Pour yourself a large glass of your tipple of choice, get yourself comfy, and get ready for another session of top quality board gaming chat from the boys at Polyhedron Collider.

Jon’s news ferrets have been hard at work, gathering the latest news and the hottest Kickstarter. When it comes to games, Steve is getting sticky with Folded Space and Vektorace, Andy goes down to the woods with Root and Jon conquers the solar system in Onward to Venus.

We then dive into the mailbag, and have a surprisingly mature discussion when we are asked if the board game bubble is about to burst.

Andy is busy moving house, or playing Deep Madness in any empty flat, so it’s just Jon and Steve on this episode and subsequently proceedings are much more relaxed. Pour yourself a drink (we recommend a nice dark beer to sip on) and get cosy as Jon and Steve take you through the latest news, visit Dinosaur Island and delve deep into Dungeons of Plunder.

We also answer questions from the mailbag, which all seem to be directed at Andy – d’oh!

00:04:45 Gen7: A Crossraods Game
00:09:44 CMON and A Song of Ice and Fire
00:13:19 Projectors for D&D

Warning: This podcast contains strong language and adult content

Any other podcast would make a big song and dance about releasing their 50th episode. Not the boys from the PHC, because they weren’t paying attention and didn’t realise they had reached such a prestigious milestone.

Instead they talk about four games that may well make their best of the year lists; Steve gets his arse handed to him by Arkham Horror 3rd Edition, Andy goes into a Deep Madness and Jon tackles Monolith Arena. Andy and Steve then quickly say how much they love Brass (Brarse), while Jon tackles the news and Steve’s delves deep into his sack, mail sack that is.

Games Mentioned

00:09:17 24 hours D&D event
00:11:04 Glen More 2 - Glen Morer
00:15:11 Pipeline
00:18:13 An ogre and his Cake
00:22:42 Arkham Horro 3rd Edition
00:32:42 221B Baker Street
00:35:51 Deep Madness
01:02:22 Monolith Arena
01:16:32 Brass Birmingham and Brass Lancashire
