Back In The Loop

Hey PI-Fans,

Apologies, folks. Duty called and I ended up spending the past couple of weeks in holed up somewhere near Lim Chu Kang.

But enough about me.  You’re here for the games. We’ve got our usual spread of new stuff, and all those Splendor, Ticket to Ride and Dixit restocks you’ve been waiting for.

Business as usual, folks!

Alternatively described as a gripping co-operative game of supernatural deduction and a “game of ghosts, murder and hilarious incompetence“, in Mysterium, players are alternately Mediums attempting to grapple with cryptic clues from a haunting as they attempt to solve a murder, or a Ghost who is increasingly frustrated by the inability of the Mediums to follow his instructions. Will the murder be solved before the harried Ghost player has an aneurysm and collapses?

In Shakespeare, players are theater managers who must recruit actors, craftsmen, jewelers and others in order to assemble everything needed for the play’s performance at week’s end. Each day players recruit one new character and take actions with the characters they have. After the actions, they must check the ambience level in their theater, hoping to gain gaining points and rehearsal time.  Players must juggle the balance between earning revenue to pay their actors and at the same time ensure the artistry of their plays to maintain their credibility.

The Audience has spoken – in the Room 25 Season 2 expansion for the claustrophobic Room 25 survival game, new arrivals have been tossed into the labyrinthine survival game – and the existing cast has gotten all new power boosts. Of course, the complex hasn’t stayed the same either, and the players will have to face more hazards and traps in their bid for survival.

Dale’s XV88 Broadside Painting Log

It’s still the month of the Tau for fans of Warhammer 40,000! To prove that anyone can paint tabletop quality models, our staff, Dale, decided to take on the challenge to speed paint (and assemble) the fantastic Tau XV88 Broadside Battlesuit just a couple of days ago. Without further ado, lets dive into the makings of!

October 27th, 2015

8:00 PM: I pried open a box of the XV88 Broadside Battlesuit. Looking at the components inside, there doesn’t seem to be many. This should be fairly doable.

8:38 PM: Seems like the XV88 Broadside Battlesuit is now online! I finished building it with the options that I wanted. As expected, it wasn’t all that challenging. Took me longer than anticipated as I was managing the Netrunner League as well.

8:42 PM: Joe offered to help with the undercoat (or priming of the model) since I was busy with the League.

8:49 PM: The undercoating is done! Now the only problem is waiting for it to dry and cure. Joe offered to help with the base coating of red, as I wanted this XV88 Broadside Battlesuit to be part of the Farsight Enclave.

9:16 PM:  The base coat of red is completed! Joe did a pretty even base coat with the airbrush, which sped things up significantly. I decided to bring it home for further painting of the details.

The base coat is done.

23:42 PM: Supper needs to be dealt with first before painting. Instant ramen looks fantastic.

0120 AM: Food coma happened. Finally decided to start on painting. Will begin with the major colours.

0147 AM: The grey areas now done. They were done carefully so I don’t have much to touch up on later.

Greys are done! Looks better now.
Greys are done! Looks better now.

0150 AM: Decided to take  quick break. Tuned in to Netflix for some background noise while I prepare to work on the minor colours and detailing.

0352 AM: Still working on the details and such while watching “Parks and Recreation”.

0405 AM: And I’m done. It’s way past bed time. Time for me to turn in. More models can be completed in the days to come.

And it's done! All that remains is to put it on the table and play!
And it’s done! All that remains is to put it on the table and play!

TLDR: Total time taken for a pretty basic tabletop ready paint job? Around 3 hours, that includes assembly and not loafing around.

The Hunt for Cypher!

‘Fortune favours the faithful’

Fancy yourself a chance at a 25% discount off a single item from our store? Look no further! Join us in our Hunt for Cypher Painting Contest!

The theme of the contest revolves around your interpretation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 character, Cypher. The model you would like to work on does not have to specifically be an Dark Angels Infantry Space Marine. You’re free to use your creative engine to reimagine Cypher! Perhaps he could be an Ork in a parallel universe, or even actually ascending to a Daemon Prince!

