Jon is back! And so Steve and Andy regale him with some more exciting game we played at the UK Games Expo and talk about some 100% fresh board games and tabletop gaming Kickstarters.

We build theme parks, we go to sea and raid as a Viking and then divvy out the spoils of war, go fishing and become estate agents and detectives. We also discuss drinking songs and how pasties are hotter than the core of the Sun.

Sorry for the audio quality in this episode – we have had a myriad of problems throughout.

Suffering from the sleep deprivation that comes from the 3 days at the UK Games Expo, Andy and Steve try to download from their brain everything they saw at the UK Games Expo 2017. They failed, which is why this episode covers just half of the games we saw.

In a desperate effort to clear the decks before the UK Games Expo, the boys from Polyhedron Collider cast their eye over the latest batch of board games and tabletop Kickstarters.  Steve faces the crushing difficulty and divisive gameplay of Dark Souls and then all three go to war with big mechs and sneaky spies in Farsight. Andy is one with the weather as he moves like the wind in Petrichor before joining Steve on the dungeon crawling of Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder. Finally Steve tries one of the latest Escape the Room games in Exit the Secret Lab.

Steve, Andy, his potty mouth, Jon and his creaky chair have come together for another batch of board gaming chat. In part one of a two parts special (I say special, its more that we waffled for too long and had to chop it down) we go through Andy’s Kickstarter habit, have a discussion on the pronunciation of the word Brass, Nandos and how best to censor Andy.

We also talk about some games, since that’s why we’re here. Andy takes us to Mars, in a Story of Civilisation, Steve ventures through time in TIME Stories Expedition Endurance, Jon is all at sea with Tsuro and we all learn some valuable science from Dr Lewis in Planetarium.

00:00:00 Intro
00:02:23 What has Andy Backed this week? Brass, Hannibal, City of Kings and Rise to Nobility
00:12:08 Mars a Story of Civilization
00:25:13 T.I.M.E Stories: Expedition Endurance

Its time, yet again, for another dose of board gaming chat.  Jon is off biking, or some other strenuous activity that Andy and Steve find far too much like hard work, and so they substitute a brummy for a redkneck as they are joined by James Hudson from Druid City Games.  James tells us all about his new game, The Grimm Forest, and goes into detail about publishing, Kickstarter, distribution and Peppa Pig.

The Grimm Forest launches on Kickstarter on 21st March.

Jan 14, 2017

We kick off the New Year with by kicking some demon butt in Doom: The Board Game, we investigate the hype of Mechs vs. Minions and realise we know nothing about our nation’s past with Timeline: British History.  We also discuss board game profit margins, the new Roborally and boardgamegeek.com.

00:02:26 Andy spools up his BFG9000 to talk about Doom: The Board Game

00:37:50 Our Mechs vs. Minions chat leads on to a discussion about distribution, mark up on board games and the fabled friendly local game store.
00:41:36 The new Roborally has grabbed our attention
00:45:21 We find that Jon is rubbish at history with Timeline: British History
00:53:16 Talisman! (just for Board Deck & Dice)

Dec 29, 2016

It’s the end of the year, so between filling their bellies with roast turkey and figgy pudding and the inevitable hangover that follows New Year and Hogmanay the boys gather to look back at the best board, card and tabletop games of 2016.

 00:00:00 Introduction. Sorry for the delay in releasing an episode but due to disruptions in our day to day life Steve has been rather busy.

00:03:03 Because no-one not called Tom Vasel can play every game in existence we make a note of the games missing from our best of list. For some reason the boys then digress with reminiscing about Bulls Eye.

00:05:48 Arkham Horror: The Card Game

00:10:28 Scythe

00:15:51 Codenames: Pictures

00:21:07 We award Paul Grogan of Gaming Rules, Games Personality of the Year

Welcome listeners of illusion to the podcast of confusion. We, Polyhedron Collider, challenge you to the ultimate adventure. The next episode of the podcast is complete, the entrance to the dungeon is open so enter listener.

 

The Polyhedron Collider Crew party up and head into the dungeon adventure that is the world of board games, card games, roleplaying games and the world of tabletop gaming.  Andy tells us about his experience of Knightmare Live, Steve and Andy explore the kickstarted world of Legends Untold before escaping the locals of Innsmouth in Mansions of Madness and Jon takes us through Dobble Star Wars. We also delve into the mailbag and talk about our pet peeves in gaming, rulebooks and augmented reality and VR.

