The Polyhedral Universe is a column dedicated to gamers and the world of games, particularly table-top games. There will be articles reviewing new games, especially those created by independent companies to include miniatures rules games, role play games, board games, and collectible card games. I will discuss gaming at conventions within the United States. Whenever possible, I will write and post interviews of game designers. I will not, however, review electronic games or game systems as there are plenty of forums dedicated to that aspect.
