Polyhedron Collider Decorum Board Game Review

It has been said (I’m sure) that games are an attempt to simulate and distil life, therefore, the closer a game comes to encapsulating the essence of that activity i.e. farming or building a rail network, the better the game is.  By this measure, Decorum it could be argued is hands down the best game ever made.  The problem is, trying to agree on how to decorate your house with your significant other is something I don’t want to do in real life, let alone in a game.

Polyhedron Collider Board Game Review Rise & Fall
Rise & Fall is a great big open world civ building game, with light rules but with a great deal of intricacy.  The game starts with literally building the unique world in which you'll play, its a game about creativity: create the world, create your empire, and don't mess it up!

Polyhedron Collider Uluk Board Game Review

Uluk is like a cake.  Like a birthday cake or something like that.  A good quality sponge with some jam and cream slapped on top, followed by another layer of sponge, then all dressed in icing or buttercream and covered in chocolate or sparkles etc.  This may sound like an odd analogy, but in a game about harvesting ingredients and making meals it's quite apt and will hopefully make sense as you read on.

Moon is a pass and play board game of building the most fantastic base on the lunar surface, a place where the denizens of Earth will flock to explore and experience the sun cresting the curve of our planet, to feel weightless and something else.  Some folk will say this game is like another well-known drafting game, but those people are idiots.

Akropolis Board Game Review

Come and build your city, your Acropolis! Command the high ground and adorn the hill with lush gardens, dispersed markets, grand temples and lest we forget the barracks to protect your homes and people.

In other words, Akropolis is a 3D tile-laying board game of building an ancient Greek city, in short, it is bloody brilliant and I strongly suspect this will be a mainstay of my gaming shelf for a very long time.  So if that’s all you’ve come to this review for, there you go, just go and buy it for an extremely reasonable 25 rips; but, if you’d like to know how and why this game deserves some of your precious table time, read on:
