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.

00:25:23 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.
