Got an Axe to Grind?

Looking for a copy of Armies of Oblivion? On 1 July 2013, we will raffle off a copy of this highly sought after, out-of-print module. Keep reading to learn how you can get your mits on these Axis Minors.
We have been so busy that we have yet to finish posting the results of our 1 March raffle earlier this year. Do not despair. We will announce the winner in the coming weeks. Come July, we will announce the winners of the raffles held on 1 April, 1 May, and 1 June. At that time, we will also announce the winner of our 1 July raffle. 
Canada Day marks the second anniversary of our blog Sitrep. To celebrate, we had intended to give away a copy of Rising Sun, the much anticipated module covering the Pacific Theatre. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to revise our plans. Fortunately, we were able to acquire a ziploc copy of Armies of Oblivion. Keen to own the green meanies? Here is your chance to score them.
The module contains the newer, cardstock mapboards. The only thing missing is the box, and dice. We cannot do anything about the box. But we can do something about the dice. The winner of our Canada Day raffle will also receive our Axes to Grind Pack. The pack contains five 12.5mm BattleDice, one die for each of the nationalities included in Armies of Oblivion. Each of the Axis Minors had at least one axe to grind with their neighbours, and frequently with each other. Although our Axis Minor dice are designed to be paired with our black, 12.5mm Rate of Fire dice, they will also work with any coloured, precision, 12.5mm backgammon die.
