If you pull yourself away from watching Chelsea Carey and Team Alberta fight it out at the Scottie Tournament of Hearts today (you do have tickets right?) then we have all sorts of wonderful new games and gewgaws to grab your imagination here at The Sentry Box.
Star Realms Colony Wars by White Wizard Games
The newly-discovered outer worlds, with their rich, untapped resources, are tempting targets for those seeking to expand their power. Now, the scramble for control of these unclaimed territories begins.
Designed by Hall of Famers Rob Dougherty and Darwin Kastle, Colony Wars can be played as a stand-alone 2 player game or combined with the original Star Realms Deckbuilding Game to support an additional 1-2 players. This box contains a complete 2 player game with rules and 128 cards, including an all new 80 card trade deck.
It is difficult to believe but we are actually still receiving stock on Festivus. I thought it was a Stat Holiday by now. Despite the solemnity of this day, the UPS truck still stopped off and gave us a trove of fun and exciting goodies. No Nanaimo Bars though.
All Things Terrible The Lost Charter Expansion by Pleasant Company Games
Ancient Terrible Things: The Lost Charter is a travel expansion pack for the pulp horror dice game, Ancient Terrible Things. The expansion includes 54 new, unique cards, including Encounters, Achievements, Feat and Swag, travel-ready Location cards, Character Curses, three new Revelation dice, a 5th playable character and a full colour rulebook with details of travel set-up, new card effects and rules for solo play and a 5-player game. Additionally, the expansion comes in a compact travel-friendly box with a raised dice-roller platform.
It is Thursday, the snow is gone (again) so what better time to come down to The Sentry Box and check out our new arrivals.
DC Comics Deck-building Game Crossover Pack #1: JSA by Cryptozoic Games
Crossover Pack #1 features the Justice Society of America, usually known simply as the JSA. These classic Super Heroes have been around for a long time and often claim top talent authors and artists, such as the world-famous Alex Ross! You will find several pieces of his work in this very set. Their stories continue to this day and feature characters extremely important to the DC lore, such as Doctor Fate and Power Girl.
Naturally, these Super Heroes will be fighting against their own stable of classic Super-Villains, such as Solomon Grundy, Eclipso, and Ultra-Humanite! The JSA flavor continues with some of the Super Heroes’ own abilities added to the main deck: Mystic Bolts and T-Spheres.
