Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne Review

Hey PI-Fans, How's your week going so far? We've got a new game review for you folks written by our guest reviewer: Wesley Tay!  In a nutshell: Game of Thrones: Iron Throne is great for gamers who love politicking, backstabbing and scheming. You don't have to be a Thrones fan to enjoy the game, because it's really all about dishing on others and protecting your own interests and people. No hard feelings, just business! And you all can have a good laugh afterwards.    Pick up the game at our webstore!    Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne Review What it's About The only thing worse than people who share spoilers are pedantic people, who ask questions like “Why did Tyrion do this? It makes no sense!” Or “How did Baelish get away with the that?” Just wait for the reveals then complain about it! As a fan of role [...]

New Releases – September 4, 2020

Hey PI-Fans, Yes folks, it's already September and the start of the school holidays! We have not 1, but 3 New Releases today: CTRL, Unlock! Epic Adventures and Forgotten Waters.     CTRL Pronounced 'Control', this abstract 3D block game is all about covering a cube with your coloured blocks! In the box, there's a cube, many coloured bricks and coloured flags. To start, claim a corner of the cube and plant your flag. On your turn, you remove your coloured flag (which indicates your starting point) add 2 bricks in a straight line to 'grow' your territory.

New Releases – August 25, 2020

Hey PI-Fans! We just received 3 New Releases yesterday evening: 'Chope!', 'Mooncake Master' and 'Remember Our Trip'  All designed by local Singaporean, Daryl Chow! Support local! Chope!   In Singapore, everyone knows the 'Laws of Chope', basically 'hawker table reservation etiquette.' If you see a packet of tissue placed on a hawker table seat, it means its reserved. As every Singaporean knows, reserving hawker table seats is a game of 'faster choper first': you don't slap that tissue packet down, you don't get that hawker seat. In 'Chope!', players are hungry folks trying to get their favourite hawker delights and find a table. On your turn, flip open as many cards from the centre hawker deck to see how much food cards you can get. There's Chicken Rice, Nasi Briyani, Nasi Lemak, Laksa to name a few. If you encounter 2 of the same food cards, you bust! You'll be [...]
