We’re keeping it coming…

We may have announced that we’re scaling back events in our store, but this isn’t the end of the world. Instead the Games @ PI staff are hard at work to battle the blues with a massive stack of goodies.*

Back in stock are sought after titles like Apples to Apples, Munchkin Deluxe, Forbidden Island, Spot It, 7 Wonders Duel, Lifeboat, Catan, Ultimate Werewolf and Jungle Speed: Skwak. On the other hand, if you want to put you deductive skills to the test you can take Silver, Deception: Murder in Hong Kong, Chronicles of Crime and Detective: A Modern Crime Game. Next up are modern classics like Tiny Towns, Silver, Hanabi, Scythe, Sagrada and Spyfall. And if you just want to double down on the irony**, consider picking up a copy of Pandemic and its expansions, or go all the way with Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 and Pandemic Legacy: Season 2!

Alternatively, you might be after something new. We can help with that too.

SCALING BACK OF GAMES @ PI EVENTS DURING DORSCON ORANGE

Hey PI-Fans, no snappy messages this time.

In light of the Ministry of Health’s 2019 novel coronavirus risk assessment being raised to DORSCON Orange, the Games @ PI Management Team has opted to scale back our organised play event during the month of February, in line with Ministry suggestions to cancel or defer non-essential large scale events.

This will affect organised play events in our store, including the upcoming Board Game Events, Star Wars X-Wing Fly-Casual Tournament as well as Dungeons & Dragons Adventurers League Meetups held in our store. Announcements specific to the affected gaming communities will be issued shortly.

So you wanna be the very best…

Hey PI-Fans,

There are two naturally occuring states in the gaming world. The first is ‘Enough Pokemon’. The second is ‘Not Enough Pokemon’.

We’ve seen a bit of a dry spell of late, but it’s Friday, which in addition to being a day to flee the office, also sees the release of the Pokemon: Sword & Shield set for the Pokemon TCG. The release of this set, with its infusion of all new Galar themed Pokemon, trainers and items is likely enough to shift the needle comfortably into ‘Enough Pokemon’.

New Year New… Stuff

Hey PI-Fans,

I’ll have to hand this week off to my staff, since I’ve finally caught that wonderful flu bug going around this New Year period. Don’t bully them.

Of course, the Games @ PI team is not going to let something as small as the General Manager keeling over stop us from doing what we do. You know how it works.

A Thousand Shapes of Horror

NOW AVAILABLE 13/12/19

“If a dead man can transmit his visible or tangible image half across the world, or down the stretch of the centuries, how can it be absurd to suppose that deserted houses are full of queer sentient things, or that old graveyards teem with the terrible, unbodied intelligence of generations?”
  —H. P. Lovecraft, “The Unnamable” 

Delve into the secrets of The House with No Name in A Thousand Shapes of Horror, the second Mythos Pack in The Dream-Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After half of your team has seemingly become trapped in the Dreamlands, you decide to force your way into the realm in your physical body instead of traveling there in your sleep.
