Reloading the Pokemart Shelves – A Restock of Pokemon TCG Entry Level Products

Hey PI-Fans, With the release of the Silver Tempest set for Pokemon last week, we've seen an increased uptick in interest in the Pokemon Trading Card Game. With Ash Ketchum finally rocking up to the podium as Pokemon Champion after 25 years of experience in the field (a 10 year old with 25 years of on-the-job experience) and the upcoming launch of a new Pokemon video game, the fact remains that if a kid can become Pokemon Champion, anyone can play the card game, and with this wave of product, getting into this long-running card game is never easier with a series of starter decks, tiered to player experience. Of course, if you're just after Silver Tempest Boosters or the Elite Trainer Box, we've got those too, along with mini tin packs containing two boosters that are perfectly sized to ensure that a young one's cards travel safely. A glimmer [...]

Swords & Stationery and Games @ PI Collab: Roll Persuasion

Hey PI-Fans, Last Sunday, we ran the Roll Persuasion – How to be an Effective Communicator With Your Child workshop at Games @ PI with Swords & Stationery.

Taking Photos of Pokemon – S&S Charizard Ultra Premium Collection and Picture Perfect

Hey PI-Fans, Another week chugging along, another week of new products hitting the shelves. We're taking a brief break from out MTG Learn to Play Event (come and play with us btw) to take another TCG out for a spin. We've gotten our allocation of Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Ultra-Premium Collection—Charizard (that's a mouthful), featuring the original 'not-dragon' dragon Charizard, so if you want to secure yours, shoot us a call ASAP. On the board game front, Picture Perfect has hit the shelves, a chaotic photography board game of wrangling participants with often contradictory desires into the best possible positions to take an event photo in a game that will have you shoving around physical standees to fulfil the demands of the photo participants to the best of your ability. They're weird bedfellows to arrive at the same time, but this does little to detract from them being awesome [...]

Stardew Valley and an Empire Alone

Hey PI-Fans, Strange how shipping works in this day and age. You plan out arrival schedules and this absolutely wonky combination of things just drops out of the ether together despite being staggered orders. After being lost in the warp and having basically gone around the world, our shipment of Empire Alone sourcebooks for BattleTech has finally been delivered after delays. Also somehow arriving together is another batch of ConcernedApe's Stardew Valley board game, a cooperative board game set in the same setting of the bestselling indie farming life-sim. The first time we had it in, it basically just entirely disappeared, so we recommend grabbing your copy ASAP. Otherwise, there's plenty of restocks of classic titles like Sushi Go Party that people have been clamoring about. Here's to a great weekend, folks. - Kenneth From the new ilKhan on Terra comes word to the Wolf Empire of their Clan’s victory. [...]

Random Roleplaying Restocks

Hey PI-Fans, Just a minor heads up that a small carton has drifted into the store, containing a smattering of esoterica. The anime themed Tabletop Roleplaying Games for both Konosuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World and Goblin Slayer are back on our shelves, though we have no idea how long that will last for. In addition, we've acquired a small supply of Hero Kids, a family friendly Role Playing Game system designed for parents to share the joys of roleplaying with their young ones. The Hero Kids system, of course, is also the preferred system of choice for the upcoming Young Minds, Steel Hearts: Designing and Running an RPG Session for Kids workshop to be conducted by Swords & Stationery at Games @ PI on Sun, 13 November 2022. Together with it's companion lecture Roll Persuasion: How to Be an Effective Communicator With Your Child, S&S hopes to pass [...]

WARHAMMER AOS SPECIAL ARMY DEALS Hey PI-Fans, So I'm running the store today and I went digging. And to my consternation, here are a bunch of X'Mas Battleforces that weren't collected. It's time for me to be random. The Mortal Realms of Age of Sigmar have seen a lot of upheaval over the years. Then again, given the setting's central theme appears to be "This is Valhalha on mind altering substances" (sometimes literally in the case of the Gloomspite Gitz grots.)  Here's a bunch of army boxes specially priced to get you started designed with the Age of Sigmar Wargame.   Ossiarch Bonereapers Mortisan Tithe Echelon ($230) 20 Mortek Guard Mortek Crawler Gothizzar Harvester 3 Necropolis Stalkers/Immortis Guard Mortisan Boneshaper Mortisan Soulreaper Age of Sigmar Core Rulebook   Lumineth Realm Lords Vanari Shining Host ($230) 10 Auralan Wardens 5 Dawnriders 5 Bladelords Lord Regent Bannerblade Starshard Ballista Age of Sigmar [...]