So what’s required of you?

The entry fee to the contest is SGD$10.00, although you’ll be given a $6 Dollar Voucher Dice to be used in our store. The deadline for registration is November 27th, 2015.

Participants are required to submit a single model mounted on a base no larger than 60mm. The final submission date is December 18th, 2015, although you can always submit yours before the deadline. The following bases can be used:

  • 25mm round

  • 40mm round
  • 50mm round
  • 60mm round
  • 35x60mm Oval
  • Bike base

Participants are also encouraged to post a Work-In-Progress update to our Facebook page with #huntforcypher; participants that post at least two updates will receive one PI Store Dice.

Your models will be judged on the following criterion:

  • Modelling
  • Painting
  • Theme Compliance

Results will be announced on December 25th, 2015. Two winners will be picked by staff voting, as well as public voting in the store during the period of December 19th till December 24th, 2015. Each winner will get an incredible 25% discount of any single item in the store!

Data and Dracula

Fury of Dracula (3rd Edition) and Android Netrunner: Data and Destiny Release Today, 27/10/15

Morning PI-Fans,

It’s release day and we’ve got the goods, so it’s time to make the Run. Tune your decks with the bleeding edge of technology with the new Data and Destiny Expansion, or embrace the return of a modern classic with the all new edition of Fury of Dracula.

Stalk the ageless count across Europe in your struggle to end his deathless rampage in this all new edition of the two to five player game of misdirection. Mislead your hunters and lose their pursuit as Dracula, or find the count and stake him during the day when he’s helpless as a Hunter and Decide once and for all whether Europe will fall under the undead Count’s terrible influence.

A global security agent smashes effortly smashes through firewalls…
A mad bioroid struggles to contain its obsession with running…
An amorphous entity slowly consumes the net…

It’s time to face destiny.

This Was A Triumph…


Hi PI-Fans,

The week isn’t done folks. Here’s another wave of releases, including many new sought-after releases. Lets get down to it.

The latest addition  to the Smash Up  “shufflebuilding” game: Take two twenty-card decks and shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more Bases than your opponents! Smash Up Munchkin brings Clerics, Halflings, Orcs, Warriors, Elves, Thieves, Dwarves and Mages to your Munchkin game, and bring the wacky antics of Steve Jackson’s Munchkin card game to your Smash Up table.

The latest titles in Seiji Kanai’s smash hit Lost Legacy series, Lost Legacy: Vorpal Sword & Whitegold Spire and Lost Legacy: Third Chronicle – Sacred Grail & Staff of Dragons continue the  ongoing search for ruined components of the alien starship. Take charge of all new casts of characters and join the quest to find the Lost Legacies as you race to hold your discoveries against the prying eyes of the other players.

 
Coup Rebellion G54 uses the same lightning fast rules found in Coup – claim, counter, challenge and bluff – and then adds an exciting strategic layer through character selection.  Before each game starts, five character roles are chosen randomly from 25 different cards. Each of the five characters has a unique ability – the combination of abilities and interplay between them makes each game unique.  Will your bluffing, deduction, negotiation and luck be enough to carry you through the rebellion? Or will your influence crumble in the face of your foes?
In Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game, the cake is no lie. Your team of test subjects has entered the Lab and is ready to perform all sorts of important, dignified, and dangerous testing procedures… all in the pursuit of cake! Do you risk gathering moist slices of industrial-grade cake early for a quick win? Or do you bide your time and wait until you can protect it better? It’s a fun and funny fast-paced fight to the finish — and by finish, we mean your team probably died.

 

The battle between the Informants and the Resistance has led to one final battle. In One Night Revolution, the resistance has prepared to strike, yet the Informants pose an ever looming threat within their tanks. Every player starts with a specialist role and an ID (either Government Informant or Rebel Fighter). Using their Specialist actions to gather information, switch roles, and share info, the resistance has to suss out the spies before the day is over, or all is lost.
