Shadows of Brimstone! (re)WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

@Sir Gamesalot (The Anti-Paladin)

Guardian Chronicles has some very interesting card play power mechanics and ‘experience’ build with the heroes, but unfortunately the execution is trapped on base raid tiles liken unto an extremely dilute Descent. (Although a superhero base raid dungeon crawl would be extremely interesting if there was something to do aside from walk down tight corridors and punch robots.) I am curious to see if the additional promised material adds anything to the mix when (or if) it arrives. Sentinel Tactics is by far the more dynamic and scenario story variety driven game, but 30 ducats might be a value to curiosity that doesn’t kill any budget cats. 🙂

Shadows of Brimstone is an excellent game, just tons of dice-rolling fun.

I just ordered a starter set for D&D: Attack Wing, and I am pretty excited about that, as well.

@Sir G – I haven’t looked into Guardians’ Chronicles enough to back up your comparison to Sentinel Tactics, but as for the “pricier” part… it’s currently on sale at CSI for $29.99.

A very nice group of new additions to the site. Sadly, I own none of these. I watched the Mars Attacks: The Miniatures Game Kickstarter and drooled just a bit when it came out. It’s only a matter of time (and money) before I pick up a copy of Shadows of Brimstone. On taking a look at Guardians’ Chronicles, it looks like a pricier version of Sentinel Tactics: The Flame of Freedom. This bears further investigation on my part.
