Fall Plans

Over the long weekend we all sat down to go over our clandars and sort out schedules for school and work and other activities and appointments and such. Looks like it’s going to be a busy fall and winter with all the extra yoga and dance and music and theatre classes lined up. Keira is taking six - SIX! – dance classes and volunteering at another for dancers with special needs! Both kids are taking Improv. Amanda and I are both taking two dance classes (Irish for me, a Burlesque Group dance class for Amanda and we’re taking a Ballroom Dance class together!)… Cello… violin… Amanda’s teaching FOUR regular yoga classes… it’s a little crazy!We did manage to set aside a few times a week for games, though – mostly on the weekends!GAMESFriday Night is Boardgame night – Ostensibly a FAMILY boardgame night, but I’m not forcing anyone to play. The idea is to pick a game we’ll play on Friday evening, see who is interested in playing, if the kids aren’t I’ll see if other friends are interested. I’ve decided to further re

Kickstarter Highlights 3rd September

Did you miss me?  It’s okay, I understand, look we all need a little break from Kickstarter now and then, and sometimes there just isn’t enough new stuff to warrant bringing to your eyeballs.  Here at Polyhedron Collider we don’t simply pay lip service to any old campaign, no, we’re only going to talk about games we (well, at least one of us) is actually interested in, or in Andy’s case, are backing backing.  So, this week we have a heavy wargame, a book, some asymmetrical shenanigans and a very challenging co-op. Read more »

Boardgames – Zombicide: Black Plague

Hello! Zombicide: The Black Plague is one of my favorite board games. It’s fast, it’s really fun and it lets you have a good time with your friends. We play as a team of heroes whose task is to survive in a zombie-controlled city. Replayability is really big and the expansions only extend the life of this title. I highly recommend additional abominations and Wulfsburg! The game has many great figures, which quite recently came to our our painting team. Below you will find a photo gallery with heroes, basic abomination and necromancer. If you would like to have your models painted – minisforwar@gmail.com or Messenger.
