When that Dungeons & Dragons itch strikes but you don’t want to deal with cranky DMs, there is the TSR Dungeon board game.
Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is one of my favorite classic movies. It did such a spectacular job of visualizing the Jules Verne novel and really brought the book alive for me. Part of what makes the story so compelling is Captain Nemo, He’s driven by noble goals, but his pursuit of them is flawed at best, immoral at worst. So the idea of a board game where your task is to navigate the Nautilus away from gun boats that would prevent Nemo’s somewhat dastardly plan seems like a bit of a flawed concept.
Still a cool game though.
