I’m a big fan of Rob Donoghue and a follower of his The Walking Mind blog. So, when I read this post, it didn’t take me long to send off for the Sentinels of the Multiverse cooperative comic book card game by Greater Than Games. And what a great decision that turned out to be! Yesterday my wife and 4 year old daughter and I sat down for our first game and we had a blast. Heroes Wraith, Tachyon and Tempest took on Baron Blade in Megalopolis and narrowly prevented him from destroying the planet with his Terralunar Impulsion Beam, before Absolute Zero, Fanatic and Haka were crushed by Grand Warlord Voss’s Intergalactic Army in the savage land of Insula Primalis. More comic book superhero fun and excitement is sure to follow! I highly recommend this game!
Crone is a tabletop roleplaying card game currently running a campaign on Kickstarter. In the game, mystical and mysterious witches, wizened old women with fearsome reputations and vast magical powers, travel the land, visiting ancient ruins and fighting powerful monsters. Crone uses an easy 3d6 + Skill + Attribure vs. Difficulty Target Number (TN) mechanic for all resolution and combines this with a fast-paced simultaneous card playing approach to initiative. Everyone places their action cards face down on the table and then flips them over together to resolve them. The concept of playing a bunch of crotchety old women with vast magical powers that can shake the very foundations of the earth is in itself worthy of a pledge and you still a few days left to get in on the action.
