Hello PI-Fans,

The more perceptive of you might have already noticed this, but I figured I should reiterate that Eric Lang, designer of XCOM: The Board Game and  the Warhammer 40,000 Conquest LCG will be at Games @ PI on Tuesday, 3rd February to play some games from 6pm onwards. While many fans have already expressed interest in playing XCOM with it’s designer, we still have space to squeeze in a few more players at the table.

Calls us during working hours (+65 
6734 3858), or come down physically to make a booking and we’ll add your name to the list. On the day itself, we’re going to cycle through tables based on the order of registration.

We’re running out of slots, so the last few are up on a first-come first-served basis.

IGN Event Wrapup – Star Wars #1 Launch Event @ Cathay Singapore

 

Hey PI-Fans,

Remember the Star Wars event we ran at the Cathay on the 17th together with our friends at Atom Comics, Fat Boys Burger Bar and justsaying.sg? Well, IGN Asia sure did! It’s always nice to see our hobby recognized and portrayed positively in mainstream coverage.

Check out the article for yourself after the link below:

STAR WARS #1 LAUNCH EVENT @ CATHAY SINGAPORE

Hello, Commander…

In response to the Alien threat, this council of nations has chosen to activate the XCOM Project…

If the man in the shadow was to represent me, the man would have to be a magnitude fatter. It’s probably not me. Check below for details.

Hello, PI-Fans…

With today being the launch dates, for XCOM: The Board Game, Warhammer Conquest: The Gift of the Ethereals and Netrunner: Order and Chaos, judging by today’s releases, it is generally a bad time to be a Human.

Regardless of whether you face invasions (Xenos, alien or otherwise), or are just being slowly crushed beneath the Weyland Corporation’s jackbooted heel, the end-conclusion is the same… things are going to get bad for a while. This isn’t to say that everything is lost, after all, the White Scars Space Marines are coming to Conquest, Anarchs are hellbent on taking the fight to the MAN and Commanders from all over will launch their own independent XCOM organizations to resist the alien invasion…

It might be a bad day for Humanity, but it’s going to be a heck of an awesome day as a gamer.

Releasing Today:

(28/1/15)

 

XCOM: THE BOARD GAME



 

In XCOM: The Board Game, you and up to three friends assume the roles of the leaders of the elite, international organization known as XCOM. It is your job to defend humanity, quell the rising panic, and turn back the escalating alien invasion coordinated by the game’s innovative, free digital companion app.

Where the world’s militaries have failed to stand against the alien invaders, you must succeed. To do so, you must make strategic use of the resources available to you. You must launch Interceptors to shoot down alien UFOs, assign soldiers to key missions, research alien technology, and use that technology to defend your base, all while you try to keep the world from collapsing just long enough that you can coordinate one final mission to repel the invaders for good.

Destroy UFOs. Research alien technology. Defend your base. Uncover the alien invasion plan. Should you fail, humanity is doomed.

 


 

NETRUNNER: ORDER AND CHAOS EXPANSION


 

Where is humanity headed? Jack Weyland wants to take us to the stars, but what will be the human cost of his efforts? Order and Chaos, the third deluxe expansion for Android: Netrunner, pits three new subversive Anarchs against the bleeding edge ice and operations with which the Weyland Consortium intends to safeguard its most far-sighted and futuristic ambitions.

Its 165 new cards (three copies each of fifty-five individual cards) amplify the high-stakes cyberstruggles between the developers at Weyland Consortium and those destructive Anarchs who would rather see the corporation’s utopian ambitions reduced to ashes than raised to the heavens upon the backs of the downtrodden. Accordingly, you’ll find a slate of new identities, tech, and tools that enhance these factions’ core strengths, even as they permit the exploration of new themes and decks. The Weyland Consortium gains a host of new, advanceable ice, as well as new strategies for protecting their agendas and assets while raking in bundles of quick credits. Anarchs, on the other hand, unleash a plethora of destructive new programs and resources that can tear apart anything a Corp can put together, whether they use them to further their humanitarian efforts or simply vent the pent-up rage of a disenfranchised youth.

Finally, Order and Chaos presents fans of every faction with six different neutral cards that they can use to safeguard their servers, evade tags, and advance their economies.


