GAME NIGHTS @ PI : MUNCHKIN

Games @ PI is hosting a Munchkin Game Night On 18th May 2016

Hey PI-Fans,

The Games @ PI staff will be cracking out Steve Jackson’s classic card game Munchkin on Wednesday, 18th May 2016. For the uninitiated, Munchkin is a satirical card game parodying the structure of an adventure game.

If you’ve never played Munchkin, now is as good a time as any to try out the game, so come on down and play a round or two with the Games @ PI staff.

We’ll also be handing out a limited edition Munchkin promotional cards to each participant, so come down to Games @ PI and play this award winning game with our friendly staff.

Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.

Admit it. You love it.

Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can steal their stuff.

T.I.M.E. Stories: Under The Mask Is Released Today 12/05/16

Hey PI-Fans,

Ever wondered what it would be like to go back and try a day again? T.I.M.E. Stories lets you.

In Under the Mask, the latest expansion in the T.I.M.E. Stories series, you and your fellow temporal agents must travel back to ancient Egypt to solve a crime that threatens to destabilize the future.
– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

 

In T.I.M.E. Stories, the  T.I.M.E Agency protects humanity by preventing temporal faults and paradoxes from threatening the fabric of our universe. As temporal agents, you and your team will be sent into the bodies of beings from different worlds or realities to successfully complete the missions given to you.

 

An Unexpected Bounty

Hey PI-Fans,

Having a pallet show up unannounced is occasionally amusing… sometimes…. less… amusing. What matters, however, is that stuff is in.

If you’ve been hunting the elusive Time Stories or Ticket to Ride Europe, or planning to bolster your game library with Quadropolis or Warhammer Quest, well… time to slip on your pith helmet and exclaim “BULLY”, cos’ they’re right in sight.

Here’s to the working week, folks.

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

______________________________________________

In Quadropolis you enact the role of the Mayor of a modern city. You will need to define a global strategy to build your city according to your Inhabitants’ needs and outmatch your opponents, sending your Architects to have various buildings erected in your city. Each building allows you to score victory points. There are various types of buildings with different scoring patterns; many of them may be combined for better effect.

Will your your quest end in death or glory? In Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game, 1 to 4 players guide some of the Old World’s most iconic heroes into the shadows to vanquish some of Warhammer’s most terrifying monsters in a quest for fabulous treasure in this modern re-implementation of the classic cooperative dungeon crawl.

 

Black Templars have entered the cathedral of Saint Camila to recover precious relics as the Shrine World of Sacaellum enters its death throes. This world has been utterly ravaged by war, and every faction has played its role in the titanic battle. Now, as a team of Eldar warriors ambush the Black Templars and escape with the relics, you have the chance to determine who will be left standing atop the rubble of Sacaellum. Will the Eldar triumph in The Final Gambit for Warhammer Conquest?


In T.I.M.E. Stories, the T.I.M.E Agency protects humanity by preventing temporal faults and paradoxes from threatening the fabric of our universe. As a temporal agent, you and your team will be sent into the bodies of beings from different worlds or realities to successfully complete the missions given to you.  Take possession of local hosts to navigate in a given environment and marshal your resources as you manipulate the timeline in search of that ever elusive “perfect” run.

May The 4th Be With You

Games @ PI is celebrating Star Wars Day with a Star Wars Sale

Hey PI-Fans,

A long long time ago in a galaxy not so far away, “May the 4th Be With You” was originally coined in the far-away land of the United Kingdom to mark the ascension to Prime Minister of a certain Margaret Thatcher. (Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka?)
His name is Kettch, and he’s an Ewok.
Now, we better know May the 4th as Star Wars Day. What is Star Wars Day you ask? Here’s an explanation by Star Trek Voyager’s Tim Russ.
No.
Those of you following from home would know we announced a sale of 10% off all Star Wars products on May the 4th to celebrate the Star Wars Day. Sadly we realize Star Wars Day is (shockingly) not a public holiday and some customers have left feedback that they can’t make it on the day…Oh, yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say, ‘Yub, yub.’ He makes it a battle cry.
We feel your pain. After all why should anyone be deprived of Star Wars for something as mundane as work?
I’m going to get you, Janson.
So. Here’s how it’s going to work.

From now until the end of May the 4th, we’ll extend our 10% off all Star Wars branded merchandise to any customer who comes to store, goes to the counter staff and proclaims:

“YUB YUB, COMMANDER!”

So, in the mean time, keep those blasters firing and those lightsabers swinging folks and have a great Star Wars Day!

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager Yub, yub, Commander.

Just for the record by the way, his name Is Kettch.

 

Running Ragged

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s time to hack-and-crack on the 28th of April, with the release of FFG’s new Salsette Island Data Pack for Android: Netrunner and the Android: Mainframe board game.

In the dystopian future of the Android universe, elite cybercriminals know as Netrunners vie for control of cyberspace – in Mainframe, runners have penetrated a bank’s security and are attempting to siphon vulnerable accounts. Place down  programs to cordon of chunks of the compromised network under your control and battle with other runners to secure the greatest quantity of vulnerable accounts.

In Salsette Island, however, the corporations aren’t taking the Runner problem lying down – an alliance of corporations led by the Jinteki Megacorp has begun operations in the Indian Union. Will this be enough to tip the balance of power back into the Corporation’s favor? Find out in this latest installment of the Mumbad cycle.

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager
