The Cauldron - Tango One hero deck

Date Added: 02/23/2019 11:49:20
The Cauldron - Tango One hero deck Sentinels of the Multiverse is a great game which understands how to make co-op fun. However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why Tango One is a great hero As a quick aside her name consued me at first. I thought it was like "The Tango One" but then I realized it was more like "Come in, Tango 1. Do you copy, over?" Anyway, she's a sniper with psychic powers, which is pretty dang neat but that also means you're going to need to be very patient with this hero. She has a lot of cards that increase the next damage of her attack, but for the first few rounds you'll have to choose between dealing that damage or setting up future plays. Tango One's most unique feature is her Critical cards. On its own the keyword means nothing, but there are cards in her deck that activate some powerful effects if...

However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why The Stranger is a great hero Not gonna lie; this guy is the star of the base set. He's like what I wanted Captain Cosmic to be. Now CC is fine, but all his constructs seem to go out of their way to only be slightly helpful. I don't like to play as him because he doesn't buff characters directly, except for one of his consturcts that reduces damage to a hero. Well, in a weird case of irony, buffing defense is the only thing the Stranger's runes *don't *do. His runes increase hero damage, increase the amount of cards a hero can play in a turn, decrease enemy damage, increase damage done to the enemy! And he can play a surprisingly high number of them in a single turn ...

However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why Malichae is a great hero Malichae is a summoner who plays smaller hero targets that fight back, similar to unity. However while Unity likes to swarm the field with half a dozen or more robots, Malichae only has 4 Djinn, each one with their own dedicated purpose. Bathiel inflicts single damage, Reshiel hits multiple targets, Somael gives damage reduction and Ezael provides healing. This allows Malichae to cover multiple roles for his team depending on what Djinn are out While Malichae only has 4 Djinn, he can also call upon their stronger forms to increase their power. They even have a third super form that only lasts a turn, but have powers that can turn the tabl...

However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why Dendron is a great villain Dendron is probably the easiest of the base set, but that doesn't mean you should take her lightly! She's a minion boss who will play extra cards when she's low on help. Like Baron Blade she flips when she loses all her health, activating stage 2 where she's play several cards on each of her turns. She doesn't do a lot of harm herself, which is fitting as her nemesis is The Stranger, who also doesn't deal direct damage most of the time. And with only 2 cards total in her deck that destorys hero ongoings/equipment, rage quitting will be kept at a minimum Overall Dendron is a solid low level boss who will keep you on your toes and force y...

However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why The Knight is a great hero If Legacy is Superman, then The Knight is Captain America (and they are). But where Legacy is more support and you sometimes attack, The Knight is instead a tank. He has several cards that redirect damage, either to himself or to his armor, and cards that increase his own or his ally's attack and defense. His main cards are his sword and shield, which he has multiple copies of but only 2 can be out at a time, letting you choose between the classic sword and shield, or a great tank with 2 shields or duel-wield swords to deal extra damage His main strength is he can tank very well and recover easily from destruction effects, and has sever...

However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why Lady of the Wood is a great hero Lady of the Wood is a DPS hero, so she'll be dishing out a lot of damage. What makes her unique is that her seasons cards cards reward using certain kinds of damage. For example Spring will heal the Lady for the amount she hits an enemy with, and Winter will let her draw cards every time she hits an enemy with cold damage. Set her up right and she'll be a goddess of damage dealing Pro Tip: she works well with the Stranger and Doc Havoc. Havoc has a card that makes a hero's damage irreducable, but they deal themselves toxic damage in exchange. But with Spring out she can have armor piercing damage with no cost. Likewise the Strange...

double Decktet

Date Added: 02/07/2019 16:37:03
double Decktet My order of five Double Decktets (of both the original Decktet and the Capital Decktet) arrived from DriveThruCards.com. 1. A wonderful surprise: the Capital Decktet is now my favorite Decktet! As much as I have loved the original Decktet for years, the Capital Decktet is even better, in my humble opinion. In my opinion, P.D. Magnus has gotten even better as an artist, and as much as I was captivated by his choice of subjects for the first Decktet, the choice of subjects for the Capital Decktet is even better. The subjects are even more interesting, even more compelling. Lastly, the Aces in the Capital Decktet now each get their own detailed artwork (unlike the original Decktet), and each Ace is stunning! 2. I love the new card back on both decks. The card back is "The Reversal," a new card (card front, that is) in the Capital Decktet. So yes, that individual card (The Reversal) has the same front and back, kinda. This is my favorite card back for the Decktet, ever, by far. 3....

