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.
Krull was a 1983 fantasy movie set on a distant planet named Krull. An evil being simply called “The Beast” has invaded the planet. In an attempt to stave off his army of slayers, the son and daughter of rival kingdoms are set to marry so they can unite to fight off the Beast. But, of course, the Beast has other plans and kidnaps the girl. The rest of the movie is spent hunting down the Beast’s fortress. And there you have the set up for this board game! Race to the Black Fortress and princess!
