Remember those dire crabs?

My boyfriend thought it would be great to design this idea I had earlier that I mentioned here (I didn't do it myself and wouldn't want to take the credit). Thought I'd share the results.

I really didn't get good use out of them last game due to my players piddling around and socializing instead of gaming, but I plan to utilize them in the next couple of weeks to their full potential.
