Start The Week With Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes

Hey PI-Fans,

Between preorders for the rerelease of the classic Vampire: The Eternal Struggle CCG and the return of Gary Gygax’s old player character to D&D, it’s a week for nostalgia, isn’t it?

As an added bonus, we’ve secured a limited supply of the limited edition cover versions as well. Quantities are limited, so… well… we’ll see how long they last.

Other bits and pieces floating in include Arkham Horror LCG restocks, the Dragonfire expansions people have been clamouring for and restocks for the RPG range.

Good time for a game, I guess.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything new out of the World of Darkness, hasn’t it?

We’re launching preorders for Black Chantry’s Vampire: The Eternal Struggle Keepers of Tradition reprint sets (last seen in print a full decade ago) as well as the all new Lost Kindred expansion, focusing on the minor bloodlines of the Blood Brothers, Gargoyles, Harbingers of Skulls, Salubri antitribu, and Samedi vampire clans.

Keepers of Tradition Reprint Set 1, Keepers of Tradition Reprint Set 2 and Lost Kindred can now be preordered at Games @ PI at a member’s price of $45 per production set. Preorders close on  24th May 2018 and a deposit is required. Delivery subject to manufacturer availability.

Card Lists For Each Set Available Below

Vampire: the Eternal Struggle (or VTES for short) is a multi-player collectable card game based on the award-winning Vampire: the Masquerade role playing game in which players take on the role of ancient vampires known as a Methuselahs. Considered mere legend by many, Methuselahs rule everything from the shadows, engaging in a eons-long Machiavellian conflict that encompasses political, social, and even physical warfare. The struggle is won or lost based on the actions taken by your minions – younger vampires who unknowingly do your bidding. In this way, the game can allow for deep and immersive storytelling as your minions purchase equipment, hire retainers, even suggest legislative changes to vampiric society, all in the service of your dark plots.

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s time to plumb the mysteries of the Hermetic Order of the Silver Twilight, better known as the Silver Twilight Lodge. The new Mansions of Madness expansion “Sanctum of Twilight” shines the spotlight on these shady occultists and their nefarious misdeeds.

Are they friend? Or foe? This is Arkham. Seriously. Why are we even asking?
Well, we’re about to find out, given Sanctum of Twilight releases today. Join Politician Charlie Kane with his skill at glad pandering and Martial Artist Lily Chen with her power of… well… punching things (sometimes also kicking) as they investigate the secrets of the lodge in Arkham’s French District.

With a little luck, maybe they’ll even make it out of this unscathed. Well… Mostly anyway.

Within the lavish rooms of the Silver Twilight Lodge, the most influential citizens of Arkham gather to forge business alliances, plan parades, and lobby politicians. In secret, they also meet to enact forbidden rituals with dark consequences. The poor souls who discover this truth often vanish, never to be seen again.

Sanctum of Twilight is an expansion for Mansions of Madness Second Edition that unites two new investigators against the Order of the Silver Twilight in two thrilling scenarios. With new spells, items, mechanics, and a new monster, this expansion immerses players in the Arkham Files universe as they confront the dangers threatening Arkham from within.




Russian About

Hey PI-Fans,

You know its going to be an entertaining week when Monday attempts to kill you with a fern. Ask me about it sometime.

On the topic of different kind of entertaining, we have games. Games are good. Games will never fall out of trees and attempt to crush you. Ahem…

Back on topic.

There’s a new Smash Up set in town: That 70s Expansion unleashes  Truckers, Disco, Vigilantes and Kung Fu Fighters into your every growing Smash Up collection. Meanwhile both Scythe and Terraforming Mars have come trundling back in as well with their own slew of expansion (‘Hellas and Elysium’ and ‘Venus Next’ for Terraforming Mars and ‘Invaders From Afar’ and ‘The Wind Gambit’ for Scythe). We’ve also got the Disciples of the Void expansion for Legend of the Five Rings. And last but not least… anyone who wants to boldly go will want to check out the Star Trek Role Playing Game.

So yeah. Hopefully reality’s done with attempting to kill me for the week and I can get back to my job of purveying awesome games.

Vlka Fenryka???? Wait. What?

“The best way to defeat a Space Wolf is to wolf his wolf. You must be careful, though, because if the Space Wolf wolfs your wolf first, then your wolf is wolfed.”

– Attributed to Wolf Lord Egil Ironwolf, On the Intricacies of Tactical Wolffare



Murder Servitors Have Been Dispatched







From the frozen world of Fenris, the Space Wolves sail out across the Sea of Stars, seeking enemies to vanquish and worlds to save. Proud and noble savages, the Space Wolves eschew the teachings of the Codex Astartes in favour of the traditions laid down by their Primarch Leman Russ – their armies filled with giant wolves, lone heroes and skyborne longships. Spurred on by the return of a living legend, the Space Wolves stand as living proof that even in the dark future there can still be heroes.

