From the Big Screen to the Table: How Board Games Are Adapting Movies – What’s the Difference?

Must read


For years, we’ve been researching the best movie adaptations around. How Books Turn Into Movies is an interesting study, but we don’t often immerse ourselves in movies that turn into something else. Board games offer a fascinating glimpse into a different kind of adaptation, which distills a movie’s theme, characters, and plot into a playable, immersive tabletop experience. So get your thumbnails ready to go as we take a look at the surprisingly in-depth journey from screen to cardboard taken by some great movies of all time. It’s time to ask what’s the difference? And we’re not talking about Monopoly or Clue re-skinning. These are board game adaptations that really dig into their source material. We’re talking about a James Cameron action flick becoming playable on your dining room table with Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps. Immerse yourself in the psyche of Robert Muldoon and face off against these clever raptor girls in Jurassic Park Unmatched. Play through your favorite 007 movie from Goldfinger to Goldeneye as James Bond in Legendary. Yipee Kay Yay your mom makes her way through Die Hard in a Nakatomi Heist game where you can play as John McClane or Hans Gruber. Confront the empire in a galaxy far distant with Star Wars Rebellion. All of these games go way beyond just slapping IP on a familiar board. These are real adaptations and to read them properly you have to understand why you like movies in the first place. Want to know more about each of these franchises? CineFix and IGN Movies & TV are here for you.
