Crapshoot: The James Bond sport starring ‘John Glames’


From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about rolling the cube to deliver random obscure video games again into the sunshine. This week, one in all James Bond’s PC adventures. Kind of his, anyway…

The identify’s Glames. John Glames. At the least, in Europe.
