Just in time to miss Halloween, the boys return for the Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 13.  We recount our time at AireCon 2016 where we played a whole host of games and took part in our first media panel.

Steve and Jon attempt a séance in Mysterium, Andy becomes blind but unfortunately can still speak as all three take part in the social deduction party game Two Rooms and a Boom, a conversation about one of favourite game Neuroshima Hex leads to a chat about The Edge Dawnfall, Deep Madness and Siege of Citadel Kickstarters, we revisit dreams in Dixit, build up relations with our neighbours in Between Two Cities and attempt to troll Luke Hector from the Broken Meeple in Android Mainframe.

We also dip into the mailbag for some questions about board game expansions, the Asmodee super entity and who we’d like to get onto the show.

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.
