We’re Not Dead

I am not dead yet, I can dance and I can sing
I am not dead yet, I can do the Highland Fling
I am not dead yet, No need to go to bed
No need to call the doctor
Cause I’m not yet dead.
He Is Not Yet Dead, Monty Python’s Spamalot


Morning PI-Fans,

If you’ve been following the press, you should be aware that there was a fire in the Midpoint Orchard building. We’re just letting you know that rumors of our demise are highly exaggerated.

We have not been affected and Games @ PI will continue to operate during our regular business hours (12nn to 10pm) as usual.

Hope to see you around.
– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

We Made Stuff Appear

Hey PI-Fans,

Either a shipment came in, or I invoked the magical stock fairies. Regardless, the end result is that I have a store full of product… PRAISE THE MAGICAL STOCK FAIRIES.

Anyway.

We’ve got new stuff in , including expansions for the Game of Thrones LCG, Warhmmer 40K Conquest, expansions for Elder Sign and TIME STORIES and all new titles like Hoax.

Here’s to a great week of gaming, guys.

AIEEEEE… BAWKSES…

Hey PI-Fans,

Occasionally I get buried. This is one of those days. We’ve got a slew of rereleased classics and many more new titles.

Lets go.

Do you enjoy brats, burgers and beers? So do the maids of the Tanto Cuore Oktoberfest deckbuilding game. Hire maids to staff your mansion and leverage upon their abilities to help yourself and hinder your opponents in this standalone expansion to the popular Tanto Cuore card game.

When Balloon Cup disappeared over the horizon, Stephen Glenn gave us Pinata –  a game of whacking pinatas and grabbing candy. Grab sets of different coloured candy tokens that in a race to earn medals. Beat your opponent to three medals and win as you rush to snag the most candy while ruining your opponent’s plans.

In Friese’s Landlord you are all ruthless landlords trying to earn as much money as you can. All sorts of tenants move into your houses: the family, a man with a dog, sometimes even odd ones. All tenants dream of getting a premium apartment, but most often you offer them low rent flats. But beware of squatters! With the help of various action cards you try to get essential advantages or defend yourself against mean attacks, at the expense of your fellow players if necessary – or even the poor tenants!

It’s 1947 and the war is still going. Paolo Parente’s DUST Adventures is a role playing game set in the weird war era of the DUST wargame universe. Terrible developments have altered the face of war forever and now now the terrible tramp of Axis Walkers threatens to snuff the remaining Allied nations off the face of the Earth. So load your M1 or strap into your M3. It’s going to be a wild ride.

Villains of the Multiverse is a collection of ten super-powered villains for Sentinels of the Multiverse, and rather than being standalone villains, they work as part of a team of villains in the play style introduced in Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance to group villains together as a team fighting against the hero team. Additionally, Villains of the Multiverse includes four new environments that can be used in any Sentinels of the Multiverse game.

A Week In Review

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s the end of another work week, and this one has been a doozy. Like you, we’re looking forward to the weekend, with Dzaki’s Star Wars Armada Community Tournament. coming up.

Fans of Netrunner should also be pleased to know that the latest data pack, Business First released Yesterday, 10/3/16. The World of Android Artbook and Space Cowboy’s new board game Crossing have since become available as well, so those are options for someone looking for something to cover their weekend.

So, TGIF folks.

It’s always your friends who stick the knife in. In Crossing, you have to collect gemstones, but players make their choices simultaneously and not everybody will get what they want when desires clash. Through bluffing and cunning, you want to collect more gemstones than your opponents by being the only alone on a card, but even if you are lucky during the initial confrontation, you aren’t safe from the greed of other players.

 

At the end of the Corporate workday, it’s all about the bottom line. So even as the Mumbad Cycle and Business First thrust Jinteki face-first into the middle of a very delicate and politically charged situation, you’ll find the Corp and its executives lining up to face the challenges before them, quickly and professionally. Every challenge is an opportunity, after all, and fans of Jinteki will be rewarded for their faith with a new identity, asset, and piece of ice.

 

The Worlds of Android is your definitive guide to the Android setting and its unique vision of the future. A beautiful, 272-page hardbound setting guide and art book, The Worlds of Android features full-color art, stunning gatefolds, and a polyphony of narrative voices that convey the immense diversity of human experience in the rich, fictional universe made famous by Android: Netrunner and the Android board game.

Download the Tournament Pack HERE and register at the EVENT PAGE.

______________________________________________________

Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wings and TIEs. Engineering teams race to route additional power to failing shields. Laser blasts and explosions flare across the battlefield. Even a single ship can change the tide of battle.

In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. It’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.

Restocks and Stuff

Hey PI-Fans,

How was your weekend? We spent ours handling shipping, but anyhow, stuff is in, and it’s good.
As always, we’ve stuff catering to all sorts of different hobbies and games of all different complexities and restocks of several sought after classics like Ticket To RideBlokus, Splendor and the previously unobtanium-esque 7 Wonders Duel

So yeah!

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

Ah Monday. We Meet Again…

Hey PI-Fans,

How’s your Monday going?  It’s the same for us – unpack boxes, add new stuff to the shelves, that kind of thing.

Anyway, in addition to the Mist of Bilehall expansion for Descent, we’ve restocked Mascarade, Elder Sign and Battlestar Galactica.

So.

I guess I should be a lot more cheery!

Yay!
