Hey… Player Player…

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been one of those days where an avalanche of boxes threatens to bury me alive.

Ah well. It means games, games and more games.

There’s…. *DEEP BREATH*… Catan, Eldritch Horror, Dixit, The Iron Throne, Mansions of Madness, Splendor, Onitama, One Night Ultimate Alien, Munchkin, Machi Koro, Chez Geek, Cutthroat Caverns, Dominion, Love Letter, Savage Worlds, Marvel Legendary, Flashpoint Fire Rescue…

But… you’re not here to listen to me babble about restocks. You’re here for the NEW.

So.

With Smash Up: Big In Japan, AEG adds another slew of factions to Smash Up with Kaiju, Mahou Shoujo, Sentai and an array of assorted ridiculously cute critters which come very close to triggering a lawsuit.  You know the drill – Mess With Opponents, Smash Bases and Score Points with this two player set, or just add it to your Smash Up collection to unleash the horrors that are Russian Magical Girl or Steampunk Kaiju upon the world. Why you ask? Why not?

Cities of Splendor adds four new ways to play Splendor with a quartet of mini-expansions. Mix up the gameplay with The Cities objective tiles, Trading Posts which encourage alternative developments, lock down the board with Strongholds or visit The Orient with all new developmental card powers, all designed to shake up your Splendor gameplay and change up your strategies.

In the latest BattleTech sourcebook to revisit the ages past, watch a universe tear itself apart as the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere rush back to a war footing at the dawn of the Second Succession War, hurling what remains of their denuded armies against each other in a massive orgy of destruction. Yet as regiments march across worlds, a new power is arising on Terra, and ignored in the thrashing of great Houses, Comstar makes its play for power in the grand scale.

7th Sea is a tabletop roleplaying game of swashbuckling and intrigue, exploration and adventure, taking place on the continent of Theah, a land of magic and mystery inspired by  European history. Players take the roles of heroes thrown into global conspiracies and sinister plots, exploring ancient ruins of a race long vanished and protecting the rightful kings and queens of Theah from murderous villains.

Boots On The Ground

Hey PI-Fans,

Given I spent the last couple of weeks in green, it’s good to be back. And if you didn’t notice, that means my staff are pulling things off. Good job, folks.

Back to the topic and hand. It’s been more than a fortnight without me screeching about new shiny stuff hitting our shelves. So, I should probably get to screeching.

Important restocks this time around include the Arkham Horror LCG Core Set, Dixit, TIME Stories, Takenoko, Eldritch Horror, Stone Age, 7 Wonders Duel, Mice & Mystics and Citadels.

And then there’s the new.

A map building card game set in feudal Japan, in Honshu, players are lords and ladies of Noble houses seeking new lands to expand their holdings and opportunities for fame and fortune. Manipulate turn order to secure developments and strategically place them  down to maximize your city’s development to win in this fast playing city-builder.

Set thousands of years in Pathfinder’s future, Starfinder is a stand-alone roleplaying game evolved from the Pathfinder rules and designed to bring you a whole new universe of science fantasy adventures. Play alien races both new and familiar as you explore the mysteries of a weird galaxy. Uncountable worlds are waiting for you and your intrepid crew!

Plunge into the arena on Adrenaline, a grim dark… actually never mind. You’re here for the shooting and the game knows it. Forget the plot. Run around grabbing weapons and using them on other people like a deathmatch on steroids. Fun, fast and surprisingly strategic, Adrenaline’s somehow manages to mesh the entertainment value of a multiplayer deathmatch with a light strategy game.

Compete to make off with the best spread of treasure and cash in Treasure Hunter, a resource drafting card game from gaming maestro Richard Garfield. Delve into a dungeon and manage your drafts as you attempt to beat all the other players seeking similar loot.

Codenames Duet

Codenames Duet Releases Today, 25/8/17

Hey PI-Fans,

Codenames Duet, the latest game in the Codenames family releases today with an all new spin on  the one-word deduction formula. Work together as a team to recover your deep cover agents without alerting too many bystanders or tipping off the assassin in this two or more player cooperative experience!

