Same here. Don't stand a chance; I might get to play it once (if lucky) but then it'd never get played again.

Board games on a computer site? It must really be a boring day in the world of computers.
Or someone was bribed to push this thing during the Holiday season.
Guess which I suspect. :(

The only reason there haven't been any major films so far is because he refused to sell the rights for so long - and I read that Sam Raimi, Danny Boyle and Terry Gilliam have all expressed interest in adapting some of his stories.
I really can't see why this shouldn't be reviewed on here, as I think there's quite a large crossover from people who are interested in technology & computer games and those who are interested in fantasy/fiction & board games - especially when concerning a board game in the run up to Christmas.
I think the notion of bribery to put this up is pretty silly really....
