The Grimm Forest Board Game Review

Once upon a time there was a trio of men who had a severe obsession in board games. Because of this obsession, they spent many hours playing, discussing and criticising their games, arguing about which was best. Needless to say, they almost never agreed.

It turns out that on occasion, the stars do align and said trio of man-children do reach a consensus. Unfortunately for the Grimm Forest, it’s not a positive outcome.

Star Trek Adventures Review

Posted on February 15th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Awesome Games Coming in 2018: Part 3 Traditional Publishing
We finally arrive at our third and final part of our 2018 preview, and this has been without a doubt the most difficult part of the list to put together. I have taken input from all three members of the Polyhedron Collider team and our highlights were featured in our most recent Podcast episode. It has become apparent however just how much of a hype generating machine Kickstarter has become. I’ve managed to put a list of over 20 games that Kickstarter is bringing to us this year, but I have struggled to find just 10 games arriving via more conventional publishing means.  Is this because publishers are being more guarded with their announcements or is this because of the meteoric rise of Kickstarter?

Don’t forget to check out Part1, where we looked at games coming to Kickstarter this year, and Part 2, where we looked at the games we Kickstarted in the past and are expecting to be delivered in 2018.
