One-Man-Army-Corp

Hey PI-Fans, Today, I single-handedly launched an escort carrier, did the Kessel Run, returned to Hoth, cured diseases, ran from zombies, cracked the code, bribed the sheriff, saved the world, became a knight and visited the Sword Coast. Before noon. How's your day going? - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Currently Exhausted   Watch the spymaster bang their head on the table as they try to wrangle their team of uncooperative agents. In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to identify agents from their team via their codenames while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. Originally introduced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation as a bulk freighter, the sturdy Gozanti hull was re-purposed by the Galactic Empire. Now serving as escort [...]

New Year, New Toys

Happy New Year, PI-Fans, And welcome to 2016. Or given I'm posting this via remote upload, greetings from the past? How is the future? Are there any major developments I should know about? Is future me just as pedantic and annoying? I MUST KNOW. Anyway, in the future, all signs point to several new titles should become available for purchase. Lets go over a few shall we? - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Temporal Paradox From the mind of Antoine Bauza, designer of the award winning 7 Wonders, comes  7 Wonders DUEL; a head to head re-implementation of the  modern classic for two-players. Race to crush your opponent militarily or speed your way to victory through scientific developments. And in a pinch, leave your mark upon the world with a wonder that reshapes the game itself and grants you powerful abilities. In Colt Express: Horses & Stagecoach, your bandits now ride. Gallop after the speeding [...]

Happy New Year!

The new year is upon us! Happy 2016 everyone! Here's a little update at what's been going on at Games @ PI in the month of December. On December 4th 2015, our friend from Poland, Tytus, joined us here at our store for a little game of Warhammer 40,000 with our staff, Aaron! Despite some delays with the flight, Tytus managed to make it to our store with his little army of Blood Angels! Tytus' sanguinary priest is well painted despite his busy schedule. Left: Tytus had to have a little crash course on the rules since its been awhile since he last played. The 750 point game was didn't take too long and although Tytus lost the battle, both parties concluded their game with a firm handshake. If you're interested in an in-depth battle report on the game that Tytus and Aaron, you can check out Tytus' wargaming blog here! [...]

X-Wing: Captain Crash

Hey PI-Fans, Enjoy the X-Wing Miniatures game? Well... try your hand at the Games @ PI casual events - ever so often we get bored and roll out some really weird rule sets. Our next event is coming up on the 9th of January, so those poor fools above had better work on fixing that TIE. If what both the X-Wing flight-sims and the miniature game taught us holds true, CRASHING = BAD. Of course, on the other hand, setting up someone to crash with you is... slightly more entertaining. Captain Crash is a casual X-Wing event where scoring kills is... slightly less important than causing people to hit you... So. Strap in folks. It's gonna be bumpy. ______________________________________________________ Event Date: 9th Jan 2016, 2 pm. Fleet Construction: Bring a Fleet containing no more than 3 ships with a final pointage of not more that 75 points. All ships must be from the same faction. No player may field more [...]

To Boldly Go…

Please Pardon The Manager. He's clearly confused and it's Been A Long Day.   Hi PI-Fans, A Long Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away... Wait. Something isn't right. Sorry. Lets try that again. If I've learnt anything, it's that fandoms are non-exclusive - my love of Star Wars neither competes nor demeans my ability to appreciate Star Trek... Which is great, because even in this time of Star Wars mania, Star Trek 5 Year Mission is really really good game. Unless you're a redshirt. But. Hey. Who cares about the redshirts? - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Balancer of the Force. Command a 5-year mission aboard the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: Five Year Mission. NCC-1701 or NCC 1701-D, you ask? Why not both? Work together to resolve escalating series of alerts before the Enterprise is destroyed. Deal with injuries which lock dice out of play, circumvent ship damage, the prime directive, as well as the ever looming timer [...]
