Android Netrunner tournament

Netrunner

Come down to The Sentry Box on Saturday November 10th and participate in an Android Netrunner tournament. Entry to the event will be $5.00 and we will have prizes available from the Q3 Game Night Kit. Decks for the event must be built using the restrictions in the most recent Most Wanted List.

Android: Netrunner is a two-player Living Card Game® set in a dystopian, cyberpunk future where monolithic megacorps own and control the vast majority of human interests.

While corporation players try to score points by advancing their agendas, they have to guard their intellectual properties from the elite and subversive hackers known as netrunners. Netrunners attempt to win the game by stealing the corp’s agendas, by any means possible!

The Lord of the Rings 2018 Fellowship Event

Lord of the Rings 2018 Fellowship Event

Come to The Sentry Box on Saturday November 3rd to participate in the Lord of the Rings 2018 Fellowship Event. Entry to the event will be $15.00 and we will have prizes from the Fellowship 2018 event kit. The event starts at noon so please come in early to register.

The 2018 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Fellowship Event brings you back to the forest where your adventures first began, but you’ll find that everything’s darker and more sinister this time around. Even you.

Centered around The Woodland Realm custom scenario kit, the 2018 Fellowship Event allows you to embrace your inner Sauron and design an adventure deadly enough to frighten even the doughtiest Elves and Rangers. Then you can test your mettle by playing through it yourself—or you can hand it over to another team of players and watch them brave its many perils as you race through the scenario they hand you.

Will you hunt your rivals with packs of giant spiders? Will you pummel them with trolls? Try to disorient them amid a maze of dark, enchanted locations? Threat them out with a barrage of treachery cards? Or try something else altogether? The choice is yours at the 2018 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Fellowship Event.

What Have the Sentry Box Staff up to – Oct 8-14

This week  we get to see Amanda’s finished boat, more painting by Sue and as always, games! Unsurprisingly Greg started his week with more Ganz Schön Clever, “Still playing this pretty regularly and I’d say my scores are slowly improving. It’s just so quick, easy and addictive.” He played again later in the week with disappointing results, ” A bonehead move in the final round meant that despite going into the round with four re-rolls I ended up only being able to take one die and finished the game with a +1 I wasn’t able to use, giving me my lowest ever score at 139. Ouch.”
