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...

Pocket Sports has been going through some changes, as most may have noticed.

 

Games are slowly changing over to the 'next gen' tuck box series. Not only that, but games are now classified as 'dice & card' games.

Not being a diehard baseball fan though, I needed more time and feedback from cousi...

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...
