Many Things Are Going To Die

Hey PI-Fans,

I’m not sure what the theme is for this week. I don’t think there is even a theme. Then again, with this week’s new shiny being ‘The Captain Is Dead: Lockdown‘, ‘Doomseeker‘, ‘Delta Green‘ and ‘Boss Monster: Rise of the Minibosses‘, perhaps the closest thing to a common thread is that things are probably going to die.

Usually in entertaining ways.

No big.

Didn’t want to live forever anyway.

So on to the games.The Captain is Dead: Lockdown is a new standalone episode in the ongoing saga that started with The Captain Is Dead. Despite their brave escape, the crew is once again in grave danger. The hasty repairs on the ship’s jump core made it cut out a few star systems away. Now they find themselves captured by the Alien Empire. The team must escape by stealing a ship, and must once again work as a team to avoid the guards, hack into systems and get away before their jailors take them back to their cells or kill them on the spot.

Looks like there’s a new threat rising in the land of Arcadia: Minibosses! Boss Monster: Rise of the Minibosses is an all new standalone set that can integrate with the previous two Boss Monster Base sets and all previous expansions. As before, players will build up their dungeon  in order to lure in heroes and defeat them before they reach your boss. New mechanisms such as the all new miniboss room cards will power up your dungeon in insidious new ways, and wreak havoc on your opponents’ dungeons.

The Doomseeker card game pits players against one another to see who can die the most glorious death! Players take on the role of a mighty dwarf slayer and wander the old world seeking their doom battling monsters and enemies of their race. Press your luck and challenge the denizens and monsters of the Old World, with each victory bringing you more glory, and ultimately your death can be met at the hands of a truly worthy foe!

Extremely Ex-Scything

Hi PI-Fans,

Okay. The pun was terrible. Doesn’t change the fact that we have Scythe back in stock. Of course, it doesn’t stop there, or I wouldn’t have made the pun in the first place.

Already own Scythe? Time for Rise of Fenris, an all new Scythe expansion built around campaign play for a Scythe style legacy world. Want something lighter? Try My Little Scythe. Yes. My Little Scythe.

Anyway. If you were excited about the new Limited run Marvel Cinematic Universe Core Set for Marvel Legendary that arrived last week, maybe smash things up with Marvel Legendary: World War Hulk.

And D&D: Dragon Heist, and a hefty slab of new Reaper BonesPathfinder Deep Cuts and Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures RPG figurines because we haven’t forgotten the role playing crowd either.

All good? Then maybe you’ll be able to forgive the pun.

In Legendary: World War Hulk, the smartest Heroes in the Marvel universe, the Illuminati, fear Hulk’s raw strength and furious rampages. They conspire to trick Hulk into exile on a distant world.  Players will be able to take on roles as Gladiator Hulk and the Warbound, or as other Heroes trying to hold Hulk and the Warbound back in this expansion, loaded with the Hulk’s new Transform mechanic.

Empires have risen and fallen in the aftermath of the Great War, and Europa stands on the precipice of a new era.  Scythe: The Rise of Fenris, the conclusion to the Scythe expansion trilogy, enables two different options – Campaign play built to revolve around an eight-episode persistent campaign and modules whichcan be used in various combinations to cater to player preferences including a fully cooperative module.

My Little Scythe is a competitive game inspired by the original award winning Scythe, in which each player controls 2 animals embarking upon an adventure in the Kingdom of Pomme. In an effort to be the first to earn  trophies from increasing their friendship and pies, powering up their actions using upgrade tiles, completing quests, learning magic spells, discovering precious resources, delivering gems and apples to Castle Everfree, and perhaps even engaging in a pie fight.

In an all new adventure for Dungeons & Dragons, famed explorer Volothamp Geddarm needs you to complete a simple quest. Thus begins a mad romp through the wards of Waterdeep in Dragon Heist as you uncover a villainous plot involving some of the city’s most influential figures. A grand urban caper awaits you. Pit your skill and bravado against villains the likes of which you’ve never faced before, and let the dragon hunt begin!

TGIF Yet Again

Hey PI-Fans,

What a week it’s been. But the flowers are still standing.
So, the plan is to get back to doing what we do… which is to fire off a slew of new titles to keep you ready for some weekend gaming.

So lets get to it.

Hoist the T.I.M.E Agency flag and ready yourselves to cross the high seas with Brotherhood of the Coast, the seventh T.I.M.E Stories expansion. Four seasoned T.I.M.E agents have been sent on a mission in the Caribbean in the 17th century, but contact has been cut off and and your help is needed to track them down. Rally your motley crew and ready yourselves for anything is possible in the waters that await you.

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of  the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Marvel Legendary: 10th Anniversary deck-building card game core set features star-studded, action-packed, iconic imagery pulled directly from Marvel’s collection of movies. In this game, you are leading fan favorite Marvel Super Heroes like Captain American, Iron Man, and Thor to trounce Super Villains! This limited edition release is 100% compatible with all previous Legendary Marvel releases.

Fluxx is a card game in which the cards themselves determine the current rules of the game. By playing cards, you change numerous aspects of the game: how to draw cards, how to play cards, and even how to win. Jump into the wave of educational Fluxx sets, with a focus on human anatomy, mathematics formulas and chemistry equations in an experience that can be both fun and educational simultaneously.

Mysterious and intriguing temples call for exploration by brave adventurers. Powerful arcane runes were hidden in these ancient magical ruins protected by dark and deadly curses. Only the most courageous and adventurous Curse Breakers may enter the temples, break the dark curses, and bring back the arcane runes for the magic academy for its glorious bounty. In Mystery of the Temples, players take on the role of Curse Breakers, traveling between the wilderness and the temples in order to collect crystals of various colors. Fusing the colorful crystals on the Crystal Grid in the correct order breaks the curse of the temple, and you earn runes and victory points in the process.
