The Eric Lang Games @ PI Super Secret Playtest

PLAYTEST ERIC LANG’S NEW PROTOTYPES ON 16/1/16

Hi PI-Fans,

This handsome fellow is Eric Lang. Eric Lang is a game designer, responsible for titles such the A Game of Thrones LCG and XCOM The Board Game.

Eric is going to be in Singapore to play-test two of his brand new game prototypes at Games @ PI on Saturday, 16th January from 4 pm to 7 pm.

During this 3 hour event, participants will get a hands on session with two of Eric’s game prototypes for an hour each, as well as a post-game feedback session with Eric himself.

As these games are still in the testing stages and unavailable in any store, participants will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement and no close up photos of the components are allowed.

Want to get a look behind-the-scenes of our industry at work? Grab your seat at our Eventbrite Registration Page.

We’re limited to 10 seats at Eric’s table, so register fast!

Unable to make the entire session?  Eric Lang will still be available for signings from 4 pm to 7 pm. Drop by and get your board games signed by the master himself!

On Your Tail…

Villainous rats have allied with vicious hunting birds to pillage the humble mouse settlement across Meanderfield. But look! Brave mice, mounted on starlings and blue jays, swoop in to wage war against this evil alliance! The Downwood Militia soars into action against the Vermin Raiders!

Tail Feathers is an exciting new miniature skirmish wargame set in the rich world of Mice and Mystics! Outwit and outfly your opponent as you wing your way to victory in the aerial battles to secure peace and safety for the Downwood Forest.

 

______________________________________________________

Tail Feathers offers cinematic gameplay and a fresh, whimsical setting for tabletop skirmish gaming. Players must balance the use of both flying and ground units to achieve victory. Tail Feathers is a stand-alone game, not a Mice and Mystics expansion, but you can use your Mice and Mystics: Sorrow and Remembrance miniatures in Tail Feathers right out of the box.

One-Man-Army-Corp

Hey PI-Fans,

Today, I single-handedly launched an escort carrier, did the Kessel Run, returned to Hoth, cured diseases, ran from zombies, cracked the code, bribed the sheriff, saved the world, became a knight and visited the Sword Coast.

Before noon.

How’s your day going?

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Currently Exhausted

 

Watch the spymaster bang their head on the table as they try to wrangle their team of uncooperative agents. In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to identify agents from their team via their codenames while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.

Originally introduced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation as a bulk freighter, the sturdy Gozanti hull was re-purposed by the Galactic Empire. Now serving as escort carriers, refitted Gozanti Cruisers now hunt agents of the Rebellion across the galaxy, disgorging their flights of TIE Fighters to quell resistance wherever it can be found.

Originally the site of a crushing Imperial victory over the Rebel Alliance, the frozen world of Hoth has once again become a battleground, as Rebel Heroes step forward to challenge Imperial Snowtrooper control of the icy wastes.

It’s baaaaacccckkk… *MIC DROP*

Happy New Year, PI-Fans,

And welcome to 2016. Or given I’m posting this via remote upload, greetings from the past? How is the future? Are there any major developments I should know about? Is future me just as pedantic and annoying? I MUST KNOW.

Anyway, in the future, all signs point to several new titles should become available for purchase.

Lets go over a few shall we?

– Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Temporal Paradox

From the mind of Antoine Bauza, designer of the award winning 7 Wonders, comes  7 Wonders DUEL; a head to head re-implementation of the  modern classic for two-players. Race to crush your opponent militarily or speed your way to victory through scientific developments. And in a pinch, leave your mark upon the world with a wonder that reshapes the game itself and grants you powerful abilities.

In Colt Express: Horses & Stagecoach, your bandits now ride. Gallop after the speeding train atop a horse, on take a detour to punt the stagecoach guard (and his nasty shotgun) off his lofty perch.  Kidnap VIPs from the stagecoach, grab loot from the strongbox and  raise a ruckus as the 2015 Spiel des Jahres winning game of train robbery just got that much better.

 

Unleash your inner Victorian sensibilities, and always remember to stay dapper as Munchkin Steampunk pulls into the station! Blending all the zaniness of Munchkin and the gonzo pseudo-Victorian stylings of Girl Genius’ Phil Foglio, grab your gears, put on your top hat, whack the monsters, and grab the treasure . . . with the power of SCIENCE!  Bully!

In T.I.M.E. Stories, the T.I.M.E Agency protects humanity by preventing temporal faults and paradoxes from threatening the fabric of our universe. As a temporal agent, you and your team will be sent into the bodies of beings from different worlds or realities to successfully complete the missions given to you.  Take possession of local hosts to navigate in a given environment and marshal your resources as you manipulate the timeline in search of that ever elusive “perfect” run.

Happy New Year!

The new year is upon us! Happy 2016 everyone! Here’s a little update at what’s been going on at Games @ PI in the month of December.

On December 4th 2015, our friend from Poland, Tytus, joined us here at our store for a little game of Warhammer 40,000 with our staff, Aaron! Despite some delays with the flight, Tytus managed to make it to our store with his little army of Blood Angels!

Tytus' sanguinary priest is well painted despite his busy schedule.

The 750 point game was didn’t take too long and although Tytus lost the battle, both parties concluded their game with a firm handshake. If you’re interested in an in-depth battle report on the game that Tytus and Aaron, you can check out Tytus’ wargaming blog here!

The two posed for a picture at the end of the game.

At the end of the night, Tytus had to go off. Although it was a short exchange, everyone had a great time getting to know each other.

Tytus is a travel blogger and he runs his own miniature painting blog! You can find out more about him here!

Reloading The Store

Hey PI-Fans,

How have your holidays been? With the Christmas rush being what it was,  I’m glad that the restocks are in.

In addition to reloading our shelves with classics like Dixit, Love Letter, Coup G54, The Resistance, Munchkin and Fluxx, we’ve gotten a slew of new titles which should see you through to the new year.

5… 4… 3… 2… 1… THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO! Race to the rescue with International Rescue in Matt Leacock’s new cooperative masterpiece based on the classic 1960’s supermarionation TV Series. Outwit the Hood’s machinations with the assistance of the five Tracy Brothers and International Rescue’s London agent, Lady Penelope as International Rescue speeds from disaster to disaster in the Thunderbirds board game.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we got a bucket of swirling dogfights between X-Wings and TIE Fighters. Now, bring these lethal fighters to the tabletop  with the T-70 X-Wing and TIE/FO Expansion for the X-Wing Miniatures Game.

The Marvel Legendary Secret Wars continues in the Marvel Legendary Card Game unleashing a whole new slew of Heroes and Masterminds onto the tabletop as fan favorite characters such as Spider-Gwen and Dr. Punisher the Soldier Supreme launch themselves into the chaos of the Battleworlds in the third large box expansion for the award winning Legendary card game.

Think you’re ready for the mean streets, chummer?  Think you’re better than milk-runs? How about some High-Caliber Ops then? The High-Caliber Ops expansion for the Shadowun Crossfire Deckbuilding Game escalates the action with new gear, guns and spells for the black market and a host of all new nasty threats designed to put the damper on even the most experienced team of runners.

Want a bite-sized Munchkin Experience you can take with you? Or just looking for another pack to toss into your ever growing stack of Munchkin cards? Munchkin Christmas Lite is a standalone card game for 3-4 players designed for both players new to the Munchkin experience while containing all new cards that are right at home in any classic Munchkin set. Small and portable, it’s the perfect Munchkin for a player on the go!
