You there! Yes, you! Don’t be shy — come closer!

Is this your first time at the tables, or have you been here before? Come closer and have a seat! Have a drink on the house! Have a roll for free! This could be your lucky day!

We’ve got games aplenty: some old, some new, some familiar, some that haven’t even been invented yet, some that never will be. We’ve got games underwater, in the desert, in the city, and even all the way in space! We’ve got handsome dealers, dashing rogues, powerful businessmen, charming thieves, beautiful escorts, and more, all here, just waiting for you to draw a card. We’ve got danger, daring, excitement, adventure, high stakes, cheap thrills, blood, love, and a whole lot more — so put your chips all in! Every table tonight could be your lucky table, every draw has the chance to send you home a winner. One roll could change everything. And you know what they say: you can’t win if you don’t play.

So remember: have a good evening, don’t forget to tip your authors and artists, and if you find yourself lacking anything, just ring your bell and ask for us. We’re your Editors.
