New Release Spotlight: Trial by Trolley!

Hey PI-fans, And once again, it's Friday! Grab your friends, grab some snacks! We have a New Release that will leave you in stitches: Trial by Trolley!   Trial by Trolley        You've probably heard about the infamous moral dilemma: an out of control car is speeding down the road and is about to hit 2 groups of people - pre-schoolers or slow moving elderly. Which would you pick? In Trial By Trolley, one player is the Trolley Conductor while the other players must convince the Trolley Conductor which group of people should he/she kill! At the start of the round, 2 innocent cards are played face up on 2 separate tracks eg. 'A woman in labour in a car' or 'the world's greatest physicist'. Players than play 2 more innocent cards on both tracks to raise the stakes eg. 'babies in a wading pool'. Next, each side [...]

New Release Spotlight: Silver Dagger

Hey PI-fans, We're half way through the week! And with that, a new release: Silver Dagger! But what's the difference between this Silver and Silver Coin that released back a few months ago? Let's find out!   All the Silver games generally play similarly: You are all village chiefs, all your villages have been overrun by werewolves! Your goal is to draft your hand to obtain villagers with the lowest 'threat' level. The higher the numerical value, the higher the werewolf threat. Silver Dagger features even more interesting villager cards like the Debt Collector, the Spy, the Furry to name a few! Each unique villager changes up the game play and you can mash other boxes of Silver together to form your own unique Silver game!  Combo your villagers, backstab your friends! Because hey, you don't want werewolves to eat your villagers! Totally fine if they eat others! 2-4 Players, [...]

Support Local: Broken Hearts

Hey PI-Fans, It's the start of a new week! We've got a brand new Singapore designed game that arrived in store today: Broken Hearts!   Broken Hearts   "Never mind, I'll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you, too "Don't forget me, " I beg I remember you said "Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead"" 'Someone Like You' -- Adele   Ah Love. Falling in love is wonderful, being in love is magical and breaking up is absolutely devastating. Thankfully, there's a card game to cope with the pain of breaking up! In 'Broken Hearts', players are individuals looking for love and are competing to finish a set of 5 Heart cards. Play a matching Heart card as another player to 'link' them. Players must also perform the action as said on the card with the matching player! But that's not [...]

Horrible Game Experiences: Collectible Card Games

Hey PI-Fans, Continuing our series of Horrible Game Experiences; last week, we talked about Awful Board Game Experiences. This week, it's all about Collectible Card Games. The joy of CCGs is they can be played quickly and anywhere: over a lunch break, after school, a short session after work. But as with all games, things sometimes turn iffy and at times, get very awful. Presenting the worst ever CCG Experiences ever! People Who Are Rough With Your Cards: The Furious 'Poker' and The Ripple Shuffler Vernon recalls that some players have a tendency to poke other people's cards very hard to the point it's fingernail to cardboard. 'Ah I attack that one!' PO-PO-POKE It's like 'don't hurt my cards!' Jack especially dislikes people who ripple shuffles his cards and violently. You Get Schooled by An Arrogant Player Getting schooled is one thing, but getting schooled by a douchy uber-player is [...]

Staff Spotlight: Vernon!

Hey PI-Fans, How are you all doing today? For the month of October, we're shining the spotlight on our awesome staff that keep the wheels of PI turning! You know him as the friendly Warhammer and Pokemon guy, it's our man Vernon! I sat down and had a chat with Vernon to find out all about his Life@PI (and his secret back story) Q: How Did You Get Started With The Tabletop Hobby Mainly the big one is that I've always been playing games for a while. So definitely Video Games and all that were the first few to get started with. Discovering Warhammer I think my first major exposure to Warhammer was when I was 8 years old, in 1998. So that was when I believe when Third Edition was the thing? It was 2 things that happened, I can't remember what came first. One was I had hand-me-down [...]

Horrible Game Experiences: Board Games

Hey PI-Fans, It's October! The month of exams, Halloween scares and then some. We've all been there before: table top games are meant to be fun and engaging for your friends and family. But sometimes, your game session becomes unfun for you, others and sometimes, gets downright traumatic. Here are some examples of When Game Experiences Go Wrong: Board Games Edition!   Everyone Gangs Up On You Perhaps everyone knows you're the best player around because you're good at strategy. Everyone just decides to take you down by concentrating all their attacks on you by lobbing penalty after penalty on you just to see you suffer. Or for absolutely no reason at all, everyone accuses you of being the 'Werewolf' even though you did absolutely nothing wrong and no one has any proof. Perhaps everyone was just having a really bad day and wanted to target their aggression on you. [...]
