Episode 125 - Thunderbirds Weather Machine Kingdom Death Monster

Back with a heavy portion of board gaming banter, the boys from the PHC talk about food poisoning, brush stealing kittens, Thunderbirds, Weather Machine and Kingdom Death Monster. We then reach into the overflowing mail bag to ponder what we would do with more time and are games getting to nice.

Its back to the regular format, and we kick things off with an in depth look into the D&D OGL debacle, before trying to work out what the hell is going on in Tiletum, and printing money in QE.

The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 123 - The games we are looking forward to in 2023

It’s time to gaze into the crystal ball and consult the tarot deck we list the board games and tabletop roleplaying games that we are looking forward to playing in 2023. It is of course an eclectic mix of heavy eurogames, miniature laden dungeon crawls, and fantasy RPGs.

The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 122 - The Best Games we Played in 2022

2022 has drawn to a close, so the boys from PHC size up their favourite games of the year, or at least their favourite games they've played this year, as all four podcasters can't seem to count.

In addition to the best of the best, we also look back at our biggest dissapointments, while Andy tries to award his insert of choice, but gets derailed in the process by Sid.

Polyhedron Collider Board Game Review Arborea

Arborea is a fantastic explosion of colour, intricate detail and a devilish knot of strategy.  There is a lot going on, a lot for your eyes to take in and a lot to think about, but once you pare it all back, the premise of the game is straightforward, it’s a worker placement game, after all, so your turn comes down to placing a worker, activating workers and clearing down your turn.  Keep these three things held firmly in your mind and you will make it through this game.
This article is here to help you buy an awesome board game-related gift for your friend, colleague or loved one.  If you are new to the hobby of tabletop gaming, or just looking to buy a gift for someone that is, we here at Polyhedron Collider, are going to help you out.

We’ll have suggestions for various budgets and we’ll try to cover all corners of tabletop gaming.  However, we won’t be making suggestions to go and buy the latest and hottest game as buying games themselves for someone else can be quite delicate and can be highly subjective.  Instead, the aim here is to suggest tabletop game adjacent products that will enhance and complement a current collection.

Important to mention that we are not affiliated with any of the companies listed here.  Polyhedron Collider has not and will not receive anything should you choose to follow any of these suggestions or links.  Everything listed here is based on our own experience and personal wish lists. 
Bonfire Board Game Review

Bonfire is a game that gives you options with a side of options.  It’s a game where you have to meticulously plan your turns well in advance, you have to consider not only what actions you need to take to realise your plan, you have to plan how you are going to get the actions in the first place.  There are lots of moving pieces, and although the theme is almost transparent, everything just seems to click and come together seamlessly.
Waggle Dance 2nd Edition Board Game Review

Don’t be misled by the bright and vibrant art in this game.  Don’t let the cute dice with bees on or the colourful wooden bits distract you.  This game may look light and cheerful, but it is not, the simple rules of this dice placement game quickly build within a few turns you will feel the full weight of each of your decisions.
Polyhedron Collider Canvas Finishing Touches Board Game Review

Simply put, Finishing Touches gives you more Canvas.  All the things that are good about Canvas, well, there’s more of that stuff in this expansion too.  It’s the second expansion for the rather innovative game of creating works of art one layer at a time.  That cool innovative stuff has already happened, it’s already there in the DNA of this game and this expansion isn’t trying to add any more.  What Finishing Touches is doing is building on that foundation and giving you some more stuff that you enjoy when you play.
