Gaming in Ancient Rome

December 1, 2003

Any RPGers out there? No that’s not just any beat up old gaming die, that’s a beat up old gaming die from ancient Rome. Christie’s is auctioning it off and expects to get $4-$6K for it. I hope the geek that buys it can abstain from actually using it in next Friday’s game. Link via […]

Return of The Far Side

October 6, 2003

About a month ago I wrote that Berke Breathed was bringing Opus back in November. I also said nothing would make me happier than having Gary Larson’s The Far Side back. Well what the heck do you know but I open the comics this morning and there in the lower right corner of the comics […]

The object of the game is to score the most points by rolling five dice to make […]

Minnesota State Fair

August 30, 2003

Somehow what with vacation and work schedules I find myself not attending the Minnesota State Fair for the first time in many, many years.
