Warning: This podcast contains strong language and adult content Join the PhC boys for Episode 145 as Andy discovers his lucky totem that allows him to make it to and from Airecon without his car breaking down. Steve accedentally creates what is sure to be the best fabric softener in the history of fabric softners. Sid invents a new word #Begrumble, and Rory awards himself the board game equivalent of the Victoria Cross for playing his least favourite game on the BGG Top 100. They also discuss the highlights and the further highlights of Airecon, which unsurprisingly consists of food, beer, and board games (in that order), including: a chaotic and hilarious game of Heat from Days of Wonder, the light and delightful "revesres action-programming" Faraway from Catch Up Games/Hachette, and challenging, almost dinner-reservation-missing, Side Quest Nemesis from Board & Dice. A quick dip into the mail bag reveals thier most hated "popular" game and an announcement that if you are not already following Polyhedron Collider onInstagram, now might be a good time to do so as there is an upcoming competion supported by show sponsor Kienda!

Episode 143 - Expeditions, Scythe, and Scholars of the South Tigris

2/19/2024
Warning: This podcast contains strong language and adult content The Polyhedron Collider Cast is back with another episode packed with tabletop gaming chatter. In this episode, our hosts, Steve, Andy, Sid, and Rory, bring us breaking news that's set to change the game – literally. We're talking about a new sponsorship deal with Kienda that's as exciting for the listeners as it is for the podcast. With a special QR code discount for board game purchases, it's a win-win for everyone involved. But that's just the beginning. The episode takes a playful turn with discussions ranging from selling body parts for board games (yes, you read that right) to the possibility of wearing sponsored pyjamas. The meat of the episode, however, lies in the thoughtful and in-depth discussions of two board games that have captured the hosts' attention: 'Expeditions' and 'Scholars of the South Tigris.' We'll also be answering listener questions, including a trip down memory lane as we attempt to recall the very first games we played with each other. Expect a blend of nostalgia, confusion, and the usual banter as we try to piece together our gaming origins.