 

00:00:00 Intro: Explicit Content, how Apple has got our game and Steve is moving away.

 

00:02:59 Andy relives a ropey TV show from the 90s, as he talks about Knightmare Live

 

00:12:03 Andy and Steve delve further into a dungeon with a review of Legends Untold, an adventuring card game on Kickstarter right now. You can go back it at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/505428038/legends-untold-as-deep-as-an-rpg-as-fast-as-a-card?ref=PolyhedronCollider

 

00:23:10 A quick shout out to Ominoes, that is also on Kickstarter and every member of the podcast crew loves. Go back it now at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/258813455/ominoes-the-dice-game-for-everyone?ref=PolyhedronCollider

 

00:25:23 Andy and Steve both go mad exploring the Cthulhu invested great houses of the Mansions of Madness. They discuss the use of apps in board games and the increasing cost of board games.

The boys also discuss Cthulhu fiction and recommend some Lovecraft stories to get you in the mood. You can download the entire Lovecraft collection for you e-reader over at http://arkhamarchivist.com/free-complete-lovecraft-ebook-nook-kindle/

 

00:44:59 All three boys have been rather silly and playing some Dobble Star Wars, which we all agree is ‘snap on crack’ and far more fun than it deserves to be.

 

00:51:15 Jon delves his hand deep into the mailbag and finds some juicy questions to be answered.

00:51:38 What are your pet peeves about gaming?

00:55:57 What makes a good rulebook?

01:00:58 Mars seems to be the most popular theme at the moment, what do we think will be the next big thing?

01:04:35 What are your thoughts on what Fantasy Flight Games might have up their sleeves to replace Games Workshop licenced products?

01:09:31 Do you think augmented reality, or VR, has a place in board games?

We talk about using the Microsoft Hololens for D&D which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/VX9TEADmVQ0

Nov 13, 2016

So what is it?

I’ve never seen one before, no one has, but I’m guessing it’s the Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 14. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. A black hole sucks time and matter out of the universe, the Polyhedron Collider Cast ejects tabletop gaming chat back into the universe.

So that thing is spuing board game banter back into the universe?

Precisely, the Polyedron Collider crew have played Battlestar Galactica, digressed about Red Dwarf and had a lot of fun with Captain Sonar. They’ve also answered questions from the mailbag about which designers they would like to play with, talk about their D&D characters’ voices and break down their Christmas wish lists.

So what is it?

00.00.00 Intro

00.01.00 Battlestar Galactica

00.08.45 Talkie Toaster and Red Dwarf

00.14.50 Captain Sonar

Questions from the mail bag

00.23.34 Is there someone from the industry you’d like to play against at their own game?

00.25.39 Is Scythe not as good as everyone says it is?

00.26.53 Have you ever been offered to cover a game that is quite literally, complete and utter gash?

00.32.34 We know you like games, but do any of the Polyhedron Collider crew’s other halves get involved in the cardboard arena?

00.38.26 An off topic chat about Dungeons and Dragons

00.40.16 If you were playing roleplaying D&D, do you give your character a voice? And would you do the voice right now on air?

00.43.28 What has made our Christmas Lists?

We’ve just spent the weekend at AireCon, a gaming convention in Bradford UK. Together with Jay from Breacher18, Luke from the Broken Meeple and Rob from the Cult of the New Podcast we took part in a podcasters panel titled Five Games I Hate But Everyone Else Loves.

Will we hate your favourite game? Does Jon actually hate anything? Is Jay going to punch Luke? All will be revealed.

This is our first media panel, so we apologise for the audio quality.

Many thanks to Jay, Luke, Rob and everyone at Airecon.

The boys try and catch up with things after the UK Games Expo, unfortunately the number of games to talk about gets the boys in a twist and chaos ensues.  Jon gets his rhyming together in Obama Llama, Steve gets his escape pods and airlocks confused in Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space, Andy invades Rome in Hannibal and we all get political with Statecraft. 

Games mentioned:

  • Statecraft
  • Obama Llama
  • Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space
  • Nefarious
  • Dark Deeds
  • Dimensions
  • Hannibal: Rome vs Catharge
