Zachary Levi Joins Psych With Pineapple Incident

A glorious nerd moment happened on the set of the Psych movie.

Dule Hill starts it off holding a pineapple,

What up Psychos? Real quick. Pop question.

Then James Roday asks,

What is this called?

Suddenly Zachary Levi shows up and says,

I believe that’s a pineapple. Isn’t that right Chucksters?

For us Chucksters, we know that the pineapple is a sign of extreme danger.

This video was also how they’ve chosen to announce that Zachary has joined the cast of the movie.

Apparently, he is going to be playing the villain, hence his bleached blonde hair.

Pysch is due out this December, on the USA Network.

Avalon Hill Announces Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate

Avalon Hill has announced their newest game, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate.

The game takes the concept from Betrayal at House on a Hill and puts in into the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons and Dragons.

It will include 50 haunts, 47, location tiles, 86 cards, 18 monsters, and 12 adventurers.

The haunts in Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate pull from the legends and lore of Dungeon and Dragons and Baldur’s Gate, meaning D&D fans will find them very familiar.

In this version of Betrayal, Avalon Hill took the time to “clarify and streamline some of the rules fans may have found confusing”.

For anyone unfamiliar with Betrayal at House on A Hill, the game focuses on a haunted house.

Players randomly draw from the location tiles as they explore the house.

Somewhere during the exploration, a haunt is triggered and one of the players becomes the traitor.

Once that occurs, the rest of the players have one set of rules for dealing with the haunt, while the traitor has another.

Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is set for an October release.
