Delve – into Carcassonne

OK things have gotten a little too dark with Cthulhu so part 3 will be after a quick break.

As I was sat in my local board gaming shop, one of my friends was playing this game…

Delta Green – Playing the Black Sheep

Last week I gave an example of a character with good intentions and poor method with the example of John Kramer, the “antagonist” of the SAW series.
