Another Week Of Games

Hey PI-Fans, If you're following along, we're tossing another batch of titles onto the shelf today. If you're looking for a fast, light party game for 1 to 6 players, we've got the bombastically named Super Mega Lucky Box for you, a fast moving bingo-esque card game, where you and your friends rush to fill in number grids to maximize scoring, all the while racking up bonus squares and power ups along the way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXGnvVVsuZs For something more in-depth, there's Winter Queen, an abstract resource collection board game that sees court sorcerers casting spells using enchanted crystals in a bid to become the Queen's new advisor. During each turn players draft crystals and place them on the Queendom board while collecting spell books. These crystals are drafted from the board to fuel a sorcerer's magic to earn the queen's favor.   If either of these titles catches your eye, [...]

Play The Week Away

Hey PI-Fans, Just making a quick post to let you know that two new board games have hit the shelf. The first is Passtally, an abstract tile laying game from Japanese designer Masaki Suga. In Passtally, players lay abstract tiles with connecting routes on a board, working to connect various markers along the board edge to score points. Passtally kicks this gameplay up a notch by allowing tiles to overlay each other, closing off some routes and changing others. Fast, simple and easy to learn but with plenty of potential for strategy, Passtally is an excellent game for small groups of 2 or 3 players and wraps up neatly in 30 to 45 mins. Along with Passtally comes Mini Divercity, a collaborative one to seven player card game which sees a team of conservationists rushing to collect data for a national park before the area can be swamped with commercial [...]

The End of the Beginning

Hey PI-Fans, We do board games here, and one of the newest releases is Quest, a new social deduction game from the designers of The Resistance and The Resistance: Avalon. Designed for 4 to 10 players, Quest has been rebalanced for smaller groups and as Arthur's loyal servants and Mordred's unscrupulous minions struggle for the future of civilization. Though the forces of Evil are few in number, but if they go unchecked, they can sabotage Arthur's great work and bring it crashing down. Of course, we're also wargamers with a taste for giant robots and we're proud to point to the ilClan sourcebook for BattleTech on our shelves. The ilClan is the Clan term for the "Clan of all Clans", determined by which Clan manages to capture the cradle of humanity: Terra. In the year 3151, Terra winds up under siege as the Children of Kerensky finally break through the [...]

New Stuff For The Shelf

Hey PI-Fans, We're still running around crazily restocking the shelves, but for those of you who sleeve your games (and we highly recommend it, really...), we've gotten restocks of both the Sultan range of card sleeves as well as the Gamegenic Prime sleeves in Standard, Standard European, Standard American, Mini European and Mini American sizes. On the board game front, we've had a massive stack of restocks as well. The classic bird watching game Wingspan and it's European and Oceania expansions are back on the shelf, chugging in with reloads of modern classics like Catan, it's 5-6 player expansion and Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert. That said, if you're here for the new stuff, there's the Oh Brother! expansion for Stuffed Fables, which sees new plushies (and an action figure) continuing to protect children from nightmares and a new Unlock! set. On the party game front, we've also got Exploding [...]

Weekly New Releases

Hey PI-Fans, Gotta apologise for the lateness. Been a rough week and we've been processing a steady stream of inbound freight. Apologies for this being shorter than usual folks but I've said many-a-time that the 'law of shipment attraction' always applies. The law posits that that no matter how well you space a shipment, they will all ultimately arrive back-to-back. Regardless, as swamped as the team has been, there are new titles on our shelves, because that's what we do. Secrets of the Order is an all new expansion of the Arkham Horror board game, that sends the investigators into French Hill, one of Arkham's oldest districts. Given the way things work in this misbegotten town, age inevitably brings with it secrets that should remain forgotten and when they come rising to the surface, it's up to the players to keep the pot from boiling over. Also in-stock are the [...]

All titles are available at Games @ PI and will be available for webstore order soon, though if you want them urgently, you can [...]
