Content

This isn't about math. 
It's about unlucky breaks and victory against all odds.
This isn't about percentiles and probabilities.
It's about late-night game-ending rolls where everything hinges on that climactic moment when one single die skitters across the table and determines the fate of a hero, a city, an empire...
The Bones gathers writing about fandom and family about gamers, camaraderie, and memories and ties them together where they meet: our dice.
These are essays and anecdotes about the ways dice make us crazy, about the stakes we play for, and about the thrill we get from not knowing what the next roll will bring.
Step back and look at how we play with dice.

  •     Jeff and Will at gameplaywright are masters at deconstructing gamers and the people who play them. They approach the their work with scholarly eyes and geeky hearts, and that can be felt throughout The Bones. This collection of essays by game industry luminaries gets to the core of how I feel about my dice, so much so that I'm pretty sure I nodded along through each one.If you've ever found yourself praying for a natural 20 or cursing your dice for abandoning you for an entire game session, do yourself a favor and pick up The Bones.
