Do you believe in Magic?

Hey PI-Fans, Restocks are in. This time around, we're looking at Ticket to Ride Germany and a hefty slab of Tokaido, Carcassonne,  Pandemic and Codenames. Of course, we're also keeping the new stuff flowing as usual. So here's what's up. Did you ever want you brain teasers to go three dimensional? Get ready for an intense 3-dimensional puzzle game that will bend your mind. In this game you must arrange the blocks to match the "shadows" depicted on the challenge cards. Shadow Blocks contains three levels of difficulty and enough blocks for up to four players. Dice Bazaar is a family friendly, dice game for two to four players in which players compete to purchase the most valuable products at the bazaar.  On your turn, roll your six player dice. Use those dice, plus any items you've already purchased, to trade for goods like spices, tea kettles, pottery and gems, each [...]

A Dire Need Of Caffeine And A Snack…

Hey PI-Fans, I had something typed up. Then the internet went out. So. Imagine something witty and laden with dry humor. Then remember you're talking about Kenneth and remember that that would basically never happen ever. In lieu of a proper announcement, I figure that I should inform all those who preordered the L5R The Fires Within and The Ebb and Flow Dynasty packs that they are available for collection. The same applies with the Arkham Horror: The Boundary Beyond Mythos pack. Then there's the board games. In this fast-paced Ticket to Ride game, players race one another through the busy streets of New York City to visit the most prestigious Tourist Attractions and complete their Destination Tickets. Ticket to Ride: New York features the familiar gameplay from the Ticket to Ride game series — collect cards, claim routes, draw tickets — but on a scaled-down map of Manhattan that allows you to [...]

Strange Things Happen

Hey PI-Fans, Sometimes these things take a while. But they show up eventually. It's a LCG heavy release week, with a couple of strategic reprints as well. The Arkham Horror LCG gets bulkier with the Threads of Fate Mythos pack, and Return to the Night of the Zealot expansions, while the Tainted Lands and Breath of the Kami expansions for Legends of the Five Rings are in. We've also taken the opportunity to restock Catan, Cranium, Concept as well as reprints of the previously out-of-print Pandemic: On The Brink Expansion as well as NMBR 9 and Jungle Speed. So gaming. Yeah.

Grombindal’s Perilous Incline League

Hey PI-Fans, Whether you worship the God-Emperor, the God-King or you're a dirty heretic, xenophile, poncy aelf, glorious beardling... well... *AHEM* Apologies. Regardless, it's time to break out all those little plastic, resin and metal toy soldiers and hit the table with Grombindal's Perilous Incline League in tribute to that most baronial of beardlings and his magnificent magazine. Curious how this is going to work? Well look no further. Well... actually... look further, since if you stop here, this just isn't going to work. SIGN UP FOR THE LEAGUE AT GAMES @ PI. If you don't actually sign up, nobody is going to know you're actually on the ladder. And then nobody is going to be able to acknowledge your prowess and generalship. There are benefits to anonymity. This isn't one of them. PLAY GAMES OF WARHAMMER AT GAMES @ PI. Notice that we didn't specify either Warhammer 40,000 or Warhammer Age [...]

“Violence is what people do when they run out of good ideas.”

Hey PI-Fans, We've buried our staff under a flurry of dice, and they're frantically sorting them. In the meantime... well... I'm going to sit here and talk about games. Because it's what I do. Also dice. Because that's apparently ALSO what I do. Especially these little fellas who have apparently earned the nickname of 'Kueh Lapis' dice amongst the staff. ______________________________________________ Are you good with nautical nonsense? Can you kep a seacret? That's seaaaa-crets. You get it. Try to collect four of the same card before any of the other teams, then pass a secret signal to your teammate. If your partner sees your signal and yells, "YOU'VE GOT CRABS," you GAIN a point. If an opponent sees your signal and yells, "You've got crabs," you LOSE a point. The team with the most crustaceans effectively wins the game. The Expanse Board Game is a game of politics, conquest, and [...]
