Good With More

Hey PI-Fans, We previously took the opportunity to point out a couple of our favorite two-player experiences.... and then one of the staff pointed out "What if someone wants a game that can be fun when played with two-players, but also has room for expansion?" and this led to a lot of hemming and hawing. After some thought, here's a trio of titles which we would recommend for any collection that are have really good gameplay even at two-players.   Room For More Codenames by CGE is usually seen as a large group party game, but each set also includes rules for a two-player cooperative mode. While a competitive game of Codenames will see players divided into two separate red and blue teams which see them racing to contact their agents before the other team, a two-or-more-player cooperative game of Codenames will see players racing to score against a countdown timer.

Good For Two

Hey PI-Fans, Want a board game fix? We've had to revise our hours to minimise staff on the floor in line with MOH's instructions on Minimising Workplace Interactions, but we're still keeping the gaming goodness going. Also worth mentioning is that our webstore also offers a free local delivery option for orders of S$50 or more.   CHECK OUT THE GAMES @ PI WEBSTORE   With rules on the reduction of overall group size, we figured it's time to take a look at several excellent board games for your two-player needs.   Good With Two Onitama, by Arcane Wonders is a brilliant two-player duel. In this light abstract strategy game, players control a school of martial artists represented by a Master and four student pawns in a duel against a rival school. Two win, players must either move the pawn representing the Master of their school across the board into [...]

LIKE RATS FLEEING A SINKING SHIP

Hey PI-Fans, Want an entirely mean spirited twist on a classic board game race mechanic? Look no further than Bristol 1350. The plague has come to the city of Bristol and everyone's having a bad time. Flee the city on the last three carts out of the city as player flee the town for the dubious safety of the countryside. If your cart is the first out of town you and your cart-mates win! Unless someone in the cart has the plague. In which case you all die -  a decidedly bad outcome for all involved. Will you hop from cart to cart frantically trying to avoid anyone suspicious? Or will you take matters into your own hands and physically yeet people from your cart to stop them from mingling, possibly leaving them behind in the doomed city? And will you be able to live with yourself afterwards? Part co-operative [...]

Future War and Calming Treks

Hey PI-Fans, It's another odd pairing hitting our shelves with the exceedingly chill nature walks of Parks running face first into the mecha rampage that was BattleTech's Battle of Tukayyid sourcebook. Besides the new, this isn't to say we've been sitting around twiddling our thumbs either.  Alongside titles like the Tukayyid Map Pack and Space Parks, we recommend the ever popular Who Should We Eat? is back in stock if ever you should fancy a sudden spot of cannibalism, as is Deception: Murder In Hong Kong if you're after a hidden traitor game for your group. If you want something you for a short spot of gaming with friends and loved ones, don't overlook titles like Splendor, Onitama, Hive or Set either.   How did we end up with supplies of what is essentially Giant-Robot-Kursk and Keymaster's game of nature trekking arriving simultaneously? No clue. The way global shipping currently works [...]

Ancient Ruins and Cute Animals

Hey PI-Fans, Even if you're secretly missing the part of your brain that solves sliding tile puzzles like me, between the cutesy animal adventurers of Here to Slay and the ancient tile sliding puzzles of Shifting Stones, despite being completely unplanned we sort of have an adventuring theme going this week. This isn't to say we've forgotten the rest of the adventuring world. I mean, there's always Gloomhaven and Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Mansions of Madness,  Stuffed Fables and more if you want your big dungeon crawlers. Leave no stone unturned! Nine mystical tiles lie before you in a grid of rocky ruins. Rearrange these intricately cut stones to match your Pattern cards and score points. The catch is that you must sacrifice a card every time you swap or flip a tile and these same cards are used to manipulate the stones or [...]

An Expansive Week

Hey PI-Fans, It's a good week for board game expansions (and board games in general). We know people like the evergreens like Pandemic, Catan and Ticket to Ride, but there's also a couple of newer titles like Space Park and Marvel Splendor which possess a unique elegance of their own that we think people should take out for a spin. We've been having fun with the asymmetrical dungeon crawler VAST: The Mysterious Manor and the classic bird-watching board game Wingspan... but what if you wanted more? Well, one absolutely crazy day of unpacking later, we've got two new expansions back in stock on both our retail store and on the webstore as well as their core games back in stock. VAST: The Haunted Hallways expansion comes packed with a stack of forty-five detailed miniatures to flesh out your VAST experience, including force walls, treasures, eggs, and webs and also adds [...]

Party (Game) The Weekend Away?

Hey PI-Fans, The weekend cometh, and perhaps it's time to cut loose with a few friends. Now that groups are larger again, maybe it's worth a look at some classic standbys and a few 'horrible' new options to tantalize your friends. If you like Exploding Kittens or Unstable Unicorns, well... you're in luck. Exploding Kittens and Unstable Unicorns are back in on our shelves and we've got expansions if you want them - Unicorns of Legend, Dragons and Rainbow Apocalypse are expansions for the Unstable Unicorns base set while we've acquired a small batch of Imploding Kittens and Streaking Kittens for your Exploding Kittens collection   Alternatively, your friends are sus.

SPACE PARK

Hey PI-Fans, I would never be able to forgive myself if I didn't reference Tim Currey escaping to the one place uncorrupted by capitalism at least once. Now that I've gotten it out my system, here's Space Park. From the designer of PARKS comes Space Park, an exploration themed board game about roaming the galaxy on rocket ships, exploring exotic destinations, collecting crystal, and earning badges so you can brag to all your friends that you are the greatest explorer in the galaxy. Featuring a modular board on which destinations are randomly arranged, Space Park will see players strategically advancing rockets around the ring of destinations to take advantage of various location effects. These can range from gathering the three different types of exotic crystals necessary for research to collecting tokens which will allow them to better manipulate the board and ride off the actions of other players. With the rockets [...]

Stuffing The Shelves In Time For April

Hey PI-Fans, It's been a while hasn't it. While the Games @ PI team has basically worked tirelessly to keep our staples in check, but the international situation has been... rough. We've been working to turn this around and hopefully this means that stuff is flowing again. What this means for you, dear friends of the store, is hopefully a return to range and normalcy. And from the above, that's clearly a HUGE heap of RANGE AND NORMALCY. Are you looking for classic board games like Risk, Scrabble, Monopoly, Topple, Pay Day, Rummikub and Sequence? We've got them in-stock and ready for you. Feeling horrible and edgy? Given the state of the world, who could blame you? Let loose your inner horrible person with Trial by Trolley and Codenames: Deep Undercover. Or maybe play a few rounds of Unstable Unicorns, Llamas Unleashed or Exploding Kittens. We won't judge. Much. Want [...]
