Regular readers will be aware of the general contempt in which I hold co-operative games. Yet Arkham Horror, Robinson Crusoe and the D&D Adventure System are all games I rate highly.

Creatures move, events change, players need to actually co-operate due to the complexity and uncertainty.

Broadway play adaptions to the big screen can often be awkward, but here the performances are beyond good enough to make up the difference. One of the problems of plays being on the big screen is it often seems that characters are in their own soliloquies, completely oblivious to the presence of other actors/characters beside them. In other words you know how Tarantino films hyper-realistic dialogues? His screenplays are made for the big screen.
