Grab your pen and pencils, your favourite dice and your silly voices, because it’s time for the Polyhedron Collider boys to talk about tabletop RPGs.

We’ll be covering Andy’s recent Tyranny of Dragons campaign for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition, looking at some tasty Kickstarter roleplaying games and answering your questions about pen and paper RPGs.

Kickstarter Highlights Titan, Godspeed, Forbidden Lands, Root RPG, Carbon City Zero

This is just the beginning.  We are on the road to Essen Spiel 2019 now so expect a slew of amazing games to be making their appearance not just on Kickstarter, but everywhere, but this being the Kickstarter Highlights, we’ll keep our scope limited to crowdfunded games.

This week we have a number of debut designers, as well as a smattering of RPG veterans, bring us new and exciting games with twists on familiar concepts and mechanics.  So whether you’re looking for a light, medium or heavyweight game, or a new RPG system or campaign, we’ve got you covered.

MourneQuest - Cover

MourneQuest is based on the books of the same name by Garry McElherron in which a lad called Jack meets a clurichaun (not a leprechaun) called Cobs and together they accidentally begin to set loose the Nightmares who's only goal is to unleash the Shimnavore; a creature of ancient Irish legend of terrible power. Your role is to play as Jack, Cobs or one of their buddies to try to keep these awesome gribblies locked up forever. Fail and it’s bad news for everyone concerned. So with stakes suitably high, we are set up for some epic beastie-kicking action.

Welcome along to another analysis paralysis inducing chat with the boys from Polyhedron Collider, who are cruder than normal in celebration of episode 69 (dude). We analyse the latest tabletop gaming news, talking about the latest events in board games and pen and paper RPGS and then get into some deep and meaningful game chat.

In this week’s episode we talk about Matchify, get in a very quick game of Ragusa and have a rather deep analysis of heavy euros Pipeline and Barrage. We then pop over to Ireland to save the world in Mournequest.

Kickstarter Highlights - Donning The Purple Votes and Virtues Expansion, District 9 The Board Game, Fired Up, Yedo Deluxe

This week’s Kickstarter Highlights sports the strap line “The Remake, the relaunch and the expansion” because it features, well...a remake/second edition, some Kickstarter relaunches and a PHC much anticipated expansion.

In a world full of unpredictable tariffs, trade wars and the seemingly never ending Brexit saga we can at least rely on board games for some stability…

I beg your pardon?  They’re changing Cluedo? Cludeo!?  And the Origins awards?  And what are those cute figurine things...D&D Funko Pops!  Has the world gone mad? 
Kickstarter Highlights - Board Game Book, Merchants Cove, Successors, Solar Storm

Did you miss me?  It’s okay, I understand, look we all need a little break from Kickstarter now and then, and sometimes there just isn’t enough new stuff to warrant bringing to your eyeballs.  Here at Polyhedron Collider we don’t simply pay lip service to any old campaign, no, we’re only going to talk about games we (well, at least one of us) is actually interested in, or in Andy’s case, are backing backing.  

So, this week we have a heavy wargame, a book, some asymmetrical shenanigans and a very challenging co-op. 

Your spaceship is heading for disaster. It’s been caught in the gravity well of a star and the engines have decided to conk out at the worst possible time.  The only solution is to divert power from all the other systems in the ship and jump start the engines. The problem is that the ship is very close to the sun and systems are starting to get damaged from the rapidly increasing heat levels.  

In Solar Storm your job, is to race around the ship, rapidly fixing the ship’s failing systems, while at the same time attempting to kickstart the engines and get out of there before it all gets hotter than the inside of a McDonald’s apple pie.
The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 68 - Sagrada, Quacks of Quedlinburg and Solar Storm

Prepare yourselves for another generous helping of tabletop gaming chat, as the boys from Polyhedron Collider talk all things board games, card games and RPGS (as well as some rambling diversions regarding Jon’s taste in TV programs and Andy going to a festival).

In this episode Jon tells us about his first Dungeon Mastering experience in An Ogre and his Cake, Andy cooks up explosive potions in the Quacks of Quedlinburg, Jon talks us through the stained glass dice builder Sagrada and Steve gets dangerously close to the sun in coop kickstarter game Solar Storm.
