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.

Mar 13, 2020

To celebrate the launch of the Kickstarter for Dark Ages, the new game from Adam Kwapiński, designer of Lords of Hellas and Nemesis, we are launching a very special competition in association with our god friends at Board & Dice.


Dark Ages is a historically-based civilization-building game that features an innovative action selection mechanism. As long as your action markers remain on the board, you may be able to gain secondary bonus actions whenever you or another player repeats the action.


While Dark Ages features objectives commonly found in 4X games — encouraging you to explore nearby regions, expand your territory, exploit the resources, and exterminate your opponents — it does so featuring several Euro-centric mechanisms. Collect resources from lands under your control, using them to build up your cities and fortifications. Some building types provide several ways for you to gain important in-game advantages, while others enhance your military strength or simply score you victory points. As you expand your territory, you will lay claim to noble titles, acquire new technologies, and train your military units. Each region and leader offer asymmetrical choices with their unique abilities.


Dark Ages launches on 16th March and you could win yourself a copy. The winner will receive a copy of Dark Ages including all stretch goals, with free worldwide shipping to anywhere except Brazil, Libya, Syria, the Philippines, Reunion and Venezuela. The winner will also be provided with a letter bestowing upon them the title of Champion of the Unified Kingdom.


To win this prize we want you to design a heraldry or coat of arms for Polyhedron Collider. Send that design to us in any format you want, but please send all entry to steve@polyhedroncollider.com

You have until 20 March 2020 to submit your design.

Welcome along to another analysis paralysis inducing chat with the boys from Polyhedron Collider, who are cruder than normal in celebration of episode 69 (dude). We analyse the latest tabletop gaming news, talking about the latest events in board games and pen and paper RPGS and then get into some deep and meaningful game chat.


In this week’s episode we talk about Matchify, get in a very quick game of Ragusa and have a rather deep analysis of heavy euros Pipeline and Barrage. We then pop over to Ireland to save the world in Mournequest.
