News and updates on what’s going on

The Inevitable Face (Eaten) Off


Hey PI-Fans,

With the zombie apocalypse upon us,  clearly we’re going to band together to survive this together, right?

Yeah, right.

Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies takes the survival mechanics of Dead of Winter to their logical conclusion as two colonies of survivors scrabble over the same set of resources in an all new variant for 4-11 players.

You know this means war.

And while you’re here, we’ve got our hands on the Dead of Winter Roberta Plum and Kodiak Colby mini expansions, so now’s your chance to add these sought after Survivors to your games of Dead of Winter.

Cow Noises

Hey PI-Fans,

Control the destinies of secretive Darloks, genius Psilons, adaptable humans and many others as you steer a race across this outer space confrontation. Marshal your resources as you seek to balance military confrontation and colonization efforts in a a bid to become the Emperor at the Galactic Council.

Will your species triumph in this all new tableau building card game? Or will you fall by the wayside?

It’s time to head for the stars, with Master of Orion.

 

The Weekly Recap – 21/10/17

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been a solid week of stuff flooding into the stores, so it’s about time for a recap. For those that missed out, here’s a week in the life.

And for those following the shipment mishap – we’ve gotten our Plagueburst Crawlers in finally.

Scale the walls… and the titan itself as the Survey Corp takes the fight to invading Titans in Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, using clever placement and planning to avoid the lumbering moves of the Titan… or play as the lumbering brute itself and smash the irritants before they bring you down in this thematic game of bluff and misdirection.

Take the thematic betrayal of Betrayal at House on the Hill mechanics and meshing them with the fantasy trappings of one of Dungeons & Dragons most iconic cities! Will your band of adventurers survive in a city most commonly associated with Bhaal, the God of Murder? Find out in Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate!

Will you find one of the revered Vestiges of Divergence or perhaps discover part of the Chroma Conclave’s legacy? Can you help the Ashari in their sacred charge to prevent the elemental vortices from overwhelming the world, or will you find yourself embroiled in the machinations of the Clasp? Prepare to visit the vista’s of Matt Mercer’s own campaign, made popular via the Critical Role webseries in the Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting supplement for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

You died. Journey into the Dark Souls universe and dive into a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players. Each time you decide where to go, you will experience a new danger as you explore, with each new location a real risk to your hard-won progress. If you die, then you drop everything as you return to the nearest bonfire.

In Power Grid: The Card Game, the players represent CEOs of mighty power companies producing electricity. Bid for power plants at auctions and supply them with resources. Their income depends on the amount of electricity produced in each round. At the end of the game, the player who produces the most electricity wins the game.

Ghosts Love Candy—everyone knows that! The cruel twist is that they no longer have the physical bodies to enjoy the scrumptious candy they crave. But, on Halloween, the rules are off. Ghosts use this mystical and eerie night to temporarily possess unsuspecting Trick-or-Treaters so they can indulge in as much candy as they can get their invisible hands on. Use your team of ghosts to possess Trick-or-Treaters and gobble up the candy you crave. But be careful! When a Trick-or-Treater eats too much candy they get sick and become your burden if you were the one to push them past their candy limit.

A reprint of a  long unavailable expansion for Marvel Legendary, Marvel Legendary Fantastic Four reintroduces Marvel’s first family to the world of Legendary. Now you can play as fan-favorite Heroes: Thing, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and Silver Surfer as they fend off the new evil Schemes of Masterminds like the world-devouring Galactus!

 

Shadespire was once a city of wonder and magic, a mercantile metropolis whose rulers defied death, to the fury of Nagash. Those adventurers foolish enough to set foot within its walls are trapped, with all hope seemingly lost. Yet not all will accept their fate without a fight… Take the fight to the foe in Warhammer Underworlds: Shadepire, a fast playing tactical  skirmish board game  of warband combat in a ruined city, containing two full warbands for two players!

Hey PI-Fans,

With the Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting, we’re off to Tal’Dorei, stomping ground of the Vox Machina adventuring company

Prepare to visit the vista’s of Matt Mercer’s own campaign, made popular via the Critical Role webseries in this supplement for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

Prepare to Die

Hi PI-Fans,

Bearer, Seek, Seek, Lest..

Journey into the Dark Souls™ universe and dive into a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players.

With multiple difficulty modes and a high-level of replayability, this is a game designed to be deep enough to satisfy hard-core tabletop gamers whilst remaining accessible to newer players.

Go Beyond Death

Each time you decide where to go, you will experience a new danger as you explore, with each new location a real risk to your hard-won progress. If you die, then you drop everything you have collected and reappear at the nearest bonfire.

Join us on 18th October and try it out for the first time. And together we shall face the Dragon Slayer Ornstein & Executioner Smough or dance with The Dancer of the Boreal Valley or die trying.

Only Embers Remain…

Party On…

Never Split the Party… Unless Someone is the Traitor!

