    Board Game Spotlight: Sentinels of the Multiverse

    sentinels-of-the-multiverse

    In another of our regular board game spotlights, Zatu reclines on the sofabed, ready meal resting on its ever-growing gut, daytime TV carving away at its mushy frontal lobe. Nestled between the cushions, Sentinels of the Multiverse: Enhanced Edition, the 2011 release from publisher Greater Than Games and designers Christopher Badell, Paul Bender and Adam Rebottaro.

    The Game

    Sentinels of the Multiverse is a game about good and evil, right and wrong, justice and injustice, sweet and sour, benson and hedges. The world is under threat from any number of villains: mad scientists, aliens, robots, barons, and 1-5 players must band together (if they exceed 1, obviously; if not they just band) to defeat whatever evil that game may bring.

    It’s a card game with a comic book hero theme, in which a selection of hero decks can by pitted against the various villain decks.

    This core set includes ten heroes, four villains and four environments for endless combinations of scenarios. The ‘villains’ essentially play themselves. Each has their own deck and a set of instructions outlining how they act on their turn. Same goes for the chosen environment. Players use their hero decks to respond to whatever the surroundings or chosen megalomaniac throws at them.

    If their health is reduced to zero, they die and lose like in life. If they manage to thwart the villain, they win.

    Gameplay itself is simple. Each turn, players play a card from their hand, use a power on a card in play, and draw another. The game doesn’t reach its bitter end until the heroes or the villain are all the way dead.

    The Publisher

    Greater Than Games were founded in 2011 by designers Christopher Badell, Paul Bender and Adam Rebottaro. In 2015 they merged with Dice Hate Me Games, and now publish under three different brands.

    Popular titles include the above, the Sentinel Tactics series and Galactic Strike Force.

    The Designers

    Badell, Bender and Rebottaro are the aforementioned founders of Greater Than Games. Badell is a writer and the design director at GTG; Bender worked on a web start up before becoming GTG’s operations manager; and Adam Rebottaro is an artist, responsible for all the artwork of Sentinels of the Multiverse.

    I purchased a board game and when it arrived I discovered that there were some pieces missing. The game was sealed so not Zatu’s fault. I have returned for a full refund. Great service.
