BattleTech – A Universe of Warfare

Hey PI-Fans, BattleTech - 31st Century Armored Combat is on our Webstore   It's no secret that many of the people who run Games @ PI are BattleTech fans. For the uninitiated, BattleTech is a science fiction war-game universe set in the 30th Century, where giant walking tanks known as BattleMechs dominate the neofeudal battlefields of the future. Unlike many other science fiction properties, alien sentience isn't a big thing, so the universe retains a grounded in a Human way. It's an inviting setting and a huge sandbox, with plenty of space for players to mess about within the confines of canon. As part of our range revamp, it's also now on our webstore. The box set games remain an excellent way to get started as always, and if you're a regular player seeking to expand your game, perhaps grabbing a Lance or Star Box or a map pack or [...]

Exploding Kittens – More Than Just Exploding Kittens

Hey PI-Fans, Exploding Kittens as a brand has taken off in a huge way and you might be familiar with the competitive Push-Your-Luck Last-Person-Standing party fest that are Exploding Kittens and it's spin-offs. However, with a variety of party, dexterity and word games at their disposal, the Exploding Kittens company is about WAY more than Exploding Kittens.  If you just want the Exploding Kittens experience, it's not just the little red box. There's many different ways to get the game started, including the Classic, NSFW, 2-Player, Party Pack, Recipes for Disaster or even the standalone Exploding Minions Box. The Classic, NSFW and Recipes for Disaster boxes are the traditional way to play for two-to-five players, though you can boost the overall number of participants by smashing two sets together. The new 2-player edition is perfect for this, being balanced as a two-player version of Exploding Kittens, while also functioning as [...]

Stella – A Dixit Universe Game

Hey PI-Fans, If you're a fan of Dixit, you owe it yo yourself to check out Stella - A Dixit Universe Game, now available at Games @ PI and via our webstore. Stella is Dixit designer Jean-Louis Roubira's revisiting of the classic Dixit formula, playing like a cross between Dixit and Codenames as players try to match wavelengths with each other in a brilliant twist on the traditional gameplay. Gone is the storyteller. Instead players try to match the classic Dixit artwork to theme words, secretly trying to ensure that their points of view line up with another player (and preferably only one) while attempting to balance that against the number of cards selected and trying not the be the person who chose the largest portfolio of picture cards. Featuring the same stunning art-style of classic Dixit cards, Stella can be played on it's own, but cards from Dixit and [...]

Refilling The Catan Trading Port

Hey PI-Fans, We've just had a chunky load of Catan float into port and we figured we probably ought to just highlight that the base range of Catan sets, Expansions and Extensions are back in-stock, including Seafarers, Traders & Barbarians, Explorers & Pirates and the much sought after Cities & Knights. There's more on the way as we work our way through the stack of boxes, so expect us to be even more giddy with excitement throughout the week.   - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager

Came for the Giant Robots, Stayed for the Politics – A BattleTech Guided Tour

Hey PI-Fans, There's an old hoary chestnut that comes up amongst BattleTech fans about new technology. Time marches on though. Technical Readout 3067 is twenty years old. The now defunct MechWarrior: Dark Age collectable miniatures game launched that year as well. Catalyst Game Labs has stewarded the BattleTech liscence for longer than FASA at this point.  It's been some thirty-real world years since the original Clan Invasion storyline, and there's been some big movers and shakers in the Inner Sphere since. With the ongoing timeline now trundling forward into uncharted waters, it's a great time to get up to speed. Here's a penny tour of the BattleTech universe. Expect Spoilers, if decades old plot reveals can actually be considered spoilers.   The Universe of Warfare that many of us have grown to love and/or tolerate effectively departs from our own in 2018 when two scientists - Thomas Kearny and Takayoshi [...]

Henry Audubon’s TRAILS is now on the Webstore

Hey PI-Fans, Henry Audubon's TRAILS is now available on the Games @ PI Webstore Almost a midpoint between it's larger siblings Parks and Space Park, Trails manages to streamline the overall experience without falling into the passive-aggressive action manipulation of Space Park, allowing for a quieter, more contemplative experience that doesn't overstay it's welcome.  In line with being an amazing little game that can be played on a coffee-table sized surface, Trails is a brilliantly smart little minimalistic game about players maximizing their limited options. All things considered, for such a tiny little box, Trails is surprisingly pretty dense in terms of contents. The modular board is actually a pretty nice detail allowing for multiple different possible setups and is an inspired way to track the game's day/night cycle. This isn't to say it's better than it's siblings either. Henry Audubon has somehow managed to create a unique tempo and [...]

Quirky Circuits: Penny & Gizmo’s Snow Day! Now Available

Hey PI-Fans, Another week, another release. This time, its Quirky Circuits: Penny & Gizmo's Snow Day!, a wacky programming themed cooperative board game where players must work together to send a little robot friend careening across the board like a cat on a roomba. Well... there actually IS A CAT ON A ROOMBA... In Quirky Circuits, players must successfully program a set of sequential actions for their little robot buddies using their command cards without communication. Chase down dust bunnies with the vacuum cleaning Gizmo and collect flags on a slalom course with the skiing Penny the Penguin! Players have only limited information as to which cards their teammates have played, raising the stakes with each action played. Program wrongly and your robo-friend could be left spinning its wheels in a corner as they run out of batteries. This adorable little logic puzzler is playable at 2-4 players, with [...]
