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.
