Yes, it’s time for UK Games Expo 2018 so fire up the hype machine, set it to maximum chat and put on your convention pants to see what’s got us at Polyhedron Collider more excited than a Jack Russell who’s been fed coffee powder and just been told it’s time for walkies.

I have just said “wow” out loud. I’ve turned over a card in Blight Chronicles: Agent Decker during my third game and revealed a card that has just surprised me, surprised me because the effect it could have on my deck is both really clever and potentially very useful, but it’s another card to add to my deck which is already getting bloated and the myriad of decisions available to me have been laid open.
