Support Local: An Interview with the Creators of Bye Bye Virus!

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 [...]

Support Local: An Interview with the Creators of Broken Hearts!

Hey PI-fans, A good Thursday morning to you! Recently, we were able to bring in a new Singapore made game: Broken Hearts! We also had the pleasure to sit and have a chat with the creators of the game: Joey Teh (on the right) and Seik Yee Thoo! (on the left)    Q: Tell us about the game and how it came to be? Joey: The idea of the game came from a break up I had with my boyfriend at that point of time. He left without a word and it was hard for me because there was no closure. We were going out for about a year. I was really very depressed but I couldn't bring myself to talk about this to my friends, to my colleagues and even with my family too. So it was only till 1 fateful day was I willing to share my story [...]

Hey PI-fans, And once again, it's Friday! Grab your friends, grab some snacks! We have a New Release that will leave you in stitches: Trial by Trolley!   Trial by Trolley        You've probably heard about the infamous moral dilemma: an out of control car is speeding down the road and is about to hit 2 groups of people - pre-schoolers or slow moving elderly. Which would you pick? In Trial By Trolley, one player is the Trolley Conductor while the other players must convince the Trolley Conductor which group of people should he/she kill! At the start of the round, 2 innocent cards are played face up on 2 separate tracks eg. 'A woman in labour in a car' or 'the world's greatest physicist'.

New Release Spotlight: Silver Dagger

Hey PI-fans, We're half way through the week! And with that, a new release: Silver Dagger! But what's the difference between this Silver and Silver Coin that released back a few months ago? Let's find out!   All the Silver games generally play similarly: You are all village chiefs, all your villages have been overrun by werewolves! Your goal is to draft your hand to obtain villagers with the lowest 'threat' level. The higher the numerical value, the higher the werewolf threat. Silver Dagger features even more interesting villager cards like the Debt Collector, the Spy, the Furry to name a few! Each unique villager changes up the game play and you can mash other boxes of Silver together to form your own unique Silver game!  Combo your villagers, backstab your friends! Because hey, you don't want werewolves to eat your villagers! Totally fine if they eat others! 2-4 Players, [...]

Horrible Game Experiences: Collectible Card Games

Hey PI-Fans, Continuing our series of Horrible Game Experiences; last week, we talked about Awful Board Game Experiences. This week, it's all about Collectible Card Games. The joy of CCGs is they can be played quickly and anywhere: over a lunch break, after school, a short session after work. But as with all games, things sometimes turn iffy and at times, get very awful. Presenting the worst ever CCG Experiences ever! People Who Are Rough With Your Cards: The Furious 'Poker' and The Ripple Shuffler Vernon recalls that some players have a tendency to poke other people's cards very hard to the point it's fingernail to cardboard. 'Ah I attack that one!' PO-PO-POKE It's like 'don't hurt my cards!' Jack especially dislikes people who ripple shuffles his cards and violently. You Get Schooled by An Arrogant Player Getting schooled is one thing, but getting schooled by a douchy uber-player is [...]