 

WARHAMMER 40000 CONQUEST – GIFT OF THE ETHEREALS EXPANSION


 

Lead your warriors into battle and inspire them to new heights of greatness with Gift of the Ethereals, the third War Pack in the “Warlord” cycle for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest!

This sixty-card expansion offers a full playset of each unit, support, event, and attachment, continuing the main themes of the Warlord cycle and giving you the cards you need to conquer the Traxis sector. In this War Pack, you’ll find more Nurgle units for the armies of Chaos, powerful Eldar Psykers, new battle tactics for the Space Marines, and more. No matter which factions you play, you’re sure to find new cards to swell your armies and revolutionize your warlord’s role forever.

In addition, this War Pack introduces a new Tau warlord and his signature squad, creating a brand-new style of play for the Tau.


 

Aaaaannnnndddd…

Now that everyone else is gone...

BONUS ROUND.

Help him out, won’t you?

Okay PI-Fans, here’s how it’s going to work. Our staff are going to have a table booking list for people who want to reserve a slot at the table with Eric to play XCOM: The Board Game. Since we haven’t actually figured out how to clone Eric and he has yet to master multilocation, it goes without saying that slots are limited. We have 3 table openings at 6pm and 3 table openings at 8pm.

Calls us during working hours (+65 6734 3858), or come down physically to make a booking and we’ll add your name to the list. On the day itself, we’re going to cycle through tables based on the order of registration.

Book early to avoid disappointment.

A Deluge of Stock

“Life comes at us in waves. We can’t predict or control those waves, but we can learn to surf”
― Dan Millman

Hey PI-Fans,

I must admit, I had hopes that our stock would arrive in staggered waves, as originally planned. Shows what I know about the Law of Shipment Attraction. Still, I have to admit that I’ve never seen four different delivery guys show up at our doorstep almost simultaneously. So yeah… Today was “interesting” in the ancient Chinese proverb sort of way.

Regardless, we’re all still (mostly) standing after the near tidal wave of releases. Whether you’re looking for a new title to pass the time or an entertaining classic, perhaps you’ll find something to keep yourself entertained along the way.

Hey PI-Fans,

The Law of Shipment Attraction posits that no matter how well a retailer spaces their orders, they’ll somehow all arrive in a simultaneously in a single massive unmanageable heap. Since we’re currently, experiencing the start of such a surge, you’ll be hearing a lot from us over the next week as we roll out all the new shineys.

Anyway, we might as well kick this all off with a very miniature-centric Saturday.

Enjoy the Skaven releases, Man-Thing.

X-Wing @ The Cathay

DOES THIS LOOK LIKE THE FACE OF MERCY?!

Ayden Lee’s E-Wing and X-Wing flight cut apart many opponents that day…

 

Hey PI-Fans!

Over the weekend, together with our friends at Atom Comics, Fat Boys Burger Bar and justsaying.sg, Games @ PI hosted an X-Wing Tournament to celebrate the release of Star Wars #1 by Marvel Comics!

Held at the Cathay, 16 deadly commanders took to space, dueling in the presence of Lord Vader himself – in the end, the Empire swept away all opposition, Imperial Commanders Ruben Lee and Aaron Wong grinding down all opposition to claim the 1st and 2nd places while the Rebel Alliance took 3rd and 4th with Soh Zi Yuan and Ayden Lee (our youngest participant at 11-years of age) dazzling the crowds with flamboyant maneuvering in their A and E-Wing fighters.

In the end, a grand time was had by all, happy players departed with bags of comics and plenty of fancy swag, courtesy of Games @ PI and Atom Comics.

We’re looking forward to doing this again soon.

 

Scramble all wings!

“Sometimes I think the universe just waits for me to get cocky.”
- Egon Spenglar, The REAL Ghostbusters

Dear PI-Fans.

I’m never admitting “I’m bored” ever again. Here are a trio of words I never thought I’d have to use in conjunction: “The Ceiling Flooded”. We’re still open today, and the staff are fine, but please pardon the mess in the hobby area while we deal with the fallout.

In the meantime, we’ve got a couple of new Black Library novels for your reading pleasure:
