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.

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something...rude?  This week’s News Collider is looking to the new autonomous games studio from Wizards of the Coast headed up by former Bioware writer, and then leaps back a few centuries to early Viking invasions of England before taking a quick look at some of the happenings going on in the world of board gaming business.

The boys are back to the normal format after the Christmas and New Year excitement, and they’ve obviously forgotten how to record a podcast.

We look at Isle of Cats from City of Games, and Architects of the West Kingdom from Carphill games before delving into the burgeoning mail bag and answering questions about miniature games on Kickstarter, how can production be improved and Andy playing with his meeple under the table.

Polyhedron Collider Kitten and Tinderblox Boardgame Kickstarter Review

Dexterity games, it seems are on the up and up, and mint tin games are cool too.  And cats, (nearly) everyone loves cats.  And fire.  Let's face it fire has always been cool.  So here comes two mint tin dexterity games about flaming, one about cats and another about fire.

But there's more to the News Collider than just RPGs this week though, so grab your cuppa and read on.
