Weaver of the Cosmos and Blood of Baalshandor

Hey PI-Fans,

We’re still in the COVID-19 Phase One recovery stage, but while retail is shut, something squamous this way comes.

The Arkham Horror: Blood of Baalshandor novella releases today, featuring Dexter Drake, a brand new investigator – as well as the cards to have ‘Drake the Great’ join your table in games of Arkham Horror.

This is great, because the novella is coming in lockstep with the mythos pack Weaver of the Cosmos, also releasing today. Stay one step ahead of the Outer God Atlach-Nacha as it weaves more and more of the Dreamlands into its web or risk losing everything you hold dear as the rapacious arachnid binds everything tightly in The Great Web.

Up to the challenge? Then why not grab both to qualify for Free Local delivery?

We’ve gotten a basic array of titles up, including some of the more sought after stand-alone expansions, but we’re also working on expanding the Arkham Horror LCG range at the Games @ PI webstore, so check back often to see what else we add.

In the meantime, the weekend is just around the corner, so have a great (old) one.

More For The Store

Hey PI-Fans,

While we’ve stepped out of the Circuit Breaker, very little has changed for us really. Retail is still shuttered but the Games @ PI Webstore on the other hand, is still very much operational.

While we can’t unleash the new Arkham Horror LCG packs to the world just yet (ask again tomorrow), new on the webstore is a pile of titles for your perusal.

As promised, we’re going to keep plugging away at this as we work to expand our RPG, Miniature and Board Game categories.

As always, the option to make the leap over and start browsing right away is always open to you HERE, but if you’d like a list about what we added, keep reading.

Aeronautica Imperialis: Fly The Unfriendly Skies

Hey PI-Fans,

If you’re a fan of Starfighters and making Pew-Pew Noises, Games Workshop has been rather aggressively showcasing it’s Aircraft Dogfight game Aeronautica Imperialis – taking off soon with the upcoming ‘Skies of Fire‘ battle box.

Taros, or T’ros to the T’au occupiers, is a regularly fought over desert mining world. Open warfare broke out on the planet after T’au forces ambushed an Avenging Sons Adeptus Astartes retribution force and occupied the planet.

Take to the skies with the T’au Air Caste as they face down Imperial retribution and go face to face with the Imperium of Man’s Imperial Navy and Astra Militarum pilots, featuring brand new air-frame for Imperial players and the introduction of the T’au as a faction to the aerial battles of Aeronautica Imperialis.

While we can’t take orders through the webstore yet, you can as always drop our web team an email at webstore@pi.com.sg today for Games Workshop products and we’ll get you set up as soon as stock arrives!

Ticket to Ride: London

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go
I get a funny feeling inside of me
Just walking up and down
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London town.

Ticket to Ride: London is a new entry in designer Alan R. Moon’s Ticket to Ride family of games and it carries all the pedigree of its bigger brothers, distilled down into a nippy fast playing form.

Designed to convey the strategy and depth of Ticket to Ride, while keeping playing time down to a half hour or less, Ticket to Ride: London (and her half-sister Ticket to Ride: New York), in a departure from traditional Ticket to Ride, take place in a single condensed city map. In Ticket to Ride: London, this is obviously the titular City of London, giving you a chance to ride the buses and see the sights.

TLDR: Ticket to Ride: London is a streamlined two-to-four player Ticket to Ride experience that keeps all the charm of a full game, distilled down to into a smaller, faster and lighter experience. A worthy buy both if you’ve never played Ticket to Ride before or if you seriously like the game but want a faster more concise experience. Also has adorable London buses as tokens.

THE ENGINE WAR COMES

Hey PI-Fans,

We’ve talked about the upcoming Adeptus Mechanicus reinforcements and the Engine War book in the past on this website, but the charge will be hitting home soon like a Chaos Knight Rampager running full tilt.

From now until 2300 hrs, Friday, 5th June, 2020, all preorders made for Adeptus Mechanics and Engine War releases via the Games @ PI Webstore will be at a special promotional price.*

WE MOVED THE WEBSTORE

Hey PI-Fans,

As the header clearly states, we moved the webstore. For those of you who want to just make the leap over and start exploring right away, you can follow the link HERE.

