Target! Maximum Firepower!

“General quarters. General quarters. All hands man your battle stations.”

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s a new week, which means kits also time for another slab of releases at Games @ PI.

By now, many of you wargamers have been salivating for Fantasy Flight Games’s new fleet scale wargame, and with Star Wars: Armada sailing into port, we’re happy to oblige. If dungeon crawling is more your speed, both Descent and the Lair of the Wyrm expansion have been restocked, so take up your sword and cast your spells as you venture into the darkness yet again. If mysteries and planning are your thing, look up Letters from Whitechapel, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert as you race against time to beat the board, or an even more insidious opponent – your friends. Of course, if you’re looking for something lighter, how about stopping by for a light snack with Sushi Go, an award winning card game simulating a conveyor belt sushi restaurant.

So… maybe chase away those Monday blues and get to gaming…

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI

Dem Big Heap Restocks…

Hey PI-Fans,

It’s been a long week and I’m still jetlagged after the round trip from the GAMA Trade Show, which means its the perfect time for reality to throw me a curve-ball.
Man… when the law of epic shipment attraction kicks in, it kicks really hard.

Board Games, Card Games and Hobby Supplies kinda all showed up at once.

We’re going to start off the week with a slab of Tabletop titles, some new some classic. Get your train fix with restocks of the modern classics Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe, devour entire groves of bamboo with Takenoko, win your own sultanate in Five Tribes, tell your tales with Dixit or just go speeding through the streets with Formula D.

Looking for something less… safe for work? Cards Against Humanity, along with its expansions, are back in stock and better than ever (and by better than ever, I mean worse). Grab those hard to find expansions like the Reject and the 90′s Nostalgia Pack and load up on expansions designed to make your party game for horrible people even more horrible.

And of course, there’s sleeves…

All at once. Together.

Ow.

My pain is your gain apparently.

Hey there PI-Fans,

For me at least, with the store’s fixation on π, Pi-Day seemed as good a point to look back as any.

In keeping with this theme, Games @ PI took a moment, together with a congregation of like minded gamers,  to remember our friend, customer and fellow gamer Adi F Jumali, holding a full minute of silence was held on March 14th at 1.59pm, as one of his infamous Space Marine Dreadnoughts was installed in a display.

We also took this opportunity to thank all who supported us over the years… with pies and a movie, as we remembered all whose contributions have keep the “Midpoint Orchard Games Shop” going for all these years.

While those who know me know I’ve been connected with the π brand for way longer than most, stepping in to manage the Games @ PI store is as new an experience for me as anything. For those who have endured my frenetic, manic style of keeping order, thanks for your patience. For those whose feet I’ve inadvertently stepped on along the way in an attempt to make the store a safe and friendly environment for all customers, I apologize. I’ve tried to do the best I can, and I hope the changes I’ve made along the way are more positive than negative.

Thank you all for your support and I look forward to seeing you all next March 14th.

 

- Kenneth, Manager, Games @ PI

PIE on PI-Day

Greetings PI-Fans,

For the longest time, it’s obvious that we’ve had a fascination with this particular irrational number. With 3.14 rolling around this year, observant fans might have noticed that we tagged a little teaser at the bottom of our last announcement and we’ve had more than a few inquiries about what exactly was going to happen on March 14th.

Well… Now is as good a time as any time to spill the beans.

Games @ PI has been incredibly lucky to have had the patronage of all our wonderful fans, and we’ve decided to show our appreciation to all of you who have supported us over the years.

 

On behalf of the management team, we’d like to take a minute on March 14th at 1.59 pm  to remember Adi F Jumali, long time customer and friend. We’d like to believe that he’d be amused by a tribute on 3.14159.

Our staff would also like to take the opportunity to do some of the things we’ve always wanted to do, so on the day itself, we’re rescinding the “No Food In Store” rule, to have some Pi(e) with all of our customers. Starting at 2 pm, we’ll be serving free Pies at the store along (while stocks last) with opening up our tables for some open gaming and the staff will be dragging out some of their own personal favorites.

At the same time, we’ll also be screening the extended edition of the classic Zombie Orpheus Entertainment produced geek movie “The Gamers: Hands of Fate”. Whether you’re a card gamer, role player, or anything in between, you’ll definitely get chuckle out of a movie filmed by gamers, for gamers.

So… Come on down this Saturday, PI-Fans.

I’ll try to save a Pie for you.

Will Cass get the girl? Will the land of Holden survive the coming war? The fate of the land of Countermay depends on the outcome of Cass’s CCG tournament…or is it the other way around?

 

When Cass  sets his eye on scoring a date with Natalie, one of the world’s top Romance of the Nine Empires players, she issues him a challenge: to show that he’s gamer enough to win this year’s national championship. Determined to prove that he can win any game, Cass enlists his long-suffering game buddy, Leo to teach him everything he needs to know about collectible card games. But The Legacy, a group of hardcore gamers with an evil plan, has raised an army of the undead to win the game for themselves

 

 

I don’t feel so good…

Hey PI-Fans,

Maybe it’s time to catch the gaming bug…

Especially since we’ve just restocked Matt Leacock’s classic co-op game Pandemic along with its The Cure and Contagion spin-offs… Fight to save the world from virulent diseases (or just destroy it all in Contagion), wander through the hedgerows in the French countryside in Carcassonne, struggle to survive with Robinson Crusoe on the Cursed Island or just lead your prehistoric tribe to victory in Stone Age

Hey PI-Fans,

How has your week been? With the weekend rolling in, I figure its about time to hang up my feet, relax a little and crack open a game or two with a friends. Need some ideas?

Turn to the life of a privateer with the launch of the Scum faction for the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game  or command the Extraterrestrial Combat Team’s terrible secret war against alien invaders with Eric Lang’s smash hit XCOM: The Board Game… Beat back the Mythos incursion in the Arkham Museum for with the Gates of Arkham expansion for Elder Sign or lead your people to dominance with the Civilization: The Board GameUnite the warring clans of Feudal Japan in Age of War or reload the classics and update your Netrunner decks…

It’s the weekend, folks.

Let’s take some time to do what we love.

Hey PI-Fans,

Looking for your Munchkin fix? We’ve heard your requests and expanded our Munchkin range. (Or as our staff like to say, “moar is moar gooder”) Alternatively, kick off the week with a slab of classic titles and some brand new games hot off the printing press as you go drilling for ore in “Super Motherload”, or lounge around in a bath-house in the Tokaido Crossroads Expansion.

So shake off those Monday blues, rev those engines, and flex those gaming muscles. It’s going to be a ride.

Hey PI-Fans,

As the New Year weekend draws to a close, the Games @ PI staff are bracing for the inevitable surge of shipments released from the shipping snarls.

Regardless, busy for us is good for you, as a coming in with the flood are a host of new titles  and well loved classics.

So whether you choose to hide contraband from the Sheriff of Nottingham or stalk the good Doctor through the halls in Get Lucky, on behalf of the Games @ PI staff, happy gaming in the year of the Goat.
