To celebrate the launch of the Kickstarter for Dark Ages, the new game from Adam Kwapiński, designer of Lords of Hellas and Nemesis, we are launching a very special competition in association with our god friends at Board & Dice.

Dark Ages is a historically-based civilization-building game that features an innovative action selection mechanism. As long as your action markers remain on the board, you may be able to gain secondary bonus actions whenever you or another player repeats the action.

While Dark Ages features objectives commonly found in 4X games — encouraging you to explore nearby regions, expand your territory, exploit the resources, and exterminate your opponents — it does so featuring several Euro-centric mechanisms. Collect resources from lands under your control, using them to build up your cities and fortifications. Some building types provide several ways for you to gain important in-game advantages, while others enhance your military strength or simply score you victory points. As you expand your territory, you will lay claim to noble titles, acquire new technologies, and train your military units. Each region and leader offer asymmetrical choices with their unique abilities.

Dark Ages launches on 16th March and you could win yourself a copy. The winner will receive a copy of Dark Ages including all stretch goals, with free worldwide shipping to anywhere except Brazil, Libya, Syria, the Philippines, Reunion and Venezuela. The winner will also be provided with a letter bestowing upon them the title of Champion of the Unified Kingdom.

To win this prize we want you to design a heraldry or coat of arms for Polyhedron Collider. Send that design to us in any format you want, but please send all entry to steve@polyhedroncollider.com

You have until 20 March 2020 to submit your design.
