Monday Supplies

Hey PI-Fans

It’s the start of the working week. Since games are work for us, that means its also time to fill our shelves with games.

We launched A Song of Ice and Fire: The Miniatures Game last week and we’ve just topped up the shelves. Also new in is another wave of preprimed WizKids RPG miniatures and more Dungeon Heist for the RPG players.

And there’s board games. New Smash Up. More Smash Up. And plenty of other cool stuff as well.

As the mega corporations are getting ready to start the terraforming process, you now have the chance to make those early choices that will come to define your corporation and set the course for the future history of Mars! Terraforming Mars: Prelude introduces Prelude cards that jumpstart the terraforming process, or boost your corporation engine. In addition it introduces a batch of new corporations and projects to further expand the Terraforming Mars experience.

As the Dragon Castle crumbles, opportunistic lords seek to lure people to their realm. In Dragon Castle, you take on the role of one of the lords. You will have to use all of your cunning to build a castle that will inspire people to move to your realm. Each turn, you can collect tiles from the ruins and add them to your construction. As you place sets of the same type of tiles together, you’ll be able to consolidate them, earning points and allowing for the addition of Shrines.

Smash Up has turned the asylum over to the inmates yet again! After the success of It’s Your Fault, we decided to let the fans choose the factions that would make up the latest set of Smash Up, and they went for some powerful choices! In Oops, You Did It Again, a huge field was whittled down to the top four, and here they are: Cowboys call out opposing minions for shootouts, Samurai face their noble end in battle to bring glory to their player, Ancient Egyptians bury secrets deep in the sands, while the Vikings… well they just take other people’s stuff!

And Lo… The Big Geeky Boxes Were Filled, and the Cry Went Out: We Need A Bigger Box! This is the next evolution in Smash Up Storage. It’s bigger. It’s geekier. It’s still a box. The Bigger Geekier Box has four large rows for storing all of your Smash Up cards, lots of foam bricks for stable storage, a closable token holder, and the all-new Smash Up Comprehensive Rulebook. It also contains the Geeks faction, and the All-Stars faction!

Supernatural

Hey PI-Fans,

Some of you may remember the seminal goth-punk RPG Vampire: The Masquerade. If you’ve missed preening like a Toreador or skulking like a Nosferatu or just letting out your inner Brujah and being angry at life, the universe and everything…

Well… it’s back from torpor.

And if you didn’t understand a word of that, don’t worry. We’ve got board games too.

As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power – and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there. Spirit Island is a cooperative game about defending your island home from colonizing Invaders. Players are different spirits of the land, each with its own unique elemental powers. The islanders fight back against the Invaders when attacked, and lend the spirits some other aid, but may not always do so exactly as you’d hoped.

Stuffed Fables is an unusual adventure game in which players take on the roles of brave stuffies seeking to save the child they love from a scheming, evil mastermind. Make daring melee attacks, leap across conveyor belts, or even steer a racing wagon down a peril-filled hill. The game delivers a thrilling narrative driven by player choices. Players explore a world of wonder and danger, unlocking curious discoveries. The chapters of Stuffed Fables explore the many milestones of a child’s life, creating a memorable tale ideal for families, as well as groups of adults who haven’t forgotten their childlike sense of wonder.

Vampire: The Masquerade is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror. You are a vampire, struggling for survival, supremacy, and your own fading humanity—afraid of what you are capable of, and fearful of the inhuman conspiracies that surround you. As a vampire you suffer the pangs of the Hunger, the relentless and terrible thirst for human blood. If you refuse to deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor’s edge every night. Dark designs, bitter enemies, and strange allies await you in this World of Darkness.
