THE SEARCH CONTINUES


Hey PI-Fans,

The Search for Kadath, the first Mythos Pack for the Dream Eater Cycle is now available at Games @ PI as you take a frightful journey across the dreamlands.

Come on down and grab your copy, and don’t forget that the Dream Eater Cycle Promo is currently still open until January.

“Over fertile plains rolling down to the Skai he saw the smoke of cottage chimneys, and on every hand were the hedges and ploughed fields and thatched roofs of a peaceful land.”
   –H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Silver Bullet Solutions

Hey PI-Fans,

As we roll ever towards Christmas, it’s time for a bit of fun with friends and family. For us, this means it’s time for a party spread this week.

Here’s a slew of fast playing party titles, ready to bring some holiday cheer to your game tables.

Your village has been overrun by savage werewolves. To get rid of these fanged fiends faster than the neighboring villages, use your residents’ special abilities and your powerful secret weapon: Silver.

Silver and Silver Bullet are fast and engaging card games with a werewolf twist! Call for a vote when you think you have the fewest werewolves, but be careful; everyone else gets one more turn to save their own village first. Silver and Silver Bullet can be played as a standalone game or combined with Silver Bullet or other Silver decks.

Get ready for an outstanding time, traveling across the brightest eras and countries!

Spyfall: Time Travel is a standalone easy-to-learn party game that features bluffing, suspicion, probing questions, and clever answers. At the start of each round, players receive a secret card informing them of the group’s location, except for one player who receives the spy card instead. The spy doesn’t know where they are, but if they can figure out the location before their cover is blown, they win the round!

The Eight Realms of Warhammer Age of Sigmar form a new battleground for Munchkin players to explore – by which we mean kill monsters and take their stuff, obviously.

It’s an all new Munchkin set with the classic Munchkin experience you know and love. Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar lets you kick down doors, kill monsters, loot the room and level up. All in the God King’s name, of course.

We Do Games

Hey PI-Fans,

We’re into November. You know what to expect.

As we prepare for the onslaught of carols and cheer, there’s still plenty of stuff to fill our shelves as we move into the holiday seasons.

Also…

Dice.

Add to your Sagrada experience with the 5-6 Player Expansion!

You can now enjoy more Sagrada by adding up to 2 extra players! This expansion introduces the Private Dice Pool boards for smooth gameplay for 6 players. The Sagrada 5-6 Player Expansion also includes new private objectives, tools, and window pattern cards to round out your Sagrada games, regardless of whether you’re playing with the expanded player count or not.

Kick your games of One Night off to a greater scope with the One Night Ultimate Bonus Roles pack! These roles can be integrated with any of the games in the One Night Ultimate series by Bézier Games. This box also includes six artifact tokens, as well as two player number tokens.

Shadowrun, Sixth World is the latest edition of one of the most popular role-playing games of all time. In 2080, the world is controlled by all-powerful megacorps that draw on vast hoards of technology and magic to keep the rest of the population under their heels. But some people refuse the seductive lure of corporate safety. These rebels refuse to sell out, and they survive by doing the dirty work no one else will do. They are shadowrunners, and they’re ready for you to join their ranks.

The Big Pile

Hey PI-Fans,

Even as Halloween recede into the distance and we start prepping for X-Mas, we will keep doing what we do.

It’s time for a rollout of new stuff. It’s what we do.

And we’re gonna keep doing it into the Season!

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

Has your game got the blahs? Are your players spending more time thumbing through your book collection than hunting down clues, more energy heckling one another than in crushing their cruel foes? Never fear, o beleaguered Game Masters, for Robin D. Laws is here to help! Know your players! Analyze your system! Build your campaign! Design adventures! Prepare to be spontaneous, and improvise like a fiend! Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced roller of the polyhedrals, the insights in Robin’s Laws of Good Game Mastering will improve your Game Mastering faster than you can say, “Roll for initiative!”

Fireball Island just got a whole lot bigger. There’s just one problem: It’s covered with spiders, and they have a nasty habit of “popping up” all over the place. Use the caves to get to the peninsula. Navigate the chasm to scoop up valuable spider eggs. Stop for a snapshot on the scenic bridge. But watch out! When Vul-Kar starts rumbling, the spiders start jumping! The Spider Springs expansion adds a new location to explore, a new kind of treasure to collect and a new hazard: spiders!

There is a hidden realm outside the world of the waking: a realm of wonder, imagination, and nightmares. After occult author Virgil Gray writes about his adventures in The Dream Lands, you decide to set forth and learn the truth for yourself. What is real, and what is fiction? And what secrets await in the dark, forbidden places beyond the gates of sleep?

