The Covid-19 lockdown may be easing in England, but don’t worry as the boys from Polyhedron Collider are keeping safe and playing even more games online. But we’re not the only ones, as Comic Relief played Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition this week, with references to Boo, Tiger King and bread curses. They’re not the only ones playing D&D 5E as Steve and Andy talk about their initial thoughts on the Dungeons and Dragons Essentials Kit and its adventure The Dragon of Icespire Peak, were we learn that Rory doesn’t like wizards. We also give our first impressions on the Alien Roleplaying Game.

We also venture into some board games, as Steve talks about “Go with extra steps” game Mitropia and Steve and Andy talk about Eternal Palace, the latest dice placement game from Alley Cat Games which is all about creating beautiful works of art.


Lock down may continue, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop! Through the power of the internet the boys continue to utilise the power of Tabletopia, Tabletop Simulator and Roll20 to bring you another round of board gaming chat. We talk about our endeavours playing Teotihuacan, Great Western Trail and Roll Player and even manage to bring you a little news.

We then go into an in depth chat about Storm King’s Thunder for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition and we’ll be bringing you a spoiler filled chat very soon!.

Polyhedron Collider Episode 81: Scythe, Lords of Waterdeep and Netrunner

We're all stuck in lockdown, which means we can’t make it to our usual board game and roleplaying game meet ups. But that doesn’t stop Steve and Andy from exploring ways in which we can play board games online.

We talk through the Steam versions of Scythe, Lords of Waterdeep and Gloomhaven and have a look at dedicated platforms such as Jinteki.net, Tabletop Simulator and Tabletopia and talk about Airecon.


At Airecon 2020 Polyhedron Collider recorded a live session of our unique brand of board game banter but because we couldn’t be bothered preparing any notes we let the audience choose the topics for the show.

Andy, Jon and Steve talk about beginners advice for new Dungeons and Dragons dungeon masters, leaving the Cyclons out of Battlestar Galactica and what games to bring to a convention.


To celebrate the launch of the Kickstarter for Dark Ages, the new game from Adam KwapiƄski, designer of Lords of Hellas and Nemesis, we are launching a very special competition in association with our god friends at Board & Dice.
Polyhedron Collider Episode 80: Noctiluca, Horrified and Port Royal

The HMS Polyhedron Collider is still at sea without a full crew, and without its trusty navigator Andy, Jon and Steve drifted into dangerous waffle waters. But never fear our intrepid crew are still able to keep things ship shape with a hold full of table top gaming chat.

After picking over the depleted news stores we take set sail for the black lagoon in Horrified, catch jellyfish in Noctiluca and hire a capable crew in Port Royal

Board Games News Collider Entertainment One Hasbro Treasure Chest of IPs, Kickstarter United, Games Workshops Head of Sales joins Steamforged GAmes, Avengers Play Dungeons and Dargons

This week’s News Collider is a bit of a flashback issue as we continue exploring and discussing some evolving news items including the Hasbro Entertainment One acquisition, the Kickstarter Union as well as noting that another member of Games Workshop’s senior team has left for greener pastures.

And then we talk about the latest Disney Pixar movie.

For me, whenever someone mentions an architect, I get an image in my mind of a slender chap in a city centre studio apartment, wearing a rollneck top, rimless glasses, slicked back greying hair and a taste for jazz. Pretty much all the things that I am not, aside from my greying hair. Time, it seems, makes victims of us all.
