After a couple weeks of bus-reading, I’ve finally finished my copy of The Bones, published by Gameplaywright and edited by Will Hindmarch, and behold, it was good.
For the uninitiated, it’s a book of essays about dice and the gamers who use them. The essays range from historical articles on the history of dice (really, I had no idea they were so ancient and ubiquitous!), personal anecdotes, philosophical musings, and game design theories. In short, if you’ve ever bought set of dice in a tube, there’s something for you here in this book.
