Review of Sentinels of the Multiverse

I finally had the chance to sit down with my gaming group and play "Sentinels of the Multiverse" from Greater Than Games, one of the games that I purchased at Gen Con.

Today I tried out “Little Dead Riding Hood” from Twilight Creations, a fairy tale themed tile placing board game. We’ve seen some very cool things, and we’ve taken a few pictures.
