A Fistful of Carnage Math Trade Coming Soon!

A blue cup spills many multi-colored dice onto the table.

Matt Golec, friend of Carnage, trusty organizer of math trades past, and co-designer of Penny Press, asked we pass on the word that the Game With No Name, a no-ship math trade coinciding with this year’s A Fistful of Carnage at Killington, is indeed in the offing:
