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.

The Team has been hard at work behind the scenes working on hauling a huge heap of entertainment ashore.

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 [...]

Cities of Yesteryear and Speed Reaction – 02/3/24

Hey PI-Fans, Things keep chugging along as always. I'm not sure when the steady stream of new board games became a thing, but here we are. 7 Wonders: Architects - Medals provides a mechanical expansion to the sleek streamlined gameplay of 7 Wonders: Architects with new medal and science mechanic increasing the amount of things players have to fight over. A new edition of the classic Cartagena arrives in the form of Cartagena: Escape Diaries, which builds upon the original (and can be played as the original as well) with extra options and game modes. For the little ones, a restock of the classic Dobble, along with the Camping, Disney Princesses and Animals sets mean plenty of raucous laughter for anyone looking for a speed reaction game.   “You have been sent to the prison of Cartagena. Your task: successfully guide your crew of pirates to escape this perilous fortress. Will [...]

Rolling Stock and Works of Art – 23/2/24

Hey PI-Fans, This week brings a heaping helping of random bits and bobs into the fray, from the art competition themed Canvas, to the Poland expansion for Ticket to Ride! We've also managed to secure a tiny stockpile of Betrayal at House on the Hill (3rd Edition), so if you're in the mood for a horror movie heist, act fast to avoid disappointment (and maybe being devoured by the house). Beyond that, it's the usual stack of classic restocks with Citadels, Wingspan and Exploding Kittens being the standout titles. A stack of Tiny Epic title restocks has also come trucking in as well so if you need a teeny tiny board game experience to while away your time, you're settled here. From the Baltic Sea to the Tatra Mountains, Poland offers wide open vistas just waiting to be discovered. Take in the fresh sea breeze on the Gulf of Gdansk, or maybe [...]

Expansions for all kinds of investigations… – 16/2/24

Hey PI-Fans, Take the opportunity to poke around a bit in the board game releases this week! You'll never know what sort of clues you'll turn up in this slightly investigative focused week. Take a break from the mist choked streets of Arkham County as it is time for The Feast of Hemlock Vale campaign for the Arkham Horror Living Card Game. Take a trip to this scenic isle, partake of the festivities, mingle with the locals... and try to avoid getting eaten - that would be bad. If the getting devoured by the wildlife part sounds problematic, consider a side trip to Echo Ridge City to take on the mob in Tiny Epic Crimes and it's expansion Kingpins. As officers of the law, players need to solve the murder of the Mayor's son and deal with the resultant crime wave before an all out gang war kicks off.    [...]
