""African games don't sell," people say. "People can't identify with African character art." "Medieval Africa hasn't got the variety and flavor of medieval Europe." "Players aren't comfortable with an African-flavored setting." These are the words of Kevin Crawford, designer of Spears of the Dawn, a decidedly old-school tabletop game with a medieval African feel.

It's 11pm and I'm sliding the number 24 into its numerical clone. The game then alerts me that I've discovered a new character: 48! That must be a good thing. The screen begins to fill with blue '1s' and red '2s' and I strategically shuffle each row around, adding them together to make threes, matching threes to make sixes and so on.

"The there are several heads here, sticking out of the water. Most are screaming, horrific blood-curdling screams," I wait for the players to take the bait.

It's now been five years since this blog popped into existence on the internet. I've been quiet for the past few weeks, thinking about how I can take The Trollish Delver forward into 2014 - how to keep it fresh and relevant.

If I get bored, TD stagnates and I have to face facts that I do, believe it or not, have regular readers who enjoy my content.