Something we’ve mentioned in previous announcements was how the previous webstore interface was sort of struggling to keep up with our range of product… In the end, we opted to bite the bullet and made a leap.

On top of all the other titles we’ve added to the mix, there are two new game releases in the store: Abandon All Artichokes, a light vegetable theme card game of dumping unwanted Artichokes and Curios, an economically themed game of tomb raiding for profit.

Warhammer 40,000 Engine War preorder deals are also available, but we’ll cover more on that later.

Jump to the webstore to check them out or keep reading to see all the new titles we’ve added to the mix.

WE ARE MOVING (…the webstore anyway…)

Hey PI-Fans,

More than a month ago, the Games @ PI Team rolled out the Games @ PI webstore interface to keep the games flowing while we remained separated during the Circuit Breaker period.

As we slowly inch towards a return to regular business however, the webstore team has an eye on the future.

For those of you asking, the current webstore isn’t going to go away yet – at least not immediately (and you can always still reach out to us at webstore@pi.com.sg for requests). The plan is to keep it up and running until we can work out the little details of our expansion.

Yeah. I used the word expansion.

We’re aiming for something a little bit…

BIGGER

Keep an eye out folks. There’s something COMING SOON (TM).

A Review of Ramen Fury

Hey PI-Fans,

If you’re looking to stock up on instant noodles of the edible variety, unfortunately, we can’t help you.

On the other hand, what we do have is Ramen Fury, a fast and furious game of instant noodles, ingredient hoarding and sabotage and you can pick up your own copy from the Games @ PI webstore!

And here to tell you more about it with an in-depth review is Wesley!

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

TLDR: Ramen Fury is a light 30 minute card game for 2 to 5 players. Players attempt to draft ingredient cards to add to bowls of ramen to score points. However, ingredients can also be used to sabotage other players dishes by mixing in unwanted flavours to their recipes or outright stolen using spoon tokens, lending the game a ‘take-that’ element! Fast and easy to learn, Ramen Fury is a great game for players who enjoy strategy games with an added ‘sabo’ flavour.

Protecting Your Board Game Investment – A Guide to Sleeves

Hey PI-Fans,

The Games @ PI team has never been one to look at board games as a disposable product. A good board or card game can hit the table multiple times, resulting hours of fun for all involved.

Of course, each time you do this, you risk cards getting scratched, torn or dirty.

This is where plastic card sleeves come in.

The Games @ PI webstore already carries a range of Fantasy Flight Supply sleeves. Sure, there will be oddballs like Spot It!, whose round cards outright defy sleeving and odd shapes like French Tarot cards, but for the most part, you can already protect the cards of most card games – The webstore team is already planning a range expansion to cater to to the remaining cards, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, if you need sleeves not listed on the website, you can drop an email to the webstore team at webstore@pi.com.sg and the crew will do their best to get you sorted.

In the meantime, here’s a handy reference list for the necessary number of packs of sleeves you’ll need to protect the games currently available through our webstore.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark

Mennara is a world of magic, mystery, and adventure. In the deep places beneath the earth lurk terrifying monsters and foul villains, conspiring to plunge the land into shadow. Fortunately, Mennara is also a world of heroes. Heroes clever of mind, strong of sword arm, and stout of heart. Heroes in many shapes and sizes, unlikely heroes of many races and creeds and from many walks of life. Heroes like you…

In a socially distanced world, Descent: Journeys in the Dark brings swashbuckling fantasy adventure and dungeon crawling back to your tabletop. At a time where getting the gang together for a weekly session might prove somewhat difficult, you can find an amazing solo or small group experience right out of the box – even without a DM.

After all, if you’re going to be trapped somewhere for the Circuit Breaker, why not imagine up a dungeon?

TLDR: Descent: Journeys in the Dark is a 2 to 5 player board game dungeon crawler which can be played head to head with one player controlling the monsters, or as a 1 to 4 player cooperative campaign experience with a free app automating the running of scenarios. It seeks to provide a boxed board game take on the whole Role-Playing Game Dungeon Crawl experience.