In an audacious bid for power, the Cult of the Dragon leads the charge in an unholy campaign to bring Tiamat back to Faerûn. Alongside their dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, they sweep from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. In Tyranny of Dragons, the threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together to fight the cult. Celebrate the rerelease of this classic D&D 5E Adventure with an all new Alternate Art Edition Compilation.’

You arrived too late to stop the loathsome rite, and a monstrous, transdimensional Ancient One tears through reality. As howls and screams cut through the night, there is only one path left for your fearless investigators—hold back the horde long enough to somehow reverse the summoning. Arkham Horror: Final Hour is a fully co-operative, fast-paced board game for one to four players. An endless tide of monsters sweeps across the Miskatonic University campus, and you must hold them back, all while searching desperately for the ritual components you need to put an end to this insanity.

FIVE GREAT GAMES FOR HALLOWEEN!

It’s that time of year again, of spooky scary skeletons and frightfully sweet candy. It’s also the perfect time to try your hand at some thematically appropriate board games. To help you figure out what hair-raising experience you might want, we’ve compiled five of our favourite games for Halloween.

Dead of Winter

It’s a scenario repeated across all forms of zombie media. A survivor is alone in an abandoned convenience store, with valuable supplies needed by his companions in the camp. He doesn’t have enough gas to drive back and the horde is gathering outside. Back at the camp, tensions are rising as people suspect one of the survivors of deliberately sabotaging the defences. With Dead of Winter, you and your friends can play out that scenario.

A game for 2 to 5 players, Dead of Winter sees each player controlling a group of survivors in a frigid zombie apocalypse. Resources are stretched thin and scavenging for supplies is a dangerous job. To top it all off, not every player might have the groups best interest at heart. The game is kept moving by a series of events which progress the story and raise the tension which gets drawn regularly from the ‘Crossroads’ deck.

With a mix of social deduction and resource management, Dead of Winter is perfect for those looking for a cooperative game with a twist.

Arkham Horror

Enter the twisting streets of Arkham in a race against time and eldritch horrors from beyond time.

A fully co-operative game for one to six players, Arkham Horror sees your and your friends taking on the roles of 12 different investigators. Each of which has their own strengths and weaknesses. Face down the elder gods and old ones in a series of different scenarios, each of which shifts and changes the town of Arkham leading to different play experiences.
Whether you love the Cthulhu mythos or aren’t with the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Arkham Horror provides a excellent cooperative experience, with a mix of investigation, puzzle solving, and action to keep all players engaged and excited.

Axis and Allies Zombies

Halloween is admittedly a silly and sometimes gonzo holiday, with as many wacky and fun moments as it has frightening ones. To that, what better game to celebrate than one which takes a serious concept and makes it ridiculous. Axis and Allies Zombies upend the usual slow and strategic gameplay of the series with the introduction of a crazed horde of zombie soldiers.

Not just a simple reskin of the classic strategy game, Axis and Allies Zombies feature streamlined gameplay that makes it a great entry point for players new to the series. It ups the ante as well for experienced players, bringing in all sorts of new toys into the warzones of WW2 to fight the new undead threat. Chainsaw tanks and zombie controlling beams can give a nation the technological edge needed to win the war… or to keep those endless undead hordes away from their capitals.

Bloodborne The Card Game

While the last few games have had you on the back foot, struggling to survive against horrors both cosmic and undead, the next game on our list has you seek them out and hunt them down. Bloodborne The Card Game adapts the punishing gothic action game by Fromsoftware into a fast paced and action-packed card game.

Descend into the Chalice Dungeons and manage your hand of weapons and combos. You’ll need to act fast and use your wits while facing down the beasts of Yharnam. Work with your fellow hunters in this game for three to five players and prove yourself the superior hunter. Be warned however, fall to the monsters and you lose your blood points, possibly setting you back for the rest of the game.

Betrayal at House on the Hill

What better way to cap off this Halloween list than with the most frightening of monsters… your friends. Betrayal at the House on the Hill will see you and anywhere between two to six friends brave a haunted house together. Delve into a decrepit dwelling and face down terrifying foes and challenges. Work together to ensure your survival up until it comes time for one of the players to betray their companions.

With a set of high-quality components, Betrayal at House on the Hill is a highly immersive and suspenseful game. The house itself is highly configurable, ensuring that no two games will go the same way. If you like games of strategy with a hint of social deduction, exploring the haunted grounds of Betrayal at House on the Hill is for you.

THE DREAM EATER CYCLE

Descend through the dream-gate into madness with PI Subscription Program for the latest cycle of the Arkham Horror Card Game.

Pre-purchase the entire Dream-Eaters cycle to ensure you get the packs as they release and receive the Dream-Eaters Deluxe Expansion and all six Mythos Packs from the cycle at a special promotional price of $178.40.*

“… Even Death May Die…”

“They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died. This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R’lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway.”

― H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Dark Tales