The Iron Wolves Cometh
The ponderous Leman Russ is generally only used by the Astra Militarum, being deemed too slow for the lightning strikes favored by the Adeptus Astartes. Yet even this honoured tank finds its place in the armoury of the Sons of Russ and their iconoclastic ways of war. Where even the lethal Predator and Vindicator packs of the Iron Wolves struggle, the battle tanks named for their Primarch grind forward inexorably, guns scything through the serried ranks of foe as they shrug off desperate return fire to crush the dead and dying beneath adamantine tracks.

A New Saga of Heroes
Lieutenants act as the right hands of the Wolf Lords by providing flexibility and helping to direct their battle-brothers in engagements. Great Companies are often split into 2 Demi-companies, each of which falls under the command of a Lieutenant who leads his brothers unflinchingly into battle. Space Wolves Lieutenants are presented the mantle of leadership by the personal recommendation of the Wolf Lords, and these aspiring heroes lead the packs to glory, eager to forge their own growing saga into a personal tale of heroism.

Death From Afar
The Long Fangs form a cadre of veterans, hoary with age, proud and wise. Ensconced within the armoured fury of the mighty Centurion armour, these long-range specialists pound enemy positions with salvos of heavy weapons fire. Standing resolute against the worst the foe can throw against them, the Long Fangs exact disproportionate retribution  with weapons of their own, pulping infantry with unending streams of bolter fire and reducing enemy armour to burning pyres with deadly precise lascannon shots.  Even should the fighting turn to the press of melee, these cagey veterans are far from helpless, the bulk of their armor smashing those who thought them defenceless to the ground to be trampled underfoot.



COMING SOON????Check the Calender Date.

– Space Wolves are rebuilding slowly after Wrath of Magnus, hampered by significant population losses on Fenris.

– Wolves now have Primaris Great Companies. 13th through 16th Companies are exclusively Primaris. Mixed squads are filling ranks in other depleted Companies.
(13th Company re-instituted at Guilliman’s orders)

Wolf Priests still around. Space Wolves also get Primaris Chaplains and Primaris Apothecaries who are responsible for policing Wulfen mutation (Disciplinary Officer icon on Shoulder Pad)

– Initial joyous reunion now leading to internal suspicions. The Wolves starting to suspect Guilliman means to slowly bring them to compliance. New Primaris Wolf Lords not getting along with Logan and the Old Guard. Chaplains and Apothecaries not helping.

– The Boss is back somehow but not entirely lucid. Prone to bouts of uncontrolled savagery. Unexplained. Read the Codex. Suspicious of Guilliman’s true intentions/identity?. Claims he ‘reeks of duplicity‘. “Not the Brother I once knew.” Not happy with the current state of the Wolves either. Cold to Bjorn who he blames for not leading them properly.

Wacky Races

Hey PI-Fans,

We know you like games. We like games too. So, if you’ve been waiting for the triumphant return of Sushi Go and Go Nuts For Donuts!

On top of that, there’s an all new edition of the modern classic Tiki Topple, as well as Steampunk Rally and Magic Maze to contend with! So we might as well get in some gaming this week.

After being stripped of all their possessions, a mage, a warrior, an elf, and a dwarf are forced to go rob the local shopping mall for all the equipment necessary for their next adventure. Magic Maze is a real-time, cooperative game. Each player can control any hero in order to make that hero perform a very specific action, to which the other players do not have access: Move north, explore a new area, ride an escalator… If all of the heroes succeed in leaving the shopping mall in the limited time allotted for the game, each having stolen a very specific item, then everyone wins together.

Welcome to Tiki Island, home to nine colorful carvings all competing to be the top Polynesian Idol! In the fast-paced game Tiki Topple, players try to maneuver your secret tikis to the top of the line by playing the right combination of action cards. Use a Tiki Up card to move a tiki ahead in line. Tiki Topple sends opponents’ tikis tumbling to the back of the pack. But watch out for the sneaky Tiki Toast cards, which knock your tikis off the board! Score the most points and call yourself the Tiki Master.

Steampunk Rally is a strategy game that incorporates steampunk as more than just a bit of chrome. Using a unique dice-placement mechanism, players take on the roles of famous inventors from the turn of the last century like Nikola Tesla and Marie Curie, constructing fantastical contraptions that make use of steam, heat and electricity in an attempt to win a no-holds-barred race through the Swiss alps. Each round starts with a card draft in which players carefully select machine parts to add to their invention and one-shot boost cards to aid them or hinder opponents.
