New arrivals for Friday September 2nd, 2016

All the signs of fall are beginning to appear. The birds are starting to flock together for their trip south, the leaves are turning yellow and The Sentry Box has received copies of the new edition of the Call of Cthulhu RPG. I’m pretty sure that last one is a sign of fall. Or was it the Fall. Either way its going to get colder.

In addition we also have the Polaris RPG and some new goodies from Fantasy Flight Games in stock. Come down and check it all out. And also ask Assistant Manager Drew to do his Sandy Petersen impression for you. Its so good its uncanny.

New arrivals for Wednesday August 24th, 2016

It has been a while since we have posted New Releases on our blog. If you are a fan of our Facebook page you’ve been seeing weekly(ish) photo dumps but sadly we have been neglecting the blog. No longer though!

This week brings more goodies to soothe the soul of the modern gamer. Lots of fun stuff including the New Warmachine Two-Player Starter Boxes and two versions of Are You the Cultist. What a time we live in.

And canny gamers might also see the late-great Prince’s favourite game in the list as well. And no, it isn’t Nothing Compares 2 Hordes.

Star Trek Attack Wing: Corbomite Maneuver OP

The Corbomite Maneuver

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek Attack Wing: Corbomite Maneuver OP event on Wednesday August 24th at 6:30pm. Entry for the event is $5.00. We hope to start games at 6:30 sharp so please show up early and have your fleet list prepared.

While mapping an unexplored region of space, an unidentified object approaches your fleet at light speed, but it slows down as it nears your ships. As you attempt to move away from it, it follows your every move and won’t let you escape. You determine that it is a space buoy and quickly learn that it is emitting a radiation that is harmful to your ships. You must find a way to escape it or destroy it.

Suddenly, you are set upon by an enemy fleet. The enemy ships seem to have the same problems with the buoy. Will your fleet survive the deadly radiation as well as the attacks from the enemy fleet?

Players will need a 120 SP fleet built according to the current fleet building rules. We will not be using a Blind Booster for this event.

The prize kit for the event includes:

  • Three (3) Limited Edition I.R.W. Rateg/Romulan Bird-of-Prey Prize Card Packs
  • Ten (10) Condition Alert Limited Edition Resource and Reference Card Participation Prizes

Guild Ball only requires 6 miniatures per team and is played on a 3′ x 3′ area with limited terrain making it an accessible game for people new to tabletop miniatures.
