Doors Are Open

Hey PI-Fans,It’s been what? More than two months?The doors will be open at 1.00 pm and it’s good to be back. If you haven’t already checked out our current operating hours, you should probably go take a look. There have been some changes to the way we run things, but at heart, we’re still the same old advocates of ‘Play Games, Have Fun.’Of course, we’re not about to waste time sitting on our laurels. We’ve had an amazing influx of titles for our shelves in the last few months, and we think they’re deserving of a recap or two.

Star Wars X-Wing 2E Review

The Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game (or X-Wing 2E) has always been a tight little dogfight war-game – Not only does it possess the pedigree of the Star Wars universe, but it’s lovingly detailed pre-assembled and pre-painted ships adds an additional layer of allure for the collector.A tight ruleset and a movement mechanic that requires you to second guess your opponent before committing to your own movement can create some epic space dogfights between Star Wars stalwarts like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, but X-Wing 2E also draws upon the full scope of its massive universe as factions like the Resistance, First Order, Galactic Republic, Separatist Alliance take to the Stars, bringing fabled names like Padmé Amidala and Poe Dameron with them.Whether you’re a parent using X-Wing to experience a Galaxy Far Far Away with a child or a seasoned wargamer looking for a new dogfight experience, X-Wing 2E might [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
