“A STRANGE GAME. THE ONLY WINNING MOVE IS NOT TO PLAY.”

Hey PI-Fans,

For more than half a century, people having been flinging atomic payloads at each other in Nuclear War, a black humored game about Global Superpowers and the End Of The World.

And it’s BAAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKK…

So ready your spinners, and load your nukes as the Cold War goes hot in this special edition of Douglas Malewicki’s modern classic.*

* The box also  glows in the dark.

The Weekly Recap – 27/10/17

Hey PI-Fans,

The weekends are going to be rolling around shortly and it’s going to be glorious!

Here’s this week’s lineup.

Designed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic Settler of Catan, Legend of the Sea Robber includes new linked scenarios designed to be strung together to allow for an evolving Catan campaign with actions and developments carrying over to the next game as players delve into the island’s history in a four part campaign.

Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach is a 1-4 player card game based on the award-winning  role-playing game. The players are lords and ladies who hire troops, recruit heroes, and build defenses to fend off fiendish monsters…and their fellow players.  Players may choose to go on dangerous adventures or engage in battles against their fellow players in this tableau city-building game.

Returned to a world scarred by the impact of Pandemic Legacy in the newest Legacy game title. Forage for supplies amidst the cities of the mainland in Pandemic Legacy Season 2, as survivors of past cataclysm explore the abandoned ruins of a world seventy years on.

“Sometimes, shit happens, someone has to deal with it, and who ya gonna call?” Ghostbusters II: The Board Game is a brand new standalone expansion to the cooperative Ghostbusters Board Game, featuring the indomitable boys in grey as they go head-to-head (and slime-to-slime) with Vigo  (Scourge of Carpathia, Sorrow of Moldovia. Also Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy.)

The King in Yellow has come to Arkham, you caught the performance, and now you find yourself drawn into the maddening web of powerful forces and sinister event that seems to surround the mysterious play. Echoes of the Past is the first Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game and draws heavily on the set themes of Composure and Talent.

Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies is an expansion for the Dead of Winter zombie horror survival game, taking the survival mechanics of Dead of Winter to their logical conclusion as two colonies of survivors scrabble over the same set of resources in an all new variant for 4-11 players. Team up and battle for territory as you fight to ensure that your colony of survivors, not theirs, inherits the resources left in a location.

Control the destinies of secretive Darloks, genius Psilons, adaptable humans and many others as you steer a race across this outer space confrontation. Marshal your resources as you seek to balance military confrontation and colonization efforts in a a bid to become the Emperor at the Galactic Council. Will your species triumph in this all new tableau building card game based on the award winning Master of Orion?

After The End

“In 54 years, why don’t we send them this— a picture of this beautiful Earth, with an Eurasia overflowing with green?”

Dear PI-Fans,

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR PANDEMIC LEGACY SEASON 1. WHILE YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE COMPLETED SEASON 1 TO PLAY SEASON 2 IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED PANDEMIC LEGACY SEASON 1, I SUGGEST GRABBING A COPY ANYWAY BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME. 

 

Seventy One years after the catastrophic events of the global plague, we face a devastated globe on the brink of collapse. Much of the globe has gone dark, and while small groups of survivors struggle to keep the world alive, but their efforts are no longer enough. The world needs leaders to rise up and find the way back from the brink of extinction. That task has fallen to you. You must find a way or nobody will. You are humanity’s last chance.

Tomorrow, a small group of us head out into what’s left of the world. We don’t know what we’ll find.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is an epic cooperative game for 2 to 4 players. Unlike most other games, this one is working against you. What’s more, being a Legacy game, the actions you take in Pandemic Legacy will carry over to future games, shaping the board, cards and setups of future games with no two worlds will ever be alike!

This is your game. This is your story.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2
26/10/17

The Inevitable Face (Eaten) Off


Hey PI-Fans,

With the zombie apocalypse upon us,  clearly we’re going to band together to survive this together, right?

Yeah, right.

Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies takes the survival mechanics of Dead of Winter to their logical conclusion as two colonies of survivors scrabble over the same set of resources in an all new variant for 4-11 players.

You know this means war.

And while you’re here, we’ve got our hands on the Dead of Winter Roberta Plum and Kodiak Colby mini expansions, so now’s your chance to add these sought after Survivors to your games of Dead of Winter.

Cow Noises

Hey PI-Fans,

Control the destinies of secretive Darloks, genius Psilons, adaptable humans and many others as you steer a race across this outer space confrontation. Marshal your resources as you seek to balance military confrontation and colonization efforts in a a bid to become the Emperor at the Galactic Council.

