After waiting oh so very patiently, the Kickstarters from the latest Sentinels of the Multiverse Kickstarter have arrived! Mr. Chomps decided to look over the haul.
This is what many happy future hours of gaming with friends looks like. Especially those friends who are also in our super powers LARP.
Under the lid of the Vengeance box is a teaser for the next expansion.
And Mr. Chomps finally got to meet himself in card format!
Sentinels is one of our favourite boardgames - almost all of our circle of friends has their own copy - just so that we are reasonably sure that there will always be one around if the urge to defeat evil strikes.
In order to challenge my niece (15 y.o) who seems to have it in her head she can not do math we regularly play games that require simple arithmetic. I tutor her in algebra and fully recognize, she gets it, she just lacks a bit of confidence.
This last weekend while celebrating another niece’s first birthday five of us sat down to play 7 Wonders. One of the participants was my 15 y.o. niece’s friend. She kept saying, she only likes Apples to Apples while looking through our mound of games. Anyone who has ever played a game of Apples to Apples with an age gap between participants in the 20+ range knows it’s not that fun. We urged her to give 7 Wonders a try, the game plays fast, if she didn’t like it we could try something else.
Somewhere around the middle of the 2nd age our new participant exclaims, I get it. We see her board go from a lot of 0 point cards and few resources to what looked like a jumbled mess of points… until we tallied the scores. Jumbled was either the fantastic pairing of the best options available or a clever amalgamation of cards.
40 (me) - 40 (sis) - 48 (niece) - 68 (mom) - 71 (friend)… She gets it. If it weren’t a school night and already 8:30 pm we would have played another round.
