Pour yourself a large glass of your tipple of choice, get yourself comfy, and get ready for another session of top quality board gaming chat from the boys at Polyhedron Collider.

Jon’s news ferrets have been hard at work, gathering the latest news and the hottest Kickstarter. When it comes to games, Steve is getting sticky with Folded Space and Vektorace, Andy goes down to the woods with Root and Jon conquers the solar system in Onward to Venus.

We then dive into the mailbag, and have a surprisingly mature discussion when we are asked if the board game bubble is about to burst.
