With some joy I arrived home yesterday afternoon, to find a white manila envelope half sticking out of my letterbox, embossed with a clear blue ‘Crooked Dice’ logo; My Crooked Dice 7TV2 Directors kit had arrived!

Graeme and Karl – the bigwigs over at Crooked Dice – have put out a shout for Directors – demonstrators with a love of the game, who would be prepared to take 7TV2 to local clubs and shows… and as ever, I am always keen to be promoting small independent gaming!
