The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 27: The Great UK Games Expo Caper Part 2
 

Jon is back! And so Steve and Andy regale him with some more exciting game we played at the UK Games Expo and talk about some 100% fresh board games and tabletop gaming Kickstarters.

We build theme parks, we go to sea and raid as a Viking and then divvy out the spoils of war, go fishing and become estate agents and detectives. We also discuss drinking songs and how pasties are hotter than the core of the Sun.

Sorry for the audio quality in this episode – we have had a myriad of problems throughout.

UK Games Expo 2017: Batman the Boardgame

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.

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.

UK Games Expo 2017 – The Show in pictures

Posted on June 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

The UK Games Expo was held between 2nd – 4th June 2017 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. I thought I’d share some pictures of the weekend, including a number of the games that I mentioned in the podcasts. The trade hall for the show was in Hall 1 of the NEC. This was a pretty big area, and this year was filled with trade stands and areas to play games. Day One Friday was spent in the press preview, wandering around playing a few games, grabbing interviews and taking photos. Our podcast about Friday can be found here Dust 1947 U-Boat The Board Game Unfortunately the interview I recorded with Phalanx games about this wasn’t useable. This looks a really interesting game – it’s a co-operative game where players take the roles of various crew on the U-Boat: Captain, First Officer, Navigator, Engineer. The game is run using an app, and the crew have to respond to various scenarios that occur in real time whilst attempting to complete their mission. This is Das Boot on a board. A really interesting concept – and yes, it’s coming to Kickstarter soon. Gloom over Kilforth & 1066: Tears for Many Mothers Beautiful […]

Shades of Vengeance are attending the UK Games Expo…

30th May 2017

Shades of Vengeance at UKGE

Shades of Vengeance will be attending UKGE and are bringing a lot with us! Here are a few highlights:
Survival Kickstarter Main Image
Era: Survival currently has an active Kickstarter, “Expansions into Darkness”.
This Kickstarter offers multiple expansions, with the number increasing as Stretch Goals are met! It’s just £10 get at least 3 (The Swarm Faction Source Book, the Infected Manual and Tales of the Outlands). These top-quality, full-colour expansions add to the Core Rulebook.
And if you don’t already have the Core Rulebook, don’t worry, there’s a chance to get hold of either that or the enhanced Definitive Edition Rulebook, which contains a number of extras which were cut from the original for length reasons!
Join us at: http://www.tinyurl.com/survival-expansions
drive
Era: Lyres Pocket Edition, the second version of our second roleplaying game, has been entered for a UKGE Award!
In Era: Lyres, you play as people who aren’t adventurers (that’s way too dangerous!). Instead, you tell stories of your “amazing adventures” to the people of Yarnolth who, in turn, shower you with money and glory.
Hop into the nearest tavern and get going with your story with the full-colour Pocket Edition of this rulebook for just £5! It’s available from the Shades of Vengeance stand at UKGE, and the creator is around to talk about it as well!
Champion of Earth image
Last year, we brought Champion of Earth to UKGE as a prototype, and several people gave it a try.
Since then, we’ve completed the game and had a successful Kickstarter! You’ll be able to buy it from our stand for the first time at UKGE.
This year, we’ve brought some more prototypes to test out on you, so if you’re interested in finding out what we’re creating, drop by and find out!
This newsletter is sent to you by UK Games Expo on behalf of Shades of Vengeance who has sponsored and provided this content to inform you about themselves and their plans for their stand at UK Games Expo.

Getting Reading for the UK Games Expo #1 – MeepsMeet

Posted on May 31st, 2017 under , . Posted by

The UK Games Expo starts this Friday – June 2nd 2017, and runs until Sunday, 4th June. For the first time I will be attending all three days of the show, and yesterday we found out that the Welsh Wizzard himself , Mike Hobbs,will also be there on Saturday 3rd June, although whether he will turn up in cosplay is anyone’s guess! We have decided to have the first ever MeepsMeet on Saturday – so if you listen to the podcast, are going to the UK Games Expo, and fancy meeting up with us for a chat and maybe the odd photo or two, we will be at the corner of D10 and E18 at 1pm on Saturday 3rd June. D10 is the Fantasy Flight Games area, and you can’t miss E18 – This is the Wotan Games stand, and looks like this: See you there!Filed under: Shows / Conventions / Events / Stores Tagged: UK Games Expo