Will your species triumph in this all new tableau building card game? Or will you fall by the wayside?

It’s time to head for the stars, with Master of Orion.

 

The Weekly Recap – 21/10/17

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been a solid week of stuff flooding into the stores, so it’s about time for a recap. For those that missed out, here’s a week in the life.

And for those following the shipment mishap – we’ve gotten our Plagueburst Crawlers in finally.

Scale the walls… and the titan itself as the Survey Corp takes the fight to invading Titans in Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, using clever placement and planning to avoid the lumbering moves of the Titan… or play as the lumbering brute itself and smash the irritants before they bring you down in this thematic game of bluff and misdirection.

Take the thematic betrayal of Betrayal at House on the Hill mechanics and meshing them with the fantasy trappings of one of Dungeons & Dragons most iconic cities! Will your band of adventurers survive in a city most commonly associated with Bhaal, the God of Murder? Find out in Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate!

Will you find one of the revered Vestiges of Divergence or perhaps discover part of the Chroma Conclave’s legacy? Can you help the Ashari in their sacred charge to prevent the elemental vortices from overwhelming the world, or will you find yourself embroiled in the machinations of the Clasp? Prepare to visit the vista’s of Matt Mercer’s own campaign, made popular via the Critical Role webseries in the Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting supplement for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

You died. Journey into the Dark Souls universe and dive into a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players. Each time you decide where to go, you will experience a new danger as you explore, with each new location a real risk to your hard-won progress. If you die, then you drop everything as you return to the nearest bonfire.

In Power Grid: The Card Game, the players represent CEOs of mighty power companies producing electricity. Bid for power plants at auctions and supply them with resources. Their income depends on the amount of electricity produced in each round. At the end of the game, the player who produces the most electricity wins the game.

Ghosts Love Candy—everyone knows that! The cruel twist is that they no longer have the physical bodies to enjoy the scrumptious candy they crave. But, on Halloween, the rules are off. Ghosts use this mystical and eerie night to temporarily possess unsuspecting Trick-or-Treaters so they can indulge in as much candy as they can get their invisible hands on. Use your team of ghosts to possess Trick-or-Treaters and gobble up the candy you crave. But be careful! When a Trick-or-Treater eats too much candy they get sick and become your burden if you were the one to push them past their candy limit.

A reprint of a  long unavailable expansion for Marvel Legendary, Marvel Legendary Fantastic Four reintroduces Marvel’s first family to the world of Legendary. Now you can play as fan-favorite Heroes: Thing, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and Silver Surfer as they fend off the new evil Schemes of Masterminds like the world-devouring Galactus!

 

Shadespire was once a city of wonder and magic, a mercantile metropolis whose rulers defied death, to the fury of Nagash. Those adventurers foolish enough to set foot within its walls are trapped, with all hope seemingly lost. Yet not all will accept their fate without a fight… Take the fight to the foe in Warhammer Underworlds: Shadepire, a fast playing tactical  skirmish board game  of warband combat in a ruined city, containing two full warbands for two players!

Prepare to Die

Hi PI-Fans,

Bearer, Seek, Seek, Lest..

Journey into the Dark Souls™ universe and dive into a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players.

With multiple difficulty modes and a high-level of replayability, this is a game designed to be deep enough to satisfy hard-core tabletop gamers whilst remaining accessible to newer players.

Go Beyond Death

Each time you decide where to go, you will experience a new danger as you explore, with each new location a real risk to your hard-won progress. If you die, then you drop everything you have collected and reappear at the nearest bonfire.

Join us on 18th October and try it out for the first time. And together we shall face the Dragon Slayer Ornstein & Executioner Smough or dance with The Dancer of the Boreal Valley or die trying.

Only Embers Remain…

Party On…

Never Split the Party… Unless Someone is the Traitor!

Hey PI-Fans,

Welcome back to Baldur’s Gate, brave adventurers! Welcome back indeed, since Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is now available at Games @ PI.

Take the thematic betrayal of Betrayal at House on the Hill mechanics and meshing them with the fantasy trappings of one of Dungeons & Dragons most iconic cities! Will your band of adventurers survive in a city most commonly associated with Bhaal, the God of Murder?

Can you and your party survive the madness, or will you succumb to the mayhem and put the laughter in slaughter?

Here’s a little piece of Trivia. Despite it’s fame in Computer RPG history, only about a third of the series took place in and around the titular city.
