A Store Full Of Stuff

Hey PI-Fans,

I hope you like games, because we’ve got games. We’ve loaded the shelves with a bevy of titles (because like you, we’re gamers and we like games).

Here’s some of the new stuff.

Terraforming Mars: Venus Next, has players building flying cities and making the atmosphere more hospitable on the deadly planet Venus as part of the World Government’s choice to also fund the terraforming of Venus. With 50 new project cards and additional corporations added, with a special focus on how to make Venus habitable. With the new floater resource, a new milestone, a new award, a new tag, and a new terraforming parameter, players are given more paths to victory and an even more varied play.

Food Truck Champion is a game in which each person plays the owner of a new food truck out to make a name for itself. You will hire staff, cook food and please customers to earn awards and popularity. At the end of the day the food truck with the most popularity wins! At the start of the game, each food truck has a small fridge, a narrow plating area, and limited room for staff. Each completed order gives you a popularity token worth victory points and it allows you to expand one of the areas of your truck, or even expand the card limit in your hand.

Favelas is a tile-laying game about the beautification of the iconic favelas of Rio de Janeiro! These stacked and ever-evolving neighborhoods are home to many people who stand to benefit greatly from this infusion of money, modernization, and beauty. The bad news is that the council who will approve the funding is fickle and constantly coming back with notes which alter the value of the colors that are used in this beautification. Played over three rounds, this fast-moving Euro-style game will keep people watching for the majorities their opponents are going for — and which colors are being devalued or not.

Back Online

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s back to business as usual, for us. And for us, we’re in the business of bringing you awesome games.

So, kick back, relax and crack open a few new boxes with us to get at the shiny.

Be the one who knocks. Breaking Bad: The Board Game propels you into the acclaimed TV series – as a criminal, race to be the first to produce Blue Sky and sell the required quantity necessary or a DEA Agent working to raid, sieze and shut down the labs peddling drugs before  the criminals flood the market.

Paramedics: CLEAR! is an intense, competitive game for 1-4 players. Race against the clock to collect medical supplies, stabilize patients and rush them to the hospital. A free companion app timer limits player turns to 60 seconds and less as critical calls flood in and players must decide who to save, and who they CAN save in a game of high tension triage.

Five Cucumbers is a trick-taking game with the goal of NOT winning the last trick! It’s not easy. You have two choices on your turn: Take over a trick by playing a equal or higher card or drop your lowest card. It is not enough to keep a low card in your hand for the last trick as you will also need some high cards for taking over key tricks. Whoever fails to do so collects Cucumbers with the more cucumbers a player has, the closer they are to elimination.

In CVlizations, you take the role of a leader of a tribe, and you are charged with the task of “writing” its CV (Curriculum Vitae – résumé). To do so, you choose which orders to give and which inventions, tools, buildings and ideologies to develop. Strategize and manage your actions and ride on the actions of others to benefit yourself.  The happiness of your people depends on you.

Compete to build palaces, torii, and their buildings in the land of Yamatai. Players must weigh the cost of collecting more resources versus their placement in the turn order. Collect resources by expanding your shipping route and build more structures and hire specialists as you colonize the area.

Troubles a-brewin’! It’s exam time at School of Sorcery, and the mischievous witches have crafted their strongest potions and hexes to win the coveted Witches Cup. Witching Hour is a card game in which players compete over three rounds to control the Witches Cup. Armed with enchanted objects, they attack, defend, and use specialty abilities to hex their rivals. The player with the fewest points at the end wins the Cup.

The raid is over, and the victorious Vikings gather in the chieftain’s tent to divide the loot! Spoils of War is a fast-paced and exciting game of bidding and wagering for 3-5 players. Each round, players roll their dice, then cleverly bluff and bet to outwit their fellow Vikings. The winners of each round get to claim fantastic treasures to add to their collection! With lots of twists and surprises, no one knows who will win until the last treasure is claimed and the spoils are counted!

In the Omens of the Pharaoh expansion for Elder Sign, the investigators will discover that there are some mysteries best left buried. The Lightless Pyramid game mode lets the investigators travel back and forth between Cairo and Dashur to gather supplies and gain special gameplay advantages by advancing the party’s Expedition. Gather powerful Relics to bolster your chances of stopping Nephren-Ka and explore Hidden Chambers to reveal the powerful Elder Signs that you’ll need to stop the rise of the Ancient One!

Oddly Hungry

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been one of those days. The manager has been wandering around the store wearing a Tricorn. We’re concerned about his stability.

Send help…

Meanwhile. Ignoring him for a moment. We’re hard at work keeping the shelves loaded with new games.

Use the freshest, tastiest ingredients to make the biggest, most mouthwatering, gourmet burgers around. Satisfy your customers to earn money, upgrade your restaurant, and become the best burger restaurant in town. Players take turns to purchase ingredients from the market, assemble burgers, the Burger Up! phase where players may score their burgers if they satisfy an order.  A bonus is awarded to the Chef who served the most burgers in the endgame and then the winner is determined, based on who has earned the most.

Fluxx turns 21, and Looney Labs is  celebrating by publishing Drinking Fluxx! With rules that are always changing, Drinking Fluxx will keep you on your toes and shake up any adult party. Featuring spill proof plastic cards, drink penalties and a wacky and weird variety of  special rules like word cards, Drinking Fluxx  combines the classic gameplay of Fluxx with social drinking.

Face your opponent in a pattern-matching duel that will push your reflexes to the limit. Break out your claws and cunning and see who’s left standing after this furry face off. Kitten Klash is a 2-player game of pattern matching and reflexes. Players continuously lay out cards in two rows of three opposing stacks, keeping an eye peeled for horizontal or vertical color matches. When you spot one, you reach out fast-fast-fast to grab both stacks, then go back to laying out cards until you spot the next match in a frantic attempt to run their opponent out of cards.
