Re: The Dice Tower, Episode # 77 - Interview with Mark Jacks
The idea is that people email me a list of games they would play, I will then see what the best format is - a knockout, league etc.

If you are keen then email me and tell me the games you'd play!

I really liked the Mark Jackson interview segment. Thought provoking and interesting. Only wish it was longer.

Just wanted to agree with this. The interview with Mr. Jackson is one of your best, Tom. It was really interesting.
