The Cauldron - Lady of the Wood hero deck
by Robin F.
Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/18/2019 19:40:41
The Cauldron - Lady of the Wood 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 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

Publisher: P.D. Magnus
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

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
by Jeff P.
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...

Night Witches - Nachthexen Cards

Night Witches - Nachthexen Cards These are a fantastic addition. I admit I didn't see use for all of the cards contained, but those I did became essential. The pilot cards changed things up with the NPCs, where the group suddenly had to deal with them as people instead of simply being narrative hit points when they're on a mission #RIPDasha. The squadron leader being able to hand out cards to show who's assigned to which plane makes a nice physical element to the briefings. I didn't bother printing the medal cards as they're represented on the sheet and the oaths can be read from the book itself, but the rest are great....

Night Witches This is the closest to an HBO show that I've experienced in an RPG, and it's been close before. My group are on a break from it just because our emotional stamina can only take so much, but we can't wait to get back into it.

The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi
by Darrell C.
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. ...

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck The deck is beautiful and feels nice in the hands. It's the perfect deck to accompy the book Dugeon Solitaire: Labryinth of Souls. When coupled with the book, you have tons of ways to enjoy and play this game! So far, I've played Dugeon Solitaire: Tomb of the Four Kings (Basic Game). Labryinth of Souls (Both Expert and Advanced), The Cartomancy varaition which I found to be amazing! So amazing in fact that it rekindled my love of tarot cards that I had in my youth. I'm glad I still kept all my old books on the subject! Lastly, I am currently playing Campaign Mode in Labryinth of Souls, which in my humble opinion is worth the price of the book and deck combined! My character's name is David the Hop and just upgraded from the Rank of a Fool to a Robber. He also choose to become a Ranger, which will come in handy for those pesky mazes! Each delve that I've done so far is very tense as it should be! I can't say enough good about this game! The future of David the ...
