Breaking news

So rumor on the street is that there’s a worldwide shortage of FUDGE dice caused by the emergence of a Dresden Files game using the mechanic.

I’m happy to say that I was cool and using FUDGE dice years, YEARS before the bandwagon fans did. My house is well supplied with FUDGE dice, as well as enough D12s for a whole HORDE of barbarians.

We have an unreasonable amount of dice. Grey could correctly conjugate die/dice by age 2.


In slightly less geeky news, batch 3 of plum jam is popping away on the counter. It still looks darker than last year’s magic batch. I wish I knew what varietal it was. I’m pretty sure these aren’t damson plums, and from what I’ve read I may have to track down some damsons for yet another batch, because they sound awesome.

Grey brought one of his Star Wars books to school today and read it to his class. I wonder if he pronounced the “r”s? It’s funny what even an open-minded parent like myself won’t put up with.

OK. Dice shortages and yet another jam update. That’s a sign that I should leave you all to your sweet dreams!

One thought on “Breaking news”

  1. We’ve had to put all of DS1’s dice away, because he kept leaving them out for the baby to find. I think even a big D12 is a choking hazard…

    Love the jam updates. I had a flurry of black raspberry and redcurrant&raspberry, then ran out of steam. No peach this year, I think.

    I’ve been resisting the urge to plug my hubby’s gaming podcast but this post pushed me over the edge – sorry! Check out www dot gameopolis dot org. (They’re family-friendly, too – no naughty words).
