Batman the Boardgame first look review

 Batman!

Quite frankly there is part of me that wants to leave this preview as just one word and some photos, but that would be unprofessional of me (although professionalism does seem to always be out of Polyhedron Collider’s grasp) so custom dictates I should annotate the pictures of the quite frankly gorgeous prototype minis with some explanation and musings.

Fog Of War Cards Review

Posted on June 14th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by


Battlefront will soon we releasing Command Cards.  The Command Cards, at this time, represent three releases.  One is specifically for the British, one for the Germans in MW and one that is not nation specific called the Fog Of War Cards.  Today, we will be taking a look at the Fog of War release and how it may affect play for Flames of War in the future for both casual and tournament play.

It is imperative to read and review the post on the use of the cards from the Flames of War website before you read the cards to understand how they are played.

Below are all the cards.  We review them in detail on the Why We Fight Podcast and I encourage you all to read through and draw your own conclusions.  We have a summary of our thoughts at the end of the article.  The cards are said to be used in the Dust Up and Free For All missions.  I believe that they could be incorporated in the Annihilation mission as well.  Currently, the cards are not designed to be used in any other missions.

UK Games Expo: Dice Forge First Look

Dice forge uk games expo review

If I was to simply say Dice Forge is Dominion but with dice,  this will not only convey the whole gist of Dice Forge, but also everything that may get you excited or worried about Libellud’s upcoming release. Asmodee and Esdevium were showing off a late prototype of the game at the UK Games Expo 2017 and I got myself a seat to grab a game, well actually my wife saw the game loved the artwork and quickly jumped at the two empty places to give Dice Forge a go.

Realm master board game kickstarter review

The more board games you play, the more you notice mechanics and concepts shared between various games. It’s actually one of those great things about learning to play a game, when you realise that there is a common DNA with another game, or a new game takes something familiar to you and mixes it up, using it in a way that you weren’t expecting. Unfortunately this sometimes leads to games feeling very similar, or sharing so many mechanics that it’s hard to differentiate them.

Farsight Kickstarter Review

Big bastard robots!

That’s what my podcast co-host and Polyhedron Collider writer said to me when I showed him some details about Farsight, the new game from Braincrack games that the entire Polyhedron Collider crew got to play on Tabletopia this week along with Lewis from Braincrack. And the game certainly is about big bastard robots, with a mix of game-play from Space Marine, Stratego and Heroes of Normandie.

City of Kings Kickstarter Review

For those of you who are avid listeners of, or even simply tolerate the Polyhedron Collider podcast, you’ll know that I’m a bit of a fan of hefty Euros. Dice are something that I see as an addition to a game that I can plan a strategy around rather than something that forms a core mechanic. Jon and Steve feel differently on this matter. Or to put it another way, they’re both wrong and need to go to their rooms and think about what they’ve been doing with their lives. If you let him, “Dice Chucker” Tudor would have a vat of the damn things in any game he could lay his hands on, much to my consternation as I would throw those filthy polyhedrons in the fire given half the chance, which is somewhat ironic given our website name.
