2020 Most Anticipated Games Best Kickstarter 2 Header

This is the Polyhedron Collider Most Anticipated Games (that we know about) that are coming to Kickstarter in 2020…Part Two.


DON'T PANIC! Part One is here.  Up next in this series of Most Anticipated Games is Games Arriving from Kickstarter and then finally Games Coming Direct into Retail.  Some of these we’ve already discussed in the Podcast (Episode 77) but many were not, mainly because our glorious leadr, Steve said we could only pick four games each.

The rebellion has begun.

Welcome to the News Collider, a weekly newsletter that collates, arranges and redirects the best and most interesting boardgame and tabletop gaming news back to you.

Now that we have Little Christmas and New Year’s out of the way the tabletop gaming industry is waking up after it’s festive slumber as tidbits and announcements have been peppering inboxes and social media forums over the last week or so for many of us, so here they all are neatly assembled and summed up with pictures.
Polyhedron Collider Episode 77 - The Games we are looking forward to in 2020

2020 is upon us, which means another year of potentially amazing games is ahead of us.

Join Andy, Jon, Rory and Steve as they try and pick four games each that they are the most excited for, but ultimately fail and talk about raising children, building extensions, college rock and the dangers of storing games in your loft.


Imperial Settlers Roll and Write Board Game Review

Imperial Settlers Roll & Write has been fermenting on my game shelf and in my brain since I picked up a copy at the UK Games Expo 2019.  In fact, the review I started writing in the summer of 2019 is very different from the one you are about to read.  Most odd of all though is that aspects of the game that caused me some vexation and annoyance are some that I now see and appreciate the value in.

There should still be some tokens in the box though, that hasn’t changed.  

And a pencil sharpener (if you have a pencil in the box there should also be a means to sharpen it - and if it’s a plastic moulded insert there damn sure needs to be space for a pencil sharpener!).

Polyhedron Collider Episode 76: The Best Games of 2019

It’s the end of the year, so that can only mean one thing; our best of 2019 round up!

We look at the best games of the year that we’ve played, the most disappointing games of the year and announce the all-important Andy’s Insert of choice.

polyhedron collider episode 75 Tapestry - Cooper Island - On the Underground

It’s a particularly mischievous episode, complete with awful Scottish accents, Steve and Jon recount their experiences from Gridcon, including Cooper Island, Ravage and playing Tapestry with David Turczi, while Rory and Andy tell us all about On the Underground.

There’s also the latest news from the ferrets as the One Ring contract dispute, a D&D movie and the wee Tagies.

We also announce a mew member of the PHC crew.

I suppose it makes sense that as we approach the shortest day of the year that the world of board gaming news would slow down.  Let’s face it, we’re all winding down now anyway (or wish we were) and we’re getting ready to kick back and play board games over a nice long Christmas break.

With that being said, it’s not a complete stop, there are a couple of nuggets of news stories worthy of your time and attention before we send the ferrets off until the new year.

In this very special birthday issue of the News Collider (my birthday, not the news Collider, but you already knew that since you clearly remember the party we had at the end of October).  I'd love to be very indulgent and tell you about the new Batman board game which has as much focus on being a detective as well as being a ninja, or the amazing worker placement war game based on Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight novels...but neither of those things are real.

Instead, I can tell you about the forthcoming Rivers of London RPG from Chaosium, that the UK Games Expo tickets went on sale for the end of May 2020 and then there's is the big news about the Gloomhaven sequel that I find hard to get excited about because I've still. only played one game of the original.
