On The Stack

The Law of Shipment Attraction™ strikes. Capable of striking fear into any logistician, a carefully planned staggered series of releases can sometimes turn into a veritable flood.

While our staff stagger around in a blind panic, this is probably a good thing for you, dear customer, since the natural habitat of new stuff is apparently shipping pallets.

Kicking off the flood is a spread of D&D restocks. Limited Edition Alternate Art copies of Eberron – Rising from the Last War, Baldur’s Gate – Descent into Avernus, Ghosts of Saltmarsh and Tyranny of Dragons. Sneaking in with them is a smattering of D&D vs Rick & Morty Starter Sets. Wubba Lubba Dub Dub.

Alternatively, you can take an Arkham day trip with the Dead of Night expansion for Arkham Horror, Path of the Serpent expansion for Mansions of Madness and Murder at the Excelsior Hotel for the Arkham Horror Card Game.

And perched regally on our shelves is a single numbered copy of Tapestry. First come, first served.

Also flooding in are sought after titles like Scythe, Pandemic, This War of Mine, Sushi Go, Tiny Epic Zombies, Tiny Epic Kingdom and Ramen Fury.

Here’s to shipping.

Azul: Beauty in Simplicity

There is a layer of strategy and depth behind the beauty of Azul, the award-winning tile drafting game where players compete to assemble a wall of ceramic tiles.

Simple and easy to learn, Azul takes its inspiration from the tin-glazed ceramic tiles used to decorate palaces in Portugal, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing set of components with a gorgeous glazed art-style.

Setup for some board games can be tedious, requiring the sorting of components and the shuffling of decks. With Azul, this setup is far more straightforward, with five to nine beautiful factory boards placed in the middle, and each player receiving a board of their own. Then, each factory gets filled with four coloured acrylic tiles drawn at random from a fabric bag. Players can take all the tiles of the same colour from a tile, but the excess tiles get placed in the centre of the board.

The game takes place over the course of at least five rounds, with each player taking all tiles of the same colour from either the factory boards or the centre pile until no tiles remain. Chosen tiles are placed in rows on the player’s board, with full rows building tiles on the player’s wall. Each tile placed awards its player with a point, with bonus points obtained by placing adjacent tiles or filling rows. The game ends if, at the end of a round, a player has completed a horizontal row on their wall.

Azul shows its nuances in how it plays. Each tile from a chosen factory which exceeds the amount needed to craft a wall-tile gets placed at the bottom of the board, imposing a penalty to that player’s score.  Pick the right tiles, and you might set off a chain of adjacency bonuses which catapults you to victory, but your friends will be looking to get tiles of their own. The rewards for filling rows and the fact that each row and column only has one of each type of tile means that there is a sense of rising tension, each subsequent round allows for greater point gains but less flexibility.

Azul’s speed of play and surprising depth despite its simplicity make it a perfect game for the family, one with space for replayability, it promises to be a family favourite and deserving of the acclaim it has received.

Well, everybody knows that the bird is the word!

The start of another week brings a massive pile of stock, and the clarion call goes out.

Dungeons & Dragons Players who preordered the alternate art Eberron – Rising from the Last War Limited Edition book from us, your copies are ready for collection. If you missed out on the first wave of orders, we apologize but the first wave is entirely gone.

If you’re after your own copy of the incredibly swank alt art cover, place an order at the store, and we’ll do our absolute best to hook you up with the second wave.

Board Game wise, there’s plenty of titles flooding in for even the most discerning gamer palette.

We’ll kick off our offerings with 2019’s Kennerspiel des Jahres Winner Wingspan for all your bird watching needs. If you’re after something lighter, but no less cerebral, there’s Czech Games Edition’s Letter Jam, a brilliant cooperative deductive word game guaranteed to make you question your own vocabulary. On top of that, the latest set of Richard Garfield’s brilliant card game Keyforge: World’s Collide has trundled into stores.

If you’re after something on the wargaming front, the Baratheon’s have arrived to leave their mark in the Song of Ice and Fire Miniature Game with the Baratheon Starter Set.

On top of that, another pile of sought after titles has arrived with the new stock. Ion: A Compound Building Card Game, Fury of Dracula, Who Should We Eat, Deception: Murder in Hong Kong, Arkham Horror: The Board Game, Talisman, Relic and Onitama are back on our shelves.

THE SEARCH CONTINUES


Hey PI-Fans,

The Search for Kadath, the first Mythos Pack for the Dream Eater Cycle is now available at Games @ PI as you take a frightful journey across the dreamlands.

Come on down and grab your copy, and don’t forget that the Dream Eater Cycle Promo is currently still open until January.

“Over fertile plains rolling down to the Skai he saw the smoke of cottage chimneys, and on every hand were the hedges and ploughed fields and thatched roofs of a peaceful land.”
   –H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Silver Bullet Solutions

Hey PI-Fans,

As we roll ever towards Christmas, it’s time for a bit of fun with friends and family. For us, this means it’s time for a party spread this week.

Here’s a slew of fast playing party titles, ready to bring some holiday cheer to your game tables.

Your village has been overrun by savage werewolves. To get rid of these fanged fiends faster than the neighboring villages, use your residents’ special abilities and your powerful secret weapon: Silver.

Silver and Silver Bullet are fast and engaging card games with a werewolf twist! Call for a vote when you think you have the fewest werewolves, but be careful; everyone else gets one more turn to save their own village first. Silver and Silver Bullet can be played as a standalone game or combined with Silver Bullet or other Silver decks.

Get ready for an outstanding time, traveling across the brightest eras and countries!

Spyfall: Time Travel is a standalone easy-to-learn party game that features bluffing, suspicion, probing questions, and clever answers. At the start of each round, players receive a secret card informing them of the group’s location, except for one player who receives the spy card instead. The spy doesn’t know where they are, but if they can figure out the location before their cover is blown, they win the round!

The Eight Realms of Warhammer Age of Sigmar form a new battleground for Munchkin players to explore – by which we mean kill monsters and take their stuff, obviously.

It’s an all new Munchkin set with the classic Munchkin experience you know and love. Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar lets you kick down doors, kill monsters, loot the room and level up. All in the God King’s name, of course.

Also…

Dice.

Add to your Sagrada experience with the 5-6 Player Expansion!

You can now enjoy more Sagrada by adding up to 2 extra players! This expansion introduces the Private Dice Pool boards for smooth gameplay for 6 players. The Sagrada 5-6 Player Expansion also includes new private objectives, tools, and window pattern cards to round out your Sagrada games, regardless of whether you’re playing with the expanded player count or not.

Shadowrun, Sixth World is the latest edition of one of the most popular role-playing games of all time. In 2080, the world is controlled by all-powerful megacorps that draw on vast hoards of technology and magic to keep the rest of the population under their heels. But some people refuse the seductive lure of corporate safety. These rebels refuse to sell out, and they survive by doing the dirty work no one else will do. They are shadowrunners, and they’re ready for you to join their ranks.
