As always I share my recent gaming experiences with you and use this article as a sort of collection of mini-reviews of board and card games! I’ve played some great games over the last few weeks, some new to me and some old. One game in particular was very surprising to me and I hope if you get the chance to play it you will. We got a lot of laughs!

I didn’t think that this inexpensive, small-box game would appeal to me at all.
Boy, was I wrong…

Artisan Dice make some of the most beautiful dice I’ve ever seen, and I’ve always wanted a set. Some of the latest I’ve seen, from their Necromancer’s Dice set, are of an even higher level of beauty… and price. The price however, doesn’t make me want them less! The dice pictured above are made of American Bison horn. Artisan Dice makes dice from all sorts of material, however, and they are equally gorgeous.
