Katanas & Trenchcoats (Custom) – Sean’s Pick, 040215

Seriously, how can I not Pick this one?!? I didn’t post this yesterday because, while it is a “joke” product in some ways, Katanas & Trenchcoats, Episode 1: Welcome to Darkest Vancouver also a legitimate and very cool game. It’s catching like wildfire for a reason. There’s a rule about how, after rolling all 0’s, everything just explodes while you walk away slowly.
