Other writers for the game have followed suit. Expanding the paradigm by continuing…

Today, I received the dice bag I recently ordered from Greyed Out and I am super excited to get it. My previous velour bag is old and beginning to show its age to the world; much to my chagrin. The measure of a veteran gamer (regardless of genre) is the ability to smartly carry their dice…
