Hey PI-Fans,While we’ve stepped out of the Circuit Breaker, very little has changed for us really. Retail is still shuttered but the Games @ PI Webstore on the other hand, is still very much operational.While we can’t unleash the new Arkham Horror LCG packs to the world just yet (ask again tomorrow), new on the webstore is a pile of titles for your perusal.As promised, we’re going to keep plugging away at this as we work to expand our RPG, Miniature and Board Game categories.As always, the option to make the leap over and start browsing right away is always open to you HERE, but if you’d like a list about what we added, keep reading.

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner That I love London soMaybe it’s because I’m a LondonerThat I think of her wherever I goI get a funny feeling inside of meJust walking up and downMaybe it’s because I’m a LondonerThat I love London town. Ticket to Ride: London is a new entry in designer Alan R. Moon’s Ticket to Ride family of games and it carries all the pedigree of its bigger brothers, distilled down into a nippy fast playing form.Designed to convey the strategy and depth of Ticket to Ride, while keeping playing time down to a half hour or less, Ticket to Ride: London (and her half-sister Ticket to Ride: New York), in a departure from traditional Ticket to Ride, take place in a single condensed city map. In Ticket to Ride: London, this is obviously the titular City of London, giving you a chance to ride the buses [...]

Hey PI-Fans,With the CB still chugging along, the Games @ PI has taken the opportunity to get some additional stuff into our stores. On top of the launch of Pandemic: Hot Zones – North America, featured last week in our review “A Short Ramble About The Pandemic, and Pandemic”, we have a new Cards Against Humanity expansion ready to order, and the aptly named ‘Absurd Box’ is a strange beast. And… after plumbing the depths and calling in a few old favors, we have an absolutely tiny quantity of Sheriff of Nottingham up for sale with its expansion Merry Men. There’s no guarantee of restock for this ever, so if it goes, it’s gone. Of course, this isn’t the extent of it. There’s something for everyone, if you keep reading. […]

The word ‘pandemic’ has recently been added to everyone’s lexicon, with the Coronavirus running rampant globally. To combat this, businesses have been shut down, public spaces closed, and we’ve been encouraged to self-isolate. Not the most fun of times.Looking on the bright side, however, I’ve been able to spend more time with my family and I’ve been introducing them to board games. One of these games has [...]
A rickety spire of colourful blocks stands dangerously high in the middle of the table, the centrepiece of a game that seamlessly blends elements of Jenga and Uno with a unique twist. At its core, Crazy Tower involves players building up a tower of wooden blocks, taking turns to place blocks on a floor card. Players can also create a new level by balancing a floor card on the existing set of blocks. […]
There is a layer of strategy and depth behind the beauty of Azul, the award-winning tile drafting game where players compete to assemble a wall of ceramic tiles.
