Our longtime friend Dan Akkbar Hardwicke is back on the scene with a new a business venture. He's leveraged his considerable street cred in the online space sim community to secure a sweet deal with the makers of the defunct Freespace Tactics board game. For just dollars on the penny, he's purchased 20,000 bulk sets of Freespace dice. Asked whether or not this was a wise investment, Hardwick replied, "I mean, they exist, so why wouldn't people buy them?" If he's right, fans of the series will soon be able to accurately reenact the exciting adventures of Alpha 1 with a handful of colorful blocks.
