The Post-Holiday Stockup – 16/1/24

Hey PI-Fans, The Post-New Year period is one where stores assess the post-Christmas rush and get to work filling up the shelves. Games @ PI is no exception, and the team has been hard at work ensuring we've a store full of fancy. This isn't to say we've been neglecting the weird and wonderful of the board game world of course - after all, we just magicked up a stack of Decrypto and Wavelength for the social gamers while resource management fans can grab a copy of Wingspan, Brass Lancashire or Brass Birmingham off the shelf. Of course, if you're after something new to broaden your palette, we recommend The Vale of Eternity, an EXCELLENT little creature collector card game by Korean publisher Mandoo games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_aTOOjj9C4   Board and Card Game New Releases: Decrypto 5th Anniversary Edition The Vale of Eternity Important Restocks: Brass Birmingham Brass Lancashire Wavelength Wingspan [...]

Random Roll Ups – Store Restocks 21/11

Hey PI-Fans, Nothing says random quite like a strange smattering of board games, card games, miniatures and dice. This, on the other hand does happen from time to time, since the restocks for the week include a pile of weirdness with Renegade Games' Aggretsuko Work/Rage Balance, Leder Games' Ahoy. You'll also be seeing more of Brass Lancashire, Camel Up and Cascadia, as these amazing titles have drifted in aboard the same boat. On the miniature front, few of BattleTech's mercenary units have quite the storied (and strange) reputation of Snord's Irregulars, a famed unit notorious for their tendency towards insubordination and their eccentric magpie-like obsession with "collecting" (or looting) valuables. The Snord's Irregulars Assault Lance leads another wave of BattleTech Merc boxes,  with no guarantee of resupply once they disappear. Then come the Dice. Loads and loads of dice as a long delayed shipment finally completes the journey, leaving us [...]

Store Restocks and the Law of Shipment Attraction

Hey PI-Fans, For those of you who are curious about how logistics for a game company works, the honest answer is it doesn't. No matter how one plans shipments and plot and spaces things out... you can't control the shipping pipeline and while the best planning does mitigate things to an extent, sometimes it all just arrives at once. This is one of those times. The New Arrival shelf is absolutely brimming with piles of new stuff, including the long-awaited return of a slab of Avalon Hill Classics. Meanwhile, the football manager board game Eleven bursts back onto the scene with expansions to keep even the most jaded of coaches happy. Those seeking a more solitary gaming experience can pore over the details with the return of all three MicroMacro: Crime City sets while legacy game fans can look into the massive undertaking that is Oath.     In Oath, [...]

Restock Waves

Hey PI-Fans, Boy... It's been a while hasn't it.  Time waits for nobody and there's never enough of it really. In my ongoing attempts to keep the store full of cool stuff, it's time to update the website. It's a long overdue update, haha. Worth mentioning is that in addition to spread of board and card games, we've gotten in a useful spread of accessories from the Sultan with 100-card deck boxes, mini-snaps, magnetic-snaps and plastic sleeves  as well as inner 'perfect fit' sleeves for both Standard and Japanese trading card sizes, making this an excellent way to protect both Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering Commander decks. On top of that, here's some of the new stuff that's made it's way to the shelves.     The army of the evil Dragon Queen marches across the land, leaving destruction in its wake. An alliance of desperate defenders stands against the [...]

Descent: The Betrayer’s War – “More Dungeon, More Crawl”

Hey PI-Fans, The Betrayer's War expansion for the Descent: Legends of the Dark board game is an absolute doozy. Arriving in a massive box almost the same size as the original, the game of cooperative 3D dungeon crawling returns with a massive expansion to the main in a campaign that takes on the role of Act 2 of the journey of the heroes through Terrinoth. Building on the original, the game will continue to send heroes questing across a variety of different terrain and encounters as they seek to end the threat of the Waiqar the Undying, Dragonlord Levirax and the monstrous Uthuk Y’llan. Whether they succeed, on the other hand depends on the skill, luck and tenacity of the players in this App-Driven Game-Masterless dungeon romp. If you've ever wanted to play a RPG campaign but could never settle on armtwisting someone in to being the GM, this may [...]
