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.
Description from GTS article:
Sentient is a dice-manipulation game by J. Alex Kevern (World’s Fair
1893, Gold West). As with his other games, Sentient is filled with
smart, simple, and rewarding choices. Each turn involves choosing an
available bot, adding it to your factory, and deciding how to divide
your resources between optimizing your bot and wooing investors. Players
who enjoy a satisfying puzzle will appreciate the difficulty in adding
the chosen bot to their factory. Each slot has a die on either side that
will be modified based on the chosen bot card. But, adding another
adjacent bot the next turn will modify the dice once again. The dice at
the end of the round will determine how efficiently your bots were
programmed and will grant you varying points based on the dice numbers.
You may have everything perfectly sorted out — that is, until the last
bot you choose changes the adjacent dice. Your plan can crumble and
points can easily be lost with an errant decision or wrong choice!
