Support Local: An Interview with the Creators of Bye Bye Virus!

Hey PI-fans, How's your day going? Yup, the Pandemic is still around but we can all still have a laugh about it! We had the good fortune to interview the 2 creators of Bye Bye Virus: Denise Lim and Yasmine Khater!    Q: What was the main spark that inspired you both to make a card game about keeping yourself safe from the virus? We wanted to do something useful with ourselves when we were stuck during the Circuit Breaker! During that period, we were both frustrated with the misinformation that was going around about how to stay safe against viruses, with people dressing up in dinosaur suits (as a joke) to hoarding toilet paper. We wanted to develop a fun way to teach kids and adults about good hygiene and socially responsible behavior, and used Bye Bye Virus as an outlet for that. We also built in a lot [...]

Getting Ahead of the Curve: A Warhammer Christmas

Hey PI-Fans, You know what's the worst thing about Games Workshop's Holiday Bundles? They're not here yet. Under such circumstances, since we can't recommend time travel as a solution (Editors Note: Attempting to alter the space time continuum to get your plastic faster usually ends in tears), we have a slightly less worse option then attempting to tie reality into pretzel shaped knots. For those of you who aren't prepared to wait for the Christmas Battleforces to get their army started, here's how we'll do this.   We're extending our 30% Preorder Discount to existing Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar BattleForces and Start Collecting Boxes.   Contact us at webstore@pi.com.sg or swing by Games @ PI to get your army started! Got your attention? Good. Here are a couple of standouts.   Get your angry on with the Blood Angels Crimson Spear Strike Force. A Blood Angel Terminator [...]

What’s Behind The Curtain: A Warhammer Christmas

Hey PI-Fans, As 2020 grinds towards a close, it's time for the inevitable avalanche of plastic out of Nottingham as Games Workshop prepares their Christmas bundles. While the internet is no doubt screaming about leaks and the savings, we're currently not at liberty to discuss them... YET. While we can't spill details, what we CAN say is that we'll be taking orders SOON (TM) ('Soon' being Saturday, 28th November, assuming a shell doesn't find the magazine) and we'll be slapping some rather attractive preorder discounts on these army deals. So belt up, folks. As with all holiday product, we expect quantities to be limited and we'll be doling out the deals in a first-come-first-served fashion, so if you want to stake your place in the line for any of the battleforces, drop us a mail at webstore@pi.com.sg so we can keep you up to date with the preorder promotions when [...]

Support Local: An Interview with Board Game Designer, Daryl Chow!

Support Local: An Interview with the Creators of Broken Hearts!

Hey PI-fans, A good Thursday morning to you! Recently, we were able to bring in a new Singapore made game: Broken Hearts! We also had the pleasure to sit and have a chat with the creators of the game: Joey Teh (on the right) and Seik Yee Thoo! (on the left)    Q: Tell us about the game and how it came to be? Joey: The idea of the game came from a break up I had with my boyfriend at that point of time. He left without a word and it was hard for me because there was no closure. We were going out for about a year. I was really very depressed but I couldn't bring myself to talk about this to my friends, to my colleagues and even with my family too. So it was only till 1 fateful day was I willing to share my story [...]

New Release Spotlight: Metro X

Hey PI-fans, Welcome to Tuesday! If you love subways, MRTs and all things trains, you're going to love this one - Metro X!       In Metro X, you and your friends are all travelling on various metro lines.
