We all know the FIFA World Cup is on this year in Russia, but next year, the Rugby World Cup is on in Japan!

The Blossoms (the national rugby side of Japan) will have the weight of a nation on them as they host the other powerhouse nations in the pinnacle of rugby tourn...

 As another season of Christmas catalogues loom and production runs need to be decided on, a decision to bring back the beloved dice bag original packaging is once again on the table.

2014 saw the release of games 5 & 6, Pocket Rugby & Pocket Basketball bringing a mix of mechanics from the previous games. We wanted to improve the opponent inclusion in the games and these two games saw some changes.

Each new game I design tends to start the same way, but finishes in ways I hadn't considered when beginning.

 

Pocket Tennis is nice, simple and captures a solid tennis theme. Two players, back and forth. The dice will tell you much of what's happening but I've inclu...

Both......or it soon will be. Those fans lucky enough to get one of the Pocket Rugby League sets will soon have a true collecitble......It will soon be discountinued and a new Pocket Rugby 'Hybrid' will take it's place.
