowdfunding Update: 4/20/2023

Things have been very busy on the Crowdfunding front at Sentry Box for the last couple of months.

This is just a highlight on some of the campaigns we have recently backed, as well as a some of the items that we are still looking forward to arriving.

Upcoming Campaigns:
I don’t have a lot to say about any of these, as they haven’t launched as of this writing, but here is a list of games that we will tentatively be creating retail pledges for, if available.


Current Campaign Highlights:

Santorini Co-op & Deluxe Pantheon Edition:

From BGG:

NOTE: Pantheon Edition includes all material from the Golden Fleece expansion, as well as every promo card and many new cards. A lot of cards are revamped, reworked, and rebalanced.

Santorini is an accessible strategy game, simple enough for an elementary school classroom while aiming to provide gameplay depth and content for hardcore gamers to explore, the rules are simple. Each turn consists of 2 steps:

1. Move – move one of your builders into a neighboring space. You may move your Builder Pawn on the same level, step-up one level, or step down any number of levels.

2. Build – Then construct a building level adjacent to the builder you moved. When building on top of the third level, place a dome instead, removing that space from play.

3. Winning the game – If either of your builders reaches the third level, you win.

Also: Variable player powers – Santorini features variable player powers layered over an otherwise abstract game, with many thematic god and hero powers that fundamentally change the way the game is played.

Fractured Sky:

From BGG:

Fractured Sky by IV Studios is a game of deduction, sneaky strategy, and resource management set on a fantastical island. Players lead their kingdom in the hunt for shards of fractured falling stars, which are rumored to grant wishes to those that can amass enough of them. 

Using airships, players send their armies to regions with the star shards, but finding those is not always easy and hiring seers to predict their falls can be worth the investment. Over time, players will increase their presence on the island, placing permanent buildings to give them advantages like extra resources or increasing the size of their troop numbers.

Only one wish will be granted, so who will amass the most shards before the final star falls?

Zombicide: White Death

From BGG:

Winter is upon us and its dark and cruel night brings forth dreadful menaces, worse than frostbite…

Zombicide Medieval Fantasy is back!

With new survivors, new zombies, new setting, and new rules!

Scale the great walls to your advantage…and much more.

Past Campaigns:

Marvel United: Multiverse:
This was a smash hit with our Crowdfunding Group on Facebook and is the single largest campaign that I have personally overlooked in my time at The Box.

A total of 28 different SKU’s have been placed into our system, with around 250 total preorders taken.  We closed our pledge manager for this campaign last week and are not eagerly waiting for it to be delivered early 2024.

We still have limited space for preorders on this one, so if you are looking to adding some multiverse chaos to your games of Marvel United, don’t hesitate to reach out to the store and we will help you out.  The only catch is that because our order numbers have already been committed, there is a possibility we may collect more preorders than we have allocated inventory, but that should only be a problem on a handful of SKUs, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Maple Valley / Creature Comforts reprint:

This was another very successful campaign that we were involved in and are expecting delivery just in time for Christmas this year.  The exciting part of this one, is that at the last minute KTBG announced that there would be an additional game for sale called Diced Veggies, and that if people committed to it through the preorder process, it would be delivered at the same time, for no additional shipping charges.
