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 [...]

Kopi King, Mooncake Master and is working on releasing Plantopia soon! Read on to find out what makes him tick and what he loves most about designing 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.
