A Dire Need Of Caffeine And A Snack…

Hey PI-Fans,

I had something typed up. Then the internet went out.
So. Imagine something witty and laden with dry humor. Then remember you’re talking about Kenneth and remember that that would basically never happen ever.

In lieu of a proper announcement, I figure that I should inform all those who preordered the L5R The Fires Within and The Ebb and Flow Dynasty packs that they are available for collection. The same applies with the Arkham Horror: The Boundary Beyond Mythos pack.

Then there’s the board games.

In this fast-paced Ticket to Ride game, players race one another through the busy streets of New York City to visit the most prestigious Tourist Attractions and complete their Destination Tickets. Ticket to Ride: New York features the familiar gameplay from the Ticket to Ride game series — collect cards, claim routes, draw tickets — but on a scaled-down map of Manhattan that allows you to complete a game in 15 minutes.

Send your animals out to hunt for food, but always be mindful of lurking predators. In Om Nom Nom, players send out their predators to hunt for food sequentially, attempting to gather prey without drawing the attention of other players. Will you be able to second guess your way to victory or will your critters get too greedy and end up a snack for another player’s food chain?

Need a jolt to get your day off to a great start? Jump into the game of Caffeine Rush for a latte fun! You share a workspace with your fellow baristas and orders are flying in fast and furious. Grab the ingredients you need to pump out orders and rake in the tips! But be careful — if someone else finishes your work, they’ll get the tips!

Strange Things Happen

Hey PI-Fans,

Sometimes these things take a while. But they show up eventually.

It’s a LCG heavy release week, with a couple of strategic reprints as well. The Arkham Horror LCG gets bulkier with the Threads of Fate Mythos pack, and Return to the Night of the Zealot expansions, while the Tainted Lands and Breath of the Kami expansions for Legends of the Five Rings are in.

We’ve also taken the opportunity to restock Catan, Cranium, Concept as well as reprints of the previously out-of-print Pandemic: On The Brink Expansion as well as NMBR 9 and Jungle Speed.

So gaming.

Yeah.

Grombindal’s Perilous Incline League


Hey PI-Fans,

Whether you worship the God-Emperor, the God-King or you’re a dirty heretic, xenophile, poncy aelf, glorious beardling… well…

*AHEM* Apologies.

Regardless, it’s time to break out all those little plastic, resin and metal toy soldiers and hit the table with Grombindal’s Perilous Incline League in tribute to that most baronial of beardlings and his magnificent magazine.

Curious how this is going to work? Well look no further. Well… actually… look further, since if you stop here, this just isn’t going to work.

  1. SIGN UP FOR THE LEAGUE AT GAMES @ PI.
    If you don’t actually sign up, nobody is going to know you’re actually on the ladder. And then nobody is going to be able to acknowledge your prowess and generalship. There are benefits to anonymity. This isn’t one of them.
  2. PLAY GAMES OF WARHAMMER AT GAMES @ PI.
    Notice that we didn’t specify either Warhammer 40,000 or Warhammer Age of Sigmar? Well, there are two ladders, so play both. Simultaneously, if you have to. *
  3. CLIMB THE LADDER.
    When you sign up, your name will be placed at the bottom of the table. Don’t let it stay that way for long. If you turn the tables on someone higher ranked than you and walk away victorious, you swap positions on the ladder (There’s that Perilous Incline for you). If you triumph against a player lower ranked than you, you ascend a slot. Just play. **
  4. WALK AWAY WITH A WHITE DWARF.
    The top name at the end of the month gets a copy of White Dwarf FREE. Wouldn’t be Grombindal’s Perilous Incline League without the White Dwarf himself would it?
  5. WIN THE ADMIRATION OF ALL YOUR FRIENDS
    Admiration and friends sold separately.

* Please don’t.

“Violence is what people do when they run out of good ideas.”

Hey PI-Fans,

We’ve buried our staff under a flurry of dice, and they’re frantically sorting them. In the meantime… well…

I’m going to sit here and talk about games.

Because it’s what I do.

Also dice. Because that’s apparently ALSO what I do.

Especially these little fellas who have apparently earned the nickname of ‘Kueh Lapis’ dice amongst the staff.