Hey PI-Fans,

Welcome back to Baldur’s Gate, brave adventurers! Welcome back indeed, since Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is now available at Games @ PI.

Take the thematic betrayal of Betrayal at House on the Hill mechanics and meshing them with the fantasy trappings of one of Dungeons & Dragons most iconic cities! Will your band of adventurers survive in a city most commonly associated with Bhaal, the God of Murder?

Can you and your party survive the madness, or will you succumb to the mayhem and put the laughter in slaughter?

Here’s a little piece of Trivia. Despite it’s fame in Computer RPG history, only about a third of the series took place in and around the titular city.

The Walls Come Tumbling Down

“If we focus on making the best moves, we will never get the better of our opponent. When necessary, we must be willing to take the big risks and be prepared to lose everything.”

Hey PI-Fans,

Strap on that Vertical Maneuvering Equipment and get ready to climb. Attack On Titan: The Last Stand is now available at Games @ PI.

Scale the walls… and the titan itself as the Survey Corp takes the fight to invading Titans, using clever placement and planning to avoid the lumbering moves of the Titan… or play as the lumbering brute itself and smash the irritants before they bring you down in this thematic game of bluff and misdirection.

It’s all come down to this. Titans have broken through Wall Maria and are heading for the supply depot in Trost. If the depot falls, all the resources needed to continue fighting off these monstrous aberrations will be destroyed and all hope for the last remnants of mankind will be lost. It’s up to you and your team to fend off and fell the Titans before they can succeed! Are you ready for the last stand?

A Weekly Recap

Hey PI-Fans,

With the week drawing into the weekend, I thought I should probably mention the cool stuff we’ve got on hand to round out the week. You know how the regular stock flood works, by now, so I figure I should focus on the cool new stuff.

Oh. And I should probably mention we got the Legend of the Five Rings Core Set back in as well. Quantities are limited, so speed is of the essence.

An all new expansion for the award winning Sheriff of Nottingham, Merry Men
introduces five new gameplay modules as well as expanding the game of deception and bribery to include a 6th player.

Shiba Inu House is fast and frantic game of doghouse construction. Players race to place cards properly in order to create doghouses for the shiba inu that match the patterns shown on their goal cards, with scoring order being determined by the speed and accuracy with which the resultant doge-houses are built. Yes. That was intentional.

In Tomb of Annihilation, The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Take up your sword and ready your spellbook, as this all new adventure covers a party from level 1 to 11 and takes a group of fledgling adventurer on a wild ride through the dinosaur infested jungles of Chult.

The first volume of monsters and adversaries for the Lone Wolf Adventure Game, the Magnamund Menagerie comes packed with creatures from the multi-million selling Lone Wolf Gamebooks. Every monster has an illustration, game stats and fascinating details about them. Filled with everything from Assassins to Zlanbeasts, the Magnamund Menagerie is an essential reading for GMs looking to terrorize their players with all new adversaries.

Missing GW Shipments – Grombrindal Escapes

Plagueburst Crawler and Bloat Drones Shipment Still Missing. Grombrindel Escapes The Warp

Hey PI-Fans,

After a week, we have yet to fully recover the Games Workshop order misdelivered by UPS.

While some stragglers, including a partial complement of the White Dwarf Magazines, the Astra Militarum Codex as well as the Plague Surgeon and Tallyman have escaped the clutches of the immaterium, the main body of the order still remains lost.

We expect new stocks of the Plagueburst Crawler and Bloat-Drones to arrive next week.

The 14th October releases including the Multi-Part Plague Marines, Biologus Putrifier, Icon Bearer and Plague Marine Champions are unaffected and will be available on release date.

We apologize for the delays.

The Sheriff of Nottingham: Merry Men expansion is now available

Hey PI-Fans,

If you’re a fan of Sheriff of Nottingham, up your game with the Merry Men Expansion, now available at Games @ PI!

The Merry Men expansion introduce five new modules that can be added to the base game, as well as the option of including a sixth player to your Sheriff of Nottingham games.

Are you ready to bluff, bribe and negotiate your contraband into Nottingham? The grab your copy of the Merry Men expansion today!

 

  • Deputies: In six player games, you may use two Deputies instead of a single Sheriff. Here, both deputies must decide to search bags or let people pass, and they will share the punishments and rewards. If a deputy disagrees with the other and searches a bag, they will receive the punishment or reward by themselves.
  • Merry Men: Adds new illegal goods in the form of ‘merry men’ characters. If they are successfully smuggled in, players will reveal it and activate its special ability.
  • Black Market: Adds three sets of bonus cards that display illegal goods. The first player who successfully smuggles in the indicated goods receives the bonus cards and a large reward.
  • Laws: Sheriffs must draw three law cards and choose two to keep. The chosen laws are in play for the entire round.
  • Special Orders: Special order cards indicate combinations of one legal and one illegal good. If players can smuggle both of those items in the same bag, they get that card, which provides them with bonus gold.
