Adventure Party #26 – Movies That Could Be RPGs

Play

In this meeting, we discuss movies that seemed like they came from gaming sessions. Regardless of the genre, there are some movies that look and feel like the came from a D&D, Cyberpunk 2020, Dark Conspiracy or Champions session. We pick our movies that give us that feel, why we think that, and possible systems those movies could have come from.

Glenn’s Review:

Glenn reviewed Luchador! Mexican Wrestling dice game, more specifically the second edition that comes with the 3D dice ring. We both marveled at the game mechanics and the stories of each of the characters that you can play. You can hit, pin, and counter your opponents dice. You can even knock the dice out of the ring to eliminate some of there rolls against you. It’s a 2-4 player game that has an average play time of 15 minutes.

This game looks truly fascinating. It’s a 1960’s era game of running your airline and getting your flights filled and on their way. You must move your planes through the JFK airport and deal with weather, food, and other is issues your opponents can throw your way and sabotage your business.
