Rollers With Tony

June 28, 2017:

Press your luck dice games have been a staple in many gamers’ collections for decades. In fact, one of my earliest games, outside the standard game closet, was Sid Saxon’s CAN’T STOP. It was the luck of the dice mixed with bit of scoring strategy that made this game so appealing. Many games since have gone on to meet the needs for the love of rolling dice.

A few years ago, we were in Chicago for the Chicago Toy & Game Fair, to meet with game designers and inventors as well as having a booth at the public event. As Chicago is home to so much history for the toy and game industry, it was only natural to meet with some of the local folks and inventor teams too.
