Episode 86 of Polyhedron Collider is the best tabletop gaming podcast ever made, and anyone who says otherwise is wrong!

The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the news about that Restoration Games trademarking the name Heroquest Legacy. We get excited about the chance to play the best board game ever made in legacy format, and quote lines from the best YouTube video ever made.

The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the review of Agra. Curry is the finest meal in all the land, and perfect for feeding to tired workers in this Indian themed euro worker placement board game.

The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the discussion about Everdell. Look at the badgers, the foxes, the weasel, and the enormous tree that blocking the board. Actually, forget about the tree. Lets just put the cards on the table.

The best thing about Polyhedron Collider is the review of Alien the roleplaying game. Explore the bleak expanse of cold dead space, while being terrorised Xenomorphs ready to rip out you throat and spill acidic blood all over you.

Games Mentioned
00:06:21 Spiel des Jahres winners announced
00:11:27 Heroquest Legacy
00:17:51 Agra
00:29:59 Everdell

The entire Polyhedron Collider crew is back, for what feels like the first time in forever. It does mean we talk about Jon's lack of sleep, but it also means we can have a damn good chat about board games and tabletop RPGs.

We discuss news about the latest adventure for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Rime of the Frostmaiden, and lament the lack of high level campaigns before venturing into the world of video games with Elite Dangerous, Frostpunk and Baldurs Gate 3. With the news of a new battlemap editor in Inkarnate, we discuss the merits and flaws of Inkarnate, Dungeon Painter Studio and Campaign Cartographer.

Sticking with the theme, the Andy and Steve talk about Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale. Andy then has to decide between Roll Player Adventures and buying a new kitchen floor before we have a good long chat about our experiences with Star Trek Adventures the Tabletop RPG from Modiphius.

Games Mentioned
00:11:50 Shobu
00:14:40 Rime of the Frostmaiden for Dungeons & Dragons 5E
00:21:23 Baldurs Gate 3
00:25:00 Frostpunk the Boardgame
00:30:01 Inkarnate (D&D map making tool) now has battlemaps. A comparison between Inkarnate, Dungeondraft, Dungeon Painter Studio and Campaign Cartographer
00:41:22 Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale
00:48:26 3D printers and a bit of a rant from Steve
00:54:43 Roll Player Adventures
01:07:56 Star Trek Adventures RPG
