UNLOCK! Extraordinary Adventures

Hey PI-Fans, Just a minor shoutout that the new UNLOCK! set Extraordinary Adventures box is on the shelf. 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. Unlock! is a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that uses a simple system which allows you to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles. Play Unlock! to embark on great adventures, while seated at a table using only cards and a companion app that can provide clues, check codes, monitor time remaining, etc. Unlock! Extraordinary Adventures includes three separate scenarios for you to explore: Restart Crearia is in shambles! Enter this 90 ’s video game to rescue the royal couple and restore order to their [...]

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 [...]

X-Men: Mutant Insurrection

Hey PI-Fans, To me, my X-Men! Time to slip on those rose-tinted Ruby Quartz glasses and take a trip down memory lane in this cooperative dice game of comic book battles! With the return of the Marvel's Mutants to the small screen in X-Men 97, consider picking up a copy of the X-Men: Mutant Insurrection cooperative board game. If you're up for a superhero tussle with a bunch of friends, maybe it's time to strap yourselves into the Blackbird and take the fight to the rogues gallery of villains that threaten Mutantkind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WGn9j8Lv1U

Royalty Dominos – 19/3/24

Hey PI-Fans, March trundles ever onwards, with a stack of Blue Orange titles plonking onto the shelf. If you're a fan of the modern classing Kingdomino, it's back on the shelf along with the sequel Queendomino and the Age of Giants expansion that increases the maximum number of players in-game to five. Also new on the shelf is Moon River, Bruno Cathala's newest swing at the Kingdomino formula, which sees players taking on the role of cattle ranchers with customizable jigsaw-style build-your-own-domino pieces. If you wanted something less cerebral, Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza might be up your alley. In this reaction based game, players rush to slap their hands on a stack of cards if the card on the stack matches the chant.  Together with the standalone variants of Taco Back Goat Cheese Pizza and Taco Hat Cake Gift Pizza, if you're in the market for a neat little [...]
