Tower of dice

DTW_pb_01

A sophisticated, lazy (as you don’t even have to move it) version of a dice cup – that’s the way I would define the dice tower. Going by the wiki definition though “it’s an object used by players to throw dice fairly. The dice fall from the top of the tower and bounce off various platforms inside, until they reappear in front. The purpose of the tower is to eliminate some forms of cheating used when throwing dice by hand. There are many forms of towers differing in assembly and construction”.

Only after a hundred years, when Hideyoshi Toyotomi subordinates the Hōjō clan and unites all the provinces, the fighting for domination comes to an end. Today we will assume the roles of samurai, participants in this hundred-year struggle, in a quick card game – Zipang Portable.

Cybernoir onion

AND_pb_01

On that hot night we burned ICE, from the window in the distance one could see a constantly working Beanstalk. Outside, a myriad neon lights that never slept attracting hundreds of moths, but in Raymond’s room only the monitor screen emanated with bleak light – except for the LEDs on the casing of Cyberdeck. It looked fairly ordinary, a standard Haas CS-7, but I’ve modified it so many times, you couldn’t find a trace of the original circuits in it. From time to time we’d manage to peel another layer of the conspiracy onion…
