Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault – Zarbag’s Gitz

Zarbags Gitz were one of the first warbands released for Nightvault, late last year and with the recent release of the Gloomspitze Gitz it makes sense to take a closer look at them.

Discover: Lands Unknown

This weekend is all about board games. I have a friend down for the weekend and that is pulling another friend over to mine. We have been playing a few games but the most fun for me has been Discover - Lands Unknown. I got it for Christmas and it has been a game I have had my eye on it for a while so was quite happy.It's a game about survival in a range of different environments. Each biome has its own challenges and environmental effects. Each box comes with two of the potential six regions that are available.The balance of resources is key on each board. On top of that there is a plot. Each scenario has a story which unfolds as the exploration takes place. After playing the game this seems to make it a nice touch but I can't say too much without giving the plot away.Concepts about survival within the game seem pretty sound although not especially detailed. Obviously you need the basics but gear can be made and what you scavenge is important. It concentrates on food and water but seems to bypass shelter alto

News Collider - Board Game News 10/4/19 Root, Border Lands, Tomb Raider, Flotilla, Bus and TTR London

Due to some unknown administrative oversight, we didn't release a news article last week. In fact the entire Polyhedron Collider team didn’t do a damn thing last week. Now I have a valid excuse, I’ve got a new job and I’m trying to reevaluate the whole work/life balance (or should that be work/board game/life balance?). Steve and Andy obviously decided they just couldn’t be bothered. I think stronger leadership is required and will soon be making my bid to oust Steve as head of the organisation.Internal politics and lazy writers aside, it's actually been a quiet couple of weeks in the world of tabletop gaming but that doesn’t mean that plenty of board game and role playing game shenanigans haven’t been going on. We’ve got news from the Borderlands, Waterworld and London, and more buses than a National Express depot.Read more »

Hanamikoji Review

Hanamikoji will grab you by the short ones as soon as it hits the table.  From the moment that first card is drawn, you’ll be engaged, engrossed and you’ll love almost every agonising minute of this short, two-player game.  What Hanamikoji does—and does really, really well—is that it realises that a great game is not one that poses a multitude of choices, but forces important choices.  Read more »
