One of my duties for the Northamptonshire Battlefield Society is to find speakers and get them to come and talk to us. Luckily I know one or two people who will talk abut something a bit different. One of them is John, a retired senior civil servant, who has spoken to us in the past about the SOE/OSS bases in the county during WW2, and the implications of the Cuban Missile Crisis for Northamptonshire. This year he came and spoke about Nazi spies who were parachuted into the county (there were two - it didn't end well for them).
As John has to come a little way, Mrs T and I put him up over night, which means there's time for a game. He was very keen to have a go at "It Rolls for Ivan", so I took the opportunity to put a game on and play it as it was originally designed, as a two player face to face game. Don't get me wrong, it works great as a multi-player and/or Zoom streamed game, but it is nice to play it as I intended, and also play myself, instead of umpiring.
