8 Days to March of the Machine Prerelease

Hey PI-Fans, Eight days remaining to Games@PI's Magic: the Gathering - March of the Machine Prerelease Event! From Amonkhet to Zendikar, the invaded planes and their inhabitants are depicted in gorgeous art upon the cards. March of the Machine showcases the upcoming multiversal battle across all ten of the Gainlands, first released in the Tarkir set (currently being Invaded) last seen together as a full set back in Kamigawa (also being invaded). While bits and bobs of the Gainland set did show up in the Warhammer 40,000 Commander decks, we don't think Elesh Norn is quite insane enough to take a swing at the Grim Darkness of the Far Future (though to be fair, the Phyrexians would fit right in).         The prerelease event for the 'March of the Machine' set happens Saturday, 15/4/23. Who knows, you might end up going home with a Plane or two [...]

9 Days to March of the Machine Prerelease

Hey PI-Fans, Nine days remaining to Games@PI's Magic: the Gathering - March of the Machine Prerelease Event! With the Phyrexian invasion underway all across the Planes, soldiers, champions and even the wildlife are rising up to meet the threat posed by these multiversal intruders. Unfortunately, this resistance can occasionally play directly into the hands of the Phyrexians themselves, as be they Soldier, Beast, Angel or Devil, all have a place waiting for them in the Phyrexian hierarchy. There's probably something meta to be said about the depiction of mind-twisting flesh-distorting corruption becoming little more than a question of combat utility for players, but we'll try not to think too hard about that. The prerelease event for the 'March of the Machine' set happens Saturday, 15/4/23, just in time for you to load up on the body horror. We'll be doing a daily countdown, sharing our favourites of the cards previewed [...]

10 Days to March of the Machine Prerelease

Hey PI-Fans, Ten days remaining to Games@PI's Magic: the Gathering - March of the Machine Prerelease Event! The last time we checked in, the Magic the Gathering multiverse was in something of a pickle, thanks to the Phyrexians - Magic's longtime creepy-ass fratricidal sock-puppet villains, successfully utilizing the Invasion Tree 'Realmbreaker' to attack all planes at once. This cataclysmic war is the feature of  the 'March of the Machine' set, which we're having a prerelease event for on Saturday, 15/4/23. We'll be doing a daily countdown, sharing our favourites of the cards previewed and preparing for the event! Are you excited for the battle?! The story has taken us to many places, and we return to them once again.... The event details are as follows:  April 15 (Saturday), 2pm Format: Sealed, three rounds Swiss, best-of-3 matches Fee: $35 Participation: 3 wins - 4 set booster packs 2 wins - 2 [...]

Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet – March 31st

Hey PI-Fans, Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet - March 31st Not only has series protagonist Ash Ketchum (Satoshi to the Japanese purists) taken his victory lap after being an eternally scrappy 10-year old since 1997, the Sword & Shield set for the Pokémon card game which has been with us since before the pandemic in 2020 is finally wrapping up and we're moving on from Galar! Spare a thought for your local Pokémon fan - It's a period of dramatic change for them. The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet set is the next generation of the Pokémon Trading Card Game and is moving into the new Paldea region. ScarVio, as we're calling it, sees the return of the classic 'ex' mechanic, last seen in the wild back in 2007, as well as a shift to silver borders for the trading cards, an artistic touch that brings the sets more in line [...]

Azul and Century Golem – Glass and Golems

Hey PI-Fans, A restock of both the Century Golem series and Azul have meandered into the store after spending way too long stuck in limbo and it's a bulky shipment of stuff, with all five of the Azul titles, including the special Master Chocolatier special edition set and all three Century Golem titles now available on our shelves. The four main Azul titles - Azul, Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra, Azul: Summer Pavilion and Azul: Queen's Garden are beautiful games with a masterfully elegant take on resource drafting. Players alternate turns to draft tiles from a central market while cheekily working to force opponents to take more than they need. The special Azul: Master Chocolatier edition on the other hand is a unique candy retheme of the classic Azul, replacing the tiles of the original with pieces patterned after chocolate pralines! If you really like Azul, consider picking up a [...]

Catan Traveler – The Catan for when you just want to play Catan

Hey PI-Fans, If you're like us and enjoy the occasional round of Catan or two with friends but struggle to get the playgroup to use the expansions (a travesty I know), the nifty little Catan Traveler is probably the Catan set to own, especially if you're concerned about space and portability. Essentially a full set of the Catan base game for four players, Catan Traveler goes a step beyond the original for including special rules for two-players as well (since it can prove vaguely difficult to pack a third player in a suitcase). Everything fits neatly into the additional drawers built into the case, with card holders for the resource cards, and a dice shaker to keep individual dice from doing a runner. While it can't work with the full scale expansions, these factors combine to make this neat little set an excellent gift for a person with tight space [...]

YOU LYING SACK – A Game By The Exploding Kittens Company

Hey PI-Fans, In a weird collision of entertainment IPs,  YOU LYING SACK is a social game designed by illusionist Pen Jillette of 'Penn & Teller' and published by The Exploding Kitten company. In an intense game of social cues and poker faces YOU LYING SACK is a game of outsmarting your friends in a giant player elimination game of You-Know-That-I-Know (But do You-Know-That-I-Know-That-You-Know-That-I-Know) and rides more on how well players know each other and can read each other's tells and social makers. Each turn a players reaches into the titular Lying Sack and retrieves a number of 'Bad Thing' tokens as indicated on an escalating chart. Alternatively, they can feel around and retrieve the hidden 'Good Thing' token instead. After this they offer the contents of their clenched hand to each subsequent player, repeating the line "My hand is full of bad things. Will you take them?" If nobody accepts, [...]

Keeping it bottled up – A ‘Soda Smugglers’ Review

Hey PI-Fans, Lawmakers are cracking down on soda, and tight regulation has made way for lucrative smuggling. One bottle per person is the new law — thus bribes, suitcase inspections, and arrests are on the agenda. Only one will emerge the Soda Kingpin. Reiner Knizia's Soda Smugglers is a light three to eight player party game based on Knizia's own 'Heisse Ware: Krimi-Kartenspiel fur clevere Schmuggler', an absolute mouthful of a game loosely translating to 'Hot Merchandise: Criminal Card Game for Clever Smugglers'. Like it's contemporary, 'Sheriff of Nottingham', it draws a loose evolutionary lineage from a 1950s era game 'Contraband', but Soda Smugglers remains far more focused on light and accessible gameplay, making it stand out as a party game. Upon unfastening the magnetic clasp on a Soda Smugglers box, one of the first things to catch the eye is the quality of the insert and overall design. Bitewing Games [...]
