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!
