Buzz In: What Board Games Would You Like to See as Movies?

Earlier this week, we learned that Peter Berg will be directing a movie based on the board game Battleship. A couple of years ago, I joked about other potential films based on my childhood toys, but now I'm approaching the matter with a whole new attitude. This is no longer a laughing matter; these projects are going forward into production. Don't Break the Ice: The Movie may be just around the corner.

The Battleship movie sounds like it's going to be pretty heavy — ship fleets engaged in violent battle and what not — but I'd rather explore the lighter side of the genre. Personally, I've always been curious about what the peppermint forest from Candy Land would actually look like, and I'm sure there's some exec in Hollywood who's already dreaming up some amazing, 3-D, sweet, sweet world for me. What about you — no matter how far-fetched, what board games would you like to see on the big screen?

Totally none. But if I had to chose a board game... I'd be interested to see how they might revamp Perfection. (Pop! Goes Perfection!...anyone?)

uhh; none? why? on a kind of unrelated side note - I always thought that there are certain songs that would make interesting stories - like the story of The Eagles's "Hotel California." I don't know if that sounds stupid but it's something I have always thought about; I don't know why. The song is just so mysterious; it leaves me wanting to know more of the story...

I think Candy land would make a great movie but it would def have to be in 3d to get the full effect.

Candyland has some potential. I was always oddly fascinated with that game
