Berlin Escalated Quickly? – 03/02/24

Hey PI-Fans, With CNY slowly creeping up upon everyone, we've managed to sneak in another pile of stuff into the store, including of a couple of new fast playing board games this week. While Ticket to Ride: Berlin and That Escalated Quickly represent brand new titles finding their way to the shelf, beloved titles like Wingspan, 7 Wonders and Azul have been reloaded. If you need a stockpile of CNY supplies, don't forget to grab a stash of Bicycle plastic or plastic clay-filled Poker Chips - we won't tell you how to use your gaming supplies, but we have some ideas. Ticket to Ride: Berlin provides another standalone small box twist on the classic Ticket to Ride formula with players managing both the Berlin Straßenbahn (Streetcar) network and the U-bahn (Subway) in order to connect multiple destinations within the city.  In this fast-paced Ticket to Ride game, players race one another to [...]

Restock Waves – 26/1/24

Hey PI-Fans, One of the things I simultaneously love and hate about this industry is the restock cycle. Occasionally, part of it is just surrendering to the vicissitudes of fate and just letting the vagaries of fate dictate what meanders onto shelves for the week. With shipping being what it is, it's probably better to just sit back, let things fall where they may and hope for the best. That said, it isn't all bad to play with the cards on hand. After all Space Cowboy's Spellbook has magically materialized on the shelves, and the asdfmovie card game Muffin Time has appeared in it's wake. On top of that, we've managed to secure stocks of the asymmetrical conflict game Root and the social deduction themed Deception: Murder in Hong Kong. There's also plenty of other stuff in the pipeline on top of this including restocks of our mainstays like Dixit, [...]

The Post-Holiday Stockup – 16/1/24

Hey PI-Fans, The Post-New Year period is one where stores assess the post-Christmas rush and get to work filling up the shelves. Games @ PI is no exception, and the team has been hard at work ensuring we've a store full of fancy. This isn't to say we've been neglecting the weird and wonderful of the board game world of course - after all, we just magicked up a stack of Decrypto and Wavelength for the social gamers while resource management fans can grab a copy of Wingspan, Brass Lancashire or Brass Birmingham off the shelf. Of course, if you're after something new to broaden your palette, we recommend The Vale of Eternity, an EXCELLENT little creature collector card game by Korean publisher Mandoo games.   Board and Card Game New Releases: Decrypto 5th Anniversary Edition The Vale of Eternity Important Restocks: Brass Birmingham Brass Lancashire Wavelength Wingspan [...]

Random Roll Ups – Store Restocks 21/11

Hey PI-Fans, Nothing says random quite like a strange smattering of board games, card games, miniatures and dice. This, on the other hand does happen from time to time, since the restocks for the week include a pile of weirdness with Renegade Games' Aggretsuko Work/Rage Balance, Leder Games' Ahoy. You'll also be seeing more of Brass Lancashire, Camel Up and Cascadia, as these amazing titles have drifted in aboard the same boat. On the miniature front, few of BattleTech's mercenary units have quite the storied (and strange) reputation of Snord's Irregulars, a famed unit notorious for their tendency towards insubordination and their eccentric magpie-like obsession with "collecting" (or looting) valuables. The Snord's Irregulars Assault Lance leads another wave of BattleTech Merc boxes,  with no guarantee of resupply once they disappear. Then come the Dice. Loads and loads of dice as a long delayed shipment finally completes the journey, leaving us [...]

Store Restocks and the Law of Shipment Attraction

Hey PI-Fans, For those of you who are curious about how logistics for a game company works, the honest answer is it doesn't. No matter how one plans shipments and plot and spaces things out... you can't control the shipping pipeline and while the best planning does mitigate things to an extent, sometimes it all just arrives at once. This is one of those times. The New Arrival shelf is absolutely brimming with piles of new stuff, including the long-awaited return of a slab of Avalon Hill Classics. Meanwhile, the football manager board game Eleven bursts back onto the scene with expansions to keep even the most jaded of coaches happy. Those seeking a more solitary gaming experience can pore over the details with the return of all three MicroMacro: Crime City sets while legacy game fans can look into the massive undertaking that is Oath.     In Oath, [...]

Fighters, Felines and Funfairs

Hey PI-Fans, We've furnished a fantastical feast of fancy fun. Now that I've gotten that out of my system, it's worth mentioning that one of our long delayed shipments has suddenly just popped out of thin air and made it's way to our shelves. Spread across the New Stuff shelf are three new titles and a pair of new expansions from some wildly varying from head-to-head wargames for those of the strategic persuasion to adorable furniture battles of feline domination. Card gamers can likewise, celebrate the arrival of new Pokemon, with a small restock of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet 151 Elite Trainer Boxes, Mini Tins and Zapdos Collection Boxes.
