Hey PI-Fans, With the Coronavirus Recovery Phase chugging along, Games @ PI has reopened retail operations, but with the current restrictions on Entertainment Venues, for the safety of both our staff and customers, we have opted to close our gaming area for the time being.

Psychic Awakening: Pariah Previews

Hey PI-Fans,Far be it for me to pass up the obvious Monty Python reference about nobody expecting the Spanish Inquisition.*Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s time to talk about the final component to wrap up Games Workshop’s Psychic Awakening mega-event.While the Inquisition and the Necrons being the focus of the book came as no surprise to anyone, being the last factions yet to receive updates, the real surprise is the GW team plumbing the vault to bring us the return of Ephrael Stern, Heretic Saint and previously star of her own comic series in the original Warhammer magazine. You can as always pop by the store or drop our web team an email at webstore@pi.com.sg today for Games Workshop products and we’ll get you set up as soon as stock arrives! […]

Abandon All Artichokes Review

Gamewright games have always amused me. With titles like Sushi Go!, Go Nuts for Donuts and Forbidden Island, they’ve proven consistent entry points for new players looking to start playing board games, providing their own spin on the card drafting, simultaneous action and cooperative genres.Now, Gamewright is putting their own twisted little spin on deck-building games with Abandon All Artichokes, a classy little two-to-four player ‘deck-destruction’ game that provides a wonderful entry point into the genre. TLDR: Abandon All Artichokes is a speedy deck-building card game where players draft vegetable cards from a central garden and use their respective card abilities to rid their hand and deck of artichoke cards. The first player to draw a hand free of artichokes cards immediately wins the game. Simple rules make this easy to learn, but the game also possesses a take-that mechanism that allows players to ‘sabo’* each other, and a surprising [...]
