I've played this game several times, and though I've always thought the gameplay would lend itself to a narrative, I've never had the wherewithal to record the detail of a game. Luckily we have this gamer who's done the work for us. Bravo!

The man, the myth, the legend. Winner of two "Session Report of the Year" awards, this reporter's style is unlike any other. Six years later, I'm sure his son is still kicking his butt in boardgames...and isn't that what all us gamer parents want to have happen? Excellent read!

All I can say is that it makes me feel just a little bit better knowing that someone out there has the same kind of luck (or perhaps even worse) with dice than I do! As for the writing itself, the clipped, terse style helps build the suspense. An excellent job of narrative writing!