By The Boxload

Hey PI-Fans,

With the internet being what it is, you’re probably better off trying to reach us at 8189 3050, if anything crops up.

In the meantime, lets do this restock thing.

Here’s the new stuff.

Hero Realms is a fantasy-themed deck-building game that is an adaptation of the award-winning Star Realms game. The game includes basic rules for two-player games, along with rules for multiplayer formats such as Free-For-All, Hunter, and Hydra.

Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends is a game played by masters of magic. Two to four summoners encounter each other in the Tash-Kalar arena, and prove their skill and strategy in a short but intense battle. By clever deployment of their minions, they create magic patterns for summoning powerful beings, and then use those to destroy their opponent’s forces or to prepare patterns for the ultimate legendary beings.

Battle for Greyport is a cooperative deck-building game based on the  world of The Red Dragon Inn. You will travel to important locations around the city, fighting epic battles and recruiting whatever heroes and items you can along the way. Will you defend the city from the monsters and defeat their nefarious boss, or will the city (and the tavern!) be overrun?

So… a theory

Hey PI-Fans,

Does anyone even read this? If I just put words here, would people notice? Word Word Word Word Wordy Word. Just a theory that wordy wordy word word.

Ok. Got that out of my system.

Mostly.

It’s a RPG centric haul this week. We’ve got Curse of the Statuettes for Tails of Equestria, the MLP RPG, Dresden Files Accelerated and the Blue Rose: The AGE RPG of Romantic Fantasy. Also, scads of new Reaper Bones minis.

In addition, even if you’re not a RPG junkie, fans of the Dresden Files will be happy to know we’ve gotten in copies of the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game.

So. It isn’t quite a Monday, but the weird week isn’t done with me by half.

My Little Pony: The Curse of the Statuettes is an expansion set to the storytelling pen and paper game, My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria. Including a gamemaster screen, character sheets, polyhedral dice, and an adventure book, this expansion pack is perfect for budding gamemasters setting out explore a world of friendship and magic. Friendship is Magic. Magic is Heresy.
In The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, players work together to solve cases from the bestselling Dresden Files novels in the ultimate what-if scenario: What if Harry was on the scene with allies who weren’t there in the original story? Play Harry, Murphy, Susan, Michael, and the Alphas in the first five novels, or take on “Side Jobs” in a random scenario generator based on the short story collection of the same name.

Welcome to Dresden Files Accelerated Edition, a pared-down, pick-up-and-play RPG set in the world of Jim Butcher’s NYT bestselling novel series. Take a jaunt through the Nevernever, stand up to the Black Court, and sit down for a pint at Mac’s. This book contains all you need to make it happen.

Weird Week

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been an ‘interesting’ week in the same manner as the ‘Chinese Curse‘.

If you’re not already aware, Games @ PI is hiring and I’ve spent the week holding interviews with prospective employees.  If you’re interested, it’s not too late to check out our staff roles and responsibilities.

Thanks to disruptions, I’m doing restocks on Friday instead of Monday. Also, due to technical difficulties with our new fibre phone line installation, the store phone is down.

If you need to reach us, you can call us at 81893050 while we get this resolved.

In the meantime, have some X-Men themed releases.

Join the X-Men on a thrilling adventure to defend mankind from renegade mutants. Munchkin: X-Men Edition combines Marvel’s beloved collection of X-Men comics with the pseudo-roleplaying fun of Munchkin. Players take on the role of students attending Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters and team up with Professor X, Wolverine, and more super-charged mutants to take down the likes of Sabretooth, Juggernaut, and the almighty Magneto.

The Legendary X-Men expansion to the Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game puts the spotlight squarely on the titular team, bringing to the game many of the X-Men characters that have been overlooked since the inception of the Legendary game. This big box expansion has X-Men’s biggest heroes, including Psylocke and Banshee, battling their greatest foes. Even Beast makes a return as an all new X-Men team affiliated Hero!

Get ready to loot the body in Boss Monster: Implements of Destruction as heroes bring their A-Game, carting lethal items to the dungeon in an attempt to fight their way through and defeat the boss. Of course, being a Boss Monster, nothing says you can’t smash said heroes flat and claim their gear to outfit your minions either. It’s loot or be looted!
