Review: Hrothgar's Hoard Bard Magnetic Dice Box

Review: Hrothgar’s Hoard Bard Magnetic Dice Box

NecroVirus is the most exciting thing I saw at Gen Con. Period. Nothing else even came close.  While this post is a review of the game “NecroVirus” it also is my ecstatic report of what I see as the future business model of  tabletop gaming, 3D printing.
