Five years ago, three geeks walked into a pub, and several fine ales later decided it would be a great idea to start a table top gaming podcast. We've now recorded many episodes of board game and RPG reviews, discussion and ramshackle nonsense.

To celebrate our 100th episode we choose our top ten best board and roleplaying games to review and discuss, and get well wishing messages (kind of) from folks like the Broken Meeple, The Secret Cabal and Who Dares Rolls.

Games Mentioned

00:09:04 Teotihuacan: City of Gods
00:20:44 Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game
00:29:36 Waggle Dance

Jon claws his way out of his baby-induced sleep-deprived fog to join Andy and Steve for another hour and a bit of top board game banter. In the news we explore Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything and the UK Games Expo Awards. We then take a deep look at Viking themed Raiders of the North Sea, protect the world from invading aliens in Under Falling Skies and become property moguls in Streets, the new game from the developers of Villagers.

Episode 86 of Polyhedron Collider is the best tabletop gaming podcast ever made, and anyone who says otherwise is wrong!
The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the news about that Restoration Games trademarking the name Heroquest Legacy. We get excited about the chance to play the best board game ever made in legacy format, and quote lines from the best YouTube video ever made.
The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the review of Agra. Curry is the finest meal in all the land, and perfect for feeding to tired workers in this Indian themed euro worker placement board game.
The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the discussion about Everdell. Look at the badgers, the foxes, the weasel, and the enormous tree that blocking the board. Actually, forget about the tree. Lets just put the cards on the table.
The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the review of Alien the roleplaying game. Explore the bleak expanse of cold dead space, while being terrorised Xenomorphs ready to rip out you throat and spill acidic blood all over you.

The entire Polyhedron Collider crew is back, for what feels like the first time in forever. It does mean we talk about Jon's lack of sleep, but it also means we can have a damn good chat about board games and tabletop RPGs.

We discuss news about the latest adventure for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Rime of the Frostmaiden, and lament the lack of high level campaigns before venturing into the world of video games with Elite Dangerous, Frostpunk and Baldurs Gate 3. With the news of a new battlemap editor in Inkarnate, we discuss the merits and flaws of Inkarnate, Dungeon Painter Studio and Campaign Cartographer.

Sticking with the theme, the Andy and Steve talk about Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale. Andy then has to decide between Roll PLayer Adventures and buying a new kitchen floor before we have a good long chat about our experiences with Star Trek Adventures the Tabletop RPG from Modiphius.
