Continued from the Jan 16th, 2016 GameNight thread.


So I found this awesome stats site:
http://x.gray.org/sentinels-of-the-multiverse-difficulty-scores.html

It allows you to build an accurately predicted difficulty level using actual games played data.

And here is a cool site for printable play aids:

I already use a HP tracker like this, but I kind a like his better so I might whip one up since it has cool counters.

Regarding the 6v2 6player option, it sounds pretty awesome, but I think it would be best with experienced players. Lots to keep track of.

Don't bother with the sidekick app, unless you want to slow the game down terribly

I got an Android app for my tablet for Sentinels that is great for exactly what we were talking about (haven't checked for an iOS version yet).  You pre-configure what expansion you have, then you pick difficulty based on estimated percent chance to win and it pops out an appropriate list of Heroes/Villain/Environment.  It even allows you to pre-select your favorite heroes, instead of randomizing them and then tries to get a difficulty match with Villain/environment.

Also, did you see that Villains Of The Multiverse is available for pre-order?

You need Vengeance for it, which I don't have but you might.

Speaking of Sentinels, there is an auction over on BGG that is in Cleveland.  There is a Sentinels lot that has a lot of the mini-expansions and so far the bidding is worth it just for them.  Maybe the base set can also be cannibalized for parts for stuff you might have wear on.  With local pickup it can be a sweet deal.

(I'm bidding on Alien Frontiers, If I get it and you win something I could pick it up for you, the dude running it doesn't live too far from me, I've done his auctions in the past).

Looks like Alien Frontiers is more than I am willing to pay at this time, but I have a couple other low bids in. If you are interested in the Sentinels lot, but don't have a BGG account, I could bid for you as an alternative.

There is now a kickstarter for the final SotM expansion:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gtgames/sentinels-of-the-multiverse-oblivaeon

EDIT: Wow, they are already so far over their goal it has TONS of stretch goals unlocked. Now I might actually go for the basic package. I'm tempted to go for the next higher one and get all the variant hero cards also.

In that auction that is ending today the following is sitting at an $18 bid (which is an awesome price):

Sentinels of the Multiverse
Sentinels of the Multiverse: Ambuscade Villain Character
Sentinels of the Multiverse: Miss Information Villain Character
Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Final Wasteland Environment
Sentinels of the Multiverse: Silver Gulch, 1883 Environment
Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Scholar Hero Character
Sentinels of the Multiverse: Unity Hero Character
Oversized villain cards

I upped my bid on Alien Frontiers, so I might still get it.
