The end has come. A titanic force known as OblivAeon has arisen to bring an end to the Multiverse. Old Heroes and new will join forces to oppose OblivAeon and save each reality from certain doom.
In Sentinels you and up to 4 other players choose a hero to battle again a single Villain in a rotational type co-operative card game. Difficulty is based on which Villain you select and Environment you battle on. This also leads to a staggering number of variations where no game plays the same. You can choose all elements at random, or pick your favorites. There are also variable game modes to go by which make each game even more unique.
Sentinels of the Multiverse was originally released at GenCon 2011 as the brainchild of Christopher Badell, Adam Rebottaro, and Paul Bender of Greater than Games. OblivAeon marks the end of this 5 year series which includes 5 other expansions and several character packs. Greater than Games is the definition of a breakout Indie success story. Since their original release in 2011, GtG has published over 70,000 copies of the Base game. Their previous Kickstarter campaigns have all grown with each successful edition, culminating in the current campaign for OblivAeon which was funded within 30 minutes and broke a staggering $200,000 of funding within 2 hours.
So far the Kickstarter Stretch funds have unlocked the following:
All levels over $39 contain the Game.
13 new Variant Cards
4 New Character mini-Expansions
2 New Environment Deck
Tokens to the Collector’s Case
The Comic Book
There’s still the $1MM Mark which will surely be hit at some point in the next 21 days. This will be the final stretch goal.

Sentinels of the Multiverse is a game that I’ve been playing for years. It’s one that my game group has gotten more mileage out of than any other game, and that includes all of the iterations of D&D combined.
As of this article, Sentinels of the Multiverse: OblivAeon has raised nearly $875,000 in pledges with 21 days left.
