“Every day right now is a total crapshoot. Like you wake up in the morning and what’s going on? You wanna check your phone, see what weird news is happening or what’s going on, so it’s a crapshoot,” says Denny, explaining the origin of the game’s name.

And it is a game like no other.

It includes 36 different scenarios, which are settled by rolling a pair of dice. the results can be poetic or socially awkward. It’s all for a good cause. the game goes for 80 dollars, with 50 per cent of the profit going to the Rapid Relief Fund.

“Well, I thought it was great when everybody stepped up to the plate and you realize what a great community we live in. Being one of the guys that’s less fortunate without a lot of money at least I have a good sense of humour. So I came up with this idea, it would be something I could sell,” says Denny.