Are you good with nautical nonsense? Can you kep a seacret? That’s seaaaa-crets. You get it. Try to collect four of the same card before any of the other teams, then pass a secret signal to your teammate. If your partner sees your signal and yells, “YOU’VE GOT CRABS,” you GAIN a point. If an opponent sees your signal and yells, “You’ve got crabs,” you LOSE a point. The team with the most crustaceans effectively wins the game.

The Expanse Board Game is a game of politics, conquest, and intrigue for two to four players based on the television series of the same name. The UN forces of Earth, the military of Mars, the rebels of the O.P.A., and the mysterious Protogen Inc. spread their influence through the solar system, seizing important bases to dominate the solar system, moving fleets, gaining influence, maneuvering their agents and even manipulating the crew of the famous Rocinante in order to maximize control.

Nobody said being a dragon breeder was easy…and the competition is heating up! You begin Dragon Pets with two fine dragons specimens in search of mates. You must send your Dragon Seekers into the forest to collect more dragons, forming mating pairs before other breeders trying to grab the best dragons before you can: The 1783rd annual dragon breeding competition is about to begin. Can you outwit your rivals and claim the title of Supreme Dragon Breeder?

The Storm Is Coming

Hey PI-Fans,

There’s a new edition of Age of Sigmar coming and it’s time to ride the lightning (so to speak), with the launch of the Soul War between Sigmar and Nagash.

Nagash, the Undying King and God of Death, eager to assert the dominion of death over all things, has sent his Nighthaunt legions marching upon the free city of Glymmsforge, bastion of Azyr in the Realm of Death. Rushing to the embattled city’s defence are the Stormcast Eternals of the Sacrosanct Chamber – Sigmar Heldenhammer’s legion of architects, mages and priests, unleashed from their duties to prosecute a bloody war.

And as dawn breaks on this literal life and death struggle… magic itself has changed forever…

To get you started with, we’re kicking off the new edition with a bunch of starter bundles to get you safely stuck into the coming War of Souls. Come down to GAMES@PI and place your pre-orders for the New SOUL WARS & MALIGN SORCERY!

Not All Soldiers

Hey PI-Fans,

June’s almost out. As I sit here in my office and type this, it’s sort of amazing to watch time disappear.

Never enough of it, I tell you.

Thing about time is that it’s all in how you make use of it. So in a bid to speed up your transactions, we’ve upgraded to Contactless Payment. Grab your game, tap your CC and go.

Because when you have a new game you want, the last thing you want to be doing is spending your time in a queue.

Anyway… speaking of new games…

______________________________________________

Build a Unicorn Army. Betray your friends. Unicorns are your friends now. The object of Unstable Unicorns is to build your stable of unicorns the fastest. Throughout this endeavor, cards can be played by yourself (or others) to help, hinder, or otherwise destroy your plans. Seek revenge or protect your stable using your Magic! Or not. Or something. It’s one of THOSE games. Neigh!

A dark void has opened, and undead creatures are attempting to enter our world. You have come together as guardians who must work together to force the undead back through the void.  In The Banishing, players collect cards from the Void to form melds to cast unique spells and effects in an effort to complete the ritual of Banishing, which will hurl the undead back through the Void. Players must work together to create those melds, as well as to protect and heal each other from attacks by the undead in order to succeed.

In war, not everyone is a soldier. This War Of Mine: The Board Game thrusts players into the role of civilians trapped in a besieged and conflict-ridden city.  The goal of This War of Mine is to survive until the cessation of war hostilities. During your struggle as the survivors, you will experience dramas connected with making extremely difficult decisions and choices. More importantly, will the characters be able to live with themselves when the war is over?

Go Farm

Hey PI-Fans,

Another week rolls around and we’re keeping the momentum going with more releases on the board game and RPG fronts.

Now to arm twist someone into running Tales from the Loop.

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

 

Step into the alternate ’80s universe created by scifi artist Simon Stålenhag in this retro RPG, in the vein of ET and Stranger Things. Middle school was the worst of days. Puberty, parents, school yard cliques, cybernetically enhanced birds attacking your sleepy town. For the children of the Tales from the Loop RPG, winner of five ENnies in 2017 including Best Game, Best Setting, Best Writing and Product of the Year, this is but a small sample of the things they have to deal with on an everyday basis.