The Cauldron Adrift - Screamachine villain deck
by Jeff P.
Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/05/2019 18:48:25
The Cauldron Adrift - Screamachine villain deck **Screammachine Review:** This villain is actually a 4-member rock band whom you must face, and hopefully, take down before they finishing warming up and really rock out! Mechanically, you have four separate targets, each with around 30 health. Each round a minimum of 1 Guitarist, Vocalist, Bassist, or Drummer card is played from their set list and attached to a specific band member and, when any member has 3 such cards, they flip and upgrade. Cards played from the villain deck also trigger abilities, keyed to Guitarist, Vocalist, Bassist, or Drummer, thus the more “upgrades” a band member has the more harm they cause when triggered. Similarly, when the band is down members (specifically when there are H-2 band members left) they again increase their power, playing more cards and setting off more triggers. While Screammachine has many triggers to track, particularly when Live in Concert is played and all active band member’s abilities are triggered, the way that they slowly ramp up a...

The Cauldron Adrift - Drift hero deck

Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/04/2019 20:57:06
The Cauldron Adrift - Drift hero deck **Drift Review:** Once again, Matt Bishop and Cauldron deliver a unique playstyle for these fan-created heroes. Drift, a character previously seen in the Knight’s deck and promo cards, has time traveling powers, represented by a separate card, called a “Shift Track” in which you track her place/alignment in regards to the past or the future. Many of this hero’s cards have unique abilities that either trigger when she “shifts” in a certain direction, or have powers that differ based on her placement on the track. For example, if Drift is aligned with the past (marked as blue on the track,) she can only use powers marked with a blue diamond. Past-aligned powers tend towards healing, defense, and drawing cards, while future-aligned powers tend almost exclusively to damage dealing or buffing. The deck also has a number of various limited ongoing cards that help her get more mileage out of her time shifts, as well as cards to help you mine your deck a bit for what's missing. Her play sty...

The Cauldron - Quicksilver hero deck
by Jeff P.
Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/04/2019 20:38:35
The Cauldron - Quicksilver hero deck **Quicksilver Review:** After a few games with this character, I’ve really enjoyed the mechanic that makes her unique. Quicksilver plays the role of a high damaging hero who injures herself in order to string together “combo” and “finisher” one-shot cards to deal high amounts of damage to both multiple and individual targets. Obviously, a requirement get the most bang for your buck is getting lots of cards in hand to allow chaining and her base power, “Discard a card. If you do, draw 2 cards,” helps with this. She also has a number of ongoing cards that allow her to mitigate self-damaging behavior and even one that take damage done by her peers, increase it, and sent it back to a villain. Her play style requires hording cards, damaging/healing yourself, followed by episodes of explosive damage dealing. In summary, she’s a unique hero, and a great addition to the multiverse! **General Cauldron Review:** I came late to the Cauldron fan-expansion, but once I found it I picked up all o...

The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi

Publisher: Larcenous Designs, LLC
Date Added: 01/16/2019 10:33:11
The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi This is exactly what I was looking for in order to play Classic Traveller/Cepheus Engine solitaire. I purchased the printed cards as well as the pdf. The printed cards are printed just like playing cards, and the print quality is excellent. Each card is double-sided and easy to read. The color scheme used for the SciFi cards works well for me. The included SciFi Adventure Guide is also very helpful with ideas on how to use the various elements of the card. The examples included in the adventure guide work well on their own, but can be easily modified to fit your needs. The pdf quality is also good; however, I did not want to print and cut out the cards. Self-printing can be done if a person does not want to purchase the printed cards, but I prefer commercially printed cards to doing it myself on cardstock. I'm using the SciFi cards in conjunction with Paul Elliott's SOLO for Cepheus Engine. The combination of the cards with Paul Elliott's SOLO has created an exceptional experien...

FOR US THOUGH, WE FOUND IT TO BE FUN BUT NOT A GAME TO BE PLAYED REGULARLY. MORE LIKE ONCE AND A WHILE. ...
