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.
