Hi PI-Fans, As of the past week, we've been getting a lot of calls regarding the availability of Codenames Pictures promos.

Trenchfoot Simulator

Hey PI-Fans, Thanks to the Hari Raya break, the working week is shorter than usual. (Does that mean the week is weak?) Technically this means you have (had?) more time for gaming. Anyway. On to the topic of gaming... we've got a couple of new title in for you this week. If you liked Cool Mini or Not's Grizzled, a unique game about the First World War where the focus isn't on military achievement, but instead on staying alive... well... things are about to get worse with the At Your Orders! expansion. Things have gone beyond simple survival as you undertake daring missions with your friends as you struggle to survive the Great War. In The Prodigals Club, you and your fellows are Victorian gentlemen in a friendly competition to see which of you can destroy his own social standing most thoroughly. Participate in this hilarious race to the bottom, or combine it with [...]
