BattleTech: Marauder – Something Wicked This Way Comes

Hey PI-Fans, The manager oddly excited ever since he managed to secure a tiny quantity of Marauder: A BattleTech Anthology. Lost since the unceremonious end to the BattleCorps subscription service in 2016, the titular Black Marauder finally rides again in what is arguably one of the weirdest books to ever grace BattleTech publication since Far Country.  "Why?", you might ask. "It's a book about a giant robot is it not?" Why yes, hypothetical reader. It is... It is a book about a giant robot. A very special giant robot. Marauder is a series of unsettling novellas told by unreliable narrators set in the BattleTech universe. One could almost describe them as horror. Except, again we don't do that here. You see, dear reader... In another science fiction universe, perhaps we'd see the arrival of silver armored warriors and an individual of inquisitive persuasion hunting a possible immaterial incursion... things like this [...]

Bureau of Investigation – You got Cthulhu in my Sherlock

Dungeons & Dragons – The Webstore

Hey PI-Fans, You've known us long enough to know we're fans of weird RPGs. On the other hand, sometimes you just need to return to the classic and let's be honest here - they're the classics for a reason. While there's a big Dungeons & Dragons film announced as being in-the-works, we're believers that while Hollywood CGI is fun and all, there aren't many things that can match the personal imagination of the original. We're still waiting for our shipment of Spelljammer books and restocks to arrive from the local distributor, but in the meantime, we figured it'd be nice to have all the D&D books in one place. Check out our Dungeons & Dragons range on the Webstore

7 Wonders Architects – Building Upon The Shoulders Of Giants

7 WONDERS: ARCHITECTS NOW AVAILABLE AT GAMES @ PI AND WEBSTORE Hey PI-Fans, It's taken a long, meandering road, but 7 Wonders: Architects, a new addition to the 7 Wonders family of games has hit our shelves. Comfortably slotting itself in between the two-player head to head gameplay of 7 Wonders Duel and the full complexity of a game of regular 7 Wonders sits Architects, making it an excellent introductory title for new players getting into the hobby. This streamlined approach makes it far more approachable especially for people starting out who might find themselves overwhelmed with the scope and complexity of the mainline title.   7 Wonders Architects borrows many of the resource management and draft aspects from 7 Wonders but makes a conscious effort to avoid overloading players with choices. Each turn, a player may draft resources from one of three cards presented to them which they will [...]

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.