The Champions are here and determined to bring optimism to the world after Civil War II when Avenger fought Avenger. Expand your Legendary experience with a new generation of Marvel heroes! Taking inspiration from Marvel’s run of Champions that was born from the events in the wake of Civil War II, Legendary Champions brings 100 new cards to the Legendary Deck-Building Game, including five new heroes, two new villain groups, and two new masterminds.

Plot your farms in Harvest Dice, a fast, fun game of dice drafting and veggie doodling! In Harvest Dice, players are farmers managing their vegetable plot and trying to profit the most from the coming harvest.  Each round, players take turns rolling and selecting dice in order to plant veggies in their gardens or feed them to their pig. However, keep an eye on the ever-changing market because you want to make sure you have plenty of desirable vegetables come harvest time.

There and back again

Hey PI Fans,

After taking an unintended Asian tour to several different countries through a thunderstorm, a host of service disruptions and a multitude of shipping errors, something has finally wandered in.

Here’s a quick look at the new stuff, fresh from what was arguably the worst logistics disaster I’ve experienced in a while.

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

Long Cow is a moo-mentous card game of competitive cattle construction! Build cows by collecting heads, tails, and middles from the deck. The longer the cow, the more points you score. Bolster your barn with holy cows, robot cows, and even a cross-bred Franken-cow. But make hay before your herd is hit by a tornado, or worse- an alien abduction! Round up the biggest bovines and party like the cows came home!

It’s time for a new wave of Unlock! adventures with three new exciting escape experiences ready to be challenged. Professor Noside returns for revenge in A Noside Story, you’ll attempt to keep train robbers away from your precious cargo in Tombstone Express, and you can help Dorothy and her friends escape the Wicked Witch of the West in The Adventures of Oz.

In The Labyrinths of Lunacy, you and your fellow investigators wake to find yourselves gathered in a strange place, with no memory of how you arrived. With this unique, 80-card standalone scenario for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, you become the prisoner of a mysterious mastermind, forced to take part in his cruel experiments. To escape, you and your fellow investigators will need to work together. You’ll need to piece together the clues to solve your captor’s twisted riddles. And you’ll need to hurry—you aren’t alone in this prison…

Discover what secrets have been drowned in Devil Reef in The Deep Gate! This Arkham Horror novella by Chris A. Jackson takes readers on a voyage up the Miskatonic River running through Arkham and the along the coasts of fear-shadowed Innsmouth where sailor Silas Marsh seeks answers about the nightmares that have plagued him since his parents’ death. The Deep Gate includes four exclusive cards for Arkham Horror: The Card Game which allow players to add Silas Marsh to their team of investigators, marking his first appearance in the game.

Shiba Tsukune wasn’t supposed to become the Champion of the Phoenix Clan, but their ancient sword chose her. Trained as a samurai warrior, she was to be the bodyguard of Isawa Tadaka, a powerful shugenja—and the man she loved. Although her new duties have drawn them apart, she refuses to stand by and watch as Tadaka falls to the darkness within him. The Sword and the Spirits novella  also features two alternate art cards for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, including an extended art version of Kaito Kosori and the currently unavailable Ofushikai, ancestral weapon of the Phoenix Clan.

Mordenkainen’s Fome of Toes.

Yes. Mordenkainen’s Fome of Toes.

 

Hey PI-Fans,

The general release of Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes has arrived. Chock full of stabby obstacles for the discerning GM and all new character options for players looking to branch out, Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes is a solid expansion to players looking to broaden their D&D horizons.

On top of this, we’ve not neglected the board game front either.

If you keep an eye out, you’ll notice new party games like Who Did It, the light strategy Brix and for those who like their simulation games with a bit of bite, there’s Aviation Tycoon and Bios Megafauna.

Anyone up for some gaming?

Start The Week With Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes

Hey PI-Fans,

Between preorders for the rerelease of the classic Vampire: The Eternal Struggle CCG and the return of Gary Gygax’s old player character to D&D, it’s a week for nostalgia, isn’t it?

As an added bonus, we’ve secured a limited supply of the limited edition cover versions as well. Quantities are limited, so… well… we’ll see how long they last.

Other bits and pieces floating in include Arkham Horror LCG restocks, the Dragonfire expansions people have been clamouring for and restocks for the RPG range.

Good time for a game, I guess.
