Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne Review

Hey PI-Fans, How's your week going so far? We've got a new game review for you folks written by our guest reviewer: Wesley Tay!  In a nutshell: Game of Thrones: Iron Throne is great for gamers who love politicking, backstabbing and scheming. You don't have to be a Thrones fan to enjoy the game, because it's really all about dishing on others and protecting your own interests and people. No hard feelings, just business! And you all can have a good laugh afterwards.    Pick up the game at our webstore!    Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne Review What it's About The only thing worse than people who share spoilers are pedantic people, who ask questions like “Why did Tyrion do this? It makes no sense!” Or “How did Baelish get away with the that?” Just wait for the reveals then complain about it! As a fan of role [...]

Restocks – Exploding Kittens & Throw Throw Burrito! – September 6, 2020

Hey PI-Fans,   Good Sunday morning to you! We received lots of Kittens and Burritos yesterday evening!   Exploding Kittens & Expansions     The Original Exploding Kittens is a hot potato, party game favorite! The basic premise is: don't get the exploding kitten! Play cards to defuse, distract the kitten, attack other players and basically stop yourself from being taken out of the game! It's a wacky, goofy, frantic game full of silly!   If you need the game for more people, there's the Exploding Party Pack which scales the game to 10 players!   If you're playing with grown ups who want to really hang lose and have fun, there's the NSFW (not safe for work) Exploding Kittens box.     There are 3 different expansions for classic Exploding Kittens:   1. Imploding Kittens - which scales the game to 6 players and even has a cardboard 'cone [...]
