Sentient Unboxing, a cyberpunk dice-manipulation and card drafting board game from J. Alex Kevern

A look at what you get in the box for the boardgame Sentient from Renegade Game Studios. In Sentient you build a robot factory through dice manipulation and card drafting.

This game was designed by J. Alex Kevern, the designer of two games I really love, World’s Fair 1893 and Gold West.


A look inside the Sentient box:

Description from the publisher:

The next great technological revolution is here. Sentient robots for information, transportation, industry — all at our fingertips. Building them is now the easy part. Programming them has proven to be more complicated. A handful of companies have emerged claiming to pull it off, but only one will win out. Your mission is clear: Procure valuable bots and plug them into your network. They’ll have an effect on your systems. Anticipate it correctly, program your bots effectively, and attract the right investors to win and lead the sentient revolution.

In Sentient, players are tasked with choosing from available robots to program in their factory. Each robot that is added modifies your board and attracts the interest of investors for your company. Program your bots efficiently and collect the support of your patrons to build the most formidable operation.


Sentient is a somewhat older game, from 2017, that I missed when it came out. What older games have you felt like you missed out on and decided to check out long after they were published? Let us know in the comments below!
