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. [...]

Support Local: Bye Bye Virus

Hey PI-Fans, Welcome to Monday! As we all anxiously wait for Phase 3, check out this snazzy local game: Bye Bye Virus! As featured in Straits Times, Yasmine Khater and Denise Lim made the game during Circuit Breaker and successfully funded it via crowd-funding!          Bye Bye Virus pits players in a virus situation where your goal is to keep healthy and stay safe! Collect 5 protection items like face masks, hand sanitizers, gloves and soap to win! But in all craziness, situations change: players could hoard essentials like toilet rolls, cup noodles, canned food. Players could play a government card and change the rules and make other players do silly tasks. If you're not careful, you could get caught by the cops for breaking quarantine or lose cards if a player catches you touching your face! A zany game that everyone can enjoy! Because, why mope [...]

Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker Review

Hey PI-Fans, It's Friday again! Wesley Tay's got a new game review which is perfect for fans of Social Deduction games! So everyone is playing Among Us, that trending online game where you eject imposters (or friends) into space if you suspect them of killing your friends.    Why not play a higher level Social Deduction game where you can do that AND earn power and resources? In a nutshell: Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker is everything you love in a Social Deduction game with added resource management. So not only do you have fun scheming with fellow conspirators or fighting for the King/Queen, you do have to worry about resources at the end of the day. You also don't get 'ejected' from the game if you're a conspirator so play can continue right till the end! Get this game at our webstore!   Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker What it's About [...]
