Age of Sigmar Skaventide – Early Bird Preorders

Hey PI-Fans, Greetings Man-Things, the time of the Vermindoom is close. Yes-yes. Kill-Kill Storm-Things. Games Workshop has been very very uncoy about the fact that the Age of Sigmar 4th Edition is upon us, in all it's Skaven vs Stormcast glory. The massive Skaventide launch box comes with an expected price tag to match as well - as part of one of their website lucky draw declarations, they've valued the box as follows in the fine print. "The value of the contents of each prize is GBP £160 (one hundred and sixty) / AUD $450(four hundred and fifty) Australian Dollars/ USD $265 (two hundred and sixty five US dollars/ EU €210 (two hundred and ten) Euros." No idea what their SGD price is going to be, but we expect it to clock in somewhere between SGD$400-450 ballpark.   TLDR: ORDER SKAVENTIDE AND PLACE DEPOSIT. GET AN ADDITIONAL 10% OFF FINAL [...]

Bigger Editions? – 04/06/24

Hey PI-Fans, There are times when a game is hard to improve on. Spiel de Jahres (Game of the Year) winners like Codenames and Kingdomino for instance are already incredibly elegant titles mechanically... so... well... you can always make them bigger. Coming in at double the regular size of regular Codenames and Kingdomino sets, the XXL and Giant edition of the games function well in party environments, making them excellent with big groups.  If you're looking for a more visually striking gameplay experience, mayhaps consider whether a bigger box will be more your speed.

Canvas, Canvas Reflections, Canvas Finishing Touches – 14/5/24

Hey PI-Fans, If you're anything quite like me, you're a complete sucker for a game that leans in on a theme. The Canvas series is one of those games. As a painter competing in an art competition, players need to collect cards representing different art elements, holding on to the ones containing features the match the randomly selected judging criteria of the round. The twist here is that said cards are themselves clear plastic, allowing them to be overlaid on top of each other creating custom art pieces. A symbol bar at the bottom of each card displays which art elements are present on each card, with the potential for new layers to cover up or overwrite lower cards. Canvas comes with it's expansions Reflection and Finishing Touches, each of which provides additional elements to a game of Canvas in addition to combining into a stunningly beautiful triptych of art [...]

As always this comes with three scenarios of increasing difficulty, from the Detective Noir themed Hollywood Confidential, the space adventure W.A.F.F.'s Odyssey and Restart, which we can't help but hearkens back to the adventure puzzle games of early computing with a name that evokes the television cartoon classic Reboot.

Dragomino and a Kingdomino Family Reunion – 04/05/24

Hey PI-Fans, It's been a while since Dragomino, the 2021 Kinderspiel des Jahres winner  offspring of the 2017 Spiel des Jahres Winner Kingdomino has been on our shelves, but it's back (along with it's proud parent and relatives)!   Dragomino features gameplay similar to Kingdomino, but with gameplay suitable for younger players. At the start of a round, you reveal four domino tiles, with each domino featuring two types of landscapes. Starting with whoever has the mommy dragon figure, players draft a tile and add it to their landscape. If the newly placed tile matches the landscape of one or more adjacent tiles, then you draw an egg tile for that type of landscape and place it face up where those tiles meet. Some eggs feature a baby dragon, which is worth 1 point; others feature an empty shell, which allows you to take the mommy dragon, giving you first [...]

Escape Rooms For All Ages – 26/4/24

Hey PI-Fans, This week's announcement is going to be a short one - as I have discovered to my chagrin, having a phone fail on can affect the regular posting demeanor.  That said, rain, sun, phone bricking itself doesn't stop the rest of the team from keeping the games chugging along.  This week sees us pop out a pair of Escape Room themed titles, with the arrival of a pair of boxes for UNLOCK! Kids (Detective Stories and Stories from the Past) as well as the Lord of the Rings Shadows Over Middle Earth EXIT set. If you want to take a cooperative take on the pocket box escape room genre for you or the little ones, this might be an opportune moment. - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager (under technical duress) Hopefully back to regular posting SOON TM.

Small Bites, Fast Games – 16/04/24

Hey PI-Fans, The last time we dredged up a pile of games, when you have a big box like Wyrmspan leading the charge, it's fairly safe to say that was a big week. This week's 'newstuff' focus appears to be a tad smaller though, beginning with a restock of the pocket sized trick-taker Sea, Salt and Paper. Also part of the pocket sized line up for the week is the Exploding Kittens Company's new speed reaction and time management game Danger Danger, Oink Games' tiny push your luck game Durian and the card memorization game of animal waster Who Did It.  This week's titles are aggressively tiny, so if you fancy something you can toss into a backpack so you have something handy should the need arise, all of them make  excellent choices.   Today the jungle fruit shop is busy and bustling once again. The shop's clerks, having too [...]
