Keep Stocking And Nobody Explodes

Hey PI-Fans, As we prepare to roll into August, the Games @ PI team would like to take a moment to wish our Muslim friends a blessed Hari Raya Haji. If you're still hunkering down with your small groups, Games @ PI is happy to roll out another batch of two-player board games with the restock of Bang! Duel and the Renegade Expansion as well as the arrival of Cosmic Encounter Duel. On top of the new releases, we're seeing a number of important restocks at our store. First up, Pandemic is back in-stock along with Pandemic Hot Zones: North America. These aren't the only cooperative titles to flood back onto the shelves - we've taken the opportunity to reload our shelves with the rest of Matt Leacock's prodigious cooperative game range, including Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Forbidden Sky and even Thunderbirds, his take on the classic supermarionation television series.  [...]

D&D AL Session Pass Redemption

Hey PI-Fans, With the Coronavirus Recovery Phase chugging along, Games @ PI has reopened retail operations, but with the current restrictions on Entertainment Venues, for the safety of both our staff and customers, we have opted to close our gaming area for the time being.

New For You

Hey PI-Fans,The Games @ PI team has been hard at work slowly chewing through our backlog of titles and I’d like to seize on this opportunity to feature a pair of titles new to the webstore; Walking in Burano and Seikatsu: A Pet’s Life. Seikatsu: A Pet’s Life is an abstract tile playing game of adorable animals. Players plop down a mass of pets lounging on cushions, while trying to form large collections of animals to score. Placement becomes even more important in the end game as the arrangement of coloured cushions, relative to each player scores them additional points, so players must consider where they are putting down pets for proper points. Walking in Burano is a card drafting game about building and decorating houses in Burano, a beautiful island of Venice. In Walking in Burano, players draft floor cards featuring different personal decor items to build three floor [...]

The Savage Worlds RPG Review

Hey PI-Fans,Let’s just get this out of the way from the start. Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is an RPG, but Savage Worlds is not Dungeons & Dragons.If you want a role-playing system based on the pseudo-medieval high-fantasy Vancian-magic rooted assumptions that D&D is known for, you play D&D. This isn’t meant as a knock. D&D is a great system, but is also wholly unapologetic in the kind of story it wants to tell.As a ‘universal’ system, Savage Worlds… is less constrained than its RPG half-brother and a bit more manic in execution. TL;DR: Savage Worlds is a classless RPG system which uses a simple roll-against-target-number resolution system for streamlined roleplaying and fast combat. Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is the latest edition of the Savage Worlds RPG and provides a universal set of rules that can be easily adapted for Noir, Superhero, Pulp-Action, Military and Science-Fiction settings.

Spaces, Races and Special Places

Hey PI-Fans,You know how the game works. We’re still plugging away at work as always.This week feels oddly like it’s centred on a slab of space and adventure themed games. Entirely unplanned of course, but between the Warhammer 40,000 Talisman spinoff Relic, galaxy conquest wargame Star Wars: Rebellion, the Mars colonization themed Terraforming Mars and the ever wacky Galaxy Truckers, it’s really hard not to think this wasn’t planned.It wasn’t.On the other hand, we’re also adding a new Book section to the website containing both a smattering of Fiction and Non-Fiction titles. As with all things, we hope to grow this in the future to encompass a great many more titles, but in the meantime, we strongly recommend Gary Ray’s excellent Friendly Local Game Store, an acerbic but witty at the joys and tribulations of running a business in this industry.We’ll keep chipping away at the backlog as we work [...]
