Bureau of Investigation – You got Cthulhu in my Sherlock

Hey PI-Fans, It's always entertaining when a series becomes a brand, especially when the series is one as deserving as the Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective series. If you've not taken the games out for a spin, you absolutely should. The Baker Street Irregulars, Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, Carlton House & Queen's Park and The Thames Murders & Other Cases take you into the case files of the inimitable Master Detective. But what happens... when things get... stranger? This is where the Bureau of Investigation steps in. Building on the investigative mechanics of the Sherlock Holmes series, the Bureau of Investigation continues to provide you with a set of case files, maps, notes, newspaper clippings that players have come to expect from the Sherlock Holmes series, Except you're not in Baker Street anymore. Welcome to the streets of Boston, where your investigative agency is tasked with conducting research [...]

Voices In My Head!

VOICES IN MY HEAD NOW AVAILABLE Hey PI-Fans, Sometimes, people do crazy things. Meet Guy. It's probably not his finest hour, given Guy's on trial for robbing a bank. At this point, his inner monologue's a bit scrambled and his personality fragments are fighting for control of his body in Voices In My Head, a comedic board game that has more than a few similarities to a certain animated film from 2015 (nudge nudge wink wink). Unfortunately, in this case, the personalities aren't particularly in unison over the outcome and being on trial, Guy has to deal with a Prosecutor trying to put him away as well. In an absolutely wacky take on 'worker' placement, each personality attempts to take control of various mental functions of Guy, including his planning, observation, speech, instincts and motor skills, shoving control markers onto raised platforms and potentially physically displacing previously added tokens and [...]

7 Wonders Architects – Building Upon The Shoulders Of Giants

7 WONDERS: ARCHITECTS NOW AVAILABLE AT GAMES @ PI AND WEBSTORE Hey PI-Fans, It's taken a long, meandering road, but 7 Wonders: Architects, a new addition to the 7 Wonders family of games has hit our shelves. Comfortably slotting itself in between the two-player head to head gameplay of 7 Wonders Duel and the full complexity of a game of regular 7 Wonders sits Architects, making it an excellent introductory title for new players getting into the hobby. This streamlined approach makes it far more approachable especially for people starting out who might find themselves overwhelmed with the scope and complexity of the mainline title.   7 Wonders Architects borrows many of the resource management and draft aspects from 7 Wonders but makes a conscious effort to avoid overloading players with choices. Each turn, a player may draft resources from one of three cards presented to them which they will [...]

Exploding Kittens – More Than Just Exploding Kittens

Hey PI-Fans, Exploding Kittens as a brand has taken off in a huge way and you might be familiar with the competitive Push-Your-Luck Last-Person-Standing party fest that are Exploding Kittens and it's spin-offs. However, with a variety of party, dexterity and word games at their disposal, the Exploding Kittens company is about WAY more than Exploding Kittens.  If you just want the Exploding Kittens experience, it's not just the little red box. There's many different ways to get the game started, including the Classic, NSFW, 2-Player, Party Pack, Recipes for Disaster or even the standalone Exploding Minions Box.

Stella – A Dixit Universe Game

Hey PI-Fans, If you're a fan of Dixit, you owe it yo yourself to check out Stella - A Dixit Universe Game, now available at Games @ PI and via our webstore. Stella is Dixit designer Jean-Louis Roubira's revisiting of the classic Dixit formula, playing like a cross between Dixit and Codenames as players try to match wavelengths with each other in a brilliant twist on the traditional gameplay. Gone is the storyteller. Instead players try to match the classic Dixit artwork to theme words, secretly trying to ensure that their points of view line up with another player (and preferably only one) while attempting to balance that against the number of cards selected and trying not the be the person who chose the largest portfolio of picture cards. Featuring the same stunning art-style of classic Dixit cards, Stella can be played on it's own, but cards from Dixit and [...]

Henry Audubon’s TRAILS is now on the Webstore

Hey PI-Fans, Henry Audubon's TRAILS is now available on the Games @ PI Webstore Almost a midpoint between it's larger siblings Parks and Space Park, Trails manages to streamline the overall experience without falling into the passive-aggressive action manipulation of Space Park, allowing for a quieter, more contemplative experience that doesn't overstay it's welcome.  In line with being an amazing little game that can be played on a coffee-table sized surface, Trails is a brilliantly smart little minimalistic game about players maximizing their limited options. All things considered, for such a tiny little box, Trails is surprisingly pretty dense in terms of contents. The modular board is actually a pretty nice detail allowing for multiple different possible setups and is an inspired way to track the game's day/night cycle. This isn't to say it's better than it's siblings either. Henry Audubon has somehow managed to create a unique tempo and [...]
