Star Wars X-Wing 2E Review

The Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game (or X-Wing 2E) has always been a tight little dogfight war-game – Not only does it possess the pedigree of the Star Wars universe, but it’s lovingly detailed pre-assembled and pre-painted ships adds an additional layer of allure for the collector.A tight ruleset and a movement mechanic that requires you to second guess your opponent before committing to your own movement can create some epic space dogfights between Star Wars stalwarts like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, but X-Wing 2E also draws upon the full scope of its massive universe as factions like the Resistance, First Order, Galactic Republic, Separatist Alliance take to the Stars, bringing fabled names like Padmé Amidala and Poe Dameron with them.Whether you’re a parent using X-Wing to experience a Galaxy Far Far Away with a child or a seasoned wargamer looking for a new dogfight experience, X-Wing 2E might [...]

New For You

Hey PI-Fans,The Games @ PI team has been hard at work slowly chewing through our backlog of titles and I’d like to seize on this opportunity to feature a pair of titles new to the webstore; Walking in Burano and Seikatsu: A Pet’s Life. Seikatsu: A Pet’s Life is an abstract tile playing game of adorable animals. Players plop down a mass of pets lounging on cushions, while trying to form large collections of animals to score. Placement becomes even more important in the end game as the arrangement of coloured cushions, relative to each player scores them additional points, so players must consider where they are putting down pets for proper points. Walking in Burano is a card drafting game about building and decorating houses in Burano, a beautiful island of Venice. In Walking in Burano, players draft floor cards featuring different personal decor items to build three floor [...]

The Savage Worlds RPG Review

Hey PI-Fans,Let’s just get this out of the way from the start. Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is an RPG, but Savage Worlds is not Dungeons & Dragons.If you want a role-playing system based on the pseudo-medieval high-fantasy Vancian-magic rooted assumptions that D&D is known for, you play D&D. This isn’t meant as a knock. D&D is a great system, but is also wholly unapologetic in the kind of story it wants to tell.As a ‘universal’ system, Savage Worlds… is less constrained than its RPG half-brother and a bit more manic in execution. TL;DR: Savage Worlds is a classless RPG system which uses a simple roll-against-target-number resolution system for streamlined roleplaying and fast combat. Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is the latest edition of the Savage Worlds RPG and provides a universal set of rules that can be easily adapted for Noir, Superhero, Pulp-Action, Military and Science-Fiction settings.

Sushi Go Review

Hey PI-Fans, We’re back once again with another set of food themed reviews. This time, Games @ PI is taking Gamewright’s modern classic Sushi Go out for a spin.Distilling the game mechanics of card drafting to an easily understandable format, Sushi Go is a fast paced and fun game set in a conveyor belt sushi restaurant. Given his last review was Ramen Fury, perhaps, the man is hungry, but Wesley is back to talk about Sushi Go and the Games @ PI Webstore!- Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager TL;DR: Simple fun for all ages, Sushi Go pits two to five players against each other to see who can have a better meal. Everyone is given a hand of sushi cards at the start of a round, which they will pick one to keep for themselves, then pass the rest to the player on the left or right. The process repeats [...]
