One of Those Weeks

Hey PI-Fans,

We’re into August now. I would make an joke about our August selection of games, but I won’t, mostly because my staff would kill me.

Instead let’s focus on the cool stuff.

Be your focus on board games, RPGs or miniatures, there’s plenty floating around out there and with a long weekend rolling around, it looks like a good time to get in some gaming. (Not that there was ever a bad time to get in some gaming.

We’ve restocked the ‘Tiny Epic’ range of titles, got in more Who Should We Eat, loaded up on Jaipur, Dominion and Pandemic. Then there’s more Catan, Splendor and Azul. That covers the classics, but we aren’t done by a long shot.

Here’s the new stuff.

You are the mayor of a Tiny Town in the forest in which the smaller creatures of the woods have created a civilization hidden away from predators. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. Cleverly plan and construct a thriving town, and don’t let it fill up with wasted resources! Whoever builds the most prosperous tiny town wins!

Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation, mixing an app, a board game and a touch of Virtual Reality. With the same physical components (board, locations, characters and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarios and solve as many different crime stories. Players start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal being to catch the killer of the current case in the shortest short time possible.

Toeshambo is a fast and strategic mash-up card game where you’re playing Tic-Tac-Toe with cards, but the Xs and Os have been replaced with Rock, Paper, & Scissor! If your opponent is blocking your three in a row of Rocks, Papers or Scissors, you can play over their card if your card beats it, Rock-Paper-Scissor style.

The ocean world of Charybdion seethes with discontent and a growing sense of danger.

The first published adventure module for the Warhammer 40,000 Wrath & Glory RPG, Dark Tides is an anthology of five linked adventures that bringyour heroes face-to-face with the dangerous villains responsible for Charybdion’s troubles. Can your heroes confront the vile forces spreading insanity and corruption?

Somewhere out there beyond the cordons, beyond the fields and marshes, abandoned machines roamed like stray dogs. They wandered about impatiently, restless in the new wind sweeping through the country. They smelled something in the air, something unfamiliar.

Simon Stålenhag’s paintings of Swedish retro futuristic suburbia, populated by fantastic machines and strange creatures, have won global acclaim. The award-winning Tales from the Loop Roleplaying Game was released in 2017 and let you experience this amazing world first hand. Now you can return to the Loop in this standalone sequel game that continues the story into the 1990s. But remember – this time you can die.

The Expanse Roleplaying Game brings James S.A. Corey’s award-winning series of science fiction novels to the tabletop. Using the Adventure Game Engine (AGE) rules that power Green Ronin’s Fantasy AGE, Blue Rose, and Modern AGE RPGs, The Expanse takes players to a far-future solar system where humanity is divided: Martians, Belters, and the people of old Earth struggle for political power and resources, but older, alien, forces are stirring in the universe, and human history is about to take an unexpected new turn.
