Nothing against the game. I haven’t played it yet. I’ve been WANTING to, but haven’t been able to get game, friends and enough booze together to make that happen yet.
So, like I said this is nothing against the game. A lot of gamer buddies say it’s a ton of fun. This I do not dispute.
However a MOVIE? Or even harder still…a TV SHOW? I think that may be a bridge too far. Movies based on games have been awful to say the least.
Granted now, the result the other way is often just as bad. Good movies and TV shows usually make for some AWFUL games. It’s more about marketing than playability.
Where they aren’t disasters, movie-to-game adaptations are usually just names slapped on an existing game… like Star Wars Monopoly… or Harry Potter Monopoly… or Mario Brothers Monopoly.
My point is that I don’t hold up high hopes for Settlers of Catan. At best it’ll have nothing to do with the actual game and has nothing to do with the search for wood.
